Mike, I'm chiming in because I live an hour from this insanity. I have countless friends and family in the lockdown area.

Should the event not be discussed? Or, are you referring to the frivolous attitude toward death that some are taking? If its the latter, I'm with you.

My family IS Cambridge FD. My uncle is the chief. We are all concerned.

Edit; Rick, STFU with partisan bullsh#t. You are nice and safe in Reno, my family is right in the thick of it, many are first responders.

Big Mike,

There is zero sarcasm in this post... Writing from eastern MA.

The events of today and the last night are staggering -- you may not be hearing what's going on real time; it appears that these 2 guys (and more are suspected) were the Boston Marathon perp's from what's happening.

They (I'm putting the brothers together here) held up a convenience store wearing IED, stole a car via kidnap, shot and killed a 26 YOA MIT Policeman, were trying to get rid of more bombs out of the car as chase was on, and more. One brother has been killed, the younger one holed up somewhere.

City is on total shutdown -- no "T"/subway, taxis shut down, everything. Hunts appear to be taking place in different N.E. states and NY state.

All subject to final verification, of course -- real time stuff is fuzzy. Craziness!!

Take care, man--

Oh, Rick, left wing, right wing, religious, political, you hate mongers are all the same to me. Hate has become your central value. It's all you see or know.

the suspects' uncle was just interviewed. He pretty much summed it up:

religion and politics had nothing to do with it, they were just a pair of losers

Well Jessus, before i got on ST i considered myself middle of the road. But after expressing what i considered common sense ideas and being attacked by hateful rants i've come to expect this hate mongering primarily from those who consider themselves as enthusiastic progressives.

You don't have to justify your hateful attitude to me. You're the same as a Hedge to me, consumed by your rhetoric. There is no difference between you extremists since you'd both get your jollies off destruction and mayhem like vultures in your game of political point counting. You should be proud of how extremely right you are!

Kinda funny how things are this am on this thread eh Rick!

Now,, if it HAD been a couple of Idahoans,, we would now be seeing a non stop attack on white "merkns" the like rarely seen. We would be called names of all manners and insulted post after post.

To bad.. We were right...

i went all right ring
this morning on my cup of coffee.

it was just standing there,
but i attacked it like it was trying to get away.
im not talking sippy sips of coffee,
im talking aggressive gulps that probably
instilled terror in the ground-up scent
of the wee, innocent beans.

He escaped while surrounded by alert police force?! They must have let him go to see who he's associated with, hopefully...

Yeah i hear you Randisi,my questions could be misinterpreted as inflammatory if one group or another never considers themselves as being capable of being even the slightest bit wrong. This event seems to be something all americans can collectively mourn and come together in realizing that there are deep cultural problems in this country that can't be solved by pointing fingers in one direction or another. These young men seem to be loners, perhaps influenced by the culture of violence worship that pervades all mediums with exposure to our children from an early age.

Many members of my family have gone to Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, the same as the suspect.

This sh#t really hits home.

Edit; we posted at the same time. Thanks, Lila.

Brandon, please express my family's gratitude, also centered in the Boston area and sprinkled all over NE, to those in your circle and their colleagues, for their bravery and for putting their lives on the line to protect those of us in this area.

This is an incredibly dangerous, ongoing situation...and very real to many of us.

I would ask that some of the folks throwing around hate and sweeping generalizations about ethinic, religious and other populations try to realize that this hate is squarely hitting some of their fellow climbers (and members of this forum) right in the chest.
