Nah... reddit has proven time and time again to be more informational and useful than any major network out there.

Hey, guys, good news: the second suspect was apprehended alive and is in custody. Just thought you'd want an update.

Hopefully the dude survives, so we can find out what's going on.

Explosion at boston marathon

I'm still curious why they used such a primitive bomb. Could have done far more damage (and were smart enough to put it together).

Unless their actions were aimed to be more symbolic than anything else.

The "In the Red" targets, which aren't strictly tannerite but operate under the same theory will detonate with a low velocity handgun round though
It's all about poundage. ANAL is the home-made explosive of choice in Afghanistan.

Bigger IED means more weight. The attack also reeks of these guys being rank amateurs. They may have packed ten pounds of low-grade homemade low explosive, thought it would be enough, and called it a day.

We also have no idea of the composition of the explosives yet. They may have used a very inefficient explosive, an overly sturdy container, not built it properly for maximum effect, or any number of reasons.

It may have been their tactic. Maybe this was going to be a first attempt and they were planning something bigger for another date.

I love how everyone is saying "let's not politicize this" now that it doesn't fit their narrative

Hey, remember when Obama gave a speech about not jumping to conclusions...then had David Axelrod come out the NEXT DAY and say Obama believes it was related to tax day? Me too.

I dont think these guys are the smartest terrorists out there. They made no attempts to conceal their ID from cameras, they went together, they went and killed a security guard when they could have stayed low, they didnt seem to have an exit plan for the whole thing, etc.....

Dude is a hero

Can't wait to see the replies
+1.

I think LE did an all around piss poor job.

The older brother had an FBI file, but the FBI needed the public's help to identify him in a clear photo? Pathetic. The public should be outraged by the performance of the authorities.

no - I don't believe Obama said that. Axelrod was pontificating on what he thought Obama was thinking.

There's a difference

It would be like me putting words in your mouth based on what I think your thought process is.

In explaining why President Obama didn't call the Boston bombings a "terrorist attack," former adviser David Axelrod said, "I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day"
