    ...instead of trying to capture whomever was in the boat, just blasted the holy living shit out of the boat, presumably until they got tired or ran out of ammo.

    The boat is totally destroyed. Tsarnaev is only alive to interrogate by pure blind luck (and law enforcement incompetence).

      it would be more fatigue and adrenaline.  Remember one cop was already dead, and another one was still in serious condition.

      Other law enforcement officials said the shooting may have been prompted by the chaos of the moment and some action that led the officers to believe Tsarnaev had fired a weapon or was about to detonate explosives.
      They wanted them alive, they did their best to do that under the circumstances. They had the elder brother in custody; until the younger one ran him over and killed him.
