Creepy Boston lockdown.

The photo-op.

If you'd shown me those pictures a quarter century ago and told me that's what Boston will look like after a terrorist attack, I would have thought: Oh, my God! The neutron bomb!

In the end, it will turn out that the real motive was to spice up the kid's resume for when the next adjunct professor spot opened up at Columbia.

Any excuse for a paid day off.....

Red Sox game postponed do to manhunt.

That's got to be a first in over 100 years.

The Drill SGT said...

I've seen pictures like that, close to you. Green Bay just after kick-off, with sage brush tumbling down empty streets....

bagoh20 said...

I think we've gone a little bit overboard here.

How many people will be killed in U.S. cities tonight? They won't even shut down the blocks where it happens, yet the shooter will be loose in the neighborhood. Something ain't right somewhere.

jacksonjay said...


Thank God the Interfaith Pep Rally was yesterday!

furious_a said...

chr*st, it looks like the London of 28 Days Later.

Given what happened in LA during the Dorner manhunt, and the number of police deployed here, it's as much to prevent accidental shootings by police as to make the manhunt easier.

Jay said...

The Bruins and Red Sox games are cancelled too.

Land of the Free, Home of the Brave...

Jay said...

Since this kid was in a gun battle with police and likely injured, I'm guessing he's dead.

Which makes this all the more absurd.

Lem said...

An abundance of caution becomes an over-abundance.

G Joubert said...

It makes the manhunt aspect of it seem strange.

Neutron Bomb

"It fits in a suitcase. So small.

No one knows it's there, until blammo!

Eyes melt, skin explodes, everybody dead.

It's so immoral, working on the thing can drive you mad.

That's what happened to this friend of mine."

Total overreaction to look for a 19 year old kid.

I don't see how Mumbles & Co. are going to cover their rear ends for this.

n.n said...

Americans have become a cowed people. Perhaps that's a consequence of civilization or of relentless efforts to denigrate individual dignity and devalue human life, and for profit, no less. The men are more timid than the women, suggesting that there is an identity crisis.

Oh, well. That's to be expected when "adults" are treated as children.

Michael K said...

The Chechens seem to be good at terrorism. They sure did a good job at Beslan. The Russians have always thought of them as criminals and gangsters. If I had been a Russian I would have let them o long ago but I'm not as uptight as Putin.

Michael K said...

Let them GO. Sorry

Michelle Dulak Thomson said...

Hagar,

Total overreaction to look for a 19 year old kid.

It strikes me as overreaction, yes. But there is no such thing as a "19 year old kid." He's just as capable of killing you as any other adult, and not a juvenile any more.

AllenS said...

The reason that the Bruins and Red Sox games are cancelled, is because everyone's afraid that the cops will shoot someone just out trying to enjoy themselves. This is what happens when the old hippies who rallied against the man and government eventually gets control. The new order.

John Kerry is Sec of State. Obama is President. Hillary the Bitch Clinton was part of government. BJ Clinton who once said that he hated the military is also to blame.

Michael K said...

By the way, both brothers were registered to vote, according to Nexis. I wonder who they voted for last November ?

I predict a surge in births in about 9 months.

I know what you're thinking, but don't say it right-to-lifers.

Lem said...

Fair to draw a parallel with Obamacare?

Budget busting, bankrupting abundance of caution at one end and death panels at the other.

ALP said...

I wonder how many people would voluntarily stay home in this situation? Our little city of Lakewood, WA was caught up in a manhunt after Maurice Clemmons shot and killed 4 police officers in a coffee shop about 5 miles from my home. Even walking out of your house to stand on your front porch - you can sense something in the air. If you don't have on the go internet - you stay home glued to your TV or computer. There was no request from law enforcement to stay home - but when I did wander out about a day later (Clemmons still on the loose but we had run out of COFFEE) - Lakewood was oddly vacant: streets and parking lots empty, stores have a few dazed folks wandering around. I can't imagine something on this scale. What would the air be like - the weight of the tension?

edutcher said...

