SWAT scanner is saying suspect is wearing a suicide jacket.  Damn that black hoodie.

Being used as sandbags for the snipers to lie behind.

they have called in The Ram. (the capitals were seriously implied)

Scanner calling for battering ram. Calling for swat also and giving house # where suspect maybe hiding.
 
2013-04-19 08:43:03 AM
Suspect might be in 25, 23, 15, or 17. Waiting on swat to cover. 2119 is a green 2120 is a tan house, keep cover.

Dynascape: kwame: Dynascape: ...and someone is DDos'ing Reddit this morning.

fark all this shiat.

*flips table*

On the scale of things anyone should give a sh*t about, that falls down somewhere near not having a clean spoon to stir your coffee.

You know, I had that predicament this morning Kwame.

I had this spoon sitting next to the coffee pot. I wasnt sure if it was clean. It was a mystery spoon. So many questions. So little time. It was a moment of deep reflection.

I used the spoon anyway.


This might be the best story you've ever told

FrancoFile: Fissile: Wait, I'm confused.  Aren't Chechens some of the "good Muslims" that Murica aided and abetted in attacking the Russians?  Didn't the US of Murica repeatedly condemn the Russians for dropping cluster bombs on these "good Muslims"?   It appears that these Chechens made their way here from Turkey.  Isn't Turkey a "good Muslim" country that is a solid friend to Murica, and, even more importantly, a good friend to Israel?  Wasn't Bin Laden armed by Murica when he was killing Russians?  Sure is funny how the "good Muslims" that the US encourages to attack the Russians always seem to end up turning on Murica.

Um, no.

The Chechens are not 'good Muslims' and the US has never supported them.  They are ethnic gangsters, pure and simple, and their religion just makes it easier for them to get support from radical Islamists in other countries.


=============

Your tiny Fox News contaminated mind can't admit the truth, can it?   The US has REPEATEDLY CONDEMNED THE RUSSIANS FOR DEFENDING THEMSELVES FROM THE CHECHENS.   Every time the Chechens blew up a grade school in Russia, Dick Cheney would cream himself. So, to sum up, FARK YOU.

Disabled List: Three scenarios as I see it:

 - It's something organized, a terror cell with funding from overseas.  This is the worst scenario, because it means we're strapping our boots back on for another Asian land war.  But I think this is also the least likely scenario.  This just doesn't seem professional enough for something like that.

 - These two had horrific experiences from their childhoods that they've held onto for all these years, and now want the decadent West to feel their pain. More plausible.

 - They're alienated youths with psychotic tendencies, and are holding a grudge again "normal" society.  No political motive. Essentially, Borat going all Columbine. Definitely plausible, given that dude's pathetic Facebook post.


My guess is they're the kind of lone wolf operatives Al-Qaeda has been encouraging. I.e., whether or not they have any direct tie to Al-Qaeda, or any other Islamic terrorist organization, they're sympathetic to them. They heard a broadcast or read a pamphlet, and decided to act independently.

On Fox, flag doesn't look burned to me, different house?

Peki: Over scanner: Guy is calling for last reported contact with the subject.

I'm guessing they have no idea where this guy is? Or is TV showing something different?

/and don't quote CNN, please. . .


Yeh, they just named 3 or 4 houses where he might be.

Against a 19 -year old douchebag terrorist? Send Chief Adams. He'll get the job done while being dead drunk the entire time.

DarnoKonrad: DamnYankees: It's worth mentioning that this bombing makes no sense in terms of Chyechnian independence. How the fark does that cause improve due to this?

Any motive right now is 100% guessing.


Just seeing how young they were yesterday, I wondered if it wasn't just purely for the ol' ultra violence -- you know, just plain psychopathy. You hear about teenagers murdering people for fun on occasion.  Who knows until they capture this kid tho.


That's what I am going for. These were two brothers doing something on their own with no bigger group backing them up. Just a couple of psychopaths whose only agenda was their own.
 
2013-04-19 08:44:23 AM
Shooting right now on CNN.
 
