Shyla: Can someone update me please? Do they know for a fact where this guy is? Holed up in a house? Or driving somewhere unknown? I'm confused.

With the entirety of the USA looking for you having bombed the Boston Marathon, why would you go knock off a 7/11?

muck4doo: muck4doo: Amos Quito: muck4doo: Can't get over this. A 19 year old kid gets himself into this position. Meanwhile his elder teachers keep living on with no shame.

Yeah, reminds me of how it's old fart politicians START the wars, but they always send gullible young kids off to fight and die for King and Country.

Same psychology, I presume.

I hate it. Sacrificing the children of others for the win I suppose.

Are we really that different from Carthage?

Apparently humanity has some serious bugs in the system.

We always blame "other" ideologies, political/religious systems, races, etc., but when you cut through the crap...

It's humans.

Boojum2k: CygnusDarius: Boojum2k: CygnusDarius: @JohnFugelsang 16m

Reminder - 45 Senators just voted to let Dzhokhar Tsarnaev buy weapons at gun shows w/no inconvenient background checks.

I'm wondering, before the bombing, what about him would have caused him to fail a background check? The Islamic thing? Immigrant?

From my understanding -I may be wrong- but gun shows don't have background checks like you would have in a store, am I right?.

Not my question. Rewind one week, what about this guy would have caused him to fail a background check at a store?

Point taken, he would not.

darth_badger: One cop was just debriefed and relieved. Does that mean he took his underwear down and pooped?

I laughed very hard at that....years ago is decades now though.....yes, I watched that live....

AGremlin: This is starting to remind me of the Buckwheat SNL skit years ago:

Ted Koppel: John David Stutts spent his childhood here in this modest home in Lima, Ohio.

Ted Koppel: John David Stutts graduated from Unionville High School.

Ted Koppel: His classmates called him "the loner."

Ted Koppel: Stutts was a member of the Key Club...

Ted Koppel: The Audio-Visual Squad...

Ted Koppel: And president of the Future Assassins of America.

Ted Koppel: It's no wonder that his classmates chose him, "Most Likely to Kill Buckwheat."

Gas Station Attendant: [in New England accent] Sure, I remember Stutts. He was a loner, but a real hard worker. I mean, he pumped the gas, he checked the oil, he washed the windows. Nice kid.

Ted Koppel: Do you believe he killed Buckwheat?

Man: Oh, yes, definitely. That's all he talked about. I remember one day I says, uh, "Stutts, why are you working so hard?" He says, "'Cause I'm saving up to buy a gun, so I can kill Buckwheat." [shrugs]

Lunchlady: soporific: Treygreen13: soporific: If that's true, why did they wait so long? Why not leave the country hours after it happened before the authorities know it's you?

I imagine one of the first things they do to find suspects is check the flight logs of all flights out of the country immediately after the bombing from the nearest airport.

But no one knew who they were on Monday, and it would be pretty easy to simply have plane tickets ready at an airport in a nearby city. Simply get in a car, drive 100 miles, and get on a plane. Of course, it might be a little suspicious that someone from Boston is leaving from another city, so perhaps that plan might not work. Since I'm not a mass murdering psychopath, I've never really looked into it.

You can walk through the woods to Canada pretty much anywhere between Lake Champlain in Vermont to Caribou in Maine. These guys either wanted to go out like this or they are the stupidest people on the planet.

If they went straight north they'd be in Quebec, and you really don't want to get on their bad side.

/CSB- had an Ottawa police staff sergeant as a student once, told me stories of people who would madly drive across the river into Ontario rather than get pulled over in QC, since 'leaning on a suspect' means kicking their teeth in

bulldg4life: The tumblr about the MIT cop that was killed, "memories of sean" is really tough to read.

He seemed like an amazing person

Sean was a great guy.  The story of how we met says it all.  I walked into a grad student pub with just enough cash for one beer.  My nightcap so to speak.  I drank in silence just reflecting on my day.  I finished, feigned irritation about being out of cash and told the bartender good night.  Before I could stand up, the man to my right ordered me another beer and introduced himself as Sean.  I think we downed a pitcher over the next hour telling our stories.  He loved MIT, loved the community, and loved being a cop.

We last spoke just a week ago at the same grad student pub.  I randomly saw him at the opposite end of the room and made my way over just to say hello before I left for the night. I'll never forget that last hand shake.  RIP Sean.

Tatsuma: soporific: I've been watching Hannibal, which is my favorite new show, and that's exactly what Lector is doing. He enjoys watching people talk about his work, and he basks in the knowledge that they don't know it's him.

Hannibal is such a great show hopefully it got less viewers this week (1.4) because of the events on Monday

That might be the case. People may not have been in the mood for a show about a serial killer.

Of course, it's also possible that it's not what people were expecting. It's slow, deliberate, and thoughtful, and people might be wanting something more exciting given that it's about Hannibal Lector. Bryan Fuller has a long history of making great shows that people just didn't watch.

BafflerMeal: digitalrain: Suspicious empty medical vehicle parked in a hosp parking garage...

I read that as 'Suspicious empty medical vehicle parked in a hosp parking garage'.

I was listening to the scanner. They said suspicious. So I typed suspicious.

Dimensio: Shyla: TMZ says reddit has a 100% authentic picture of the deceased suspect. I tried to find it on reddit but I can never find anything on that mess of a website.

I located a direct link. Authentic or not, the image is very graphic; the body shows an injury inconsistent with a bullet wound (in addition to several consistent with a bullet wound).

That may be a thoracotomy "incision", which is weird because I don't know if it's indicated for penetrating AND blunt trauma (it's only indicated for penetrating trauma to the chest with loss of vitals en route or in ED)
