    That's not the street Sorrell, that's the sidewalk, see all the brickwork. It's just incredibly wide.

    I've been trying & trying to respond to your post, but I got stuck in the ever-annoying spin cycle - grrrrrr! I finally just logged off & then logged back on.

    TY for this link - I see the "blast seat" now. This is a much clearer photo. TY very much!

    It does appear as if it went off directly behind where Krystle & her friend were standing, doesn't it?

    If you compare the above pic to this one you will see exactly where the blast seat was, where the smoke still gathered.

    I hope this picture won't make anyone uncomfortable. Mod, if this is not appropriate please remove it.

    Just want to point out that the fence on the left does not appear to have fallen over, neither towards the street nor the sidewalk. It is still standing.

    An eyewitness account of the shootout that I hadn't read previously:

    The shots, around 12:50 a.m., woke resident Jennings Aske, at 66 Laurel Ave. When he looked out his window he saw a green Honda Civic sedan stopped in the street, with its lights on and the driver’s side windows blown out. A husky man – apparently Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- stood nearby firing a gun.

    “I saw him standing there shooting at police,” Aske said. “When he fired, there was a little flash of light. I could hear the gun firing. It was terrifying.”

    A police SUV came down Laurel Street, hearing west toward Dexter Ave., crashing into some trash cans on the sidewalk and into a parked car. Aske said he then saw a black Mercedes SUV drive up, also heading west toward Dexter Avenue. Then he heard two or three loud explosions, one of them large enough to shake the house. In an instant, the street “was crawling with police,” he said.

    Lawyers seek release for accused bombing coverup suspect

    The Cambridge suspect accused of covering up for Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by lying to authorities wants a judge to release him from custody with a GPS monitor, according to a motion filed by his lawyer today.

    Robel Phillipos should be released while he awaits trial because he has no prior arrest record and has strong ties to his family, church and community, his lawyers, Derege B.Demissie and Susan B. Church, argued in court papers.

    Awful though it is to think of it, I believe the nature and location of the injuries sustained by the victims at that location, especially the R family, may be crucial in determining where the blast came from. If their main injuries were to the back then DT's backpack is in the frame, but if they are more to the front then the package near the bin comes into play. Also if barriers etc were blown forward, possibly DT's bag, but if backward, possibly the package.

    It could be the subject of extensive forensic evidence and expert testimony from both sides at trial, IMO. I say watch this space!

    Catching up here, so probably addressed already

    Bomb investigators weren't born yesterday ... they will know precisely where it was sitting when it detonated.

    Even in looking at Andrew Kitzenberg's pics of the bomb blast during the gunfight, it is absolutely clear from the pavement where that bomb landed.

    Article about DT: The Dark Side, Carefully Masked

    But there were oblique signs that the gulf between the private and the public person was widening. Between raunchy jokes and posts about girls and cars on Twitter, Mr. Tsarnaev described terrifying nightmares about murder and destruction. In the last year, he alluded to disaffection with his American life and the American mind-set.

    And as the date of the marathon drew close, he dropped cryptic hints of a plan of action, and the righteousness of an unspoken cause.


    More here: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/05/us...sked.html?_r=0

    Lots of little bits of info about him and his life, the family, TT's influence.

    ... the older brother and their mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, “had a deep religious epiphany” about two or three years ago. At the time, Tamerlan’s new devotion only irritated Dzhokhar, he said.

    During one visit about two years ago, he said, Tamerlan ordered him (friend) and Dzhokhar to sit and forced the two teenagers to read a book about the fundamentals of Islam and prayer. After that, he said, they began avoiding the apartment.

    “He’d say: ‘Let’s not go to my house. Tamerlan will just make us read,’ ” he said. “And he was a big dude, so we kind of had to listen to him.”

    During one exchange of text messages, he said, Dzhokhar indicated that Tamerlan was in the apartment with him. When Mr. Mazaev was slow to reply, he added: “Hey, stop ignoring me. Come back. Don’t make me suffer alone.”


    He was also playing computer games - someone here had earlier asked about that.

    Very interesting article for those who like to dig deeper into psychological issues.

This has been niggling at me.
    I don't see it that way at all PIM.

    Those barriers look about 8 to 10 feet wide. The one that was behind the post box is still there because the post box prevented it from being blown outward into the street, but approx. 4 feet of the left side of that barrier is bent outward and against the left side of the post box.

    Don't forget that victims were standing and leaning on the barrier that has fallen inward toward the restaurant.

    I don't know how it is with a bomb but when in a rear-end collision the body actually presses back into the seat before it follows on a forward thrust. In a front-end collision the body goes forward, then back and sometimes forward again depending on the force of impact. It would seem logical that any impact would cause similar reactions to an object or person that is stationary.
    The facts are now buried amongst theory, opinion and rumor.

    I hope there's a trial. Noodled1 - you've posted recently that you think DT may take a plea bargain.

    Would you mind explaining your reasons why you believe this, as well as why you believe federal prosecutors may offer or agree to a plea?
    They agreed with Loughner.
    Just my opinion

    This is one of the more interesting background articles I've read. Certainly more informative than the Time's earlier fluffy piece about DT's Holden Caulfield-ish alienation. While I believe DT was close to TT and looked up to him in many aspects, it also seems that at least for a time, he considered TT something of a buzzkill. He continued with his partying lifestyle despite TT's disapproval right up to the time of the bombings. I wonder what or who pushed DT over the ideological edge. I have no doubt that TT was a factor, but I also wonder if his growing interest in the turbulent history of his homeland and the surrounding region contributed to his shift. A new sense of nationalistic pride and grievance might have made him more accepting of TT's radical religious views. All MOO
