GungFu: ACunningPlan: One of the most interesting insights into Tamerlan's personality so far comes from a photo album, titled "Will Box For Passport," that photographer Johannes Hirn took of the slain suspect. Tamerlan was apparently a boxer who hoped to gain citizenship by being selected for the U.S. Olympic team: "Unless his native Chechnya becomes independent, Tamerlan says he would rather compete for the United States than for Russia," Hirn wrote.Other captions paint Tamerlan as a devoted Muslim. "I'm very religious," he says at one point, noting that he does not smoke or drink alchol. "There are no values anymore," he says, worrying that "people can't control themselves."Tamerlan also appears isolated and bewildered by American life. "I don't have a single American friend," he laments, despite living in the United States for five years. "I don't understand them."Maybe this is why he targeted a sporting event; and maybe being a devout Muslim had nothing to do with this?Huh?
CognaciousThunk: Nobody is saying where the suspect posted his 'You Killed My Brother' line... FARK? 4chan? Etsy?
FrancoFile: Fissile: FrancoFile: Fissile: Wait, I'm confused. Aren't Chechens some of the "good Muslims" that Murica aided and abetted in attacking the Russians? Didn't the US of Murica repeatedly condemn the Russians for dropping cluster bombs on these "good Muslims"? It appears that these Chechens made their way here from Turkey. Isn't Turkey a "good Muslim" country that is a solid friend to Murica, and, even more importantly, a good friend to Israel? Wasn't Bin Laden armed by Murica when he was killing Russians? Sure is funny how the "good Muslims" that the US encourages to attack the Russians always seem to end up turning on Murica.Um, no.The Chechens are not 'good Muslims' and the US has never supported them. They are ethnic gangsters, pure and simple, and their religion just makes it easier for them to get support from radical Islamists in other countries.=============Your tiny Fox News contaminated mind can't admit the truth, can it? The US has REPEATEDLY CONDEMNED THE RUSSIANS FOR DEFENDING THEMSELVES FROM THE CHECHENS. Every time the Chechens blew up a grade school in Russia, Dick Cheney would cream himself. So, to sum up, FARK YOU.Hey Dickwad. Yeah, you.I lived in Russia for two years, when the Chechens were just starting to flex their muscles after the end of the Soviet Union. I was there when Dudayev was in power, and bombs were going off in Moscow. I worked with ordinary Russians - including ones who came from neighboring regions of the Caucuses - who told me about how long the Chechens had been an integral part of organized crime, going back to before the October Revolution.The US criticized the Russians for using egregious levels of force in the Beslan hostage taking, but condemned the hostage-takers. I was still in touch with friends there when it happened.So stop living in a fantasy world, Dickwad.
WTF Indeed: Give the kid a taste of home and burn him out like the Russians police do in Chechnya California.
thiefofdreams: Shyla: Theaetetus: luxup: Radio just said Guy is 'forcing their line posting online' and saying 'You killed my brother'FTFYThat is from a paradoy Twitter account. https://twitter.com/Dzhokhar_AParody implies humor. This asshole has farked up police procedures. Another asshat on the internet that can't wait for this to be over to do dumb shiat.It is not funny, nor humorous, just sick.
common sense is an oxymoron: common sense is an oxymoron: Gray house on Boylston Street, guy in gray hoodie with a laptop.242 Boylston.
fat_free: Question: Is suspect hatless?
yukichigai: DamnYankees: If these dudes are innocent, this is gonna be horrible.Shooting at cops and flinging IEDs out randomly is TOTALLY innocent behavior.
luxup: But if we really want to inject politics into this...Clinton - 1st World Trade bombers caught on his watchObama - Perpetrators of 1st and 2nd worse terrorist attacks apprehended (matter of time) under his watch.But enough of that. Radio just said Guy is 'forcing their line' and saying 'You killed my brother' Me thinks we may be at his breaking point. Man, this is going to make one hell of a movie.
common sense is an oxymoron: 242 Boylston
muck4doo: Why would Chechens be mad at the U.S?
miss diminutive: Posting online now? This is just too surreal.
bugontherug: Everyone was speculating
Theaetetus: Shyla: Theaetetus: luxup: Radio just said Guy is 'forcing their line posting online' and saying 'You killed my brother'FTFYThat is from a paradoy Twitter account. https://twitter.com/Dzhokhar_AWell, duh. But that's the one they've been repeating on the scanner.
muck4doo: So much has happened since I posted last night. So, white muslins? Looks like everybody gets to be a little right.Muslin
USP .45: Fissile: Even now the Tea-hadists on Fox are trying to spin this by calling this pair "Russians".They've said nothing but "Chechen." Also Chechyna is part of Russia, and I can't even count the number of ethnicities within Russia.
Kittypie070: you STILL ran over your farking brother.wanker.
Coco LaFemme: I'm not reading through over 1000 posts......someone give me a recap on what's happened.
Walker: Kittypie070: waah waah you kilt mah brudder waah snivel I kill uYOU RAN OVER YOUR BROTHER WITH THE SUV YOU WITLESS VOMIT SACKTHIS!!!
Shyla: Thinking maybe it's not a parody account. I guess he could have made the account while he was on the run this morning. I checked when his name first came out and it just had those first two tweets there. He has since tweeted in Russian (?) - Who knows, maybe it is real.
vudukungfu: This just in. CNN's reporting that the 7-11 clerk wasn't even supposed to be there that day.
Shyla: Smgth: Shyla: Smgth: Shyla: I need a snack, anyone want anything while I'm up?Go pee for me.Imma dood, so you gotta do it standing up.I'll try, I guess it will work if I stand in the right place.SO it's merely a stance thing not a biologic design problem? I KNEW IT! Putting the seat down is a feminist conspiracy!/Ooooooh, the other women are gonna be mad you let that slip...Don't tell anyone, but it's not only possible, it's kinda fun.
Haliburton Cummings: KIDS KIDS< GO TO THE POLITICS THREAD WITH YOUR DRIVEL AND LET THE ADULTS RUBBERNECK IN PEACE OK
Frederick: Walker: Kittypie070: waah waah you kilt mah brudder waah snivel I kill uYOU RAN OVER YOUR BROTHER WITH THE SUV YOU WITLESS VOMIT SACKTHIS!!!You dont know that. Be a little more critical thinking could ya?
unchellmatt: Grand_Moff_Joseph: Updated badge for your use:[lh5.googleusercontent.com image 360x350]I work for the MIT Police, so I'm getting a kick, yadda yadda and... Thanks for that. For those who are curious, the man killed was a very nice guy, and more than that, he was a Geek, and a damned good one. "We lost one of our own" takes on a double meaning for me now.This is what we're wearing.[web.mit.edu image 850x919]
pag1107: Coco LaFemme: I'm not reading through over 1000 posts......someone give me a recap on what's happened.The assclowns who bombed the marathon shot some cops last night so now the cops shot one of them and are about to shoot the other.
WhyteRaven74: muck4doo: Why would Chechens be mad at the U.S?Well if this had anything to do with them being Chechens, there is how cozy the US has been with Russia. But given how long the brothers have been in the US, I suspect their ethnicity is about as relevant as their preferences in shoe brands.
