I've been listening to the police scanner. In the last half hour the cops have had to tell the media to pull their head out of there ass. The dirtbag in question is posting online that he is going to kill everyone to avenge the cops killing his brother. Anyone the cops run across is getting a shakedown and told to GTFO. They are getting a bus in there to evac residents they know are not part of this. SWAT is tightening the noose. The bomb squad is looking at every tiny thing as a possible explosive.

If you can GTFO the area. Seriously, there are bombs and shiat and there is gonna be some airborne lead real soon. The cops are doing everything they can to escort people out of the area. Take them up on it.

I'm watching local news (Fox 25). The cameras have been off for about half an hour. So we're in audio-only mode, interviewing people connected, and so on. One of the guy's wrestling buddies is on right now. Boston Police have also asked that no one broadcast any police locations or addresses.

TOM KLUDT8:46 AM EDT, FRIDAY APRIL 19, 2013
Police on Friday morning surrounded a home in Watertown, Mass., the same suburban Boston community where authorities engaged in a firefight with 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the two suspects in the deadly marathon bombings. The older Tsarnaev was killed in the firefight, while Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remains at large.

Footage of police surrounding the home is being shown live on Fox News Channel. Anchors on the network described what they believed to be the sounds of explosives and gun fire. It is unclear if police were cornering Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Bomb trucks were seen arriving at the house.

Here in Malden there's barely few cars on the road. I didn't know anything was going on until I had walked to the T station, along with a few other people. Amazingly some of my co-workers did drive in to work. I work at a financial company, it's not like we're essential workers that need to go there. I'm surprised my company didn't just announce the office would be closed, as it's right in Boston.

I've always wondered if it was a franchise or not too, seen that one before on my way to Davis.  As far as I know, Joan is the owner of the one in West Medford and shes never once mentioned the other.  She gets there super early every day to make her muffins fresh.  She is really nice, you should try that shop out.

I'd like to know this too. I've been with the investigation since they first announced the shooting at M.I.T. so I'm not sure if you were trying to catch me up, or if you're saying you recently heard more.

The blasts were around quarter of 2 last night. I haven't heard anything since.


Oh, yeah, that makes sense. That was probably police doing controlled explosion. In an earlier thread I believe we overheard at least 3-4 callouts regarding such throughout Watertown on the scanner.

Also, hello, Boston Farkers. Missed all of you at Fark World Party III: NOLA Strikes Back.


Hey big guy!  Where you been?  Hope all is well.  Don't want to clog the thread.

Magnificent Muffin in West Medford is open in case anyone from the Medford area ever goes there.  Great muffins!

Awesome muffins but those ladies are mean!

You must not be nice to them because they love me

The place on Broadway? Those ladies are SUPER mean. They aren't nice to ANYONE.

no its on 60 in West Medford, directly next to the commuter rail.

holy shiat they franchised?

Ok, the place on Broadway in Teele Sq has been nicknamed "bagel Nazi" because those ladies are super, super angry with life.

I've always wondered if it was a franchise or not too, seen that one before on my way to Davis.  As far as I know, Joan is the owner of the one in West Medford and shes never once mentioned the other.  She gets there super early every day to make her muffins fresh.  She is really nice, you should try that shop out.


Have you ever been to the Gingerbread House in Winchester? Best muffins ever!

We're "sheltering in place" as instructed. When the GF walked the dog this morning she saw 2 MBTA busses full of cops tearing down Columbia and turning to head up L St.
Have heard several sirens but mostly further off.

It has been brought up to me through various outlets that the suspect is in Watertown and not my neighborhood. Not sure if people are trying to be reassuring or think I'm being dramatic but since people are being evacuated in my area I think I have the right to concern.  I'd like to believe that the cops are hot on this guys trail but there's a reason the surrounding towns have a in-shelter going on.  It's possible he's been able to move from Watertown to another neighborhood.  Do not take that lightly my fellow Middlesex county farkers.

