Unfortunately, I was so riveted by the manhunt and the capture that I didn't get a piece of writing done overnight and the analyst in Dublin was rightly annoyed this morning.
That kid has to be the least hard-bitten criminal I've ever seen on a "Wanted" poster. That is sooo NOT what I'd pictured a terrorist to look like. In fact, if you removed the context of the poster & online photos and asked me to guess who or what he was, and what he did, I'd guess him as a singer/dancer in a boy band that targets tween girls.
What the heck happened here?
Why did they stay in town?
And why did they suddenly snap, go berserk, shoot a guy and carjack another person?
And no, I don't feel safe, because they seem like a relative pair of amateurs, one maybe even a half-hearted copycat, and yet they managed to harden themselves & do this.
The story will be reconstructed soon, I hope.
