    You didn't even try to answer my question. Tell me what they're supposed to do instead. Not use helicopters? Not set up a perimeter? It's a fucking active manhunt, it's not precautionary. They cannot allow this shithead to get away. That would be the height of irresponsibility.

    And I strongly, strongly object to the use of the term "cower" in this instance.

    Thanks to the internet, bullshit now travels at the speed of light.

    •  That's not the problem (0+ / 0-)

      The problem is the "suggestion" that people, even far from Watertown/Cambridge, stay off the street.  What could be more enouraging to a would be "terrorist" than seeing that he could shutdown an entire city long after the attack.

      Keep the TVA public.

        9/11 was how many years ago?

        And it's not after the attack, since they're still tossing explosives and shooting cops.

        As long as we don't go and invade Chechnya, or whereever, I think America is going to make it through this okay. We've got big problems, but a manhunt for a known murderer just ain't one of em.

        I notice you still....still....haven't suggested what you might do tactically in response to the situation as it's unfolded that's different.

        •  This was not 9/11 (0+ / 0-)

          Although the media coverage would suggest otherwise.  As I'm sure any nut who can construct a bomb will see.

          I said the difference I have is with the "lockdown."

            what would do differently, for third or fourth time?

              Paleo makes the absurd claim that this is next step to a police state, still haven't seen a single suggestion as to how this should be handled differently.
              There's one or more terrorists on the lose in the area with explosives and they still don't know where he/they are.

              And you know that the suspect(s) haven't moved beyond Watertown/Cambridge yet...how?  Cuz I still haven't heard that he/they have been caught yet despite the massive search.
