Police Arrest Second Boston Marathon Bomb Suspect


Dzhokar Tsarnaev

Police have nabbed the 19-year-old suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, after a day-long manhunt that completely shut down the city of Boston and several suburbs and left one police officer dead.

Some Bostonians flooded into the streets cheered the news, celebrating an end to five days of fear since the bombs wounded more than 175 people and killed three.

Tsarnaev was found in a boat in the yard of a home on Franklin Street, close to where he and his older brother engaged in a shootout with police nearly 24 hours earlier. The homeowner discovered Tsarnaev when he saw blood on the outside of his boat and then lifted the tarp to find a person, covered in blood, inside. Police used a heat-detecting device on a helicopter to find out that he was still inside, and exchanged gun fire with the suspect for the next hour, before he was apprehended.

"We're so grateful to bring justice and closure to this case," Police Col. Timothy Alben said at a 9:30 p.m. press conference. "We're exhausted ... but we have a victory here tonight." Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said he could find no explanation for the "savagery" of the attacks, but that the capture made him proud to be a Boston police officer.

"We've closed an important chapter in this tragedy," President Barack Obama said in brief remarks at the White House Friday night, noting there were still many unanswered questions about the Tsarnaevs' actions.

"Whatever they thought they could ultimately achieve, they failed," Obama said. Americans, he said, "refuse to be terrorized."

It took Americans just 3-4 days to find the bombers.....its taking Nigerians forever to locate boko-haram.

Kudos to the serious minded police officers in the United states of America for their job well done by bringing the culprits to book, then what have Nigeria police ever achieved to live for? Bribery and extortion in Lagos state using gov Fashola's delegated power to extort commercial motor cycle operators <br />Nigerian army? Peacekeeping.<br />Nigeria goverment? Looting, non challant attitude to terrorism.<br />May God help us, Amen
