    I was thinking that too. I know they want him to be alive in order to hopefully get some questions answered but.... at the same time it just feels so wrong to work to save his life.


    This whole thing is still insane to me. Doesn't seem real. I was so distracted at work today, just wanted to glue myself to the news.

    I can. I'd gladly save his ass so that the authorities could find out what they need to know. Can't say as I'd be particularly concerned with being gentle, though. Whoops, forgot to lube that cath, sorry buddy...

    ...Probably why I didn't go to med school.

    I would imagine medical staff would just go into autopilot? Also, I wonder if it is a lot harder to think about NOT saving someone's life (no matter what they've done) if they are actually right in from of you with your hands on them.

    Its just all so very sad.....often one can find "reason" (not justification) for acts. A certain trauma as a turning point or growing up, not developing empathy, being raised or indoctrinated with extreme views or hate, etc. Again, not that any of this justifies terrorist activities (domestic or foreign), or any kind of atrocity...but these boys. What happened? Where did they turn? Usually you hear oh they were such a loner, or no one ever knew them or hung out...it seems so crazy.

    I'm thinking about his defense attorney. Wouldn't want to be them. And although I'm sure there's enough between last night and today to put him away for good, I'm not so sure about the Marathon. I hope they have enough (proper) evidence to nail him for that.

    Urgh the fact people are debating skin colour and how that makes people behave differently is insanity. And a bit disgusting. And people are saying these boys were of Islamic faith.

    And seriously, look at history. You can't say any one race is more evil/plotted/nutjobby than another.

    All religions have the blood of thousands on their hands. All of them. Hitler was reported to be Christian... And look at the crusades!!!!

    These kinds of wars or acts of hate have always happened, all through history, every race and religious view is covered.

    And before anyone else gets there.....

    Apparently the Chechen leader is blaming the brothers actions on their American upbringing and is upset that the police killed the older suspect.

    Hmmm, the link still works for me? Its not anything that major, just more of people who knew them being shocked. It does seem the older one started changing several years back from some accounts, started distancing himself maybe?
