vygramul: OregonVet: I would like the hair splitters for their insight as to the "this isn't marshal law!" reasoning.

How is that hair-splitting? Martial law is something quite explicit. Heck, I don't see many farkers calling mandatory evacuations before a hurricane martial law, but this, which is less intrusive and has fewer penalties for disobeying is?


See the FLQ crisis in Quebec in 1970 for an example of what martial law can look like.  Holding people in jail without charges is a good litmus test.

Ned Stark: ourbigdumbmouth: In before the white person deniers show up.

Heh. A graph of peoples political alignment compared with whether or not they consider chechens white could be fascinating.

I would expect sort of a bell curve.

Just heard their aunt on the radio (she's from Canada, so you don't know her) and she sounds like she is in serious denial, unlike the uncle who threw their asses under the bus earlier.

Chechens are not white. The first use of the word Chechen comes from arabic to describe the village of Chechen-al. They are a mixture of russian and arab. They are also muslim.


Ready to apologize ultra libs? Remember how you said these where two white frat boys? Remember how you said I was crazy because I said they had arab features?

Damn it must suck to be so god damn wrong all the time. But fark should be used to that.

Tom_Slick: It came out on Reddit posted by "somebody who works downtown" and TMZ confirmed it is real.  So take that as you will.


Oddly enough, an endorsement from TMZ carries more weight than one from CNN from my perspective.

I think Fareed Zakharia needs to find a new network. He's too smart for those people.

Heh. Apparently it means I'm a dumbass who should just try reloading the page before assuming stupid stuff.

The person running the channel rebooted her computer.  It did go down for about 2 minutes.


Off topic kinda - Anyone know what TYPE of scanner they're using? One that can track the newer SSB multi channel cop stuff that switches frequencies all the time?

Because fark.


Yeah, that is an awful picture.  Was telling my wife that I had seen that earlier this morning.  Depressing image.

I don't understand how the younger brother managed to escape from the shootout?

Stop posting this none sense.

People have a right to know.  Why do you hate the free spread of information so much?  Take it or leave it, but why bash it?  Why are you so threatened by it?


Nobody is "threatened" buyy it, they're just tired of this stupid bullshiat. None of it has ever been true, yet simpletons continue to post and repost it every chance they get.

I haven't read every post so I'm sure my sentiments have been repeated.

I can understand people fearing tyranny and martial law. I would be pretty freaked out if I was there too. But instead of viewing the entire city shut down and how easy it is to shut a city down. I see it as a team effort by the entire city of Boston to aid the efforts of the responders trying to apprehend this person. Stay off the streets, out of the way. Keeps the public out of harms way and makes the job of the responders easier.

Its my half way bid to try to think positively.

My thoughts are with Boston today. This entire incident has struck a nerve in me since this was a home of mine. Seeing images of a place I have fond memories of is really disturbing.

Not much work will be done today.

Man, I'm still exhausted from the 5 straight hours last night...it's also odd to see FWC in this context just like before...especially the hardcore belt before people knew wha was happening.

If you are new to the thread while their is downtime go back and read the first greenlit one and then the early red one; it was just surreal as everything unfolded.
 
2013-04-19 02:35:34 PM  
So, they were set up? Not only does the pair have enough firepower to rival a warzone firefight against innumerable LEOs, but the younger keeps running/hiding?

Methinks they doth protest too much.

Walker: 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.


Or maybe a cocaine slurpee.

I can't tell what make that scanner is, but Radio Shack still sells scanners and the more expensive models can follow trunk scanning rather nicely.

Man this is just riveting. I can't listen to the scanner on this work computer (soundcard blown). But I will be following the thread. shiat all I do is run a comic book store. I got times on my hands

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.


Welcome to my favorites.

If you listen the the police chatter it becomes quickly apparent they actually don't have any idea where he is right now... Ohio sounds as good as anywhere else.

Yeah I don't think a 40 year old example that happened in another country is irrelevant at all.

Tatsuma: 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'


If you want to fark with the media and get them to leave you alone for a few minutes, stop partway through and say, "BABABOOEY! BABABOOEY! HOWARD STERN ROCKS! AAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

They'll cut you off and pack up while they try to figure out how they got the wrong guy.
