That was my first thought also and I know I am cranky today.
That’s about as ominous as it gets......
Tweets based on Mass. State Police dispatch say a 60ish man with a device holding a ‘dead man’s switch’ is on the ground. Who knows what’s true right now...
They can if it is not random. If they have reason to believe the guy is inside and is going to commit a crime they can bust in. It's called exigent circumstances. It has always been legal.
This is Islamic terrorism executed by Chechens.
MAJOR FAIL by OBAMA, HOLDER and BIG SIS.
The media will deflect and cover for them as directed.
world view: Islam
I'm sure if the killer had been a member of the Tea Party they wouldn't mention it either.../s
You’re oh so right (unfortunately)!
But, they’re very quick to blame the right-wing, GOP, etc., etc. Here’s a post I included on another thread earlier today:
From this thread: CNN Reminds Viewers You Can’t Blame Any Group For ‘Extremists’
Ill bet CNN would have sing quite a different tune if it turns out the terrorists had any connection to tea party, or Palin, or any of the right wing connection.
Absolutely! CNN and others came out of the gate blaming whites, conservatives, the GOP, etc. Here are just some I found on FR:

New York Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof Links Boston Explosion to GOP, Others Pile On

Never let a tragedy go to waste. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on Monday quickly used the explosions in Boston for political gain, linking the Republican Party to the horrific act. At 4:10pm, Kristof tweeted, explosion is a reminder that ATF needs a director. Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking apptment.
Sharptons Radio Producer Tweets Speculation That Anti-Gov Group Behind Boston Marathon Bombings

At 3:38 p.m. Eastern, Huffington Post blogger and Al Sharpton radio producer Nida Khan speculated on Twitter that an anti-government group may be responsible for the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon. We dont know anything yet of course, but it is tax day & my first thought was all these anti-gov groups, but who knows, tweeted Khan, who immediately received a lot of blowback on Twitter for politicizing the tragedy. But rather than back down, Khan defended her speculation in subsequent tweets

Esquires Charles P. Pierce wrote in an online post on the magazines website that we should not jump to conclusions and blame foreign terrorists, then blames it on right-wing domestic terrorists. He stated remember that this is the official Patriots Day holiday in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord, and that the actual date (April 19) was of some significance to, among other people, Tim McVeigh, because he fancied himself a waterer of the tree of liberty and the like.

Chris Matthews: Did Boston Bombing Have Anything To Do With Tax Day?
By Noel Sheppard | April 15, 2013 | 18:46
As NewsBusters reported earlier, MSNBCs Chris Matthews seems hell-bent on trying to blame the Boston Marathon bombing on a domestic terrorist, preferrably a conservative one.
After saying shortly into his Hardball program, Normally domestic terrorists, people, tend to be on the far right, Matthews later asked his guests if Tax Day had something to do with the event since it doesnt mean a whole lot to the Arab world or Islamic world or the, certainly not to al Qaeda (video follows with transcript):
Axelrod: Obama thinks Boston bombings could be related to tax day

Posted on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 7:24:03 AM by Windy City Conservative
In explaining why President Obama didnt call the Boston bombings a terrorist attack, former adviser David Axelrod said, Im sure what was going through the presidents mind is we really dont know who did this it was tax day:
The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11, Axelrod said of the phrase terrorist attack.
You use those words and it means something very specific in peoples mind. And Im sure what was going through the presidents mind is we really dont know who did this it was tax day. Was it someone who was proyou know, you just dont know. And so I think his attitude is, lets not put any inference into this, lets just make clear that were going to get the people responsible.
Lets just let the Left keep talking and hoping Boston will go away, because it wont

The hysterical screeching has already started. The Left is drawn to blame a terrorist attack on American soil on conservatives like a moth is drawn to a flame. Theyre psychopaths who only care about moving their destructive agenda forward. Liberals will say anything; they cant do otherwise. Theyre not bound by any restrictions of common human decency because they have none.
Despicable cancers such as Chris Matthews, Michael Moore and lunatic Cynthia McKinney have already started accusing conservatives of this ugly attack. Let them keep talking.
Either the Boston Police or the media are lying about whether...

