What the hell is going on here?
http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/19/us/boston-...?hpt=hp_t1

If you read this article right it makes it sound like Boston is on the verge of an all out riot. A police officer was shot and killed on the MIT campus ending in a high speed chase and a standoff with the suspect.

I suspect this is hyped media bullshit. Not that shooting and killing a cop is mundane, but assaults, murders and robberies are happening all over the United States as well as every other country in the world tonight, but we're intensely covering this. Maybe it's because of the bombings at the Boston Marathon, but this hysteria in the media is really starting to get out of control.

UPDATE: it may be more serious than I previously stated. Massive police operations are underway now in Boston. New reports are claiming that shootouts with police and explosions happening.

The news here said there was a police officer shot, never mentioned anything about a chase or explosions. May well be media bullshit to get people watching.

The first news service I heard that connected the dots correctly was the BBC over-night.

It could be quiet enough to hear crickets, but those armed swat team members walking around could probably cause a panic all by themselves! So I'm sure it's big news if you live in those suburbs. I'm sure someone was murdered in downtown KC within the last 8 hours, but I'm not dealing with armored riot vehicles storming up & down the street in front of MY house!

RE: What the hell is going on here?
Let's not forget that the guy who died in a shoot out with the police has a partner that may, or may not, feel like going out the same way. So if you live in that area, and have children who'd like to play outside, it's probably a good idea to at least let them know when the guy's caught, and the whole possible-bullets-flying situation is taken care of. The rocket plant that blew up due to lax safety precautions won't disrupt a little-league game.....unless someone was dumb enough to put a playground next to a rocket plant. And the people who died inside the plant died just as tragically, but.......they work in a fuckin rocket plant and shit happens sometimes!
