    A lot of people here who have family back home will send funds constantly - and work many under the table jobs that pay cash. I have empathy for the families and knowledge of what living in a large area is like right after a terrorist attack. I'm not going to speak for everyone, but for myself - I know how many people were beaten, raped and targeted after 9/11. No one wants to see that again. Imagine leaving your world behind for this country and then everytime a bomb goes off or something equally terrifying - you have to go into hiding because of your nationality. That's the reality of the media, social media etc.

    my poor mom went through misery when the towers were struck and she couldn't reach me by phone. Now she's sitting on needles because my brother lives near the house where the bombs apparently have now been discovered. I can't fly out there, because flights are suspended. In fact I can't fly even close and drive in because Boston is shut down. this makes so many people uneasy. But the fact of the matter remains that one of the brothers has a wife and young child, parents and probably other siblings. The trickle down effect is turning into a snow ball. / ramble

    Just speculating...

    Maybe he drove over his brother in an attempt to set off the explosives on the vest that his brother was allegedly wearing?

    We don't know what he was responding to, if anything.
    Someone could have said "Can't wait for the marathon" and he could have responded with that.
    We don't have a clue the context.

    While technically correct, we don't know if there are other forces (read: people) involved that influenced him somehow. I agree that his actions show me that he's not some snot nose kid who doesn't know what he got himself into. He knows exactly what he's doing.

    STOP complaining about what other posters are sharing as their own opinion. If you think they are violating the rules, alert the post. Otherwise, scroll on by or use the alert feature. If you don't, you will find yourself on the outside looking in!

    Exactly. Then all his friends show up puzzled. They didn't have a clue, and he was well liked.
    Just my opinion

    I'm guessing he didn't want to give cops more time to shoot at him.. by backing up and turning around.

    Many times when these guys are trained to radicalize,they are told to blend in. Act American. Kinda like hiding in plain sight. Its scary.

    Oye....., they need to make sure they get hard factual evidence of something like this before they even suggest it to the general public. If it's not accurate they could find themselves inciting a backlash against innocent citizens of the USA that practice Islam or fit into the preconceived images that some Americans might hold about people that do.

    I'm 21. If 19-year-olds don't realize that committing a terrorist attack is wrong, I need to get the hell away from campus! I must be going to school with the most mature 19-year-olds in the world because I don't know any who wouldn't realize the full extent of a terrorist attack.

    I could see if it was just one lone nutcase but TWO and they were brothers? And the younger one was supposedly so normal and possibly a pot head? Did his older brother say "Hey, let's set a bomb off at the Marathon this year" and the younger one just agreed that is was a good idea?

    This is all just so strange especially because they were supposedly so normal a year ago.
    Seems we always hear that in the beginning. Then as time goes on we hear the darker side. If anyone knew their darker side I'm sure they are not going to speak out presently. IMO

    I think this means it's a bad place to smoke weed because of all the cops.
    Just my opinion though.
    Agree...the media is overblowing this tweet. They are disgusting. And it means nothing more than that....it was in response to another tweet and out of context.) Moo.

    To add, this isn't like Adam Lanza where the guy was an outcast and basement dweller. Terrorism is terrorism.