Authorities are very aggressive in keeping people away from certain streets. An officer actually raised a shotgun towards my (government plated) vehicle to warn me away on Dorchester St. I hopped back on the pike and got out around 9, and saw at least a dozen marked and unmarked police vehicles flying towards Boston on the pike while I headed back to Worcester.

You should only be afraid of Police Dogs if they are ordered to take you down, or you have explosives or drugs or something.

I would definitely not try to rub their bellies when they are in Business Mode, but Police Dogs are as playful and awesome as any others when off-duty.  I used to have some friends that adopted one that had retired (usually, the family of a Police Officer does this, as I understand it.)  A truly phenomenal dog, let me tell you.

but yeah, that's kinda stupid. It's an hour drive to UMD from Boston

Thats the best thing I've heard all morning. If Drew shows up for something like this, I'm in for a Benjamin.

Olthoi: BloodySaxon: Worcester native here. I went into Boston at 8 this morning. Still plenty of pedestrians on the street, but a huge police presence everywhere. Authorities are very aggressive in keeping people away from certain streets. An officer actually raised a shotgun towards my (government plated) vehicle to warn me away on Dorchester St. I hopped back on the pike and got out around 9, and saw at least a dozen marked and unmarked police vehicles flying towards Boston on the pike while I headed back to Worcester.

If they're resorting to pulling cops from out west the resources in the city now must be insane.


Just hoping this isn't a Die Hard trick, with the real badness going down while the cops are distracted.

Yes, but if he's seriously injured and stressed it may be easier to get him to surrender if they can speak to him in his native language.

This is perhaps one of the wildest national events I've ever witnessed. It's not the largest spectacle, obviously 9/11 still takes the cake on that one, but the sheer level of madness involved here is just mind-boggling.

They currently have a man cuffed on the ground and a perimeter around him because they have legitimate reason to believe he could be wired with a deadman switch on a bomb. This is unreal, Hollywood-level crazy shiat.

In Belmont, was just out on the front deck, and very surreal... Total silence, except for the wind rushing through the trees, no people out, no cars out, no noise, but very beautiful weather too, and the occasional chopper circling overhead..

My friend lives right near where the chase ended, and has SWAT teams parked out front, and they were scrambling through her back yard at one point with weapons at the ready!

 Post apocalyptic surreal feeling at the moment...

Nothing that crazy outside of a square mile or so that (from the sound of it) they are clearing house by house.  There are people driving around and doing things, just a whole lot LESS people driving around doing things, at least outside my place, and I'm about 1/2 a mile away from the area they have locked down tight.  They did cancel my grocery delivery though, those jerks.

I wish people would stop updating with locations of where the police are, or have just been.  In the US for ten years, and ya' don't think he could possibly be a Farker?

Comments like "wow my sister is nextdoor to the house they raided!" is fine, but when you start mentioning cross streets, and/or areas/ parts of town that are "now under lockdown," you have to wonder if the info is being read by the suspect, or perhaps someone in-contact with them.  (or getting relayed  onto FB where it can be seen by others there).

If it's real news, like "holy crap they locked-down a different city" or something, the less target-useful info that get's out, the better.  Kinda like, imagine if your post tips him off and tells him the cops are closer than he thought, and so he decides he can't get away and prepares for a final stand.  Pretty sure no one wants that.

On the scanner it sounds like they're basically still just sweeping streets. Seems pretty calm, considering.

Haven't heard anything else about the old guy with the "device" they took down. And MSNBC was reporting something about having a suspect surrounded, but it doesn't sound like that's actually happening.

There's one in every crowd.

Pretty sure no one wants that.

Pretty sure nobody wants to hear from paranoid security-through-obscurity types that don't think the first/second hand sources (FB, twitter, police scanners, news, etc) are not available to the perp either, but it's not stopping you.

If this scumbag is spending his time trolling fark threads for intel while being pursued by an army and a half of LEOs, he won't be on the run for long.  Unless the BPD officers chasing him are the same ones that that thought an Err lightbrite was a bomb, that is.
