The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Did the Boston PD lie about the “hour-long firefight” with Boston terror suspect?

It was absurd that a city of millions shutdown, and a cowardly people surrendered their basic rights and human dignity, because of the threat of one young terrorist.

Now it seems that the same thuggish Boston Police Department that ran roughshod over the rights of it’s law abiding citizens, forcing them from their homes at gun point and aiming machine guns at people who dared film their abuse, has been caught blatantly lying about the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev:

Two unnamed U.S. officials have told the Associated Press that the surviving suspect in the Boston bombings was unarmed when police captured him hiding inside a boat in a neighborhood back yard.

The report contradicts the Boston police department’s own account of Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s capture on Friday – after commissioner Ed Davies described a firefight between him and officers before the terror suspect was captured.

The New York Times also said an M4 rifle had been found on the boat – another claim contradicted by the latest revelations.

Officers had originally said they had exchanged gunfire with Tsarnaev for more than one hour Friday evening before they were able to subdue him.

But on Wednesday, the law enforcement officials told the AP that no gun was found aboard the vessel.

It now appears that the only firearm carried by either brother was the Ruger pistol used by Tamerlan and recovered with his body the previous night, along with their cache of homemade bombs.


Dzhokar Tsarnaev was unarmed as Boston cowered in fear from him, and an over-militarized and under-trained police department felt compelled to lie to cover up their heavy-handed tactics and inept weapons discipline.

    This whole thing needs a Congressional review . That won’t happen because it’s Barney Franks Congressional 4th District.

      barney might have been in the boat with the kid

    • Dave says:

      The Tsarnaev are dupes and patsies. They were used and we are witness to how a powerful state destroys human beings.

      The lies are breathtaking, the violence extraordinary and the violations of our rights unbelievable.

      We have insane people ruling us.

      • James Brenner says:

        Government has become completely corrupt and unaccountable.

        Rule of law is simply disregarded. Hang on to your self defense tools.

    • Sick of It says:

      And therein lies exactly the problem. Even people who see through the lies and don’t believe the news are impotent. “This whole thing needs a Congressional review”? Let someone else fix this problem, you mean? Politicians? It’s ‘politicians’ that do these things. Forget someone else rescuing us, cos it ain’t gonna happen. PEOPLE need to realise we are the only ones who can save ourselves. And that’s NOT by giving our power over to a corrupt few, letting the ‘authorities’ think for us, nor sitting on our @sses waiting for it all to be alright. We need to be blockading every major news channel demanding to know why they aren’t reporting things like this, we need to unite against the brown shirts posing as police. What are they gonna do? Shoot us all?

      • kyla says:

        Yes. That is it. Ppl can see the lies but will not take to the streets. We are sorry for these kids, but they are not our kids. As long as we believe that we are the greatest nation on earth, this false sense of superiority will keep us impotent. Hats off to ppl of Bahrain and others who are rising against their oppressive regimes. Our govt and hence we, for giving them power, are responsible for many crimes, both domestic and abroad.

    • TT says:

      Congressional review? lol A ‘review’ by a bunch of corrupt, lying pedophiles will solve this? Don’t think so.

  2. cmblake6 says:

    The possibilities exposed by this performance are incredible.

  3. Rob Crawford says:

    Wonder if they had the firefight with each other?

    Dear police: You are not soldiers. You do not have the training, and do not appear to be interested in getting it. Stop trying to act as if you are soldiers.

  4. buckeyen8ive says:

    Easy to do on an unarmed populace.
    I wonder if they have the balls to try
    this in a free state? Could get messy.

    • Paul says:

      Plenty of Boston residents r armed but voluntarily complied
      With martial law, not a whimper of protest, wore de, they all lined the streets to clap and cheer their masters

    Perhaps it’s just me, but does anyone else find the first photo in this post amusing, hilarious even? Yes, I know the trampling of our liberties that occurs daily is a deadly serious subject, but there’s something about that picture that screams wannabe. Maybe it’s related to the tattoo craze over the last 10+ years, where one cloaks oneself in ink to display their fearsomeness, or to make up for the lack thereof; being a poseur does not make one what they want to be, it just makes them look silly to those who know better. Having all of the garb these dudes are sporting is somehow just comical; then again, maybe I’m just getting old since I can remember a time before police forces became militarized.

    • fly says:

      Hey, let’s give credit where credit is due. Unlike the New York SWAT dude in the incident a month or so ago, at least these guys playing Army have their EoTech red dots mounted correctly.

      • Dan says:

        Yea, but what have they got “treed”. Looks like a scene from Spider Man. That may be the reason they fired over 300 rounds and did not kill anything but one scumbag and a boat. How in hell they didn’t kill by standers is a miracle.

      • Wilson McWilliams says:

        Great photo of New York’s Finest. In fairness to Officer Macho, he does have the muzzle pointed away from his face.

