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.

My hat is off to all the law enforcement for taking him alive.

Now we can torture him and find out all about his gang.

ladydye_5

Our awesome commander in chief banned torture. Never mind the fact he is a muslim (which our chief seems to sympathize with). There will be NO torture, nothing will be done. Hopefully he will find himself in general population and nature will take its course. (many "hard core" criminals do not take kindly to killing women and children)

Are you kidding me? If you so much as cut his fingernails, the ACLU will be all over it. You won't be getting any info out of him. The good ole USA have given him everything in life and he has chosen to throw it back in our face.

Thank you President Obama for your selfless leadership and courage during this trying time. You didn't let America down like that coward before you.

Obama did exactly what any President should under these circumstances, he offered sympathy for those attacked, he let it be known that America will seek out who did this and have justice. He authorized any and all federal and military aid in abducting the perpetrators hopefully capture alive to determine if more are involved and if other attacks are planned. Finding out as much as possible from the one remaining fugitive is the only way to find absolute closure. Be certain this person and possibly others will pay dearly for their crimes as did Bin Laden! Justice will be served. No other President could have done anything better or would have done anything differently. What did the nay sayers here do besides sit on their duffs in front of the TV and eat popcorn? Congratulations to all that were party to this manhunt....job well done!

bondgirlM

Why doesn't your illustrious leader spend as much effort in regards to Benghazi. This was actually the 3rd terrorist attack on American's since Obama became president. Bush was president for a mere 8 months when attacked by terrorists and he didn't let them get away with it. Obama just looks the other way.

looking around

As I remember it was Bush who saw to it Bin Ladens family was flown out of the country to safe haven when all other aircraft were grounded after 9/11

S w Rand 2016

We have reports that Obama is sending a Saudi national home as well, don't we?

A senior law enforcement official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told TheBlaze Thursday that reports claiming the department was deporting Alharbi under section 212 3B (“security and related grounds”) and had opened an “event” (or file) on the Saudi Arabian national following the Boston attacks is “categorically false.”
Documents presented to Congress, however, were subsequently reported by TheBlaze to have confirmed that plans were made to revoke the visa of Alharbi.
The congressional source told TheBlaze it was unclear as to why representatives from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would be unaware of the plans for visa revocation.
The Saudi news report is plausible given that the first lady along with President Obama visited victims of the Boston bombings at several different area hospitals Thursday afternoon.
The visits were closed to the media and scheduled with little advance notice due to security reasons.

Visa revocation, in this case, is code for "letting them out of the country."

Even if this report were inaccurate, there is still precious little to distinguish between Bush and Obama in regards to Foreign Policy and related matters. They both spend big on wars and they both sign away our rights in the interest of fighting the War on Terror. We knew all of this back in 2011, tho. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/2...

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev voted for Obama after he was naturalized on Sept. 11th, 2012.

Glad he's been captured alive so we can learn about his connections. Hope he has a speedy trial and a speedier execution.

The Big Dog's back

How do you know he voted for Obama? Are you friends with him? Something you're not telling us?

It's been all over the news that he campaigned for him

S w Rand 2016

@4shizzle
Actually, it's his own Twitter account that was tweeting support for Obama during the 2012 election season.
https://twitter.com/J_tsar

More research, less assumptions, pls.

shucks

I went to your link--- so what do you want me to look at?
If he did support Obama, it is totally irrevelant.

You probably supported Bush and he killed and maimed thousands of of people, including Americans, because of his lies.

More research, less assumptions.

S w Rand 2016

Spare us the rhetoric. You are merely trying to dance around the fact that you got caught making inaccurate assumptions. Your assumption being that, if it wasn't favorable to you, it must've come from a Right wing news outlet and it had to be a lie.

No. I thought Bush was the Antichrist, actually. This was back when I believed the mainstream Christian interpretations of the Bible (their interpretation of Revelations, to be more specific).

shucks

"Spare us the rhetoric. You are merely trying to dance around the fact that you got caught making inaccurate assumptions. Your assumption being that, if it wasn't favorable to you, it must've come from a Right wing news outlet and it had to be a lie."