Baaston is supposedly the intellectual capital of Lefty America, run by the Lefties, and this is what they want the country to be.

Sieg Heil.

AllenS said...

Lem, the death panels are on the street, armed with high magazine clips in assault weapons. Unless you're about to be born, then you might get the sizzors to the neck.

Lem said...

Government doesn't know how to strike the right balance on much of anything.

EDH said...

Actually, what it reminds me of is the area "in the grip of fear" during the manhunt for Albert DeSalvo, the "Boston Strangler", both when he was on the loose and after he escaped the prison mental hospital 46 years ago.

Calypso Facto said...

The sheep are safely in their pens for the day.

A Boston Baby Boom.

The pictures remind me of the empty skies in the days immediately following September 11, 2001.

AllenS said...

Actual births, or partial births?

Freeman Hunt said...

Huh? People agreed to this?

Hagar said...

Michelle,

Quite so, and Boston probably have at least a couple of hundred equally dangerous individuals loose on the streets at any one time.

Bruins and Sox postponed, Jay. Not cancelled. There is a difference.

Bruins will more than likely play tomorrow mid day. The NHL is working with both Pitt and Buffalo to move things around so tomorrow's game will be played tonight.

But still--it's way beyond stupid IMO.

EDH said...

I think the concern is he has a suicide vest or similar explosive device and would wade into a crowd to take hostages in order to facilitate his escape, or that there may be fellow cell members who would use another bomb attack to create a distraction from the pursuit.

CEO-MMP said...

Ings is channeling Cedarford.

Jay said...

Well, people have dug into the Twitter account of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and shock of shock, he's an Obama fan.

I'm sure MSNBC is all over this...

President-Mom-Jeans said...

The chatter on the left is sickening. I have been reading a lot of Daily Kos and have seen the progression from "It was those awful Teabagging wingnuts" to "well they aren't dark skinned, so CNN is racist" to "this isn't terrorism, its just a local crime."

All of this while my city is still under lockdown due to violent Islamic terrorists on a killing spree.

There is no common ground to be had with the political left wing in this country. NONE.

Fuck them all. There should be no engagement, no conceding of a single inch on any issue, they should be mocked mercilessly and utterly marginalized politically.

Jay said...

CEO-MMP,

Yes, postponed. But, if this guy isn't found by tomorrow, I doubt there will be a Bruins game in the afternoon.

It would also call into doubt the Celtics playoff game. My how the NBA would not want to move that...

Lem said...

Huh? People agreed to this?

I don't think they asked.

CEO-MMP said...

Indeed, PMJ, indeed.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Maybe it's a little bit of overkill with the lockdown, but I am okay with an abundance of caution. It's one day, things can be postponed.

If its just the one guy, well maybe that's overkill. If he has some of his Islamic cockucker buddies ready to start detonations, well then you can't be too cautious.

Nobody in Boston is complaining about any restrictions or a "police state."

bagoh20 said...

There is no way in hell this would happen in L.A.. Then again, a Caucasian can't just hide in the crowd here. But seriously, around here, "ain't nobody got time for dat!"

CEO-MMP said...

Celtics open in MSG anyway, Jay.

Jay said...

Sens Graham & McCain are out saying we need immigration reform so we can know who comes in and out of the country.

That's nice.

What would the air be like

Clear and smog free. I'll bet CO2 emissions are down too. The utopian future is being tested and it is a success. We should thank the brothers for the experience.

Darrell said...

Hemorrhoids.

I'm just surprised they didn't lock us down out here in Western Mass. That's what happens when Boston gets a snowstorm. (Even before the Deval! Era.)

CEO-MMP said...

shooting for another briefing around 5:30.
Have bomb dogs sniffing out the area now.

B said...

He's not a kid. Martin Richards was a kid.

They won't even shut down the blocks where it happens, yet the shooter will be loose in the neighborhood.

