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.

LYNN, Mass. — America’s top drug control official had a confession. Michael Botticelli was seated on a tattered purple couch in an old Victorian here, just outside of Boston. Above his head was a photo of Al Pacino as a drug kingpin in “Scarface,” and gathered around was a group of addicts who live together in the house for help and support. On one door hangs a black mailbox labeled “urine,” where residents must drop samples for drug tests. Botticelli is listeni ...

Mocking feminists

Aug 22 2014 6:16pm CDT | Source: WND

Over the past couple of months I’ve been collecting articles on feminist goals, tactics and behaviors that are, to put it charitably, hilarious. In fact, they’re worthy of mockery. And make no mistake, feminists hate being mocked. Want an example? If you don’t already know, look up the origin of the term “Feminazi.” There’s a guy with a Ph.D. in mockery. Drives the little ladies nuts. The latest example of the utter silliness of modern-da ...
