Q:Thanks for the info about the photos! You are awesome!!
Q:How were you able to find out at what time the Twomey photo was taken?
I looked for the metadata of the photo. Metadata gives you information about the photo such as model of the camera, lens, exposure, if flash was used, date (original and modified), size, software used etc.
You can check it online in these two sites. I used the last one.
Here’s the info I obtained:
The photo, photo by Aedeen Twomey, is credited with helping to eventually identify Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. He had just set down his bag, which exploded minutes later.
This is not in front of the Forum restaurant. This is where he was when this pic was taken.
HQ photo here
It was taken on April 15, 2013 at 2:43:29 pm. The first bomb went off at 2:49:43 pm, the second one at 2:49:57 pm. This photo was taken ~6 minutes before the bombings.
This is one of the photos sent to the FBI in their search for the Marathon bomber in April 2013. The photo, photo by Aedeen Twomey, is credited with helping to eventually identify Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. He had just set down his bag, which exploded minutes later.
Where’s Wally? Lol.
Q:What is the official story? Did Jahar run over Tamerlan or did the police kill him because I have heard both version being reported equal number of times?
The official story from the beginning was that Jahar ran over Tamerlan.
People started to speculate that Jahar didn’t do it because of what the doctor who attended Tamerlan said. The source of the following quote is the Boston Herald. Unfortunately, the article has been archieved and I can’t read it but thanks to the work of someone I have that quote saved.
" “Our thought was … there had been a blast injury with shrapnel,” Wolfe said. When asked about reports that Tsarnaev was run over by a vehicle driven by his fleeing brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Wolfe said he did not see any obvious injuries that would back up that theory. “I certainly did not see any tire marks or the usual things we see with someone run over by a car,” he said.”
Nevertheless, the certificate of death says:
"Describe how injured occured: Shot by police and then run over and dragged by motor vehicle”.
He probably died because of both things, he was shot multiple times and on top of that he was ran over so I guess that contributed in some way into his death. As you can read in the certificate, it says:
"Immediate cause: Gunshot wounds of torso and extremities"
I hope I answered properly.
Wait, so before the 18th?
Yeah, I saw this too. I also got this anon claiming they were in Cambridge on the 17th. hmmm
edit: I’m not in LE and someone correct me if I’m wrong, but even if the FBI were all over Cambridge chasing leads, investigating students at MIT etc… wouldn’t MIT PD be on high alert? Henninger specifically stated that they were not on high alert because of the large fed presence. That just doesn’t make sense to me.
The FBI is pushing back hard against allegations aired Friday on WBUR that the bureau had identified the bombing suspects well before the time authorities have publicly claimed.
Clarence Henniger, the MIT patrol supervisor who first found the bullet-riddled body of slain MIT officer Sean Collier, told researchers who are constructing an oral history of the bombing at Northeastern University that the FBI knew who the Tsarnaevs were and that agents were conducting surveillance on their home in Cambridge around the time that Collier was shot—in stark contradiction to the FBI’s claim that they did not know the bomber’s identities until fingerprinting Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s corpse at the hospital hours later. WBUR included Henniger’s comments as part of a story about the manhunt, and the blog privacysos.org first noted the contradiction four days later.
In response, Special-Agent-In-Charge of the Boston office, Kieran Ramsey, told Boston that Henniger is “absolutely uninformed” and that his claims are “patently false. We did not know the identities of the Tsarnaev brothers until after [Tamerlan] was fingerprinted.”
Henniger, a 39-year veteran of MIT’s police force, gave fuel to conspiracy theorists and bloggers when he told Northeastern University that “The word was out regarding the suspects. We knew that his house was under surveillance, and the feds were all over the city of Cambridge.” However, when contacted by Boston, Henniger admitted that his information is not based in fact. “We were just assuming,” Henniger said. “We had an idea that they had already put it together who they were.”
Henniger, however, was correct that FBI agents were swarming around Cambridge at the time Collier was killed. Ramsey, who was the on-scene commander in Cambridge that day, confirmed that agents “were following up on leads far and wide which included following up on leads on the MIT campus. Everywhere we could, where we had a lead, we would follow-up immediately.” Though he would not give specifics, Ramsey added that the leads his agents were tracking were connected to the bombings but not to the Tsarnaevs.
Late afternoon on the Thursday after the bombings, FBI and police officials released photos of the suspects, at the time known only as “Suspect 1” and “Suspect 2,” and asked for the public’s help in identifying them. Hours later, chaos erupted. Those of us in Boston are all too familiar with what happened next: The two brothers allegedly shot Collier to death before hijacking a car and throwing homemade grenades at police in a Watertown shootout.
This is not the first time the FBI denied knowing who the Tsarnaevs were before Collier was shot. Last October, Republican Senator from Iowa Charles Grassley asked the FBI in a public letter why there was increased FBI activity in the Cambridge area before Collier was killed. “Was the surveillance being conducted in Cambridge on either of the Tsarnaev brothers, their associates, or people later confirmed to be their acquaintances?” asked Grassley. In response, the FBI issued a statement saying, “No one was surveilling the Tsarnaevs and they were not identified until after the shootout. Any claims to the contrary are false.”
Despite the FBI’s strong assertions, Henniger stands by his story and says he still has lingering doubts about what the feds knew and when. “We still have questions,” he says, “and to some degree I’m sure [the FBI] knew.”
To that, says Ramsey, “That MIT officer could not be more wrong.”
This is getting interesting…
"Henniger, a 39-year veteran of MIT’s police force, gave fuel to conspiracy theorists and bloggers"
I was waiting something like this. Mr. Henniger didn’t fuel anyone, he only told the truth and now the FBI says he was “absolutely uninformed” trying to make him look like an idiot. It’s always easier to blame conspirators or bloggers who caught all their lies and expose them on the internet than accept they all fucked it up. This is a massive cover-up, I don’t know what more people need to see it…
Q:Freeze! You’re under arrest for being so nice and cute. Copy this message to 10 other blogs that you think are beautiful and deserve it. Keep the game going and make others feel beautiful ❤ (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*
Thank you! Same for you :D
If we treat everyday life as a permanent state of emergency, we render ourselves helpless and at risk.
Q:I just--please tell me yall don't believe this random person on the internet who clearly hates the Tsarnaevs and all the fangirls he has use his "tough love" on has some inside access to Jarhar and that his defense team somehow didn't notice this fool wants to burn the kid alive and somehow is still letting him in on inside convos!?! please tell me you don't actually believe this bullshit because WTF you guys, seriously.
How do we know he doesn’t have inside information, though? I mean, I’m not taking anything he says at face value because at the end of the day he’s just another anonymous person on the Internet, but regardless, I am willing to listen to what he has to say. He was apparently at the arraignment (and potentially at other court dates as well, I’m not sure), so I’m not just going to automatically discredit the potentially valuable input he may have to offer just because I don’t agree with his stance a lot of the time.
I had to take a look about what this anon is talking about. I read him a few times before but I missed this, so I checked.
"and this is from inside convos with him"
I thought only his defense team and some other especialists have access to him so: who is this man? As you said, he is just another anonymous person on the internet but that kind of comments are a big red flag to me. Of course, he can say whatever he wants as everyone here but…sometimes I am just wtf, wtf! haha. Sorry.
