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.


Make sure you account for snark. I was "hoping" they were white and "celebrated" when finding out they are Caucasian

dark brew: cretinbob: Since it looks like he's intubating him, that's damn funny

Huh?  No blade in the left hand and no tube in the right hand.  Plus, there is the NRB on the face.  He's not being intubated.
To get technical it looks like a combitube or King. Since those are quicker to insert ad you can do it without a blade that would make more sense......
Actually it is a King being held in the left hand and about to be inserted.


It's okay. New England style is worth the extra effort.

Uh, blowing up civilians with a bomb at a marathon is terrorism.  It's the act, not the motive.

Are you stupid?

Just like all those people in Gitmo and our much larger political prison in Afghanistan got?

Who are all these American citizens who committed crimes on American soil that in in Gitmo and Afghanistan?  Go away troll.

Lawyers for the Obama administration are arguing that the United States will be irreparably harmed if it has to abide by a judge's ruling that it can no longer hold terrorism suspects indefinitely without trial in military custody.

He's not in military custody.  He's in the custody of probably the FBI, because he's an American citizen who committed a crime on American soil.  It doesn't matter if it's classified as a terrorist attack, it's a domestic crime.  Your argument is invalid.


My argument is that once the US government starts claiming someone is a terrorist, the law typically goes out the window, as Obama fighting for the right to toss anyone he claims is a terrorist into military prisons, forever, without a trial pretty much proves.

Other democracies manage to capture, try, and convict terrorists as criminals without all this extralegal bullshiat. Yet here we are in a thread with multiple people acting like reading this guy his rights is somehow a bad thing.

What happened in the really but different? Suspect the second, was arrested the bombing of the night of Friday the day of the hunting season they. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev found after seeing the blood on a boat to park behind the home of resident of Watertown. Under the cover of plastic, human blood is looking for people inside, and the boat. Officers answer, they threw a grenade "flash bang" to flush out of the boat. Meantimes the President was being selected and Miloš Zeman was the first directly elected Czech President! Night of any late Thursday ended in shocking spasm of violence began. I was killed, his brother, the Tamerlan Tsarnaev a shot to the upper Tsarnaev policeman was carjacked Mercedes suspect has been killed and police officers Tsarnaev.
Test of Friday night ended with a flood of relief as know we do (know). "You are exceeding the hunt ... and justice. Suspect, in custody" Twitter is writing to the Boston police station. Applause at the scene, bystanders. SWAT is passing trucks, officers returned the feeling: and "Thank you", he said to each speaker. "It is a happy thing."
Head Timothy Al Ben, Massachusetts police "We have a suspect in custody." "We guys are. You are tired, tonight. Are here to win we"
Already problems!
Feelings of loss of height, has been shown already in depth and in the cube. A few days here, violent riots, increased the efficacy of the new text Tsarnaevs.
As a victim, researchers turned into another task on Friday to determine how the violence is. He said to the dealer, was involved in attack and there is no evidence to authorities beyond the 2 Tsarnaev brothers marathon anyone excepting misteatching of where. That warning alarm of federal authorities, self-responsibility and lawyer warning "Miranda" of Tsarnaev he was right is, project delays. Because they still, the public, are at risk, you may have to say is an exception if it. Before you were planning to Tsarnaev, you might have read the Miranda rights to bomb other partners or question their authorities. So important!

Hell...how do we even know they're not right-wing without knowing their motives?

I sorta hope he wakes up and, when asked why, he says, "We did it for Sean. We did it for Bill. We did it for Rush, and Glenn, and Michael, and Ann, and Michelle, and Alex, and Wayne, and Pat, and all the other people who are trying to bring America back to God. You think we gave a damn about a land we never saw? Well, we give a damn about America, and those right-thinking individuals are doing more to bring America back in line with God than most people ever could. They serve God just as we as Muslims do, and for that, they will be rewarded in heaven, as my brother is being rewarded right now."

Not gonna happen, I know. But I can dream, can't I?

Fark It: 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


And in under 24 hours.  Can you imagine how long it may have taken without those that you mentioned?

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

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.


He;s lucky he wasn't "accidently" shot. Good thing I'm not a police officer...

They seemed to think that they were too slick and would get away with it. It was reported that after the bombings they went on with their everyday lives. Black hat went back home, and white hat went back to campus and was there as late as Wednesday. When their pictures were released is when they met back up and tried to run, and that is when all of this madness started.

Rwa2play: 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.


Letting the chips fall where they may is all fine and dandy and I'm on board with that, but that has nothing to do with passing a judgement on the handling of the case from the incident to the point where the suspect(s) were apprehended/neutralized. GAT is outraged that people chose to comply with a request by authorities to keep off the streets, calling it martial law. Apparently, the public cannot act in concert with the authorities in an effort to bring a case to a close without it implying an outrageous violation of our civil rights.  The fact that there was no declaration of martial law is irrelevant, so pointing out this absurdity is entirely justified despite the fact that the case, including trial and sentencing, has not occurred. Maybe, just maybe, people are willing to help catch a couple douchebags who plant bombs at a peaceful local and famous sporting event.

