I will agree with her on one point she should never have brought them here.

Meanwhile, she fled the country while on bail for shoplifting! The dad can come over to claim the dead son but she can't because she'll be arrested!

She should just shut the ____ up.

And the media needs to ignore her. Seriously.

I believe he had, for lack of a better term, "conditions" that were significant obstacles to making friends or having a social life in his case.

Interestingly the deceased brother in the Boston case has been quoted claiming he had not one American friend, he didn't understand Americans. I've spent quite a lot of time thinking about that.

Yea, I got kind of the same vibe from the older brother as I did from Adam. Not quite to the same extreme but similar. The younger brother though seemed the exact opposite. Very social with plenty of friends. The dichotomy is very odd and it would have been beneficial I think to speak with both of them had they been taken alive.

I say let them speak. IMO it will only go to prove to anyone who attempts to invent any doubts that irrefutably these men slaughtered and maimed innocent people. The more information that comes to light, and out of the mouths of these folks, only shows they are incapable of plain truth and are chronically malcontent within any society whose doorstep they darken.

Nice.
pretty ironic for her that these felony charges that aren't a big deal and are unimportant to her are now stopping her from coming to get her dead son, and possibly seeing her live son. Too bad, so sad for her.

she came here, lived free and safe, took our taxpayers dollars, our country gave her sons the best life they could have ever asked for, she steals from us, flees, her sons blow up and shoot our citizens... and she thinks "she & her boys good/america baaaaad". My god, she's a loonytoon!!!

I agree. Adam had mental/developmental issues.

Yet he married an American woman who worked outside the home .

off topic for just a second please.
I wanted to post this . There is this site through Facebook trying to spread a little joy and happiness in the wake of this recent tragedy. They are sending Boston Strong ducks around the world for people to post pictures with and pass on. The idea is meant to show the world is with Boston especially in this difficult time! It's a really cute idea and also a lot of fun. Pictures will be popping up on the page of the ducks and where they are! If you want to join in the fun or just follow the activity go to www.Facebook.com/bostonstrongducks1

The more I hear about her the more I wonder if she had a mental condition that also got passed down to her sons. It's all just so weird.

I'm in California. What is the tie in to the ducks? Just curious.

I read that Sweet Caroline went off the charts on ITUNES.

Boston Globe has an interview with the man who was carjacked. They're requiring a 99 cent fee to view it, but our local newspaper has it reprinted for free.

Can't say for absolute sure since I didn't create the Facebook page but I think there are 2 tie ins...

One is that Boston is known for it's 'Duck Tours'.

And two is that there is a police officer in the town near Newtown where Sandy Hook Elem is currently located doing this. He is assigned to the school. They got a bunch of rubber ducks donated and he's been using them to help the kids be ok with school again. He also has a Facebook page 'The Ducks of Sandy Hook' I think it is. So I believe this might be a copycat sort of thing (that sounds negative but I don't mean it that way).

There's a book, "Make Way For Ducklings". It's a children's book set in Boston. There's a statue of the ducklings in Boston's Public Garden.

What is the connection with Boston & Sweet Caroline? Is it Caroline Kennedy?
