The Boston bombers were planning more attacks across the city and were already building the bombs to do this says the city’s police commissioner Ed Davis.

Davis says it’s his belief that 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan ‘were going to attack other individuals’ — and Davis says that’s based on the evidence at the scene and the cache of weapons the brothers had at their disposal.

However, Davis claims releasing photos of the two Boston Marathon bombing suspects ‘forced them out of their hideout’ and spurred them into Thursday and Friday’s deadly night time car chaos and gun battle with law enforcement.

‘It forced them out of their hideout and they decided to commit further violent acts. But it’s my belief that they were already manufacturing explosive devices. Further violent acts were inevitable,’ Davis told The Boston Globe.

  1. This wasn’t a lone wolf operation, they were trained (at least the older one was) in bomb making and terror tactics. Their attack was carried out with skill but their followup was spoiled by several things including the security cameras and the net spreading the pictures from the cameras.

    There is a report that the injuries the older one suffered was because the younger one panicked and ran over him as he was being handcuffed, his body was suppose to have been dragged for several seconds.
