Officials change story: Boston bombings suspect was unarmed

Tamerlan & Dzhokhar TsarnaevThe Tsarnaev brothers: Tamerlan (l) and Dzhokhar (r)

A week ago, on April 19, 2013, at the end of a harrowing day of a city-wide lockdown and door-to-door searches by armed SWAT teams who ordered residents out at gunpoint, with their hands clasped behind their heads, the 32,000 citizens of Watertown, MA, were told that police had finally captured the remaining Boston bombings suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davies described a firefight between Tsarnaev and police officers which lasted for more than an hour, before the terror suspect was captured.

The New York Times also reported an M4 carbine rifle had been found in the boat in a house’s backyard where Tsarnaev was hiding, and that officials recovered two handguns and a bb gun used by Dzhokhar and his older brother Tamerlan killed earlier that day.

Hidden: Authorities located bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev using infrared light, which lit up his body hiding under a tarp

Hideout: Dzhokhar was found hiding in this boat in Watertown on Friday following a massive manhunt

Apprehended: Dzhokhar is searched and given medical attention after he is found hiding on Friday eveningPolice search Dzhokhar after they captured him after a supposed hour-long firefight

But the Associated Press and Daily Mail report that those accounts are contradicted by two unnamed U.S. officials who, on April 24, 2013, told the AP that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was unarmed when police captured him and no gun was found in the boat.
Dozens of bullet holes were seen on the exterior of the boat in photos taken shortly after the final standoff in the Watertown backyard.
Now that we’ve been told that one suspect (Tamerlan) is dead and the other (Dzhokhar) captured, all of America heaves a sigh of relief as we return to watching American Idol and NFL games. Does anyone even care about the truth of what actually happened or didn’t happen?

  2. FOTM cares.
    The heavily redacted nature of the story is the most troubling indicator of an unseen government hand.

     
  3. This Boston Police Chief Commissioner is as believable as the Sandy Hook Medical examiner:

    • Hi Nathan,
      I checked out your article, and see the reasoning your sources used in suggesting you walk back your statements. It was my first thought, too.
      But immediately on the heels of that, I realized we may have observed the Commissioner in a text-book Freudian Slip! On that basis, I would agree that your contention should remain visible.

       
      • Trail –
        I don’t believe it was a “Friedian slip.” He said it because he knows of all the crisis actors involved. Therefore, it “slipped out;” else why would he attempt to recover from it by then saying, “these individuals?”
        We must hold these people to the highest standards. After all, they are supposed to be law enforcement that supposedly subject themselves to the laws of the land.
        One more thing. How can we believe these people when their story changes – especially about the apprehension of the 19 year old alleged bomber?

         
        • Agreed Nathaniel,
          I had to drive my wife home from Boston that day, and in the course of driving to and from the city, the story changed like kaleidoscope right before my eyes.
          Shame on the people who are blocking the true story, whatever it turns out to be.

  4. I wonder why they fired all those bullets into the boat, when the suspect was just lying there wounded.

     
    • Well duh??? he could have been wired as a IED!… would you rather our good public safety officials fall dead or severely wounded, or see the capture of scumbags like these who hate America… and who really… should go home, if they hate America so much!

       
  5. the govt found out what they needed to know and that is americans cheered cops for shoving an m4 carbine in their faces while saying the sky is falling

     
  6. How does it feel to be treated like the US government treats everybody else in the world? I guess you’d say it’s our turn, they already have the police state in order, now we will be able to feel the wrath of this Socialist government! Now you know why they want our guns!! Semper Fi.

     
  7. Isn’t it time to find out exactly who the nominal president is? The FBI are not sure about the identity of the terrorists they have been surveilling to several years now, but the mother, the auntie and whoever else in the family of the two suspects have been talking to the FBI it appears and at least the records of these boys is fairly transparent, except for the story about the older of the two travelling to Dagestan which hasn’t really been proven.
    Three people have died and over one hundred wounded, and the younger of the suspects is now in prison. How many people have died under equally violent circumstances since Barack Obama took office? How many wounded? It is well known that there is a who to kill next meeting held in the WH every week, and the law of the land and the US Constitution are flouted so often that there is a clear case for this administration to be shut down so that the citizens of the US can get this sovreign republic of our back to being what the Founding Fathers envisioned. The press going on and on about the use of sarin in Syria and now John McCain clamoring for us to go to war again is yet another instance when more people will be blown up and many others wounded and yet the treatment of the politicians who order and pay for these killings and injuring of others is just to figure out a way that they can wriggle out of Obamacare, meanwhile a nineteen year old boy is put in prison after a gun fight that didn’t happen when his throat was conveniently hurt so badly that now he cannot talk. So many people are tuning into inforwars and prison planet now that MSNBC and other supposedly liberal blogs are now saying that Alex Jones was responsible for the radicalization of the two suspects. In the Old Testament sometimes the enemy of the Children of Israel was said to have turned upon themselves and in the morning they were all dead in their tents. We shall see what we shall see.

     
  8. I’d love to hear the truth. I’m still waiting for the truth on Benghazi.

     
  9. I wish we could find the truth about who is responsible for the bombing in Boston, if there was a mastermind other than the older Tsarnaev brother. I wish the suspects had been aprehended alive without the excitement and incredible outpouring of vengeance in the rain of bullets to the extent that, the Beth Israel Deaconness medical staff said that there were so many bullets in Tamerlan’s body, they could not be counted.
    I wish the younger Dzhokhar, had been aprehended without the one hour police shootout. The police had helicopters with the technology to let them see the suspect, and the suspect was injured an unarmed. What kind of men shoot an unarmed man?
    There are so many contradictions in the stories published about this topic, and there is so much sensationalism that it seems to me, the press and perhaps even many of the authorities fail to realize what a horrible tragedy the Boston Marathon Bombing was. It was a fatal and horrendous death for the victims and for the older Tsarnaev brother. It is a horrendous, and continuing tragedy for all other victims and the younger Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. His life is pretty much over. His oportunities are gone.
    Finally, and most of all, I wish we were intelligent enough, brave enough to demand the truth, loving enought to forgive, and courageous enough to truly engage in bridge-building with other cultures and other isms so a tragedy like this will never happen again.

     
    • Hi Consuelo,
      Thank you for expressing your thoughts. I’m reminded of a pope who expressed mercy to the man who attempted to assassinate him. Such a move requires the heart of God, and is truly wonderful.
      I would caution you to avoid the trap of building bridges to an ideology that is irreconcilable with other beliefs. Islam doesn’t play well with the other kids in the sand box. It has a 1400 year track record of murder and genocide.
