(I speak as one who doesn't know much about military/police procedures.) He's got nothing left to lose, and could be planning on taking a lot of law enforcement with him when the chips are down.

Last night, I would agree with that since they basically called off the search until it got light outside. Today though, they have been sending out multiple swat teams and EOD teams every time some one reports a window open that wasn't open earlier in the day. The FBI has also basically said to shoot first and ask questions later. So I just have a feeling that he slipped away last night when the fog rolled in and caused the helicopter to land.

tuning in every once in awhile to keep up with what is going on. So glad you are all safe.

Then I wonder what their next steps will be once the door-to-door search is complete ...? I guess a lot of people around here have the same question.

Today is my 25 year anniversary with the company. They found a picture of me playing in the band on the internet and posted it on our information TVs here in the office and in the plant. Funny guys!

I hope y'all have a great day!
praying your eye heals quick.

I would imagine that they would do a second sweep just to be sure and then they are going to be at sitting out front of every persons house that he has ever had contact with.

Anyway, I'm the owner of a new iPhone. Any killer apps I need to get or neat tricks I need to know about? I'm new to the smart phones, so I'm learning as I go.

Been gone for a few hours, trying to get caught up with the whole Boston lockdown. I did see that the Red Sox & Bruins both postponed their games tonight. I hope they find this guy soon.
