I bet they have a suspect within 48 hours if it is domestic. He probably posted a rant online, has been acting irrational towards his family, friends and neighbors, made a stop somewhere to buy suspicious items on camera.

slackist: I deplore violence and am truly sad that innocent people have been killed and maimed. There is, however, a sense of irony that the City of Boston, which for decades turned a blind eye to the slaughter of Irish people by terrorists and raised funds for the IRA, has learned the hard way that life is precious everywhere.


I don't think many of the 40 million Irish Americans actively supported the IRA. To exaggerate the numbers would benefit the British government in negotiations, and help it convince the US government to get involved. It wasn't just the IRA who committed atrocities during the Troubles.

Only morons.

I'm leaning the other way. This may be more like a Unabomber type thing. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Very true, and there are two sides to all conflicts. Whoever carried out this attack, barring a random crazy, probably believes (with ample justification, in the case of Islamist inspired terrorists) that the US government has committed atrocities against his side. I don't think anyone is asserting that every Irish American actively funded the IRA, but none of that counters the fact that NORAID and Clan na Gael enjoyed substantial visible support in South Boston.
