Yes, cigarettes caught this guy. Go big tobacco!! Just playin, I see what you are saying. I am not criticizing the police because I do not know of a
better plan on how to catch the guy. A lot of people are critical of the police but you know what? I do not think any of them have offered a
legitimate alternative to hunt the guy down. Paint me a picture please. Imagine you are a police officer and you are hunting down a guy who possibly
killed a colleague, severely injured another, car jacks a guy, throws some bombs at you and some sort of grenades. One gets killed in a shoot out and
the other flees. What do you do? You talk about the tanks etc.. I feel like you're comparing it to a massive militarization. This wasn't
fallujah man, this was not a major military operation. Did I miss the Abrams tank going through the neighborhood? Can you share a picture of what
you believe a tank is?

I had to follow up this post....I believe that 12 years of constant war and 24/7 conditioning of the public to being perfectly ok with it, along with
the militarization of our police for is what has produced American citizens who can actually look at something completely abhorrent to all of us pre
9/11 and now cheers for it, while at the same time justifying the entirely un-American catastrophe(which is the militarized police response to the
Boston bombing search for one wounded suspect, resulting in the insane "shelter in place" order)....
"This wasn't Fallujah".......pretty close in terms of strength...I believe they said 9000 militarized police showed up to hunt two common criminals
labeled Boston terrorists...compared to 10,500 soldiers that responded to Fallujahs 3700- 4000 battle hardened insurgents....Just think about that for
a second...you really don't see a problem with that? You really think that was "appropriate"....
"Did I miss the Abram's tank"....For gods sake man, the "Police officer" is siting in the turret of a military Humvee with a machine gun pointed
at a citizen(who was just ordered to stay in his home)??? Surrounded by 20 or so "Police officers" clad in military uniforms with machine guns,
flack jackets and combat helmets! There were Black Hawks flying around, the only combat vehicle that wasn't present was a Abram's Tank.
And yet, here in lies the problem...Americans have become so completely terrified, utterly scared s#@tless, that you look at this as appropriate, you
huddle in your "shelter in places" and pray that someone, anyone, will save you from the "big bad terrorist"...now these same scared Americans
will beg to have their rights to carry bags at sporting events..taken away. Drinks? Could be liquid bombs, so you'll have to drink those in a
designated drinking area at your local sporting event. Our children enduring full body pat downs like they already have to do at our airports..As
if..it's sickening and a sad day for every American. You just know our fore fathers are doing somersaults in their graves right now.
And all this because the government labeled two common criminals as terrorists.
By the way, I'll paint you a picture...everything you said happens...the kid speeds off ditches his car and they find the blood in the car...they
know he's wounded(and for all we know there was a massive amount of blood and they knew he wasn't gonna go far period)..so they do what they do for
any normal search for a criminal...set up multiple perimeters..and check all cars that come and go...tell the public to be on the look out and report
any thing suspicious...wait him out. And in the end, as it has been noted, a citizen was the one who found him after there insane shelter in place
order was lifted. The bottom line is it was all simply just a sick show of extreme force, and how militarized they have become(the Police), they were
just waiting to show it off for the public and jumped at the chance to say.."See this is how we get down now...try and oppose us".
