The Boston Marathon was dramatically interrupted when two bombs exploded near the finish line.These small, yet powerful bombs detonated nearly twelve seconds apart and left over 170 people injured and claimed three casualties.
The entire city of Boston went in to an unprecedented lockdown. Streets were vacant and business were closed. Sporting events were also cancelled and postponed. The Red Sox and Bruins postponed their games this past Friday. Tuesday's NBA game between the the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers was cancelled.
Boston College also cancelled the annual Jay McGillis Memorial Spring Football game. Mass transportation and public transit stations were immediately shut down, as authorities continued the city-wide manhunt for suspect #1.
Bostonians were extremely ecstatic once news broke, that the suspect was captured and taken into custody on Friday night. The suspect was injured during the gun battles and was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center - the same hospital were the suspect's older brother was pronounced dead and where 12 victims of this horrific bombing are being treated for injuries.
I am very thankful authorities caught this traitor. The FBI and local law enforcement with help of the American public, resolved this volatile situation very swiftly.
I also observed his friends and acquaintances, constantly, telling the media how good of a kid he was. However, last year on his twitter account he tweeted:
a decade in america already, i want out

The suspect could have his citizenship revoked, which ironically, he acquired on 9/11/12, and might be classified as an enemy combatant so he can face the full extent of the law.
Hopefully, we can all return to some sense of normalcy as the 2013 NBA Playoffs begin. The Boston Celtics will began their postseason against the New York Knicks today at 3pm.
