Maybe it annoys me less because I'm not fluent in French. I just zone out during the French segments.

Though being an anglophone in NB is about as bad as being one in QC.

Quoted for truth, although it has gotten somewhat tighter in the last year. They now have Amtrak police with sniffer dogs at the New London station where I take the train to Boston. Before that it and the Providence station were wide open.

Their father should be actively crapping himself, nonstop. He now has strong links to Chechen terrorists. In Russia. It would behoove him to keep his mouth shut and be a model citizen for the rest of his life, unless he thinks polonium is a tasty seasoning.

I just don't get it. I couldn't live with myself if I was furthering my career on the heels of a senseless terrorist attack where innocent people -- including a child -- were killed.

He's going to be charged both federal and in Mass so they have 2 shots at it.

I will not be surprised to learn one day that he has just...disappeared. Russian state security is still to be feared there.

Have you thank the Americans too for their co-operation from the FBI.

There's also some speculation that the attacks could have involved routes connecting Toronto and New York, potentially targeting both Canadian and American citizens.

The lawyers that defend this guy are gonna be absolutely raking in the cash. Win or lose the case, the defense is going to get 1) loads of money and 2) loads of exposure. In that line of work, when you get THAT good (and arent doing traffic cases), it's ruthless. All about the $.

I think they'll plead insanity. It seems like the only defense that CAN work in this situation

I'm anglo and don't care. Being anglo in Quebec all I care about is that things are bilingual. As long as they do that, I find it fair.

Human shield formed at Krystle Campbell funeral to block potential protesters
Hundreds gathered on the sidewalk across from the funeral of Krystle Campbell Monday to block a possible protest by the radical Westboro Baptist Church.

Organized by the Local Teamsters, the crowd formed a human shield, covering the sidewalk across from the church over 100 yards along High Street west of Boynton Road, starting before 9 a.m.
While the blocking of possible protests was organized by the Teamsters, it drew many people without union ties.

I dont know to much about trains and how they operate, or if the plot was to hi-jack one or something else.

But, i would hope the technology exists to stop a hi-jacked train remotely.

Absolutely. From what I can gather, the FSB has done a solid job picking up right where the KGB left off. By the time he notices his food makes his mouth tingle, it's too late. Or by the time he notices he's being thrown out a plane in the middle of Siberia, it's too late.

Yeah, but it's still insanity. This article is going around my college in NY State, and it's making my blood absolutely boil. I personally will not forgive or forget.

If anyone was confused a/b some of the radio calls (i.e. woman's mother called, daughter being held at gun point by man w/ a gun in watertown). I got the skinny on that, but I'm not posting it here.

So much radio traffic made it seem they were on to him, then ended up being unrelated.

I'm glad they were able to stop this proposed terrorist attack, it's a shame the Boston Marathon Bombings couldn't be stopped too. The past week though, it's been nice to see the way all of us North Americans come together during hard times and help each other through it. Despite the fact that Canadians and Americans like to poke fun at each other and there is a certain rivalry between us at times (especially on the ice), it's nice to know that when push comes to shove, we have each other's backs. Glad to have you guys as neighbours.

Just as I thought the Westboro Baptist Church didn't show for Kryslte Campbell's funeral and thankfully so. I'm glad the teamsters did their part to block them had they shown up. The only issue I have is the WBC is now getting the media attention they want now without even showing, all they gotta do is threaten to show and the media runs with it and it gets plastered all over facebook, twitter, etc.

He's a priest. He is in the business of forgiveness. And yes he is a much better Christian/Catholic than I am because like you I will neither forgive nor forget.
