Call this an incensitive joke if you want, but how awesome would it be if Batman caught the second suspect?

The Islamist militants in Chechnya are terrorists, no doubt about it, but this is really a very poor description of what happened in Beslan. To this day, dissidents of Putin maintain that the massacre and casualty numbers were a result of Russian action (in the way that they stormed the school indiscriminately, in the failure to secure the scene such that civilians could go in and out, etc.) Very complex and sad story.

I'm not saying they've actually been a part of their war in that area, but I'm fairly certain that's where their motivation is coming from. Does anyone know if they've made trips home in recent months?

You know what they really are, right?

They're Caucasians.

Their family fled Chechnya in the '90s, then to Kyrgyzstan, then to the US in '03 or '04. The younger brother was a considered a great kid in high school.
It is all so crazy.

Don't know if this has been mentioned, but a third suspect is being looked for (or hunted if you will) in Connecticut. This is definitely not a two or three man operation - a lot are in involved.

Supposedly, there's a YouTube video of the suspect explaining why he's a Jihadist.

I think there's conflicting info on this and if so, whether they were mercenaries.

They were talking about that on the radio, I keep missing what they have to say though, getting up and down doing different thing at work.

I just know they were saying something about the possibility they were running to New York via Connecticut?

Supposedly, that's what may be possible.

Also, their father says they're "angels" while their uncle says they "don't deserve to exist on this earth."

I'm following Twitter now, my only chance to follow events in real time while at work. Can't stream NBC at work, obviously and it only buffer over and over.

I'm streaming just music radio at work, they've been good about updating every 10 minutes or so, so it's not distracting me completely.

They didn't have a direct quote of the dad's tweet, but they said it was something along the lines of there will be hell to pay if anything happens to his son?

Heard that too.

Come to think of it, everything is up in the air now and Twitter is not entirely reliable unless it is a confirmed account and/or confirmed reports. Maybe we should stop referring to it.

Just all speculation now. Welcome to the new era of news reporting.
