BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


 


A PROCLAMATION


 



As a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on April 15, 2013, in Boston, Massachusetts, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, April 20, 2013. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.


 


IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this sixteenth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-seventh.


BARACK OBAMA

Ongoing manhunt involving State police, FBI, ATF, and regular police after a shooting at MIT and double robbery at two gas stations in the area. Two suspects drove around in a stolen (State trooper?) SUV in a chase all around Cambridge and into Watertown while firing back and forth. Several officers down, reports of suspicious packages in the area, and multiple explosions from pipebombs. EOD was called out to a nearby hospital and are sweeping the area.

The pair are confirmed as the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.


 


 


They've found a pressure cooker bomb at the crime-scene.


 


One suspect were shot before being taken into custody and died while being transported to the hospital.


 


The other suspect is still in the Watertown area, likely in someone's house.

I'm really hoping this is all speculation, and it turns out to just be two dumb kids who happen to be from that region who wanted to cause some trouble. 


 


Last thing we need is another war.

I hope the same too Caleb. The Russian Army has the Chechen region pretty well covered last I recall.
