    Police on door to door search in Watertown, MA.

    Okay, the one who died, Tamerlan, was apparently an avid boxer. This is an interview with him from a source I'm assuming is called "Passport".

    Here are some quotes:

    Tamerlan says he doesn't usually take his shirt off so girls don't get bad ideas: "I'm very religious."
    Tamerlan fled Chechnya with his family because of the conflict in the early 90s, and lived for years in Kazakhstan before getting to the United States as a refugee.
    Originally from Chechnya, but living in the United States since five years, Tamerlan says: "I don't have a single American friend, I don't understand them."
    Tamerlan says he doesn't drink or smoke anymore: "God said no alcohol." A muslim, he says: "There are no values anymore," and worries that "people can't control themselves."

    Original source: http://johanneshirn.photoshelter.com...000VQW7v6xWA7o (highlight photos to get quotes from Tamerlan)

    It was originally found by Reddit, but they're getting attacked right now so I'm trying not to send them any more hits.

    I don't understand why they would try to inflict mass casualties at the marathon, but apparently leave all the civilians they encounter unharmed (7-11 employees, car jacking victim, etc.).

    Not so easy to kill when you're face to face with someone?

    Had the guy who owned the Mercedes not called 911 to report the carjacking, they would have stood a much greater chance of disappearing.

    I don't understand that either, it seems pretty impulsive to me. It doesn't quite pass the smell test. I tend to think there may be more players here then we know. Maybe in order to secure the identities of the other players maybe this might be diversionary play utilizing otherwise used up assets. Or could be they got spooked at their safe house and decided to bolt. Or maybe a little of both. Its hard to say till we get more info. Most of what I am throwing out at this point is pure speculation.

    Now they're saying on TV that white hat suspect escaped in a car and ran over his own brother in the escape. This just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

    Putin offering help a couple days back is starting to make a hell of a lot of sense.

From what I understand it was a hellhole there while under control of the chechens.

    It's a mindset most don't understand. They were/are trained killers. thru and thru. the fact as kids, they were raised in Chechnya.. you got stone cold killers.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