How'd you assume all that crap?
Who do you think you are?
An investigative journalist , Bill O'reilly?

shucks

I heard it came from Rush.
Right wing news outlets are nuts.

This isn't Twitter.

.............You have to type something in, tho. It doesn't give you the option to remove your own comment, for some reason. You can only edit it. I figured, if I have to leave something in the text field, I might as well clarify.
By the way, I don't even use Twitter and yet I had no trouble figuring out how to scroll down on the suspect's feed so that it loads the earlier comments around the 2012 election season.

shucks

Whatever- Nobody cares about your frustrations with this site.

KnuckleDragger

Wrong! I heard it on CNN this morning, and it is in print on CBS website. I couldn't find it at all on Fox.

I saw on the web. It said Rush started it. Don't care, it's irrevelant.

You're right...just as most of your comments.

And yours.

dont give obama credit for what these police officers have done!

I don't see where Obama is trying to take any credit? He has congratulated all involved in the manhunt..job well done! You folks should give it up, you can't discredit the President for anything here.

So, you are all for water boarding a United States citizen?

Darwin's choice

You bet ! You're first......

OH-IO

Obama does get credit! When a president doesn't use the resources and waits or thinks it's not important enough then their not handling the situation correctly. . The American people want a president that responses. He did that by using federal resources to take action and assisting the local authorities and state authorities with anything they needed . That's not always a given by a President. President Bush didn't move quick enough during Hurricane Katrina. A president can mess it up! It was an overall effort!

arnmcrmn

Because Obie moved so quick with Hurricane Sandy.....lol. Its still a mess over there, people are still without power and without homes and money.

OH-IO

No president very 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!

arnmcrmn

so now you are saying Obie didn't do so well? Complaining? Isnt that what you did just above about Bush? Come on weak sauce, you gotta give us something straight and real. Not this fence jumping.

S w Rand 2016

So, you call Bush out on Hurricane Katrina and complain. Wait, doesn't that make you "sound like the bombers" now? Complaining and disrespecting the President?
Then, someone points out that Obama did poorly with the other Hurricane (Sandy) and you can't seem to handle the apples-to-apples comparison. So, you dance around it.

The bombers supported Obama, actually. And he is just doing so great that they couldn't possibly be complaining, right?

The Big Dog's back

Give a reliable news source for the bombers campaigning for Obama rand.

S w Rand 2016

Let's be honest. If I had a news source, I'm sure a Left wing site wouldn't have reported it so you wouldn't have accepted it anyway : P

S w Rand 2016

However, his Twitter account https://twitter.com/J_tsar shows that he did campaign for him in a minor way. He tweeted in support of him during the 2012 election season.

Remember, tho. I'm one of those who are still unsure that he did it, until I see some hard evidence with a trial by jury.
I am just responding, in kind, to OH-IO's antics throughout this article. I would much rather have both parties to this debate refrain from using it to demonize one another.

shucks

arnmcrmn-
The Republicans fought against giving aid to the Hurricane Sandy victims .

arnmcrmn

Really....you mean the Republicans fought hard to make sure the disaster money being handed out wasn't going to pet projects that had nothing to do with the Sandy? Well pardon me and the republicans for wanting our government to spend the money correctly and not just hand it out and not know where it was going....like liberals do.

If you don't believe it, just read the link below. http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Ar...
Been a long time now and many of the people haven't seen a dime. Great job Obie.

shucks

Gov.Chris Christie was angry at his fellow Republicans and he is a Republican .
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/poli...

S w Rand 2016

That was a PR stunt. It was also back when he thought he had a chance at a 2016 election bid, way back before http://reason.com/archives/2013/... (the last 4 paragraphs particularly, although the entire article adds further context).

Edit: By the way, your article link has nothing to do with Christie being angry with Republicans.

shucks

Oh please

Erie County Resident

@ OH-IO yep Oblunder jumped right on this with a fuff speech.

He also jumped right on that Bengazi thing also didn't he.

Oh wait, NO he never has done anything but try and cover it up, and it has been how many MONTHS now??? Yep he jumps right on a problem there.

