(Does anyone want to guess how this would have played out in Texas... I sure don't.)
Please explain why any of this would be different in Texas? I don't understand the location as an indicator?

Personally, and in all honesty, I was sickened by the draconian police-state approach to finding this guy.
If your love one was killed or maimed by these guys, would you still feel sickened?

How about a big NOT well done to all those Boston finest! Please consider the reasons for my disparaging comment to such a great ending.
First, how many active police officers did it take to look for ONE man? Five thousand, ten thousand, a figure you will not hear about since it would give away some National Security risk. What about the number of tactical vehicles; which were brought in from around this and adjoining states to do what, provide a show and tell?
'But the one issue that really frost my butt is the unofficial mandate of issuing Marshal Law which shut down how many major communities (five, six or more) effecting 1 million or more people; including shutting down the entire Boston public transportation and do what, instructed everyone in those communities to stay at home with their doors and windows locked and hide/cover their behinds under a table? Ridiculous! This event should never have escalated to this point, if the police NOT allow ONE MAN, the younger brother to escape.
It appears that there are so many questions which need answering, making this whole episode counterproductive. Yet we see all of the politicians patting each other on the back for a job well done. Insulting!
edit on 20-4-2013 by ykyrys because: I had to add a "t" to event and ONE MAN in the final sentance.

They just shot the first kid, and so I thank the police for not putting him through that long process in court, they truly are heroic. Not. And how was 9/11 neat? It was a mess with people jumping off buildings, fire trucks and ambulances everywhere, and people screaming with so much smoke that people couldn't even see in front of them.
