Chris Matthews doesn’t have a tingle up his leg this morning. His desire for the Boston Marathon Bombers to be white Republican Tea Party anti-tax activists has been squelched by reality. MSNBC is reportedly investigating whether the two suspects voted for Mitt Romney in the last election or have links to Ron Paul. They have information that leads them to believe they were members of the Chechnyan Tea Party. The Federal Government is attempting to link them to Iran, so we can get our next pre-emptive war under way. Wall Street and weapons dealer stocks are set to soar today, as war is always good for the economy. Obama is pleased as punch, since the whole country is focused on the Boston Bombers Reality Show, and have foregotten they are unemployed and being screwed by Ben Bernanke and the rest of the oligarchs. Expect this to be the top story for the next month. Three best seller books will be on shelves next week and an Oscar worthy movie should be out by the end of the year. The bodies of the suspects will be buried at sea, and all of their emails and written communications will be sealed for national security reasons. The FBI and DHS will provide the storyline that the sheep are supposed to believe. Stay tuned for further developments.

Boston Suburb, Transit Under Lockdown Following Shootout With One Bombing Suspect, Manhunt For Another, Both From Chechnya

In a series of bizarre if morbid events, things in Boston have gone from bad to surreal. According to Reuters, police killed one suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing during a shootout and were engaged in a house-to-house search for the other on Friday in the Boston suburb of Watertown. The suspects, incidentally, as AP reports, are reportedly brothers and originally from the separatist Russian region of Chechnya, who lived in the US for at least 1 year and were Cambridge residents at the time of the incident.

The night started off in a just as dramatic fashion, with the violence beginning around 10:30 p.m., with the robbery of a 7-11 in nearby Cambridge, authorities said. The two men then fatally shot an MIT campus police officer and carjacked a Mercedes sport-utility vehicle at gunpoint, keeping the vehicle’s owner hostage for about a half-hour, police said. The owner was released at a gas station in Cambridge, authorities said. He wasn’t injured.

Police pursued that car to Watertown, where explosives were thrown from the car at police and gunfire was exchanged, the statement said.

“During the exchange of the gunfire, we believe that one of the suspects was struck and ultimately taken into custody. A second suspect was able to flee from that car and there is an active search going on at this point in time,” Colonel Timothy Alben, superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, told a news conference.

The WSJ adds that a Boston Marathon bombing suspect was killed in a confrontation with police and a manhunt was on for the second suspect—both of whom were believed to be involved in the fatal shooting of an MIT campus police officer during a chaotic series of events Thursday night.

Authorities said the bombing suspect who had been shown wearing a black baseball cap in photographs released Thursday was killed when confronted by police in Watertown, Mass. The second suspect, a light-skinned man with long curly hair and wearing a hoodie who police said was the bombing suspect identified wearing a white hat, was still at large Friday morning. Neither man was identified. Police warned residents that the at-large suspect was armed and dangerous.

An interactive map of the events from the WSJ:

Fast forward to this morning, when authorities warned people in Watertown not to leave their homes and not to answer the door after a night in which a university police officer was killed, a transit police officer was wounded, and the suspects carjacked a vehicle, leading police on a chase.

Police were searching for the man known as Suspect 2 who was photographed wearing a white hat just before the explosions that killed three people and wounded 176. The blasts triggered security scares across the United States and evoked memories of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

The AP reports that the name of the surviving suspect is Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass.

The bombing suspects attacked police with explosives and gunfire before the man known as Suspect 1 was shot, apprehended, and taken to a hospital, where he died, officials said.

Officials shut down area transit systems while the manhunt was under way.

“We believe this to be a terrorist,” said Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis of the bombing suspect still at large. “We believe this to be a man who has come here to kill people. We need to get him in custody.”

The two unidentified men were wanted for Monday’s twin bombings at the Boston Marathon, when two blasts ripped through the crowd near the finish line.

The massive police operation was under way in Watertown after the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on Thursday released pictures and video of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing.

The FBI had enlisted the public’s help in identifying two men wearing backpacks and baseball caps in the crowd minutes before bombs exploded near the finish line.

A photo of the surviving suspect Tsarnaev:

For those confused by the plotline here is the WSJ’s summary:

We have just gotten news that both Harvard and MIT have canceled classes for Friday, and that all Boston transit has been suspended in the manhunt:

 
 

Boston police said on Friday that all transit service by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority “has been suspended until further notice” as a manhunt for a suspect in the bombing of the Boston Marathon was ongoing in a city suburb.

