It was absurd that a city of millions shutdown, and a cowardly people surrendered their basic rights and human dignity, because of the threat of one young terrorist.
Now it seems that the same thuggish Boston Police Department that ran roughshod over the rights of it’s law abiding citizens, forcing them from their homes at gun point and aiming machine guns at people who dared film their abuse, has been caught blatantly lying about the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev:
Two unnamed U.S. officials have told the Associated Press that the surviving suspect in the Boston bombings was unarmed when police captured him hiding inside a boat in a neighborhood back yard.
The report contradicts the Boston police department’s own account of Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s capture on Friday – after commissioner Ed Davies described a firefight between him and officers before the terror suspect was captured.
The New York Times also said an M4 rifle had been found on the boat – another claim contradicted by the latest revelations.
Officers had originally said they had exchanged gunfire with Tsarnaev for more than one hour Friday evening before they were able to subdue him.
But on Wednesday, the law enforcement officials told the AP that no gun was found aboard the vessel.
It now appears that the only firearm carried by either brother was the Ruger pistol used by Tamerlan and recovered with his body the previous night, along with their cache of homemade bombs.
Dzhokar Tsarnaev was unarmed as Boston cowered in fear from him, and an over-militarized and under-trained police department felt compelled to lie to cover up their heavy-handed tactics and inept weapons discipline.
