and yet nothing in subby's linked-to article has any of the information that is in subby's headline.

just greenlight everything!


"NIAGARA FALLS, NY - A police source tells 2 On Your Side that New York State Police are searching a vehicle that was pulled over in Niagara Falls.

Police stopped the car at 19th and Elmwood in the Falls.

The vehicle has Massachusetts license plates.

Bomb technicians and a robot are being used to investigate four suspicious backpacks in the vehicle.

The FBI tells 2 On Your Side they are aware of the situation and that their joint-terrorism task force is assisting the NYSP.

2 On Your Side has a crew on the scene and will have more information as it becomes available."

Niagara Falls, NY is a grubby grumpy little town.
Guess they're irritated by Niagara Falls, ON waving its bedazzled dick in their faces all the time.

Given that millions of people have been harassed for over a decade for happening to share a religion (or skin tone, or just speak with a foreign accent) in a previous attack, it seems likely to be fairly bad.

The car was occupied by two brothers from Turkey with what appears to be proper identification from Massachusetts, police said.

The brothers explained that they were tourists who had come to view the falls.

But given the developing situation in the Boston area, authorities were taking no chances and called the state police, U.S. Border Patrol agents and members of the Western New York Joint Task Force.

At this time, it appears the brothers' story is checking out and will not result in police action.

It will not result in police action, however the police have begun to prepare next year's budget with a "payments to the ACLU" line item.

/actually no matter how dickish our cops were, they were still less dickish than the Turkish police are, so the tourists might just let it ride

SlothB77: rumors were four


What now? I don't quite understand...

(4)

Oh, thank god you did that. I wish everyone wrote like they were perpetually writing a legal contract, I just don't understand numbers when they are spelled out. You make things so easy!

Ultrafark: the two Boston suspects aren't even from Russia, they're from Kyrgyzstan.

So arresting "Russians" who are actually from Turkey makes oh so much sense.

Those of us who were born/raised in Niagara Falls are trying to figure out where Elmwood is in the city.

How can you not know where Elmwood is, that's the street Viola's sub shop is on, you can even see it in the photo in the linked story (the brick building).

As far as the details, or lack thereof, I've looked at this story several times since it was Boobiesed to WGRZ's website at 9:31am.  The article has been changed significantly, without any kind of notification.  The current story is much different from what it said when the link was submitted to Fark.
