Re: Officer shot and killed at MIT...

Just watching the CNN feed and they just showed an image that is quite haunting. Let's see if I can find it.

I'm not sure if I really care about the who is doing this. Now it's more why is this happening. This is some crazy crazy stuff. This might turn into the worst week in history of this country, considering this was also the week that featured the Virgina Tech shooting and Columbine.

Also, I know 9/11 is the worst day of our history, but I'm talking more about overall week with things happening every day. This has been a terrible week.

Re: Officer shot and killed at MIT...

I have this on in the background and it seems like a scene from MIT has escalated into an entire town manhunt. Talks about explosions, people in custody and then being released, detonations, gunshots. So much happening, so much to digest. I can't believe what's going on this week. What the hell is wrong with this world.

Re: Officer shot and killed at MIT...

The Boston Globe is reporting that these are the Boston Marathon bombers, one in custody, the other on the loose...

The suspects have Hindi names - I wonder what their motives are?

According to one internet source, they've got one! Won't be long before they get the second. Scum! I hope you get some answers from them.

One of them was suffering from depression apparently. Everyone suspected he had killed himself, he decided to kill other people instead.

You'd hope he was. No way would a rational person do this.

Re: Officer shot and killed at MIT...

I looked up the two suspects.

I also was told that another pressure cooker bomb was found at the chaotic scene in Watertown.

With all the chaos, does this remind anyone of "Fringe"?

Re: Officer shot and killed at MIT...

The news played audio of a shootout, it sounds like complete war. It's insane.

And it's not official linked to the marathon bombings.

An article and video from last month about his disappearance. I feel sorry for his family who seem very loving.
