I don’t think it will.
Acts of terrorism are usually not insurable.
Still, sell it plank by plank on Ebay and make enough to buy five boats.
You are not the only one. But they have had to work with lots of media spotlight. On the one hand, that could help. On the other hand, it is a hindrance. Regardless, I am glad they caught these cowards and hope this is the end of this mess.
I am writing and doing the same. I have to pick and choose mine in California. It is the people that need their minds changed. preaching to the choir is not going to get it done. While I congratulate all the good guys, we cannot loose sight that there were, approximately 20 wounded officers and a couple fatally wounded plus all the wounded and casualties at the marathon. All by 1 man and 1 teenager. I hate to say, but were are not getting a good return on our investment. This is not meant to take anything away from those who risked their lives protecting the public. There just has to be a better way to do it and prevent it.
This has been a great thread!!! I had Fox on, but they were way behind . Thanks to those reporting from the scanner and then the link to the scanner. It was nice to see the crowd give applause to the police as they left.
Now do we await zero to take credit and tell us that we are safe as a country?
No, everything is open on Sunday.
Suspect has two wounds...one in the leg and one in the neck. He’s in pretty bad shape.
The boat is evidence. One likely use would be in the Smithsonian
Two hours of dialog on the news and not once did I hear the word terrorist. Amazing!!
That looked like it hurt.
What the heck gashed his side? I broad ax?
My phone hates me tonight.
No you are not. I feel the same way. And if these type of minds do not fear death, then this sets up a very worrisome precedent.
Should have been, but I read that it was made at the hospital when they tried to get his heart pumping again. Maybe they did heart massage.
I feel so bad for him. /sarc
The physicians probably had a hard time locating the heart, given it’s the size of a walnut.
Of course now Deval Patrick has to get on screen. How long before Bambi shows his face? Now that this has been wrapped up, Bambi can go play golf this weekend.
Thank you!! I'll remember that.
I’m watching the press conference. Is Mayor Mennino in a wheelchair, sitting down, or is he that short?
Sequestration hits again.
Hey, we class of ‘98 have to look out for each other, we’re a dying (LITERALLY!) breed on here ya know.
When you went to the site, did it just start playing a live video feed without you doing anything? I thought maybe there's a button I'm not seeing. Just wondering.
Media seems in damage control mode declaring the Boston perps as HOME GROWN TERRORISTS, not part of AQ of Saudi Arabia. This week Saudi officials made their cover very clear with Obama. Chechens are extremely close to Saudi Wahhabis.
Still listening to the scanner, someone alerted all officers patrolling around Waterton Square to be careful, there are suspected somethings—then the damn commercial came on and I missed the rest. Anyone catch what they’re worried about there?
Too bad he doesn’t look more like his brother.
They’d be wise to have STRONG security at the hospital.
From many reports, Chechen Jihadis are some nasty pieces of work and if there are more members of the cell they might well go and try to kill a bunch of people at the hospital to try to get to this guy or just inflict damage.
Black suitcase in the middle of the street in Cambridge.
Yes, we are! lol!
Could set up a fundraiser online and he would have enough to buy a yacht in a few hours.
On the scanner call for officers to help set up a perimeter at Washburn and Franklin streets, FBI is doing something at that location. Not sure what’s happening though.
Police are clearing Franklin street, they’re blocking all traffic, pedestrian and vehicle, down that street. Still no idea why.
we could start by flattening Chechnya. Air assets only. No boots on the ground.
More rubble, less trouble.
I understand it’s a rare 1980 boat.
Do you mind posting a link to what you're listening to?
"By the time police were getting ready to make a move, at least 260,000 people were listening to the police scanner live. About 2.32 million viewers were listening in on Ustream.tv. At about 8 p.m. ET, police could be heard saying on the scanner: "We also have a problem with your downlink. It's being broadcast on the Internet."
Never mind. I reinstalled adobe flash and accepted the ustream cookie. One or both of those actions fixed it.
We’re Freepers, after all. :D
Can anyone tell me what brand/model scanner that was? My uniden base is too hard to program trunking stations.
