Watertown aftermath: What happened to the naked guy?

For those who followed the MIT shooting/Watertown gunfight closely on Twitter, police scanners, and local livestreams with us tonight, you’ll recall that a man was captured, told to strip (for fear of having explosives on his body) and taken away in a police car. We showed you these live-tweets at the time:

So what happened to “naked guy?” You ask. We answer:

    As serious as this all is, the fact that “naked guy” actually had nothing to do with anything is so odd and slightly amusing. I wonder who’ll score the first interview with him?

    • ItsThatBriGuy

      Probably Anderson Cooper. NTTAWWT.

      • Dave

        lmao

      • John Yells

        Probably went over the head of many liberals.

        • E Quilibrate

          Were they on their knees?

    • http://PeteBensen.com/ Peter Erik Bensen

      Hopefully the interview won’t be “in costume”.

    • Roger

      What’s amusing about it? I bet you would be laughing if the cops forced you to strip in public at gunpoint! There is something seriously wrong with you!

  • Sherrie Berglin

    That poor naked guy. Talk about a night going sideways. . . Plus, knowing that from that day forward you will be known as ‘naked guy.”

    • http://PeteBensen.com/ Peter Erik Bensen

      Naked guy in the history books too.

    • Roger

      He needs to sue, what a bunch of stupid cops. I doubt if the guy they killed or the guy they are chasing had anything to do with the bombing! They were observed at a 7-11 store but weren’t alleged to have attempted to rob said store until a couple hours later!

  • proudhispanicconservative

    I have to feel sorry for this dude, what an amazing coincidence. On another note the left wing media is crying, it doesn’t appear that it was done by a right wing guy.

    • b_truit

      To all those yesterday who said how dare you say they are foreign, you cannot tell by the video and pics. Well I told you so.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1380857392 Jesus Garza

        They were American white guys. Not really foreign.

        • b_truit

          They are from Chechnya. They have been here for only few years. They are of Islamic faith as most Chechens are. Get your facts straight.

          • Ellie Bellie

            a decade is more than a few years… you get your facts straight. The 19 yr old (suspect 2) practically grew up American (per friends from HS)

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1003376721 Sheldon Cooper

            Okay, they’re Muslim terrorists. Is that better, libbie?

        • Riddle Me This….

          I know. Chechnya, Chicago…what’s the diff? They’re practically right next to each other.

          • b_truit

            “Chechnya Chicago what’s the difference” -sadly you have a slight point

        • therantinggeek

          Nice way to really whiff on this one… :)

      • Roger

        What are these 2 , the 4th and 5th suspects? Think they finally have the right guys this time?

      • grais

        You get no gold star for guessing. You could not tell by the video and pics. All you did was guess. bfd

        • b_truit

          Lol It was an educated guess. But I knew they weren’t “white Americans”. You know nothing of what I do for a living. This isn’t the first time I have Identified people from pictures and video.

          • grais

            I don’t care what you do for a living. You guessed that they weren’t white.

          • b_truit

            And was correct.

          • 24fan

            exactly, whats wrong with guessing?

          • grais

            Yeah. a crap shoot. bfd

          • Ellie Bellie

            You were incorrect if you guessed that they were not white. They are 100% Caucasian. Look up the definition – they are the definition.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1003376721 Sheldon Cooper

            Aren’t you a little late for your abortion?

          • EndangeredNJRepub

            By your logic, every other white guy doesn’t fit the bill of Caucasian if they don’t hail from the region around the Caucasus Mountains. So he still wasn’t wrong about assuming that these guys aren’t white, since you just pointed out that white guys not from the Caucasus are not Caucasian. Consistency. Sometimes confusing for los liberales.

      • rinodino

        Except the word around here was dark skin with names like Abdul on the run lol…. Nice try on trying to change the dark skin Mediterranean look that was the focus….. These dudes are pale and considered White males… Spin it anyway you want

        • EndangeredNJRepub

          They’re still Muslim. Concept was wrong, substance is there.

    • mapache

      What will they do now that it appears not to be an “Angry American white guy” but rather some “off-white international terrorists?” Oh bother!

    • jasonnewyork

      I love it. I come here to find out what happened to the naked guy and I find a long slew of right wingers whining about left wingers!! I’m sure the same thing’s going on at other left wing sites. Left wingers whining about right wingers. Awesome timing! Because everything is about politics and every incident is an opportunity to divide each other!

      • EndangeredNJRepub

        Welcome to 21st Century America.

  • PatriotRG

    These two terrorists are basically weathermen with a tan and better at killing innocent people than Bill Ayers. The survivor when caught will be teaching Sociology at Berkeley with tenure or Columbia with Dorn in 20 years.

    The noise from the left……crickets…silence. They would have all been having a collective orgasm if these guys were white and right wing. They will pivot and blame lack of background checks on the guns the terrorist fired or sequester cuts for the death of the policeman.

