Now, maybe we aught to close our borders?

Wow!! You don't mess with the U.S.. I am in awe of our police and FBI. Let's hope suspect #2 is caught without any more harm to the innocent.

HS Fan: I agree. But also the citizens in the area who called in tips deserve some kudos for this unbelievably quick location of the suspects!

The cell phone and mobile cameras that people use due to freedoms are an amazing tool when used for the correct reason. Thanks to citizens that just happened to be there and using their cameras on this occasion. Not all of these people were young, just youthful in enjoying the Marathon for many good reasons, people they know were there.

This was due to very good coordination with the FBI, local and state police organizations and the citizens providing information, most of it good for the investigation.

Thanks to all.

How will we ever know they are guilty?
Something seems fishy

How ironic -- considering a mistake clearly was made when these two brothers were admitted into this country -- that literally minutes from now, the Senate will be considering the Gang of Eight's immigration "reform" bill which within six months (despite Marco Rubio's brazen denials to the contrary) would formally grant legal residency status to tens of millions of illegal aliens who in fact have demonstrated by their actions that they do not respect this nation nor its citizens.

But a successful propaganda campaign has falsely shamed Americans into silent submission to the Gang of Eight's surrender of U.S. sovereignty that they dare not open their mouths in dissent.

How "compassionate" of them.

26 and 19. They were practically still kids. How could someone become a monster so young? What a shame.

Oh my gosh. Really? What seems fish?

"But a successful propaganda campaign has falsely shamed Americans into silent submission "

Silent submission? What are you talking about?

What world do you people live in?

The backstory is emerging that these boys came here as refugees ten years ago. Their parents are still in Russia. (Shame on us for separating families.)
They apparently did not assimilate well.
There are reports that the older one got a green card back in 2009 and had a domestic violence rap sheet from 2011, probably not enough of a record to get him deported at that time.
The question is going to be their involvement with terrorist cells. This would be an extreme reaction from two boys working alone.
Political correctness has been a hindrance to investigations in the past.

How did they become monsters at such a young age? Read the remarks of the father. It seems clear he not only knew about and approved of his sons' actions, but is cut from the same bolt of cloth. It wouldn't surprise me to learn the family sent them here for just this task and collaborated with them in planning it.

Outlaw pressure cookers. Please pass a bill demanding an extensive background check on ALL people ASSOCIATED with pressure cookers. The Constitution does NOT protect people bearing pressure cookers. Stop them NOW.

What a bitter disappointment for the left wing press: surveillance cameras actual have value (ACLU take note.), the terrorists were not tea party members and the NRA was not involved.

If these were NRA members the liberal media would be all over that.

And yet they'll downplay the Muslim aspect as much as possible.

This is called locking the barn door after the animals have left. We allow anyone to walk into this homeland and basically do as they please, we jump to meet their demands and satisfy their desires, and then we really wonder why things like this take place. And when they DO happen, rather than stopping the influx of unknowns and miscreants, we rush to the other side of the planet and spend hundreds of billions trying to change their cultures and ways of life. We have to be some of the slowest learners in the history of the world.

WE did not separate them - they came here and separated themselves - shame on you for your misplaced blame

I guess it was pure coincidence I correctly guessed the religious background of these terrorists.

I was told on these boards many times yesterday I was wrong and that it was likely a right wing crazy.

You better believe if these were NRA card carrying Christians, that would be the focus of this story in the liberal media.

But they're Muslims. So we'll downplay that as much as possible.

Okay, now that some are calling for closing our borders, then we must close our borders to everyone and send everyone who is here right now on a visa back to where they came from. Again, that should be everyone, not just the ones people think are Muslim.

By the way, Cris B: There are hundreds of Muslims in Norway, and yet it was one of their own that killed the innocent there. Wonder why that is? And I have to assume you have stopped watching and supporting those sports whose atheletes have converted to Muslim, and would support kicking those particular Americam Muslims out of the US??

Doesn't anyone know how to shoot without killing? You need to find everyone these people know, and dead people are difficult to question. Start with "angel boy's" father.

"Okay, now that some are calling for closing our borders, then we must close our borders to everyone and send everyone who is here right now on a visa back to where they came from."

That is a misrepresentation designed to justify the illegitimate villification of those who disagree with you: Most illegal immigration opponents are fine with legal immigration and don’t want CLOSED borders - they want CONTROLLED borders. And yes; that applies to immigrants from anywhere. And yes; if they are here ILLEGALLY, they should go home and start over with a LEGAL process.

Third try screen name says "Their parents are still in Russia. (Shame on us for separating families.)" No they were here with their mother who is now in jail for theft. No one separated them from their parents. The boys were granted citizenship.
