WATERTOWN, April 29, 2013 — “we got him !”
April 19, 2013 —
Thank you to all the officers and SWAT guys who gave up sleep and all for this long and sometimes frustrating search and find.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- SUGGESTION to my FB ppl : follow The_MsDD on Twitter for quicker and completer info on this Dzhokhar Tsarnaev story.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- @ethanklapper tweets that a translator has been brought in to “coax him out” of that boat. Alive. Sincerely hope they also have EMT unit on scene with blood or it’ll do no good to “coax him out.”
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Boston Globe >>> “neighbors say the police have told them that the man in that boat is “covered in blood.” Yet is still alive after bleeding for 14 hours since morning shootout. Chechen fighters HARD TO KILL and not just a movie title.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- BOSTON SCANNER : “standoff continues. man is alive in the boat.”
Why standoff ? Because they’re afraid he might be wearing a suicide vest and they don’t want to lose him AND have a huge explosion in this totally residential Watertown neighborhood.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- TSARNAEV UPDATE : Pete Williams of NBC reports that police are beginning to move in on (assault) the boat. Over very soon. Maybe with a bang. Or a whimper. You choose.
UPDATE >>> Man in that boat in Watertown is now moving, says Boston scanner. OK, here we go again.
MAYBE UPDATE : Boston Globe tweets that the tarp is off the boat in that Watertown yard (Franklin St at Mt Auburn, next to Church of the good Shepherd) and that man in boat is not moving. Judge for y’self, ppl.
NO UPDATE : Is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev dead in the boat or alive. Half say alive, half say dead. as DD is now 22 miles away, she has no better info 🙂
UPDATE : Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may be dead. In the boat in yard of house at Franklin and Mt Auburn Streets, Watertown. Not sure yet. (An area DD knows well from many political campaigns. East Watertown. Largest Armenian community in America. With his dark black hair and chiseled jaw he would look very Armenian and so attract less notice.)
APRIL 19, 2013 —- UPDATE : Dzhokhar Tsarnaev seems to be hiding in a boat under a boat cover in somebody’s yard on Franklin St Watertown. SWAT team closing ion. Shooting has stopped.
*** Breaking news: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev “is pinned down on Franklin Street” (Watertown). CNN reports. FOX reports that tear gas is being fired to hive him out of whatever dwelling he is in.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- am beginning to get very annoyed right now at all thus lockdown stuff. What happened to “terrorist can’t change our way of life cuz then they win”?
APRIL 19, 2013 —- NG —-> Watch interview with the Tsarnaev Brothers’ Uncle, Ruslan Tsarni :http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50145202n
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Amazing how many furry and/or cute DOG photos are on DD’s news feed right now. Comfort Dogs, DD is sure.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- News that younger brother 19-year old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is still at large, probably in East Watertown. Cannot post any details as BPD has requested no scanner info be published. Hopefully, ppl, this saga ends soon, and even more hopefully, with young Tsarnaev in custody alive. really d9o want to hear his story, if he chooses to tell it. Suspect it’s more complicated by far than the mere terrorist he has come t\into our view as.
Which does NOT mean that DD is going wobbly. Punishment he has surely earned.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Those who want to blame Islam for terrorists who happen to be Islamic have it backwards. Islam didn’t create the people. People created Islam. Blame the people, not the religion . Plus, Islam, like every man made thing, is what you make of it. Moral culpability goes to the person, not to what he makes.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- We newsies have been asked by BOD not to post info from the police scanner as to police tactics and whereabouts, and DD will honor that request. Next update will probably thus be capture or death of young Tsarnaev….
APRIL 19, 2013 —- No report yet if a capture of still at large Tsarnaev brother. Boston police scanner claims he is posting online that he “will kill all of you because you killed my brother.” (((Shrug)))
It is not clear that this post is n ot a fake. It does happen…,
WBZ : “policed report that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has assault rifle, bombs, is preparered to die.” Pretty sure that that will happen.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Those of us, including MsDD, who identified the two as Suni Tripathi and Mike Muguleta now need to apologize. Please let DD now do so. Sincerely, guys.
Dead Chechen brother is named Tamerlan Tzamaev. A frightful first name ….
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Third arrest in Chechen brothers bombing : a woman, handcuffed, dragged out if the Tzamaev apartment on Cambridge, resisting arrest. Family member ?
Cambridge police or FBI now searching through the Tzamaev Brotherz’ apartment at 410 Or 40 Norfolk Avenue.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Scene at 89 Nichols Street in Watertown. From friend Dave Wedge on Twitter. ID’d Dzhokhar A. Tzamaev – or whomever – holed up there ? Must be.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Dzhokhar A. Tzamaev, photo from his social network account. Thanks again to James Ciminera for identifying them as brothers 36 hours ago and to Francis Toohey for seeing them as Balkans and East.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- From AP : surviving bomber suspect identified as Dzhokhar A. Tzamaev, age 19, of Cambridge. Chechen. If true, then by all Means DD approves the radical measures the authorities have taken.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- The AP is now reporting that the two Boston bombing suspects are from Chechnya, or Turkey. If true, it makes Francis Toohey in his discussion // which DD said then was very insightful — on an earlier DD post look pretty darn shrewd. But we will see. AP could be Wrong.
Watertown today. Front line in the war in terror. The new normal.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Direct from Boston Police: search for suspect 2 continues.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Workers at Target in Watertown watching the press cried gathered for upcoming press conference by police…sometime, not sure when.
APRIL 19, 2013 —- Watertown seems to be loaded with cops. Residents are being advised not to open doors. One report RT’d by DD’s former Phoenix Chief editor, now @ Globe, says that people are being evacuated from area near where Suspect 2 is thought to be holed up.
APRIL 19, 2013 — Confirmed now that naked man arrested earlier in Middle of East Watertown manhunt was not Suspect 2. Wrong place wrong time !! corrected post that was put up by Moi earlier.
The scene in East Watertown right now. From Maria Sacchetti RT’d by Boston Globe reporter (DD’s former chief editor at Phoenix)
APRIL 19, 2013 —- From Boston Scanner @ Twitter. ; “suspect has locked himself inside a conference room on Talcott. Motion sensors going off. Help coming.”
APRIL 18, 2013 —- Boston Bombing —> this nan, reports Jeff Gauvin @ twitter, saw the black cap suspect drop a bag right at his feet two minutes before it exploded, he saw and identified the. Man and thus enabled the FBI to focus on the two guys it now hasidentified as suspects.
This man had both lower legs blasted away but bring do close to the blast probably saved his life because the metal on the bomb hadn’t yet expanded its field of blow.