Let's let things fall where they may, I agree. But it is easy to acknowledge that this shiat was handled in a top-notch manner from the first moment.

im glad this is all over, but what bothers me is that theres little that can be done to prevent something like this from happening again.

they were walking around in a crowded public space, dropped a couple bags and fled.  its not just marathons, it could happen at a parade, park, etc.  at least theres some security when entering a stadium.  heaven forbid they were suicide bombers, and secured themselves in a crowd for maximum damage.

i guess nothings really changed, the same danger was there before, it just never was a concern

Actually, Obama's philosophy is that U.S. Citizens who commit such acts on U.S. soil are treated as criminals, not enemy combatants. They are tried in civilian courts, not military courts. This is a bit of a reversal from  previous administrations. (Note the plural)

That being said, this situation could upset that whole notion. But let's not forget that Lincoln is regularly voted the greatest president ever and he suspended habeus corpus for most of his tenure.

al's hat: What's really the difference between a life sentence or death sentence as long as they are removed from the gene pool?


1) They can murder again in jail. Big problem. Can't do anything about a lifer who's a repeat murder. What are they gonna do, increase his sentence?

2) He can influence other inmates.

3) He can escape and murder again.

4) He can have his sentence commuted.

5) He might be able to score a conjugal visit.

UNC_Samurai: 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.

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.


I'll join this train. My stance was always that I hoped it was white guys so that the collateral damage from possible resulting xenophobic racism would be minimal. Totally blew me away that they were Russian. This really seems like one of those instances where you get a whole bunch of adjectives together that seem to not fit, and yet exist anyway. Everyone wins, and everyone lost. I do hope the remaining suspect is treated with the dignity and respect an American citizen deserves. I'd really like to turn our reputation with the rest of the world around a little bit.

Now, the fallout. Popcorn time.

Gyrfalcon:
Myself, I was watching last night and saw no decisions that were not tactically driven or which did not stem from the immediacy of the moment.

Oh please. Next you be on about "minimizing risk" and "protecting civilians" and other rubbish concerns that are nothing more than excuses for actual thinking.

You know, for a professional airline pilot the "immediacy of the moment" is about one half a second and two seconds is considered a life time. These jokers had almost 24 hours to get their heads straight and they never did. Just please. Take such bullshiat excuses and feed them to other suckers.

thisiszombocom: im glad this is all over, but what bothers me is that theres little that can be done to prevent something like this from happening again.

they were walking around in a crowded public space, dropped a couple bags and fled.  its not just marathons, it could happen at a parade, park, etc.  at least theres some security when entering a stadium.  heaven forbid they were suicide bombers, and secured themselves in a crowd for maximum damage.

i guess nothings really changed, the same danger was there before, it just never was a concern


The older brother was on the government's radar.

Fubini: Fark It: 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.

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


Well, at the end of the day with all their bombs and guns, they only killed three people.  that crazy Korean at Virginia Tech killed over 30 all by himself with just a couple of handguns - one a .22.  Dude in Colorado got more, again working solo.  These two working together only get three.  Amateurs, but are now infamous because they hit a very high profile event

Damn. I only remember the Super Friends version of that.


I think it was the helmet that made me think of that picture.

farkinglizardking: That being said, this situation could upset that whole notion. But let's not forget that Lincoln is regularly voted the greatest president ever and he suspended habeus corpus for most of his tenure


Lincoln actually face a legitimate threat to the Republic, there was an open, unlawful rebellion.  The Constitution allows for such extreme circumstances.  This kid is a criminal.  He was never a threat to our Republic.  Lives and property?  Of course.

yukichigai: Stoj: Turns out no Miranda rights after all.

Thanks Obama!

Let's just nip this in the bud:

http://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/publications/law-enforcement-bulle ti n/february2011/legal_digest

The feds can legally question him about things which are of an immediate concern to public safety, like say all those damn bombs he and his brother scattered around the place.  None of what they ask him can be used in court, and if they stray away from questions concerning public safety the feds can have the crap sued out of them.

They aren't Mirandizing him because it's more important to find the rest of the bombs than it is to build a case against him.  Once they clear the area he'll be read his rights.


They don't have to Mirandize him for him to not cooperate. He can sit there and not say a goddamn thing; they can't compel him to talk. What are they going to do, torture him?

I can't believe some people in here support this. I shouldn't be surprised, the average American doesn't give a fark about anybody's rights except their own. First, there's the "exception" in the event police feel there is an imminent threat. Next thing you know, the police feel an imminent threat from everyone they run across.

Tommy Moo: 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.

Here's two for you:
