Boston Police: 3 more suspects taken into custody in Boston Marathon Bombing


Details to follow.

Via NY Times, 3 Charged With Hindering Inquiry Into Boston Attack:

Two onetime classmates of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, were charged on Wednesday with conspiring to obstruct justice and destroy evidence for throwing away a laptop computer and a backpack containing fireworks belonging to Mr. Tsarnaev.

The men, Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazhayakov, 19, both citizens of Kazakhstan in the United States on student visas, are scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon, the Justice Department said.

A third man, Robel Phillipos, 19, of Cambridge, Mass., was charged with lying to federal law enforcement officials during an investigation of the bombing, according to a criminal complaint charging the men.

Whoopee. Let’s start a pool on how fast Eric Holder can get someone there to release them.

    Let’s start a pool on the total amount of tax-payer funded benefits this whole group got over the past, oh let’s say, 5-years!

    I’ll say $345K.

      Did you listen to Howie Carr today?
      – food stamps
      – EBT cash cards
      – Section 8 housing
      – free tuition
      – Pell grants
      – fuel assistance

      I sure wish we could withhold taxes until the gubmint fixes this mess.

If they are Christian, Americans, white he will leave them there to rot.

Oh quelle surprise. Two non-citizens are obstructing justice and making false statements? That’s another way of saying that they were accomplices. We now have the fun of figuring out where they were in the org chart for the boom team.

What I want to know is this: why didn’t the brothers have a better escape plan? They clearly planned the bombing itself rather meticulously. One would think that a team with that level of competence would also have planned a careful escape, particularly if the next stop was (supposedly) New York. So who were the helpers, etc. These three might be part of that, but there has to be more, unless the Tsarnaev brothers were meant to be caught.

    I agree. And they really had no idea that downtown Boston has lots of street cameras, and that with all the videos and photos being taken of the marathon, they were very likely to be caught on camera.

    But that still only tells us that they were either stupid and working alone, or stupid and being used by someone who isn’t.

The cynic in me wonders if any of their professors might be offering extra credit for their actions in protecting him….After all, they are fighting against all the usual “justices”. And there have to be academics that are younger (or not so young) Weather Underground wannabes, wanting to take the Imperialists down as many notches as possible.

Have they only been implicated after the fact?

    PhillyGuy in reply to David Gerstman. | May 1, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    That’s my understanding too David. It appears they were asked to remove some items and they did. Two of them also were here on expired visas.

So 2/3 of those just arrested were illegal aliens that Obama and his pals in the Gang of 8 are pushing to turn into US citizens

Amazing how many friendless, alienated young lone wolves are running around in the Cambridge, MA area of the country.

I’m sure not even the tip of the iceberg has been released. I hope the brain-dead, low info dumbocrats are moved to finally make meaningful changes to welfare.

How dumb can these people be? Hey, I just made myself one of the two most hunted men in America. Want to risk helping me? If there is not more to this story, these guys are so dumb they probably couldn’t find their ass with both hands.

I read the complaint.

These two Russian national recognized “Jahar” as a bomber from video on TV — before anyone knew, hours before the MIT cop was killed. They did not call the police. Instead, they went to Jahar’s dorm room, found a backpack with fireworks – emptied of black powder. That synched it — they knew he was the bomber, but they continued to say nothing. They took the backpack, and after Jahar was arrested they threw it out. FBI — miraculously – recovered the backback, in tact, from a landfill dump. Jahar, per the complaint, also causually told his friends over lunch a month ago that he knew how to make a bomb.

These Russian students told know one. The MIT cop’s blood is on their hands. They are charged with obstruction of justice. Hope they get a big sentence.

    George – you are geographically challenged.

    Kazakhstan is not Russia.

      My apologies, Russian speakers who are nationals of Kazakhstan.

      (I now know (once again) why you are banned from the guardian….something about being an __ ___)

        Russian speakers is not what you posted. ‘Those two Russsian national recognised…….’

        And again ‘These Russian students’ …

        The 3rd guy might not speak any Russian at all.

        Where does a Robel Phillipos fit in to your theory?

        Even Borat would be upset with him being called a Kazakh. Nice teeth though .

Collectivist haters who were hoping for TEA party white men hardest hit…

Are we still not calling it an act of terrorism by an Islamic terrorist cell?!

abenson229 | May 2, 2013 at 9:22 am

The Boston Police are lying. I know this because Barack Obama’s minions have told me that Speed Bump and Flashbang were self-radicalized, lone wolf operators. Therefore there isn’t anyone left to arrest.
