Large amounts of blood, some movement, hostage negotiation team, loud bangs....

I'm guessing he is still alive?

Some reports state that he might be wearing a suicide vest....

Because 1: people heavily overestimate the effectiveness of thermal imaging and 2: it was foggy as Fuck last night/this morning.


Oh yes, spring in Boston.

NBC had some local news guy from Boston say the person in the boat, who is most likely the terrorist, is covered in blood.

Coworker lives less than a mile from the boat. I'm glad they got the guy, I just hope this ends without further bloodshed (other than the douchebag of course). He better not have a fucking bomb or anything. Fucking bastard.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

the news feed or the scanner feed?

the scanner is most likely coming from the helicopter which is open due to communicating to many departments.. it was just found and linked I believe.

Minimal delay on that scanner feed I believe.

I believe that there's an industry standard of a 7 second delay.

The coverage on Reddit puts the cable news channels' attempts to shame. Other than mods censoring specific addresses and tactical locations (fair enough) and the heavy traffic getting onto the site, it just gets right to the damn point with little to no speculation/filler B.S.

I'm watching WCVB an ABC affiliate on my computer.

I thought they'd put program a few seconds worth of delay to prepare for a worse case scenario but then again I've seen some dumb shit televised.

Makes sense that scanner feeds would be running in real time though.

No, they still had the delay, but the production crew were somehow too slow to react. That's why Shep Smith was screaming for them to kill the feed seconds before it actually aired. I hate Faux Newbz as much as anyone, but even I don't think it was intentional.

Listen to scanners for most up to the date information, not news. News is for the post-game report.

I'm looking at news articles and find it odd that the Uncle describes the two as "losers" and an aunt (not sure if it is the wife of the uncle or another aunt) describes them as "angels"

The aunt, a sister and I think both the mom and dad are saying things to the effect of "Impossible" and "conspiracy".

Good news is that as of new he is alive so hopefully he talks.

For what its worth earlier the uncle said he had not heard from them in 2 years.. that the older called him a day or two ago to apologize for tarnishing the name..

No, you get them alive, ask why you did this, are there more people / bombs. Get an answer and he just happens to die from the injuries.

The uncle was more talking, if thy did it they had to be losers.
