Boston bombing suspect is walking, mother says
May 30, 2013

MAKHACHKALA, Russia (AP) -- The remaining suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has recovered enough to walk and assured his parents in a phone conversation that he and his slain brother were innocent, their mother told The Associated Press on Thursday.
 
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, walked without a wheelchair to speak to his mother last week for the first and only phone conversation they have had since he has been in custody, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva told the AP.
In a rare glimpse at Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's state of mind, he told her he was getting better and that he had a very good doctor, but was struggling to understand what happened, she said.
"He didn't hold back his emotions either, as if he were screaming to the whole world: What is this? What's happening?," she said.
The April 15 bombings killed three people and wounded more than 260. Elder brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed in a shootout with police, and Dzhokhar remains in a prison hospital after being badly wounded.
"I could just feel that he was being driven crazy by the unfairness that happened to us, that they killed our innocent Tamerlan," their mother said, standing by the family's insistent belief that their children are innocent.
The Tsarnaevs met the AP in their new apartment in a 14-story building in a well-to-do area of Makhachkala, the capital of the restive Caucasus province of Dagestan. The apartment had no furniture apart from a TV, a few rugs, and wallpaper materials lying on the floor.
Anzor Tsarnaev, the suspects' father, said they had bought it for Tamerlan, his wife, and their young daughter in the expectation that they would move to Makhachkala later this year. He added that they planned to turn their old home in a dingy district on the outskirts of town into a dentist's office, so that Dzhokhar, a dental hygiene student, could work out of it after completing his studies.
"All I can do is pray to God and hope that one day fairness will win out, our children will be cleared, and we will at least get Dzhokhar back, crippled, but at least alive," Tsarnaev said.

Boston fire chief resigns, citing bomb criticism
June 3, 2013

BOSTON (AP) — Boston's fire chief announced his resignation Monday, saying public criticism from his deputies for the way he responded to the marathon bombings has made it impossible for him to do his job.

Chief Steve Abraira said in a letter that his resignation is effective Friday.

Thirteen deputies complained to Mayor Tom Menino in a letter in April that Abraira's failure to take command of the bombing scene was indefensible and part of a pattern of shirking leadership.

"You can unequivocally consider this letter a vote of no confidence in Chief Abraira," said the letter, which was first reported by The Boston Globe.

Abraira has said his command staff had the bombing scene under control and he acted according to national standards, which dictate the chief takes charge only if something's going wrong.

In his resignation letter, he wrote, "The baseless attacks by the Deputy Chiefs, especially their actions of making this a matter of public debate by leaking their letter of April 26th to the press, has made it impossible for me to continue to do my job."

He said he never had support from "a number" of department members because he was hired from outside the department in 2011.

Abraira, the city's first Hispanic chief, was also the first hired from outside the department's own union. He previously led the Dallas department and was an assistant chief in Miami.

Libel suit filed against NY Post for marathon bombing story
Published: June 6, 2013


A Massachusetts man and a teenager have filed a lawsuit against the New York Post for running photos and articles that falsely alleged them to be suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Three days after the attacks, the Post printed the front-page headline “BAG MEN: Feds seek this duo pictured at Boston Marathon” along with a photo of 16-year-old Salaheddin Barhoum and 24-year-old Yassine Zaimi.

The Post said it had obtained an email that read, “The attached photos are being circulated in an attempt to identify the individuals highlighted therein. Feel free to pass this around to any of your fellow agents elsewhere.”

 

The Department of Justice had already sent out a statement saying, “Any images not released via FBI official channels should not be considered credible.”

Despite that, Post editor Col Allan refused to apologize.

Boston's top FBI official, who led marathon bombing probe, to retire
June 11, 2013

(Reuters) - The head of the FBI's Boston office, who has supervised high-profile investigations including the probe into April's Boston Marathon bombings, will retire next month after more than 26 years with the agency, the bureau said on Tuesday.

Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers, originally from Longmeadow, Massachusetts, has helmed investigations such as the 2010 operation code-named Ghost Stories, in which 10 people were rounded up as suspected Russian spies.

He became best known across the United States following the April 15 marathon bombing as the agent who stepped forward to ask the public for help identifying the two men suspected of placing the twin pressure-cooker bombs at the marathon finish line.