I know it's coming so get busy with the blame Bush game. 2nd term for your master and still won't take any responsibility for our current mess that IS getting worse.

OH-IO

No president very 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!

i keep hearing you say he has done some significant things...can you please list them for us?....not sure i can think of anything. sorry.

OH-IO

This site is full of people who are disrespectful to the president is disrespectful to the United States of America. This Boston bomber mentality is in Sandusky!

The Big Dog's back

Yes it is.

Darwin's choice

Respect is earned, big dog, not given. It's not handed out like Nobel Peace prizes.....!!!!!

shucks

No, respect is given then lost.

S w Rand 2016

First off, define disrespect. Telling the truth is not disrespect.
Where do you people even come from? The people who founded this country would be utterly ashamed of you. You are like some star-struck kid when it comes to politicians. How will you ever be able to think critically if you view critical thinking as disrespectful?
The President is no more special than any other speech-making community organizer who moonlights as a lawyer. Anyone with that job history could be the President, apparently.

And the kicker in all of this is that most of our complaints center around the fact that he has continued most of Bush's policies and, in some cases, made them worse.
By your logic, we can't complain against Bush, either. If we do, we "sound like the bombers." You're a bad joke.

OH-IO

You got a dictionary. You define it. Who gave you the barking orders tell somebody what to do.

S w Rand 2016

I can't tell if you are trolling or serious (with that response).

KnuckleDragger

My God you are killing me with your inability to use proper spelling and grammar rules. Another ignorant lib trying pretend they are intelligent.

KnuckleDragger

This is the subgroup of Obama voters that I was talking about in a previous post. They are so afraid of being thought of as a racist, that they are unable to criticize this President. It all has to do with white guilt. I'm doing my Master's thesis on this right now. You would be shocked at what I have uncovered so far. I plan on posting it in it's entirety when it's completed.

KnuckleDragger

Actually, some skepticism of government is considered health. The founding fathers stating repeatedly that we should be very skeptical of the government. It is you lap licking liberals that are disrespectful.

bondgirlM

Ask the victims of Hurricane Sandy if Obama has moved quickly enough. HMMMMM

OH-IO

Definitely wasn't any slower than Hurricane Katrina and Bush!! Hahahaha!

goofus

Slower than the response of the ninth ward when they knew in advance of the hurricane and school bus Naggin left the buses that could have been used in evacuation just sit and get flooded

goofus

School bus Naggin was the democratic mayor of New Orleans that had the national guard rescue his cash stash at his house in the freezer

shucks

The Republicans fought against giving aid to the Hurricane Sandy victims .

S w Rand 2016

Really? They said Hurricane Sandy victims should get no kind of aid, whatsoever? They did not offer their own proposal on how to go about giving aid?
I would like to see a link to proof. Otherwise, your comment should merely say "The Republicans fought against the Democrats' method of giving aid to Hurricane Sandy victims."

shucks

It was on tv for everyone to see.
Where were you?

OH-IO

That's not always a given by a President. President Bush didn't move quick enough during Hurricane Katrina. A president can mess it up! It was an overall effort! It took 4 months to get The London bombers. This took 4 days! LOL!

Huron_1969

The only resource Obama used was the speeches that were written for him. Watching him address the nation was very disappointing. The guy is a great orator when he wants to be, but he sure didn't show us his "A" game this week.

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.
https://twitter.com/J_tsar

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Senator Rand Paul, actually. He's not just great for Republicans, tho. He is good for everyone. A true populist candidate.

Only an ill-informed person would think that the Republicans will not have something awesome to offer in 2016. I think you must barely ever (or never) watch C-Span2 (Senate footage).

shucks

We will see, self assured smug one, what will happen in 2016 ( if the Republican Party still exists).

KnuckleDragger

We sure will. The inside scoop is that the Dems are gonna run babbling Joe Biden. That should be a real riot. I got the popcorn ready for 2016 because if anything, Joe's antics are entertaining.

shucks

I'll be ready with popcorn also to watch the clowns of the Republican party.

