Uncle to Boston terror suspect: ‘Turn yourself in’

This undated photo provided by the vkontakte website shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been on the run, described as “armed and dangerous” and suspected of the Boston Marathon bombing. His brother, Tamerlan, was killed during a violent police chase. The two ethnic Chechen brothers came from Dagestan, a Russian republic bordering the province of Chechnya. AP

WASHINGTON—An angry uncle of the two Boston bombing suspects pleaded Friday with one nephew still on the run to “turn yourself in and ask forgiveness” from victims of the worst US terror attack since 9/11.

In an impassioned 10-minute interview with reporters outside his Maryland home, Ruslan Tsarni said his nephews “put a shame on the entire Chechen ethnicity” and expressed a desire to apologize personally to the victims.

“I’m ready just to bend in front of them, to kneel in front of them seeking their forgiveness,” a visibly moved Tsarni said, stressing that his own family has had “nothing to do” with his brother’s family for several years.

Tsarni’s nephews Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev are the prime suspects in Monday’s bombings at the finish of the Boston Marathon.

Tamerlan died after a shootout with law enforcement, and the city is on virtual lockdown amid a massive manhunt for the younger brother.

“Dzhokhar, if you’re alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness,” Tsarni said, adding he was “shocked” to see FBI images of his nephews on television and the Internet.

Tsarni said he is legally in the United States and that his family are ethnic Chechen Muslims.

But he said the two suspects had never been to Chechnya, a mainly Muslim region in southern Russia, and were unlikely to be involved in the unrest of recent years there.

“If that happened, most likely somebody radicalized them.”

Tsarni said his nephews arrived in the United States from Kyrgyzstan, in Central Asia, in 2003 and were given asylum, but he called them “losers” who could not integrate into American life.

Asked why they might have turned to terrorism, he said: “Hatred to those who were able to settle themselves.

“These are the only reasons I can imagine. Anything else, anything else to do with religion, with Islam, it’s a fraud,” he said. “It’s a fake.”

Tsarni, dressed in a light blue polo shirt and standing outside a brick home in Montgomery County, Maryland, sounded anguished about what had transpired.

“Of course we’re ashamed,” he said. “I respect this country. I love this country.”

“This country, which gives chance to everybody else to be treated as a human being… that’s what I feel about this country.”

    … and they will be gifted with 70 virgins in heaven, as their “book” says …
    just a thought…

    • Benigno the Turd

      Guess no one told them the virgins all look like De Lima.

    • 33Sam

      Ask the cops that killed the older brother where are the SOP police dash-cam videos of these “suspects” “throwing bombs???” These brothers were framed, one murdered to blame and silence and they tried to kill the second brother to silence him from telling the truth.

      • zdrx

        if their aim was to silence the brothers…why was the younger one spared? he could have been killed in the boat during the gunbattle…and no one will question. we call it “salvaging” here. so much for your conspiracy theory. you need to blow up your empty head. LOL

      • 33Sam

        YOU NEED TO GET A HEAD BECAUSE ALL I SENSE FROM YOU IS YOU’RE ALL A$$!!!! I DON’T KNOW WHY THE YOUNGER BROTHER WASN’T KILLED BUT THEY CUT HIS THROAT OPEN SO HE COULDN’T TALK. TIME WILL TELL. TAMERLAN WAS CIA ITS JUST COME OUT SO WILL WAIT AND SEE WHAT COMES OUT ON THAT. ANYWAY THE DEFINING ISSUE IS THAT THESE BOYS WERE FRAMED AND WHY THEY WERE PICKED, IS ANYONE’S GUESS AT THIS POINT. AS MUCH AS YOU THINK YOU’RE CLEVER GOING AGAINST THE TRUTH, YOU’RE ONLY GIVING YOURSELF AND FILIPINOS A BAD NAME. HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR YOURSELF OR AT LEAST FOR YOUR CULTURE.

  • banana na

    dalawa lang ang pipiliin ng suspect na ito, dead or alive…pina-asylum ng US…ito pa ginawa sa america, habang ang daming peoples in the world na gusto mag-immigrates sa US pero di maka-pasok kasi mahigpit ang regulation nila…kung ayaw mo ang US ay wag kang tumira dyan, bumalik ka sa bansa mo…

      notice the word “hatred” is once again used…..sounds familiar ?

