A massive manhunt that spanned several Boston communities has come to an end with Boston police announcing that 19-year-old Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, has been captured.
I don't know about you, but when I was a child, my father pretty much told me that if I got in trouble with the law, I shouldn't call him. He felt the law would probably treat me nicer than he would, if he got his hands on me. I was reminded of this today when I saw this press conference with the uncle of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. He did not have kind words to say.
6:55 AM ET: The AP is reporting that the suspects are from Chechnya, and have lived in the US for at least one year. The surviving Boston bomb suspect has been identified as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Ma. NBC News is reporting that both suspects are brothers. Sources say that the men may have military experience, according to law enforcement officials.

Here's the thing. No matter what happens. No matter what our critics and enemies may say. Americans will always rise to the occasion.