Hoyer: Republican Sequester Caused the Boston Marathon Deaths

Democrats, including Hoyer, today blamed the Boston Marathon bombings on the Republicans. According to them, the Republican Sequester so damaged our intelligence community that it caused the Marathon bombers to get away with it.
Took then just 24 hours to blame conservatives for the lives and limbs lost. I am no fan of the Democrats, but this lowers the level of their loathsomeness to a new bottom.

Let’s hope the Senators and Congressfelons debating about our immigration policies are paying attention to what these Chechen Muslime immigrants are doing. BTW I saw that neither is a US citizen, and that both are registered to vote (probably DemocRAT, though I didn’t see info on party registration).
This family, from what has been reported, was admitted to this country AFTER 9/11.
Listening to this on police scanner it is a 60 year old man with deadman switch
Right! FOX said the Dunkin Donuts had employees there even though businesses were told not to open. The manager saw all those LEO’s and determined his retirement was assured.
scanner asking chopper to elevate.
Sounds like EOD(explosive ordnance disposal) unit has shown up.. and officers are getting back to perimeter.
OUCH, that will leave a mark!
We can hope but I doubt the wishes will come true.
It is “impossible” to be registered to vote without being a US Citizen... ha. What a flippin’ joke we are.
I wish this whole mess would blow up in o’stoner’s face.
Wow! But has Dzhokar slipped the dragnet?
MSLSD still wondering how to classify this: foreign or domestic terrorism.
Dudes, don’t take the brown acid!
14.50 (09.50) Larry Aaronson, a teacher at Ringe and Latin school, says not only did he know Dzhokhar, but he took photographs of him on the wrestling team. He writes on Facebook: Quote I cannot believe he was capable of such a heinous crime and of so many murders. Truth be told he came from the war zone deep inside Chechnya like about 5 or 6 years ago... with his entire family... When I was quoting that the war has come home yesterday to everyone, I did not mean it like this!!!! As the old hebrew expression goes. You got to be f****** kidding me... (BUT THEY ARE NOT)
15.49 (10.49) A photograph of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev wrestling has been posted on Twitter.
16.04 (11.04) Dzhokhar Tsarnaev at his graduation from Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School
15.04 (10.04) The identity and photograph of the MIT police officer has been released. He is Sean Collier, 26, of Somerville.
14.47 (09.47) Ruslan Tsarni, the brothers' uncle, said that he received a call from Tamerlan last night having not spoken to him for a couple of years, in which he asked for forgiveness.

They are going to use the robot to try to remove the guys jacket.
Of course we wonder if we will ever find out what this means.
Intrigue only begat intrigue but I wonder if this is really just the edge of a terrorist cell that has gone rogue or made a passion inspired mistake by launching the bombing?
My wish is that it is and that it blows the whole immigration reform and amnesty mess all to hell.
In Europe they say that the only aspect of Islam that the resident Muslims care about is oppression of women. They will drink, skip prayers, etc, etc, but the "laws" regarding women they insist upon.
How do you do that with a dead man switch?
Prayers for police.

If not on swat team get away.
Excellent rollup of the facts, SC. Thank you!
This is getting scarier and scarier...
they just said on the scanner the 60 year old definitely has a device in his hand ?
Scanner: Everyone near 36 Boilston (sp?) move away.
or in hot pursuit.
WRKO best besides FR. Guy is on ground.
And meanwhile the attention of everyone has been taken off the white hat guy.. for good reason.. but still.
True...I thought I heard them asking for addresses of all family members? Anyone else hear that?

