Ho-ly. Shit. I’m not going to sit here and write a news story. That’s not what we do. If you were like me and stayed up following the events that unfolded last night, there’s a good chance you still haven’t slept.
That was hands down, one of the most wild nights I can remember. I had the police scanner on for a solid 7+ hours (probably longer, my brain became scrambled), my Twitter feed didn’t have more than 2 new tweets before I refreshed it, and CNN on in the background (which was pretty irrelevant). Here’s where the majority of the action was happening (outside of Cambridge/MIT):
It’s amazing how quick the internet and Twitter can spread news. What was first a ton of speculation after the first reports of the MIT shooting, turned into more accurate information the more everyone followed.
The Boston Police, State Troopers, and FBI did an unbelievable job in such a short amount of time. Look what happens in today’s age. A few blurry pictures spread instantly and a few days later, you’ve got the suspects.
Apparently, the white hat suspect name is Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge and the two
are were brothers. The other was killed by a “blast” and gun shot wounds. It’s said their Russian but have lived here legally for a while.
But enough with those douchenuggets. Let’s remember the officer fatally shot at MIT. Absolutely no reason for it. The guy was probably just doing his normal, average paying, fairly boring job and these fucks take his life from him and his family. Disgusting. This officer may be the biggest hero of all. Who knows what would have happened if he didn’t see them. He may have potentially saved hundreds or thousands of lives.
In addition to the MIT officer, the MBTA Officer (that was shot and, last I heard, in critical condition) as well as any and all other officers hurt in the line of duty. Thoughts and prayers with both of you, your families, and everyone else involved and/or affected.