This isn't a shooter. This is a guy that has demonstrated the capability of mass murder in a single act. His brother tossed another pressure cooker bomb at the police last night that only malfunctioned because the lid sprang off. There were also completed and fused pipe bombs found in his apartment. The safe and reasonable assumption is that if he is still alive he has both a firearm and explosives.

If he is still alive they want him on the move so he can be located and isolated and hopefully do this away from any place another or more explosives would catch a lot of people in the open. For all those reasons, clear the damn streets and keep them clear.

Chip Ahoy said...

This is totally ember assing. I mean, embarrassing.

So have you seen the Family Guy episode that kind of predicted the bombing?

Pretty weird coincidence. They pulled the episode at most sites, but here's the pertinent clip. Spooky.

chickelit said...

Big media went to sleep last night for a couple hours. I followed the goings on Twitter. The local media faced it bravely.

Right now, the city of Boston looks asleep, showing how little it takes to cow them. But they--somehow--will get beyond this.

France, 1915:

The sputter of shrapnel, the red squeal of field guns, N.E.; the growl of the heavies moving slowly through the air, the cr-r-r-r-ump of their explosion. But in a bombardment all tones mingle and their voice is like machinery running not smoothly but roughly, pantingly, angrily, wildly making shows of peace and wholeness.

You perceive, too, in imagination, men infinitely small, running, affrighted rabbits, from the upheaval of the shells, nerve-wracked, deafened; clinging to earth, hiding eyes, whispering 'O God, O God!' You perceive, too, other men, sweaty, brown, infinitely small also, moving guns, feeding the belching monster, grimly, quietly pleased.

But with eyes looking over this land of innumerable eruptions, you see no line. The land is inhuman.

But thousands of men are there; men who are below ground, men who have little bodies but immense brains. And the men facing West are saying, 'This is an attack, they will attack when this hell's over,' and they go on saying this to themselves continually.
~ Ivar Campbell (1891-1916)

edutcher said...

Inga said...

Hmmm, I sense a ripple in the force. Feds overreact, police state. Practice for the " real" thing? Afterall he's just a 19 year old kid (dad even called him an angel).

He's your Messiah and she's your pinup girl.

This is why they have the 2700 MRAPs. This is the way they want to run things.

This is Bloomie writ large.

You wanted it, don't make noises like you're bitching about it now.

"For all those reasons, clear the damn streets and keep them clear."

For how long? Say he climbed through a basement window or is hiding in a warehouse, and they don't find him for 2 days, 5 days, a month. He could've shot himself and be dead behind a dumpster somewhere. With everyone inside, they won't find him till he rots. If they actually know what part of town he's in, it makes no sense to shut down the whole town.

As for shooter or bomber, he could kill more people now with a semiauto than a small bomb. He has no way of getting into a crowd now. Imagine if instead of the bomb at the marathon, he just opened up with an AK-47. Probably many more dead.

Inga said...

A post on Volokh tried to address the civil liberties hazards of this, but seems like the thread was quickly sidetracked.

If it's voluntary, then what, exactly, is supposed to happen to people who decline to participate in the lockdown? If it isn't, then under what authority are LEOs ordering citizens to remain in their home?

It seemed like overkill this morning and it'll soon cross the line into absurdity. Law enforcement is acting like the entire city of Boston is a giant elementary school.

The saddest thing about the lockdown is it was warm today. Total Tanky weather.

Amen, brother.

And by the way, this kid was a pretty good high school wrestler. If he's even half in shape, he can run five miles in about a half hour without too much difficulty.

How long did it take to get the "lockdown" of Watertown in place?

Watertown is four square miles with a population of about 32,000 people, plus lots of businesses. How long will it take to search each building? What are the chances that they could search the building and miss him?

This could go on for quite a while.

Eustace Chilke said...

I heard a pundit lamenting all the indirect damage done by shutting down all economic activity for a whole day in Boston and expressing astonishment that two feckless criminal youths could shut the entire city down so easily.


