Major Manhunt underway in Boston - getting crazier.

The two suspects who were identified as being responsible for the shooting also robbed a 7-11 store last night near MIT in Cambridge, shot an MIT police officer to death, who was sitting in a cruiser, then car jacked a mercedes SUV. They held the driver hostage for 20 minutes and released him unharmed, but did tell the driver that they are the bombers. The police found the SUV and killed one of the bombers. The dead bomber was wearing an IUD device, they believe the other bomber is wearing one as well.

The other bomber rammed a road block with the SUV and is on the run. One neighborhood in Watertown is currently in a state of lockdown and the authorities are searching house to house and evactuating residents from every house as they go. Most of the College and Universities are closed.

They just announced that mass transit to and from the city, as well as in the city itself have shut down. They are also asking several towns to stay indoors, basically half of Boston is effected by that request.

There is also a Twitter rumor that there are 3 people are trapped in a cab which has a trunk full of explosives.

the arrogance of ignorance is getting the **** kicked out of it by reason.

er ... in the case of the first dead bomber, ignorance is getting run over, literally, by cop car

edit: news now reporting the older dead bomber was run over by his younger brother. solidarity succumbs as well.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Let's keep this nonpolitical, so I don't have to move it elsewhere. Just a heads up.

I know this is a serious thread, but an IUD is not what you think it is, I fear. Either that or the dead bomber is a bigger ***** than I thought.

Well, as much as I loathe these two. It's remarkable how efficient they have been in terrorizing on a budget.

For the price of a couple of pressure cookers and some hardware, and by running around Boston, causing transportation to be halted and locking down several cities, I think they have gotten a greater visceral effect than previous bomb-toting a**holes.

Sadly, they have laid out a new template.

Almost the definition of asymmetrical warfare.

I'm sure there be a lot of information/misinformation in the upcoming weeks, but this kind of reminds me a little of the DC sniper a while back.
A couple of "lone wolves" kept the DC area terrorized for several weeks.

Lack of coffee. An IUD would be of less concern.

Also read that the younger brother ran over his dead or mortally wounded older brother in the stolen SUV during his escape.

My Dad moved from Watertown (a couple blocks from the big shootout) to Waltham (next town out) a few years ago. He was still under lockdown/SWAT patrol but not getting the door to door Stalingrad street fighting like whoever bought his previous house was.

Boston is a great party city. It's Friday. The suspect has been captured. The lockdown is over. This is going to be an epic party night.

They got the wrong guy. This one is a fisherman injured by a fish while he was fishing on his boat.
Here is what happened.

When he heard fishes talking to him : "come out with your hands up".
He refused saying: " No way! According to my fishing rod, fishes don't talk!"

He then threw a fish to a police officer.
But the police officer being a vegetarian threw the fish back saying: "sorry, i don't eat fish!"
And then, the fish hit the fisherman and injured him.
That's the whole story.
