Second bomb suspect captured alive

Boston police: 'Suspect in custody'
Associated Press
Apr 19, 2013

A 19-year-old college student wanted in the Boston Marathon bombings was taken into custody Friday evening after a manhunt that left the city virtually paralyzed and his older brother and accomplice dead.

Police announced via Twitter that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was in custody. They later wrote, "CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody."

Tsarnaev's brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan, was killed Friday in a furious attempt to escape police.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had been holed up in a boat in a Watertown neighborhood. The crowd gathered near the scene let out a cheer when spectators saw officers clapping.

"Everyone wants him alive," said Kathleen Paolillo, a 27-year-old teacher who lives in Watertown.

Boston Mayor Tom Menino tweeted "We got him," along with a photo of the police commissioner speaking to him.

During a long night of violence Thursday into Friday, the brothers killed an MIT police officer, severely wounded another lawman and hurled explosives at police in a car chase and gun battle, authorities said.

The suspects were identified by law enforcement officials and family members as Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, ethnic Chechen brothers who had lived in Dagestan, which neighbors Chechnya in southern Russia. They had been in the U.S. for about a decade, an uncle said, and were believed to be living in Cambridge, Mass.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a 26-year-old who had been known to the FBI as Suspect No. 1 and was seen in surveillance footage of the marathon in a black baseball cap, was killed overnight, officials said. His younger brother, who had been dubbed Suspect No. 2 and was seen wearing a white, backward baseball cap in the images from Monday's deadly bombing — escaped and was on the run.

Their uncle in Maryland, Ruslan Tsarni, pleaded on live television: "Dzhokhar, if you are alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness."

Authorities in Boston suspended all mass transit and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay indoors as the hunt for Suspect No. 2 went on. Businesses were asked not to open. People waiting at bus and subway stops were told to go home. The Red Sox and Bruins postponed their games.

From Watertown to Cambridge, police SWAT teams, sharpshooters and FBI agents surrounded various buildings as police helicopters buzzed overhead and armored vehicles rumbled through the streets. Authorities also searched trains.

"We believe this man to be a terrorist," said Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis. "We believe this to be a man who's come here to kill people."

The bombings on Monday killed three people and wounded more than 180 others, tearing off limbs in a spray of shrapnel and instantly raising the specter of another terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

Chechnya was the scene of two wars between Russian forces and separatists since 1994, in which tens of thousands were killed in heavy Russian bombing. That spawned an Islamic insurgency that has carried out deadly bombings in Russia and the region, although not in the West.

Investigators in the Boston case have shed no light on the motive for the bombing and have said it is unclear whether it was the work of domestic or international terrorists or someone else entirely with an unknown agenda.

The endgame — at least for Suspect No. 1 — came just hours after the FBI released photos and video of the two young men at the marathon's finish line and appealed to the public for help in identifying and capturing them.

State Police spokesman Dave Procopio said police realized they were dealing with the bombing suspects based on what the two men told a carjacking victim during their getaway attempt overnight.

No president ever does it all and never will. He's done some significant things but it's shallow to pull on this scenario and say that he didn't respond correctly. Be an American don't complain so much. You sound like the bombers. LoL!

goofus

Holy cow!!! A bombing a federal crime done by Jihadists will bring out every federal agency whether Obozo says so or not. Phew what a mental midget

KnuckleDragger

Don't get concern yourself with the likes of OH-IO, Big Dog, 4shitzle, and deerturd. These are all guys suffering from white guilt. They will never be able to criticize the President because they're scared to death of being called racists.

shucks

KnuckleHead,
White guilt?
Scared to death of being called racists?
You're cracked.

S w Rand 2016

How does having complaints against the President equate to "sounding like the bombers?"
What the hell is wrong with you, man?

OH-IO

No what the hell is wrong with you! This is the same mentality that the bombers had! They hate America they hate the president! If you're a true American You vote and your respectable and you vote again in four years. I havent always agree with the president in office but I never disrespected it like some of you are! Face it you're not an unconditional American. Only when everything goes your way like a kid.

S w Rand 2016

Nonsense. His Twitter account shows he supported Obama in the 2012 elections.

Your warped definition of "disrespect" is what intellectuals would call "critical thinking skills."
Also, you are an outright liar. You just "disrespected" Bush, did you not? So, you don't always "vote and be satisfied," do you?
Tell us. Do the members of the Congress and Senate "sound like the bombers" because they raise objections to the President's actions and policies?

If anyone is anti-American here, it would be you. You seem to be against the 1st amendment. Also, you want people to only speak nicely of a President who seems to have issues with the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th amendments as well.
Aside from the fact that you seem to be overzealously critical of people who do not "hail" the President (something that only a dictatorial government would require), you are ranting and inciting hatred against your fellow Americans. How, exactly, are you an "unconditional American?"

looking around

Extreme right wing nut's are false flag waivers.

