...as I was just mentioning when the last thread got kiboshed, considering the media's batting average this week I'm hardly surprised they'd cite it as they did. And, if it's the AG's spouting that crap, I'm genuinely disappointed -- but hardly surprised -- in them they'd continue this Bush-era bullshiat.

The kid is a naturalized citizen. He has rights, deserves his day in court and so does Boston and the rest of the country. We're not frickin' Syria.

After the Madrid bombings in Spain, they caught the criminals gave them an open trial in a real court of law and found them guilty.

After the London bombings, they caught the criminals, gave them a public trial in a real court of law and found them guilty.

After the Mumbai bombings in India, they caught the criminals, gave them a public trial in a real court of law and found them guilty.

How about we not be a bunch of pussies this time, America?

So are you suggesting a stoning in front of the Old State House?

-----------------

I suggesting we turn him over to Putin's goons.  I'd pay to see the look on his face as he's dragged on to the Aeroflot plane.  Bye-bye, and don't forget to write.

Considering the number of American citizens' lives he has affected there are probably a whole bunch of folks who would like to see him face justice here in the good ol' US of A.  I'm glad they got him alive and I hope he spills his guts about who, what, where, why, and when before he gets convicted and sentenced.  If a federal jury sentences him to death and he sits on death row in solitary confinement with no privileges for 20+ years before his appeals are exhausted, so much the better.

Let him lose in federal PMTIA prison for a year or two first, on a deal with the inmates that no one who makes him his biatch kills him.

As a I said upthread a bit, Jeffrey Dahmer didn't die of old age in prison with his life sentence.


Make sure to put him in a prison with a high percentage of Bostonites. I am sure with his boyish good looks, as long as the police didn't break his face, he will be the woman of a few men's dreams. This is why the death penalty should not be pursued in cases like this - too humane.

Dahmer was killed because he refused solitary confinement.  It's pretty hard to be killed in prison when you never interact with other prisoners.


Solitary confinement for the rest of your life, is worse than death.

Last night I got my drunk on like nobody's biz and then stumbled back to the boat I've been crashing in. I'm passed out when this dude climbs in. I greet him and tell him there's plenty of room and I go back to fondling myself to sleep.

Next thing I know, this loud boom wakes me up and this dude, who I then notice is covered in blood, starts shooting his gun out of the boat.

I'm like, "What's with all the gun? You've changed, man. You've changed."

He rolls his eyes. I thought he was chastising me but it turns out he was passing out from blood loss.

So these guys are outside shouting for us to give up, surrender on our terms.

Well, my terms, since I'm Tom Wopat, means, hey, I've got a warm body here and two cold fists.

So what do I do? I fist the guy for an hour til this police robot comes up. Then I pretended to go back to sleep. The cops took the guy away. My fists are about to take a long nap.

Cuz I'm Tom Wopat, fisting my way across America.

Gyrfalcon: My boss had an interesting take on this. He wondered this morning if the younger brother (the one who's alive) might have WANTED to get caught. Walking around in the open on Monday, with his hat on backward--he had to know everyone would have a good view of him, and his picture was being taken from every possible angle. It could have been an unconscious desire to get caught.


Yeah, I too wondered about this while watching the video and photos of the two. They took no real disguising measures. It's almost like they expected to get out of town and country safely. Is there any truth to reports that they had airline tickets to Russia for the next day?

rka: DamnYankees: To repeat,  Obama saying terrorists failed because Boston refused to be intimidated and we refused to be terrorized.

Give me a farking break. We cowered, just like we do at the mere thought of all terrorism. 2 kids set of a couple bombs and we competely shut down a major city, divert the national attention, deploy insane amounts of resources and top it all off by not Mirandizing the guy.

I'm honestly sickened right now and the 'celebrating' all this crap.

I wish I had more confidence, but we're knowingly letting innocent people starve to death in Gitmo and we not only don't help them, but a majority of AMericans probably are happy to see them die even though the US government has officially proclaimed them innocent.

Label someone a terrorist in this country and I have zero confidence in our rule of law.

You keep repeating that he wasn't Mirandized. And you know this how? They had a microphone on every cop in the area? Because Wolf Blitzer reported it?

Until the Chief of Police stands up in a public forum and repeatedly answers questions with "no we did not mirandize him" then frankly I wouldn't believe it. And even if they didn't maybe the suspect was in no condition to answer. There could be a whole host of rational, legal, by-the-book reasons, none of which any moron reporter or half-wit Farker could ever tell you.

This whole episode is one big lesson in "don't trust breaking news or the first thing out of a reporters mouth, or even the initial story from the cops".


Also, Mirandizing may not stick, since an injured and drugged suspect may not be able to give informed consent.

Fissile: According to recent reports, the older brother was a student who was married to an American woman, and they have a child.


