I'm going to call bullshiat on that.

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

Check out the post date.

waffle299: I do have a question. Why were these two still in Boston this many days later? I mean, it was pretty obvious by Tuesday that pictures would be found and they'd be identified. Why hang around? They had a car. By this time, had they left on Monday, they could have been so far away as to disappear. Why hang around?

Then again, given the individuals involved, I suppose logic and long term planning are not their strong suits.


That and the ham-handed 7-11 robbery are what makes me thing this was not some wider scheme, well-funded operation. Just a disenfranchised depressed bonehead become ideologue and his co-opted little brother.

Danger Avoid Death: vento: TheManofPA: 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.

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

I thought it was just the universe's way of telling me to finally get some sleep.


Same here.

supershaft: 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.


Stop.
 Chechens belong to the Caucasoid type, exhibiting traits typical of European and Caucasian peoples. The majority of Chechens are dark-haired (medium to dark brown or black), but there are Chechens with blonde or even red hair, while eye color ranges from blue to brown and skin tone is typically rather pale and light (though there are some Chechens with olive complexions). ...The Chechens are one of the Vainakh peoples, who have lived in the highands of the North Caucasus region since prehistory


You are leaving out he part where they were taken over by arabs, then mongols, that typically results in the population getting bred with arab or mongol blood. Hence why they look like arabs and have arab features.


Keep moving that goal post.

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

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.


About 9 hours to Cleveland on I-90, driving the speed limit.

WalkingCarpet: Same confusion here. What did every single LEO stay behind to tend to the dead guy and no one went after the other guy? It makes no sense to me. These aren't some guys who knocked over a liquor store and had one cop car following them that he ditched.


Remember naked guy?  They had him at gunpoint for a long time, and originally reported over the radio he was the second suspect.  It must've been 20 min or more after reporting they had the suspect at gunpoint before they came on the radio and asked for someone to come verify he was the right guy.

Publikwerks: 95 Honda Oddessy? WHat's he doing, starting a family of four?


He wants to realize his dream of becoming a soccer mom.  That's what is driving his rage - his inability to become a soccer mom in a society that doesn't approve of him becoming a soccer mom.

Why do you keep on posting that?

styckx: Grobbley: [i.imgur.com image 850x198]

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.

And every single time, people get mad.  If it were just "stupid bullshiat" why not simply dismiss it as such and move on?  Do you know how much "stupid bullshiat" gets posted and reposted on FARK every single day?  Generally people don't get so pissed off about it.  The emotional responses to this "stupid bullshiat" would indicate to me that they feel their view of reality is threatened by it.  People don't want to face the potential of their reality being wrong, so anything that conflicts with their reality is immediately a threat to be attacked or suppressed, regardless of how absurd it is.

/I don't personally believe any of the shiat from the image, but I do find the responses to be humorous and illuminating


Ah, the ol "pretending to be retarded for the lels." Good stuff
 
2013-04-19 02:48:28 PM  
I hope they didn't try to establish a perimeter.  On 24, the bad guy ALWAYS escaped after they'd established a perimeter.

/ Maybe they should try establishing a diameter, or a hypotenuse or sumptin.

vygramul: brapbrapbrap: Tman144: How the fark did this guy get away? They had him. Do they not have helicopters in MA?

This. I haven't received an answer to this yet. How did the farker get away from the incident where his brother was shot? Anyone?

I don't know how the air presence lost him, but apparently he was playing spy hunter and flinging bombs and grenades out the window and when the police slowed to avoid them, he got out of sight, stopped, and bolted from the vehicle.


Escaped on foot and 12 hours later he still hasn't been caught...That is crazy, the dude has done well to last this long, I'll give him that.
 
2013-04-19 02:48:45 PM  
The uncle says they should turn themselves in and "ask for forgiveness." Heh. Yeah, forgiveness. That's what you should expect.

The ideal outcome is that they turn themselves in, but there is zero motivation for him to do so. No matter what he does he's going away forever.

Coastalgrl: 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.


And if crowds inadvertently assisted his getaway, or if he killed a lot more people, they'd be screaming "Why didn't the governor and police tell everyone to stay home?"

It's not martial law. You're not going to be brought before a military tribunal for going outside.

An interview I heard on NPR (don't remember who it was) this morning indicated that he drove over his brother and through a police blockade. It sounded like helicopters were not on the scene yet.

2013-04-19 02:49:53 PM  

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.

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.


In the United States, the military is prohibited by law from being used as law enforcement.   And despite how farked up things are in Boston right now, most Americans want it that way.

That CAN'T be real. It's a BMW - where would he have gotten the money for that? I'd also assume that car would have been keyed to shiat if that were real just by normal bystanders who read that.

I know if that happened in NYC it would have anyway.