Except they didn't. Our own authorities did that. This part of the damage is mostly not discussed. A bomb goes off, people are hurt and more are frightened and the damage spreads in a sort of auto-immune reaction. Starting with the police, all the authorities get excited and active and do things like shut a whole city down followed by curtailing freedom and increasing surveilance and generally becoming more and more of an intrusive burden and even a danger to the vast majority of the nation who not only have nothing to do with the problem (except tolerating a government with a hand in dirty business all around the world) but will never be effected directly by anyone involved.


The boatlaods of money, the militarized police indistinct from soldiers in all but name, the lost liberty, all the manefstations of the burgeoning and productively inert security state: All this we do to ourselves and all of it adds to the damage done by two small time murderers. I heard a pundit refer to the National Guard as police. The National Guard are not police!

The mindless veneration of all things military and the automatic acceptance that wherever and whatever we choose to use military force for is always for the good and that the motives of people who are provoked to retaliate are inscrutable or amount to (laughably) jealousy of our (rapidly disappearing) freedom has to be questioned. As of yet these assumptions are still piously regarded as unshakeable verities by most opinion makers. The more so after an attack.


No wonder we continue doing so much of the terrorists work for them by damaging ourselves in the aftermath. If I was one of them I would count on it.

Cedarford said...

CEO-MMP said...

==================
Why? What has he done in real terms other than issue paeons to Victimhood, and Hero Government Employees Who Keep Us All Safe?

Or was it because he played a good host to Obama sweeping in to whore up his Personal Involvement in another tragedy to serve his own agenda and show Black Messiah truly cares?
Or did Menino with his mighty words - give a scared and witness pack of mere citizens new courage to get up in the morning and live their lives fruitfully if confined to their homes??

Inga said...

I find that the murmurings of sympathy for the 19 year old bomber seem to be more prevalent than Trayvon Martin, as Cedarford alluded to.

virgil xenophon said...

It would be no small, delicious savage irony if the 2nd bomber is killed while invading a citizens home by a home-owner with an "illegal" gun. LOL

I don't sympathize with the fugitive but I do think the information put out seems to indicate that the older brother was very much the leader in this. It brings to mind, for me, not Trayvon Martin but the Beltway sniper kid.

The only reason it's important is that the authorities should take the psychological profile into account on tryong to predict what the kid does next.

CEO-MMP said...

No, Cedarford, it was a good humored response to Jay's post about the confidence Menino wasn't inspiring.

If you had to listen to that moron on the news every day, you'd understand what I meant.

I left the TV on all day just for yucks. The lead up to this seems great police work. What has happened since verges on TSA airport kabuki theatre.

That said, I do hope I'm wrong.

Inga, you best speak the truth when you are trying to be ironic. Ironic, that.

Sounds like titus is about going to his domestic affairs as only a good wife does.

Who would have thought indeed...

Hang in there titus.

You know what they say when they hand you lemons.

Homeland Security update

A student of the nefarious dark crafts of improvising explosive devices but a master at improvising disguises, including the Joker, and a cute little American boy, experts at Homeland Security remind us he could be anything so be on the lookout whilst cowering at home and if you see anything suspicious inside there with all the lights on full blast and not answering the door unless you know for sure it is the police, then report it.

Lockdown lifted.

The guy is dead, or walking the streets crying and feeling sorry for himself.
Most likely broke and out of ammo. His leader and hero older brothers' death will have taken all his strength.
If he is alive, he is trying to work up the courage to turn himself in, or to kill himself, if he has a bullet left.
He doesn't have the street smarts of the most basic common criminal.

Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide

Or a surge in abortions in about 3 months. Take your pick. About even money these days.

Meh, probably a little of both.

Coketown said...

I guess I need photos of Boston on a typical day for reference. All those photos look like Boise at 11 AM on any given day.

I'm more struck by the uniform use of whatever Instagram filter that is. Probably makes the scene looks far more ominous than it otherwise is.

But yes, neutron bomb. Or rapture. Cities look odd without people decorating them.

CEO-MMP said...

Hey Grandpa Mark--he ran his brother over in his rush to escape. So yeah...it's just taking all his strength.

