    Money woes delay marathon memorial

    "A memorial to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing victims that was due to be unveiled at this year’s race next month remains unfinished and won’t be installed in time, due to a funding delay.

    The city announced last April that an artist, Pablo Eduardo, had been selected to build two large pillars at the Boylston Street bombing sites, with a completion date scheduled for next month.

    But the Boston Planning & Development Agency wasn’t scheduled to distribute $1 million in funding for the project until just last week. And even then, the funding was removed from the agency’s agenda at the last minute due to a clerical error, according to Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s office.

    “It’s unfortunate there’s a delay,” said Peter Brown, whose two nephews, J.P. and Paul Norden, both lost limbs and suffered burns and shrapnel injuries in the bombings. “I hope it’s not about a lack of will.”..."

    How investigators solve a bombing


    "...Boston 25 News reporter Bob Ward analyzes the similarities between the terror in Texas and the Boston marathon bombings and how police eventually tracked down the bombers.

    Carmen Ortiz was Boston's U.S. Attorney during the marathon bombing investigation and led the investigation back in April 2013.

    Almost immediately after the bombs went off on Boylston Street, Ortiz was part of the task force that led to the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev within days.

    Now working in private practice, Ortiz says she understands the pressures authorities in Austin faced - trying to catch a killer before he could strike again.

    "It has to be all hands on deck, but you have to be coordinated," said Ortiz. "You have to share the information that you are gathering from moment to moment, and that has to come across to the victims, the families and the people that are closely impacted by what has occured."

    In Boston, Ortiz watched as the FBI, State and Boston Police combed through clues on Boylston Street, developing leads. That exact same meticulous process played out in Austin as those package bombs exploded.

    "You are trying to figure out where the materials came from, you're trying to figure out motive," said Ortiz. "Motive could lead you to certain individuals, you start to analyze this as suspects come on your radar."..."

    The incredible medical advances inspired by the Boston Marathon bombing survivors - letting these 17 victims run, bike, and rock-climb just five years on from the horrific attacks

    "17 people lost limbs in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, sparking an increase in funding for prosthetic research

    The lessons learned by working with survivors have helped researchers develop improved artificial limbs

    Many of the amputees are now able to do things such as run, bike, rock-climb and run 10Ks

    Research teams in Massachusetts, Maryland and hospitals around the country are working to further improve technology..."

    BU Remembers Heroes of the Marathon Bombings
    As fifth anniversary nears, speakers recall tragedy and heroism

    "For many people, the story of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings centers on brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who planted the bombs that killed 3 people, including Lu Lingzi (GRS’13), and injured 260, many of them needing amputations. For journalist Casey Sherman (COM’93), the narrative more properly focuses on heroes.

    When a publisher asked him to cowrite what became Boston Strong: A City’s Triumph Over Tragedy, the book that was the basis for Mark Wahlberg’s 2016 movie Patriots Day, Sherman, who was touched by homicide himself as the nephew of the Boston Strangler’s final victim, “didn’t want to glorify” the Tsarnaevs, he told a BU conference yesterday. “What I saw in the days after the bombings were examples of pure love.”

    At the conference, convened at the School of Law four days before the fifth anniversary of the tragedy, Sherman remembered several heroes from that day, ..."

    How Boston Survivors Are Staying Strong 5 Years After The Marathon Attack

    "It’s been five years since twin blasts near the Boston Marathon’s finish line changed thousands of lives forever.

    Since then, survivors of the April 15, 2013, attack have endured surgeries, post-traumatic stress and hearing loss. They’ve had to relearn how to walk and to rebuild their lives.

    They’ve also written books, launched charitable organizations, run more marathons, had babies, and developed lifelong and even romantic relationships with their heroes. They proved to be “Boston Strong.”

    HuffPost recently caught up with five of these incredible people. Here are their stories...."

    Since Boston bombing, terrorists are using new social media to inspire potential attackers

    "Five years ago, a deadly attack during the Boston Marathon made America’s nightmare come true: the radicalized boy next door.

    The research my colleagues and I conduct at Georgia State University tracks how terrorist organizations expose people – mostly young men – to radical messages and extreme violence on social media. The goal: changing their worldview and eventually guiding them to act.

    The Boston Marathon bombing marked the beginning of a new trend that is almost impossible to prevent. Before, individuals would receive guidance and training from terrorist organizations in person. Now, these same groups simply inspire individuals to carry out attacks on their own, for which the group can claim credit if they are successful. We call that “self-radicalizing.”

    Radicalization of the boy next door

    It remains puzzling to many how Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a 19-year-old stoner who listened to Jay-Z and watched “The Walking Dead,” could – with his older brother, Tamerlan – kill and injure so many innocent civilians...

