This is horrible. Boston does not need anymore nonsense right now.

Also, the contradictory title and text in the first article is irritating (though they just fixed it. It originally said "Officer Shot Dead"). I can understand making some mistakes, but seriously, one that big? Do writers not double-check their shit anymore?
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

Yeah, MSNBC is reporting dead now

Caffeine is my sacrament

I do NOT have a dubious relationship to sleep. We had a perfectly ambicable seperation

Ask me about the knife in your back!

When I die, they should process my blood into an energy drink - it'll be called Vampiric, and one dose will cause diabetes... Also, you might see noises.

http://emergency.mit.edu/ for once 4chan provides a good link -- it'll be faster than the news reports

Crap, I'm hearing something about explosives and more gunshots.

Edit: I'm hearing they got them surrounded by retreating a safe distance away. EOD has been called in.

Edit 2: Gawker says 1 suspect in custody, another going to the hospital.

Jossed by the MIT website, but confirmed by the explosions in Watertown -- it was a town/county over.

Ah great, Gawker says one suspect still at large. Also that this incident is unrelated to the marathon bombers. And the plot thickens.

According to Gawker, the one guy the had in custody had no connection to the crime, and was released.

So which crime? We have a shooting and a carjacking. Was this some sort of fluke?
