"No movement in the boat"

"We got the cover(s) half off".

CP is "requesting". (Dunno what that means). Request was acknowledged but not answered directly.

Sounds like the commander is in the helicopter.

They are holding off opening fire as there are children still in the house at the end of Birch Street.

For a lone terrorist, the survivor of a huge pair of same, he's certainly making a huge PD look like they are struggling.

Not very impressive to an outsider looking in.

Thank Goodness most terrs are this good. If the terrs ever get really good at what they 'do'......trouble.

Helicopter has lost sight of the perp/boat.

Helicopter confirms no movement of the perp on the boat. Plan is to fully remove the covers and let the guys on the building(s) do the shooting downwards.

"All units be aware if we get the top off that boat, be aware of cross-fire situations".
They sound well panicked.
Well-panicked?

I don't think you know what the definition of the word panic is.

But I'm sure everyone is in a state of heightened alert. After all, up and above the shooting there were bombs at the race, bombs thrown at the police during the chase and gunfight to include pipe bombs and one similar to the ones at the race, bombs strapped to the dead suspect, and a bunch of bombs found in the suspects' apartment when it was searched. In other words, bombs bombs bombs. The police, understandably, may be concerned that the remaining suspect just might have more than a gun.

The good chance that the suspect might have a bomb Im sure has the effect of keeping everyone on their toes.

What is HRT?

They are "deconflicting" two different assault plans.

Jesus, this isn't a TV show, the bombing was only four days ago and in that time the bombers have been identified, found, one killed and the other one is wounded and surrounded. We hope.

We are talking about an total city area population, including the outer cites of nearly ten million (10,000,000) people. And I've no idea just how many square miles that is.

What on Earth did you expect?

Do you understand that with the bombs at the race, bombs thrown from their car at the cops, bombs at the gunfight, a bomb on the body of the dead one, numerous bombs found at thier apartment...the police are being careful and not just rushing in due to the possibility of there being more bombs?

Where are you from that they are so awesome and cool at handling crazy-ass bomb planters-throwers?

Really hoping they can take this bastard alive. Barely alive, permanently disfigured, and in continuous, agonizing pain.

Puke, I'm trying to argue the point without getting personal, and I get the feeling you're not similarly inclined.

I am simply pointing out that we should probably have a response to situations such as this that is a lot less dramatic.
We need to enlist the aid of the citizenry and do our best to minimize the impact that the inevitable nut-jobs have on our daily lives.

If one can trade ones life for this much coverage and detriment to the general welfare, the bastards will just line up...

Reports on US TV that announcing the lifting of the search and lockdown may have been a ruse. Apparently the barriers stayed up around Franklin St and homeowners were verbally asked to remain indoors.

Just in case you didn't know how US law works regarding police transmissions. While it is perfectly legal to listen to it is illegal to relay the information to anyone else, especially via a transmitting medium like internet.

Just in case you hear black helicopters above you, you'll know why they are there.
