moistD: WTF Indeed: what_now: I'll bet any amount of money that Sligo is open.

Of course, there is never a day someone isn't in need of a cheap beer.

cash only cheap beer.

But is Red Bones open?


Oh dear god I could go for some Red Bones right now.  I only have PB&J for lunch.

/I do have a soda on the side, however.

There is someone on the ground with guns on him..unclear if suspect.

If you have frequented Sligo's, we may have been in the same room. I lived in Medford and good friends living in Davis Square. I think I had Anna's everyday for two months when they moved in.

They locked the camera down and took off. So it's a live shot with no actual reporters near

Whoa... Fark took a shiat there for a few minutes. Must be getting hammered.

Person on the ground may have a deadman switch, they're waiting for a vehicle to block any potential blast.
 
2013-04-19 11:05:42 AM  
Yeah, but they also said that it was NOT the person they have been looking for.  So this might be some shmuck in a think geek tshirt carrying an ipod

Exclusive update: I was able to take the dog out and get back inside before the police could yell at me. Both dog and those of us who would have to mop up a mess are relieved.

Okay, it wasn't you channel 5 was referring to when they said a dog walker got yelled back into his house.

Or an old guy with some sort of legit medical device.

Personally, I'll put $5 on "some random moron who thinks he's being funny".

No that must have been a report of a second dog walker. I repeat we have reports of a second dog walker.

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.

If someone made a movie about this before it happened, everyone would think it was just over-the-top Hollywood dreck.  Now, whenever Affleck or Damon make the movie, and you know they will, it's going to be critically acclaimed.

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...

Just thinking about this, and i would love some feedback from those farkers in boston, How would DD employees get to work? I assume ANYONE outside is being searched and ordered back indoors. Does a DD uniform get you a special police escort to work?

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.