      1.) all they know is to use violence and intimidation.
      2.) they do an evil act then blame others for doing that.
      3.) they are always right and all the rest are wrong
      4.) when caught, they cry discrimination, unfairness and being singled out for their beliefs.

      nothing new.

    • 33Sam

      They didn’t do it, they were framed.

  • simondj

    they bombed because they are being deceived by their handlers, possibly a muslim imam. the imam promised them freedom but they (the imam) are slaves of their own evil desire. to conquer or to compel all people to one religion.

  • jpmd88

    FBI should get medieval on this suspect when they get him

    • 33Sam

      The FBI was responsible for the World Trade Center bombing in 1993 when a 1,200 pound bomb packed into a van parked under the Center in the basement in a “government parking only ” slot went off killing several people and costing half a billion dollars damage. So be careful who you consider trustworthy. The FBI is not the holy bunch you think they are..

      • zdrx

        HA HA HA

      • 33Sam

        DID ANYONE HEAR A DONKEY LAUGH???

      • zdrx

        a sheep can laugh…hyenas can bleat…a snake can roar…germs can growl. maybe it’s all in your psychedelic mind, dude. quite colorful.

      • 33Sam

        Some people think that being stupid is clever. Do your research dummy. The case went to court as the FBI operative SALEM took the FBI to court for this WTC Bombing in 1993. So if you want to look stupid because you shot the previous post down based on your lack of knowledge of the facts then go ahead. The world is full of stupid people, why not be one more?? Flies on sh!t

      • zdrx

        you confirmed my suspicion that you love cloak and dagger stuff…where intrigues, misinformation, decoys etc. abounds. it was an FBI operation that went wrong…and you believe double agent emad. his testimony and “evidences” were not even used for the kind of cr-p they were. LOL

    Moslems are very strict about morals. Given the permissiveness and promiscuity in American society, they naturally can not integrate with the system which despite having given them material prosperity, they naturally resist. This is also the experience of faithful Christians in American society but good for the Christian religion, love is at the center of its doctrines which naturally promotes forgiveness and tolerance and encourages solutions through loving measures and of course lots of prayers. If Christianity has not come to this world 2,000 years ago, a very good friend has said that most probably all men and women are by now toothless and blind since the norm of society before Christ came was “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”. Is this not being clearly demonstrated in the unending violence between Israel and the Arab countries?

    radicalized

  • pilipino

    Islamic US immigrants have been the culprits of terrorism in the US. I can’t imagine how worse the situation can become if Obama has his way with his liberalized US immigration policy which will attract millions more of radical Islamic immigrants with their twisted ideology of Jihad to prepare the way for their so called Mahdi or Islamic Messiah who is actually the Anti-Christ!

    • 33Sam

      On the contrary, Obummer’s liberalized immigration policy is a Titanic iceberg plot to sink the economy of the U.S., allow illiterate ignorant immigrants into the U.S. who will drive down wages till real Americans can’t work and then become voters on policies that further the bankruptcy and dismantling of the U.S., the immigrants thinking they have their chance to be “Americans” when thy have no clue what they are voting for or what it means to be “American.” See how this politicos fool you into thinking they care about you? They don’t!!! Mohammed Atta blamed for 9/11 was a CIA agent. Its been admitted already. So don’t just look at Islam being all evil. These people were used to paint a racial profile in the minds of people to brainwash you into thinking this is true. They use all sorts of nationals as terrorists and chose which face they want to put on the terrorist. They originaly planned on putting a white American red-neck face as the people behind the BOSTON bombing, BUT THEY GOT FOILED BY ALTERNATIVE MEDIA AND INTELLIGENCE GROUPS who released photos of Navy Seals with backpacks standing around the marathon site so they kept shuffling through their “list” of “patsies” to blame, then it went to “Muslim terrorists”,then “lone wolf white terrorist” to even “navy seal terrorists” and then the white Russian guys was where the “wheel of fortune” ended up for these U.S. govt crooks who planned this whole murderthon!!!

