In Short: Our Boston Week...

Today was a good day.
Both primary suspects have been stopped for their "alleged" role in the Marathon Bombings, robbery, killing, city shutdown. There is little doubt they planned and carried out this horrific act.

Today was a bad day.
All I see online is "of course they were Muslims!" and "Haha, the libtards thought they were Tea Party/Christians!" All I see online is how Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should be tortured, dragged through glass, waterboarded, ...killed as soon as he can stand. I see on TV shouts of "USA! USA!" for the arrest of an American citizen.

We pull together. We celebrate success.

For those politicizing it and lauding torture: Stahp! You are making us ugly.

The important thing is that both perpetrators have been stopped within 48 hours. Good job!

This has been a strange week in Boston. All of the enormous police presence & constant media coverage is over.the suspect was caught. But yes you are so right there is something errently wrong about all of the celebrating. It has been a very sad week indeed.

I am glad they caught the perps quickly. That said, there's something ugly and sad about celebrating it.
