I thought it has been a standard and well-known procedure to deploy US Special Forces to provide additional (counter-terrorism) security in mass happenings on US soil since at least Atlanta 1996 anyhow...
And uhm...so is every individual carrying a backpack considered automatically suspicious from now on? Not to mention having a wired handsfree headset on your ear. Count me in every time I go bicycling.
If this guy was able to get his hands on another car, his escape possibilities are many. Watertown Sq. is less than a half mile from a Mass Turnpike on-ramp. If he goes east, toward downtown Boston, he's minutes from Logan Airpot and the Back Bay Amtrak station. West, the rte 95/128 interchange is only a few miles away. The good news is that there are toll booths along the way. One only a mile east of Watertown. And where there are toll booths, there are toll takers and cameras. But if he were able to squeeze through, he's got north, south, and west escape routes available to him. Yeesh!