S w Rand 2016

re: 4shizzle said: "...if the Republican Party still exists"

That is my very point. We (who watch the Senate footage from C-Span2 and some on C-Span3, or dig up previous footage from the online archives) are watching the beginning stages of an "out with the old, in with the new" GOP.
This is being led by Senator Rand Paul with more "new generation" Republican Senators behind him. It is very inspiring to see.

shucks

bullydogs1971

i watched most of this coverage and all i seen was photos of Obama with his leg on his knee in an easy chair and give a speech....even listened to the live scanner towards the end.... Obama did nothing...it was the police and agencies doing the work and making the decisions...not once did i ever hear "so what does the president want us to do?" Obama was just following it like the rest of us.....waiting for his speech that was written by one of his writers.
BTW i am still trying to think of one thing this president has done....all i come up with is NDAA, GUN GRAB, CONTINUES TORTURE, STILL AT WAR, DRONE STRIKES, MORE BANK BAIL OUTS, FAILED HEALTHCARE BILL(THIS THING IS SAD), RECEIVED A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE(NOT SURE WHAT FOR?), added 6 trillion to the debt and rising, increased welfare payment by 32%, unemployment still through the roof....hopefully he will raise the minimum wage though...that would be a plus. Dont start on bush either....him and his daddy should be hung for all their crimes against humanity.

Not to mention a speech that was probably written the day it all happened.

Yeah, I don't think I can add anything positive or note worthy to that list. You did pretty well and summarized it all up.

This was local law enforcement at its best. Don't give credit where its not due...aka Obama. All he did was talk, like usual.

Why do you keep re-posting this? You sound very emotionally upset.
Are you one of those people who buy into the conspiracy theory about Obama declaring Martial Law and assuming dictatorial powers? It seems like you do and you are just flippin' out about it, man.
Oh, I get it. There was a soft form of Martial Law declared in Boston and now you are sniveling and groveling at the feet of the President, aren't you? He is not even going to see your comments, man.
I shouldn't laugh, but I can't seem to help it. I will feel sorry for you after I am done laughing, tho. It's just my nature, I guess.
I will come up with a comment, shortly, to dispel your fears and restore your intellectual strength : P

Re: "How do you know he voted for Obama?"

If it's on a Wingnut website it has to be true.

They are still on social media with the 2007 "He wants to change the National Anthem" bullspit........

I think for some people it makes no difference whether President Obama did this or that............they never will give the President Obama credit for anything...they just don't or ever will like him. Probably has nothing to do with race for most its just he is not a Republican and that makes all the difference.

Honestly I can relate to their feeling etc. Not for the fact of Obama for I voted for him both times but for 8 years I never ever listed to a speech, etc given by George W Bush. When ever he came on the news I would turn off the TV and wait a a few minutes and turn it back on. Even when 911 happen I could not stomach any words from GWB. To this day I can not stand him. I felt then and still today he is an idiot and probably the dumbest presidents we have ever had in our history. I actually applauded the day he left office. Bottom line could not stand him !!! So I can relate to those who have their differences with Obama. But fact is he is the president till noon on January 20, 2017.

shucks

These anti-Obama critics think that Bush did a great job as president-- they are dumber than rocks.

hey now, i think Bush is quite possibly the dumbest people to ever show up on my tv screen, and that's even counting the cast of jersey shore... obama on the other hand isn't really in idiot, because let's face it, the guy really has done nothing outlandishly stupid like tripping over age old axioms or routinely answer the pone upside down, but obama has really been an ineffectual leader... dude promised us change after bush's reign, and really things stay the same... a downward slide... this whole gun debate ad recent press coverage is just his way of trying to leave a mark as president. there's bigger more important problems he could be trying to tackle, or atleast be laying down the frame work for the next guy, but instead, he's pissing and moaning about the 11th place killer in the united states as of 2010... which means there are literally 10 other things he should be worrying about before he hits gun control, and that's not even paying any credence to our current economical struggles or the possible outbreak or war... so really... there's dozens of larger issues he could be facing... but he's not. like i've said before, bush was bad, but at least he gave us a laugh. obama is bad, but in a more serious manner, so i hope the next guy can actually accomplish anything worth while in their time in office.
