Governor Shuts Down T Service as Bomber Manhunt Continues

The subway system is shut down while the bomber manhunt continues.

After a bloody night and multiple gunfights, one suspected bomber is dead and the other remains at large. Governor Deval Patrick requested the MBTA suspend service until further notice as a safety precaution. That includes subway, buses and commuter rail.

Officials asked anyone at a T station or bus to go home. Residents of Watertown, Newton, Waltham, Belmont, Cambridge, Alston/Brighton are asked to stay at home and indoors, businesses to remain closed and avoid mass transit.

I still don't see how putting our lives on hold is helping.

Whitney, it's not... It's a method of cutting off means of escape for the scummer who did this.

It's for our protection while the police systematically flush the scumbag out. The authorities aren't doing this to punish us, please don't think of it that way.

He is probably on a flight out of JFK by now. If the havent found him by now he is long gone.

Systematically, that's laughable. The older brother was interviewed by the FBI over two years ago AT THE REQUEST OF A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT for having extremist ties. The younger brother was able to ESCAPE ON FOOT. Now he's history and probably on his way to Somalia.
