And they have arrested the man who probably sent the two letters with ricin (possibly) in them.

The two young men who are the apparent suspects should turn themselves in, if they know what is good for them.

If the scumbags who did the bombing think their religion is worth to killing for, they should just commit suicide somewhere else instead of harm innocent people.

Boston Police: 1 Marathon Suspect Dead, ‘White Hat Suspect At Large’; T Service Suspended
Much of the Boston area (Cambridge and Watertown in particular) are essentially in lockdown.

Quote:
Update at 6:48 a.m.: In two tweets, the AP breaks potential details on the alleged bombers:

AP sources: Boston bomb suspects from Russia region near Chechnya, lived in US at least 1 year.

Surviving Boston bomb suspect identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass.

WBUR has not confirmed the AP details.

If anyone on here is a Twitter user, I can personally guarantee your Twitter feed will be more accurate and up to date than CNN. My slight respect for CNN has disappeared, their broadcasts have been barely more than a 2 ring circus.

About an hour or two ago, Boston PD shut down the online police scanner feeds. They are telling the media/residents not to tweet pictures of the tactical positioning of SWAT in their backyards. I'm seeing photos of SWAT on sheds, surrounding houses, pictures of the bullets that tore the neighborhood up last night. This is terrible.

Just because they have been in America for ten years, or they are from the region of the world that gives us the term "Caucasian", doesn't make them American in any way. These men need the strongest, swiftest justice this world has ever seen. I get disgusted when the news reports that the police need to read these jagoffs their Miranda rights. If you cause a terror event, whether you are foreign or domestic, you have NO rights.

Sorry, but Miranda rights are a big part of how we define justice here. What you are suspected or accused of doesn't change that- as Richard Jewell can attest.

If we just burn everyone at the stake, no evidence, trial, and jury, how do we know they are even guilty? Or who else is involved? Or anyone beyond those two? Or if they were drugged, brain washed, people/family held hostage, so on? I am not saying anything makes it right, but there may be more to it than just two individuals wanting to cause terror.

I, personally, completely agree on swift justice. But, swift should not mean disregarding our law and legal process.

Agree with FC... absolutely necessary. Besides, anyone living in the US (and many of those that don't) know how quickly lawyers will latch onto any perceived mistreatment or mistakes by the police, regardless of what the suspect did or didn't do. The last thing in the world I want to see is that a terrorist suspect is released because a lawyer was able to prove that the police didn't read him his Miranda rights...

I agree that they shouldn't be killed on sight, if possible. "Swift justice" in my mind means not letting them sit in jail for three years, two years of trial, ten years of appeal, another ten on death row. And since 9/11, terror suspects are treated different, IIRC. You have to remember that all these agencies on local, state, and federal levels know a lot more than CNN/MSNBC/etc does. Hell, at this point, I know more than CNN does. (Example: The "breaking news" alert 15 minutes ago to be on the lookout for a 1999 green Honda was cancelled by headquarters at least 30 minutes prior).

As I type this, a tactical team is in position at a location near the Arsenal Mall.