      Fake blood look like a sane part of a terror plot? Who else but government would be able to do this using a fake actor to play the part of a real crippled U.S. vet.
      iDOTimgurDOTcom/aHiNNQ8DOTjpg

      The plan is to put the U.S. under MARTIAL LAW. They used this bombing to brow beat people into staying their homes while they looked for “the suspect.” Pathetic. Wake up people, you are being royally fooled into thinking and believing their lies. The same people who put their hand on a bible and swore to protect its citizens are the same people who helped this happen.

      The anti-Christ lives in Washington D.C.

      • zdrx

        BRAVO…..clap, clap, clap (standing ovation). now that you got your split seconds of fame……you can go back where you came from. pathetic ” @$Z#*^ “. LOL

      • 33Sam

        You are the one looking for fame jackass so stop projecting your psychosis to one who wants the world to wake up before its too late. You don”t know $HIT!!! Now that you made an a$$ of yourself, go back to living in the toilet where your mother aborted you!

      • zdrx

        oh…..thanks to your messianic effort, we’re now awake to find out you need professional help. go see a shrink…you piece of poo.

      • 33Sam

        ISN’T THE REASON YOUR EYES ARE DARK IS BECAUSE YOU’RE FULL OF SH!T TO THE EYEBROWS???
        PSYCHIATRY IS THE BIGGEST SCAM BETWEEN GOVERNMENT BIG PHARMA WHO ALL WANT TO KILL YOU WHILE MAKING BILLIONS OFF OF SUCKERS LIKE YOU!!! DONE WITH YOUR LUCIFERIAN SH!T-FEST!?? NOW GO BACK TO HELL…

      • zdrx

        now you’re hallucinating….tsk tsk. stay away from water, concrete walls, ropes, poisons, bladed weapons or firearms etc…stay put, you might harm yourself. call 7-11 for emergency, quick. LOL

      • 33Sam

        Deperado ka grabbing at straws!! Did you hurt yourself coming up with that slew of nonsense?? Are you proud of yourself that you know how to spell those ordinary words? Its obvious you are suicidal. BTW, did you find YOUR MOTHER YET???

      • zdrx

        yeah that’s right….did you find your mom for some solvent session?

      • pilipino

        In the White House, yes, to be specific and avoid misinterpretation.

      • 33Sam

        sad isn’t it?

  • http://twitter.com/Olibo2 Olibo

    I shed tears for this uncle who would kneel down for the victims of this terrorism. I won’t be surprised if he’d shoot his nephew right before their eyes. Now you can’t blame people to look for muslims, everytime bombing or explosion occur anywhere. As one politician said not all muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are muslims.

    • 33Sam

      You don’t know what you are talking about and neither does that LYING POLITICIAN you quoted!!!

      Does this look real?

      iDOTimgurDOTcom/aHiNNQ8DOTjpg

      The planners of this bombing had many racial types they could blame standing around and told to go to the race. They just waited till they could choose one to blame that most would believe. It was first going to be a white American patriot, then a Muslim, then a lone-wolf white guy, then even Navy Seals as the bombers. They ended with white russians who end up being Muslims. You people have no clue you are being fooled into believing who really did this. Only the U.S. government could create this even staging bomb victims with fake movie prop blood.

      Tsk tsk..get your facts straight..

      • zdrx

        OK…OK. you need to see a psychiatrist to straighten up your mind. tsk tsk…

      • 33Sam

        You need a brain to have a mind at all…

      • zdrx

        oh…you admitted you don’t have a brain. so you have no mind at all…therefore a psychiatrist is not needed. if that’s the case…you need a gun to blow your empty head. LOL

      • 33Sam

        NON SEQUITUR! NO, YOU PROVED YOU DON’T HAVE A BRAIN. AND BTW PSYCHIATRY IS FAKE. There is not a single diagnostic test for any so-called mental disorder. Never has been.

