Yeah, that video is just bizarre. The dead are barely in the ground, injured are still in the hospital, it's kinda unseemly to be joyously celebrating in the streets.

I should also add that the whole "let's go Boston," "we mourn for Boston" thing has kinda rubbed me the wrong way. How about vocally supporting specifically the victims and their families, instead. A city is a granfalloon. There are a couple million people in Boston that have nothing to do with the bombing and will barely be affected. Instead, we have people singing "Sweet Caroline" in the streets because their area code and cheering for the Red Sox are the only things they have in common.

For those who missed it, nothing in the world says "Boston Irish" better than empty potato sacks and a massive police presence.

I can guarantee you every single victim of the bombings & their relatives would have been celebrating in the streets with everyone else if they could have been. If you genuinely feel that celebrating the end to this 5 day long terror filled nightmare was wrong; you're a douche.

"Boston Strong" is kinda a lame slogan, though.

It's pretty weird to wake up 4 days after bombs went off where you, & many of your friends & family could have been, to find your city on lockdown after the 2 dudes who set off the bombs decided to play GTA In Real Life & one of them is on the loose. And by lockdown I mean no public transportation, no taxi service, & orders to "shelter in place". Add to that the constant news coverage and I don't think "terror filled nightmare" is all that overly dramatic in describing what most Bostonians were feeling.

The celebrations after #2 was caught was an expression of relief. Feel free to be a douche about it, though. For some of you with verying degrees of success at attempts at being an **** on an internet forum, I understand it's probably all you have to cling to. Whatever makes you feel better, I suppose.

Drinking heavily & hugging strangers sure helped me!

Honestly, I think it had more with the rest of the city being pretty much completely devoid of local & state police while they were all in Watetertown while Homeland Security held the fort in the city. Shelter in place was more so the cops didn't have to deal with anything else while they all worked together to do 1 thing, which they almost didn't do. Overreaction? Sure. But no one in the city is complaining, since they got him.

It was a really weird day at work as I took a Cab in around noon when they opened back up, the highway & streets were almost completely empty, about 5 restaurants within walking distance could even open due to staff not being able to get in (You could drive in, but all the garages in the city were closed), 1 Dunkin' Donuts, & 1 7/11 were all that were open at all.

Relief from what? Fear of being a victim of #2? Pretty unlikely scenario really.

Or relief that it only took only a bajillion heavily armed police/FBI/CIA/ whoever the **** all those guys in black were, to catch a couple of amateur dumbfux...?

Honestly, to have a whole city to go into a spasm of fear like that and then to burst into that ridiculous display of pavlovian patriotism as evidenced in the video just looks **** bizzarre.

Not being a douche, just making the observation.

Thats the point it isn't right.

I mean sh*t...this kid hasn't even been proven guilty. He has been deemed as such because of your media.
A city wide lock down by your military for a 19 year old kid, who may or may not have done anything.
Heck they might not even be able to charge him because he has never been read his rights, and if he says anything now that incriminates himself it would be inadmissible evidence.


Truly it is a fool that gives his rights and freedoms and expects to be free.

(I assume mission success as well, the man now knows he can shut down any major city and you people will just accept it as commonplace.)


I mean all is right with the world, yet thousands are killed every year walking to work by acts just like this.
The very same day 55 died in Iraq, that kind of thing happens every day.

The world isn't right.

And the fact that you react this way to the death of 3, yet in the same week shoot down protections from gun violence, goes to show the world is not right.

If the world was right, would this have happened in the first place?

If by "did" nothing, you mean is seen placing one of the bags at the feet of the 8 year old he killed. He also got into two shootouts with police, {3 if he shot the MIT cop)}, & threw IEDs at them. He can be charged without being read his miranda rights, they just need to know if there were other bombs first. Sure, anything he says cant be used to convict him, but the evidence collected due to those statements certainly can.

What freedoms did we give away? We weren't **** to cops for four days & happily assisted them in any way possible so they could catch the guys that tried to ruin our god **** holiday. I'm sure even Toronto would be shut down if after a bombing, the guys went out & shot up the city, threw some bombs around, & then 1 of them escaped.

They killed 4 & injured 180. Of those 180, I think in the neighborhood of 12 lost appendages. However these two **** got their guns may lead to some sort of new regulation regarding guns in Mass, but we're already heavily regulated, so they probably got them through illegal means anyways. Not everything in the world is right, but the wicked will be punished & there will be justice. All is right in our neck of the woods for the moment and I can get married next week with virtually no risk of some **** trying to blow me up for whatever stupid reason he had for doing so.

Awesomsauce. I'm sorry if what I feel was a very, very good thing **** in your cheerios?

We literally all felt like victims? I know Boston seems to be ground zero for St. Patty'd day, but believe it or not Patriot's Day is a big **** deal here. It's our holiday. For me, it meant getting up & heading down to Copley to cheer on strangers that have the ability to do something that I'll never be able to do. Run 26.2 miles, on purpose, & sometimes up long hills. The Red Sox play early, so you get up early {or if you work overnights like I do - you stay up} so you're drinking my 9:30a - 10a.

You watch the Red Sox game, drink some more, then head down & cheer on the marathoners. Not the ones that win it, mind you, but you're friends that take in the 4-6hr range. If you keep drinking, you eat, then usually head down towards Copley. Drink & cheer some more. Then, there's hockey, or drinking with friends. Sometimes I've had relatives & friends to meet & cheer on as well. I've had two cousins and an uncle run it. Maybe a dozen co-wokers, couple of friends.