 

Vehicle traffic was also suspended in and out of Watertown, Boston police said.

    A man who lost both his legs in the marathon attack saw one of the bombers drop a bag at his feet, according to his brother, Bloomberg reports.

    An image of a bloodied and ashen Jeff Bauman in a wheelchair was widely published following the attacks.

    His brother, Chris Bauman, said he saw a man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt drop a bag two and half minutes before the bomb exploded.

    Bloomberg said Bauman gave the FBI a description after waking in intensive car.

    “He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, ‘bag, saw the guy, looked right at me,’” it quoted Bauman’s brother saying.

    Here’s a summary of what we know so far:

    • Police have confirmed that they are carrying out an ongoing manhunt for one of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, and have sealed off a 20-block radius of Watertown, a suburb of the city where the suspect is believed to be holed up. The suspect has been named by Boston police as 19 year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev of Cambridge, Massachusetts. He is “considered armed and extremely dangerous”, Colonel Timothy Alben, head of Massachusetts state police, said.

    • Residents across the whole of Boston have been told to stay indoors with their doors locked and only open them to a police officer. All public transport has been shut down in the Massachusetts Bay area. Davis had the following advice for Watertown residents earlier: “Do not open your doors. Stay in your home. We believe this man to be a terrorist and we need to get him into custody.”

    • The other Boston bombing suspect – who the Guardian confirmed was his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev – was fatally injured during a dramatic police chase in which explosive devices were thrown out of a Mercedes SUV that had been car-jacked from MIT. The police have confirmed that in the course of the night one MIT officer was killed and another officer injured.

    • Alben said Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was dressed in a grey, hoodie-type sweatshirt. He was described as a light-skinned, Caucasian male with longer brown curly hair.

    Reports confirm that the Mercedes SUV performed brilliantly during the chase and its top notch stereo system provided excellent musical entertainment right until Tamerlan got shot between the eyes.

    Sales of Mercedes SUVs have reportedly surged overnight in Chechnya.

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, has been identified as the surviving suspect in
    the Boston marathon blast. Currently the subject of a massive manhunt,
    photographs of Tsarnaev appear to match the man who became known as
    “suspect number two” or “the suspect in the white hat”.

    Miriam Elder writes from Moscow:

    According to his account on the Russian social networking site Vkontakte, Tsarnaev graduated from the Cambridge Rindge & Latin School, a Massachusetts high school, in 2011, and attended School No. 1 in Makhachkala, the capital ofDagestan, from 1999 to 2001.

    He appears to have been a good student, having received a a $2,500 scholarship from the city of Cambridge in 2011 to pursue college. He was also named a wrestling all-star at his high school the same year.

    On his VKontakte page, Tsarnaev says he considers “career and money” most important in life. As his worldview, he wrote: “Islam”.

    The page says Tsarnaev speaks English, Russian and Chechen, and belongs to a number of groups devoted to Chechnya. Dagestan, a republic neighbouring Chechnya, maintains a small Chechen minority.

    Tsarnaev was born on 22 July 1993, just before a fierce battle for independence broke out in the republic of Chechnya, attempting to secede from Russia in the wake of the Soviet Union’s collapse. Over time, the independence movement grew increasingly Islamist in character. Largely quashed by Moscow, a low-level insurgency persists in Chechnya and has leaked into neighbouring Dagestan.

    On VKontakte, Tsarnaev follows several pages devoted to Islam. He also lists one of his favorite songs as “Hey Sexy Lady” by Shaggy.

    An acquaintance from high school told Sarah Mahmood that Tsarnaev appeared to be a “very relaxed” person, in contrast to his brother. The acquaintance said Tamerlan Tsarnaev had “said things that made him seem anti-American”, once saying Thanksgiving was haraam (forbidden)

    Killed Chechen Bomber Brother: “I Don’t Have A Single American Friend, I Don’t Understand Them.”