The dude planted bombs that killed and maimed dozens. He shot a cop. He carjacked someone and told him yeah we're the bombers, we killed a cop earlier and we'll kill you.

Yeah.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Shots fired in watertown.

I think something may have just happened.

oneredquilt said...

I've been watching this all last night and today. I can't believe all the misinformation the so called professional news organization keep putting out. Among others, the most stupid is their disbelief that he could have "gotten away by foot after the gun battle". Well, he didn't.

In fact, the police themselves told the reporters that the suspect got behind the steering wheel after his brother got shot, ran over his brother's body and then drove off. The police were probably not in their cars, were still taking cover, and tending to the wounded. He then had somewhat of a lead and by the time they followed, found his car and set up a perimeter, he had too much of a lead and time to get away. Nobody seems to remember that he drove away after the gunfight. They probably set the perimeter around the area that they found the car.

Hope they find him quick.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Unconfirmed report that the second suspect is down.

Inga said...
I do not drink alcohol, I drink coffee, sometimes I do take ice in my coffee, thanks.

What? No more Mt Gay Rum or Spotted Cow? You disappoint.

chickelit said...

Unconfirmed report that the second suspect is down.

That would explain the lift....

CEO-MMP said...

cops are smiling.

Chip Ahoy said...

Are his legs still on?

Inga said...

Chickelit, no alas, my stomach issues can't handle it. :(

President-Mom-Jeans said...

Hope they can keep the fuck alive.

Glad they found him though.

CEO-MMP said...

Yep, I'm thinking the got him, they're gathering and all laughing, they look like hunters admiring a buck.

Cedarford said...

CEO-MMP Christ. You're in more dire need of a blow job than any white man in history.

Unfortunately for you:

1. I'm not gay.
2. You have to come up with
a better gay pickup line in your
chatrooms than
'you sound like a white guy in need of a BJ'.

CEO-MMP said...

C4, it's a line from Good Morning Vietnam.

Get over yourself, you stinking rotten neo nazi piece of shit.

creeley23 said...

Apparently he's down in a boat trailer and they're sending in a robot to check for bombs.

CEO-MMP said...

chicklit that happened about 15 minutes ago. The stay home order was lifted an hour or so ago (and replaced with a stay home suggestion...)...

kentuckyliz said...

I hope the boat is OK.

If I were that woman...would I call the police, knowing they're going to shoot up my boat?

Not sure.

I love boats.

Michael K said...

If I were the cop who found him, he chances of him being alive are slim. The brother had a suicide vest and ran to the cops and blew himself up.

Cops like to go home after the shift.

CEO-MMP said...

MSNBC was crushed by CNN during the past few days. Apparently most Americans realize MSNBC is nothing more than the mouth on Barry's jeans.

That's false.

Holes can be patched. Bombs are hard on boats.

Inga said...

I want follow just what these two wanted to prove with all of this? Is Al Qaida now using Chechnya to stage their jihad?

CEO-MMP said...

Yes, Inga, AQ is in Chechnya.

Cedarford said...

News is reporting 20-30 shots fired.

Hmmmm....
Only 20-30?

"The poor misguided child" appears to have gotten off lightly, as cop-killers go.

kentuckyliz said...

Breaking news: the 2nd suspect is down on the street prolly incapacitated.

I'm On A Boat MotherFucker

Inga said...

It's no surprise they are in Chechnya, but it is a surprise that they have such influence over Chechens, being European. I worked with many Bosnian Muslims, not radicalized one bit, they ate pork and drank alcohol, and were not religious.

creeley23 said...

There's no boat. He's apparently hiding under the canvas which covers the frame of a trailer for towing a boat. He's alive.

It's a wealthy neighborhood.

Original Mike said...

"Yes, Inga, AQ is in Chechnya."

Have been for a long time. But you'd have to watch Fox News to know that.

JAL said...

Suspect in boat is moving -- Amazing -- how many gazillion police officers do they have there?

