Exactly My grandmother was put in a nursing home and I told them she was crazy out of her mind...They home director was "shocked that I said that"(her words) Because she had never met anyone who actually admitted their family member was "crazy"(my word)...And that everyone always just wanted to make excuses for their loved ones


Probably most people have a little more respect for their elderly loved ones than to throw around vulgar and insensitive language like "crazy" about them.

She must have been taken aback by your lack of empathy, I'd guess.


But if it was said as her grandmother poured water over her own head while shouting "I'm drowning", she may have felt the situation deserved an explanation.

Or maybe because he did seem a normal person?

It might be comforting to think that crazy murderers are easily identifiable but many times they're otherwise normal decent person. A scary reality that people ought to confront.


Maybe, but it's become a cliche now after anyone does something extreme.

I would be scared also if I bombed a marathon, killed a officer, shot at multiple other officers and threw IED's and grenades at those officers wounding 15 of them.

Yeah, he's probably innocent.

Well what I read was the fbi got the big break by the victim in the wheelchair...

said when he woke up after wards, he wrote a note saying something like "i saw him, looked right at me", said when the guy dropped the bag, it exploded like 2 minutes later, and gave the description of the guy and the bag. Im assuming thats when the real hunt started

Be grateful you cant get to a television. The most logical question is how did he get away from all those police. I have yet to hear why.

So it is already proven this guy was one of the bombers? From what I hear I doubt it. They make a big fuss about his twitter but there is nothing written really strange. Maybe he's just hiding somewhere because he's scared??


Sounds like you need to get caught up (no worries, a LOT has happened since yesterday). I'd recommend going on one of the mainstream news sites for a quick summary before trying to follow this thread, as 4 pages get added by the time you finish a post...

What's the deal with the no-fly zone? To conceal police activity, or are they concerned about something else?

Yeah, you did say it a lot nicer than I did. I apologize for being a little short.

Unless the dude has a pilots license and here is a spare chopper lying around.

They want clear skies for the drones to come through


Its really probably more about being able to get police and blackhawk helos in and out as needed, as well and keeping their tactics covert by restricting the ability of news agencies to get in the sky and film what is going on.

Maybe I missed it, but has anything been said about what they were doing on the MIT campus when they encountered the MIT police officer? Or where they were on the campus?

Just wondering if they were there for a reason other than just passing through en route to somewhere.

Suspect probably long gone by now and nothing of any further interest likely to happen besides the controlled detonation later on. Think I'll go read my book now, it's enough obsessing for me for one day

No doubt, but I think the reality is probably the family doesn't know better. Lets say you are crazy and sick in the head, even still you probably try to keep it on the down low rather than letting your family know you're a loony

They were tossing grenades, pipe bombs, and firing on police. 15 police are hospitalized. The kid's brother was killed in the exchange. That is a lot of confusion. He drove over his bro to get away, and seems to have carjacked another after (given the new vehicle searches). He is likely being sheltered by someone obviously.

I think they said earlier it was so the police helicopters weren't disturbed when they were flying round. Makes sense really.

It is my understanding that the no-fly-zone is limited to 3000-feet and below. perhaps trying to keep news helicopters out of range of explosives/RPG.

I'm sorry if this was already discussed or I just missed something but the how the first brother died doesn't make sense.

In the early morning, I remember seeing a picture posted on this thread with the first brother on the ground. A poster pointed out he could be wearing a bomb due to the straight edges seen through his jacket.

But then a doctor said on CNN that the brother had damage through his entire torso due to some type of explosion damage. I didn't see this damage on the photo, so when did this happen? Something doesn't make sense.
