Boston Marathon: No way to totally prevent a determined attack

  Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson and Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard talked at length Tuesday about the difficulty in preventing attacks at events like the Boston Marathon, in which attendance is free and there are no gates for spectators to enter where security measures can be put into place.

  In the short version of their comments, Bouchard notes that Americans are more naive than people in other countries who have lived with attacks for decades.

  In the longer version, Patterson talks about the country's loss of innocence. Bouchard talks about the need for increased awareness by the public.
