I'm going to call bullshiat on that.

The guy posted information that everyone either has currently or is common speculation.

Why did you post a picture with a young Paul McCartney and massive boobs?


Massive boobs need no explanation. Or apology.

The Life Of Brian: d23: Ctrl-Alt-Del: Ctrl-Alt-Del: scanner stream just died.

Does this mean it's going down right now?

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?


The live picture of it is kind of fuzzy. I can't make out the brand.

Bullshiat conspiracy theory that has no link to reality

shiat do they think he's outside of the State by now??


At this point, that could be just the billboard operator being a "Patriotic American" and doing it themselves.  Unless the FBI has sent that slide out to all of these "digital billboard" makers nationwide and asked them to run it.

Is it dusty in here?

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?


While the cops where chasing him, he littered ied's everywhere, forcing them to pull back.  being it dark as shiat, I don't think they knew exactly where he went after that.  Dude does have some skill to evade swat though.

Could be.. But he's nowhere near Ohio, that's for sure.. It's an 8-9 hour drive from Cleveland to Philly so I can't imagine the drive from Boston to Anywhere in Ohio.

Surprising number of people here don't seem to know what "martial law" is (or how to spell it for that matter).
 
2013-04-19 02:37:21 PM
I think the police should approach the door to the house they eventually find him in, knock on it and when asked "Who is it?" Should immediately respond "Candy Gram."

Get's them every time.
 
2013-04-19 02:37:21 PM
Sort through the TMZ "Death Photo Surfaces" thread comments for a link to the image of the body of the one that got killed already.  ***Warning... farking gruesome as hell***

I'm not going to post the link, you'll have to make the effort to get it yourself./not gruesome enough

d23: 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.


Cool I'll have to look.. I used to have a very expensive one..Then here in Ontario, Canada a bunch of years ago they went to that damn trunk switching and made my scanner basically useless!

/used to enjoy listening and this night has brought all that back!

atomicmask: 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.


According to official US goverment standards both Arabs and Slavs are white.

So they were at least technically correct. (Still the best kind)
 
2013-04-19 02:37:31 PM
Has anyone considered the cops may be fairly certain about where he is but for reasons they choose not to share they're not rushing in?

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?

Information. Riiiight, cuz that's what you have been posting all night and day.

From the old thread:

luxup:
No, I just find the irony in railing against the Government by criticizing how they go after a pretty dangerous guy.  It's not like he robbed a bank now.
I just wonder if you stand up for everyone's rights all the time, or just the when it lets you criticize those who help ensure your freedom to speak out.  I mean if there isn't even 1 exception in your mind and if this ain't it then in my book, you are a little fanatical.
Maybe go find some medical you know what, have a beer (if your not an alcoholic) and chill out.  Instead of biatching about big brother, show some support for the families who are, I am sure, thrilled at the police response.
Basically, have a heart man.


You are off your meds dude, you should re-read what I posted because I did none of the things you accuse me of in this post.

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.


Agreed.  It was a very intense few hours - right up until Fark got Farked.

mrshowrules: 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.


Possible, yes. I'm talking about confirmed info, of which there is nothing new.

mrshowrules: 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.


And the removal of local police authority, which isn't happening here at all.
 
2013-04-19 02:38:41 PM

With the entirety of the USA looking for you having bombed the Boston Marathon, why would you go knock off a 7/11?

Grand_Moff_Joseph: Witchydiva: Elegy: Flab: vygramul: Has Fark set a record for subject-coverage yet with this?

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


Only half way to nerdy girls, even. Unless this goes on for another -2 hours, it ain't happenin.
