Watertown & MA State Police Told ABC 2 Weeks Ago There Were No Writings In Boat-Now They Are Afraid To Talk

Spokespeople for the Massachusetts State Police and the Watertown police had denied the existence of the writings when first asked about them by ABC News two weeks ago.

Today, both departments referred reporters to the FBI. A federal law enforcement official confirmed reports first broadcast by CBS News that writings had been discovered inside the boat.

The discovery of writings intensified tensions between the FBI and local police when FBI agents believed some Boston officers and state police had taken cell phone pictures of the writing.

Agents demanded the phones of all officers at the scene the night of the capture of Dzhokhar be confiscated to avoid the photos becoming public before being used as evidence at trial, according to two law enforcement officials.

A FBI spokesperson said agents cannot confiscate phones without a warrant and officials said none of the police approached would agree to turn over their phones to the FBI.

Oh Em Gee! My post turned into the Jerry Springer show.

Not much discussion on the topic.

So when local police refuse to turn over their

cell phones to the FBI it's okay because they didn't have a warrant, but when private citizens while filming a police action refuse to turn over their cell phones to the local police it's hindering a police investigation?

Yeah, and

How is my keeping my property hindering them from investigating? They are abusing authority and lying at the same time.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Actually I thought the story

Actually I thought the story was kind of fishy until I read this article. If the FBI was the only ones to inspect the boat and see the writing I would've been more apt to buy that it was a lie. But if state and local police took pictures and they do end up attesting to the writing with pictures they took, that will be hard to argue against imo.

Another thing in that story, this statement supports the "taint the jury" theory of why we haven't seen the video of them leaving the bombs or the video of the MIT cop killing.

"Agents demanded the phones of all officers at the scene the night of the capture of Dzhokhar be confiscated to avoid the photos becoming public before being used as evidence at trial, according to two law enforcement officials."

just sayin

They said there were no writings 2 weeks ago.

Watertown Cops AND MA State police. And FBI always confiscate photos and they took their phones on the night of capture so they can present what they want.

FBI were not the only ones who did forensics. Here is MA State police doing forensics on the boat. See their uniforms? See the one in the trooper hat?

They couldn't see it two weeks ago.

Until they looked under Mohammed Atta's passport and there it was! Right next to Saddam Hussein's secret stash of nerve gas!

Yes I know, didn't you read

Yes I know, didn't you read what I commented. I read the story but you apparently didn't. They refused to give their phones up.

"A FBI spokesperson said agents cannot confiscate phones without a warrant and officials said none of the police approached would agree to turn over their phones to the FBI."

And they apparently DID leak the information, which is why we are hearing about it now, because they say it was a Massachusetts official that told them and showed them a picture.

"A Massachusetts official showed ABC News what he said was a cell phone picture of the phrase "Praise Allah," written in black ink, with a bullet hole above it, believed to have been written by Dzhokhar as he hid inside the boat in Watertown, Mass.

I don't think they leaked it.

I think it was fabricated. FBI is being questioned more and more everyday about this Boston fiasco.

Even on tonight's CNN Erin Burnett show, SHE was doubting the story.

This story is being laughed at all over. Even from people who are dead sure he did it, they are finding it hard to believe he wrote his manifesto with his Sharpie while laying in there bleeding and in pain.

There was no backpack found in the boat. No gun, but he carries his trusty Sharpie everywhere he goes?

Funny how they all of a sudden come out with this story 3 or 4 days after a few newspapers started questioning the details of his "confession" and the boy's lucidity while he was under the influence of pain meds and morphine.

FBI is trying to cover their butts. This isn't the first story that has changed during all of this when people start asking too many good questions.

Ok well you've changed your

Ok well you've changed your story and read some of the article now huh. Anyone can doubt the story all they want, but that doesn't mean it's a lie. I don't know either way and neither do you. I said I thought it fishy when I heard about it myself, but if state and local police confirm the story and have pictures on their phones to back it up, that will be hard to argue against imo. Equally if the Mass state police that were there end up saying they know nothing of this writing, it will be hard to argue that it isn't a lie. You can say they changed their story and it wasn't leaked but it says in the article they didn't want it to be known until the trial, which is why they wanted the officers phones. So it's not a stretch to think they also told the Mass state police to keep hush on the writing two weeks ago. And it was a spokeperson for the Mass state police that denied the existence of the writing, not the officers involved.
Also what newspapers questioned "the details of his "confession" and the boy's lucidity while he was under the influence of pain meds and morphine"? Like I hinted to Ralph, I think it's a little absurd to think an article on the Cleveland Challenger website put pressure on the FBI to come out with another story. Maybe I'm wrong and other more prominent papers/sites questioned the same thing, but I haven't seen it.

