    I went home for lunch today and was watching ABC, and they replayed the interview around 1:40. I absolutely agree with him. If people don't like the way we "do things" here, whether they are born here or not, they are free to leave. Otherwise, shut up and deal, and don't cause trouble for innocent people, like these bombings.

    The Globe is reporting that @J_tsar appears to genuinely be the twitter handle of Dzhokhar. He did post on the 15th.

    Of course, I cannot personally confirm that this page is not a hoax. I am relying on the Globe.

    Yeah, I saw that. The photo of the guy dead was not sad, it was graphic. I really wonder how he got the giant gash in his side. The photo of the little boy enjoying the race is extremly sad to look at.

    I read in this thread, but have not seen confirmation, that

    Spoiler

    Under spoiler tags for those who'd rather skip.

    ETA: Several news sources have just confirmed that this is in fact the case.

    Yes, the photo was incredibly sad.
    The doctor who treated Tsarnaev stated in an interview outside the hospital that he had 'blast' injuries plus he had been run over. So that may explain the injuries. That was many hours ago, shown when it was still dark in Boston. (Breakfast time here)

    If the twitter account J_tsar really is this guy- he is a complete sociopath (of course, I think I had already decided on that). His comments the day of the bombing are sickening. He even commented on a picture of one of the woman who died to say the story attached to it was fake (which it was, but still!)

    Can the FBI/CIA obtain a warrant to be allowed to see his private message, or the locked accounts he has public replies to? I would assume they can and twitter has to hand that over, right?

    Yes, they can subpoena this information and force the internet companies to provide it, if the company cannot or will not hand the info over willingly. In addition, they will take the suspect's computer (and those of people he may have corresponded with - they have already taken his sister's computer) and go through it in great detail.

    Flight in has been delayed, but we live close enough that I'll just wait to get the call that he's arrived. I've seen numerous road blocks over the past few years at the entrance to the airport. They do them periodically and it's typically random car checks. My guess, based on traffic reports, is that they are checking all cars. Honestly, it makes me feel better FWIW.

    Good news, it appears that taxi service is resuming, so that may be a better option for him to get home.

    I think this is the photo? http://now.msn.com/martin-richard-ap...okhar-tsarnaev
    Martin's younger sister, Jane, could be the one wearing the green jacket.

    Taxi service is operating in the city, yes. I don't know how busy they might end up being when your friend arrives, as they are the only public transit in operation, and people did go to work before they were told not to. (ETA: they are saying taxi service is limited.)

    Someone earlier had asked if Dzhokhar's mom was still in the US. His dad has said she's in Russia right now. In addition, he said he - the dad - had returned to Russia because he'd become ill. Some of my Russian friends will do that - they sometimes go to Russia if they need major medical attention, as they don't have health insurance in the US.

    The Globe is reporting that one of their co-op students, in their sports department, knew Dzhokhar very well in high school, and - not thinking that Dzhokhar could possibly be the suspect shown in the pictures, and yet seeing a bit of a resemblance - tried to reach out to Dzhokhar to warn him to be careful, as due to the resemblance, he might be thought to be a suspect. The co-op student did not reach Dzhokhar.

    Yes - or one very similar. It was a very clear, bright photo.

    The Uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, is being interviewed on tv (it says it is live, but I am not sure about that.) He is PISSED at his nephews. Obviously extremely upset. Defends their father (his brother) as having nothing whatsoever to do with what the sons did. Says his family is deeply ashamed of what his nephews have done. That his nephews have shamed Chechens in general, putting shame on the entire ethnicity, making the world think that this represents who they are. He begs the forgiveness of the victims on behalf of his family.


    The AP is reporting that UMass Dartmouth students say that Dzhokhar was on campus at UMass Dartmouth this week after the bombings.

    The father now says he believes his sons were set up. He does not say by whom.

    The Daily Mail describes the Toronto aunt as a battlefield surgeon who wrote a book and practices in Toronto. If that is also true then she must be one heck of a woman to be both a surgeon and a lawyer.

    Well, she DID say that Chechens have to prove themselves twice and even three times more than others.
