    Seems to make a lot more sense than "he just gave up peacefully".
    That sounds a lot like the final scene in Fight Club.

    Link to Criminal complaint v. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, if anyone's interested in reading it.

    Fair enough.

    I watched, and that's been reported a lot actually, or at least I've heard it a lot. Not sure if it was self-inflicted or from a cop's gun.

    I thought the best part of last night's '60 Minutes' was the segment on the bomb-sniffing dogs. That was fascinating. What an incredible animal (and weapon) those dogs are. I was glad to hear they receive the same ceremonial burial as a soldier if they're killed in action. They definitely have the attention of our enemies, because a Taliban soldier said they are trained to go after the dogs before worrying about American soldiers.

    How would all fo you felt if a US drone took out a US citizen on US soil ? This was an option explored with the younger brother.

    Most interesting tidbit I think of todays news was that the older brother was denied US citizenship and that is what made him return to Russia last year. What makes that even more puzzling is that the US reason for denying him was because of his prior arrest. So basically they are saying your too dangerous too be a citizen but your more then welcome to come back here on a 6 month visa. Really makes no sense.

    That's an awful lot of comments without references to back them up. I hope your sources aren't something like infowars

    If you want to discuss the political ramifications, including possible drone strikes, of what occurred and what will occur, please do so in the political forum.

    I know that may seem to be wishful thinking given what has happened, but please try to keep the discussion going on here as apolitical as possible. And I would say so far so good up to this point.

    Thanks.

    Re: Dozens injured in two explosions at Boston Marathon finish line

    Now we learn the older brother had been receiving welfare benefits in the US for years, up until a few months ago. I ask again, how were his purchases and actions funded? Guns, ammo, bomb ingredients, protective gear, etc? Apparently his wife worked 70-80 hour workweeks, while he was a "stay-at-home dad". Are people eligible for welfare while working 70-80 hour weeks and having only one child? Was the wife paying for his purchases, despite denying any knowledge of his actions? Or did she give him a hefty weekly "allowance"? If this is/was truly a two-man operation, who was footing the bill?

    I may be wrong, but wasn't the bomb made from basic household items a radio from a race car and fireworks? They did have some guns apparently, but it didn't seem like this was a well funded operation from what I've read.

    It still takes money to put together homemade grenades and pressure cookers filled with ball bearings and nails. Obviously not well-funded, but funded nevertheless. They had automatic weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammo. Yet neither had a job, their parents live off welfare (or whatever the equivalent of welfare is in their country), etc. Apparently the wife was the only one with any income, but she claims innocence. It doesn't add up.

    Now NYC officials are saying the suspects' next plan was to travel there and set off bombs in Times Square. They weren't finished.

    The Boston Globe's account of the manhunt, it's long, but it's worth reading if you're interested in the details:
