Watertown & MA State Police Told ABC 2 Weeks Ago There Were No Writings In Boat-Now They Are Afraid To Talk

Spokespeople for the Massachusetts State Police and the Watertown police had denied the existence of the writings when first asked about them by ABC News two weeks ago.

Today, both departments referred reporters to the FBI. A federal law enforcement official confirmed reports first broadcast by CBS News that writings had been discovered inside the boat.

The discovery of writings intensified tensions between the FBI and local police when FBI agents believed some Boston officers and state police had taken cell phone pictures of the writing.

Agents demanded the phones of all officers at the scene the night of the capture of Dzhokhar be confiscated to avoid the photos becoming public before being used as evidence at trial, according to two law enforcement officials.

A FBI spokesperson said agents cannot confiscate phones without a warrant and officials said none of the police approached would agree to turn over their phones to the FBI.

what lie?

"caught in a lie", where am I lying? To whom? Over what?

Skippy, reading your comments I picture an overexcited guppy. Calm down. I'm really not out to get anyone. That said:

Do you think everyone comes here to hear about your latest dramatic inability to comprehend reality?

If I were told by a mod my actions were getting onerous, I would certainly not go around and tell everyone a hyberbolic misinterpretation of what happened. That might annoy them further.

Are you going to accept you don't get a say in things that aren't your business, and that the vast majority of the people here don't want to hear your latest drama, or are you going to keep making exaggerated posts about it and waste peoples' time?

Oh Please

I can't believe Michael would leave someone as childish acting as you in charge of such an important liberty site. I can't HELP but ask myself and others here that REALLY care about DP "What the hell is going on here?" Once again I have to ask, "Who the hell are You and What Have You Done With Jon"????????????????? or better yet, MICHAEL? How come DP has changed so much since the Boston BS?

exactly what mbengal has said is the case


So please answer my last question above. It's very important.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?


you, delysid, and "josh wishes he was Really from Arizona" and a couple of others are a little niche that help each other out on a regular basis. WHATEVER.


Ha, I love it.

I'm supposedly lying about living in Arizona?

Who on God's green Earth would want to pretend to live in Arizona?

Sure, It's a place I've grown to love, but If I were going to make believe to live somewhere I would probably pick somewhere more exotic and somewhere that actually had water and was less likely to kill me via a heat related illness.

If I were going to pretend to live somewhere Phoenix would not be my first choice, probably Los Angeles, or San Diego, or perhaps Miami, or maybe even Seattle.

that doesn't answer the question at all

are you going to calm down and move on or not?

Never mind, answered.

If y'all get this post deleted because of comments, can Ralph

re-post it? This is a good story.

Musicians, Please Note For Me

Jon just told me to shut the hell up or I would be banned. People here that are aware of the takeover or whatever is happening on DP need to cover each other's backs. Hope you can see this before it's deleted because there is a lot of that going on here. I don't think there was this much banning in Nazi Germany! What has happened to Daily PAUL!?


Oh I know Skippy.

Oh I know Skippy. Best to just leave it alone for the moment.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Leave It Alone? Why?

I care about DP. I help support the site with my money. I have thought that maybe I should just say, "oh screw it, I am out of here, but I think that is what "they" want us to do so NO, I am not leaving. I am going to fight for this site. Leave it alone? I CAN'T leave it alone and I WON'T. I will fight to save it even if everyone here thinks I am nuts. Everyone thinks we are all nuts anyway. I hope others here will fight too but we are being deleted right and left.


You have to choose your battles.

Clearly here and now are not good. I'm not saying you should leave or that what's gone on is ok. I'm just saying leave it a lone for the moment. And I understand that you're upset and your current personal situation is very rough. But I think you need to accept that the weather is not good at the moment.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

THIS is my battle

Leave it alone for the moment? WHY? It seems that THIS is the time to NOT leave it alone. At least until I am banned. I CAN'T because I think it's WRONG. Am I alone in this thought? No, because when I DO shut up about it, I see everyone else keep it going. How can I bow out when I keep seeing everyone else here keeping it up? IT'S NOT ME. IT'S DP!


I Never Agree With Anything You Post

so I don't care what you say here. BUT, I just hope other people here see this and realize how childish and immature your comment makes you look. Instead of trying to debate, you choose to act like a child and insult. That is also what I see several people that are not happy with me doing. Isn't that what those that don't really have arguments do? Insult, threaten and such instead of debate?


Oh, brave Skippy...

once your great moral crusade ends in your tragic banishment and your martyrdom is secured, we shall construct a magnificent statue in your honor.

It shall be of the "Roasted Honey Nut" and "SuperChunk" variety, to reflect your nuttier qualities.

He's got you there Josh.

I think this comment was uncalled for

Michael left very specific instructions as to what content he DID NOT want to have on HIS website. This content of this post was not part of those instructions.
I wish people would respect Micheal's requests and stop blaming the mods.

