Boston – The City That Now Sleeps

Thanks to the incredible eye for detail, the heroic bravery, and the calm, cool, and collected approach of a citizen in the city of Watertown, MA., the city of Boston can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing that justice shall soon be served.

David Hannebury, owner of the prize-winning boat which served as a hideout shelter for 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, stepped out of his home located at 67 Franklin Street in Watertown, MA. immediately following the release of a city-wide lockdown enforced while authorities intensely searched the city of Boston and local communities for the suspect.

As Mr. Hannebury roamed his property, he noticed the sounds of movement in his boat located in his backyard. Upon closer inspection, he noticed the strap securing the winterized tarp was severed. He then proceeded to take a peek under the tarp, and saw a pool of blood with a trail that led to what looked like a body curled up in a ball.

Without causing a disturbance around this horrific scene, Mr. Hannebury quietly notified authorities immediately. Helicopters were summoned over the area to use a heat-seeking device to pick up the thermal image of the suspect still lying inside the boat. With the assistance of this thermal image, law enforcement teams were meticulously guided around the backyard of Mr. Hannebury’s property, resulting in a victorious apprehension of the suspect.

The suspect was taken alive but in serious condition to a nearby hospital. Locals cheered in the streets after a nightmarish week filled with panic, anxiety, and distress caused by the captured suspect and his accomplice, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaerv, was finally over.

On Monday, April 15, 2013, the Tsarnaerv brothers were video taped by surveillance cameras along Boylston Street carrying backpacks similar to the one found after the pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line at the Boston Marathon, killing 3 people along with severely injuring and dismembering several spectators.

Law enforcement authorities embarked on an intense manhunt for the two suspects over a course of 72 hours following this tragic event, resulting in the killing of Tamerlan Tsarnaerv in a shootout after the duo attempted to elude police in a stolen sports utility vehicle.

Although injured, his brother managed to escape police using the stolen vehicle, and this led to the lockdown of the city of Boston and its surrounding communities. At approximately 8:45 pm on Friday, April 19, 2013, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was finally captured.

Mr. Hannebury may have lost a boat for the moment, but he will always be remembered as Boston’s hero forever.
Thank you, Mr. Hannebury! I think we all owe you a boat…

  1. It will be interesting to see how this turns out. Were they acting alone or as part of a greater organization? Americans need to understand that our country is not immune to being attacked. And as long as our govt insists on throwing the weight of our military around – willfully bullying weaker nations on behalf of corporations – we are going to get a bloody nose from time to time.


      • Thank-you! πŸ™‚

        Most likely it will be quite some time before the entire story is nailed down and the most we can do for now. Is to remain patient and let the authorities do their job while doing all we can to help, console and comfort the victims.


  2. So sad for the people who have lost their lives 😦 I also hope that the government do not see this as yet another opportunity for a further ‘war on terror’ 😦 Unfortunately when a country is skint (as both of our countries are) we go to war …. I hope not.


      • You know how the government loves to rule by fear, they did it before, What was this war on terror about. Obvs I am not in US so I don’t see the footage, but I bet it i turned up to full volume of instilling fear into people. Which would give justification for another war.

        When the country is skint…. it often goes to war. We have the whole thing with South Korea, how we won’t not pay into trident – billions, but we are skint…. so its kind of scary as this is nuclear war 😦


        • You’re right. Not to sound cold-hearted, but enough of this watching a 19-yr old and put more focus on that really crazy guy in Korea. He won’t be throwing just pots and pans at us ya know. He’s got the real deal…


          • He sure is crazy, saw photos the other day of how he makes his female soldiers march in high heels. Worst is that I do not trust our government at all. I know that we are in serious financial trouble and they are desperate. I Have no idea what comes next. Right now in UK, the government are attacking their own people, the sick and the disabled. Unbelievable, they are desperate, and desperate times, call for desperate measures. This whole thing with Bin Laden, I think they killed him long before they admitted it, to keep the war on terror going. It was very convenient that they announced it right after a Royal Wedding. And oddly he couldn’t get time off for a honeymoon – yet he is a Prince, and it was planned for more than a year? There are many psychopaths in power of our countries – its scary stuff. ah, sorry I went off on a tangent – sometimes I wish I wrote a more general blog and could write about different topics.


  3. I read something the other day about new USA policy, where the American government knows the wherabouts of every American on the planet, and where and how they are storing their money. That level of control, is scary. Does make you wonder whether it is true…. perhaps we are moving towards the end of times. Governments in power in UK have pretty much destroyed our economy in the last 30 years. We really are in a bad way. Yet, over that time, we constantly went to war, paid for wars which were unecessary (war with Iraq) ….I have no idea where this is headed, but it won’t be pretty. But – do we even have money to go to war? And…. I never really understood how war made money?


  4. I just want to tell you that I’m newbie to blogs and honestly loved your web blog. Almost certainly I’m planning to bookmark your blog post . You definitely come with good writings. Bless you for revealing your website page.
