This nightmare may be far from over, but now that the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, has been apprehended alive in Watertown, Massachusetts following a 24-hour-manhunt that left his older brother and first suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev and MIT officer Sean Collier shot dead, the nation can at least begin to move toward healing with the comfort of knowing that justice is on its way to being served.
After the incredible heroism displayed by local, state and federal officers in the Boston suburb last night, President Barack Obama held a press conference at The White House, where he addressed the nation and commended the citizens of Boston for standing up in the face of terror and proving what a united, compassionate community they truly are.
Ch-ch-check out his powerful words (above).

The suspects' father is so distraught over everything, he's now claiming his boys must have been framed!
Anzor Tsarnaev spoke with ABC News Friday morning, speaking of disbelief and begging for his son to surrender peacefully.
He also warned "hell will break loose" if his younger son is killed and admitted his suspicions:
"If they kill my second child, I will know that it is an inside job, a hit job. The police are to blame. Someone, some organization is out to get them."
Well, Anzor didn't stop there. He reportedly gave another interview to Russian TV, insisting Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's innocence, commenting:

One suspect is dead. One is still at large.

His father has already warned that "hell will break loose" if he dies, setting an even more chilling tone to the situation.

Ruslan Tsarni, an uncle of the Boston bombing suspects, told the press his nephews deserve to die on Friday.
Telling them he was "absolutely shocked" and "absolutely devastated" when he realized Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were the suspects, he said it was absolutely unbelievable in his family.
His anger quickly took control of him, as he began indignantly yelling during his time with the media, telling them:
"These are my nephews! My brother's sons. It's a big family … the parents are still in Russia. They are from a hard-working family who ran away. A good family. This is terrible. I have no sympathy for them. I hate them – they murdered people! … They're barbarians, wherever they are. They do not deserve to be on this earth. … What can I say? They murdered. … This is not a reflection of my family or of Islam. It is a reflection of stupidity."
His guess to the motive?

Boston has been on lockdown ever since the suspects who allegedly planted the bombs have been on the loose.
But since suspect #1, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was shot by police and later died in the hospital after he gunned down a campus cop at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology last night, suspect #2, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is still roaming around and is causing everyone to stay inside.
This manhunt is affecting everyone, and the Boston Bruins are no exception, as they have canceled practice in order to stay safe.