    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 04/19/2013 08:44 -0400

    While the first alleged terrorist bomber, 19 year-old Dhjokar Tsarnaev, born in Kyrgystan, is on the loose currently somewhere in Boston and is the target of a massive manhunt, his brother, 26 year-old, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, born in Russia and legal US resident since 2007, died overnight in a shootout with the local police. It appears he was a boxer, studied at Bunker Hill Community College, was very religious, didn’t drink or smoke, wanted to become an engineer, and his favorite movie was Borat. His YouTube page can be found here: on it can be found videos of Islamic preacher Feiz Mohammad. Most informative is a captioned photo narrative by Johannes Hirn showcasing the older brother’s boxing pursuits and a glimpse into his history and philosophy.

    Miriam Elder has more on Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, who has been identified as the man killed during a massive manhunt launched in the early hours of Friday.

    A YouTube account that appears to have been run by Tsarnaev includes a playlist devoted to “terrorism”, including one video in English titled “The Emergence of Prophecy: The Black Flags from Khorasan. He also maintained a playlist devoted to Islam and one devoted to Timur Mutsuraev, a Chechen singer now in exile who sang of the republic’s battle for freedom from Russia.

    Tsarnaev’s precise background is murky. A teacher at School No. 1 in Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan, said that the Tsarnaev family lived briefly in the republic before moving to the United States. They had previously lived in Kyrgyzstan, in Central Asia, she said.

    Alvi Karimov, a spokesman for Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Chechnya, said that the family had lived in Kazakhstan, which maintains a large Chechen minority. The Tsarnaevs “moved to a different region of the Russian Federation from Chechnya many years ago”, he told the Interfax news agency.

    Tsarnaev appears to have been a competitive boxer, according to a photo report by photographer Johannes Hirn, who photographed Tsarnaev in 2010. Tsarnaev told the photographer that he was born in Chechnya and had been living in the US for five years.

    “I don’t have a single American friend, I don’t understand them,” Tsarnaev said.

    He also appeared to support Chechen independence: “Unless his native Chechnya becomes independent, Tamerlan says he would rather compete for the United States than for Russia,” one caption reads.

    Tsarnaev presents himself as a devout Muslim, saying he had given up drinking and smoking. “I’m very religious,” he said, explaining why he doesn’t take his shirt off while training. The photographs were taken at the Wai Kru Mixed Martial Arts centre in Allston, MA. The report says Tsarnaev was a student at Bunker Hill Community College in Charleston, MA.

    In 2009, Tsarnaev was reportedly arrested for assaulting his girlfriend.

    I can’t stop thinking of the video I saw years ago of Chechnyan soldiers beheading Russian soldiers. They’re a brutal people. And the fact that they moved to one of the ‘stans before coming to the US means an AQ connection is probable. I know everyone here loves a conspiracy, but the fact that there’s no ready-made narrative for this one tells me it’s likely not a government set up.

    In the meantime, the media sure is trying to spin their various angles — they have “assault” weapons, police only have “long guns,” kids had paramilitary training, were “nice, normal” kids before they went off the deep end. It’s all suggesting that, if we could only stop people from getting guns and bomb components, we could avoid this.

    The Associated Press in Makhachkala, Russia, reports the “father of Boston bombing suspect says son is accomplished medical student and ‘a true angel’.”

    1m ago
    WBZ CBS Boston has just broadcast an interview procured by a local station of Maryland with a man, Alvi Tsarni, who said he is an uncle of the suspects.

    Tsarni told the reporter that he had heard about his nephews’ involvement this morning from a sister-in-law. “She was crying and she said that Tamerlan was killed.”

    “I can’t believe this, it’s not possible. My nephews can’t do this,” Tsarni said. “I don’t believe any of my nephews involved in this horrible incident.”

    Tsarni said the brothers, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, “grew up in Kyrgyzstan” and came to the United States “seven or eight years ago.”

    In imperfect English, Tsarni, who said he had lived in the United States for 10 years, said he had not spoken with the brothers for a long time because of “problems family.” Then “yesterday he called me,” Tsarni said – he appeared to be referring to Tamerlan Tsarnaev – “and said ‘forgive me, and we will talk to this now. From now we will be together ever.”

    The reporter told Tsarni she was sorry for his loss.

    “I’m sorry too, if he did this one I’m sorry too. It’s crazy. It’s not possible. I can’t believe it… It’s crazy. It’s unbelievable.

    Tsarni invited reporters to follow him to his brother’s house in Montgomery Village, Maryland.

