Boston can sleep better tonight!

Although still in mourning, I'm sure that our friends in Boston will sleep much better tonight. Hats off to all law enforcement and the FBI in catching the remaining terrorist. I hope we can get more information on what motivated these kids to do such an awful thing and I am looking forward to seeing justice enforced! My heart goes out to all the family and friends of the victims that were either lost or injured in this despicable attack.

Yes, Hallelujah! Our law enforcement personnel from city to state to federal agencies, worked well together. I'm sure there is much more secondary investigation to take place, but at least this initial milestone is behind the people of Massachusetts.

Kudos to the law enforcement personnel working this case

It's interesting the uncle thought they were both losers, even though he hadn't seen them in 7 years...

Think outside the box!

Keeping in mind that it was indeed an atrocity, one must remember this is just a couple of messed up kids! i don't see a deep dark hidden conspiracy here. Unfortunately, this is the kind of thing that in order for America to keep its freedoms, we cannot protect against.

From north of the border..what I saw.

At the time of attack, despite the shock, the police and emergency services did their jobs. So did the average citizen - they stopped and helped their fellow man, whether then knew them or not.

The various levels of government set aside their differences (and every level loves to protect their turf - LEOs, FBI, ATF, etc) and got THE job done quickly. The citizens were scared and upset, but the feeling was they were being protected.

The second perp was caught because an average citizen did as he was told - he kept his eyes open, saw something out of place (blood trace, neighbour's boat cover disturbed) and did not get nosy but called the authorities, and they listened.

They pulled together as a team. Something the terrorists (any and all) want badly to destroy. They want to pit the citizens against the government/law enforcement. The terrorists killed innocents, incensed the local population, and in the end they failed in their mission.

Based solely on the news reports, the older brother was in Dagistan for several months and was probably radicalized there - he may have sought it out. Then it seems he perverted his younger sibling. Terrorist organizations reach out over social media (aka the internet) and encourage terrorism - unlike the past they don't need nor want coordinated attacks. So Mensra I have to disagree with your view, at least until all the investigations are complete.

I hope this is not too political....

I agree the system worked. What I mean is that this is not an enemy that we need to send an army in after. (Thank God!)