The suspects are brothers with the last name Tsarnaez, law enforcement officials told NBC News. The suspect on the loose is 19 and has a Massachusetts drivers license, they said. Law enforcement officials told NBC News that both men had international ties, had been in the United States about a year and had military experience.
We know they came from Chechnya and wait for it.....Muslim
Tamerlan says he doesn’t drink or smoke anymore: “God said no alcohol.” A muslim, he says: “There are no values anymore,” and worries that “people can’t control themselves.”
He was also a fan of al-Qaeda:
Here’s another little tidbit - It’s rather ironic to me that their mom was arrested for shoplifting at Lord & Taylor last year and from what I’ve heard, it may have been the cameras outside of L & T’s in Boston that gave the police at least some of the best videos/pictures of the guys.

The Mother Of The Boston Bombing Suspects Was Arrested For Shoplifting Last Year
A woman believed to be the mother of Boston bombing suspects Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev was arrested last year for shoplifting at a Cambridge Lord & Taylor department store, according to a police briefing in the Natick Patch.
Here’s the June 13, 2012 report from the Natick Police:
7:42 p.m.: Loss prevention from Lord & Taylorcalled to report they had detained a shoplifter. Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva, 45, of 410 Norfolk St., Apt. 3, Cambridge, was arrested and charged with larceny over $250 (women’s clothing valued at $1,624), and two counts of malicious/wanton damage/defacement to property.
Tsarnaeva shared an address with the two brothers suspected in the Boston Marathon bombings. The first bombing suspect, Temerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was shot and killed by Boston police Thursday night. A manhunt is underway for the second suspect, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19.
Robot is on him now....
The home page says he was at Cambridge Ringe and Latin School in the 2011 school year, and that in 1999-2001 he attended School No. 1 in Makhachkala, the capital of the Russian republic of Dagestan, on the coast of the Caspian.
He lists his World View as Islam and his Personal Priority as Career and money.
He is a member of two groups in VKontakte for Chechens, and three of his five noteworthy pages are Islamic-themed.
The latest post on the account uploaded on March 19 - is a video called The bro did good and features a young man sitting in the back of a car and smiling as he mimics several different accents from the Caucasus region, and recounts stereotypes about each ethnic group.
Tsarnaev adds his own joke about three nations of Russias North Caucasus, all plagued by crime and Islamist violence.
In school they give a riddle A car is driving. A Dagestani, a Chechen and an Ingush are sitting in it. Question: Whos driving? Maga [Magomed] replies: The police.
A video expressing sympathy with rebels fighting in Syria, and a clip of a Kuwaiti sheikh talking to a blind boy who memorised the Koran also feature on Tsarnayevs VKontakte page.
Abusive messages from other users began to appear on the page in both English and Russian on Friday.
16.11 (11.11) Apparently seven miles of air space have been shut. Police helicopter still in the air.
16.08 (11.08) A woman understood to be the mother of the Tsarnaevs was arrested last year for shoplifting at Lord & Taylor, the same department store that was cited earlier this week as having helped in the investigation to identify them thanks to their CCTV footage.
A woman was also pictured being escorted out of the Tsarnaevs' house earlier today - her identity was unclear but she was older.
Members of the FBI, State Police, Boston Police, Cambridge Police and other law enforcement agencies take away a woman near the home of suspect 2 on Norfolk Street to talk to her
I did not hear that. Did they ever even enter the house they supposed surrounded overnight?
Bomb squad is still trying to ‘clear’ the older guy on the ground. This is the guy who is holding the deadman switch, but this is NOT the main perp-Suspect #2.
Worst he can do now is blow himself up and maybe the bomb robot. It could be an electric razor - who knows if the guy is a nut or what?
UMASS Dartmouth is being evacuated. They searched the bombers apartment this morning and I’m wondering if they found info. that the initial plan was to use all the bombs on campus but their plans went off the rail.
We need these cats taken alive if they can, this cell seems bigger than a 2 man squad.
In Cambridge? LOL They have ballots translated into more than 20 languages.
I agree about ‘this cell seems bigger than a 2 man squad’.
Sounds like they’re finally able to put their “urban warfare” training to good use.
This will be a good opportunity to watch their tactics....just sayin.
