5. Welcome to DU, RGinNJ! I say YEAH! too!!!

Glad you're here!

MAN - such a rotten week - but with an upbeat ending! I won't say flat-out happy since there was death, destruction, and carnage, loss and heartbreak, huge disappointment and dejection and disillusionment. This was a week when it was pretty easy to get discouraged.

Thank you to Boston's Finest for rehabilitating it a little. It ended on an up note. Grateful to say that, too.

Right to the point, and boy, do I ever agree.

4. MA has no death penalty

That could have made it even more tempting for someone to use any excuse to take a shot at him.

So yes. Good work taking him alive.

6. But the Feds are handling this.

Terra! Terra! Terra!

Of course.

The woman who hounded Mr. Swartz to suicide is deciding his fate right now.

8. Yep. I shiver to think what Putin would have done if these cretins had done the same in Moscow.

9. I'm actually really impressed they took him alive.

SOO often in situations like this, when one officer is dead and another one is down, some cops anger (quite reasonably) will boil to the surface and they end up shooting first and asking questions later.

In this situation in particular, I think we can all agree it was far preferable to take this scumbag alive, and I have nothing but respect for the skilled officers who apprehended him w/o further bloodshed.

Kudos, and a glass heartily raised to Boston's Finest, along with all the other authorities involved. Great work, ladies and gentlemen!
