Tsarnaev Brothers Killed MIT Officer Because They Needed A Gun

 

 

“The original question is they walked up to that car and appeared they shot the officer in the head unprovoked, that it was an assassination. But why? How did that fit into their plan? The operating theory now in the investigation is they were short one gun. The older brother had a gun. They wanted to get a gun for the younger brother and the fastest and most efficient way they could think of doing it was a surprise attack on a cop, to take his weapon and go. Officer Collier had a locking holster, it’s like a three-way lock. If you don’t know how to remove the gun, you’re not going to get it out. There was apparently an attempt to yank it and they couldn’t get it and left. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emergencies Bring Out The Best In Citizens And First Responders, Worst In First Reactors

 

 

 

 

” This nation’s character has been severely tested this week. So has the character of many of our leading lights and talking heads. Emergencies this week have consistently brought out the best in ordinary Americans and first responders. The same cannot be said for the media or the “first reactors.” 

Hat tip to the Daily Caller for catching that headline. It has been a shameful week in media and social media. David Sirota infamously wanted the Boston terrorists to turn out to be white, for the politics, and got his wish — sort of. They’re white, but also Chechen and Muslim, and naturalized citizens.

If there’s a lesson to be learned from this week, it’s that if there’s an emergency, rely on the burly, decisive ones around you and not those chattering about themselves in the peanut gallery, trying to score political points off it all. The first will give their life for you without hesitation. The second will watch you die and then turn your corpse into a political pinata, also without hesitation.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Second Boston Bombing Suspect Taken Into Custody

 

 

 

” At about 10:30 p.m., authorities said, the two shot and killed MIT Police officer Sean Collier, 26, as Collier sat in his cruiser. It was unclear what triggered that shooting: authorities said surveillance video appears to show the two approaching Collier and killing him without warning.

After that, the men allegedly carjacked a Mercedes sport utility vehicle, and took the driver with them. At least one brother told the carjacked driver that they were the marathon bombers. They forced the driver to stop at several bank machines, and took $800 that he withdrew. After a few minutes, the man was left behind at a gas station, unharmed. It was unclear if he escaped, or was let go.

From there, the brothers drove about three miles, throwing explosives out the window at police. In Watertown, they engaged in a shootout with police, in which at least 200 rounds were fired.

Authorities said that Tamarlan Tsarnaev left the car at one point, and attempted to throw an explosive at officers. The device, however, went off in his hand. Police then tackled the wounded suspect in the street. Then, authorities said, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev–still behind the wheel of a car, swerved at the officers in an effort to hit them.

The officers dodged. Tamerlan did not. He was dragged under the car, and later died at a Boston hospital. In the same confrontation, a Boston Transit police officer was also shot and wounded. Officials later identified the officer as Richard H. Donahue, 33, who was treated at Mt. Auburn Hospital and released.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev escaped. Police later conceded that there were not enough officers to establish a perimeter. The teenager is believed to have fled on foot: police found a small blood trail, indicating he was injured.

Then he vanished.”