    I have to agree with TC, but I do not know if the police have much of a choice. I am not a big fan of our police state, but discussing different situations with my nephew, a cop, there are always enough people who want the police to do something/anything that even all out elimination of many rights for some unknown period of time is acceptable to much of the masses. Many of the militant/radical Muslims must be laughing there collective asses off at the massive reaction here in Boston. I can tell you it is all stations radio and TV all the time at present. On the other hand, the police/FBI/DHS live for this frenzy in order to justify their bloated budgets and fancy military hardware. There will be no cutting their budgets this year. I am sure this will greatly encourage our open door immigration party. On the good side I did make it through New York in the CRV last night on the way home from the sunny south without getting gunned down by our para-military police protectors.

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has released the name of a campus officer shot dead last night by the suspects as he sat in his car.

    The officer is Sean Collier, 26 (photo). He had just joined the MIT force in January 2012, the school said. Collier was previously a civilian employee with the Somerville Police Department just north of Boston.

    Separately, a metro transit officer was wounded last night in an altercation involving the bombing suspects. The officer, Richard H. Donahue Jr., 33, is undergoing surgery this morning, WBZ-Boston reported.

    The Guardian’s Adam Gabbatt is in Watertown, Massachusetts, the site of a major law enforcement response which has been unfolding in the last few hours to an unknown incident. Adam reports:

    More than 20 police and emergency vehicles have left the cordoned-off area of Watertown in the last few minutes.

    I am stationed around two blocks away from the home that was apparently the focus of police attention.

    Nearby Arsenal St is lined with scores of police cars for more than a mile on either side of the blocked-off area.

    Within the police area there are still authorities in SWAT gear. A police helicopter is continuing to circle overhead.

    As I write, an ATF fire and explosives vehicle has pulled into the cordoned off police zone. It is not clear what, if anything, the vehicle is being used for.

    WBZ-Boston reporter Lauren Leamanczyk is in Watertown, west of Boston, where she describes a “SWAT situation” in which rings of law enforcement have cordoned off a “two-block area.”

    Police won’t say what the focus of the activity is, she reports.

    There is a very large law enforcement presence at the site, including state police, FBI, military police and local police, with a helicopter flying above, Leamanczyk says.

    “We have heard police on their loudspeakers yelling instructions, asking people to come out,” she says. “We also have seen them evacuating civilians.”

    “At this point they just once again pushed back the media line. They’re saying get back, get back. We’re now being pushed back about two blocks.”

    Police have asked media not to show live pictures of the scene, especially of police positions.

    Watertown is one of multiple communities around Boston that are under lockdown, with residents asked to stay in their homes and all public transport shut down. Other communities include Belmont, Cambridge, Newton and Boston itself. The lockdown situation affects an estimated 1m people.

    The attacks in Boston seem to mark an extraordinary and unprecedented development, reports Luke Harding, former Guardian Moscow correspondent: the first time Chechens have allegedly carried out a deadly attack outside Russia.

    In their long, violent struggle against the Kremlin, Chechen radicals have hit soft targets before. In 2010 two female suicide bombers from Dagestan blew up the Moscow metro, killing at least 40 people and injuring 100. A year later another suicide bomber struck Moscow’s Domodedovo airport; he killed 37 and wounded 180. There have been murderous attacks on a school in Beslan in 2004, where 334 hostages died, most of them children.

    But the bombings of the Boston Marathon, allegedly perpetrated by two Chechen brothers, Dzokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, are something altogether new. It is so far unclear how significant is the trail that appears to lead from the mountains of the North Caucasus – the scene of a simmering ongoing insurgency – to the boulevards and suburban houses of north America.

    After 18 years, two wars, and the loss of hundreds of thousands of civilian lives, the conflict in Chechnya and Russia’s southern backyard more generally has changed. From 1994-96 Boris Yeltsin fought a war against mainly secular Chechen separatists who wanted – like other ethnic republics after the collapse of the USSR – their own nationalist and constitutional state. In the period 1999-2004 Vladimir Putin – Yeltsin’s steely successor – fought a second Chechen war. The aim was to definitively crush Chechen separatism.

    In recent years, however, the Kremlin and its regional proxies have been battling a different kind of enemy. This new generation of insurgents has an explicitly Islamist goal: to create a radical pan-Caucasian emirate ruled by Islamist law, a sort of Afghanistan under the Taliban. The movement’s leader, Doku Umarov, unveiled this ambitious vision in 2007. He vowed to liberate not only Russia’s Muslim North Caucausus but a large chunk of European Russia.

