Boston Police Caught in Lies?!Submitted by dducks on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 11:15
It now appears that there may have been some false information coming from the Boston Police Department. It seems that the confession of suspect number two was forced under duress before rights were read. As soon as court officials showed up at the hospital to give the Miranda rights to the suspect nothing else was
said written by the suspect. From the Daily Mail,
It has been revealed that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, initially confessed to authorities that he and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, carried out the attacks during 16-hours of questioning over the weekend.
Dzhokhar has been communicating with law enforcement officials by writing on a pad after suffering an injury to his throat during the frenzied manhunt for him which renders him unable to talk.
However, the moment he was read his rights on Monday - which as a citizen of the United States entitle him to the constitutional right to remain silent and seek a lawyer - he stopped communicating.
Indeed, it has been claimed that federal agents were surprised when a magistrate judge and a representative from the U.S. Attorney's office entered the hospital room and read Tsarnaev his rights, four officials and one law enforcement official said.
Accordingly, it now appears that the story told by the Boston Police Chief about the shoot-out at the boat location was fabricated as well.
Police had previously said Dzhokhar exchanged gunfire with them for more than an hour last Friday before they captured him inside a boat in a suburban Boston neighbourhood.
But yesterday, two unnamed officials said that he was unarmed when captured, raising questions about the gunfire and how he was injured.
The report contradicts the Boston police department's own account of Dzhokar Tsarnaev's capture - after commissioner Ed Davies describes a firefight between him and officers before the terror suspect was captured.
Here is a photo of the condition of the boat after incident,
Here is the interview with the Boston Police Chief,
There exists a photo of the suspect exiting the boat with no apparent wounds, but I am unable to find at this time. Then there is the photo after the suspect is subdued with a large gash in his throat,
To make matters more complicated it is now admitted that the MBTA officer who was murdered was a victim of friendly fire.
This is not the MIT officer. This MBTA officer was never thought "murdered".
