Dead Bombing Suspect Heavy Into Hip Hop | TMZ.com
Countdown to "HIP HOP TERRORISTS" news stories. Why can't the media accept that a sociopath is just a sociopath and nothing more? Why do we have to place the blame on anything other than the perpertrator themselves?
Airport is open. Just need to get there
@GREED stay where you are
Gonna leave it until 2pm and see what the score is then
Just arrested a 50-60? year old white male with a device in his jacket
"Handcuffed on ground has a device on him"
16.02 It looks like they have him surrounded. He's run over his brother in a police chase. He's angry about his brothers death. He's threatening to kill others because he's dead. He's in Watertown Massachusetts. They have called in for a Russian interpreter.
BBC Monitoring reports that a man named Anzor, who said he was Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's father, told Russia's Interfax news agency his children were framed.
"The special services framed my children because they are believing Muslims," he was quoted as saying. "Why did they kill Tamerlan? They should have taken him alive. The younger one is now on the run; he was studying in his second year at a medical institute in the US. We were expecting him home in the holidays. Now I don't know what will happen."
Let's be honest...He WOULD say that. Any parent would say that about their children, as I cannot believe anyone could see their child as a terrorist/monster/murderer etc.
Taxis are up and running again

I'm amazed the police radios aren't encrypted (assuming that's a regular scanner).
most of the online ones have been taken down
the TV news media have also been told to delay their reporting
Dzhokhar is still at large, but probably not in Watertown.
Alben says police are convinced that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has left the neighborhood of Watertown, Massachusetts.
"He abandoned a car that was used in the car chase," Alben said. But he did not flee in a vehicle.
"He did it on foot. He fled on foot. I don't know where he went specifically after that.
Also, it seems that some Americans are getting The Czech Republic confused with Chechnya. :(
The embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington, DC, has released a statement underscoring the fact that it is not Chechnya. The statement reads in part: "The Czech Republic is a Central European country; Chechnya is a part of the Russian Federation."
As many I was deeply shocked by the tragedy that occurred in Boston earlier this month. It was a stark reminder of the fact that any of us could be a victim of senseless violence anywhere at any moment.
As more information on the origin of the alleged perpetrators is coming to light, I am concerned to note in the social media a most unfortunate misunderstanding in this respect. The Czech Republic and Chechnya are two very different entities - the Czech Republic is a Central European country; Chechnya is a part of the Russian Federation.
As the President of the Czech Republic Miloš Zeman noted in his message to President Obama, the Czech Republic is an active and reliable partner of the United States in the fight against terrorism. We are determined to stand side by side with our allies in this respect, there is no doubt about that.

Caught him! alive as far as the news knows.
Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev of Cambridge was pulled from his hiding place in a boat parked behind a house on Franklin Street shortly before 8:45 p.m. in this community just outside Boston.
The dramatic finale came less than an hour after the news conference was over. A resident of Watertown came out of his house and noticed blood on his boat and that the tarp covering it was ripped. He lifted the tarp and saw a bloody form. He called police, who raced to the scene and exchanged gunfire with Tsarnaev, said Davis, the Boston commissioner.
Police surrounded the boat and there was a standoff for about an hour and a half. A State Police helicopter peeked at him from above, using a special infrared camera. Police deployed “flash bang” grenades to stun and distract him, Davis said. Police were cautious in their approach, concerned that Tsarnaev could be wearing a suicide bomb vest.
Dzohkhar Tsarnaev, who exchanged gunfire with police from the boat, was rushed to a local hospital, where he was in serious condition, Davis said.
Police had approached him cautiously, worried that he might be wearing a suicide bomb vest.
“We got him,” Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino tweeted immediately afterwards. He took to the police radio to thank officers personally, telling them, “Good job, guys!”
