Bonanza Jellybean: o5iiawah: echomike23: so they didn't have a m4 carbine?I heard it was a Glock AK-47 with detachable high-capacity 30 bullet clip mags. Collapsible stocks and barrel shrouds included...Actually they had multiple 900-round ammo belts, and the bullets were injected with depleted uraniaum and then sprayed with teflon so they would penetrate SWAT vests. And they soaked them in rat poison so they wounds wouldn't coagulate./and their unexploded bombs were filled with ebola virus
max_pooper: MrHappyRotter: Good god, it's like half of Fark is 90% haters, half is 90% retards and the other half is 90% psychos.And coming up in the third half of the show is the answer to last week's puzzler.
Walker: Wow, how many times is this story gonna change? And people wonder why other people believe in conspiracy theories.
jaytkay: ZOMG all the exact details were not known immediately in a chaotic situation!!!UNPOSSIBLE!!!!
TopoGigo: Seriously? Are we even talking about the same thing here? Are you honestly saying that the fact that a terrorism suspect was believed to be hiding somewhere in a multi-block area gives probable cause for police to search multiple houses without warrants? Even Scalia can't believe what an asshole you are.
401kman: whidbey: 401kman: whidbey: Because a suspected mass murder wannabe eluding capture isn't probable cause enough to go on a manhunt.It was more like a military invasion than a manhunt. Putting that kind of ordinance in close contact with with civilians is more like something for a time of war. Because the very real problem is that putting troops in with civilians will cause casualties.In this case the police/fbi response was way overkill for the even the worst case projections of what heat the suspects were packing.Not seeing it. And I would have to say that after a horrible act of attempted mass murder that took place at the Marathon and the firefight in Watertown, anyone refusing to cooperate in the ensuing manhunt just ends up looking like a total asshole hampering an apprehension process.Suppose I told you that 97% +/- (say 2%) of the bullets fired/bombs set off were from law enforcement in the apprehension of these suspects in a crowded city neighborhood. And that your odds from being the victim of some gun crime vs a terrorist attack are 100,000 to 1. Lets say there is a 75% percent chance that everything I just said was true.Would you still say that the cops/fbi response had made you any safer?
TopoGigo: whidbey: Because a suspected mass murder wannabe eluding capture isn't probable cause enough to go on a manhunt.Not in my f*cking house, it isn't. If you have probable cause---not just reasonable suspicion--to believe the suspect is in my house, then sure, come on in. If you just happen to think he's somewhere in the neighborhood? Go f*ck yourself.
401kman: With all of the guys in full body armor you think that they could have sent ONE guy into find out if the suspect is armed.
ShawnDoc: They were moving in to take a guy who they thought was armed and dangerous in the boat.
remus: I'm sorry, but if you ask me to choose Safety or Liberty, I'll keep my Liberty and take my chances. They should have been getting search warrants.
Christian Bale: A furious gunfight ensued on Laurel Street in Watertown, where more than 200 rounds were fired, officials said. A transit police officer, Richard H. Donohue, was shot in his right leg and critically wounded during the gunfight.uh...so what is the headline supposed to mean, subby? That there was no crazy shootout in Watertown?
MrHappyRotter: Good god, it's like half of Fark is 90% haters, half is 90% retards and the other half is 90% psychos.
flyinglizard: redsquid: TheManofPA: Amos Quito: jaytkay: ZOMG all the exact details were not known immediately in a chaotic situation!!!UNPOSSIBLE!!!!When in doubt, make shiat up.Chances are that MOST people will remember the made up shiat, and pay little mind to the pesky "details" as they trickle out anyway.Kind of related, wonder how many people remember Richard Jewell as the Olympics bomber.I was just talking about that the other day and couldn't for the life of me remember the actual bombers name. Yay media!It was Jack Ruby.
IntertubeUser: After capturing the younger brother, my opinion of law enforcement improved a bit. And now...this. Cops are generally lying sacks of shiat who are marginally better than the scum they're after, but they are still generally lying sacks of shiat.Never trust cops to tell the truth. Ever.
Krieghund: It's almost as if this whole thing was a lot more complicated than some episode of CSI that wraps up in an hour.
o5iiawah: echomike23: so they didn't have a m4 carbine?I heard it was a Glock AK-47 with detachable high-capacity 30 bullet clip mags. Collapsible stocks and barrel shrouds included...
sheep snorter: Drug money??Better arrest the pharmaceutical industry executives and see why they hate 'Murica.Oh wait thats a legal drug that is destroying America with terrorist old ladies going to Target. But she did not have a drivers license so no crime committed.
echomike23: so they didn't have a m4 carbine?
LessO2: It's gonna be hard to find anyone, short of relatives, to be outraged about shooting at these guys, whether they had any guns or not. There will likely be more people outraged at the fact little brother didn't die.
Krieghund: Walker: Wow, how many times is this story gonna change? And people wonder why other people believe in conspiracy theories.It's almost as if this whole thing was a lot more complicated than some episode of CSI that wraps up in an hour.
