Boston suburbs on lockdown amid terror search

WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) - One of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing is dead after the killing of a university officer and a shootout with police, and a massive manhunt is underway for the other, authorities said early Friday.

Police are locking down some neighborhoods in Boston and its western suburbs as they search for the remaining suspect: known as the man in the white hat from marathon surveillance footage.

Authorities urged residents in Watertown, Newton, Waltham, Belmont, Cambridge and the Allston-Brighton neighborhoods of Boston to stay indoors. All mass transit was shut down and businesses were asked not to open Friday. People waiting at bus and subway stops were told to go home.

"We believe this to be a terrorist," said Boston Police Commissioner Ed David of the suspect on the loose. "We believe this to be a man who's come here to kill people. We need to get him in custody."

The Middlesex district attorney said the two men are suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer on campus in Cambridge late Thursday, then stealing a car at gunpoint and later releasing its driver unharmed.

Hours earlier, police had released photos of the marathon bombing suspects and asked for the public's help finding them. A new photo of the suspect on the loose was released later showing him in a grey hoodie sweatshirt. It was taken at a 7-Eleven in Cambridge, just across the Charles River from Boston.

"I wonder how many Bostonians are for gun control now?" Little if anything will change in that regard. The hallmark of liberalism is the failure to learn from experience.

I wonder how many of the fine liberal folks in Boston and the suburbs are wishing they had a handgun or shotgun in their homes this morning.

Boston Lockdown Shows Impotence of Militarized Police
Posted on April 19, 2013 by Robert Farago

No disrespect to the law enforcement officers chasing after terrorist Dzhokar Tsarnaev. They’re doing what cops gotta do. But let’s think about this. A few thousand heavily armed cops are chasing after one guy with a million-plus Bay Staters in lockdown. The bad guy’s image is all over the media. Mass transit? Shut down. Businesses? Closed. Colleges, schools? Empty. Street traffic? Non-existent. And yet Tsarnaev’s nowhere to be found.

When the “authorities” order people to stay inside their homes and shut down a commuter railway, does that sound like martial law? Do they have the authority to order someone not to come outside?

I suspect it’s like being ordered to evacuate when a huricane is coming. Up to you if you leave or stay.

Now I see they’ve got the military (NG) out on the streets. Coming soon to intersections in our neighborhoods.

Now they got a Blackhawk ferrying people in. Men in military uniform using military equipment and trained at military bases, like those who drove the tanks at Waco, are MILITARY against civilians.
