Shootout with Boston Marathon Suspects — One dead, one on loose — developing


Suspect #1 in black cap dead. Died in same hospital still caring for bombing victims.

Suspects believed to be from abroad, foreign trained. “We believe this man to be a terrorist, someone who came here to kill people.”

Tied to shooting of MIT campus policemen overnight. Two policemen shot, one dead.

Watertown, MA on lockdown as explosives set off. All mass transit suspended in Boston. Also all taxi service.

NY Times has summary of what happened overnight.

Suspect #1 on loose, initially was reported based on police scanner chatter as Sunil Tripathi the Brown University student who disappeared several weeks ago — but AP reporting two suspects were from area of Russia near Chechnya:

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Boston Marathon Bomber

Bad news for my sofa detective future.

Good news 4 Sunil . Maybe better to be missing than to be a dead terrorist.

Luckily I have kept up on Chechnya . I was just saying to partner -what sort of person would put a bomb next to an 8 year old boy. Belsen.

Two words come to mind: CLOSED BORDERS

Why the heck do the supposed protectors of our nation let such people in our country?

Liberals are so stupid.

    Because “diversity is our greatest strength” . . . even when it’s maiming and murdering us.

    Clearly, these misunderstood Muslim terrorists were just the usual “poor, uneducated” types who have long suffered under the boot of American imperialism.

    What we need now are more liberal immigration laws!

The wish is (IMHO): Capture alive! Waterboarding until every single item of his funding AND terror training is screamed!

Then let the citizenry of Boston take over.

What better place for trained Muslim Jihadis to blend in … an American university.

They terrorists were brothers … one on the loose. Hopefully whatever backyard window he breaks into, will have a weapon (with at least 15 bullets in it) on the other side. Cops are only minutes away.

The marxist media continues to avoid reporting these are muslime terrorists.

Color me surprised….

It’s a bad day for America’s far left Islamist apologists.

While David Sirota is undoubtedly crying in his Cheerios this morning because the terrorists were not white and American born, he is undoubtedly working on a column to say they were driven to act by American “white privilege”.

There’s a lot of media people and politicians who are so gosh darn disappointed this morning.

They so, so wanted the bombers to be Jim Jo-Bob and Bubba Tea-Party from Alabama who always talked about how much they hated ‘queers, Mexicans, and rag-heads.’

On second thought, I take that back.

I bet the media pronounces these brothers from Chechnya, at least one of whom listed his world view on Facebook as: Islam, to be a couple of white guys!

Third suspect possible. Well Gollee (thanks to Gomer). Bring in that whole damn family for a “water” session.

Professor, thank you for keeping us informed!

Hey Deval, turn loose the National Guard for God Sake!

Remember Beslan? Children’s lives mean nothing to these animals. R.I.P. Martin Richard, Krystle Campbell and Lu Lingzi.

MSNBC “reporters” on suicide watch. Chris Matthews committed for “24 hour observation” as he kept repeating “right-wing”, “tea party” in preparation for his show rather than reading the teleprompter provided for him.

FOX News TV this morning just now: Martha McCallum is confused … isn’t Russia the natural enemy of Chechnya? Why would Chechnyans want to attack the US?

No mention of radical islam.

Martha McCaskill in hearing yesterday can’t grasp why Boston is terrorism and Newton is simply massacre. This from a senator on the Homeland Security Committee.

Honorable John Bolton gives commentary on FOX about the Al Qaeda-Chechnyn connection.

An urban area with hundreds of thousands of people is ordered locked down while one or two armed fugitives are pursued.

Meaning no disrespect to the dead and maimed, I wonder if the terrorists won this round.

The lockdown decision warrants scrutiny from a number of perspectives, not the least of which is civil liberties. Will, and should, the American people stand for this kind of thing?

I’m posting at the bottom of a preempted thread because this is probably not the moment to have the discussion—but it’s not too soon to flag the issue.
