He's got a "full pack."

Soon he'll have full pants as well.

If nothing else, we have learned that American are a lot more comfortable with troops and armored vehicles in the streets than we would have thought.

Just to show that the insanity isn't relegated to just Massachusetts/Connecticut, here's something from the NYPD scanner:

NY Scanner @NYScanner 39s

Brooklyn: NYPD ESU being requested to the Williamsburg bridge for a suspicious package Bomb squad notified.

A possible bomb on the Williamsburg Bridge. THAT'LL get the heat off this yahoo.

Nabb1: pedobearapproved: Anderson Cooper just asked if the guy smoked or drank in highschool...because those are obviously what caused this.

More likely because alcohol and tobacco consumption are forbidden in Islam, and if he is some sort of Muslim extremist, then drinking and smoking a few years ago would indicate that fundamentalism is a recent thing for him.


One of his "friends" was interviewed early this morning and spoke about how "normal" he was and included "he smoked a little weed now and then...." so probably just verifying previous info.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: Scannner: If anyone tries to get in that car, FBI says arrest them.


They didn't say arrest.  They said take down.

So it's 2013 and law enforcement can't figure out how not to have all their communications intercepted by scanners and posted online. I assume that a 19 year old suspect knows how to use the internet.

White Chechen Muslims?! Why can't they be brown Muslims or white Christians so we can easily & lazily stigmatize an entire group?

Ruslan Tsarni, don't be ashamed. Your pride in America and Chechnya is remarkable. Your nephews may be losers, but you are not.

All I know is that my friend in Watertown, MA broke her kneecap yesterday and got out of the ER just in time to be ordered into lockdown.  She couldn't even fill her pain meds prescription first.  The pain's so bad she actually did a couple of shots of Jameson earlier and she hates hard liquor with a passion.  That's just one person.  How many are going without food or medication or medical assistance because two asshats decided to try to blow up the Boston Marathon and then shoot an MIT cop?  And if this guy somehow manages to get away the cops, like Lucy, are going to have a lotta 'splaining to do.

JusticeandIndependence: Amos Quito: Didn't read thread yet.

Guessing he's either holed up somewhere, or holed up and bleeding out somewhere.

Any news on the vehicle he was last seen driving

I believe it's been found.  Without him.  There have been two more vehicles sought out and found as well.



THANK YOU!

brapbrapbrap: Younger brother should say that it was older brother who planted the bombs and he knew nothing about it until afterwards. Then older brother held him hostage and forced him at gunpoint to throw explosives etc. He ran from the police because he was scared about being set up for something he didn't do.


Except that they got witnesses seeing both of them shoot and kill the first cop in cold blood

It was VINCE all along!

Dizzzammmmn....boy got a hold of some tig-ole-bittys.

/I'd think twice about going on a murder/bombing spree if I could motorboat those things.

LOL, I couldn't help but noticing that as well. It's like a huge focal point in the image.

Enormous breasts are a focal point of Fark in general.


I'll admit, I didn't even notice the suspect's face until much later.
 
2013-04-19 03:02:11 PM  
In the grand scheme of things.. Is this the biggest manhunt we've had on U.S. soil in terms of the sheer amount of manpower, agencies, and vehicles involved? I can't recall anything this massive before..

Russ1642: So it's 2013 and law enforcement can't figure out how not to have all their communications intercepted by scanners and posted online. I assume that a 19 year old suspect knows how to use the internet.


They're communicating sensitive information via phone or encrypted channels. The radio that can be scanned is non-critical communications.

StandsWithAFist: YoungSwedishBlonde: So someone needs to explain this to me.

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

I'm still wondering why those two even bothered to stay in Boston. Clearly these two did NOT think their cunning plan all the way through.


I dunno - they have forever changed the way marathons will be organized - ruining what was a very community type sporting event. They have caused an entire city to be on lock down. Worse - they now embody the very lyrics of a song very much associated with Boston - everybody knows their names.

Not sure how they could have been more successful (beyond having a larger death toll).

To top it off, suicide by cop is likely the plan - after all the dead guy had a bomb vest on - likely he was intending to detonate close to the cop cordon.

Pretty damn cunning if you ask me. Reprehensible, but cunning nevertheless.
 
2013-04-19 03:02:21 PM  

fireclown: A whole lotta people better be really damn sure those are the right two guys.


I'd say the details seem to add up:

* gun battle with police
* improvised explosives thrown at police
* improvised explosive strapped to the body of Suspect #1
 
2013-04-19 03:02:25 PM  
Can someone update me please? Do they know for a fact where this guy is? Holed up in a house? Or driving somewhere unknown? I'm confused.

fireclown: A whole lotta people better be really damn sure those are the right two guys.


Unless there"s more than one group of people in Boston with bombs they're the right guys. They were tossing bombs and shooting at cops for a while last night. Not to mention robbing a 7/11, killing an MIT cop, highjacking a car and taking a hostage. Almost certainly it's the Marathon Bombers.
 
2013-04-19 03:02:39 PM  

nickerj1: They've got a surveillance on a vehicle now, and the FBI authorized lethal force to stop the vehicle.  Expecting a rush on the vehicle by parties from a house.  Setting up a perimeter on the target house.


A second vehicle has arrived and occupants spotted a surveillance team.  Raid jackets are on.

-Seemed to be confusion, it was an FBI team also responding to target location, not additional subject vehicle.
 
2013-04-19 03:02:40 PM  
This has probably been stated, but when do officials throw their hands up in the air and say "We can't find him. Everyone can go about their business until he's spotted again."

tenpoundsofcheese: Mikey1969: Frank N Stein: Right wing terrorists Fark said.

AlQuaeda Fark said.

See? Two can play at that game.

"Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the first suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing case who was killed by police in an overnight shootout, posted a video to his YouTube account which outlined an extremist religious prophecy associated with Al Qaeda. According to a report in Mother Jones Tsarnaev, 26, posted a video to his account by Austrian extremist Muslim Imam Feiz Mohammad discussing the battle foretold in Islamic religious philosophy that would bring about the apocalypse. "


Yeah, apparently you forgot to cut and paste the part where was actually a PART of AlQuaeda, as I was telling your alt.

atomicmask:
Perhaps its time to admit that a certain culture and religion has a problem, and is not capable of coexisting with western civilization?

Statistically speaking, since this ordeal began, there's been several hundred murders carried out by Christians in the United States.

Western civilization has a hard time coexisting with itself most of the time.

And, apparently, looking for officers willing to put in overtime.