"Somebody out there knows these individuals," DesLauriers said at a press conference hours before the suspects were identified as ethnic Chechen brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Tamerlan died that night in a gun battle with police and Dzhokhar was apprehended a day later after a massive manhunt.

Suspect in Boston Marathon bombing indicted
June 27, 2013

BOSTON — Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev downloaded bomb-making instructions from an al-Qaida magazine, gathered online material on Islamic jihad and martyrdom, and later scribbled anti-American messages inside the boat where he lay wounded, a federal indictment charged Thursday.
The 30-count indictment includes many of the same weapon-of-mass-destruction charges, punishable by the death penalty, that were brought against the 19-year-old Tsarnaev in April.
But prosecutors added charges covering the slaying of an MIT police officer and the carjacking of a motorist during the getaway attempt that left Tsarnaev's older brother, Tamerlan, dead.
 
The Tsarnaev brothers had roots in the turbulent Russian regions of Dagestan and Chechnya, which have become recruiting grounds for Islamic extremists. They had been living in the U.S. about a decade.
But the indictment made no mention of any larger conspiracy beyond the brothers, and no mention of any direct overseas contacts with extremists. Instead, the indictment suggests the Internet played a central role in the suspects' radicalization.
The papers detail how, after using the Internet to study jihad propaganda and bomb-making instructions, the brothers placed knapsacks containing shrapnel-packed pressure-cooker bombs near the finish line of the 26.2-mile race.
The court papers also confirm that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev inadvertently contributed to his brother's death by running him over during a shootout with police.
The charges also cover the slaying of Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer Sean Collier, who authorities say was shot in his cruiser by the Tsarnaevs during their getaway attempt. The brothers tried to take his gun, prosecutors said.

One Fund Boston to distribute nearly $61 million to marathon victims
June 29, 2013
(CNN) -- The One Fund Boston, a nonprofit created to benefit the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, has begun distributing nearly $61 million to 232 eligible claimants, the fund said in a news release Saturday.
Payments will be issued beginning June 30 and represent 100% of all the money that was collected by the fund through June 26, the release said
At least 264 people were wounded and 3 were killed in the double bombings, which took place near the Boston marathon finish line on April 15.
To be considered for payment, those injured had to file claims. While it was not specified in the release, failure to do so could explain why about 30 of those injured are not included among the claimants.
Payments will be made to claimants in each of the four classifications of claims (categories A through D), according to the release.
Six people in Category A will each receive $2,195,000. This category includes loss of life and those who sustained double amputations of limbs or permanent brain damage.
Fourteen people in Category B will each receive $1,195,000. This category includes those who sustained a single amputation of a limb.
Sixty-nine people in Category C will each receive between $125,000 and $948,300. This category includes those who were physically injured and hospitalized for one or more nights and they will receive their payments determined by length of hospital stay.
The final category, D, will give 143 people $8,000 each. This category includes those who were physically injured but released without an overnight hospital stay.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleads not guilty in Boston Marathon bombings
July 10, 2013



WASHINGTON — Dzhokhar Tsarnaev leaned over a microphone and in a Russian accent repeated "not guilty" again and again to potential capital murder charges Wednesday in a courtroom packed with victims getting their first look at the man accused in the Boston Marathon bombings.

His left arm in a cast, his jaw apparently bruised, his eye swollen, Tsarnaev flashed a wry smile at his two sisters in Islamic dress, then blew them a kiss as he was led away after the arraignment, according to media reports. One of the sisters was holding a baby. The other was crying.

The 19-year-old Chechen immigrant and naturalized U.S. citizen faces 30 federal charges — 17 of which could bring a death sentence or life in prison — including detonating a weapon of mass destruction resulting in deaths. Other charges include bombing a public place and malicious destruction of property stemming from the April 15 bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260.

Authorities stepped up security for Tsarnaev's first public court appearance. He was driven to and from the courthouse in a white van escorted by a three-vehicle motorcade with heavily armed police. Outside, a small group of Tsarnaev supporters chanted "Justice for Dzhokhar" and jockeyed on the sidewalk with victims and others still visibly angry over the bombings.

