It was from the telegraph.

“06.25 (01.25) I’ve been listening to the Boston Police Scanner. It sounds like the gun battle is over and both suspects are in custoday. It should be stressed: at this stage we don’t know if there’s any connection between this shoot out and Monday’s bombings. “

I would say ‘not confirmed’

Oh, yeah... “06.32 (01.32) Police are now saying second suspect is still at large. CNN are running this picture of the man Nick Allen was describing a moment ago. “

But Mass has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation!

They may want to make hand grenades illegal too.

Or at least a 3 day waiting period.

From your post #2 on this thread:

"Reports that hand grenades throw from highjack vehicle"

I can hardly believe that you posted that.
Where did you hear this? Radio? News? Internet?

This is absolutely crazy. The “media” is telling us it’s not about the bombing suspects while talking about just a couple of robbers with explosives, guns, chaos, gunfights, FBI, etc. Those 7-11s in Massachusetts must be heavily fortified if that’s what it takes for a stick up.

Watching on Fox. One apprehended, white Caucasian. More explosions. One perp at large. Lot of firepower for a robbery. This is going to turnout as a muzzie terrorist attack or some militia types thinking they are reliving Lexington and Concord. First choice is bad. Second choice is worse.

If they are deported fast, I will have lost all faith in our Justice Dept and the C-in-C. But I never had faith in the C-in-C so no change there.

The Bin Laden family was shooed out of the country right after 9/11 while all civilian aircraft were grounded.

And the Saudi student, who has ties to AQ and other terrorist organizations and was a person of interest, is being deported.

I saw that, too, on CNN. They were walking right behind him while he was talking with the Brit lady in the studio.

Bet those anti-gun folk in Watertown and Boston don’t mind seeing “assault rifles” in their streets right now.

We are nurturing vipers in our bosoms with all these Saudi “students” living here.
