    Boggles the mind.

    One teenager who was just 25-30 feet away from dozens of cops last night...with hundreds more in the area... and they can't find him with the FBI, National Guard, SWAT and practically every officer in the state there to help.

    Huh?

    This is the kind of thing you'd see in a movie and say, "uh... yeah right. Like one guy is really going to shut down the entire city"

If this one is killed, we will never know, and that bothers me! On the other hand, if he's guilty of this horrific crime, fry him!
    He may not provide an opportunity for conversation. He's guilty of at least a murder, or an accessory to murder. He can always surrender. I would like to know his motivations and supporters. Other than that, I have no use for his life, and apparently he doesn't either.

    Meanwhile, half the Chechen population will become increasingly convinced that the two "kids" were framed by the American police and FBI because they needed a quick and easy scapegoat for the bombings. Especially if this kid dies, too.

    That'll bring the radical Chechen Islamists' ire to America full force.

    Yeah, the reporting mentioned that even though they didn't do a suicide bombing, the brother at least seemed to be going for suicide by cop last night. Not sure which way the younger brother will go.

    And all out of fear that this 19-year-old boy might have another pressure cooker full of nails and BBs.

    What a tough lot we are.

    For their sake, I almost hope there's a much bigger picture to all this than we know.
    I don't think it makes them look bad. More like, it points out the reality of what one motivated person can do. Just imagine is if it was 20.

    Hey,
    From what i read, seen and heard (and as being a Russian myself) i can testify that those feelings among Russians are indeed true.

    Cheers,

    Exactly. This only makes the FBI look bad that they can't seem to wrap this all up in a neat package in one hour like on the network TV shows. We're suffering the CSI effect.

    If he come rootin' around my spread, he better be able to throw that pressure cooker fast, because I'm going to bus'-a-cap in his ass.