    • walt says:

      My thoughts exactly.
      Young,ambitious, with the allure of guns, authority and gear with easily brainwashed minds, told they are doing a service to a community by acting out fantasies of being the hero and savior, while all the time being part of the process we call forceful dictatorship that undermines all this country stands for in it’s constitutional manner.
      Comical to say the least to us older and more wise observers.

  6. Orion says:

    I cannot be understanding you correctly.

    You are saying that between both brothers – that all the weapons fire that occurred – they had ONE pistol? (And some bombs/grenades)

    Am I misunderstanding? Their only ranged weapon was a single pistol for 2 people?


  7. Cole says:

    I was listened to the tv and the BPD scanner so I could be wrong but I recall hearing numerous periods of heavy gunfire through the night. Mostly in the first two hours after the surviving jihadi ran over his brother and escaped. So the jihadi was returning gunfire and dumped the gun before hiding in the boat. Or he was found with a gun. The AP and unnamed sources isn’t a rock solid source of info. Or the BPD was firing indiscriminately into the dark of night like untrained men tend to do.

    • Chuck says:

      Your last sentence is the most likely possibility. I’m not sure if they actually teach mag dumps at the POlice academy, but it seems to be the preferred method of engagement by the boys in blue. Or in this case black, green and multicam.

  8. Shark says:

    So what are these four guys targeting? They had no eyes on the 19 yo kid during daylight hours. Whose house are they targeting sweeping or who are they assaulting? Somebody needs to beat the four rules into these idiots. I would kick them off of a hunting lease or have the RSO kick them off of any range I was attending. At least they are indexing their trigger fingers, although with P-shop, who knows.

  9. Comrade X says:

    Here’s a question for everyone;

    These terrorist’s (or at least one of them) were on welfare, what if they even used an Obama phone to detonate the bombs?

    Death before slavery!

  10. Drew says:

    Everybody repeat after me: SUSPECTS, SUSPECTS, SUSPECTS. I realize in the “post 9/11” world, like the holy inquisition, with the slightest suspicion, one is presumed guilty until proven flammable, but I seem to recall something about the presumption of innocence having some kind of traditional value to the American justice system. They haven’t even come up with a remotely coherent, plausible narrative yet, so maybe we should determine actual guilt first.

    Or should we just forget about the wrong ID’s, lies about the convenience store robbery, the lack of weapons on the boat and just assume the current story fragments are all we need to know…

  11. Bob says:

    I was listening to a scanner at the time of the boat siege.
    As far as I could tell the bomber did not fire back from the boat.
    The police talking about turning on and off the flood lights,using flash bangs and watching him under the boat cover using FLIR. He was mostly laying in the bottom of the boat bleeding out.

    • jj says:

      ^ That’s because they are too p*ssy to advance on the terrorist. Easy to dress up as Delta, so much harder to do the deed.

      Amazing how cops mag-dump every chance they get. Almost as if they don’t care about anyone’s lives but their own….So much for “To protect and serve”

  12. Cameron says:

    Thank you, I don’t know what I can say to make sense of any of this so i’ll leave it at that.

  13. Police do lie sometimes, especially when their manhunts go bad. I guess they feel the need to cover from ineptitude.

    Up in the Four Corners in the late ’90’s three men stole a water-tanker truck and were on the way to do G-d know what when stopped by a cop in Cortez, CO. One of them shot the cop dead, and in the get-away, shot several other people, though none fatally. Then they disappeared into the desert canyons.

    The FBI decided not to run the case, even though state lines were crossed. So the locals ran the show and weren’t very good at it, with many boys in blue getting dehydrated in those polyester uniforms, and getting lost, or running Rambo into the canyons instead of establishing a perimeter. They insulted the Navajo trackers, who knew that at least one man was still alive out there for a few years. The other two had been shot.

    Forensic reports show that neither could have been a suicide, but the police persist in claiming that they were. The last man left eluded police for a while, but nearly 10 years later a cowboy found the body. No way to know how he died.

    To make a long story short, the police and sheriffs departments up there weren’t ready to handle an operation with so many volunteers from all over the country, and it–and their quarry-got away from them. And so they lie or else tell the story one way so many times that they believe it went down that way. Either way, it covers for the loss of the suspects.

    Yes. They would and they did.

  20. bob klinck says:

    I have trouble conceiving how he could have participated in such a firefight while in the boat under a tarp.

  21. Goliath says:

    I don’t believe ONE SINGLE WORD uttered by this govt./media. They are KNOWN LIARS and thieves.

  22. Abbass (Steve) says:

    It isn’t really debatable, since their own video exists to show there was no firefight, just a massacre aimed at the boat and it also shows him getting out of the boat, unharmed as well as unarmed. No doubt they were dissapointed and shocked he survived the hail of bullets and flashbangs but he was behind the inboard engine block and the cops are dumber than dirt any day.
