Stunning police helicopter video shows assault on Boston Marathon bombing Suspect 2

The Boston state police have released an amazing video, filmed with a normal camera, infrared, and night vision (I think), of the police raid on Boston Marathon bombing  Suspect #2 Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 19 year old.

I’m not going to touch up the pictures in photoshop, though they could use it, since I want you tos see exactly what the police themselves saw.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, this is Suspect 2, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev:

First a normal shot. You can clearly see the boat:

Then an infrared shot, I’m pretty sure, of the boat and the backyard – you can see that the boat is covered with a tarp – he’s inside:

Infrared shot, I'm pretty sure.

Then an infrared of either a robot, or a police vehicle with an arm, peeling the tarp off of the boat – at the top, in the boat, you can see the heat signature of Suspect 2 laying down.

The cops throw in a flash-bang stun grenade, after the tarp is removed:

Suspect 2 just laying there, though you can see his hand moving slightly – the round ball at the top is his head.  Clearly the guy was majorly injured and not going anywhere.  If they hadn’t found him that night, I wonder if he’d have survived.
