The bombing in Boston was an act of terror on the US, the suspects must have been affiliated with Al Qaeda and who knows what they could have done in New York if we didn't catch suspect number two and suspect number one had died. Maybe another 9/11 could have happened potentially, maybe they were saving the bigger bomb for the bigger city. No one knows. The only thing we know is that there must be more people that affiliated with these two kids, and where they are and what they are hiding is out of our control at this point but we will find them eventually. We need to figure out the punishment for suspect number two, and it won't be pleasant thats for sure. I think he should serve life in prison, maximum security, and isolated from everyone else so he has time to think about what he did and how blessed he was to even be in our country in the first place. He needs this time and it would be wrong just to kill him, that is probably what he wants, the easy way out. If they want him to suffer like the 100+ people had to, he needs to be alone. Forever. His friends who have been helping him should have the same penalty and they need to realize what they had gotten themselves into in the first place, they might not have known at the time, or maybe they did, but being apart of an act of terror is a big deal. Why would they do it? No one knows. But we will find out. The search isn’t over and won’t be over until we solve the mystery.
.....BOSTON (AP) — Two bombs exploded in the crowded streets near the finish line of the BostonMarathon on Monday, killing at least three people and injuring more than 140 in a bloody scene of shattered glass and severed limbs that raised alarms that terrorists might have struck again in the U.S.
A White House official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still unfolding said the attack was being treated as an act of terrorism.
President Barack Obama vowed that those responsible will "feel the full weight of justice."
As many as two unexploded bombs were also found near the end of the 26.2-mile course as part of what appeared to be a well-coordinated attack, but they were safely disarmed, according to a senior U.S. intelligence official, who also spoke on condition of anonymity because of the continuing investigation.
The fiery twin blasts took place about 10 seconds and about 100 yards apart, knocking spectators and at least one runner off their feet, shattering windows and sending dense plumes of smoke rising over the street and through the fluttering national flags lining the route. Blood stained the pavement, and huge shards were missing from window panes as high as three stories.
"They just started bringing people in with no limbs," said runner Tim Davey of Richmond, Va. He said he and his wife, Lisa, tried to shield their children's eyes from the gruesome scene inside a medical tent...
On April 15, 2013 during the BostonMarathon in Copley Square, two bombs exploded near the finish line killing at least three and injuring over 170 people. This bombing sent the nation in an uproar and it was immediately recognized as a terrorist attack. When the Federal Bureau of Investigation took over, a few days later a surveillance video and photographs of the two suspects were released.
After the suspects were named, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, 19, and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, the violence began. On Thursday, April 18, three days after the attack, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer, Sean A. Collier, was found dead in his vehicle near the MIT campus. According to police, that same night, two suspects hijacked an SUV at gunpoint, keeping the victim in the car. The victim later escaped and the police tracked the two suspects as they were driving in two vehicles. Between the early hours of 12:00AM and 1:00AM, the brothers are spotted and they engage in a shoot-out with the officers. Tamerlan, the older brother, is killed while the younger brother, Dzhokar, gets away. This is the start of the manhunt that shut down the capital of Massachusetts. After hours of searching for Dzhokar, a resident of Watertown called the police and alerted them that he was in the boat in his backyard. Finally, the Boston capture ended this scary and intense...

... On April 15th, 2013, 117th BostonMarathon took an ugly, sad turn for the worst. I am a reporter for Channel 7 news; I was scheduled to cover the BostonMarathon this year a job I wasn’t too thrilled about since I had no interest in the story. Little did I know this story would change my life and be the most horrific story I would ever cover. I gave the runners some time to cool off before I made my way to the winners to get an interview from each of them. In the middle of my interview with the third place winner I heard a very loud explosion about north of Boylston Street, followed by another explosion just moments later. The Second Explosion caused police to draw their weapons; you can see the look of terror and confusion on their faces as they cleared the street. As I rushed to the side lines I could see massive amount of blood, bodies, and limbs covering the street, an image that will forever haunt me. You can just see the look of fear and anger among the family members and loved ones of the victims’. Everywhere I looked there were people crying, screaming and praying, such a heartbreaking scene and I was right in the middle of it all. So many people lost their lives or loved ones that day, I was lucky enough to escape only with a few scrapes, and horrific heartbreaking memories. This story changed the way I view my life I am grateful for every step I take, it can be taken from you at any time without any...
BostonMarathonBombings: A Legal Interpretation
The two explosions that tore through the BostonMarathon nearly two years ago were like the second starting gun on April 15, 2013, a race against time to identify and capture the terrorists responsible. Bostonians were relived after an extensive manhunt ended in the apprehension of the BostonMarathon suspects, but which raised a host of legal issues including the potential consequence of authorities’ decision not to read Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, how might he be charged due to skewed media bias, and whether his case would be moved outside Boston to ensure a fair trial. The importance of these issues answer many controversial questions regarding the reach of the ambiguous legal system.
April 15, 2013 marked the 117th running of the BostonMarathon, the world’s oldest annual marathon. The event is held on Patriot’s Day, which commemorates the beginning of the Revolutionary War in 1775. At approximately 2:49 PM, with more than 5,600 of some 23,000 runners still in the race, two pressure-cooker bombs – packed with an assortment of “metal and ball-bearings” hidden in backpacks placed amidst the crowd – exploded within seconds of each other near the finish line (Leger). Chaos ensued as three spectators died: a 23-year-old woman, a 29-year-old woman and an...
The bombing of BostonMarathon is now the issue about which all people are talking about. It turned to be the theme of many discussions in mass media, transportation means and even at home. Looking much deeper upon that terroristic attack, we shall find some questions need to be answered regarding this issue. The policy of the U.S should be revised concerning their seeking for those terrorists. The whole issue started when two bombs struck near the finish line of the BostonMarathon, turning the prepared celebrations into a bloody scene of destruction. According to what was said by Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, the death toll had been three. Scores were injured at the scene. One of the dead was an 8-year-old boy, according to a state law enforcement source. Hospitals reported at least 144 people are being treated. At least eight of the patients are children. At least 10 people injured had limbs amputated, was treated by "serial operations" later on. Some injuries were so severe amputations were necessary. This all because of two mad young brothers vowed to protect and respect America and praised Allah to bless it.
Some words are there about police deep failure said by many Americans connecting it to the failure of the CIA and FBI to prevent the 9/11 attacks, even though many of the perpetrators were known to...
...BostonMarathon bombs: when was the moment of radicalisation for the Tsarnaev brothers?
One was a pot-loving student, the other had begun exploring Islam in an effort to turn his life around. So how did Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev end up at the BostonMarathon finishing line with a willingness to kill?

As they hunched over the twisted bomb parts and pieces of shrapnel, some still bloody from where they cut through flesh, the FBI technicians were finding a grimly familiar pattern.
Elbow pipes from common plumbing systems. Specially-picked rounded bearings and nails of a short but disfiguring length. Gunpowder, cannibalised from the kind of large but everyday fireworks readily on sale in most American states.
The precise ingredients used by the Boston bombers had been selected with rigid fealty to the instructions laid out in Inspire, al-Qaeda's online magazine which offers would-be jihadists around the world a simple path to improvising explosives.

The close attention the Tsarnaev brothers appear to have paid to Inspire's detailed instructions has given new urgency to America's hunt for its editor, an unknown Islamist who goes by the name "Yahya Ibrahim".