    Notice one of these rich kids wana be working class revolutionaries had a picture of Che on his T shirt. Another rich kid lefty killer of innocent people.

        Actually – pretty much everything @PatriotRG:disqus wrote in that comment was incorrect.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1380857392 Jesus Garza

      Well, they WERE white, American, and I guess we don’t know their political affiliation.

      • PatriotRG

        They are NOT American they are Chechen and they are not white European by any means. They are Islamists who all hate America the west capitalism democracy….i.e their politics are in effect left. Islam I know is not a race – but these are from the southern republics of Russia – more central Asian

        • Ellie Bellie

          Do you know what “white” means? It means Caucasian. Do you know what Caucasian means? It means from the Caucus area/mountains… Guess where Chechnya is? smh Learn geography and facts.

          • PatriotRG

            White is not caucasian or come to that circasian. White by the definition of the term is white European northern and southern.

            White by all academic definition excludes the slavic asiatic people , this excludes the cauccases , central asia , Turkey. I know my Geography very well. Thanks for your input though.

          • PatriotRG

            This extension of people from the Caucasus to be called European occurred in the 19th century- its a relatively new catch all description true Europeans (Whites) do not consider themselves in any way related to people from the Caucasus. They have a different culture a different religion a different way of life completely.

          • Elena0412

            Did you get kicked out of Stormfront?

          • PatriotRG

            So we are moving off the topic of geography then ? And on to the good old lefty topic of insulting …You think calling me a fascist or a racist is going to make me wither away ? That may be the case in your lefty cappuccino coffee meetings – but to most your bigoted intolerant behavior to other points of view is obvious.

            The problem is you simply consider the words white as racist. The problem is your racial obsession and indoctrinated hatred of your own color. If I said to you I am proud to be European and White that automatocally tells you in your lefty world that I am a racist. Even a black guy said he is black though …you would be clapping away.

            Next time you want to another Geography lesson though – feel free to ask. Now that we are clear on what white is.

          • Elena0412

            I am as far from the left as you can get. But only morons try to cover the obvious. Look at the link of the Chechnyan president. He’s probably whiter than you and certainly whiter than most Americans (been to any large city lately?). If conservatives don’t call other “conservatives” out for stupidity, we would be no better than the left.

          • PatriotRG

            And my stupidity is what ? That I do not consider Chechens white ? Your missing the point by a mile – its not how white their skin is. Its their genetics and cultural way. And no I don’t think Blacks are better or worse than whites. My definition of white is white European. I don’t consider central Asia European. That’s where we differ. Just for example how I do not consider Turkey to be European.

            You see in each post you have insulted – rather than argued the point. If I am so wrong argue your point instead of implying I am a fascist or stupid. Because that’s exactly how a lefty behaves

          • Elena0412

            What you “consider” and reality are different. White is race, not ethnicity. You may perceive it any way you wish, but you would be wrong.

          • PatriotRG

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucasian_race

            Look at the part where it says Caucassions were only considered part of the European race in 19th century. Like I said a new addition – one disputed by many not just me. Its not what I perceive only its millions of white Europeans – do not consider Central Asians European. Tough to admit you are wrong – but give it a go.

            Show me modern proof not some random arbitrary changing of the categorization in the 19th Century that central asians are European ? Central Asians for 100 of years have not be considered European until recently.

            Convinced yet ? I will keep it simple its not the whiteness of the skin its if they are European genetically culturally – they are central Asian. Stop being so stubborn you know I’m right 😉

          • Elena0412

            Yes. I am convinced now. Clearly these two are black.

          • PatriotRG

            White is not a race by a long shot. there is no such race as White. There is European , Asian etc . Seriously come on. And you don’t where I come from so don’t make assumptions about white can only be like me

        • Elena0412
          • PatriotRG

            I know what he looks like. You keep thinking I am a stupid jackbooted Nazi. The point is he is from central Asia not European not what I consider ‘white’ European. And I know you also get white blond European muslims.

            Frankly I cant think of a City except some of the U.S and Africa that haven’t been in.

          • Elena0412

            You have no idea what I imagine you to be. Let me enlighten you. You hold an irrational belief that only those like you are white. What you “consider” is meaningless.

      • capisce

        from one’s social media page: World View – Islam. I’d say that’s a pretty big clue.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1003376721 Sheldon Cooper

        Why do you stupid phucking liberals keep defending these radical Mooooslims? You do understand they would slit your throat given the chance, right? Try as you might, you’re never going to be their “buddy”. In fact, liberals, radical Muslims, Communists; who can tell the difference anymore?

        he lives in the U.S for over 10 years goes to the U.S best schools , sheltered educated protected defended by U.S democracy and he doesn’t understand Americans.

        He doesn’t have a problem enjoying all those American freedoms though he sure understands those!

