Off and cool people through Dave wedge in the Boston Herald was with me now and I mean you and I've become friends over the past week and you have really been the eyes in the years that community for us.
If you're in Watertown last night -- ask you specifically about that in a moment but I thought the coolest part of the entire week the applause.
From so many people directed toward the police and the and the and the firefighters and anybody -- -- a -- -- it was a very move.
Being seen out -- last night bill is as you saw some of the pictures I was out on arsenal street Watertown shortly after they captured.
The suspect -- The most moment I'll remember the most is -- a Boston Police Department armored swat vehicle that came through.
Where is the doors open and some offices on the back in the officer driving was on the income -- to -- chanting USA BP.
And -- and other people hugging and crying and it's you know it's definitely.
It's it's you know some might think it's a little sappy but it just.
Got to me you know I mean this is my city lived in my whole life and -- is so much fear in the city right now to have them finally get that guy.
The whole city I think she's overcome -- -- motion.
Just watching this young lady carry American flag on the sidewalk behind us and you know that had a -- -- to American flags on the back of you know of his three real.
Well you know again it's it's not unlike.
9/11 it's it's a time for us to be happy to be Americans.
And again you know that they might be cynics out there and that saves jingoism and that sort of stuff but it's not it's just it's human emotion.
-- the city was attacked a police officer was murdered in cold blood but for no reason at all that we know.
And and we got -- you know the police officers got a man like Mayor Menino said we bottom.
Thank you the police officers and ice in my opinion it's the right reaction to be happy to be American right now.
I had a sense last night after the last briefing at 6 PM that this thing was going cold.
And I think a lot of people felt that way and sure enough -- things just changed in a heartbeat.
But yet you've got a lot way you've got a long way to go frankly you know there investigators back out -- -- since -- again today.
This is still considered a crime scene.
And at least this part of the cities and locked down but trying to figure out -- to men who were essentially raced here.
I -- they live across the Charles River a quarter of a mile from where we are right now.
What in the world can you writes for report to explain.
Or -- -- even need an explanation other and say this was this is driven by hatred and a pure misunderstanding about Q what what humanity is all about.
I think you're right but we do need explanations and you know there's a lot of questions that we here in Boston -- answered.
We need to know who -- these folks in New Bedford.
What -- they duel and all these bombs and they came back here on Thursday night the bombs -- there was sort of the police.
There's reports that there were other bombs that have been found.
Since then possibly of ominous CDs.
You know we need to know where they're more plans it's nice to see the city getting back to normal you know the Bruins are playing the Red Sox -- playing the Celtics play tonight.
And that's good for the spirit of the city but on the investigative and we we really do need to know where they're more plots other more people out there.
And we need to remain vigilant and know that it's not like we caught this nineteen year old kid -- it's over.
There was there was more going on here and I'm sure the law enforcement folks -- -- and I think also that we have to brace ourselves for some of these details.
Because they could be disturbing.
These guys lived among you.
Yeah -- you know when we spoke the first day it's you know remember 9/11 -- of the planes left from here.
A lot of these folks who lived in in and among us in Boston they have a lot of ties to -- -- -- hotels here.
So you know it's the same situation with these guys they lived together -- -- part of the fabric of our community.
They got scholarships -- schools.
They they they were not newspapers.
And you know they went to our colleges so who are they working with other of the folks involved for these people in New -- they picked up.
And what are they doing all these bombs and and what really happened on that we still don't know.
You have a three week old son by the name of Jackson.
What -- your talents and well a -- tell on that.
When he was a baby that.
I'll I'll explain what happened near Boston and that you know bad that people attacked us and I have a thirteen year old daughter -- -- of and she was a baby when 9/11 happened and I was down there so I've had to talk to her over the years -- 9/11 and have spoken at a school and you know what what I've seen and learned about it now I'll do the same as as my son grows up and unfortunately -- the world we live -- we have to talk to kids about.
