    I would like to know what the FBI did yesterday afternoon once the photos were released and classmates especially recognized them.

    The two suspects seem to have had a lot of freedom (after photos released) until the MIT officer was shot.

    No dragnet or anything in Watertown where they lived in the hours after photos released. I would assume neighbors recognized them immediately from photos and would have passed on an address.

    From 5:30 on last night until shooting is a mystery.

      It seemed like it took them awhile. I heard some interviewed who thought it was the missing Brown student and were surprised it looked like their friend, etc. These things happen - people have trouble (cognitive dissonance) realizing who it is if it's someone they'd not expect.

      a nationwide response, I'll bet. Even with facial-rec software that takes time. This is not television, where you compress the investigation to fit between the ads.

    •  they lived in Cambridge, not Watertown (0+ / 0-)

      if I've got my facts & my geography right, those are adjacent but not the same neighborhood.

      They may have been in the early stages of setting something up and then all hell broke loose.

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