        staticDOTinfowarsDOTcom/2012/12/i/general/psychiatryDOTjpg

      • zdrx

        your non sequitur is even a non sequitur to an argument. i suggested you to see a psychiatrist to fix your mind…and you answered that you need a brain to have a mind. that is tantamount to admitting you don’t have mind because you don’t have a brain. therefore, forget my advice to get a gun and shoot your empty head. it’s a waste of ammo not to hit anything inside your skull.

        now you said there is no diagnostic test for mental disorders. then try witch doctors or faith healers…they might be able to help you. LOL

      • 33Sam

        No jerk, that was meant for you. But since you think you understand the thought processing needed to deeply understand English, you just tried in vain to twist it in your favor. Sadly it always backfires with you. You sound like a 5 year old trying to act like a graduate student. Your command of English is so poor and your conceptualization of your weaknesses is so off, you come off sounding like the idiot you really are.

        Ok now Oedipus, go find your MOTHER AND DO WHAT YOU DO BEST… ROFLMAO,

      • zdrx

        ok…i’m done with your mom…now it’s your turn…suq ma’dik.

  • 33Sam

    HOY THIS WHOLE BOSTON BOMBING IS A BIG FAT FAKE STAGED EVENT. THEY ARE LYING ABOUT IT!!!! Poor “suspect.” Another PATSY crisis actor sucked into the void of U.S. banker controlled UN-AMERICAN Government BULL$HIT!!!

    Does this look like real blood to you? Hollywood technicolor FAKE BLOOD!!! If this was a real event why go through the trouble of adding movie-prop blood??? Actually they mixed real victims, which there were from real explosives, with real blood and fake victims with fake blood.

    C’mon, how can this be real?

    Wake Up!!!!

    iDOTimgurDOTcom/aHiNNQ8DOTjpg

    The U.S. government has been funding Chechen rebels against the Russians for 20 years!!!

    They zig zagged on who the “suspects” would be. First it was right wing patriots, then Muslims, then to the “lone-wolf” plot ploy, then Navy Seals or people dressed as Seals, who were asked to stand out in the crowd, not aware they were going to be set up as the patsy in case they needed to go that route. But since the photos of the Seals with backpacks were released by intelligence groups fed up with the U.S. government’s criminal banker take-over, the “planners” went in another direction as is SOP for any staged event. They need a “plan b.”

    This is a precursor to MARTIAL LAW!!!

    • zdrx

      are you alright?

      • 33Sam

        I’m fine you seem to have the problem. People like you who do zero research think you know what is going on. You come with quickie-empty comebacks that are supposed to impart that you know something? Smarter people than you think you’re stupid so where does that put you?

      • zdrx

        is asking…. imparts i know something? if so………..will you please explain how can that be? i hope people like you who do some research…can untangle your contradictory statement.

        IF i say there are NO smart people to think i’m stupid…where does that put you?

      • 33Sam

        PUTS YOU BACK IN THE SAME CRAP YOU CRAWLED OUT OF WHICH IS IGNORANT PILE OF MONKEY CRAP!!! YOU KEEP SLIPPING ON YOUR OWN SH!T!!! GETS??

      • zdrx

        Uh, so you even think monkey cr-p can be ignorant. maybe you even talk to frogs pretending you’re a bird. what stuff do you sniff?……solvent or rugby? LOL

      • 33Sam

        What side of your a$$ do you prefer to talk out of if you use your mouth to take a sh!t?? That leaves only your a$$ to mouth breathe.

        Sounds like you’re just a jealous flip trying to impress himself that he thinks he knows something. Stop posting you’ll only lose. Nothing you say is clever, funny or deep. Trying hard ka talaga ano???

      • zdrx

        but everything you say here is obvious…trying hard to be someone else, you are not.

    Patsy brothers…The parents of these two boys are angry at the U.S. government and will whistle blow for being betrayed. It goes beyond the U.S. government and a puppet President. A power that controls the levers of power that controls the U.S. The U.S. is in danger of a nuclear war on the north American continent itself. This will have a serious ripple effect on the planet. Dire straits. Martial law happened in Boston.

