MILWAUKEE - Local law enforcement experts say they've never seen anything like the response this morning in Boston during the shootout that killed one suspect and the manhunt for the other one.

Closing off an entire city makes the job a whole lot easier for the guys looking for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

It means anyone on the streets is suspicious, especially if they don't answer to police.

Former Dodge County Sheriff' Todd Nehls says right now there's a methodical search for this guy.

"Vast law enforcement resources, both local, state and federal resources, and they're going to hopefully contain this guy with a circle, and squeeze the circle smaller and smaller," said former Dodge County Sheriff Todd Nehls.

Another expert reveals the dangerous nature of the actions Tsarnaev may take during this manhunt.

"They want to kill people.  They're not afraid of confronting the police.  That's why you're seeing extraordinary measures right now," said former Waukesha County Sheriff's Detective Steve Pederson to Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Jon Byman.
