    While I agree NYC is more advanced in surveillance, I don't see how they prevent that bomb from going off.

    Especially a suicide bomber.

    Civilians are often the first line of defense. "If you see something, say something."

    The technology I was referring to is new. Post Times Square. I am sure Boston will be getting a similar system. Probably already have it some places.

    That technology may or may not of stopped something like what happened in Boston.

    You're right. I shouldn't have been absolute in saying that it won't happen. But the very presence of the surveillance is a great deterrent and has proven to be so in NYC.

    This new wave of terrorists look for extremely easy targets. Martyrdom is not as important. They way to place a bomb and leave.

    Can't prevent a guy with a vest. If he drives up, runs out and pushes the button there is nothing you can do.

    The unrelenting sense of purpose encapsulated in those mutual nods is something I will never forget. I felt every emotion over the past few days. My relief and euphoria is tempered by the fact I will soon witness a devastated family grieving at the funeral for their beloved 26 year old son.
    Great job all around. Enjoy the public adulation while you can, it wont last long!

    All agencies worked together and were successful but hey feel free to make sure you inject the typical NYPD arrogance into the thread.
    Go read up on what the FBI knew about the older brother prior to this attack and get back to me.

    Just like gun control - you can ban everything, and can have a million cameras, but you can't stop someone who wants to hurt people.

    that person, that Jihadist, that mentally unstable person, that hateful evil son of a ***** needs to be identified and dealt with otherwise he'll find a way.

    Just like in the Dark Knight; Some people just want to see the world burn.

    It's up to the good guys to keep the bad guys away from here.

    +1. The guy was never charged with anything. People don't realize that you actually have to investigate some people to rule them out as suspects.

    Still, would it kill you to say somethng nice to him?

    Feelings were hurt.

    Actually did you see the pic of him helping...kudos to him.

    So, the J_tsar twitter account since yesterday has had tweets and follows removed. Nevermind the 80k new followers.

    I'm guessing maybe things he re-tweeted were deleted by the original authors? And maybe someone just took down their twitter account altogether to fall out of his list of followers?

    Some crazy **** in there though.

    Last year, on April 16, which was marathon Monday, this little piece of **** wrote a tweet that is apparently a paraphrase of an extremist Muslim ideal.

    Throughout the feed, if you read it all, it's about 90% of this kid trying to sound like a typical American slap-dick, saying things that champion money, material goods and whatnot. Really resonated with me as disingenuous, considering the peppers the feed with Islamic philosophy, which directly contradicts what he's saying. He does a mediocre job of feigning American teen values.

    As you read it though, you can't miss the times where he makes reference to celebrating September 11th, and the cryptic posts taking action, or the tweets where he almost speaks in metaphors about bombs, explosions, alarms going off, and there's an interesting pic where the clock = death.

    I don't know if this piece of **** was consciously or unconsciously breadcrumbing things, but it's there... and if he was foreshadowing things as far back as last year, I'd have to imagine this was a plan in the works for a while and they had to absolutely have help.

    I truly, truly hope they can turn this ***** and get him to talk.

    Have you guys seen the photos of the Navy Seals all over the bomb site? Before and after the blast? The conspiracy theory is that they had something to do with it... I think that's insane... however, it does kind of make me suspect they might have had some idea an attack was imminent, and they just failed to stop it?

    They are literally crawling all over the finish line area, and after the explosion did nothing to help. They were running around with what some people speculate are radiation detectors, and others went immediately to the opposite side of the street under the bleachers to retrieve something.

    Then they left (based on the narrative provided by the whoever posted the photos).

    There's no denying they look like defense contractors or Seals, or that they are equipped. I just think the conspiracy that they were behind it is insane... they are all over the photos. Some say they were conducting bomb drills, not sure that's credible or not.

    It would be nice to know what their role was in being there... out of curiosity.

    After years of listening to my brother in law, NYPD, say exactly what you are, I chalked it up to rivalry, jealousy etc. Now, I'm Not so sure you and he aren't on or close to target.

    In my realm, the SEC was handed Madoff years before the scandal and did nothing.

    My team got kicked loose literally five minutes before it all came to an end. We were pissed. Not because we're hard-os and want to get in shoot outs, but having been there all week, it sucked not being there when we know we might be helpful. I'm just glad no one else got hurt. Watertown folks were very nice and accepting. Even came across a jet's fan. Same with Boston.

    For such a big operation, I thought it ran really well.

    Stanley! I had no idea you were on the force (BPD or BFD?). I take back all the chit I said about you. Instead, let me thank you for your service. Truly.

    I'm on the Cape; you know that. And, I prefer our relationship to be contentious.
