Ed Deveau, Watertown, Mass. police chief, stands on Laurel Street where Boston Marathon bombing suspect brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev allegedly exchanged gunfire with law enforcement officers, in Watertown. Deveau, like many others, refuses to say their names: "You'll get me to say, 'older brother, younger brother.' ... I think they get way too much attention. They tried to put fear in this city and they failed miserably." Deveau will run with 11 other Watertown police officers. Nine of them have never run a marathon before.
