It was actually just a security guard at MIT, not a police officer.... not to say that that lessens the severity of the crime, though...

reddit has gone down when they were reporting the story

We had to briefly remove the emergency.mit.edu link due to traffic issues, (it is used by the MIT community when emergencies occur).

Apparently the Boston Police Commissioner said that himself, on twitter. A Police Commissioner on twitter? Doesn't seem right somehow.

Agreed...and perhaps you can explain how someone adding new information to a topic under discussion is not "correcting" or pointing out "weak links"... its actually discussion, which is what this board is about...

I suspect you two had little more then crossed wires as to why the links were posted. It appears you've both cleared that issue up now though so we can move back to the topic at hand.

FBI on scene . MIT police officer is dead,and a transit cop has been critically injured .
I am hearing one suspect was originally in custody . How we went from in custody to dead,is anyone's guess.
Unexploded devices are on the scene ,and are being disarmed .

Suspect number two ,with the white cap ,is on the loose. Suspect number one,with the dark cap,is dead.
FBI has shown other images of the two,face close ups .
The fugitive suspect was seen at a seven eleven earlier yesterday,in a grey hoodie .
As far as I can tell,they were not MIT students,but don't quote me. Details of where they found them ,are fuzzy ,but it started in Cambridge,and ended in Watertown mass .

Some residents had bullets come into their homes,and they heard exploding bombs .

I made the other thread,because the two arguing just did nothing for the topic.
