vernonFL: Maybe this was a Borat sketch gone horribly wrong?
BraveNewCheneyWorld: You grouped yourself with them as soon as you decided to white knight for them. Who's fault is that?
HotWingConspiracy: Chechens? NOBODY won this betting pool.
Joe Blowme: OtherLittleGuy: T shut down twice in a week. Wow./Chechens? When did they have oil?They dont, but they do have islam/sorry FARK it wasnt a white tea party guy like you were wanting it to be.
Darth_Lukecash: They've been in America for 10 years. The youngest was 9. The case could be made that they were Americanized, or at least exposed to American ideas and ways.These weren't people who just came here on a whim.
BarkingUnicorn: msupf: is fark still messing up in small ways for anyone else?posts are showing in different orders on refresh, and refresh often shoots me back a page (paginate @100)Thanks. I was about to order a new mouse.
vudukungfu: This just in. CNN's reporting that the 7-11 clerk wasn't even supposed to be there that day.
Darth_Lukecash: The case could be made that they were Americanized, or at least exposed to American ideas and ways.
BraveNewCheneyWorld: InmanRoshi: BraveNewCheneyWorld: Remember just a few days ago when scores of you Dem loyalists insisted that this must be various right wing domestic groups? Go F*ck Yourselves.Yep, you only went 1 for 2 on domestic terrorism this week with the TeaTard caught mailing in Ricin to Senators.Politics of PeaceExcept I'm not a right winger. I don't have to be a right winger to point out that Dem loyalists on this site are routinely a bunch of farking assholes with their habit of blaming their political opponents for everything that goes wrong.
BraveNewCheneyWorld: It was more than one or 2 people here claiming that they were domestic right wingers. Look, if you don't like how your cohorts make you look right now, maybe you should remember that for next time. Lying about it isn't going to help you.
dittybopper: There are only two possibilities: Either they possessed the guns legally, and had a Massachusetts FID showing that they passed a background check, or they possessed the guns illegally. It's as simple as that.In other words, Massachusetts law is already much stricter that what was proposed and failed in the Senate the other day. If anyone tries to make political hay out of it, saying that's why we need universal background checks, it's likely to backfire.
Bit'O'Gristle: Shoutingsilence: The more I think about the stranger the situation gets. Why would the two most wanted men in America rob a convenience store? Possibly to cause a distraction so the rest of their cell can escape? Ugh, my brain is too tired to think logically after watching this madness unfold./My guess would be (as to the reason for such idiocy) They were out of money, every law enforcement agency, federal agency, and redneck hunter was after their ass, and they felt trapped and desperate for cash and transport. They had close to 0 chance to get away, hence why they were wearing bomb vests. They won't be captured alive, and they know it. I'm sure that in most if not all police officers minds now, you see this surviving guy, you light him up, and keep shooting until he stops twitching. They wouldn't admit that publicly of course, but I would bet all the money in my pockets against all the money in your pockets that the local and state police are loaded for bear and spoiling for a fight.
Cybernetic: Coiled Hot 1: dittybopper: zerkalo: farking chechensWait: I was under the impression that it was right wing domestic terrorism. I mean, based on the speculation on new shows and on a lot of people on Fark, I thought it was the next Timothy McVeigh.This...A lot of crow shall be eaten today.No it won't. At least not publicly. They'll just save up whatever bile they have left and use it the next time an opportunity presents itself.
unchellmatt: Grand_Moff_Joseph: Updated badge for your use:[lh5.googleusercontent.com image 360x350]I work for the MIT Police, so I'm getting a kick, yadda yadda and... Thanks for that. For those who are curious, the man killed was a very nice guy, and more than that, he was a Geek, and a damned good one. "We lost one of our own" takes on a double meaning for me now.This is what we're wearing.[web.mit.edu image 850x919]
Elegy: office_despot: I can't help give a short laugh about all last night's FARK speculation as to the ethnicity of the perpetrators. Chechen is literally as caucasian as you can get.Yeah, but it's also about as Muslim as you can get, which is as non-white as you can get, leaving us with really white no -whites.Amirite?
HotWingConspiracy: And sorry, but these two lived in the US and if it turns out Islamic fundamentalism is their motivation, they're right wing.
kronicfeld: vudukungfu: This just in. CNN's reporting that the 7-11 clerk wasn't even supposed to be there that day.Wolf Blitzer reporting that one of the suspects had sex with a dead guy in the bathroom.
Jim_Tressel's_O-Face: frogjelly: Suspect 1 "Tamerlan says he doesn't usually take his shirt off so girls don't get bad ideas: "I'm very religious."What very religious might dress like:http://johanneshirn.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/Will-Box-For-Pass po rt/G0000VQW7v6xWA7o/I0000mAtTqiZ3vbk
DamnYankees: FarkinNortherner: While the death and injury toll has been terrible, incompetent terrorists really are my favourite sort.These guys seem pretty competent. They did what they intended to do.
