SEEMS LIKE AN OVERREACTION TO ME: Should The Police Have Shut Boston Down?

Related thoughts here: “If you’d shown me those pictures a quarter century ago and told me that’s what Boston will look like after a terrorist attack, I would have thought: Oh, my God! The neutron bomb!”

Plus, from the comments: “Given what happened in LA during the Dorner manhunt, and the number of police deployed here, it’s as much to prevent accidental shootings by police as to make the manhunt easier.”

But I think this is the last word: “So lockdown is lifted because they can’t find the suspect…which allows boat guy to leave his house…and find the suspect.”
