(SFGate)   So I bought the Tsarnaev brothers dinner after they blew up a marathon, deleted incriminating evidence from their computer, and lied to investigators. Is that a crime?   (sfgate.com) divider line 82

Buying someone dinner is a crime?
 
2014-06-04 04:39:35 PM  
No. Yes. Yes.

wildcardjack: Never volunter anything to investigators


Yep. I mean, really, he was trying to help - he recognized the photo of the bombers and contact the cops. But then, he got scared and so rather than saying "I had dinner with them on Monday night, not realizing then that they were the bombers," he said, "I haven't seen them recently and I'm not friends with them, but here's their phone numbers and addresses and where they might go, etc., etc."

It's like they say, snitches get stitches, either from the people you turn in, or the cops who are angry that you had the information before they did.

Was the statement "no I never traded on inside information"? Cause, that's kind of big one.

It was Olive Garden.


But did he bring them food from the Olive Garden to punish them for what they did?

Built a really big catapult.  Aim it at Kyrgyzstan.  Load this guy, and fire the catapult.

justanotherfarkinfarker: Wonder if he actually did anything. Sounds like he went right to the feds.


Probably not. It's like the kids who were the younger Tsarnaev's roommates at college who are in trouble for removing a backback from his dorm room. Most likely, it contained some illegal fireworks they bought in New Hampshire in preparation for July 4th, or something equivalent, and once they found out he was the bomber, they thought they had to get rid of it or they'd all be screwed. Is that illegal? Yeah. Does it really warrant 20 years in federal prison? Hell, no.

At a detention hearing Wednesday, Matanov waived his right to seek release on bail. His lawyer said Matanov, who came to the United States from Kyrgyzstan in 2010 ...

I heard what got deleted were hours and hours of brony porn.

Anayalator: Depends on what?


His knowledge and intent.  It's not a crime to destroy evidence of a crime.  It's a crime to knowingly destroy evidence of a crime with the intent to impede an investigation.

Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.  18 U.S. Code § 1519

All of this.

Also, they try to make the fact that he sent money to his family using a fake name as some kind of horrible president for him being a lier. I don't want people all up in my business and I can see him having a similar thought.
 
2014-06-04 05:12:52 PM  
I'm pretty sure the FBI could just ask the NSA what he deleted.
 
2014-06-04 05:15:43 PM  
So I bought the modmins dinner, deleted incriminating evidence from their computer, and then submitted this headline. Is that a repeat?

2014-06-04 05:27:24 PM  
It doesn't say what evidence was destroyed.  This appears to be a money laundering case.  When the pictures came out, he went to the police and gave them the address of the bombers.  I find it interesting he stayed in U.S. prior to indictment.
 
2014-06-04 05:28:19 PM  
did i fail to read the article, because i didn't read where he bought any  one dinner, deleted evidence, or lied to investigators involving anything relevant.

Yeah, subby's headline played a little fast and loose with what few facts were in the article to begin with...if just "deleting stuff" is a crime, we're gonna need some bigger prisons...

/a misleading headline on Fark?
