Whoa, whoa, whoa.

My stance has been, "Christ, what an asshole." I don't want him to be hurt, or have his life ruined permanently by the system. I also disagree with those who want him to burn.

But it's completely unfair to say that first responders over reacted when it initially happened and they should have known it was a harmless art prank.

Other thing is, I didn't see a lot of people actually howling for blood in this thread.

I saw people (myself included) making predictions on police reactions, etc, but nobody demanding the kid be bastinadoed.  There is a difference between stating a prediction and hoping that it actually happens.

I don't know exactly what you guys are responding to, but my posts were in response to the kid being arrested and charged with terrorism.

FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN, I don't think the police acted inappropriately.  They didn't thrash the kid in the street (again, incomplete information) or in the cells.

But when he is sent to a psychologist to determine his condition, rather than being held in a mental institution pending judicial action/arraignment, it means they're trying to prove that he was competent, so they can fuck him into prison for 35 years.  So, you know...

At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre."

You were a bit vehement.  Made me defensive.

The first clue that something was amiss Tuesday came when a police officer spotted a man with a backpack walking barefoot in the rain down Boylston Street. Police said he became very vocal and started yelling.
When asked what was in the backpack, the man told the officer it was a rice cooker, Boston Police Superintendent Randy Halstead said.
"We looked into the backpack, saw that it was what appeared to be a rice cooker, had the individual take the knapsack off, drop it on the street, and he was taken into custody," Halstead said.

So that's my timeline question resolved.

Good enough.  Until there's another version.

After all, it's cops talking, here.  And you can believe me when I say that you never, ever trust a cop's testimony.

I don't blame them for taking him into custody, at all. The whole "TURRISM" thing, though... dunno about that.
