    Folks in Watertown have lined the streets, and they’re cheering the police. Security at Mt Auburn Hospital is massive. No word yet on the condition of the POS.

    • myiq2xu says:

      Some of those cops were on duty nearly 24 hours.

      • elliesmom says:

        The Police Commissioner says some of his people worked 40 hours straight. “It was personal.”

    • fif says:

      All things considered, it really does warrant respect and acknowledgment. These two guys were not pros, but the police and FBI wrapped this up pretty quickly, and even got him alive. Imagine if they got away. Anyone in their home planning something take note: we will hunt you down.

    Twitter continually scooped the media today.

  8. votermom says:

    The eerie silence from the WH continues.

    • Mary says:

      Trying to figure out how to explain that Russia warned them about this older brother in 2012, but FBI cleared the man as not a risk.


  9. fif says:

    My sister has been trapped in her house all day in Somerville. I’m so relieved it’s over.

  10. HELENK says:

    I really hope he talks. I do not believe it was just the two of them involved. Just do not let there be a Benghazi coverup


  11. elliesmom says:

    There’s a ton of people waiting for the ambulance at Mt Auburn, but it’s strange that it hasn’t arrived yet. It’s just a couple of blocks away. I’d guess they’ve taken him somewhere else.

  12. DeniseVB says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong. The suspect was captured *alive* so will we ever hear about him again?

    • elliesmom says:

      He has a number of gunshot wounds. In critical condition at Mass General where many of his victims are still being treated.

  13. HELENK says:

    Since I do not know the twitter thing I could not just link the one about tweety tingles so I brought the whole thing over.

    it is official…….tweety tingles is a complete a$$hole

  14. DeniseVB says:

    Suspect on his way to Mass General in “serious” condition.

    • Somebody says:

      Mass general huh? Wouldn’t you hate to be on staff there, imagine having to save his sorry ass.

  15. Underwhelmed says:

    And already ABC news is trying to mitigate this little shit — emphasising that he’s ‘teenaged’ iow not responsible for his actions. But I reckon the real tapdancing will start once Obama comes out of his bunker.

  16. HELENK says:

    RT @CBSNewYork: #BREAKING: Boston PD spokesman tells CBS News’ Don Dahler Boston bombing suspect is in “serious if not critical condition.”

    Bombing suspect needs medical attention. #PagingDrGosnell

    Obama is gonna speak … not watching.

  19. Underwhelmed says:

    Uh. Journos asking questions at the presser already framing the narrative that this goatfucker is the victim. They make me sick.

    Thank Koresh for DVR!

    ain’t no love in the heart of the city…

  22. elliesmom says:

    We shouldn’t rush to judgment says Obama. Unless you’re a white Hispanic and then it’s OK to call you a racist murderer

    • Erica says:

      Yep. See my above comment about whom he loves. I got the same vibe when I saw the pictures of him watching the Osama Bin Laden take down. He looked crestfallen. And remember the pics yesterday of him hearing about Boston? Mr. It’s No Big Deal I’m Just Kickin Back With My Legs Crossed. He really doesn’t care about average American citizens. I think he hates most of the people in this country.

  26. If they hadn’t lifted the lockdown, he would have likely been found dead from his injuries. I figured he was holed up somewhere, trying to wait it otu.

    “Suspect on his way to Mass General in “serious” condition.”
    From news reports (a questionable source) he was transported to the Beth Israel Hospital, same place where his POS brother died. I wonder if you still get to screw 72 goats if you die in a Jewish Hospital?

    I take exception to this part of the BPD tweet:

    The terror is over.

    Um, no. This punk & his brother are a small part of a much bigger picture. It’s not “over” & it’s foolish to pretend otherwise.

    • yttik22 says:

      I totally agree. I’m so glad they captured this guy alive and I hope he recovers, because somebody helped them, somebody radicalized them. And somebody bought them 900 dollar shoes and paid the rent.

      • swanspirit says:

        Right , and I am so weary of the PC people. Being PC gets people killed by terrorists . What other religion has TERRORISTS in almost every country all over the world? Those crazy Buddhists?? I don’t think so

    • Jadzia says:

      Absolutely, Angie. It makes absolutely no sense to say that a terrorist strike of this magnitude, which obviously required careful planning, was carried out by 2 teenage boys all by themselves. Has the spokesperson for the BPD ever met a teenage boy?

  36. SHV says:

    “Um, no. This punk & his brother are a small part of a much bigger picture. It’s not “over”….”
    The war has been going on for more than a thousand years; this may be the beginning of a new phase for this country.

    Should I laugh or cry?

    Latvian neighbor told me that older brother was annoyingly anti-American. “But a lot of people in Cambridge talk like that.”

      That reminds me of what Romney did to find his friend’s daughter (Melissa Gay) in New York.

    Best line of the night (from AoS HQ, of course by a poster named garycooper):

    America’s Chechens have come home to roost.
