119. Obama's and the Massachusetts and Boston officials did not act at all like Bush did

All of them spoke of the community and of the need to get the people who did this -- and, in their case, they meant exactly the people "who did this". The LE could not have been more disciplined or more in communication with the community. The fact that Bostonians flooded the streets cheering them on and many posting here through the day -saying that they were in agreement with the way it was handled means something.

Do you have any idea of what these two guys did late Thursday and early Friday? If the police didn't do everything they did, the questions would be about their competence. Imagine they did NOT close the subway and the 19 year old with one of the remaining ieds ran into the subway and exploded it - creating an additional tragedy. As it was they killed a policeman and seriously injured another cop. Do you realize that in addition to the ieds etc found in their appartment, the man knew how to make more. Buying more pressure cookers, nails, gun powder etc would not be hard. Everything made it harder for him to flee and hide.

To argue that the capture of one terrorist and the killing of the other criminal while he shot at the police (ignore the fact that they were terrorists) for what they did and to keep them from doing more is equivalent to starting a war based on lies is ridiculous.

Go ahead pride yourself as someone too pure to agree with what most people see as good law enforcement. Don't bother to consider that had you been in the next wrong place to be had these men escaped, you would want those same LE guys to protect you. (If you doubt there would have been more, consider they had more munitions made and did not take credit for the attack.)
