If I did anything out of line Diemen is more than welcome to inform me of the act so I don't repeat it. It started Monday when I merely told you you weren't funny for making light of what happened here, and you've been following me around since trying to pick some kind of internet tough guy fight.

Just like you followed me around last year making the same BS joke about me liking every sports team to the point where everyone else started following it?

Yeah, its just so hard to believe two people, who seemed normal in High School going to the prom and being on the wrestling team and such, could turn out to do this without any outside influence.

And its scary since it seems like that could be the case.

I just have never seen anything like it. An entire city shut down and closed off for a teenager. Even after 9/11, people were allowed to eventually take trains out on NYC later in the day. Of course its very different, its just shocking.

Its comforting that they were able to act so swiftly to make sure they dont escape though.

The Toronto Sun (admittedly a rag) has published an interview with the men's aunt who lives in Toronto. She said the older one had a 2-year-old daughter.

yep. And sorry to bring up a Batman reference again, but I just keep thinking of how Bane takes Gotham over. It almost has that kind of feel to it. Freaky...

Something isn't sounding right about this anymore.

What are the latest developments? Just the Black Hawks? Is there negotiating going on or hostage crisis? Is this guy even in Boston or Watertown anymore?

It's been quiet for a while, too long actually.

Whatever pal. I didn't follow you around. I didn't originate the premise about your love for every team and there's plenty of joking and ribbing between the reguar posters in the sports forums, I'm sorry if I offended you. I didn't realize you were that sensitive and took it seriously. Carry on, keep calling me names, do as you like, I'm done with it.

Latest was that a bunch of police up and moved from one area of Watertown to a different area sirens blaring.

They said they have been doing a door to door sweep of the area and have covered 60-70% thus far. Not sure how he could have left the area with so much police/federal presence but anything is possible.

The sister said she hasn't seen them in years.

Something must have happened that changed these two and led them into this. The uncle said:
When asked what spurred the attacks from the two brothers, the uncle responded bluntly.

“Being losers,” he said. “They put a shame on our entire family. On the entire Chechen ethnicity.

“Anything else to do with Islam or religion is a fraud, a fake,” he added. “Somebody radicalized them.”


Being reported that the older brother was outside the US for 6 months a year or two ago...

reddit really is useless, that second guy is looking more suspicious

Here is something he wrote (emphasis added)


Quote:
I pushed B-52 and bombed 'em with the blues with my gear set stubborn on standing
I broke all the rules, strafed my old high school, never once gave thought to landing,
I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said, "Come down," I threw up

She's on CNN right now, from CTV. She said the pictures were staged, by "whoever needs it". She also mentioned something about the two buildings and 9/11. She said something about being a lawyer, having an LLM.

I can't fault these people for being traumatized into irrational thinking.

I have seen it when one's family members can't / don't want to believe horrific news.

Earlier on radio they said the mother was still here in Mass and had been arrested a little while back(last year or 2011, I can't recall) for shoplifting(like $1,600 worth of stuff) in Natick.
I assume authorites have located her, but haven't heard anything further on her.

I just sat down to lunch and flipped on WEEI. Michael Holley read the make/model/plate of the car he may be driving. Then they just updated that to say the car has been found.

I can't believe he hasn't done anything stupid to end up in a car chase or shoot out. That makes me think he's already dead