    Umarov also suggested that devout Muslims should think internationally. His comments, later softened, said: “Today in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, and Palestine our brothers are fighting. Everyone who attacks Muslims wherever they are are our enemies, common enemies. Our enemy is not Russia only, but everyone who wages war against Islam and Muslims.”

    This call to global jihad may perhaps offer a possible motive for an attack inside the US. The new generation of twenty-something rebels is also exploiting a powerful new weapon: the internet. The main Chechen rebel website, kavkazcenter.com, posts reports from the jihadi movement worldwide: from Syria, where Chechen diaspora fighters are battling government forces in Aleppo, from Pakistan, and from Turkey.

    Over in the North Caucausus, meanwhile, the Kremlin is carrying out a brutal and rolling counter-insurgency campaign. Its focus is Dagestan, the neighbouring state to Chechnya, and now a hotbed of violent jihadist rebellion. Three weeks ago Umarov appealed to Chechen fighters abroad to come home to take part in the fight.

    Sister Of Bombing Suspects Emerges In West New York

    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 04/19/2013 10:48 -0400

    As the authorities focus on the geographic distribution of what may (or may not) be a delocalized cell, a curious developed has emerged courtesy of NJ.com, which reports that a woman has been found living in “west New York” who has identified the bombing suspects as her brothers. She adds, logically enough, that she can’t believe any of this has happened. She is probably not the only one.

    From NJ.com

    “They were great people. I never would have expected it,” said the woman, of the suspects in Monday’s bombing. “They are smart – I don’t know what’s gotten into them.”

    Through a slight crack in the door of a West New York apartment this morning, a woman answered a few questions. She referred to Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, and his brother Tamerlan, 26, as her own “brothers.”

    She wouldn’t identify herself, but public records listed a woman living there with the same last name as the suspects in the Monday bombings which killed three and injured more than 170.

    But she balked when media asked if she was “okay.”

    “No I’m not okay – no one is okay right now,” she said. “I’m hurt for everyone who has been hurt. I’m sorry for all the people who are hurt and for all the people who lost their lives.”

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed early this morning in a shootout with law enforcement in Massachusetts, authorities say.

    When asked about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev – currently the subject of a massive manhunt in the greater Boston area – the woman had just a few words, in spite of her shock.

    “He’s an amazing child.”

    The younger suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was enrolled at UMass Dartmouth, which has shut down its campus and where friends describe themselves as shocked, the Boston Globe reports:

    On its webpage, the school posted a stark message: “UMass Dartmouth has learned that a person being sought in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing has been identified as a student registered at UMass Dartmouth. The campus is closed. Individuals on campus should shelter in place unless instructed otherwise.”

    In a telephone interview, Pamala Rolon, a UMass Dartmouth senior at and a resident assistant at the Pine Dale dorms, said she knew Dzhokhar Tsarnaev for the past year and finds it incredulous that he played any role in the bombs at the Boston marathon.

    “He studied. We hung out with me and my friends,” she said Friday morning. “I’m in shock.”

    Rolon, 22, said the 300 or so students at the dorm were evacuated this morning by school authorities.

    AWD,
    I have to concur on the new toys. The average suburban police man has the same or better fire power that the average urban SWAT team had 30 years ago. I am not sure that the average American citizen is really that much more dangerous, but I believe that statistically crime is down substantially from 30 tears ago, and it is easy to determine where the majority of the crime comes from. This type of police action should be taking place in parts of Chicago, Los Angeles. and many of our fine urban centers. Unfortunately this will be hailed as a great victory for our police state as the police encourage, no demand that the citizenry cower in there houses while they “save” the public. All I can do is enjoy the show and hope for the best.

    The Associated Press has more from its interview with Anzor Tsarnaev, the father of the suspects, who says “they were set up”:

    Anzor Tsarnaev spoke with The Associated Press by telephone from the southern Russian republic of Dagestan after police said one of his sons, 26-year-old Tamerlan, had been killed in a shootout and the other, Dzhokhar, was being intensely pursued.

    “My son is a true angel,” the elder Tsarnaev said. He said his son was “an intelligent boy” who was studying medicine.

    “We expected him to come on holidays here,” he said.

    “They were set up, they were set up!” he exclaimed. “I saw it on television; they killed my older son Tamerlan.”

    Tsarnaev, badly agitated, gave little more information and ended the call angrily, saying, “Leave me alone, my son’s been killed.”

