shower_in_my_socks: Fark It: These guys were amateurs, and they shut down a major city for a day, while we essentially declared martial law.

Maybe you can share with us your professional law enforcement background that makes you such a great judge about whether the ATF, FBI, and police and SWAT in a major US city, were all "amateurs." Or maybe you can STFU. They had two bomb-throwing (literally), heavily-armed terrorists on the run with nothing to lose, carjacking people and hiding in a densely-populated residential neighborhood. And you know what? Not a SINGLE CIVILIAN was killed in the pursuit of these two @ssholes. And for that, they get some pathetic armchair quarterback Internet tough guy like you calling them "amateurs." Fark It? More like fark you, buddy.

The ignore button has gotten some great farkin' use this week with some of you d!ckwads.

This may have been mentioned... but I wonder if Donnie Wallburg got footage during the last few days for his Boston cop reality show.  It's between seasons, I think (never watched it) but I imagine he would have wanted to get a production crew going after Monday's bombings.  If he had a crew in Watertown tonight he's got a hell of a first episode next season.

Fista-Phobia: paulseta: 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 partne ...

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.


Rebellions are only unlawful when they fail.  The American Revolution was a rebellion as well.

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

Your Average Witty Fark User: 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.

WTF does someone have to do for you to feel malice towards them?

Fubini: This guy seems like he was caught up with bad company and a bad situation. He's certainly a bad guy, but I don't feel like he's terrorist-evil, more naive. But that's just my read on the situation, none of us really know what's going through the guy's head.


"Birds of a feather flock together." Which means similar types of people hang out together.

I heard people talking like this about Malvo too. But think to your own experience. You don't associate with people who make you uncomfortable, typically. If someone suggested you blow up a bunch of random civilians, most people would respond with, "Yeah, it's late, I gotta be getting some sleep," and go home and call the cops. At the very least, avoid associating with that person.

But if your response is, "Hmmm... that's an interesting idea," then you're probably a nasty sociopath too.

Fine, but the sentiment of his post was the same. He thinks the law enforcement was "an embarrassment." Well fark him. I'm a bleeding heart liberal, but this what the law enforcement pulled off in Boston these past 24 hours was farking incredible. And playing it down like it was just some "teenager" -- f*ck, man. That d!ckhead maimed 200 farking people, killed a cop, and seriously wounded another one. It's not like they were teenieboppers throwing rocks at windows.

MoxieLover: 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...


If that is your attitude it is probably a good thing you're not a cop.  Most of us prefer law enforcement officers to not consider themselves to be judge, jury, and executioner...especially if we're actually not guilty of a crime worthy of the death penalty.

Pretty much. I have never understood why the left in this country is the group that defense these shiatbirds. Everything about Islam is regressive and right winged. They hate women and homosexuals, view science and modern medicine as human arrogance, and believe that apostasy carries a death sentence.

And that's the "moderate" ones. The only difference between moderate and fundamentalist Muslims is that moderate ones just believe abhorrent, right-winged horseshiat quietly, and aren't actively trying to murder us to spread it.

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.

The Constitution doesn't even say you have the right to not offer information that may incriminate yourself but even if you want to claim it does, it sure as hell doesn't give you the right to remain silent.

I could see disagreeing with the death penalty strictly on personal moral grounds, but he provided specific examples of all but one answer to the original question.

So yeah, it may be bad. You may just be very strongly anti-death penalty and unable to rationally consider any downsides to that stance, or you may be the functional equivalent of the nosepicker laughing at NASA for the moon rockets because without wings they won't be able to fly in space.