    In the five years since the Boston bombing, the number of social media platforms disseminating terrorist propaganda has increased tenfold. And thus, so has the scale and scope of possible future attacks....

    Social media allows terrorist groups to foster a virtual community and a sense of belonging. Research on radicalization suggests that their methods involve taking advantage of individuals’ feelings of loneliness and alienation. However, this doesn’t explain why well-adjusted, well-integrated individuals who appear to have assimilated into Western society – like the Tsarnaevs – gravitate to violent extremist ideologies.

    Research I’ve done with colleagues on social media demonstrates that terrorist organizations also deliberately foster a type of addiction to the platform and to its content....

    As the Islamic state further recedes and loses even more territory, it is adapting to exist almost entirely digitally...."

    Rage Against The Mom: Psychoanalyzing The Link Between Upbringing And Terrorism

    "When 20-year-old Khamzat Azimov went on a deadly stabbing spree in Paris this month, a May 12 attack claimed by the Islamic State (IS) extremist group, details about his upbringing caught the attention of psychoanalyst and counterterrorism expert Nancy Hartevelt Kobrin.

    Considering Azimov's infancy in war-torn Chechnya, and the fact that he continued to live with his mother in a one-room Paris apartment until he was shot dead by police in the midst of his attack, Kobrin saw a pattern reflected in other Islamist terrorists she has studied and written about.

    They include Chechen Islamist separatist leader Shamil Basayev, Jordanian-born Al-Qaeda militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and the Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, also of Chechen descent.

    In a nutshell, Kobrin said all appear to have had relationship issues with their mothers that stemmed from being infants in what anthropologists describe as "shame-honor cultures."..."

    I think in his case its relationship with his brother more so than with his mother that lead to this.
    Brother seemed to have been the apple of his parents eyes. So the younger brother presumably learned to listen to his older brother. The idea of bombing presumably also came from the brother, who wasn't satisfied with how his life turned out to be in US.

    Alcatraz of the Rockies: Colorado prison houses nation's worst offenders (with clip)

    "FLORENCE, Colo. - Days pass without change.

    Corridors repeat without differentiation.

    Silence reigns; except, of course, when one offender can't handle the monotony.

    It's a dichotomy, really: 400-plus men -- lives marked by their evil filth -- locked within the same sterile walls.

    Act up, and your precious little privileges are taken away.

    Welcome to the nation's only Federal Administrative Maximum prison: Supermax ADX Florence. ...

    The Supermax's Who's Who includes Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, 911 Conspirator Zaccharias Moussaoui, Shoe Bomber Richard Reid, Oklahoma City Bombing Conspirator Terry Nichols, and FBI spy Robert Hanssen.

    Those in solitary confinement sit in their seven-by-12-foot cell of poured concrete for 23 hours a day. A concrete stool, ledges for a TV and a bed line the perimeter. Food is passed to an inmate through a slot. A four-inch-wide window to the outside angles upward to the sky -- any view of the prairie or mountainscape cannot be seen. The lights are never turned off, and a camera watches their every move. One hour of solitary, scheduled exercise time outside of the cell is allowed....

    To this day, no one has escaped from Supermax."

    Great article YES or NO- thank you for posting.
    I wonder how we could extrapolate this info to help us understand all the American
    school shooters. ??
    Dysfunctional homes? yes for sure. Violence in home, for sure. Attachment problems
    with mother?
    I'd really like that same author to tie this in to US student shooters. This is what we
    need to see and share to curb this growing problem.

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev lawyers seek to unseal interview with brother's associate

    July 05, 2018

    "Appellate lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are fighting to get their hands on sealed interviews with Ibragim Todashev, a Chechen national who was fatally shot by an FBI agent after allegedly confessing that he and Tsarnaev's late brother Tamerlan were behind an unsolved triple murder in Waltham.

    The attorneys, whose argument for sparing Tsarnaev's life is due next month before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Boston, filed a motion with the court late Tuesday asking that the reasons for their request be sealed, as well....

    Authorities said Tsarnaev and his younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may have been responsible for the triple homicide, that forensic evidence connected them to the scene of the killings, and that their cell phone records placed them in the area. While police in the first investigation said that victims were killed on September 12, The Boston Globe, Boston Herald, and The Wall Street Journal reported that at least one relative of the victims believes that the killings took place on September 11...."