    The younger Tsarnaev gave few clues as to his inner life on his profile on Vkontakte, a Russian equivalent of Facebook, though he did include websites about Islam among his favorites.

    The family’s origins are in Chechnya, the mostly Muslim Russian republic where separatist rebels fought two full-scale wars with Russian forces since 1994.

    A spokesman for Chechnya’s leader said the family left Chechnya long ago and went to Central Asia, then moved to Dagestan, a Muslim republic adjacent to Chechnya that has been the site of a sporadic insurgency for more than a decade.

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended School No. 1 in Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan. The principal’s secretary at School No. 1, Irina Bandurina, told the AP that Tsarnaev left for the U.S. in March 2002.

    The Guardian’s Matt Williams reports on the impassioned statement just now by Ruslan Tsarni, an uncle of the suspects:

    Tsarni said Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev had “put a shame” not only their family but “the entire Chechen ethnicity.”

    Speaking to reporters outside him home in Montgomery Village, Maryland, Ruslan Tsarni said he called on the younger brother – believed to be still at large – to surrender to police.

    “I say Dzhokhar, if you are alive turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness from the victims, from the injured.”

    Tsarni said of the suspect: “He put a shame on our family, he put a shame on the entire Chechen ethnicity.”

    He added that Chechens were “peaceful people”.

    Tsarni said his family was suffering like those of the victims of Monday’s bombing, but he also asked for their forgiveness. “With the families of those who suffered, we are suffering with them, their grief. I’m ready to kneel in front of them and ask their forgiveness.”

    Killers on the prowl for other killers. The SWAT teams must be all licking their chops and wondering which one will get to take the trophy.

    What if this situation happened in Texas where most of the citizens are armed? Would law enforcement be so overwhelming and intimidating by keeping the people confined and shutting down local transportation?

    Much of the story line does not make much sense. Why would these guys rob a 7-11? If they have been students at the local schools for 10 years where did they get their training for guns and bomb making?

    It seems that the authorities want these guys dead. The American public needs to know the motives of these two so called brothers. Was the bombing an act of revenge and is it connected with our war in Afghanistan, drone killings around the Middle East. Is this blowback coming to this country?

    We are at WAR and there are consequences. Perhaps this is the start of something big? Like the WAR coming to the US? Is that what homeland security is purchasing all those bullets for? In that case the people of Boston are nothing but sitting ducks as most of them have no gun rights.

    Why would these young guys throw their lives away on doing something like this? All we know right now is what we are being told by the media. We have no first hand evidence to tell us why what happened, happened. What is amazing is the scope and range of these cameras that seem to be everywhere and filming everything happening on the street. What is alarming is the interconnectedness of law enforcement these days, sharing jurisdictions and manpower. This shows the magnitude of the police state. And when they take control of a situation like this the people are put into a state of martial law. This is absolute power. This is evidence that we are no longer a free people at least in The Commonwealth of Massachusetts. But then again the people of Massachusetts are probably fine with it.

    Could this happen in Texas?

    How could a jihadist on the run escape if everyone in the community is actively hunting for him? They all know who lives in their neghborhood and who doesn’t. They could all search their own houses and help search their neighbors’ homes in short order and hunt him down.

    But the message from the government is “there’s a wolf on the loose! So all you sheep must stay in your pens and barns and let us authorized professional sheperds and sheep dogs handle it. Be afraid! Don’t try to stop the wolf. We will search your pens one by one till we find him. Till then you can not come out of your pens, or we will punish you.”. Disgusting.

    How far we have fallen into slavery and servile dependence. And how far from being a strong, free people in a free Republic.

    An auto mechanic in Somerville, Massachusetts, told reporters that a “very nervous” Dzhokhar Tsarnaev came to his shop Tuesday, the day after the bombing, to pick up a car he’d dropped off for repairs. TPM reports:

    Gilberto Junior, 44, said that the man, who has been identified as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, appeared to be “very nervous.”

    “He was biting his fingernails, and was shaky,” Junior said.

    Tsarnaev had dropped of the car, which Junior described as a white Mercedes wagon, at the auto shop about two weeks earlier. It had rear bumper damage, and Tsarnaev had said it was his girlfriend’s. On Tuesday, when Tsarnaev suddenly returned, Junior told him the car wasn’t ready.

    “I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care, I need the car right now,” Tsarnaev said, according to Junior.

