John Paul Jones: Mark my words. This event is the end of CNN, and the end of Fark. There is nothing of use in either, any more.

FizixJunkee: bostonowns: i hope they cut his legs off so he can see how it feels to live without legs the rest of his long long life.And I hope Jeff Bauman, the guy who lost both his legs in the bombing, gets some really cool prosthetic legs that allow him to run faster than he ever could before.
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 ...
philotech: Doesn't there have to be a political agenda tied to the violence to be "terrorism"?
Biological Ali: al's hat: zabadu: A reporter on CNN keeps pronouncing ambulance as AM Boo Lance.I had some bad psghetti at the libary onect and hads to go in the amboolance. It was very fustrating!What the hell is "onect" supposed to be?
ha-ha-guy: Well on the police tactics, given that:1. The cops apparently did manage to locate all automobiles he could use to escape (the Honda(s)).2. They had enough fire power in the area he didn't feel comfortable going for a second car jacking.3. They had enough of an impact he felt the need to go ground in the back of a boat despite being injured.4. They were close enough to respond to a 911 call and contain him once a third party found him.5. They did all this all based on a shooting that occurred last night.6. Only 1 dead cop (MIT) and one wounded (Transit), no dead third parties, and they took the guy alive.This doesn't exactly go down in the annuals of history as a police fail. Sure we can hindsight their decision the perimeter size, but it did get the job done in the sense of forcing him to ground.

derpy: HaywoodJablonski: When's it safe to resume looking down our noses at Boston again? May?Penguins game tomorrow.
torquestripe: We need more immigrants to infuse new life blood in our country.
somedude210: If you're gonna call yourselves journalists and report the news as fact, then it should be made up of facts, not conjecture, not opinion.
Novart: Interesting take.I seem to remember there being a shootout last night that ended up not involving the suspect. Was that when the man was wounded?
Lionel Mandrake: Noam Chimpsky: Stoj: Turns out no Miranda rights after all.Thanks Obama!Where the fark does this "right to remain silent" bullshiat come from in the first place? I ain't finding it in the 5th Amendment or anywhere else in the Constitution.You have the right to not offer information that may incriminate yourself. If you have no law-talking guy present, you "plead the 5th" to keep from providing information that you are not required to provide.Now, whether your rights can be violated without you having knowledge of your rights, and thus their violation, is the question.
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.
bluorangefyre: Charlie Savage @charlie_savageIn statement, Lindsey Graham & John McCain call for suspect to be held as enemy combatant w/out Miranda warnings or appointment of counsel.Last I checked, Dubya wasn't in charge anymore.

edmo: Some of you have a decision to make. You can continue to deny right wing conservative wackos did this or you can blame Islamic inspired terrorists. You can't do both./Congrats to Obama on yet another terrorist take down.
zabadu: License plate blocked by your name. What does it say?
Pumpernickel bread: As a I said upthread a bit, Jeffrey Dahmer didn't die of old age in prison with his life sentence.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.
poot_rootbeer: somedude210: If you're gonna call yourselves journalists and report the news as fact, then it should be made up of facts, not conjecture, not opinion.I can't believe you'd cast this stone in the very same post were you posted some "Criminal Minds" fanfic about how The Hat Brothers ended up on the wrong side of the law because one guy didn't have any friends and the other guy idolized the first guy.
worlddan: Gyrfalcon: Maybe you should join up with another Farker on this thread and start running police operations. From what I can tell, you seem to know exactly how to catch someone at night in a live-fire situation and track a wounded suspect through an urban environment, without interrupting anyone's daily routine. Why not go tell everyone else what they've been doing wrong all these years?There is no need too. Proper police tactics are nothing new or special. The truth is that these decisions were not driven by a tactical decision making process but by the politicians to whom the police report. The whole response shrieks of one imperative: NO MISTAKES. Well, this is what happens when you feel the eyes of the world upon you and you do not dare to make a mistake.[i2.cdn.turner.com image 640x360]
TommyymmoT: CNN is going on and on about Miranda rights.How do they know he wasn't read his Miranda rights?Does any moron actually think that he can be questioned with police impunity as long as they haven't read him his rights yet?It takes a special kind of stupid to think that, that right doesn't kick in, until they declare it so, by reciting it to you.

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.[www.thehayride.com image 480x320]BAWWWW someone speculated that an attack on April 15th might have something to do with right-wing terrorists. Better call in the WAHHHHbulance.
mikaloyd: Can somebody go back into Mondays thread and name and shame all the idiots who were wrong about these bombers' races, religions,nationalities, and political affiliations? Then quote them here? Because that'd be fun to see. And help with ignore lists.
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.
Fubini: Given everything I've read, I don't feel malice towards this guy they just captured.
Stone Meadow: What's keeping the FBI up at night now is the realization dawning on them of all the Somali, Arab, SW Asian, and South Asian Muslims who are following similar pathways on the interwebs. The US should have deported the elder brother when they could have (after his domestic violence conviction), and you can bet any brushes with the law by young male Muslims will now be handled differently to recent history.
