I joined fark last night at the beginning of all of this stuff - fell asleep with 18 minutes left before I could make my Boobies (you have to wait 6 hours to initially post after signup). I wanted in on that epic original thread. Now there are 16 of them, wow. (Fark + Scanner) > ((CNBC + MSNBC + FOX + CNN)*(Alex Jones))

I need pointers from this kid on how to evade all those GTA cops and SWAT teams when I have a Six Star Wanted level.

I take it she is on CNN or something?  All I have is the scanner for now.


Fox had a replay followed by the stupidest analysis of Chechen politics I've ever heard.

seventypercent: What they should do is publicly announce that the suspect has escaped and that there's nothing more to be done, and call off the search. Then the mayor should go on TV and announce that there will be a Mega Wrestling Contest tonight downtown, and that first prize is an all-expenses-paid trip to Chechnya. Then when this guy shows up to wrestle in it (the contest is actually just a fake) they can have Rick Moranis jump out in front of him in the Dark Helmet costume and say "Fooled you!" Then they can cuff him and stuff him, and take any money that he has in his wallet and put it towards a "Dynasty" reunion show hosted by Joan Collins.


Sounds like Adam Carolla's "Free Cockfight for Raiders' Fans" plan.

Just on Faux (they have actually been somewhat informative today, clearly playing up the Al Qaeda angle, but...)

It'll be on youtube any moment. Remixs will be available by nightfall. It was epic.

Dr.Knockboots: DubyaHater: Just turned on the police scanner.  Boston accents are the worst.

Ahem..
we speak correctly.


Remembah.. the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth (my home town), we stahted it all. We speak correctly, everyone else messed up the language as we spread across the US.

GO SOX!


Probably irrelevant, and insensitive, but my Knicks don't have a chance against the "Boston Strong" Celtics and all the karma and love the rest of the country is sending them. The one time in like 20 years we have a contender, dammit. Might as well send them Chuck Pagano.

brapbrapbrap: Going over old ground here I'm sure but...12 hours ago the police had tracked down both suspects, killed one and yet the 19 year old got away and has evaded capture since...erm, how? How did he get away from the incident where his brother was killed in the first place?

12 hours on and the dude is officially taking the piss now. Can they not send the army in to sort it out? Navy SEALS? You can borrow some of our SAS guys if you want, they'd have the coont wrapped up for you within the hour. It's getting stupid now, they should have got him 12 hours ago.


Thought they would have both died like Bonnie & Clyde.

It seems they prefer to comb the city instead.

His communications were a lot more efficient than theirs.  i.e.  he had none, they had to coordinate among a lot of people from multiple organizations with different internal protocols.  It's a wonder they're not still back at the mall showing each other PowerPoints.  (semi-serious there)
 
2013-04-19 02:30:46 PM  

StandsWithAFist: This guy has to be running out of energy by now (adrenaline only goes so far). So unless he has associates who will hide him/let him crash at their place, I can easily see him farking up sometime soonish...


He went to 7-11, so maybe he stole a case of energy drinks.
 
2013-04-19 02:30:46 PM  

what_now: Ok, so absolutely nothing has changed since my Dad called, frantically, and woke me up at 7am.

Black Hat- 26 year old Tamerlan Tsarnaev is dead.
White hat-  19 year old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev is at large.

He may be in Watertown, he may not. He may be wounded, he may not.

this is literally the only confirmed information.

And my trip to NY has been postponed, which is annoying but not the worth thing.


There has been some developments regarding possible motivations.

No.  Refresh your page, scanner still up.

vygramul: mootmah: grimlock1972: Anyone been awake for the entire manhunt?

All of the cops.

Which makes the lack of bullet-riddled civilian vehicles that much more commendable.


That's because this happened in Boston and not LA.

Is that the second location?  There are no flags in that picture.


I believe I heard that suspect 2 was responsible for the second bomb site.

Apparently the father is also saying that they were set up and that they did not do this

I mean, I can understand relatives in denial but shut the fark up and don't vomit all over the airwaves, just say 'No comment'

Car_Ramrod: eddievercetti: robsul82: CNN just announced the Honda thing.

Knowing CNN, they reported it as a Toyota.

Knowing the NYPost, they'll report it as Guile.


Knowing any of the mass media outlets, they'll report it as a 13 foot brown rowboat. "Tammy, what can you tell us about rowboats?"

We're very particular about letting federal military carry out our law enforcement



Yeah, we only use them in major cities following a riot by poor brown people.

No.  I think 9/11 still has the trophy.

/Or Lilo's drunken antics, if you're more into marathon coverage than 100m dash.

Nerdy girls is sti the all time winner for posts in thread, I believe, but it's not a fair fight, what with the mods shutting down threads and opening new ones.

I wonder what the accumulated total for this event has been since the whole chase started this morning?

/too lazy to check

Also, the Iran threads had to have a fairly epic number of posts when combined.


My count so far:  ~10,695

now where's the hell you guys getting all these updates i can't find?

Yeah, especially the video link of the guys' aunt doing her standup routine?

CNN has played both the uncle and aunt. I just turn off the sound when anybody else is on.


I'm catching the Uncle's interview, the guy sure doesn't seem to tolerate moron reporters very well... As for CNN, still looking for that video, their website is an overloaded mess of bullshiat, but I got to see the nifty hologram technology for the first time ona video about the fertilizer plant explosion, so there's that...