...though yeah, the older brother having a wife and kid would make you think, maybe he found peace already finally. But... maybe not. Can't deny I'm curious to see what the younger brother is gonna say about how older brother approached him.

You cited the one example of a mass murderer that actually got it in prison.  Kaczinski, Manson, Kuklinski, et al all seem to be doing just fine behind bars.

Doing fine?  I guess that depends on your definition of fine.  Manson is just plain crazy so maybe he's happy but ask the whole "et al" how they feel about life in prison.  Heck, Kaczinski is a few sandwiches short of picnic too.  What's really the difference between a life sentence or death sentence as long as they are removed from the gene pool?
 
2013-04-19 11:53:46 PM

dletter: On the other hand, it was only because the kid got injured in the firefight that he probably even seeked the boat.  If he wasn't very injured, I think he just tries to sneak out of town somehow.  Or, he is more aware and pops the boat owner when he peeks in, and finds a new hiding spot.  Police had no idea how injured he was.


The other thing I find myself wondering, is that without the lock down, the guy walks out at 10 am for a smoke and encounters this kid before blood loss has farked the kid up.  Suddenly we have a hostage situation or something.  A big part of the lock down's success seems to center around preventing public interaction with the suspect until he was weakened.  Perhaps if not for all the police helicopters and door to door stuff, the kid decides to enter a house, try for hostages, raid medicine cabinets etc.  All pure conjecture of course, but I do feel the lock down and such did an excellent job of putting a wounded guy until additional stress and preventing him from recovering mentally while his physical state worsened.

somedude210: If I may put out a possible theory to motive, I don't think White hat's heart was really in this. This seemed to be all his brother's plan. Look at how they dressed on monday, Black Hat, while suspicious, was almost impossible to get an ID on. White hat? He didn't try to hide himself at all. Friends and schoolmates of White hat all say he was a great kid and I have to say, I saw his twitter feed and russian facebook page and I really didn't see anything outright damning on there. The only thing political I saw was video put out by Syrian rebels saying that the secular Assad was attacking them because of faith. Nothing else he posted was religious in nature.

His brother had motive to do something rash. He wasn't liked in America (or at least had no friends), he couldn't understand Americans, he had dislike for our ways of money, sex and material possessions (his brother however, said his goal was to have a career and money), and he was snubbed a chance to box in the Olympics for the US.

That snubbing probably is what set him off. We've all talked about symbolism of this attack, why someone would hit a marathon of all things. The bombs were placed at the finish line, of an event that takes a great deal of perseverance, strength and endurance to accomplish. It is by no means an easy task. When you cross that finish line, you do something truly noteworthy. So why not destroy those dreams like his dreams were destroyed?

From there, he convinces his little brother (who probably looked up to him) about how the US, their adoptive country of which they held no ill will towards, snubbed this three time golden glove winner's chance for an Olympic gold and to prove his dedication to his country and/or homeland (he had hoped to play for either the US or Chechnya).

Black hat takes them on a chase, and massive gun battle, of which he goes down. Now White Hat is scared and lost. His only motivation for doing this is dead, he has no direction, he's probably injured, covered in t ..
It's  America's fault.

All right, I'll apologize.  I jumped the gun, and pegged the bomber as a State of Franklin neo-separatist.  I admit, it was bigoted and illogical to paint everyone living in the area south of the Cumberland Gap as radical militants who wanted nothing more than to divest themselves from North Carolina and Tennessee.  I'm sure many people living in the mountains are hard-working folk who just want micro-regional representation.  I will endeavor from this day forth to work towards improving attitudes in society towards Franklin-Americans.

If you ignored those people, the politics tab would probably be a silent ghostown for you.   They are there in the archives for anyone to see forever.  No need to repeat the idiocy of a bunch of bigots.  Also I don't see how being "right" about his skin color makes theobsession with skin color any less shameful.

GAT_00: theknuckler_33: I can NOT believe you are forcing me to agree with goofysavior. Dude... This was handled just about as well as could have possibly been expected. Seriously, what exactly was badly handled?

First, a random person was held on the ground for 15 minutes, allowing this guy to escape in the first place because they let their net collapse.  Then, after running in circles all night, they lost him, so they decided to more or less declare martial law in Boston.  Then, they proceeded to execute warrantless searches of Watertown, which completely failed to find the guy that was 5 miles away from where he was lost and hiding in a boat the entire time, and was found by said boat's owner.  Not one single thing the police did from the time he went to ground until the time he was found by the boat's owner was worth anything.

The only positive in all of this is the BPD didn't kill any random people.


Now I can say this without a problem:  both sides of the political aisle on Fark should STFU for a while, 'kay?  The farker got caught, the FBI and the BPD will (eventually) read him his rights.  Let's all sit the hell back, STFU, let the chips fall where they may, THEN we can start defending our political position and how this attack changes things.

