Boston bombings: Pro-Tsarnaev posters come up in Chechnya

May 5 2013, 9:20pm CDT | by

London, May 6 (IANS) Posters expressing support for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the second man charged with last month's bombings at the Boston Marathon, have been put up on walls in Chechnya's capital Grozny, BBC reported.

London, May 6 — Posters expressing support for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the second man charged with last month's bombings at the Boston Marathon, have been put up on walls in Chechnya's capital Grozny, BBC reported.

It was not clear who is behind the posters declaring Dzhokhar Tsarnaev "not guilty".

They show pictures of Tsarnaev and his mother Zubeidat, and include an appeal for online donations.

The Tsarnaev family are ethnic Chechens but have lived mostly outside Chechnya.

Residents of Grozny say the posters most likely came from someone trying to make money out of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Dzhokhar's elder brother Tamerlan -- a fellow suspect -- was killed during a clash with police three days after the April 15 bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 200.

Reports say the Tsarnaevs lived for years in Kyrgyzstan - in Central Asia - and Dagestan, another Russian republic in the North Caucasus which borders Chechnya.

Pro-Tsarnaev leaflets have also appeared in Kyrgyz capital Bishkek, BBC cited Russia's Interfax news agency as saying.

Police are trying to find out who stuck them on the walls of underpasses in the city centre.

The posters in Grozny follow an earlier campaign there in support of the Tsarnaevs. The authorities removed the earlier ones, which appeared April 24.

The latest posters in Grozny say: "This is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a 19-year-old lad accused of a terrorist attack in Boston. But as many people now know, that is a groundless accusation, there is absolutely no evidence against him."

"Now he is in a serious condition, in a prison hospital, he needs medical and legal help. Dzhokhar's parents ask you for help, to collect money for their son, whom they cannot lose, as they have already lost the older son, cruelly, unjustly. We will be grateful for any help, in the name of the Almighty do not remain indifferent."

The message includes a number for the Russian online payment system, Qiwi Wallet, and the Tsarnaev family address in the social network, VKontakte, BBC said.

Massachusetts Chooses a Governor: Implications for Us All

Jul 28 2014 8:07am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Fittingly, Beacon Hill is a neighborhood in Boston, and often used as a metonym for state government. Massachusetts has indeed served as a national beacon, most indelibly during the American Revolution -- but also of late, as the first state to implement a very close approximation to universal health coverage (notably, during the tenure of Republican Governor, Mitt Romney). All evidence to date suggests that the refo ...

MA Police Chiefs Want 'Sole Discretion' to Decide Who May Own a Long Gun

Jul 25 2014 8:14am CDT | Source: Big Government

Massachusetts police chiefs are unhappy with state lawmakers for dropping a provision that would have given them "sole discretion" in deciding who can own a long gun, be it a shotgun or a rifle. On July 18, Breitbart News reported that although the state Senate passed new gun control, they first struck down the provision that police chiefs were eager to see passed.  According to Fox News, Massachusetts police chiefs already get the final say on who can or can't hav ...

Boston Top Cop: City Residents Do Not 'Need' to Own Shotguns, Rifles

On July 23, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans told Boston Public Radio (WGBH) that residents of Boston do not need shotguns or rifles.  He said these things in response to Massachusetts state senator Stan Rosenberg's (D) position that there are already "sufficient controls" on long guns at the federal level and, therefore, no need for new state laws giving police additional powers to deny ownership to citizens. According to WGBH, Evan ...
