Boston Marathon Bombing "Suspects" and other Random Thoughts

Locking down a whole city to apprehend one wounded teenager seemed a bit much; appeals to the collectivist mindset of today's politician. You know, "our children," it takes a village, etc.

After all, citizens are wards of the government and can't be expected to participate in their own security.

I'm just guessing, but the Dzhokar Tsarnaev would have been caught sooner had the citizens of Boston been about their business as usual. Every person a sensor, you know.

The boat owner spotted Tsarnaev after police suspended curfew. As Taylor West put it so well on Twitter:
So lockdown is lifted because they can't find the suspect...which allows boat guy to leave his house...and find the suspect.
Our newest Jihadist hero, now receiving medical attention for wounds from a gunfight with police, will certainly be assured due process of the law.

Here he is with backwards ball cap shortly after placing the bomb that killed 8 year old Martin Richard and severely injured many more in the photo.

I can see the Obama Administration doing cheetah flips to figure out how to spin this into a workplace violence issue, or better yet, new legislation to enlarge the government's role in making marathons safer.

In an unnecessary and gratuitous speech, President Obama said "All in all it's been a tough week. But we've seen the character of our country once more."

And with a president this soft on identifying the enemy in the war on terror, it's certain the country will get to demonstrate it's character more often.

Human carnage aside, it's been tough for Obama, who was really talking about legislative set backs on gun control and the coming "trainwreck" on Obamacare. Time inadvertently got it right, noting:
President Barack Obama pledged to seek answers for the victims of the Boston Marathon explosions about the motives and the planning behind the deadly blasts, even as he acknowledged that the capture of a second suspect brought to a close a trying five days for his presidency and for the nation.
Motives? Seriously? Here's a clue: the bombers were from Chechnya.

Will justice be swift in the Boston Marathon bombings? Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the architect of 3,000 American deaths, has yet to see trial.

What about Major Hassan, who gunned down 13 of his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood? Still untried.

So forgive a little scepticism when the president said of the bombers, "We will hold you accountable."

A big problem was not holding Obama and the Democrat-collectivist-government complex accountable in the last election.

Since we're speculating about causes of the Boston bombings, I'll blame low information voters.
