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.

Not to my knowledge. Traffic was light.

where do you work?

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.

Anonymous just put up a good point on Twitter. Don't post, Twitter or otherwise, names of streets or landmarks regarding police activity/movement as the suspect may have access to social media and could use that information.

Up here in Peabody nothing crazy happening, seems to be pretty localized to the city and immediately surrounding towns.
