11:46pm - That helicopter has been hovering for the past half hour now...I can hear it.

I thought it had something to do with the Boston Marathon bombers. An MIT police officer just got shot, less than a mile from my house, according to the Boston Globe:

CAMBRIDGE -- An MIT police officer suffered life-threatening injuries Thursday night and was taken to a hospital, according to a State Police spokesman.

MIT and Cambridge police responded to a report of shots fired about 10:30 p.m. Thursday near Main and Vassar streets, said State Police spokesman Dave Procopio.

Can someone help me understand

why these guys wouldn't keep a low profile?

These news reports say that they robbed a 7/11 with a bomb strapped to their chest.

Did they want to get caught? I mean it sure seems like they are causing a ruckus.

I'm not sure if he was trying to rob 7-11

There was / is a lot of mis info. A lot of this stuff is coming from twitter, and I watched all kinds of rumors develop last night, including who the suspects were. Last night they thought one of the guys was the guy who disappeared from Brown University last month.

The other thing I heard was that he wasn't at 7-11 to rob it. That 7-11 isn't far from his house, so he could have been out for a late night snack or whatever.

His uncle said he was a 'loser' according to an article on Drudge. If that's the case, they're not too bright.

But who knows. At this point, anyone can make up whatever story they want.

No More Phoney Drills (AKA Sting Operations)

I'm tempted to say another FBI sting operation which evidently went terribly awry. If so, then the whole overnight masquerade of identifying the suspects was a charade for public consumption.

Well it was dark and the lighting was kind of bad and they had just mopped the floor and those kids are big and scary and....

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Well, from watching the show

Well, from watching the show Cops I happen to know that all criminals are masterminds worthy of Hollywood fiction! So clearly this must be some kind of grand conspiracy, no true criminal would ever behave in this manner!

I haven't jumped to any conclusions

I'm just asking questions.

I do find it strange that they went from pulling off a somewhat well planned bombing in full view of the public and then a few days later they try to do a common street thug robbery.

Doesn't take a lot of

Doesn't take a lot of planning to put a bomb in a bag and walk into a crowded place and drop it off. If they had planned it well you'd think they would have worn disguises or something. Or even better, bomb an event that isn't in their backyard where there are a gazillion people who know their faces. I think it's pretty clear at this point that these guys weren't rocket scientists and this wasn't planned very well at all.

They planned

it well enough to avoid the police for 4 days and cause them to ask the public for more video footage.

Just sayin'.

ever are but once the media reports it...they become "masterminds".

simple answer, odds are they were flushed out by witnesses and had no choice but to flee. very simple.

Maybe

IIRC a man who lost both legs in the blast was able to identify them.

yep, they were marked men.

I think whether you believe

I think whether you believe it or not it is time to look at all angles. I believe the Alex Jones pictures more than I believe the FBI right now...so sorry. and maybe that is just partly because of how little I trust our gov't and anyone that has anything to do with them. I heard that the 17 year old in the Alex Jones Boston pic's walked into police to say he did not take part in the Boston bomb, yada yada yada they have now cleared him. Now there are reports saying that he was deported back to Saudi Arabia (not sure how true any of this is right now) but given the lies, greed and deceit that we have had to endure right in front of our faces I don't doubt information like that.
So just because the FBI is saying that the original pics that came out (ie Alex Jones pics) are not true, doesn't mean that they are not true. In fact if Obama or any gov't agency says 'X', I'm going to have 1 eye on 'Y'.

aj has become worse then msm.

aj has become worse then msm. I believe nothing the fool says anymore. the guy orgasms off false flag announcements. What has probably happened is the police are covering up the fact they knew about the bombs before hand and had bomb squads out there.

1, why didn't they stop event and evacuate folks, this is the extent of the cover up i think but i DON'T know anything anymore then aj knows.

It's interesting how the

It's interesting how the first set couldn't possibly be the suspects because they are so young, and now the two currently being reported are in the same age group.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

How much money you want to put down

that both suspects end up dead and we never see evidence of that?
Its possible. If I'm wrong I will admit it.

Ok I was wrong

On the second guy but who knows that we ever get much info out of him.

of course its easy to convince everyone of their guilt. they have names you can't pronounce and were muslims. they must have done it.

appalling blogging here

"Suspects identified: Mike Mulugeta & Sunil Tripathi"

The only evidence you have that Mike and Sunil are the suspects is an unconfirmed police scanner recording and some Redditors and you plaster their names on the front of the DP?

This site has hit a new low and the site owner is the perpetrator. Whatever the truth turns out to be, plastering potentially innocent people's names on the front page is as bad as what the NY Post did a couple of days ago with their "Bag Men" cover.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

This may not help them in any way, but it won't harm them either

In fact, public discussions by strangers on the public web about people that the MSM's narrative can otherwise link, past, present, or future, to very serious accusations/charges is a good way to protect their rights.

Because the timeline of accurate information and inaccuracies said about them provides then a record which is NOT from a one-sided source only, for their story.

It might be a good idea to

change the names of the suspects mentioned in the OP.

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

What would you change them to?

Mike Jones?

Folks, the hell we know what is going on in Boston.

Folks, the hell we know what is going on in Boston. I bet this WILL BE replicated all over the place in this country, more and more frequently. Or should I say: more and more REGULARLY?

With or without more gun control, "they" are, ALSO, and anyway, at the same time, desensitizing and conditioning people, in front of overkill, large scale police operations. For BIG POLICE presence.

Be it a genuine attack from blowback effect from US foreign policy or not, the Boston bombing has a perfect candidate/opportunity location to start with: urban, quite big in population.

They're asking people to lock themselves up at home, while BIG POLICE is "securing" or "scanning for national security purposes" the areas for only A COUPLE INDIVIDUALS hiding or on the loose (and that I DON'T deny may be found guilty in the end, but that's not the point here).

Never mind that per your 2nd Amendment right you ALREADY ought to be able to defend yourself AS YOU SEE FIT, staying or moving, against potential individual intruders who are not an entire army coming to you.

IMO, they are mostly testing people's acceptance of BIG POLICE presence - a la martial law times, although not explicited as such, just informal. But in the mere practical facts...

Just use your eyes:

say they repeat this over time, make it progressively longer each time, progressively more spread out each time.

There you have it : Pavlov conditioning to BIG POLICE presence for "exceptional circumstances".

This is mind control. This is fear control. This is obedience control.
