    They had a reason, they set off a bomb in a crowd.  It would be easy to find 12 to convict on terrorism charges.  They don't have to come out making demands or be part of a bigger group.  And actually, if they take the guy alive they should charge him with terrorism.  I'm sure they can find cause to make those charges.  (assuming they take him alive)

      of course, new evidence could be uncovered that changes that dynamic, but as of now I've heard zero evidence that they carried out the bombings to further a social or political goal.

      sometimes people simply are fucking off their rocker for no larger purpose at all.  This could very well be one of those cases.

        I think it's looking more likely that there was a political angle to the bombing, but we don't know for sure.  When I woke this morning to the news coverage of the manhunt,  and I heard that they were looking for two college age guys  near the MIT campus, the first thing I thought of was Leopold and Loeb.  Two bright young sociopaths plotting the perfect crime.
