I'm really glad they got him alive. Hopefully the police will be able to get the full story out of him. We need to know if anybody else was involved and if there are any other dangerous devices laying around.

Now he gets to spend the rest of his life in prison...knowing where he is headed after he dies.

(Unless he experiences a change of heart, of course. Which is possible.)

They apparently also got three additional people in a residence associated with the bombers - 2 men and one woman. Looks like it's finally over.

Re: Reports of explosions at 2013 Boston Marathon

Residents of Watertown are outside cheering the police.

It's really crazy. I almost moved there two weeks ago...and I used to drive through Watertown everyday before work (up until two weeks ago when I moved closer to work).

The whole experience is surreal. It's weird knowing all the areas under lockdown (including your own home).

I wouldn't cheer too much, he wasn't even in the search area. If he wasn't hurt he could have blown other things up.

On the other hand: he probably got hurt by one of the Watertown police during last night's car chase. The media is reporting that he has a gun-shot wound. *shrugs*

I hadn't heard that, but it's not surprising. I'm sure the police are also going to take a look to see if there are any persons of interest at their mosque.

If they had better aim he would have been dead 20 hours ago.

Well done. When you look at the timeline from the explosion point onward - the death and capture did not take as long as I thought it would. Good detective work, and marvelous help from the public. The legal process from here on in will likely be lengthy.

I feel sorry for the defense attorney that has to take this asshole's case.
