    These are kids. At 19, even the best plan is going to be flawed and incomplete. There are details that aren't even on their radar. My take: they spent all this time planning the actual exposive event with great detail and bought into the movie version of escape afterwards. The older one chose SBC (suicide by cop) when their afterplan quickly fell apart, the younger just ran.

    Btw, easier for a single individual making random choices to avoid capture than a coordinated group.

    I don't know that there are that many factors to consider when one of your primary suspects drives right past you in a car.

    Exactly and he's making them do that very thing, which means, at this point, he has the upper-hand.

    No, I don't think so, I think something else of their plan fell apart. Maybe they relied on promised help that did not come though. Or some other mishap. Its usually something stupid and generally innocuous that screws the pooch on an operation. I've had to deal with Chechens, they never struck me as the type that waiver easily.

    if he had the upper hand he and his brother would have been planting another pressure cooker bomb somewhere in boston. instead one is dead and the other is running for his life from the law.

    Then you need to turn off the serial TV shows. C'mon, the first fellow commits SBC, these are bombers, they had plenty of material in their homes, even reducing it to "drives right past you", which of course is an oversimplification, he could have a trunk full of explosives that would take out the block.

    In the movies, yes. In real life, rarely.

    Exactly why this is making more upset with each hour that goes by. This is just embarrassing.

    Not only that they have to check for explosive devices which slows things up immensely even more.
