scary things happen and people totally lose their shit

i wonder if when we look back at yesterday from some time when the tragedy of the bombing is more distant, we will see the madness of shutting down a metro area of 3 million people to catch a single teenager with a gun.

not that a dangerous person with a gun fleeing the authorities isn't scary. it just happens more often than people might think. we simply don't react this way in any other case.
