2) “One more detail from NBC: “Police were able to find Conditt using a variety of tactics, including coming up with a list of phone numbers and individuals that were in the area of the bombings when they occurred, using cell-site analysis and high-tech computing systems that can find patterns of callers in certain areas.” If you’re a true-crime fan, you know that it never ceases to amaze how many premeditated murderers forget to leave their phones at home after springing their plot, knowing full well that the cops can triangulate location from cell-phone towers. The bomber apparently turned his phone on hours before the cops caught up to him last night, helping them zero in on where he was.”

Locate a cell that matches them all, then track the cell to locate the per. Extremely high tech stuff here...... HOWEVER, how on Earth did the feds get access to THAT MUCH data so quickly, and exactly how much computing power would be needed to filter and analyze that data set. This is some next level Patriot Act secret Bush-era NSA cell phone warrantless tapping nanny state-ing going on here. Not that I’m complaining, it allowed them to find this phycho...
