I cant understand why they would lift the lockdown while one of the bombers was still running around.. the whole point of it was to keep everyone safe so these guys couldnt hurt anyone else. according to the police, these guys were armed with explosives so what gives?? and what a coincidence a civilian finds the guy in his boat as soon as he steps out of his house when the lockdown was lifted...

No, it's going to be spun as if they were domestic terrorists, despite the facts. Watch and see.

That wasn't OBAMA's talk. Geez, like I keep trying to point out. Seriously, there's no reason to be so defensive. Take a deep breath. :-)

You actually think BO is going to deny they had those foreign influences? It's just like whatever radio talk show I happened upon tonight. They are falling all over themselves to conjure up the deepest conspiracy they can think of to jump on the bandwagon and not be thought to be behind the curve.

He did have a gun with him in the boat.

He did not have a suicide vest on him.

He was badly hurt and probably didn't go through enough brain washing that his brother had or didn't have the same conviction he had.

Hell this kid ran over his own brother to get away. He never wanted to die. In the end he is just some punk ass who was trying to walk in his brothers stupid footsteps.


Deport the rest of his family though his uncles seem to have a head on their shoulders.

Aunt needs to be deported from Canada IMHO.

Father needs to have a ban from traveling to the states.

I was asleep since pg. 318 but woke up to hear the news they finally caught him.

People thinking this kid is going to give clear answers as to why? It won't happen.

My question is they investigated his brother about 2 years ago? They should have kept better tabs on him EVEN after they said he seemed fine.
 Quoting: Ailithe


Do you really think that after 4 days of running away, wounded or not, the thought of being shot on sight hasn't passed through his mind? He knew he was either going to spend the rest of his life in prison, be given a death sentence or get shot by a cop, a fed or a civilian. If he wouldn't have wanted to die, he would have surrendered in plain sight where civilians would have seen him unarmed, even naked if need be, so that he wouldn't get shot (the police wouldn't have done that in public for no reason). He would have gotten out of the boat, raised both hands or something. Or, better yet, he'd have ran! He'd have driven the car far away or taken another, hid in the sewers or something. He apparently managed to keep his head on his shoulders smartly enough to not get tracked by the police's dogs. Again, apparently, because leaving a trail of blood is more than enough for a hound to get a scent of. I mean, come on. Do I really need to go on?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31678864


I just think he thought he could get away. I don't think he wanted to die.
 Quoting: Little Willow


And I think we should let go of this thing for a bit. Let's just wait and see how the whole thing develops, although I've no real hope of hearing any word directly from the guy's mouth. If that's the case, which most likely will be, we'll keep running in circles if all we have is speculation. Searching for slip-ups, on the other hand, is an entirely different aspect of the problem and I believe any one of us would welcome learning from it. Surely there is more to uncover. These cover-up operations have forever been crappy attempts at lying to the public. There's always an untied end to it all.

Re: MIT SHOOTING! 1 OFFICER DEAD! 1 BOSTON BOMBER IN CUSTODY! POLICE SUV STOLEN! OFFICERS DOWN! EXPLOSIVES!!
So... let me get this straight. Two guys blow up bombs at the marathon in Boston. They do not attempt to flee too far, as any sane person would. No, they instead just stay around for coffee, strippers and whatnot. A few days later they decide to ambush a cop, kill him and steal a car at gunpoint. Clever! Talk about keeping low. Eventually, the driver is released unharmed because... why not. They weren't trying to injure or kill anyone in the process, right? Oh, and let's not forget all the explosives they threw out of the car, but somehow missed more than all the Stormtroopers combined (could we please get that tape already? Really wanna see what CGI can do today). Finally, one of the guys gets killed, the other one escapes.

Guy #2 is later found crawled up into a boat. He doesn't shoot or move or anything. That's until the police start raining down flashbangs on him. This same formerly very-dangerous, Rambo-like 19 y.o., doesn't care for his diabolical plans anymore. Doesn't try to come out waving a white flag, doesn't throw any other bombs or rocks at least, doesn't have a gun to end his misery. Nope, none of that. Instead, he just lies on his back waiting for that faithful bullet to the neck that will most probably bury the truth altogether... and that kind'a wraps it.


Oh, sweet smell of bullshit in the morning, how I adore you.

He wasn't running away for 4 days. He was running around being a typical teen after the bombing UNTIL Thursday when they released photos of him and his brother and they new their gig was up. Personally, I think they got away with it because of so many of the random people on the internet posting pictures of who they thought it was.

It wasn't a 4 day man hunt for this kind. It was from last night when they shot the MIT officer and even then they didn't know it was them UNTIL they started tossing explosive devices at the officers that were chasing them. If this kid was so smart. They would have got the hell out of dodge. They probably had another plan in place and they screwed up.

Honestly, he may have had help hiding. It's also not that hard to stop blood from dripping all over the place he was a med student. Pretty sure he rendered some basic first aid to himself. This kid is far from smart because he did get caught and he did surrender. Not sure where you are getting your news from. He was just outside the perimeter that the cops had set up. So what he was good at hide and seek...didn't pan out to well because some Joe Smoe found him hiding in his boat.

Chances are he may have been under a crawl space to one of the houses or porches before that. Don't forget the police were busy chasing after everyone with a hoody and a back pack they saw ONTOP of looking for this kid.

He did have a gun with him in the boat.

He did not have a suicide vest on him.

He was badly hurt and probably didn't go through enough brain washing that his brother had or didn't have the same conviction he had.

They are starting a witch hunt out there for those of us who were reporting that the missing Brown university student was a suspect. I know a LOT of us heard that on the scanner that night, but I am even seeing stories now where the authors claim to have listened to the entire thing and nowhere is he mentioned in the audio.

THIS may well end up being a severe backlash and may not end well. The articles out there I am running across are pretty angry, acting like we were making a witch-hunt out of speculation alone - I heard it loud and clear on the scanner, loud and frigging clear. Someone else chime in here as well, I know plenty heard it also.

I know a LOT of us heard that on the scanner that night, but I am even seeing stories now where the authors claim to have listened to the entire thing and nowhere is he mentioned in the audio.

THIS may well end up being a severe backlash and may not end well. The articles out there I am running across are pretty angry, acting like we were making a witch-hunt out of speculation alone - I heard it loud and clear on the scanner, loud and frigging clear. Someone else chime in here as well, I know plenty heard it also.

I heard it too! I started telling some of my close family that I heard that, and then they told me the MSM said otherwise. I felt like an idiot when hours later the cops changed their stories too.

Next they will ban scanner feeds!! Grrr.

Does anyone have info on the person who owned the Mercedes? It's curious that they spared his life. I saw that he had a Coexist bumper sticker on his car. (ironic twist; still maybe he was able to appeal to their humanity?)

Search google news for "scanner". I hope everyone enjoyed this thread the other night, looks like odds are we won't have that option any longer. I think the real reason is we made the MSM look just like the outdated dinosaur it was. Even with inaccuracies, we were way more accurate and hours ahead of them all night. I promise you they won't let that go unanswered ;)

Ahh but it was great in its heyday. The best place to be on the web at the time, with the scanner playing, getting both updates and total bedlam coming through.

One thing I did learn is that there are times, despite assurances of command and control, that the police really have no idea what on earth is going on.

I also learned that the web has made cable news history for real breaking news.

pretty soon "GLP" will be the household-word, and not "Drudge".