    • Griffonian

      @PatriotRG

      A. Timothy McVeigh and Eric Rudolph were both right-wing nuts. Do you think that fact allows people to constantly equate conservatives with them?

      B. The Che Guevara t-shirt was worn by Sunil Tripathi, who isn’t even a suspect. Yet I have a feeling that doesn’t change anything for you, or your hateful diatribe.

      • PatriotRG

        I dont disagree with either A or B – Where do i ? And you will see one of my posts wonders why Sunil a hindu name is in the frame – so f*ck off

        • PatriotRG

          The pigment of his skin is white yes – but he is from central Asia – Not northern , eastern western or southern Europe which makes up what is known as white Europeans. Its not that hard. You need move off skin colour….

      • PatriotRG

        Typical a*hole lefty – discussing Timothy Mcvey when the two terrorists in question are Islamic militants from an Islamic central Asian republic.

        • Griffonian

          The point I was making is that you do exactly the same shit you bitch about extreme leftists pulling. You compare these two psychos with some left-wing terrorists of the far past, as if it’s somehow unique to that political leaning. All I did was remind you that psychos come in all shapes, and to equate liberalism with terrorism is beyond reprehensible.

          Oh and fyi I’m a centrist. It’s funny how me criticizing your ignorant diatribe makes you think I’m some bleeding heart liberal. The type of people with those knee-jerk reactions are always wacko nutjobs in my experience. Not surprised in the least you had it.

          • PatriotRG

            I equate far leftism with them wanting to destroy a democracy – I equate Islam with a totalitarian repressive movement…Leftists are on the whole always on the defense of totalitarian regimes – Mao – Stalin – Pol Pot all from the left. .The right is insignificant in comparison in its output of nutcases. Sure there are extreme right wing crazies but the left wing media hypes that up to thew power of 10 and downplays or totally ignores left wing inspired terror. If you say you are a centrist fine. The political center debate has been moved to the left by the far left wing media. So I see you as a leftist. You are not a centrist. Any moderate center right idea is now considered extreme and crazy. Which is why idiots bring up Mcvey in the Boston terror outrage. Mcvey was what 18 years ago. Nothing to do with an Islamic terror cell in Boston. So stop doing the lefts job for them or simply admit you are of the left.

            Liberals to are leftist – there are good normal leftist who I disagree with but respect for example Kirsten Power there are far left liberals who I loath Chris Mathews , Beckles. Not all liberals are far left wing nuts.

            Pick a side – this is about simply that – progressive anti religion anti family we are one world open borders
            Try terrorist in civilian courts , find liberal excuses for their behaviour. Or safeguarding of democracy – family values – religion – small government self reliance.

            Pick aside or get of the field

            http://www.nationalreview.com/article/346145/jihad-will-not-be-wished-away/page/0/1

            you may find this interesting – may be you can tone down the insults. Cenrist yeh right

          • Griffonian

            I agree, jihadists/extreme muslims, whatever you want to call it, is the world’s biggest blight to human civilization. But let me ask you this:

            Do you believe that most muslims seek to do you harm?
            Do you believe that most leftists defend jihadists?
            Do you believe the best course of action in ending this toxic ideology is to stamp out all forms of Islam?

            If you answer yes to any of those questions, I’d say you are paranoid and delusional. And based off the first post by you that I read, this would not surprise me in the least.

          • PatriotRG

            Not most muslims (a lot more than the left wing press says, and not enough moderates have the co-hones to moderate islam against the extremists). Big example in the catholic church there is a mild discussion about gay marrage. Catholic church is heald to account rightly so. In Islam Imams preach DEATH to homosexuals – homosexuals are killed in Islamic countries – silence from the progressives and the left. Hold Islam to account forget PC bullshit.

            Not most leftis – (to many for comfort, Sirotas , Becles Barney Franks etc)
            Not to stamp islam out but to hold it accountable and not keep cutting it any slack for stoning women , for honour killing, for blowing up innocent commuters in to strawberry jam.

            Not paranoid – I lost a friend on the south tower and almost died in july bombings in london.

            So read again

          • PatriotRG

            My turn

            Do you believe all Muslims are peaceful ?
            Do you not think most terror outrages are by Islamist ?
            Do you think Islam allows freedom of speech ?
            Do you think Islam allows equality for women?
            Do you think Islam allows equality for gays ?
            Do you think the left are pro left /Islamic terrorism and will lobby not to execute Boston bomber ? but fought to give Mcvey the death penalty (rightly so)?

            Do you think the media, Academia , Hollywood is on the
            the whole left wing ?

  • EOD

    Abundance of caution is not a very good legal defense for false arrest and the unusual punishment of ordering the public stripping naked of American Citizen, as was pointed out when Japanese Americans were placed in internment camps during World War II out of an abundance of caution.

    At minimum the Boston PD needs to take that man out to dinner, and perhaps buy him some new clothes….. in reverse order of course.
