    They need to identify as many Chechens as possible and search their homes and businesses, first.

    No, some Chechens earned your enmity. Others did not. What you've done in generalize an entire group of people because of what some of them did to you and your friends. It's sad. It's incredibly sad and adds nothing but more irrational hate into the world. If you have a problem with the people who hurt you, fine. But to hold an entire ethnicity responsible for the actions of a particular group with in them is nonsensical, at best. I am so sick of people acting like its rational to hate entire ethnicities and races because some people within that race or ethnicity did horrible things. It's not rational. That's the kind of irrationality that gets people killed.

    Yeah, but I'm betting that they're probably wasting time with too much caution.

    I think they're wasting time going door-to-door, too. Tommy O'Malley probably isn't helping this dude...lol Now, Vlademir Drijdnich? They need to have already knocked on his door.

    You really think that was a possibility? You think that they may have had the capability to take out an entire block, but chose to do a couple of pressure cooker bombs on Monday instead, holding on to the big one just in case they found themselves corned and unable to take out two or three dozen cops with their rifles and pipe bombs - as a backup plan they could jump into the car and if the police stopped them THEN set off the big one.

    Well the longer they do the more damage THEY themselves do. Its a balancing act I think. I don't think they want to go past tomorrow evening or they start accumulating more problems. I disagree with donsutherland1 on this one, speed is of essence.

    I'm purdy sure that ALL the Chechen fighters, that went to the sandbox, have earned his enmity.

    Some posts that were drawn from the rampant speculation on the social media to highlight the speculative nature of that content:

    [cut for space]

    Those posts are not the fault of members. They reflect the actual questionable reliability of the sources of the information on which they relied.

    Social media is not vetted for accuracy. It provides raw information of questionable quality, some good, some not good. There is a highly speculative element involved where twitter feeds, etc., have distributed conclusions that simply could not be drawn from the combination of few facts and great uncertainty involved.

    In short, one should be extremely cautious about assuming that tweeted information or references to information taken from police scanners (often missing the underlying context for those simply hearing it to properly understand what is actually being described) is accurate. If or when the search is concluded, Law Enforcement will provide an account.
    From what I've seen, social media has been just as reliable as regular media. Some of the info has turned out to be accurate while some of it has turned out to be inaccurate. The same goes with the mainstream media. Today, people on social networks reported that the suspect was in custody. Two days ago CNN did the same thing. I haven't really seen a significant difference in the quality of reporting.

    I believe they're approaching the point where it's going to be time to completely pull back and let this dude relax and show himself.

    As long as the only people on the streets are cops, this guy is staying put; unless he's already skipped town and ain't lookin' back.

    Sounds like the motive that was behind the infamous Mitchell Palmer raids of 1919.

    Once again, these are 19 and 20 year olds. One has already suicided by cop, I'm pretty sure that wasn't part of the plan. The kid is flying by the seat of his pants and he's obviously not full of good judgement right now.

    Also, there's mention of a possible suicide vest being associated with the brother on CNN right now.
