THIS!!!

You dont know that.   Be a little more critical thinking could ya?

The brother had already been shot up and exploded before he was run over.


The online postings about "...you killed my brother" are uncorroborated and also reported as fake.  (you dont know that)

That the first brother being run over or by whom is also uncorroborated.  (you dont know that)

The two pieces of information taken together are nonsensical.

Given that so far there's no evidence he's Chechen or ever spent time there and he's been in the US for 10 years? Not in this case.


Wow. You are really holding on to hope that you can blame this on the right somehow, aren't you.

s2s2s2: bugontherug: Everyone was speculating

I saw a lot of hopeful speculating that they were white. I heard very little speculating, otherwise. Anyone I did see speculating non-white wasn't doing it hopefully.

To be fair, I watched no cable news, and only skimmed the threads. It was just much easier to find "white hope" in these threads.


Define "hopeful speculating".

Shyla: Theaetetus: Shyla: Theaetetus: luxup: Radio just said Guy is 'forcing their line posting online' and saying 'You killed my brother'

FTFY

That is from a paradoy Twitter account. https://twitter.com/Dzhokhar_A

Well, duh. But that's the one they've been repeating on the scanner.

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.


It has this in Russian:

вас всех убьем, как вы убили моего брата Тамерлана Царнаев # Watertown один убит, я думаю, один ранен,,,, иди к черту

Google translate:

will kill you all, you killed my brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev # Watertown one was killed, I think one was injured,,,, go to hell

And the previous tweet was in English:

I will kill you all as you killed my brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev #watertown one killed i think one injured;;;; gooooo hell

The previous tweet was translated nearly perfectly with Google translate...so I'm calling bullshiat - whoever it is just plugged that English in and translated into Russian.

Orgasmatron138: JayCab: 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.

So now we're going to ban Pumas? Thanks a bunch, dumbass.

But then PumaMan can't protect us with his sensible slacks!


Perhaps his injun friend will threw him out the window!

ThrobblefootSpectre: rev. dave: So are we going to bomb the hell out of Chechnya now?

Seeing as how Chechnya is a state of Russia (within  Russia's internal borders), that seems highly unlikely.  One of the few things that would make Moscow unhappier than Chechens bombing Moscow would be Americans bombing Chechnya.


Which is probably their motive: Chechen independence. Bomb a big U.S. event to put pressure on Russia's biggest frenemy to do something.

I passed out at 1am and...HOW THE FARK IS THIS GUY ON THE LOOSE?
 
2013-04-19 09:21:59 AM  
Woah, I recognize this kid.  I wrestled against him in high school.  He had this one move called the Chechnyan Pretzel.  Basically, he'd come storming out, grab you by the legs and arms and twist you into a farking pretzel.  He looks small but must have had some extra chromosomes are some shiat, because he could open canned goods with his farking teeth.  Anyway, nobody could even come close to beating the son of a biatch.  And I had to wrestle him in the first round of our State tourney!

When the whistle blew, I came charging out and he came charging out.  Just like lightning, he grabbed and twisted me around.  I was upside down and turned around before I knew what hit me.  Then I saw it - dangling out of a singlet, a pair of hairy testicles!  Cheating be damned, I craned my neck and sunk my teeth into the farkers.  I pinned him half a second later.

Coach asked me how I won and I told him about the ball bite.  He asked, "You bit his nuts?"  And I had to admit, "No, they were mine!"

ACunningPlan: 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?

He wanted to gain US citizenship by being selected for the US Olympic team: maybe that's why he bombed an international sporting event?  Radicalized Muslim is a theory, but let's face it - given his background, this bloke's political beef should be with Russia [not the US] - why not hit Russian targets [embassies, Russian emigres homes etc, etc.] within the US.

It was just a thought & perhaps not a smart one:)


Ahh, yeah...you've given it more thought than I have, to be honest. I still don't get the thinking though. I've only considered that it was a large public event and would in likelihood be reported on globally if their plan succeeded. His boxing, sporting background a coincidence.

Still confused as to why they never had some manifesto prepared. I thought some reddit nerd would have found a Youtube posting or something by now.
 
2013-04-19 09:22:06 AM  
I hope they catch that second ass wipe. Remember though that it only takes a few a-hioles with a screwed up brain to do crap like this. We...the normal...even those in countries we like to point the finger at,....most of us are normal people who just want to live happy, and let other do the same.

Good thing its Obama in office...if it were Bush we might be going to another full fledged war, spending 100s of billions on it etc.

I hope they knee cap this guy, shoot off his nuts...but keep him alive to see if anyone else is involved. Enough of this bull shiat,

Fissile: 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.

=================

Dear moran.  You lived there for two years?  Boy, I guess you know everything about Eastern Europe.   ...


Whereas you never lived there at all...  That's weaksauce, man.

dumbobruni: people don't buy guns from other states?


For that to be legal it must (long gun) go through an FFL and you must be legally permitted to own the firearm in your state of residence, or (handgun) it must be shipped to an FFL in your state of residence and you must still undergo the federal NICS background check complete with BATFE Form #4473 in both cases.

Person to person transfers cannot be made between individuals who reside in different states even if the buyer and seller are both legally able to possess firearms. It must be handled by an FFL.

FarkinNortherner: Unless they bought the guns in another state, in which case it's pretty straightforward (and not wholly irrational) to argue for Mass's standards to be applied nationwide.


Buying any gun in a state other than your state of residence still requires you to comply with all the laws of your state of residence.

thecpt: Yeah waaay too fast, but do you think that's a terrible idea? I mean, there are thousands of ways to make explosive devices in America so it's a stupid drop in a proverbial bucket but still. I forget if you side with background checks for firearms or not.


It's a horrible idea. All it will affect is the completely legal practice of loading your own ammunition at home for target shooting and hunting, and it'll have a horrible impact on those who load their own rounds for competition target shooting. Gun powder makes shiatty bombs, in all reality, which is why people who make bombs typically use actual explosives.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: they probably bought them online.


So then they did have them sent to an FFL, produced valid MA FID cards, filled out their 4473s and got entered into the bound book?

Cause those things are already required by law. It's not like you order it from GunBroker and a UPS box shows up at your house 2 days later with the gun in it.
