Here's the Helicopter footage of #2...Thermal cam and I believe you can see at least one flashbang go off.
Great clip. Thanks for posting.
Interesting. Thanks for posting this.
Yes thanks for posting. It’s amazing how much heat we give off.
Hard to hide from the thermal imagery.
I hope the guy’s boat gets fixed.
You are welcome.
Note: I’m not sure how to edit my title...I typed D instead of closing the parantheses.
While using the thermal imaging via the helicopter, there was much concern among law enforcement as to where the perp was in the boat: "Subject is on the fence side of the boat... head toward the back of the boat... Is he moving? We have movement: subject is moving his arms and legs... he just sat up for a few seconds... How many flash bangs do we use...?". The police were also concerned how much fuel they had left in the helicopter, etc.
Thanks so much for posting this interesting clip, Kaosinla.
I wonder, given his injuries, how he got into the boat without being seen. At this point it doesn’t really matter. We know the outcome :)
I was hoping they would back a truck up, hitch up the boat trailer and take the thing for a nice little joy ride somewhere
He is going to need a bigger boat.
There’s a movement going on to buy the owner a new boat...it’s a fiberglass hull worth $30-$50k. Relatives say it was his pride and joy.
“I hope the guys boat gets fixed.”
Are you kidding? That 20K tub is now a Million dollar collectors item.
It may be worth a million , but at the Pawn Stars Shop, Pops will only give hm $150.00
You could bring the Shroud of Turin in to Pawn Stars and the wil claim it’s really only worth 50 bucks.
We should start a fund to replace his boat.
I’m in if anyone starts a fund raiser ....
You have already contributed to the damage reparation fund - alas, your money will not be spent where it was claimed to be collected for.
A local Coast Guard official referred to his search crews as “Water Nazis” because of their wanton destruction. Supposedly, the damage was paid for, but he said it rarely happened and even more rarely covered all the damage.
Private repair of the boat should be left to the locals, as one was quoted as saying “We are educated, successful and wealthy. We can afford the best police and sleep well without guns. Go fu*k your cousin.” Exact wording may be slightly off, but the context is accurately reproduced.
Let that ‘wealthy’ Liberal local, her family & her friends pay for their neighbor’s boat damage.
News last night says there is a facebook effort to raise funds to buy him a new boat
Here is a question I haven’t heard any reporter ask (which I guess is no big surprise as they are all more concerned with political slant than getting the facts); since the perp shows up so clearly in the thermal scan of the boat, and the police were searching that area the whole day on foot and by helicopter; how come a helicopter didn’t spot the perps thermal image previous to the homeowner calling in that there was blood on his boat?
The government shot it full of holes, the government's insurer owes him a new boat. Although this one might have some value to someone, so it could collect a large sum of money.
“It may be worth a million , but at the Pawn Stars Shop, Pops will only give hm $150.00”
Well, I don’t know. Rick is going to have to spend quite a bit on repair and then there is storage fees. And then, you don’t even know if it will sell and they may have to sit on it a while.
I read on a different forum that it’s all because of the useless “lockdown.” All of Boston was ordered to shelter in place, which some people might have even understood meant to stay away from windows - in which case it would have been easy to get into the boat without being seen. But when the lockdown was called off, this particular homeowner walked outside and noticed an open shed door and that his tarp was torn and partially open, so he called police. Lockdowns might well be useful for prisons, but not schools or cities. They’re useful for police states, though. Like when all the land is a prison. Good thing Boston has strict gun control - otherwise someone might have gotten hurt in all of this.
I’d like to hear the phone conversation when they guy calls his insurance agent..
I heard that the helos weren’t flying earlier because the cloud cover was very low..
>>He is going to need a bigger boat.<<
Ok...you get post of the day award.
Thanks for the ping. Very interesting.
Second place goes to: "This was no boating accident!"
Then I lost the connection to the scanner feed.
When I got it back, I heard talk about "pulling your teams out" and "why not let 'em finish." All of which led me to believe they had him. The 6 PM press conference proved me wrong.
I continued to listen to the scanner and heard cops lamenting the loss of Federal teams around the perimeter, everyone was melting away. It was real depressing. Then a little after 7 PM, the situation got 'hot' again.
What was up with that "we got 'white hat' guy' transmission? Could they have located him at 5 PM but couldn't reach him and needed a feint like the press conference to flush him out?
They meant they knew where he was, not that he was captured. They were desperate to get him alive because he has valuable intel.
I live in Boston and I saw Coast Guard helicopters flying back and forth over my neighborhood throughout the day. Why they were looking in my area is a mystery as it is about 7 miles from Watertown. The weather was overcast with breaking sun on Friday. Ceiling was not low.
It is evidence.
It might go in the Smithsonian one day
Thank you for the ping!!
Then why the press account that the police were shot at but ‘did not return fire’?? So did the FBI fill the boat with bullet holes and these are just weasal words? I really don’t care other than questioning the official line that no-one fired on the boat. Obviously that is a blatant lie, but why?
That’s what I think. If true, it seems the press conference was a fake-out, including a lot of what was said on the scanner.
“It is evidence.”
It is still private property and must be returned to it’s owner after the trial.
Me, too. It stinks to have a hole in the water to pour money into when it won’t keep the water from filling up the hole ...
