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...

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.

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.

+10 to what Lila says. Nothing productive in attacking entire cultures or individuals for that matter. As our president so eloquently said, lets finish the race. Events like this can either make us stronger our destroy us, it is or choice.

My sister in Somerville told me that their 3rd floor tenant heard the commotion last night when he went out on his balcony. They all stayed home today, crazy times there, hope all the first responders are okay, really sad that a cop was killed.

Where are all of our left wing ST haters? Are they having difficulties spinning this into a right wing plot? I can see they could have some trouble since these young dudes were foreign born and from an area where terrorism is the way of life, but come on surely they can let loose with at least a hateful wimper.


So nice that the rednecks from Wasilla, home of Sarah, where you can see Russia, could join us!




To bad.. We were right...

"Too" spelled incorrectly. Let's see, a couple of Muslim dudes, living in the USA, legally, for many years. Radical Islam is considered far right.
Radical Muslims legally in the states for many years makes it homegrown.

We were all right! Sheesh, give me a break.

In times like these it helps to remember that people say things on message boards that are flippant and not thought out. A form of venting. Most of these folks are people you would enjoy knowing in real life.

Rick is a good guy. I'd expect that all of you currently squabbling at this moment would in other circumstance truly enjoy each others company.

Try not to let these bombers have another victory here on supertopo.

Lets be kind in each post from here out as we have friends here and now who themselves or their loved ones are in a possible line of fire.

Let us use this to learn how to be stronger and better. It's how we win.

they are announcing a controlled explosion will be done at a house in Cambidge, due to dangers there. Boston LEOs are on it.
