FBI Changes Story About Shooting Boston Bomber Friend

Remember the crazy story of the guy pulling a knife in the midst of several armed men while about to sign a confession to a triple homicide? Yeah, well the director of that script sent it for a rewrite:

Initially, FBI officials said Todashev, 27, became violent and lunged at an agent with a knife while he was being questioned about Tsarnaev and an unsolved 2011 triple murder in the Boston suburb of Waltham. The agent, acting on an "imminent threat," then shot Todashev, they said.

"no longer clear what happened"


And, hey, I remember you from back then. Why isn't your comment purple like the rest of ours?

ETA: by some coincidence, everyone on this thread are 5+ year DP'ers. It seems the cut-off for purple is 5.5 yrs.

I never noticed that about the colors

Yeah I was a long time reader/lurker before I actually registered here, so I guess I missed out on purple.

I had my lurking period, too

I get prideful over my long-registered status, then greedy that I didn't register sooner and get a longer one. Silly emotions.

Defend Liberty!
