Boston Bombing Suspect Arrested


A 30-count indictment was entered against Dzokhar Tsarnaev. It described blood-scrawled confessions found in the boat in which he hid

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

UPDATE, 8:25 PM  Sat. night Israel Time: Federal terrorism charges against Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev could be filed soon, even as he remains hospitalized, a Justice Department official told CNN on Saturday. The 19-year-old could also face murder charges at the state level.

UPDATE 7:12 pm ET Reports that suspect was hiding in boat, under tarp, behind a house in Watertown.

7:06 pm ET shots heard, police cars moving back into the area in Watertown.  There is an ambulance being backed up into a driveway.  Police in SWAT vehicles roaring out of Boston towards Watertown. Some reports, “suspect down.”

6:11 pm ET final scheduled press conference of the day Massachusetts State Police Colonel Timothy Alben explained that many leads were followed up on and were “not fruitful.”  The police and military presence will be reduced, although still a substantial presence will remain in place until probably Monday.  “We are committed to seeing a conclusion in this case.”

Gov. Deval Patrick said the MBTA (mass transit) system is being re-opened.  The “stay indoors” requirement has been lifted, but everyone is being encouraged to “remain vigilant.”

Mayor Menino: Thanks everyone, there are many leads still being pursued.

Watertown Mayor: We will continue to have a “saturated presence.”  The designated crime scene over a large 20 square block area in Watertown will be taken down in the next few hours.

Everyone is being asked to continue to call in any possible sightings of Dzokhar Tsarnaev.

The officials are being asked, “how can it be that the lockdown is being lifted, yet an armed and very dangerous individual is still on the loose?”  Excellent question, although because the officials are reluctant to discuss the details of the investigation, it could indicate that  - this is pure speculation – the suspect is either in custody or is known to be severely injured.  Col. Alber said he is “confident” that the suspect remains in Massachusetts, and the reason he gave is because “all of his ties are here.”  However, we already know the suspect has an aunt in Canada, a sister in West New York, New Jersey and an uncle in Maryland.

 

2:45 pm ET It was just announced that the missing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, became a naturalized U.S. citizen on September 11, 2012.

2:15 pm ET press conference with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry coming up.

1:25 pm Emily Long, next door neighbor to the Tsarnaev family for a year and a half, said they were “very polite, helpful” and “sweet.”  Tamarlin was the oldest, then two sisters, and the youngest is Dzhokhar.  The parents had been lawyers in Russia.  Their father had, according to Long, been beaten badly by the KGB, and that was why they were given political asylum in the United States.  Note, this is information given by a neighbor, it is unconfirmed thus far.

1:18 pm ET According to Fox News, the older Tsarnaev brother had social media accounts praising allah and Chechen separatism, and also a YouTube account containing violent videos, and he spent approximately 6 months abroad last year.  He was arrested in 2011 for assaulting his girlfriend.

A noon press conference given by Massachusetts, Boston and Watertown political leaders had nothing new to reveal, but implored people to stay inside and not to open their doors to anyone other than uniformed police officers.  Watertown mayor thanked everyone for their cooperation, but insisted they “need more time.”

Airspace over Boston area is closed indefinitely.

A controlled detonation took place in Cambridge this afternoon.  The Tsarnaev brothers lived in an apartment in Cambridge.

11:00 am ET: Ruslan Tsarnaev, uncle of the two suspects gave a press conference Friday morning outside his home in Montgomery Village, Maryland.  The uncle, who said he had not seen the boys in many years, was visibly agitated.

According to the uncle of the suspects, the brothers are not what he calls “Chechens,” whom he said are “peaceful people.”  The uncle said neither boy was born in Chechnya, although the younger boy was born in Dhagastan, which borders on Chechnya.

When asked what he wants to tell his nephew, Ruslan Tsarnaev said:

If you are alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness from the victims, from the injured.  We are ashamed, you have put shame on the entire [Chechen] ethnicity.  Turn yourself in!

 

The suspect still living, 19 year old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is known to be registered as a student at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.  That school is closed today and is in the process of being evacuated.

    After the Benghazi Massacre, it only took the holy one and hillary minutes to find some obscure 10-second video to blame everything on so they could try and avoid having to use the dreaded "T" word and allow the murderers time to escape.

    The Boston jihadists have been posting jihadist and nazi videos (they go together) for well over a year and wonders of wonders obama and his crew never found them.

    I wonder why that is?

  2. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    obamamedia is FUMING! For days, they have been declaring that the massacre was "obviously carried out by old white right wing gun nuts celebrating Hitler's birthday" (quoting NPR and Maddow).

    Now we find they are the run of the mill jihadists Pamela Geller keeps warning about, only to be rebuffed as an "islamophobe."

    With maddow, nbc, cnn, npr, and Huff Po already reaching to blame the NRA and "gun nuts" even after the full identification, we all know that soon enough, the conspiracy sites – including the gaza based nazi owned haaretz – will find ways to blame the Jews, with the usual litany of kapos posting on JP that Geller and other "islamophobic Jews instigated the massacre."

    Welcome to the united states of obama, a redo of Germany 1939.

    Here is proof that the murderers in Boston are extremists Muslims. Now do you believe me? It is in Russian, but I am having someone translate it. It is his Facebook with extremist Muslim beliefs. Check out it out for yourself. My Synagogue and I have been threatened and damage was done to my garage door.

    Has any one noticed the irony of the Boston bomber ending up in a Jewish hospital, when he wakes up and ask where am I, he is going to Sh/t his pants.

  7. Gayle Gerard says:

    You're what I refer to as an American terrorist.

  8. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Gayle Gerard I understand that to Brits like you, who have surrendered England to your new jihadist overlords and have willfully surrendered all rights, anyone daring to fight back against terror is the enemy. Curious tho why supporters of jihad like you keep coming to Jewish media to spew your hate.

    I presume this is your neighborhood?

    Add to that that his doctors are Jewish AND were trauma trained in Israel!

  10. Dan Silagi says:

    I knew if there could be some way, no matter how far-fetched and tangential it might be, to blame this on Clinton and Obama, the commenters here would find a way. If one needs to find the Rosetta Stone of blame in this, try Joe Stalin, who persecuted Chechens before, during, and after WWII.

  11. Dan Silagi says:

    You, Arie, are what I refer to as an idiot.

  12. They should both rot in H. Wake up America. This is pre-Nazi Germany and the extremists are the Nazis. Have no mercy for they want to murder us. Remember the innocent child and young people and those who died and who are without limbs. Remember 911. Have no mercy for they seek a heaven with virgins that do not exist while we want to live only in peace. Rabbi DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG P.S. I AM a clergyman who who will never forgive or forget what the Nazis did when THEY MURDERED MY FAMILY, innocent babies and men and women. I have no mercy on villains.
