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."

...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?