Rolling Stone stirs up controversy with cover story of bombing suspect
July 17, 2013

(NECN: Justin Michaels) – The latest cover of “Rolling Stone” magazine will feature Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The explanation of the article simply says "How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster."

Contributing Editor Janet Reitman wrote this article.

The magazine says the writer spent two months interviewing thousands of people to get a comprehensive story.

Dramatic images of Tsarnaev's last stand
July 18, 2013

A Massachusetts state police photographer angered by Rolling Stone magazine's latest cover of Boston boming suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev has released never-before-seen photos of Tsarnaev just before he was taken into custody.

Pictures taken by Sgt. Sean Murphy, and first published by Boston Magazine, show a bruised and bloody Tsarneav emerging from the backyard boat he hid in after a confrontation with authorities that left his brother and alleged bombing accomplice dead.

Four Reasons Why Rolling Stone’s Cover Is Upsetting
July 18, 2013

Objections to Rolling Stone‘s article about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have ranged from the fact that the coverage humanizes Tsarnaev to the choice of photo to the fact that Rolling Stone usually, though not always, puts a celebrity on its cover. Here, four compelling arguments from those who have voiced disapproval:

Woman accused of posing as Boston Marathon victim
July 19, 2013

 
Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley says 26-year-old Audrea Gause of Troy, N.Y., was arrested there Friday on a Massachusetts fugitive warrant charging her with larceny.
Coakley says Gause submitted a claim to the fund, including false medical records indicating she was treated at hospitals in Boston and in New York for a traumatic brain injury suffered in the bombings. She received a $480,000 check from the fund.
Coakley says authorities got a tip last week that Gause may not have been in Boston on the day of the marathon, and the hospitals later said they didn't treat her.

Cop gets 'desk duty' for leaking bomb suspect photos
July 23, 2013

He has said he was angry over a glam cover photo of the bombing suspect on "Rolling Stone" magazine.

The Massachusetts State Police photographer who leaked arrest photos of the Boston bombing suspect in the wake of a glam cover shot by Rolling Stone has been placed on restricted or "desk duty" pending a full investigation of the case, according to Boston media.

The action came during a closed hearing before a three-person panel for Sgt. Sean Murphy, a veteran state police officer.

Murphy had provided Boston magazine photos of a wounded and unkempt bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev moments before he was arrested in the backyard of a Watertown, Mass., residence on April 19.
 
Murphy had said in a statement to Boston magazine that the cover shot on Rolling Stone, reminiscent of its treatment of Jim Morrison, was an insult to police, military members and the families of anyone killed in the line of duty.

Murphy wasn't authorized to release the photos, and he's already served a one-day, unpaid suspension.

"This guy is evil," Murphy said. "This is the real Boston bomber. Not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine."

The Tsarnaev brothers were suspects in the April 15 twin bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon that left three people dead and injured more than 200.

Tsarnaev, who is being held at a prison medical center, is also accused of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer while on the run three days later.

The U.S. attorney's office called the release of the photos "completely unacceptable," and some attorneys said the images and Murphy's comments could be used to argue government bias against Tsarnaev.

Murphy was not allowed to talk to reporters after the hearing, but his 19-year-old son, Connor Murphy, said he supported him "100 percent."
 

Murphy will keep his job for now, but will be assigned to a desk duty pending a final ruling in the case.

F.B.I. Said to Conclude It Could Not Have Averted Boston Attack
August 1, 2013

WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. has concluded that there was little its agents could have done to prevent the Boston Marathon bombings, according to law enforcement officials, rejecting criticism that it could have better monitored one of the suspects before the attack.
That conclusion is based on several internal reviews that examined how the bureau handled a request from a Russian intelligence agency in 2011 to investigate whether one of the suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, had been radicalized during his time in the United States.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s college friends indicted for allegedly impeding Boston Marathon bombing investigation
August 8, 2013

Two former UMass-Dartmouth students with ties to Boston Marathon terror bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were indicted today on obstruction of justice charges for allegedly trying to impede the Boston Marathon terror bombing investigation.

