Posted on 04/19/2013 6:41:53 AM PDT by Mrs. Frogjerk
Police have identified Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, as the "black hat" bombing suspect, killed during the manhunt that followed. Readers have pointed out that Johannes Hirn made Tsarnaev the subject of a photo essay, "Will Box for Passport," taken before the boxer competed at National Golden Gloves competition in Salt Lake City. The captions give us a micro-profile of the suspect.
Tamerlan, who studies at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston and wants to become an engineer, took the semester off from school to train for the competition.
Tamerlan fled Chechnya with his family because of the conflict in the early 90s, and lived for years in Kazakhstan before getting to the United States as a refugee.
Originally from Chechnya, but living in the United States since five years, Tamerlan says: "I don't have a single American friend, I don't understand them."
If he wins enough fights... Tamerlan says he could be selected for the US Olympic team and be naturalized American. Unless his native Chechnya becomes independent, Tamerlan says he would rather compete for the United States than for Russia.
Tamerlan says he doesn't drink or smoke anymore: "God said no alcohol." A muslim, he says: "There are no values anymore," and worries that "people can't control themselves."

aww he no hab no widdo fwiends.........
He’ll have at least one American friend where he is now.
Hope he says hello to dead Ted for us.
...bitterly clinging to his koran and bombs with antipathy toward all who are not like him....
Get to work! -joking
Link doesn’t work for me
They're trying to make him out to be a Conservative.
Why don’t these weirdos stay in their Muslim holes instead of coming to mooch off this country?
Found it! Maybe an iPad problem?
If you go to the article, it states that he has the book “How to win friends and Influence People” is on his wishlist. I wonder if that’s a joke.
I can’t seem to access the article from my original post for some reason.
He is obviously talking about Congress and the President. Any elected official for the most part.
Any wonder the Boston Marathon bomber (above) blended in so well in Boston?
Society is to blame!
Americans didn’t welcome him!
An Islamist with a Che T-Shirt, this guy won the “Daily Double.”
Wonder what his DUmmie name was?
Huh? What is this guy and he is not on the suspect list?
Did Barry cry for the people killed during the marathon? Don’t think so. To think that we are stuck with him for another 4 years makes me ill!
oh cruel world waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
That picture needs to go viral!!!
Over at DU half of them are ticked off it’s a muslim, and the other half are trying to equivalent him with Christians.
The guy seems to be part of the black flag muzzie crowd, who believe in the final war in Israel and the last imam. So according to DU he must be just like Christians who believe last day prophecies in the bible. Those evil fundies!
That’s not him.
No way he can escape with that honker
Yep. The none too subtle coloring of his portrait is already underway.
Would Tamerlan be named after Tamerlane? Wasn’t that a warrior from the interior of Asia?
The DU crowd were hoping for a Tea Party guy. yeah, as if!
I’m not surprised that DUmmies are contorting all logic to equate the bombers beliefs to Christian beliefs. They are pathetic!
Hmmm. He could be named after him. Here’s a link to some info regarding Timur A.K.A. Tamerlane the conqueror if anybody is interested: http://asianhistory.about.com/od/profilesofasianleaders/p/TimurProf.htm
How can it be that he wasn’t a radical evangelical Christian who went to Tea Party rallies and was a life member of the NRA? I bet Chrissie Mathews is crying in his craft beer.
He was indeed. I just read on Wikipedia to read about him. He was a Moslem warlord who had conquered much of Central Asia, trying to make it the caliphate. He conquered in a manner akin to Jenghis Khan.
What his ‘profession’ is, where he worked, where his income/money from,
If he and his brother turned out to be sucking on gubmint teats, I (and millions of Americans) would be furious.
A radical Muslim with a communist terrorist Che T-shirt. I’m shocked, just shocked.
They're twisting themselves into knots claiming that Freepers are more concerned about "brown" people than terrorists. They seriously believe because these two killers are "white", that we want to call all Islamists "brown" instead of white. Don't ask me to try and explain their "logic." Logic doesn't exist inside that lunatic asylum.
Have the DUmmies tried to explain away the Che T-Shirt, that has to hit awfully close to home for them.
Smile, be pleasant, be friendly, discuss current events. If people don't respond - KILL THEM!
I know exactly what you mean! We’ll have to wait and see but his younger bro sounds like he was a professional student. People like that are always living off of the teat! I bet his education was being payed for by us! I’m getting angrier as I type this. We pay for their educations and get rewarded with bloodshed and hatred towards us.
“Unlike his predecessors Timur(Tamerlane) was also a devout Muslim who referred to himself as the Sword of Islam, converting nearly all the Borjiginleaders to Islam during his lifetime.”
His DU name was probably something cryptic like Muhammed, or Akbar.
An 8 year old boy was blown to bits, 2 other people are dead and countless people have been maimed by these two vermin and that is what the DUmmies are talking about. They make me ill!
Isn’t this a photo of a missing person in Rhode Island, Sunil Tripathi?
Very interesting. Sounds like Timur would have been a hero to the bomber. I wonder if his daddy had that in mind when he gave him that name.
That is NOT him. That is a not one of the Chechens. That is the missing Brown U student, who is still missing, and apparently not a muslim terrorist.
College Kids Gone Wild again! This may have been the kickoff to their “American Spring”.
Keep doing that sh*at and you never will have any.
You are correct that he is not the actual bomber identified by the FBI, but it remains possible that he is connected.
