Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who admitted to FBI agents that he and his dead brother Tamerlan carried out the deadly bombings, has a Twitter account.
The 19-year-old, who remains hospitalized for wounds suffered in a shootout with police, also admitted that he and his brother killed an MIT campus policeman last week. The surviving suspect made his statements at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. His health is apparently improving – the hospital listed his condition as fair.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, also known as “Jahar” for short, as his friends and the people who knew him would so often address him, last posted on his Twitter on 17th April 2013 – only two days after the Boston Marathon bombings. In the posting, he said, “I’m a stress free kinda guy” which is eerie considering what he had done just two days before with his dead brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev:
As a matter of fact, the immediate day after the Boston Marathon bombings, he tweeted, “Ain’t no love in the heart of the city, stay safe people”. Gives you the chills, doesn’t it?
Was he tweeting while he was on the run? While the entire US were in a frenzy trying to track them down? While the FBI released multiple CCTV captures of them? While videos of them at the bombing scene in Boston circulated in, out, and around the interwebs like crazy? While the entire town was on lockdown? What was he thinking?
Note: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was formally charged with using weapons of mass destruction against people in detonating two bombs on 15th April near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people (including one eight-year-old boy) and injured more than 260 others.
