Boston bomb suspect linked to 2011 killings

Deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev participated in a 2011 gruesome triple homicide outside Boston along with a Chechen killed early Wednesday during a confrontation with the FBI and Massachusetts State Police in Orlando, Florida, a federal law enforcement official told CNN.

Ibragim Todashev, who died during the interview with authorities, not only confessed to his direct role in slashing the throats of three people in Waltham, Massachusetts, but also fingered Tsarnaev in the deaths, the official said Wednesday.

      To an American, the Chechnyan Mom is a nut but for an islamic separatist who has been in a thirty year vicious separatist was with Russia, she's just a good mom raising good islamic jihadists. And the Mom didn't stamp "approved" on these guys' immigration applications – the US government did. They are here murdering Americans because your government is letting loons in. And those are among the ones they screen. Who knows what is wandering across the open border.

    Islam is a religion of peace. We are a nation of immigrants. Diversity is strength. Everybody is equal except the color of their skin.

    Meet Cameron D'Ambrosio. He's 18 and lives in a small town outside Boston. He wants to be a rapper and calls himself "Cammy Dee" in his YouTube videos.Oh, and he's been locked up without bail for weeks - facing terrorism charges and 20 years in prison - all for something he posted on Facebook.

      Why is Cameron D'Ambrosio's situation being ignored by CNN and the popular press?? This looks like a clear violation of his rights to free speech.

      Or how this news organization doesn't do a story on how the govt was wire tapping a reporter including his parents house phone. This story pertains to you and you chose not to report oh yea because this is not at all politically motivated. Mmm hmm. Yea sure

      His last name is Rosen. He is a highly respected reporter for Fox News. But this is not politically motivated is it s kel? You sir r as politically biased as they come. Can't even admit the blatant wrongs without spewing your typical message of hate. Let the govt wire tap your parents phone and see how you like it

      Hahahah timmy, "highly respected reported at Fox news".. Um... there are NO respected journalists at Fox news. You think CNN is one-sided but Fox is fair and balanced? You are completey dillusional.

    I have attended three separate memorial services so far this Memorial Day weekend. At all, there were cops swarming everywhere. It is truly sad that Americans cannot go to memorial day services without heavy protection from either our fellow Americans or illegal aliens that the government permitted in. Thanks, Obama. Is this the change you envisioned?

    According to FBI data base 90% of terrorist attacks on S soil between 1980-2005 were carried out by non muslims.
    More than 300 American deaths from political violence & mass shootings, 33 were perpetrated by those of muslim faith.

      Nationwide it's twenty-five per day, usually half murder, half vehicle related fatalities. Twenty-five US citizen fatalities attributable to illegal aliens. The murders are by pedophiles, criminals that walked in, and the vehicle related are no license, no insurance, cultural tolerance for driving under the influence of alcohol.

    See? That just goes to prove that Tamerian was the big, bad leader, and his younger brother, who fell under Tamerian's influence, is therefore...well, like "innocent."

    You can see it in their eyes.
    They look like cold blooded murderers.
    Also this guy had a problem keeping his mouth shut.
    If anyone hears this kind of anti_American hate speech, they should report the person before they can do harm.
    I'm off to go report Fox News and their minions as being potential domestic terrorists.