Kazakhstan nationals Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazhayakov, 19, are accused of helping to get rid of incriminating evidence that Tsarnaev left behind in his college dorm room on April 18, three days after the terror bombing killed three and wounded 260 in downtown Boston.

The two face charges of conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice.

According to US Attorney Carmen Ortiz’s office, the two acted at the behest of Tsarnaev, who sent them a text message urging them to head to his dorm “room and take what’s there.’’ The two students allegedly collected Tsarnaev’s laptop, fireworks, and a backpack and took them to their apartment in New Bedford.

Later that night Kadyrbayev, with what prosecutors called Tazhayakov’s “knowledge and agreement,’’ put the items in a garbage bag and put them in a dumpster at the apartment. They were later recovered by law enforcement after several days of searching a New Bedford dump.

The two were already in custody, facing a May 1 criminal complaint charging them only with conspiracy to obstruct justice.

Supporters have described what they did as the innocent act of devoted friends.

Boston Bomb Suspect’s Friends Plead Not Guilty in Case
Aughust 13, 2013

Two friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty to charges that they tried to obstruct a federal investigation into the case by destroying evidence.
Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov, both 19, entered pleas at an arraignment in federal court in Boston today on three counts of obstructing justice and aiding and abetting. They were arrested April 20 and are being held without bail.
Both men appeared in court wearing prison-issued orange jumpsuits and waived a reading of the indictment. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie Siegmann told U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler that she expects the trial to last two weeks and the government will call 15 to 20 witnesses. Bowler scheduled a status hearing for Sept. 26.
On April 15, two explosions occurred in Boston near the finish line of the annual marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 200. Three days later, the FBI published images of the principal suspects, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan.
Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov, citizens of Kazakhstan who attended the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth with Dzhokhar, saw the images online and recognized their friend, prosecutors said. They went to Tsarnaev’s dormitory, removed his laptop computer and a backpack containing fireworks and a jar of Vaseline and brought the items to their apartment in New Bedford, Massachusetts, according to the indictment.
Trash Bin
The backpack was placed in a garbage bag and put in a trash bin, according to the prosecutors. The Federal Bureau of Investigation recovered it from a landfill about a week later.
One of the suspects told the other that Tsarnaev had used the Vaseline to make bombs, according to the indictment. Also, the suspects saw that the fireworks had been opened and emptied of powder, according to court records.

Also arrested was Robel Phillipos, 19, another friend of Tsarnaev’s who the FBI said accompanied the other two to the dorm room and removed the items. He was charged with making false statements to federal investigators. According to a court filing, he’s in plea negotiations with the government.

Sarcasm alert!!!  Sure.  Veteran cops with 25 years experience are given the graveyard shift after they've worked at department headquarters.  And it's absolutely not punishment after coming back after a suspension. 

Really?!  What's the story then?


http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2013/08/15/mass-cop-suspended-for-tsarnaev-leak-back-on-job/2660911/
Mass. cop suspended for Tsarnaev leak back on job
August 15, 2013

The Massachusetts cop suspended after leaking arrest photos of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev — following the publication of a sympathetic photo of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect on the cover of Rolling Stone — is back at work.

Sgt. Sean Murphy, a 25-year veteran of the state police, is now working the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m graveyard shift at Athol. Murphy had been at the department's Framingham headquarters.

Murphy took the crime-scene pictures as Tsarnaev, 20, was arrested.

State police spokesman David Procopio says Murphy's assignment, which began last week, is not punishment for the unauthorized release of dozens of photos, including some showing the bloodied former college student with the red laser dot of a police sniper's scope on his forehead.

The photos had been leaked after what some considered an inappropriately glamorous shot of Tsarnaev on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

Murphy said in a statement to Boston magazine that the Rolling Stone photo was insulting.

"As a professional law-enforcement officer of 25 years, I believe that the image that was portrayed by Rolling Stone magazine was an insult to any person who has ever worn a uniform of any color or any police organization or military branch, and the family members who have ever lost a loved one serving in the line of duty," Murphy told Boston magazine. "The truth is that glamorizing the face of terror is not just insulting to the family members of those killed in the line of duty, it also could be an incentive to those who may be unstable to do something to get their face on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine."
