Supposedly the remaining brother told police they were headed to NYC before being ambushed Friday night. This coincides with the Asian man who's car was hijacked who heard Manhattan mentioned. The bombs, including the pressure cooker one which were thrown by the killers to escape from police, were part of the arsenal. This was all videoed by young men from their second floor apartment.
Times Square would also be a soft deadly killing zone. When I was there a few years ago it was packed even late at night ,and many people wore backpacks.
So kudos to Watertown police and all the others who helped bring the monsters down, maybe preventing another mass killing and maiming. . Mom still thinks they're innocent despite the younger one admitting it all. Denial. IMO, she looks like the radical parent...fiery eyes, big mouth.