No such thing happened, Mr. Bengal

I read the article. I was spot on in all my comments.
You say I changed my mind and read some of the article. I did not change my mind and read the article before I commented.
You dear sir, are using a common tactic controlling men do when arguing with a female.
It's not gonna work with me.
Lay off the booze at night when you get near a keyboard.

In your first comment, you

In your first comment, you believed they took the Massachusetts officers phones because you said this:
"And FBI always confiscate photos and they took their phones on the night of capture so they can present what they want."
That wasn't spot on and showed me you didn't read the article very well.

Then you say that you think the story is fabricated and not leaked, and infer the Mass police maintain there were no writings, the FBI just needed to make it up because "a few newspapers started questioning the details of his confession". But the article says it was the Massachusetts police officers who have given them the information, not the FBI.
"As police searched for him, and as he lay bleeding in his boat hideout, Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev wrote "F*** America" on the side panel of the boat, police in Massachusetts told ABC News.

Officers said they also discovered the phrase "Praise Allah" on the boat's side panels and several anti-American screeds, including references to Iraq, Afghanistan and "the infidels."

A Massachusetts official showed ABC News what he said was a cell phone picture of the phrase "Praise Allah," written in black ink, with a bullet hole above it, believed to have been written by Dzhokhar as he hid inside the boat in Watertown, Mass.

Drop the gender bullshit, I could care less what sex you are, that's just you trying to change the subject. I'm pointing out the problems I have with your theory and critique of my comment.

I Wonder

...how the younger brother knew his older brother actually died at the earlier shooting scene? I mean...the attending physician I saw on a report plainly said he didn't die until after arriving at the hospital. How could the little brother have known this for sure?

Ralph, you're taking a risk posting a thread on this topic.

I clicked on a thread just now that has been 404'd and got this message:

"you will be banned.

You can accept that we don't want to spread the most insulting of incorrect conspiracies, or leave."

Things have really changed on this site.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Welcome To The DP I Have Been Trying To Tell You About

It's like trying to wake people up ALL OVER AGAIN! Even though we are awake here it's hard to see that the DP is being infiltrated somehow. I am being threatened with being banned from the site, Fishyculture is being gagged, lots of people that have pointed out stuff have been kicked off and so on. Jon told me that if I didn't get off this subject, I was "outta here" just a couple of hours ago. So be it! I will fight or get kicked out. Screw it! Mark my words! Please! If Skippy is gone isn't by my own accord!

skippy

By my count Mr. Nystrom

By my count Mr. Nystrom banned around 8 people while Jon has banned 1 virulently anti-semetic poster.

Of course, though, it is possible that Michael may have been co opted during the Boston Shelter in Place. I don't remember him mentioning a holiday prior to that.

On top of that he's going to meet the queen. If that doesn't make you suspicious, nothing will.

"virulently anti-semetic poster"

So now she is virulently anti-semetic and every other thread she posted was anti-semetic?

Give us a break. That's ridiculous and false.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

that's not at all what he said

I believe the reference is to the user who repeatedly said things like this.

that was a mistake on my part

I was trying to reduce the conversation on that thread to him & mods and redirect everyone else out, but appear to have mistakenly made it empty the page & put the contents of my comment to skippy there, which was not my intention at all.

So I apologize for that, & to anyone else who saw that message completely out of context.

No thanks. It sucks too. You are not following what I am trying to say. Has NOTHING TO DO with Michael's wishes. You don't care what the thread is really about, do you? EVER

I Don't Believe ANYTHING You Say Anymore

You are freaking me AND others here out. Don't tell me you are sorry, I don't buy it. You got caught in a lie, hmmmmm what does that sound like? Delete, delete, delete.
