    This is getting creepy now. How far did the Boston police go? If they fired on an unarmed person, that's inexcusable.
    From the thermal image that helicopter had of him, it sure looked like he had one.

    It sure did. Maybe it was a boat oar.

    Could have been. I'm not a boater (despite being born in the sailing capital of the world) so I honestly don't know, do most people keep an oar on a motorboat???

    Re: The War on Terror - What Are We Doing Here?

    The War on Terror is stupid, at least in name, because it is a war on a tactic.

    The war should be against the people using the tactic, but stating it in those terms is not politically correct. We are not allowed to say "The War Against Militant Islamism."

    I really don't have too much of a problem with shutting down a city while a bomber is tracked down in a heated chase. While it shouldn't be mandatory I think most people, when informed, would voluntarily stay home, out of the way and more importantly out of the line of fire.

    Searching homes willy-nilly is something to which I am opposed. If need be they could have a judge or two with them (or available by phone) as they try and track the guy down and have the judge issue search warrants where the law and Constitution allow.

    This adds new meaning to the term "nanny state" which USA has become.

    After arriving in the US, the bombers family received over $100,000 in state benefits
    ranging from cash to food stamps to Section 8 housing.

    Immigration reform will immediately put many if not most illegals on well fare.

    Ron Paul said the manhunt for the bombers was scarrier than the attack.

    Just curious but how is anyone seeing for certain a gun from this image?

    That's a bit unfair to use one image. He could be on top of a weapon and you'd never see it on FLIR.

    That helicopter flew over the scene for a long time, taking a long stream of video. I'd like to see the whole video, not just a select shot.

    Aroun the 2:45 mark on is where you can start to see what looks like a gun.

    I don't think that's the whole video, just the moments before the raid and the raid itself.

    Can't believe they used three flash bangs on that kid. His eardrums will never be the same.

    Thanks for the video, I didnt see that before, just the images.

    I still dont see what was being mistaken for a gun. The dark shadow that seems to be going back and forth in front of him? Thats ripples in the cover to the boat blowing in the wind. The guy himself is barely moving from what i can tell.

    Don't shoot the messenger (no pun intended). I just remember seeing the news and saw what looked like a gun, this was the only video I could find.

    I'm not really sure what down there, is it even confirmed he was shot or shot at there?

    Yeah, I don't really see it in this video, but I am sure there is more out there, somewhere.
