    the title of the thread has it and its name will come up in the lastest discussions/popular sections if there are any posters. not the biggest issue in the world, but would be nice if people didnt use the word

    The breaking news has been in the last few posts. Generally, I take the title to mean 'latest developments: see last post'.

    Sky News is still reporting that the suspect is hiding in a boat. Way behind the curve.

    Guardian reported a minute ago.

    Edit: As Aurorae pointed out, BPD has tweeted it.

    I'd say Tamurlane's Youtube profile, with its many extremist Islamic videos, provides at the least, the most probable hypothesis.
    I'm afraid I haven't heard of any such extremist videos other than a playlist called "terrorist" that is unviewable.

    And it's perfectly valid as a hypothesis, however, this does not mean that it is religiously motivated as fact, and that we should "liquidate" Dzhokhar (who shows no signs of similarly strong faith as his brother does, and from what we know of his character, has no reason to 'hate the west') for being a "radical Islamist".


    But we've got him now. We should be happy! Suspect is in custody, and he's alive. It's all over.

    Well, that's about enough excitement for me for one day

    It's been like a four-day episode of Homeland. And I think it has been pretty revolutionary in terms of the way the public has responded and engaged in the story, internet denizens tracking every twist and turn live, crowdsourcing (however inaccurately) analysis of the visual data.... very interesting.

    Totally agree.

    (who shows no signs of similarly strong faith as his brother does) for being a "radical Islamist".
    Most definitely. I'm glad it was Dzhokar who survived, from everything we've read it almost seems like he must have been dragged into it by his older brother, and seemed like a nice guy.

    What went wrong? I suppose we might well find out considering he's alive and not "liquidated" as childsit demanded.

    (It is odd that we're referring to him by first name, that it's almost as though we know something of his personality.... all very novel)

    But we've got him now. We should be happy! Suspect is in custody, and he's alive. It's all over.
    Agreed

    why
    Understand his motive, understand how such an event was able to happen, improve security, and most importantly give the victims a chance to understand why the suffered because of him. Then of course the obvious trial and punishment etc.
