Ding dong! One of the twitchy bitches is dead and the other is in custody. My beloved city of Boston can sleep easy once again.
We listened to the action live thru a police scanner streaming online. It was exciting and terrifying. Thinking of the neighborhood being evacuated, the fear of the homeowner who called police about suspicious activity at their boat; and then learning that the murdering terrorist was hiding in their own backyard. And had probably been in the neighborhood all day long.
The moment the scanner announced “Suspect in Custody” was some of the best words we’ve heard in a very long time. Thankfully we went to bed before P.BO gave his speech; just don’t think we could have dealt with listening to him say “I” and “me” more than giving credit where it is due.
To the LEOs of Boston, Watertown, Cambridge, the State Police and the FBI. Those men & women likely didn’t get any rest or sleep from Monday afternoon until sometime today. Tirelessly working to bring these monsters to justice.
And I find it very interesting that, once the suspect was in custody, he was given the best medical care possible – from the very people he and his brother killed, the first responders.
That’s what being American is all about. An ideal that clearly escaped these terrorists.
Of course I am under no illusion that this is “over”; they didn’t act alone. Someone was their puppetmaster who viewed them as expendable from the start. These 2 had no escape plan; hell one of them was partying with his college friends 2 days after the bombing. The plot is always thick; it will be interesting to see just how thick in the coming weeks.
