Corrected: Not Sunil Tripathi?

This is a fresh thread.

Before I go to sleep, I'll sum up what I know. Update: Now that I hear reports, turns out I didn't know what I thought I did.

Although the name "Sunil Tripathi" was said on the police scanner as a name of a suspect...

Pete Williams of NBC is saying that's wrong. BuzzFeed is also now knocking this theory.

In fact, the guy doesn't really look like Sunil. If the recent rumors (these seem to be rumors too) are true, that these guys are full-on trained jihadis from overseas, then I guess it's not Sunil Tripathi.

I'm leaving the post up, by and large, but note that it's possible a cop mentioned the name "Sunil Tripathi" while being mistaken about who he thought he was pursuing.


The actual terrorists (not Sunil, wrongly accused) carjacked a civilian's car at some point. On the scanner I heard they were escaping in a Police SUV -- so I think (but don't know) they did take a cop's car at some point.

During the chase, they fired on the police, and also threw hand grenades or other explosives at them.

Black Hat was critically injured in the shootout and died at some point during his medical treatment.

White Hat slipped away is currently on the run. There is a massive, massive manhunt in the Watertown area now. By the time you read this, he may be captured. Or, I think, he'll be found dead by his own hand, because he's a coward, and he'll join his murder-friend in hell.

As you can imagine, he's a tea partier, just as Chris Matthews and NPR said he would be.

Police are currently attempting to draw him out of his hiding place by playing Brad Paisely music over their speakers. They have also constructed an elaborate snare-trap, baited with ribs, high-end fishing equipment, and Bibles.

In case the situation should escalate, they've deputized a civilian to act as a Hostage Crisis Negotiator. That civilian? You guessed it, Jeff Foxworthy.

Obviously we're going to have to have a national conversation, lecturing one side about their celebration of and propensity for political violence. But alas it will not be the side which makes unrepentant terrorist murders university professors.

And the conversation will not be directed at the side that keeps producing terrorists and murderers.

No, it will be directed at us.

Of course. As it always is.

See the last thread for what went down this night.

Update: There are now reports these guys may have had overseas military training -- full-on jihadis, in other words.

Or perhaps by "overseas" they mean "in Texas," where they were taught their Texas Teabag Terrorism craft.
