As news continues to break regarding the horrific Boston Marathon bombing suspects, celebrities are taking to their social media sites to give their input.
According to NBC News, one of the suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed early Friday morning (April 19) after he and his brother/accomplice, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, robbed a 7-Eleven, killed a police office, stole an SUV and threw explosives at law enforcement during a standoff.
Police are now on a manhunt in the Boston suburb Watertown, MA and urged all residents in the surrounding areas to stay indoors.
In light of the reports, Alec Baldwin tweeted, The effects of terrorism on our society will get worse before [they] get better. The presence of police as a paramilitary force in our society will now grow to new levels.
Cameras, bomb-sniffing dogs, checkpoints, etc, will expand exponentially the notion that someone capable of brutal, cold-blooded and random killing walks openly in public will further shape our lives. [The] cost of security measures will skyrocket. Further diverting funds meant for other, equally important goals, in American society.Tweeting a simple observation re our society always yields 1 benefit. I can block all right-wing idiots that come out of their foxholes. The bravery and effectiveness of police is a blessing. Their presence is welcome, in times like these. Yet it highlights something.”
