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.

You must still be in pain from Romney losing the election.

Oh, I dunno. He was at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2013, tho.

A surgeon had spoken and, very politely, stood a few feet from Obama and roasted his entire Presidency and almost his entire point of view regarding America. I have to say it was far more significant than Colbert's roast of Bush Jr. a few years back. I say that because this man was genuinely trying to offer guidance rather than doing a stand-up comedy act.
Obama seemed very displeased for almost the entire speech. I think he was wondering how many people in the room were wishing this surgeon would've been the first Black President of America.

OH-IO

I think he was thinking how many people that call themselves Americans like you wouldn't appreciate it.

S w Rand 2016

Wouldn't appreciate what?
Did you even listen to the speech?

bullydogs1971

ultimately it was a citizen that found him....

What is Erie R talking about? Talk about phony, frothing outrage about a non-existent issue. Even Romney is on record yesterday saying that Obama responded correctly and eloquently. This situation isn't about Obama - he simply made a speech yesterday denouncing the attack - the same as any president would have done, and exactly what we Americans would expect our President to do.

Wonder if Mr. Obama will make a speech including his "thoughts and prayers" regarding last night's Chicago casualties?

Or won't that help improve his political ideologically driven agenda and smug know-it-all narcissistic image?

Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country. Obviously running your mouth isn't one of them.

S w Rand 2016

Your hypocrisy is astounding.
I take it you haven't yet read my reply to you at http://www.sanduskyregister.com/...
...Talk about someone running their mouth to the detriment of their own country...

Should the link stop working if and when the comment gets pushed to another page, it is my most recent reply to OH-IO which begins with "OH-IO, I am really trying not to sink to.."

OH-IO

Too late you've already sunk to the bottom of Lake Erie. Your comments are laced with Ricin for the American government. I haven't heard you say one positive thing. That's not saying a lot being that were in the best country in the World.

S w Rand 2016

I think you meant to say "and that IS saying alot."

Again, if anyone is anti-American, it is you. You are doing nothing but attempting to cause (and intensify) infighting among your fellow citizens. I am trying to convince you to stop. You don't find that to be positive?

I am, overall, very positive. I am convinced the old guard politicians will throw in the towel and Senator Rand Paul will be nominated and elected in 2016 and that he will bring the country together with realistic and forward-looking centrist proposals.
Even when replying to you, I am civil at the very least. I'm sure a number of people would agree that I am being a little too courteous toward you, at this point.

Contango- you are a person who should be ignored.

Two thumbs up!

re: the Big Dog's back said: "What happened with the outrage over killing an American citizen, terrorist, abroad? Now the right wants to water board an American citizen."

Senator Rand Paul is the lead figure who is standing up against these things.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=... See?
The Senators on the Right who are calling to apply the Law of War are McCain and Graham. Not Senator Paul. They are the same Senators who insulted Rand Paul for his 13-hour talk-until-you-drop filibuster where he spoke, among other things, about our right to trial by jury and the unconstitutionality of NDAA. The full 13 hours of footage can be found on the Senator's channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

You should really stop commenting on politics if you only read biased opinion blogs or listen to talking points based on soundbytes. Both houses of Congress are aired Live 24 hours a day on C-Span (House of Representatives) and C-Span2 (Senate). You can look for archived footage that you did not catch on TV at http://www.c-spanvideo.org/congr...

OH-IO

Sir this all Rand Paul stuff needs to stop. It further cements that you are a sore loser. If you want him on the ballot next election for the president of United States then go work for him. Get off this blog talking about Ru Paul and all your philosophies because it's just philosophies. Just think about it nothing you say will happen unless you put your presidential candidate in office. Good luck and good riddance.
