Yikes. The only way the 2 amateur bombers would have been spotted is to have more surveillance cameras being watched in real time or cops lined up at every block. Or without an enormous amount of security checks, which adds cost to the Boston Marathon, would drum up a ton of scrutiny for invasion of privacy, and would likely have led to a confiscation of guns including CCW. All would require a massive police state that nobody wants, especially conservatives.
So I have no idea what you're trying to imply, other than just spitting out talking points about government programs. The Boston PD did an excellent job here on an attack that would have been difficult to stop.