This is my first year in the last 5 or 6 years that I wasn't somewhere in and around where the bombs went off in. At 3pm, you can usually walk around that area, since the winners are all in. Everyone you know could have been a victim. And for 10 seconds we were.

Despite the shutdown, we were all glued to the tv much as you were. My job doesn't shutdown though, so I went in. Only one guest was upset there was nothing to do besides walk around and go to a couple of restaurants. I shrugged & went back to spamming f5 on Reddit & Boston.com and chain smoking cigarettes for 8 hours. After the T opened back up, I went home & got in just in time for his capture.

It was **** awesome - not because of the G.I. Joe aspect, but because it was **** over. We were safe again. Now it's time for the conspiracy theorists, have fun with that. I don't give a **** why he did it, what he did personally insulted every person in this area, and he can go **** himself.

The G.I. Joe Aspect was kinda cool though. If this was some sort of coordinated attack, they would have had their asses kicked. But it was just two guys, nothing too crazy.

Your "team" ever win a championship? It was kinda like that, but the team was Cops, First Responders, Internet geeks, and pretty much every person who wasn't one of these two jerks. And You, RDMCandie & Paulsol apparently?

Why do the Ameri-haters all come running here to sling insults whenever there is a tragedy. There are 300 million people in this country - once in a while one or two of them are going to go **** on the public. Was law-enforcement over-zealous in their attempts to capture the bad guys? Sure. But did they harm other civilians or stomp on others civil rights? No. Not really. They shot up a guys boat.

Was Boston's celebratory mood after the capture inappropriate? Maybe. Maybe not. Why care so much?

I could write it off that they're expressing joy that their city is still in tact, their transportation running again and their cell towers turned back on - oh and it's likely that no more Bostonians will be losing limbs or lives to IED's in the near future. They helped each one another through a tragedy. Gees you shoulda seen the place when the Red Sox won the series.

My son, who lives very close to the original bombing scene, called me twice in one week. That alone is worth a celebration.

I don't even really agree with this. I'm not sure why I'm supposed to gasp and swoon that you'd use an armored vehicle in attempting to apprehend people who detonated two bombs and (from reports) the first one killed was throwing some sort of explosive during the fight. Or that the SWAT guys would (oh no!) have scary looking helmets and vests.

Cheers to the people who stayed inside for the day when requested. These days it seems hard enough to get people to pull over for an ambulance if it's going to momentarily inconvenience them much less stay out of the picture and let the police do their job.

I'm ok with the armored vehicle. I just think there were A LOT of law enforcement in one place.

Other area's had to have been lacking.

If someone would have been on top of things they'd have used that law enforcement vacuum to pull off a heist in elsewhere.

I have no idea what the ratio was of local, state and federal authorities or how many men the Boston area can muster (calling everyone in, no days off, long shifts) so I guess I don't have an informed opinion about any law enforcement vacuums. I know Chicago sent a few guys to assist (I'm guessing some sort of specialists and not six beat cops); I assume the more local communities/cities sent men to help as well.

Barely related, there was a road flooded near me this past week and the cops had it blocked off for four days with a cop in a car parked across the road. Guessing there was another car on the other side of the hill, I was thinking "That's 192 hours of cops just sitting in their cars staring off into space and serving as a human roadblock." I wonder what you do for 8+ hours in your car. Catch up on paperwork?

I didn't. Our friends who live in Watertown didn't. You know what we all felt like? Like there was a good reality TV show on and the side we were rooting for won. That's what you saw. "Yay! My person won American Terrorist Idol!" not "Horay we are now safe and have closure!"

It's ok to admit it. It's not "too soon". It was a massive overreaction that worked out well. It was fun to watch. Enjoyable. People enjoyed watching the manhunt and the resolution. Pretending there was some deeper ethical reason for cheering at the end is banal and lazy.

Meh. In a hostage situation, sure. Too look for an armed fugitive, I think we could probably find a point beyond "let's wait for him to turn himself in" but before "let's shut the city down" that would be Pareto efficient.

I never really viewed Ugly as an "Ameri-Hater". I just thought that he believed in Canadian superiority. And maybe not even necessarily Canadian superiority so much as his own personal superiority.

Especially odd since Canada would react in essentially the same way. I guess if you send RCMP ERT somewhere they make tea and wear blindfolds to avoid infringing on anyone's rights where FBI HRT eats children and shoots puppies. Also the idea that Canadians would stand up against government asking them to remain indoors during a crisis is beyond ludicrous. They motto of Canada should be "we might not always like it, but we do what we're told, eh?"

I didn't. Our friends who live in Watertown didn't. You know what we all felt like? Like there was a good reality TV show on and the side we were rooting for won. That's what you saw. "Yay! My person won American Terrorist Idol!" not "Horay we are now safe and have closure!"

It's ok to admit it. It's not "too soon". It was a massive overreaction that worked out well. It was fun to watch. Enjoyable. People enjoyed watching the manhunt and the resolution. Pretending there was some deeper ethical reason for cheering at the end is banal and lazy.
Somehow this doesn't really impress me as being representative of the classic Bostonian urbanite.

Well you would know, I guess. You have lied here most of your life and interacted with people in Boston. Shouldn't you be out raking lobsters out of your garden?

It'd be the biggest riot Canada has ever seen.

You're eating too many salty foods, that's why you attracted deer ticks. If you start eating more butter you will be able to flush the lobsters out of hiding in the azaleas.
