    Could they arrest for obstruction? Or at least threaten with arrest to make them take down the feeds. I don't know, it does seem unlikely.

    I presume they don't want the suspect to know when they're going in, so he doesn't blow himself up.
    Police scanners are legal. For all the police know he could have one. As for him using the internet to listen well I think the cell phone networks would be jammed so thats a no go and anyway if he'd been using the phone to listen all day I'm sure the battery would be dead by now.

      Someone from CNN has just managed to get a glimpse of the boat, and heard officers shouting for the suspect to come out. The reporter didn't hear any response from inside the boat. This was minutes ago

      ABC News update: "Eyewitness: Neighbour went to check boat behind his house today, saw blood, climbed up ladder to open boat's cover, saw a body, called police."
    They saw blood, and here was shooting today so I assume he is critically injured and unable to fight back properly.

    [I think I found the location of the fight on Google Maps btw, but it's not much good ofc, it's pics from the past]

    Tell me more about how much evidence has been collected that these attacks were motivated by religion?
    I'd say Tamurlane's Youtube profile, with its many extremist Islamic videos, provides at the least, the most probable hypothesis.

    Why would you do that? Seriously "oh, some blood - I'll just check if the terrorist is inside... Oh he is now I'll call the police!"

    My understanding is that it's not actually breaking any laws. The police in the US are broadcasting unencrypted, and scanners are entirely legal. Equally, the 1st Amendment provides a very strong presumption against the police being able to shut this down.

    Nixon couldn't even get a court order against publication by the New York Times of the Pentagon Papers, despite the fact that they were Top Secret and stolen.



    We're not hearing SWAT or FBI radios. They operate on encrypted frequencies. This is just the BPD beat cops.
    Interesting, I know nothing of US law at all, thanks.

    "Shots fired" earlier, also remember that massive shootout where the brother got killed?

    I think the scanners are just not being used except for rubbish now

    Franklin Street, Watertown, Massachusetts, United States

    Top right of the street on the Eastern end before the junction, there's a blue tarp partly hidden under a tree.

    [Disclaimer: This location was general knowledge, given by the news companies]

    EDIT: Sorry, seems I was wrong. Not far tho. Bottom corner of the street, southern side, second house up.

    You can keep living in your left wing/Islamo fantasy land.

    I'll live in reality where Islam is on a global march for domination afflicting scores of countries with terrorism, insurgencies and outright war.

    It's 'people' like you that would have asked us to 'prove' that every German we killed in WWII was a Nazi.

    Your fantasy land means nothing to me. You're not a guardian of humanity. You're not someone that will progress it, defend it or protect it.

    You're a nuisance in humanity. A nuisance that still needs to be protected.

    So by all means flap your gums on the internet about rights and proof, whilst those that protect humanity and civilisation take out another rat.

    There's amazing resolution on Google Maps. You can see the actual boat.
