Bill Bratton on FBI photos and video: "The idea of putting this information out to the public is to effectively get information"

On a day which saw the FBI release photos and video of two men wanted in connection with a pair of deadly bombings at Monday's Boston Marathon, on Thursday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Bill Bratton to share his incomparable brand of professional insight and perspective.

A former commissioner of the Boston Police Department, Bratton shared some of the conclusions he's drawn since learning of the new evidence:

"Well, quite clearly, they have enough information to focus on these individuals as suspects. Not just persons of interest, but suspects," he told Piers Morgan. "That's a much higher level of confidence that these two individuals are, in fact, involved in the bombings."

As part of Thursday's face to face, exclusive interview, Bratton also offered his reasoning as to why authorities chose to release the footage at this point in the investigation:

"The idea of putting this information out to the public at this stage is to effectively do what law enforcement does: get information from the public. Most of these cases are solved because of public information," Bratton told the host. "It's not necessarily just great detective work. Great detective work is taking information and then effectively making intelligence out of it."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Bratton reveals more of the expertise he acquired while running the police forces in some of the nation's largest cities.

Anyone with information should call the bureau's toll-free number, 800-CALL-FBI (800-225-5324).

    Did you notice in the clearest suspect photo, a man in front of him with a MIT shirt. Coincidence?

      MAYBE BOTH OR ONE OF THE SUSPECTS ATTEND MIT OR ARE FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENTS OF MIT. MAYBE THE POLICE OFFICER THAT WAS SHOT AND KILLED , RECOGNIZED ONE OF THEM. JUST A THOUGHT AND POSSIBILITY. I SAW THE MIT LABEL ON THE JACKET OF THE GUY NEAR THE #2 SUSPECT, TOO.

    Looking at the I new picture of the suspect taken from the iPhone I see that the other suspect is in the background in khaki pants next to the lady in the pink shirt
