    (CNN) -- The suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was taken into custody Friday night, bringing to an end a massive manhunt that virtually shut down the Massachusetts capital amid warnings the man was possibly armed with explosives.

    Still, U.S. officials are closely reviewing Tamerlan's 2012 visit to Dagestan, which his parents said he undertook ostensibly to visit family and to pick up a Russian passport. A family member told ABC News earlier this month that during his stay in Russia, Tamerlan was kicked out of the house after expressing his increasingly extremist views on religion.

    Then, in July, he vanished, leaving that new passport behind and left Russia to return to the U.S. His sudden departure is now raising eyebrows as it came after a flurry of police raids in Russia that left both Plotnikov and Nidal dead.

    From the day his mom blamed the USA for taking her boys, I suspected her for teaching them to hate.
    I was very pacient.... seems from what I have been reading - I am right. Is there a thread about horor mom here?
    She is a jihadist. We so not want her in this country unless she wants a cell with her son with a LWOP verdict.

    Is it possible that little brother is the stereotype pothead and just kind of in la la land with all of it? Maybe not brought into the bombing plans until the last minute and was too naive to realize the severity of it?
    From the beginning, it struck me odd how casual he was in the pictures and video. Just seemed like he was following big brother, having fun on an adventure (I know, poor choice of words, but how I'm wondering if it was from his perspective). He didn't seem to take it serious with his attire, backwards hat, smirk, casual walk.
    Another sad reality is that so many of the next generation is becoming desensitized to trauma and violence. Mix that mentality with regular pot use, struggles at school, big brother influence, foreign ground (regardless of citizenship), over-the-top mother.

    Nevertheless, she should have been taken to FBI offices and officially questioned as a witness. She is one of the most important witnesses in this case imo. All ...

    See, all this makes me suspicious. Negotiating for interviews, house search, the taking of the laptop and other things.

    Yes we haven't read anything incriminating but that doesn't mean it isn't there. The lawyer seems to be very efficient, shielding her well from FBI and media.

    Yes, her lawyer is doing her job. If I were KRT right now, I have to admit I'd be doing exactly what my lawyer said, and speaking only with atty approval. KRT is between a rock and a hard place right now. She not only has to worry about enemy repercussions (if this is terrorist-related), but also repercussions with legal tangles. If she's innocent (and I'm leaning that way), she still has to be ultra careful with what she tells authorities and when. As someone who has had a close friend and her family interrogated by the feds in a capital murder case, I will tell you that even though LE are the 'good guys,' there are serious pitfalls to look out for when you're an innocent party close to the case. The feds' highest priority is in seeing the serious offender nailed--and unfortunately they may seem to say, promise, or imply some things and/or protections along the way to innocents that they may end up not carrying through on. This can sometimes be to the serious detriment of the innocent associate. Not dissing LE--it's just the way the system works. So having good legal representation immediately is ALL important in any big case...especially for innocent parties who may get themselves unknowingly into hot water due to naivete or inexperience.

    "So really I guess the facts are just that: he was capable of violence, he could kill children and smile while doing it and never gave the slightest hint to even those he spent most of his time with, aside from his brother."

    Yes, the FACTS are that he blew up human beings, including a small child. Despite the fact that he is "only" 19 years old.

    How many 19 year old soldiers putting their lives on the line every day for our freedom do you think we might have right now? And to the older posters here - what were YOU doing in your life when you were 19? I was raising two children at 19. My late husband was in Vietnam, in combat, fighting a lousy war for our country.

    I am getting really tired of hearing about how Younger Bomber is "only" 19. There have been plenty of 19 year old, baby-faced killers. And younger. I don't care if his pot-head friends think he was the nicest guy on the planet, the FACTS show us he is a murderer.

    Why don't we all get real here?

    As for the American wife, I'll believe she knew nothing and was working those 70-80 hours per week when her time cards and the results of an FBI administered polygraph are published. Anyone who has their lawyer "negotiating" with the FBI about interviews under these circumstances raises a great deal of suspicion, IMO. Sorry, that's just the way I think.

    What kind of "pitfalls"? Define that specifically, please. Of course the highest priority of the Feds should be in seeing the offender nailed. What kind of things would they need to say, promise, or imply to innocents? What kind of "hot water" would someone who is totally innocent get into due to naivete or inexperience? I am not trying to negate the value of legal representation for anyone, but why, exactly, would/should an innocent party have a problem in dealing with FBI investigators?

