Gunshots were reported.Also reported was that "a suspect was down".Don't know if it's the guy they're looking for.

EDIT-According to Reddit,he was hiding in a boat the whole time.Police are gassing him before they move in according to reports.

Many times what isn't covered heavily slips under the radar. Having this happen on United States soil has obviously opened the eyes of many, it's scary to think such terror exists on a regular basis globally.

In this particular case the most eerie part being the facade, though I'm sure his recent absence over a year or so had a lot to do with that. I've been keeping tabs, hopefully they get him alive. If there are any links, elimination no matter how small the percentage is a good thing.

They're gonna kill him. No doubt about it.

I want to hear his motive. And maybe some good could come of it - Americans can wake up and realize these things happen in other parts of the world every week. We barely bat an eyelash when we hear of such bombings on the other side of the world, and no doubt that's where a lot of anti-American sentiment comes from and leads people to kill more innocents.

Yeah. Sounds like a legit False flag. The government is totally behind all this 100%.


Jesus! It's all part of their plan! How can you not see this?

YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH

Oh and it's "wreaking" havoc btw. You're welcome.

Blap. Allow dat.

I honestly want to see the world on my travels, testify. I've got no interest in "The States" though, I'm sure it's beautiful, some of it looks amazing, but the problem with having such a dense population is you find there is an even denser amount of people that are... dense.

Boston Globe wrote:It was clear amid the chaos Friday which was the hometown coffee chain.

On block after block of Boston’s Financial District and Downtown Crossing, Starbucks shops went dark as the city locked down, spurred by a manhunt for the second Marathon bombing suspect. Dunkin’ Donuts stayed open.

Law enforcement officials asked the chain to keep some restaurants open in locked-down communities to provide hot coffee and food to police and other emergency workers, including in Watertown, the focus of the search for the bombing suspect. Dunkin’ is providing its products to them at no charge.

“At the direction of authorities, select Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in the Boston area are open to take care of needs of law enforcement and first responders,” spokeswoman Lindsay Harrington explained via e-mail. “We are encouraging our guests to stay home today and abide by the lock-down, per the governor’s recommendation.”

The stores, however, were serving anyone who came in, whether they were looking for a cup of Joe or a place to charge a phone. In the heart of Boston’s business district, where public transit commuters and travelers became stranded when the T shut down, that was more than a few.

Across from South Station Friday, early morning coffee drinkers watched through the windows of a Dunkin’ Donuts as yellow-jacketed, heavily armed Boston police officers patrolled the area.

And when a smaller-than-normal lunch crowd started hitting the Dunkin’ Donuts on State Street and Broad around noon, the two employees bustling behind the counter just smiled wider in welcome.

Demitrus Glover, the worker who opened the store that morning, said it was a happy accident that he stayed with a friend in the area Thursday night — ensuring he was on State Street Friday, ready with coffee and snacks for anyone who needed them.

Don Foley, a glazier working in the offices at 60 State St., visited the store with co-workers on a break, taking a few minutes outside to sip iced coffee.

They came to work because they had not heard that they should do otherwise before their shifts started. They stayed, Foley said, because, well, why not?

“I’m with this guy here — see those tattoos in his arm? He’s the toughest guy in our local,” Foley joked before becoming a bit more serious. “There’s a lot of police presence. I don’t think anything crazy is going to happen.”

Starbucks, meanwhile, shuttered 64 stores once the city went into lock-down.

“When that lock-down went into effect, all of the stores were closed,” said Starbucks spokeswoman Jaime Riley.

“It was strongly advised that partners and customers who were in the stores remain in the stores.”

The newsreader in that second video is a penis. "How can you explain your sons shooting and throwing explosives at police officers?". Um, complete fabrication, bro. That's what's being reported, but did it happen? Fuck no.
