While I agree for the most part with you Kevin, the police sucked in Boston. They couldn't find this guy who escaped only a few blocks. It was only after they let people come out of their homes and stopped doing illegal searches of homes that a "civilian" found the guy. One can only assume if they had allowed people their freedom to be out and about as they saw fit, they would have found the guy sooner. So what most Americans think, really doesn't matter, the facts are what matter and MOST Americans think what the media tells them to think. Sadly. And I'm not sure cops can just shoot someone for running from a crime scene.
