The second Boston Patriots’ Day bomber has been captured. People are standing in the streets of Watertown, MA wildly applauding any and every uniformed officer–and there are plenty. Applause is in order.
Cops and other first responders show bravery and courage well beyond anything I could muster. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Here’s what struck me earlier today. Everyone wanted this guy taken alive. Right?
We find these horrific acts impossible to understand. We want to know why? How can evil like this exist?
His death would have cheated us of our only small satisfaction.
After that I don’t care.
