    Watertown manhunt.. who were they shooting at?

    So... when u was watching the manhunt on tv, the older brother dead, and they had been searching for hours. They had just allowed people to start leaving their homes when they went to a cnn reporter that both he and his camera guy reported automatic weapons fire. They locked the city back down and eventually found the guy in the boat.

    If he had been in the boat for awhile like they said..... who was shooting, and at whom?

    The story published was that when contact was made by LE, Jharo fired on them and engaged by returning fire at the suspect in the boat. This was all done before the media even knew there had been a 911 call about the blody guy in the boat that needed to be checked out.
    I really don't believe that LE is going to track down media, hold a press conference to let them know what ther are doing before they engage to capture a potential terrorist subject.
    Now keep in mind this is just MY OPINION.

    Just the DHS guys expending some of their billions of rounds.

    Didn't want to carry them home, they'll get more issued.

    From my observation when the LEO's closed in they opened fire on the boat. Even heard one of them saying "he is thrashing around now" with 2-300 rounds going into that boat I am extremely surprised that punk is still alive. Don't get me wrong but excessive use of force kind of comes to mind here.

    I was wondering about this after it was over.
    That is a densely developed area as far as spacing of the homes. All those rounds flying everywhere, not too many hitting the kid, apparently, and none of them hit anyone else in the surrounding area?
    Seems amazing.

    I saw reports of a man in an apartment near the shooting reported he found 3 bullet holes inside his apartment after the shooting. I'm not sure if it was the night engagement that resulted in the dead brother or when they found 19 year old. However, with 200 rounds flying, I can't believe no one, even in a house was not hit. Remember the two NYC cops that shot at a guy with a gun near Times Square? There were 12 or 12 bystanders hit by bullets, all from the cops weapons. For that reason somebody or somebody's pet had to get hit, I think. Did the city pay anyone off to keep it quite and to keep away from the press?
    - My big question is who is going to pay the boat owner for his newly airconditioned job? Or the SUV owner whose stolen car was similarly made to resemble swiss cheese? I know the cops/feds/etc. have to be sure they get the suspects but what is their responsibility to reimburse the property owner? Same question for homeowners that took rounds in their buildings, cars, etc. during the firefight? Will LE simply claim the rounds had to be from the BG, not them and refuse any financial responsibility? I have watched a lot of reports since last week but heard nothing about this.

    I heard there was an online drive to collect donations to buy the guy a new boat and they had collected several thousand so far. It was estimated that it would cost $30,000 to replace it. The rest I haven't heard anything about. But I'm guessing the city of Boston is not going to be much help.

    Sorry to "chop" your reply but as a former resident of the Boston area, they don't give a flying crap about his boat, the car or the (and they must be MANY) holes in people's houses!

    They didn't care about anyone's Constitutional Rights so why would you think they would care about ones property?

    There's a big difference between Times Square and a suburban neighborhood. And between NYPD beat cobs and SWAT.
