thier was chater on the police radios as such. thier was a boat in the water nearby that reported back as a false call.

No, it's bogus 21.Mar.2003 13:10

Not true. I heard this on the scanner, but it was quickly redacted by the dispacher - although it was hard to hear. It also went out on the paging network, but the correction didn't seem to get out.

I wish ALL of you idiots would go for a swim in the Willamette, preferably off a bridge!

I love the way that all "anti-radical freak" entries are deleted off the site! Way to go, free press lovers!

And posts like these are neither constructive or even interesting. It helps keep a good signal-to-noise ratio by hiding them, if they are at all. The site is buggy, I've had posts dropped often too.

Anyhow, if you REALLY think that statements like:

"MOTORISTS SHOULD JUST KILL PEOPLE"

or

"I WISH ALL OF YOU WOULD JUMP IN THE RIVER"

are productive, please feel free to submit a clever and well thought out rebuttal defending them. Otherwise, STFU.

By the way, taking the moral high ground with the Freedom of Speech makes you look pretty silly when all you can seem to use your speech for is whining and the childish advocation of violence against most of your audience.

Indymedia was founded in Seattle to provide a forum for alternative voices (ie those who are not found in the corporate media) not to provide a forum for right-wing cranks. You've got your talk radio for that. So fuck off.

Bye, now.

paging network correction 21.Mar.2003 13:57

no one in particular

Quoting an above poster:It also went out on the paging network, but the correction didn't seem to get out.

We tried to send a correction but, due to a bug in the software, lines that started with a word and a colon weren't sent out.

The exact message we tried to send out was
CORRECTION: NO ONE IN THE RIVER
But it obviously didn't make it through.

Sorry for the confusion.
