My only question is why aren't they using a chopper using infrared or something similar?

Choppers are out. Noted upthread.

They have killed one of the Boston Marathon bombers and think that they have another cornered. The explosions were from the bombers after they hujacked a car and were chased by police. One suspect is thought to be surrounded and holed up at this time.......

If he wasnt a suspect, he wouldnt be surrounded and holed up, so now he is the shooter.

long standoff it seems we will see today.

either they can snipe him (risk) or they can try to take him down

and you can be sure he isnt going to turn himself in; he knows he will rot in jail or be killed inside. today he dies: how is up to him.

hospital holding a presser now re: suspect #1

- showed up with PD @ 1:20 AM

- declared dead about 15 mins after arrival (1:35 AM)

- injuries included several gunshots, burns and perhaps blast trauma and shrapnel (Karma's a bitch!)

Police now believe that the second shooter is holed up in a shopping mall business area and they have the area closed off. Police have now publically stated that these two were terrorists who came to the U.S. about a year ago "to kill as many people as possible".

Governor has shut down mass transit. Told people to go home - don't congregate. Telling people in certain neighborhoods not to open businesses etc.

Police have increased the survellance area now. Not sure if he hijacked another car, but they are widening the containment area anyway. Watertown is now effectively shut down. People told to not go into that town at this time and no businesses to open today until the area is secured.

Imagine how many cops and fbi agents are in that town right now.

I hope no more people die, but this guy isnt going to be taken alive.

given the situation, one more person will die.

Why would he be killed on the inside. Our mass murderer over here is locked up in his own little private cell area barely ever getting to see other people. funny thing is, as determined as these people are to die, after they've been running for a while like this, dying gets less interesting. The longer they stay holed up, the bigger the chance he will surrender

I know over here the high security prisons prisoners can still congregate together so always a chance to kill another and it happens now and again lol

People aint gonna like a Terrorist in there, they will more than likely segregate him though

CNN just announced that the terrorist who was killed had explosives on his body. A big concern at this time that the second terrorist at large has the same.

Sorry to go kinda off topic but i had to comment on this.

Having spent a full year in prison myself, i can tell you its definitely not about respect. The reason why prisoners don't like rapists an paedos? it's because they have committed crimes against women (in most instances of rape) and kids. As twisted as it sounds there is a pecking order depending on the crime you've committed.

It's unlikely he'd be killed by another prisoner, he'd more than likely be put straight into segregation.

Thats why I said respect with " "....

I've not been following this all too closely, but it seems insane. Someone has probably already linked to this, but the BBC have live text coverage following the events.

Boston Police Department tweets: #CommunityAlert: Search for armed suspect continues in Watertown. Residents reminded to remain indoors. All vehicle traffic suspended.

Madness. A town in lockdown...

Had to block out some info because I don't believe it is public yet, but here is a better picture of the one still on the run.

Some updates:

NBC is reporting that they are possibily brothers. Not confirmed.

Police is preparing a controlled explosion. They evacuated the area and now a controlled exploision....odd for one guy.