    Did the innocent parties do something they should not have done? Did they hide a fugitive? Lie to investigators? What?

    I had those exact thoughts too. Possible but unlikely I would say.

    Thank you PiM for clearing the pressure cooker/bomb DNA question up. I must have overlooked those reports.

    Yes I totally understand what you say in your last paragraph, she's gotten herself into a real sticky situation, even if she's completely innocent, and certainly needs a lawyer.

    I will just employ a wait-and-see attitude. I'm sure the truth will come out soon.

    I wonder what she has told her daughter - the little girl must asking where her father is. Very sad for her.

    I was also married at 19, working Mon-Fri (on campus) and was a full-time college student...no kids. I made $2.10 an hour and sometimes "went grocery shopping" at one of the two sets of parents homes. Hubbie worked part-time, too and he was also getting his bachelor's. We ate a lot of beans, rice, bananas, creamed tuna on cheap white toast, and ramin noodles (until they literally made me vomit.) We rarely could afford to buy meat. Chicken and hamburger was pretty much all we could afford. I had student loans & a Pell grant. My parents paid for only my first semester. Once I was married they didn't pay for anything... well, except for the food we sometimes got.

    One semester, when we lived in a rural college town, we had to get food stamps. They gave us $80.00 a month for two people. We had two roommates and right before we left and came back to the suburbs, our oil bill for heating the 100 year old two story house (3 weeks) was six hundred dollars!!! None of us could afford that. There were no international trips, either. We splurged and drove for day trips to the beach a couple times a year.

    I had to stop & start school several times because somebody had to work full time. It took me getting a divorce to finally finish my undergrad degree. I was separated at age 23 and divorced by 25. We had to save money to pay for the divorce.

    Things are different now. Everything is about immediate gratification.

    JMO, but when you are living on a shoestring budget or off of other people's generosity, buying/owning things like designer/name brand shoes &, purses, smart phones, clothing accessories, jewelry and designer sunglasses really is inappropriate...unless they have been given to you as a gift.

    Why are screencaps of other posters comments being taken & posted? I've been here for over 3 years, and don't recall anyone doing that when needing to quote someone's post.

    Is something wrong with the quote function to necessitate screencaps of WS posts?

    Boston (CNN) -- Two weeks after twin blasts near the Boston Marathon's finish line, the story continues to develop -- including new insights and movement on the investigation, the victims and more.

    Among those developments:

    -- Investigators have discovered at least one fingerprint among the Boston bomb debris, a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation tells CNN. There have been no matches yet, the official said.

    I did it for the first time in this thread, b/c I've quoted the post about the pressure cookers a couple times, now, and b/c it contains multiple quotes with links and responses, it's easier for me to post and repost that way. (When you click 'quote' it only quotes what YOU posted, not the question.) Not sure if/why others might do it.

    JustK: I hear you about the instant gratification.

    I guess I am just getting totally disgusted by continuing to hear a murderer referred to as "a kid". Nineteen and twenty-six are not "kids". Again this afternoon on CNN some "guest commentatator" referred to the two bombers as "these kids".

    To me, this is a disservice to the victims of these two killers. And yes, I did contact CNN to express my opinion on this issue.

    I believe we are going to end up finding out that Older Bomber was up to his eyebrows with militant radicals when he was over there in Dagestan and that Mama was urging him on.

    Younger brother? A laid back pothead who thought it "might be kinda cool" tp mosey on down to the Boston Marathon with his radicalized nut-case older brother and place a couple of pressure cooker bombs? Well he didn't seem to be too laid back when he was throwing home-made grenades at the police or when he was running over his brother at 60-80 miles per hour, did he?

    We are lucky, lucky, lucky these two were caught when they were.

    The American wife who married Older Bomber after he had already slapped her around and was calling her a "prostitute" and a "slut", according to her friends? I will not be surprised at all if it turns out that she saw things -like 6 new pressure cookers sitting in that grimy apartment. And hundreds of dollars worth of fireworks.

    Wife is working 70-80 hours a week while hubby sits home? But there is money for foreign trips for hubby and expensive shoes for her? Give me a break.

    I HOPE the FBI leans on her!

    No problem! The tidbits of information are so many and varied it's hard to keep them sorted. Wait-and-see is about where I'm at right now, too. And I feel awful for that little girl. And what she might find on the internet in about 10 years.