Apparently LEO fired on the boat without knowing who was in it ... chances are it's the #2 guy.

CEO-MMP said...

Oh Inga. You make my head hurt.

Sorun said...

Man, that's quite a cop traffic jam there in Watertown. Even saw a guy with a DEA jacket standing around. Probably because the perp is thought to smoke dope. They'll get him on a drug charge if nothing else.

Cedarford said...

================
Methinks he protesteth a bit too much. Likely the poor little gay Jewish boy doesn't fare well even with a lifted movie line trying to get hookups...."Hey, you look like a white guy in dire need of a BJ."

Try something else.
Or are you "queering up the deal" by asking for money at the same time?

CEO-MMP said...

Sure looks like a boat.
Canvas covered trailers don't keep the shape of the bow of the boat.

CWJ said...

Is anyone watching the live feed? I stopped counting the cop cars after I got to 3 dozen. Also watching the ATF paramilitary types marching around, I'm sorry but after Waco wouldn't you think they would want to look a little less like the SA? Why the hell are they there in a "point" position in the first place?

JAL said...

Inga - AQ has been in Chechnya since *1995*

Get with the program.

They have been training the Chechnyans specifically to attack European "western" targets.

CEO-MMP said...

LOL C4. You pull the "methinks he protests too much" thing out of your ass...but where have I protested anything? I simply clarified that it's a line from a movie.

All else--is shit you're pulling from your diseased brain. Or your ass. Same thing.

JAL said...

Breslan. Moscow movie theater. And something not too long ago with 31 killed a bunch injured. The Chechnyan Islamists (NOT ALL Chechnyans, obviously) have that mentality.

One wonders who the #1 brother spent his 6 months with back in Chechnya last year.

creeley23 said...

I was looking at an overhead photo of the empty trailer.

Tim said...

CEO-MMP said...

"Oh Inga. You make my head hurt."

Cripes.

Easy fix.

By-pass without contact.

Life is simpler.

Speaking of by-passing, the Boston cops appear to be the world's worst shots since the NYPD cops shot all those rounds in Manhattan a few years ago without hitting their target.

CEO-MMP said...

Yeah creeley. There are two different overhead views and they both look like a covered boat to me. Not to you though. LOL.

Who knows, right?

CWJ said...

Inga, Bosnia is Not chechnya. They're close to 1,000 miles apart. Give the Bosnians credit for not being Chechyans. And stop looking at superficial physical resemblances rather than history and culture.

JAL said...

CEO -- the big bus pulled up and the LEO number is official: 1 gazillion 2.

CEO-MMP said...

Inga is a bigot and a soft racist.

"Oh, all muslims are the same...no matter where they live..."

BaltoHvar said...

FOX 25 is reporting he's down after b/casting the shots audio just fired.

Seems it is a standoff, and rightfully so since he likely has a Vest that would take out anyone close enough. He's going to wait it out, they'll remain backed off and then he'll blow...

Inga said...

CWJ, no kidding. That is exactly what I was doing. Chechens cannot be compared to Afghanies that welcomed Al Qaida. The uncle became incensed when a reporter made reference to Chechnya and Muslim extremism.

creeley23 said...

But non-radicalized Muslims can be radicalized and there's no telling who or when, while non-radicalized Muslims, with some exceptions, do little to stop them.

Jihad is built into Islam. Not all Muslims become jihadists, but until Islam is seriously reformed it will remain a dangerous, violent religion.

After 9-11 Muslims worldwide polled their approval of Bin Laden's leadership from 10-70% depending on the country.

CEO-MMP said...

Looks like the ATF guys are moving in.


Multiple witnesses are telling WCVB that it's him, he's moving, they took off part of the tarp and they're just watching him.

Big Mike said...

Can someone explain what lockdowns are supposed to accomplish? At Sandy Hook Elementary all they did was collect and bottle up kids for Lanza to murder.

CEO-MMP said...

More loud noises...sounded like a shot to me but the news says explosion.

Now they're saying multiple pops.

Yep, more shots.
