but in the end, we all here come together as americans first. the rest of the world should only be so lucky, imo.

i liked what the president said today, that they messed with the wrong city. damn straight! bostonians are some of the toughest, patriotic, and most resillient people i've ever known.

boston strong!
Thank you bt. And the good news is that one of the terrorists is dead while they hunt for the other. Right now there is a twenty block area in Watertown that is on lockdown. The people cannot leave their homes. Not even to go to work. They are going to be doing a house to house search. Once the pictures were released it was just a matter of hours before they were recognized and reported.

Does anyone here know how they got the terrorists' pictures?
Was it a buiness' surveillance camera, a private individual's camera...?
I can't seem to find an answer Googling and was curious.

Some of the pictures came from a surveillance camera at a department store. Lord & Taylor I think. They may have been the initial shots of one guy on the cell phone rather than the shots of them walking with their backpacks.

It's just a guess, but I'd say the second more recent round of photos also came from a surveillance camera. The angle was a little elevated and fixed.

Lord and Taylor from across the street , Fidelity from same side of the street and private cell phone and photos from both.

Possibly the tennis and racquet club too

The authorities asked for the public's' help. To send any videos that they were taken at the time of the explosions. And boy did they get a response. The FBI site crashed twice. So aside from the Lord & Taylor pictures, they had plenty to work with.

Right now after 18 hours of lock down and police all over the place, there was more gunfire. The report is that they have a person surrounded in a covered boat in a backyard. The reports are that it is the #2 suspect that they have been looking for. I hope so. This has gone on long enough. I feel like I am living in a war zone.
