Now that this is over .... does anyone see what I see?

An entire city ... WAIT - SEVERAL cities, completely locked down ..... just for ONE guy. NOT a good image to project to terrorists in the world. Makes us look pretty weak.

Sadly, my gut tells me this attack was only the beginning ...

Hope I'm wrong.

Will he be given legal representation and eventually face a trial by jury? I feel strongly that he should. We must remain “a nation of laws, not of men,” (quoting John Adams). What John Adams was rebuking by this statement was "democracy" (which in its barest essential form [I.E., in its most pure form] is merely mob rule).

Yes. I also see a good reason for citizens to have assault weapons. And of course we are going to have to outlaw assualt pressure cookers.
Great job by fed and local leos.

people can no longer be trusted with pressure cookers of any kind without proper backgrounds checks and of course the lic. fee's to carry them.

It is now time for the various politicians to line up and give their oratories. Will any of them give thanks to the Judeo-Christian God?

Sorry but I don't really see the "image" problem. This incident was carried out by people who apparently believed they wouldn't get caught, and were planning to do more. A little over 4 days later and they get a completely different outcome. Time missed at work can be made up; sporting events can be rescheduled; heck, Bill O'Reilly was advising people to plan to vacation in Boston. I'd take the lockdown any day to get the outcome that was achieved.

And I don't really want to get into the gun debate, but I don't see how this incident can be appropriated to argue in favor of assault weapons for civilians. Assault weapons wouldn't have prevented the bombings, and AFAIK there weren't any civilian casualties after that, so I don't really see the connection. It's hard to see how the job done by law enforcement personnel could have been done more effectively (though obviously it would have been best if there had been no casualties). Having civilians using assault weapons in a semi-urban environment outside the tactical decisions and chain-of-command of law enforcement seems like a recipe for creating problems that did not arise here. I'm not trying to generalize this to every hypothetical scenario - I'm just saying it doesn't seem to follow from what actually happened here.

Now the creep has been caught we will patch him up, slap his wrist and like lefty Angela Davis or O's buddy Bill Ayers he will be invited onto the faculty of Harvard to lecture on right wing political evils. However, there is a difference between Angela, Bill and his guy in that they never hid in a boat and Bill used more sophisticated fragmentation bombs and of course Bill looks better in ear rings. So as a visiting scholar (HA) he looks more with it when he lectures our youth. So I suppose there is a difference.

Upcoming, the DOJ releases him as he was not read his rights and the public safety exception was not properly executed. Then MSNBC will interview him about how he was abused in some way and naturally the obligatory spot on Oprah. He already has three hat vendor promo deals ready to sign as soon as he leaves hospital. Sadly, this will be followed by an unfortunate fatal car accident before he can revel that he was working for the govt. YAWN, this is getting boring. However, he was a useful idiot in that now DHS can redouble their size, order another 5 billion rounds of illegal ammo and like Seattle, take over all major cities. It's a new Amerika we must all adjust.

When your goal is a totalitarian state democracy, you "never let a good crisis go to waste". Quoting famous words from the LEFT.

Certainly the evil has been stopped and for that I am thankful. My daughter lives in Boston....has for many years now. I think she said what many feel: "My city is wounded". Boston in a people place and those people make the city.

Mind you, I am a peaceful guy. I think most wars could be skipped. I think killing is wrong, but, if there had been a "weapon malfunction" and a hellfire missile was sent into that boat.... I don't think it would have bothered me much. I'd have given the missile man a paid week off to be retrained on which button was the safety & let it go.

Yay! I am glad the people of Mass can rest easier now. But now we all get to pay for him to stay in a luxury prison and talk to fancy lawyers who will no doubt claim he is innocent. Then we'll get to watch him on TV more as his trial drags on and on and on for years. They'll ban all pressure cookers, nails, ball bearings. You'll need a licence to buy building supplies, bearings for your car. They'll somehow get a gun ban related to the pressure cooker ban. Should've put a bullet in this kid's head.