    ---

    2011 Waltham triple murder

    "A triple homicide was committed in Waltham, Massachusetts in the United States, on the evening of September 11, 2011.[2][3] Brendan Mess, Erik Weissman, and Raphael Teken were murdered in Mess's apartment. All had their throats slit from ear to ear, with such great force that they were nearly decapitated. Thousands of dollars' worth of marijuana and money were left covering their mutilated bodies; in all $5,000 was left in the apartment. The local district attorney said that it appeared that the killer and the victims knew each other, and that the murders were not random.

    ....Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the deceased suspect in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, had previously described murder victim Brendan Mess as his best friend, though before Mess was murdered there had been animosity between Tsarnaev and Mess over Mess's "lifestyle". After the bombings and subsequent revelations of Tsarnaev's personal life, the Waltham murders case was reexamined in April 2013 with Tsarnaev as a new suspect..."

    Tsarnaev lawyers seek to unseal jury questionnaires
    Legal team to argue convicted terrorist doomed from start

    "The persuasions, prejudices and private lives of 1,355 Bay State residents rejected from sitting in judgment of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in 2015 could soon be public when his appellate team argues the young terrorist’s jury pool was so poisoned it doomed him to be sentenced to death.

    Tsarnaev defender David Patton on Monday filed a motion with U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole Jr. asking that completed screening questionnaires of every woman and man not seated as one of 12 jurors or six alternates be partially unsealed after more than three years under lock and key. Patton, whose direct appeal brief on Tsarnaev’s behalf is due next month, is agreeing up front to redact the prospective jurors’ names, occupations and addresses, as well as relatives’ names and any medical issues that may have impacted their ability to serve.

    The questionnaires filled out by the 10 women and eight men who were seated as jurors and alternates for the blockbuster trial would be unsealed as well, “with some redactions,” per agreement with federal prosecutors, Patton’s motion states...."

    Judge urged to keep Tsarnaev juror forms sealed

    August 06, 2018

    "The federal judge who sentenced Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death in 2015 is being urged by prosecutors not to unseal 1,355 sealed questionnaires completed by prospective jurors not chosen to hear the case, arguing the release could lead to “embarrassment or harassment.”

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Nadine Pellegrini told U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole Jr. in a filing last week that among the 100 questions put to jurors were whether the federal government “allows too many Muslims, or too many people from Muslim countries, to immigrate legally to the United States,” and whether the war on terror “is overblown or exaggerated.”

    Attorney David Patton, in preparing the appeal to overturn Tsarnaev’s death sentence, is agreeable to redacting jurors’ personal identifiers, but told O’Toole in his motion to obtain the voluminous documents that he needs to know “the percentage of all venirepersons (potential jurors appearing for jury selection) who knew about the case, and the percentage who believed, based on pretrial publicity, that Mr. Tsarnaev was guilty or should receive the death penalty.”...

    Tsarnaev turned 25 last month at the Supermax prison in Colorado. His opening brief is due no later than Nov. 19 before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in South Boston."

    Judge dismisses claims by parents of man killed by cops during Boston Marathon bombing questioning

    September 06, 2018

    "A federal judge in Florida dismissed wrongful-death claims brought against two Massachusetts troopers by the parents of Ibragim Todashev, a Chechen national shot to death in Orlando by an FBI agent during questioning about the Boston Marathon bombings and after allegedly confessing his role in a gruesome triple murder in Waltham.

    In addition to dropping the suit against state police Sgt. Curtis Cinelli and Trooper Joel Gagne, U.S. District Court Judge Carlos E. Mendoza ruled their co-defendant, FBI Special Agent Aaron McFarlane, was lawfully protecting himself and Cinelli when Todashev allegedly charged them in his apartment on May 22, 2013, with a 5-foot pole. Gagne had stepped outside to make a call to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office. McFarlane, who’d also been hit in the head with a table, “was not required to wait and see what Todashev might do next,” Mendoza concluded in his 26-page decision....

    Todashev, 27, was friends with Tamerlan Tsarnaev...

    Mendoza noted in his decision that state police believed Tamerlan Tsarnaev may have committed the Sept. 11, 2011, near-decapitations of Raphael Teken, 37, Erik Weissman, 31, and Brendan Mess, 25. Todashev, he said, “acknowledged his involvement in the Waltham murders and agreed to write a statement.”..."

    High school friend of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev says his classmate’s crimes ‘haunt’ him

    "Youssef Eddafali says he first met Dzhokhar “Jahar” Tsarnaev in seventh grade, but it wasn’t until the classmates met again in high school that they really became friends.

    In an essay for Boston Globe Magazine, Eddafali explains how as a teen he bonded with Tsarnaev, who was a year ahead of him at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, over the stresses of balancing their home lives in Muslim households with their “American lives.”..."