Who Should We Blame Then?

Don't blame the mods? Okay, did Michael leave instructions to 403 anything and everything that the "mods" disagreed with no matter what the subject matter? Tell us who we should blame for the absolute and endless 403's then?


Well If I were to take a wild guess...

I would have to say, the people that continued to ignore the request of the site owner to not post "Boston victims are actors" BS, are at fault for their threads being 403'd because they failed to heed the warnings.

This site is not your property and you do not have a right to be here.

"The State is a gang of thieves writ large." - Murray Rothbard

It's not just that

even threads that have zero to do with the 'actors' stuff were/are getting deleted. I came across two examples just today, and prior to today I held a similar opinion to yours.

I understand mods deleting threads that do nothing but whine about the DP/members/cliques on it, but it's gone even further than that. I don't know if it's being overly cautious, mollycoddling (as one member put it), or just a garden variety power trip (seen that plenty of times when I ran a site a few years back). Or maybe it's just some petty BS/misunderstanding that's getting blown out of proportion.

(Hopefully) everyone here understands that this site is private property, but there's a difference between going by the site owner's word, and forever invoking it as the go-to justification for x y and z, especially when x y and z aren't even being done by the site owner.

In any event, I'm just going to wait until the whole thing blows over.

I thought the same at first, too

I initially thought that the only threads being 403'd were of the "staged actors/fake bombs/limbs/blood" variety, but more and more often even threads that have nothing to do with Boston at all are being 403'd simply because of who happened to post them.

Like Skippy d said, even a thread suggesting that fishyculture be made a mod was 403'd, and it had almost 30 upvotes when I saw it (403'd by the time I logged in to comment).

I get why the Boston thing may have hit close to home for Michael-- I'm a native Bostonian myself, but I don't recall him saying (at least not to my knowledge) that he wanted certain people to be targeted, which is what this is starting to look like from my perspective.

If the mods were really so focused on banning hoaxes and debunked theories, then why not 403 the stupid reptilian threads or the "miracle" cures? Those threads stay, while threads that merely ask a question or praise another member gets deleted (a member who openly criticized the recent 'leadership' around here, nonetheless).

Seems inconsistent, to say the least.

Thank You! Jon Has Threatened to Ban Me

If I don't tow the line. WHAT LINE? Now he is telling me he's sorry. No way I am buying that crap. He told me to shut up or get out. You decide what to make of that. Has anyone here ever heard me do or say ANYTHING that deserves being banned? Jon is on a power trip or perhaps Jon isn't even Jon. Whatever, there is something terribly wrong here and I have gotten caught up in it through no wish of my own. I am simply trying to keep things honest. What is this hateful opposition to Fishyculture? I love her posts and find them quite fruitful so what gives with the animosity to her and anyone that likes her posts? I had several threads deleted other than that for no reason as well that weren't about Boston. Why exactly is Boston so taboo anyway? I find it weird that Obama on mars is okay but boston isn't. Is it just me?


He's asking you to tow lines?

He's asking you to tow lines? That's slavery!! Jon out!!

PS: Its 'toe the line'. See how that makes sense? You know? Keep your toes behind the line in the sand? Toe the line?

I Stand Corrected

I used to know that about "toe" but I have slept since. MANY TIMES! Thanks for the reminder. Toe the line. Oopppppps.



Michael didn't tell Jon to go around banning posts for no reason. That is what has been happening here if you are paying attention. I had posts banned for thinking Fishy should be a mod and she had a post banned for gripping about my post about her being banned and so on and so on and JUST now I was told by Jon to shut the f up or get out for bitching about his banning everything. He even deletes stuff that incriminates him and I can't even tell if it IS jon anymore.


I'm just offering a warning

I'm just offering a warning to Ralph, posting the message that popped up when I clicked a thread, and making an observation.

Things really have gone off the rails if someone finds that disrespectful and uncalled for.

When is Michael due back? Anyone know?

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

I Don't Understand

where you are coming from. You are trying to warn Ralph but you tell me to leave it alone. You see what is happening so why do you think we should back off? You KNOW things aren't right. Please take a stand here. I think you already have though if truth be told. Wasn't it you that thought I was exaggerating at one time? Funny, I never thought there would be an infowar on DP. I was wrong.


No, I did not accuse you of

No, I did not accuse you of exaggerating. As I already posted, you need to leave it a lone for awhile. You clearly have a target on your back and there's not much any of us can do if it goes too far right now.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Okay Thanks

I believe you but I really hope you will keep posting about this crap that you see happening here. That's all I mean. Please don't take my meaning wrong. I thank you for pointing stuff out. Sorry if I came across the wrong way. Meant no offense. Hang in there Okay?


It's all good. Best to stay

It's all good.

Best to stay close to home during a hail storm if you know what I mean.