    • zdrx

      HA HA HA. somebody is out of his mind here…and trying to grab attention. by calling others patsy…he thinks he can elevate his status. pathetic…LOL

      • 33Sam

        Of course STUPID PEOPLE THINK I’M STUPID SO HERE’S ONE MORE FOR THE SAND PILE OF EXCREMENT OF BRAINLESS FCKS! You are mirror imaging here trying to grab attention for yourself. I don’t care about status, the truth is all that matters. But you’re too ignorant to know this..TAMERLAN WAS CIA SO SWALLOW THAT AND CHOKE ON IT NANCY!!! BTW DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT A PATSY IS WITHOUT GOOGLING IT?

      • zdrx

        1) “THE SAND PILE OF EXCREMENT OF BRAINLESS FCKS!”…what’s that?
        2) if you’re not trying to grab attention…why are you acting like you’re at the top of a tin can…….ranting and raving?
        3) truth is in the eye of the beholder. compared to ours…how do you see or rank your truth? do you even know what REALITY is without “researching” it?
        4) i’m not a patsy…therefore, thank you for letting nancy, instead of me……swallow and choke on your garbage. LOL
        5) you seem bitter…are you mad that tamerlan enjoyed CIA glamor……and you’re not? HA HA HA

      • 33Sam

        FCUK YOU FLIP!!! where is it that I’m acting like anything you claim?? You think because you enumerate your bullsh!t that it bears weight and sounds correct??? Where did you learn that? What a small minded idiot you are! Did I say YOU were a patsy? Dickbrain? I said you were a “nancy” thats for sure because you think like a confused girl. If the shoe fits, wear it..What are you talking about a$$wipe-fecalskid? Where did I ever say I was bitter about Tamerlan “enjoyed CIA glamor?” You are inventing things and too stupid to know the difference. You are thE one who is grabbing attention. Go beat off now so you can do something you might have a handle on. Stay out of these threads. You make no sense at all…

      • zdrx

        FCUK you too!!!

        1) out of nowhere, you rant and rave nonsense…grabbing our attention to your insanity. irritating, annoying, bothering our equanimity
        2) do you think if you rant and rave nonsense…you sound correct? LOL
        3) uh, seems you learn to rant some nonsense by researching fantasy. small minded idiots like you should stop reading fantasy. too dangerous.
        4) miss nancy, i described myself not a patsy…where did i say you called me a patsy?
        5) the shoe is for girls…wear it. it fits you…nancy.
        6) you don’t have to say it…but you act like it. your bitterness of the CIA or even the FBI…is obvious. seems like someone got dumped in favor of tamerlan. “hell hath no fury, than a woman scorned”…..envious nancy.
        7) “you make no sense at all”…thanks for describing yourself

  • 33Sam

    The news is coming out that Tamerlan WAS CIA!!!

  • 33Sam

    Obama sent his secret service to keep Infowars’ Dan Bidondi quiet at the Boston Governor/Police/FBI Presscon held after the bombing, but it failed..Bidondi asked Gov. Patrick ON CAMERA if the bombing was a FLASE FLAG.. 2 points for the good side!!!

  • 33Sam

    This was all about Martial Law. 1000’s of troops went into Boston in a lock-down and people were told not to come out of their homes as troops searched for the so called bombers going in and out of thousands of homes. Murders happen every day in the U.S. YOU DON’T SEE OTHER SUCH INCIDENTS GO INTO A LOCKDOWN!!! Why only now? And in Boston?

    According to former U.S. Congressman and 2012 Presidential Republican candidate Dr. Ron Paul, in a statement he made on April 26, 2013, that the Boston lock-down was MARTIAL LAW. He also stated that “it was an armed confrontation against the people.” Stating the U.S. government through “Homeland Security is buying up all the ammunition, promising not to use them against American citizens, and then when you witness what went on in Boston, if this is not Martial Law I don’t know what Martial Law is going to look like.” Dr. Paul also said “the Constitution has been trampled.” Dr. Paul also stated “they have the major medias on their side so they paint us as “paranoid.” That “Congress should have more of a backbone” also “after Boston I wonder where we are.” and “people have to do it” “need to wake up more and more people to hound their Congressman to find out why and what are they up to” and “if they don’t get the information it will be too late.” Dr. Paul also stated “its time we defend it, our position that we want our freedoms back and we just get the government out of the way.”