2013-04-19 08:44:30 AM

Bit'O'Gristle: /Wonders what "less lethal" ammo might be for a AR-15 or M-4 or shogun would be.  And why, in this current situation, you would desire that in your weapon in this circumstance. Not like you're expecting officers to fire rubber bullets at a guy firing "lethal" rounds at you.


They want him alive so they can interrogate him.
 
2013-04-19 08:44:38 AM
Man I hope he don't have any hostages.
 
2013-04-19 08:44:48 AM
They just delayed the signal on CNN. Some crap is going down...

That's because America is a firm believer in the mantra "An enemy of our enemy is our friend", especially during the Cold War. Basically back then if you didn't like the Soviets we gave you aid (money, guns, training) regardless if you liked us or not.

Also works for Iran as well, see how well giving aid to Saddam worked out for us.

Oh, oh,sounds like they found him.

Looks like it's not a flag but a decorative pennant of some sort. Good view of it on Fox.

The cameraman on the CNN feed is drunk. That much is certain.

Sorry, but when I heard of all the cops in Watertown, I thought of this...

Seriously, though, my intuitive feeling is that the second suspect won't be alive by evening...

EOD team called for.

Ho man some frantic crap going on.  Can't even get words out right.  Someone found something and they're excited.
 
2013-04-19 08:45:22 AM
This is beginning to look more akin to Sandy Hook and Aurora than politically motivated terrorism, but that won't stop the bigots from demanding we bomb Chechnya. (Maybe Roose Bolton--er, I mean--Putin will oblige us.)

Carn: Um, you are aware of the word terrorism and what it means, right? I think they accomplished precisely what they meant to.


Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as "the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives" (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85).

Mass murder is not necessarily "terrorism." Otherwise, Newtown and Columbine would've been called "terrorism." And they weren't.

lightwell: I could only imagine the horror of the parents when they find out what their children have done. Parents worst nightmare.


For normal parents, I agree.  Lemme speculate for a second based on reports that I've read:

It has been reported that:
1. the brothers have been in the country since age 7 (according to their neighbors)
2. the brothers are 19 and 20 years of age.
3. At least one of the brothers has been attending a university on a scholarship for the past 2 years.
4. Police speculate that due to the expertise the brothers demonstrated during the shootout, the brothers have (para)military training.
5. THEY WERE 19 & 20 YEARS OLD.

Could it be that the parents have something to do with their training?  I.e. sent them somewhere to obtain the skills required to pull this off?

Like I said, I'm just speculating and am not sure if I believe this, but it has yet to be ruled out as a possibility.

I'm sure your responsible attitude will prevail among posters.


That's the problem when you insist on labeling every homicidal maniac a terrorist.  You inevitably start looking for whatever agenda or cause they were trying to advance with their actions, and when you find nothing, you get confused and start saying that things make no sense.

With the information we have, it's best to just say that these guys are murderers.

Cobblestone Flag: what_now: Ok, so Channel 4 has this guy's uncle on the phone, and he said that the older guy is a loser who didn't finish HS and the younger kid had a bright future.

So..older brother has nothing going for him, and convinces little brother- who seems to be going somewhere- that the Great Satan is the reason.

Link please


sorry- it was just the local news channel blathering, and they came up with something good.
 
2013-04-19 08:46:06 AM
So... they got these guys inside of a week. Does that mean they were patsies set up by the US government so they could increase security and take away more rights?

Seriously, where are the derpers with the Real Truth TM

DarnoKonrad: BarkingUnicorn: DarnoKonrad: BarkingUnicorn: This is why I despise empathy.

People who plant bombs to kill others wantonly also lack the quality.

If this is political terrorism and not random craziness, I'll wager empathy plays a large role.  Just not empathy for Bostonians.


Put it this way, empathy is not sympathy.  Being able to put yourself in someone else' shoes does not mean you agree with them.  If you lack empathy you're some kind of psychopath.


If you're unable to keep yourself out of other people's shoes, you have a bigger problem that psychopathy/sociopathy/whateverpathy.
