    So is this the SUV that the suspects were then standing behind during the shootout with Police? Because if you are saying it is, the pictures of that SUV show that that was all black, it did not say Police on the side. Is this the one that they are saying the younger brother got in and ran his brother over with? Or is this still the story? Was the parked car in the middle of the road, (pictures taken by man who lives right there, took out his 3rd floor window) the vehicle that the brothers were driving? I thought they carjacked a SUV at the 7/11. It seems like this just gets more confusing and that there are still unanswered questions, unfortunately.

        What doesn't make sense is stopping the video at 2:20 mark and noticing the front windshield is still intact. As it's pulled around the corner on the tow truck, you can see through the passenger window that the front glass is not broken or has bullet holes. Just doesn't make sense.

    Dear Mr. Anderson,
    while thanking you for your programme's complete and exhaustive coverage of "Boston Terroristic Attack, I wonder if there was any need to disclose personal data regarding one of the suspect's wife. I do believe that this disclosure has been made by several other T.V. networks in the U.S.A. (I cannot be sure about it, since I am not residing there), nevertheless I don't understand which kind of "additional value" can be attached to this practice. So far, there are no proofs that that woman is involved in the attack; in addition (even considering such a tragic circumstances) that woman became suddenly widow, while her little child lost his/her father. In your programme today you spoke about the importance of "commiseration"; in a world in which information travel so fast, where hidding from people' view seems become impossible, I believe that also these two souls deverve commiseration.