The Big Dog's back

That they are.

Darwin's choice

and you're not? Hahahahaha!!!!!

S w Rand 2016

Wavers, not waivers. They are two very different things.

Why are you replying to my comment, tho? What does that have anything to do with what I said?
Random troll is random?

asweetnessabove

Maybe it got mixed up... Kind of like OH-IO, <<>>

I know this may be off topic.... What exactly does S w stand for? I understand the rest. Just curious.

S w Rand 2016

Stand With Rand 2016. I had a feeling if I didn't spell it out, people on the SR comment boards may not have known.

Senator Rand Paul grabbed the attention of much of the world with his marathon 13-hour talk-until-you-drop filibuster where, among other things, he spoke about our right to trial by jury and the unconstitutionality of NDAA. The hashtag #StandWithRand had almost as many tweets as the President's State of the Union Address.
Hour One of the Senate footage can be seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=... and the other 12 hours should be in the sidebar.
The Sandusky Register has been deafeningly silent on the issue, unless they had something in the paper edition that I am unaware of.
Even Left wing mainstream national media covered it and gave him tons of praise for it in most cases. Yet, somehow, the SR seems oblivious.

S w Rand 2016

I am starting to wonder if someone at the top issued a "gag order." When even Tom Jackson did not do a piece on it, I wondered if maybe someone did not want locals to know that we may finally have a true populist (on both fiscal and social issues) candidate in 2016.
I dunno why anyone would be concerned, tho. There are plenty of sites out there who are already working on a smear campaign against him.

The Big Dog's back

No one cares about rand paul.

S w Rand 2016

You don't? I figured someone who is such a fan of Bill Clinton would be very interested in electing a President who truly would be what Clinton masqueraded himself to appear as.
I mean, c'mon. Senator Rand Paul even sent a budget proposal which balances the budget in 5 years without touching Social Security or Medicare, merely to prove that it could be done. Obama, on the other hand, is offering up cuts to those programs!
Less opinion blogs, more Senate footage, pls.

Disrespect:
lack of respect, esteem or courteous regard
Contempt; rudeness
To regard or treat with contempt or rudeness; insult

You have disrespected a former president. And can you SERIOUSLY state that you have never shown "disrespect" for the current clown... Oops I mean president? I doubt it. Everyone everywhere has shown some type of disrespect for him. Whether it be by his actions in situations or his proposing on bills. No one is perfect, you are no exception.

S w Rand 2016

deleted, grr

KnuckleDragger

So how many years did you spend in the military serving your country? Like Big mouth dog, deercrapper, and 4dumba$$, I bet not a single day. Bunch of wussys sitting in mamas basement telling everyone else they are not a true American.

shucks

You weren't in the service.
You've never been in college.
Working on a Masters... bullspit.
You're too dumb.

OH-IO

No sir! There were federal troops that he said to assist. There were federal agencies that he sent it to assist. The president doesn't send these resources to every particular situation in the United States. He chose to send the men on this one and it was the right call. You might not like everything about it but if you were American you appreciate it. American I am and I'm not a complainer.

goofus

Don't you mean how Obozo hampered the FBI in it's interrogation of muslim terrorists 2 years ago

OH-IO

No I don't mean that you mean that in your anti-American rhetoric.

S w Rand 2016

You don't mean that he means that? Where does he ever say you meant that he meant that?
You seem to have this habit of claiming that people are saying (or meaning) things that they are not, in fact, saying (or meaning).

KnuckleDragger

You are arguing with someone that has the mental capacity of a worm. Keep going though, you are proving how ignorant liberals really are. In fact, they are only as smart as Obama tells them to be.

S w Rand 2016

Yah. Heh. It was a choice between correcting his punctuation, so that it would properly represent what he meant to say, or giving him a taste of his own medicine (pretending that people are saying something which they are not actually saying). I chose the latter this time : P

shucks

Huron_1969
Only an imbecile would think that Bush wrote his own speeches.
Hell, he should have had somebody read them for him.

Also OH-IO Oblunder can't take credit for this.
I listened to this all day on a live feed. Guess what Oblunders boys (FBI,ATF,US Marshals) bailed out and then came back AFTER he was in custody. I heard the actual order to withdraw and let the locals handle it.
(Not exactly what I would call supporting them)

The State Police, Boston PD, and Watertown PD handled the problem. Well done by the way guys.

OH-IO

Love my President! Great day to be an American!

OH-IO

You can't communicate with somebody who doesn't have the facts straight. It seems that you're just saying what you wish it was. Oh well I'll just enjoy the great days of this for you turn that I have been enjoying.