I wanna hear the whole story on this guy AND his dead brother before we all pass judgment on this; and I say this as someone who'd love see the GOP go up flames as quickly as possible due to their innate political stupidity.

Weird. Yesterday when we didn't know anything and there was  speculation it could be connected to right-wing teapartiers, my right wing fiends  on fb were telling us to keep calm, no one knows anything the government might be behind it.

Now that it turns out it could be two muslims  suddenly they want everyone to know all immigrants are evil and will destroy america.

FLMountainMan: Olfin Bedwere: So this will free up Obama's schedule so he can visit West, Texas, right? I certainly hope so, and I'm not being snarky about it.

Think about how crazy this week has been.  There's a mushroom cloud over a city in Texas, 20 people dead, 200 injured and it's back page news.

An Elvis impersonator sending ricin-poisoned letters to the President and Congress is the third craziest news story this week.


And the antics of a bellicose commie dictator boy god-king with a nuke are back page news

YoungSwedishBlonde: cretinbob: YoungSwedishBlonde: SamWaters: I'm not happy. I'm blown away. I thought the terrorist was a right wing Christian white man from Texas.  I'm just a sorry ass mess with a bum electric leg. Time for another scotch and soda.

BAWWWW someone speculated that an attack on April 15th might have something to do with right-wing terrorists. Better call in the WAHHHHbulance.

Except that they are right wing terrorists

No, only white people Christians are REAL right-wingers. All Muslims are liberals.

torquestripe: philotech: Yes please: TwistedFark: Unfortunately we have a lot of people in this thread that don't understand anything other than what they see on Law and Order or CSI. A lot of unrealistic expectations all around... its kind of shocking.

I posted this in a redlit thread regarding the "public safety" exception to Miranda rights:


"IMO, we've suffered enough abuses today, with the undeclared martial law being enforced in the city of Boston and the warrantless house to house searches that were conducted in a 20-block area, when this untrained teenager with serious gunshot wounds hid for 18 hours a couple of blocks from where he ditched his car.
All I hear from Boston and Washington is a bunch of back-slapping and hero worship of the police and DHS.  This was an embarrassment from a law enforcement perspective, if these were actual operatives or people with military training they'd be long gone or would have taken out a lot more people.
A 19-year old college student with no formal training and serious wounds was able to successfully hide from thousands of highly-trained law enforcement "professionals," with their sniffer dogs, helicopters, robots, tanks, and tactical bullshiat for almost a whole day?  Shameful."

These guys were amateurs, and they shut down a major city for a day, while we essentially declared martial law.  And the politicians and police are up on their soapboxes beating their chests and suckin' each other's dicks, and you jingoistic morons are eating it up.  They're amateurs, and they won.

USA! USA! USA!  WE'RE #1

I suppose this falls under "whatnot"...

Fox News had this headline:

Chilling tweets from suspected Twitter account of Boston Marathon bomberDoes anybody see a problem here? Do people who speak English learn any English in schools any more? How can a presumably college educate professional news writer construct a headline like this? Do they know that the person was the bomber, and suspect it may or may not be his twitter account? Did the legal department say it was OK to call him the bomber, but to protect themselves from liability that they had to use conditional language on linking him to tweets?

I wish people would stop crying about Miranda rights.  Federal law allows that right to be temporarily waived in the interest of public safety....(i.e. more bombs on timers or more accomplices ready to detonate more bombs).  Stop being morons.  This is an extremely dangerous situation where having 1 dead and the other in custody doesn't necessarily mean the coast is all clear yet.  Once they are confident all threats have been neutralized he will be Mirandized.

philotech: Tommy Moo: GoldSpider: And how can we call this "terrorism" without knowing the bombers' motive?

They were radical Muslims who grew to hate this country because we tolerate homosexuality and female sexuality. Next?

Citation please.

Yeah, he said America snubbed him, the brothers held no ill will towards America, and that's why they bombed the marathon.  Could've done that in a lot less.  Let me guess, you've used the phrase "speak truth to power" a time or two in your life, amirite?

FLMountainMan: Cut to the chase.  This thread has eight hundred comments.  No one wants to read all that.


Since what he wrote was pretty unique in this thread and contained some pretty interesting analysis, maybe you should take another look?

I'm too lazy to make the image macro, but it would be along the lines of "At first I was like 'I'm on a boat', now I'm like 'I'm about to have a dick in my box.'"

machoprogrammer: And the funny part is all the feds and police wouldn't have caught them if they hadn't been stupid and hightailed it the fark out of there before anyone knew who they were.


The guy in the hospital fingered them first and then someone who knew who #2 was called the FBI. They may have gotten out but they were doomed from the minute that pic was published. There was no escaping this one.

You sound awful tough. I've seen it asked before: what would you have done differently?
