Weird that these guys felt the need to rob a 7-11. I hope they can capture the second suspect alive - he's worth a lot more alive than dead.
Is the entire city of Boston in lockdown, or just Watertown? Hopefully this ends in just a few hours, but if not, does the Pens' game get cancelled?

Minutes before the bombs blew up in Boston, Jeff Bauman looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him.
Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview.
Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart. A picture of him in a wheelchair, bloodied and ashen, was broadcast around the world as he was rushed to Boston Medical Center. He lost both legs below the knee.
“He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, ‘bag, saw the guy, looked right at me,’” Chris Bauman said yesterday in an interview.

The speed and overwhelming firepower with which the authorities have responded has been amazing.
Tico Rick wrote:Not to be snarky, but is it a fact that the people in that picture blew up the Boston marathon? If they did, they would certainly be classified as terrorists. If they happened to be Arab, does that automatically provide us with their motivation?

It doesn't with 100 % certainty. But if Vegas took bets on such motives you could get 20 to 1 odds that the motive was Islamic based.
It was the hope-they-were-white-redneck-skinhead-southerner syndrome.
The bombers would have been scum whether they were neo-nazis, radical lefties(like the would-be Ohio bridge bombers), Muslims(the most frequent perps), or angry girl scouts. Many people want to pretend that there isn't a constant radical Muslim threat against the U.S.
