    The Boston Marathon terrorists were Massachusetts citizens and brothers.

    They weren't disgruntled middle aged white right wingers like I first thought. I jumped to that conclusion and with good reason, conditioning. Now we've got another category of terrorists and it appears these are of a home grown variety. The one punk they are still looking for came here when he was 9 years old. Now I'll do some more guessing-he probably looked up to that bigger brother of his (who he just ran over trying to flee) and would have done anything his older brother wanted. I have 3 older brothers and 2 younger but they are useless and only did things to benefit themselves including screwing over my father when he was dying from cancer, but I digress, OOPS. So far everyone who knew these 2 said they were nice guys and no one would have guessed they'd ever do something like this. We can't seem to go a month without something deadly happening in this country. Living in, near or around a big northeast corridor city you always have a certain amount of trepidation, mistrust and weariness of certain surrounding and individual but since 911 there's even more #$%$ that plays like constant noise in the background. I went to the Philly Auto Show a few months ago and was amazed at how little security there was, no metal detectors etc. I found myself thinking about the potential for an attack several times. When I get on the train to NYC I think about it, especially going through the tunnel before you get into Penn Station. IT SUCKS to worry about this #$%$ all the time, but it doesn't stop me from doing things. Old age is doing that.

    • NJ, I don't know exactly how you define home grown, but there a lot of unanswered questions. If these two did have guns, grenades, explosives on their bodies and the ingratiates to build all of this where did they get it? Did they have sponsors? Did those two live alone? Those are a few of the questions on the hardware. As for the software, these two seemed to have a pretty good existence here with the one boy attending a prestigious high school. So what or who polluted their minds? Are there others that helped indoctrinate them? Why did their father go back to Central Asia? Why did the Uncle have no contact with his brothers family? (Is he lieing) Did either of them spend time abroad? And of course what motivated them to do this?

      • Those are all good questions but unfortunately the answers will never be good ones, just sick twisted rationalizations from truly evil or broken brains. If they were robbing a 7-11 or whatever store it was, I don't think they were "financed" but anything is possible. As far as the uncle not talking to his brother, those things can always be twisted to look suspicious once an event like this has happened. I haven't talked to or seen my oldest brother since 1975 and I'm not lying or a terrorist but if something were to happen it could be twisted into something other than the fact that my brother is just a self centered a-*hole who preaches the bible but actually has no family values whatsoever. OOPS there I go again !!! LOL. 2 people were taken into the police and questioned and they lived in the same apartment as the white hat loser, but they were let go this morning after questioning. You are right, these 2 had what appeared to be good lives here, school and opportunity and FOOD which all may have been scarce in good ol' Russia. I guess we'll know more as time goes on. I think if they capture the young punk ALIVE, he'll squeal like a pig on the way to the bacon factory. His big bro is gone and he's a rudderless ship now.

      I went to the Cleveland Auto Show in Febuary, and terrorism never entered my mind, because these things are very rare events, and if as many people died in these senseless terrorists attacks that die on the highway from auto accidents, then we'd really have something to be afraid of, and the whole country would be on shutdown. We get in our cars every day and think nothing about it, but car accidents kill far more than any terroist has, so far anyway.

      • Well, for onr thing if people DID think about dying in their cars when they drive maybe they'd be more careful and less people would die for one thing. Driving is a choice people make with known risks, going to the Marathon, or Auto Show, was something most people wouldn't assume would have the risk of death other than natural health failures. I was run over at the age of 5 by my kindergarten school bus right in front of my house-after that I worried about busses and being run over and still do at times. In the east here, we saw the World Trade Center first hand, it wasn't just a news clip on TV. I grew up watching that building go up and never thought I'd see it go down like that. It changes you. I might personally be more prone to suspicion and that is why I think about terror from time to time, like at the Auto Show. In Philly for one, you get patted down going into court, you get patted down going into some clubs, so I was surprised to NOT get patted down going into something so public as the Auto Show. I'm glad that you don't think about those things Keep, but for me being a little paranoid and suspicious has actually helped me avoid SOME potentially hazardous situations.