    The mechanic said Tsarnaev took the car without its rear bumper on.

    Connecticut state police are looking for a new vehicle and have put out an alert, WBZ- Boston reports.

    They’re looking for a 1999 green Honda Civic, Massachusetts plate 116-GC7.

    No further details.

    An earlier search announced by Connecticut police for a Honda CRV, a small SUV, ended without incident when authorities found the vehicle abandoned in Cambridge. Police are searching the car.

    An employee of the sports department of the Boston Globe was good friends with Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the suspect at large.

    The Globe has produced a video of Zolan Kanno-Youngs describing his friend:

    “I knew Dzokhar. He lived two blocks away from me. We were good friends, probably starting from freshman year of high school. I went to Cambridge Rindge Latin school with Dzokhar. We graduated the same year in the class of 2011.

    “I saw the picture last night. Even if thought crossed in the back of my head – it still didn’t ring an alarm, just because it was too blurry. I thought it could never be – and I think that’s a testament to his character.

    “Dzokhar was just a guy with full potential, and never showed any signs of doing this whatsoever. I think that if you ask anybody in Cambridge that truly knew him, and truly hung out with him, this you would know that this is probably the most shocking news we’ve heard in a while…. I can’t even comprehend it still.

    Kanno-Youngs said he tried to contact Tsarnaev because he was worried about a case of mistaken identity.

    “He was one of the more peaceful religious people I know. He never brought up any sort of political views whatsoever. I’m still in shock. I honestly can’t accept it. But I’m gonna have to.”

    Brad Plumer of Wonkblog figures the Boston shutdown, with businesses closed and residents asked to stay indoors, costs the city about $1bn a day:

    So a shutdown costs about $1 billion per day, although analysts tell the Fiscal Times that the effect will likely be similar to that of a major blizzard. That is, some of that economic activity will simply get pushed to a later date. And salaried workers will still get paid. Wage workers, however — particularly low-wage workers — could take a hit.

    It’s a bit of an unprecedented situation. I have yet to find another instance of a U.S. city on lockdown during a manhunt (many Washington, D.C. residents stayed indoors, and a few school districts closed down, during the Beltway sniper attacks in 2002). But it’s yet another hit to a city that has already seen three killed and more than 150 injured in the bombings this week.

    Totally agree with Karl Deninger. The way Boston has reacted (and to a great extent over-reacted) has all but GUARANTEED that there will be more of these bombings. Any terrorist group watching this (and I’m sure they ALL are) is likely recruiting useful idiots for this purpose as we (figuratively) speak.

    The point of these bombings is not to kill some people – its to disrupt and inflict fear in the rest of society. Americans, being by and large little more than trained rats, are happy to scurry and oblige, so long as it doesn’t require them to actually think. Thinking is hard. It’s easier to react, feel and wallow in emotions than to actually think things through.

    Wikianswers says over 1,000 die annually from falling dow their stairs. That makes stairs a hell of lot more dangerous to the average person than Chechens are. But lo, we will now clamour for drones in our skies, more jackboots for DHS, and fewer guns for the law abiding. Fucking idiots.

    “Tamerlan got his American citizenship on September 11, 2012, and is believed to have spent six months of last year abroad, although it’s unclear where.”

    So this guy disappeared for six months last year? Nobody knows where he went? Has anyone checked his passport stamps? Because I can field a real good guess about where he might have been for 6 months……

    Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingusetia. have been mired in violent political gangsterism for the last 20 years.

    And oh by the way, that whole region borders Russia just about 20 down the road from Sochi–you know, the host of next year’s winter Olympics?

    No bus service yesterday.
    No taxi service yesterday.
    No Amtrak service yesterday.

    Grocery stores were closed.

    I called my acupuncturist in Newton, Mass for an appointment yesterday when I came home from Logan airport. She said they were told to stay inside in newton, and not to open her business in Brookline.

    There was some common sense, though. I picked up my bike from the local bike shop where it was being worked on, and they were open, although I was the only customer in the shop.

    The streets were very quiet. Very little traffic. Coming back from the airport, we had to call a friend to pick us up. I’ve never seen the streets so quiet in the day.

    Congratulations, sheep. You’ve been taught to stay in your pens to await the shepherd’s OK to come out.

    I can understand keeping all unnecessary travel to a minimum to allow police cars to move quickly, but shutting down an entire city? What a joke.
