Sure, the security agencies are militarized and armed

to the teeth

Perfect opportunity for them to break out their toys gathering dust for so long, no surprise there. But the people in the Boston area want this guy caught and will make even the smallest gesture to help, such as staying inside to keep the streets clear to let the police play manhunt. Perhaps the flip side of this sans police presence might be an angry mob and potential riot situation, where many more people could get hurt. Not to justify the tanks and grenades, of course, but if there is one place an angry mob could coalesce to catch someone accused of this crime it's Boston. These people don't play, police and civilians alike. You can ask any Yankees fan that's been to a Red Sox game, they would agree.
