Skip to comments.Bomber 'put gun in his mouth and fired ... may NEVER be able to be quizzed'

The alleged Boston Marathon bomber may have tried to kill himself rather than surrender after he was cornered by police - but failed in his suicide attempt, it has been revealed.
A new report says Dzhokhar Tsarnaev shoved his pistol in his own mouth and pulled the trigger as SWAT officers and federal agents closed in on the boat where he was hiding in Friday night. However, instead of killing him, the bullet simply passed through his neck.
Authorities have said they cannot question him because of a throat wound. He remains in 'very serious' condition at a Boston hospital.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino revealed on Sunday that federal agents may never be able to interview Tsarnaev. Menino didn't elaborate on his comment and it is unknown whether the gunshot also caused brain damage.
The new twist in the story of Tsarnaev's dramatic capture comes as the Boston police commissioner warns that he and his brother Tamerlan were plotting more bomb attacks on the city and they were caught just in time. Authorities insisted that the pair were working alone.
CBS News correspondent John Miller reports: 'They say it appears from the wound that he might have stuck a gun in his mouth, and fired and actually just went out the back of his neck without killing him.
'That's one of the reasons he's unable to communicate, but he can understand what they're saying. And they believe there will be a point where he will be able to talk to him.'
Officials said late Friday after Tsarnaev was detained that they would use a public safety exemption to delay the suspects Miranda rights.
However, the exemption expires 48 hours after the arrest, so quick actions must be taken.

Their solution will probably be to send Mumbles Menino in to read him his Miranda rights. The Chechen won't understand a word he says and LE will be covered either way they want to go.
I don’t think he’s a citizen and this was an act of war. Screw miranda rights, send him to Guantanamo.
Withhold his pain killers until he starts typing. Problem solved.
Give him a keyboard or pen and tablet with a translator present.
Are they unsure if he wanted to die or are they unsure if he fired the shot?
Helen Keller says “Bullshit”.
That’s got to hurt like a Bstd.
You have to be a real DA to FU your own suicide.
Due to the circumstances, the 48 hours shouldn’t start until he can talk.
I agree with helen
How did his brother die?? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=MKbaYadggv0#!
The fact that he is alive but can’t talk just plays into the overall scam. All we know is carefully scrubbed and manipulated to produce the desired result. Or, maybe unicorns DO exist.
And Benghazi was because of a YouTube video. This stinks to high heaven.
Another breaking story on the case from England.
In one of the pictures I’ve seen of the younger terrorist, he seems to resemble a young Bob Dylan. Maybe that one of the reasons why the Liberals are running to support him.
He can’t be questioned but he can certainly cuss up a storm!
Boston suspect under guard with neck injury
“The neck wound apparently did not initially silence Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, who was swearing profusely in the ambulance ride after his final confrontation with the FBI, according to a source familiar with the case. The Justice Department remained quiet Saturday on whether officials had been able to question Tsarnaev, or whether they would attempt to do so before he consults an attorney.”
I remember during the gun battle a lot of firing then like 2 shots then a time space of like 2 mins or so and one final shot!
I figured that was him taking his own life at that point and was surprised when I saw him on the ground cuffed and being worked on.
I had actually walked away and My lady said they got him!
I said got who he’s dead! She said no he’s not they got him on the ground.
I think the older Brother was actually the citizen.
Come to think of it, I’m ok with him being an invalid for the remainder of his days for what he’s done.
So BPD continues to say they acted alone at the sand time FBI says there may have been 9-12 involved. At least they got their stories straight.
I’ve been wondering if he and his brother had a pact that they would not be taken alive. That would explain why he ran over his brother when he saw him being handcuffed by authorities. It would also explain his shooting himself once cornered, assuming he did, that is.
Can someone explain that video report in light of what has been reported???
At this point he’s likely on a ventilator and sedated. The I’m sure it’s true, they can’t get anything from him.
Very convenient — trying to cover up for highly misunderstood islam again.
See, hear and speak no evil when it comes to reporting on islam.
And they dare to call this country, “the home of the brave”?
Obammy hasn’t been on the tube lately. I wonder what he knew about all of this and when.
So, the other Russians who were arrested are just being held until they pay their parking tickets!?! Okey dokey.
Can’t he write things down? Try him and fry him.
If that’s Tamerlan in custody, then where is the part where he gets run over by his little bro???
or is this somebody else???
wait I thought he was just a mislead child?
This photo was from the previous night, when he took residence in the boat after eluding police. Surveillance camera image from boat owner himself. Suspect probably triggered motion detector spot light which somehow no one noticed. That’s the story anyway..
That was his stunt double!
He’d been in that boat for approx. 20 hours before the boat owner located him then called 911.
pat brosnan ON FOX NOW a ret nyc detective .....says this kid is dumb as a box of rocks ...failed 6 of 7 of his courses at college...forgot that survielence cameras exist in america so the idea is to get close to the kid find out whose close to the little loser ...tell him a sister is gonna be jailed or something....get leverage ...it’s the perfect scenario..he’s naive impressionable they can get to him....they gotta shake his tree...
Obama doesn’t want this guy talking.
IT was still daylight when the cops showed up to plink away!
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was nationalized on 9-11-2012.
If he would have done this, we would have heard it up front, and there would not have been all the miranda rights and etc, that went on. Even aclu was talking About that. Just what they have come up to close any info he is talking about. Its BS
President Obama has said sometimes it’s better to take the pain pill than to get the surgery. Especially in end of life issues.
So what’s the holdup here?
Have they heard of a thing called a pen?
Have him write.
I think the older Brother was actually the citizen.
The older brother was not a citizen but here legally and the younger brother was naturalized on 9-11-2012.
So, he shot himself in the mouth, the bullet came out the back of his neck, but he was still able to climb up and sit on the edge of the boat and could still cuss profusely in the ambulance. But he can’t be questioned because he can’t talk and maybe never will be able to talk again. Yea, It’s all starting to make sense.
This could be the guy whose car they hijacked. They let him go after about a half hour and the police may have thought that he was one of the Chechens.
There’s nothing in that video that confirms that he was Suspect #1. Also story has it that Suspect #2 backed up over his brother Suspect #1 while trying to escape.
Sounds to me (and I speculate) like there was a shoot-out between police and the suspects but the suspects were not in clear sight of the police (at least not the car)and this gave the younger brother time to back over his brother and leave the scene. I would assume that the police didn’t even see the car when it left and probably waited a while before approaching not knowing that one suspect was down and the other had left the scene.
There were lots of people taken aside and questioned that whole 24 hour period. Remember the guy on the ground face down? One could have assumed he was also one of the two bombers, but he was just a passer-by.
My guess is this naked man was suspected to be one of the suspects like many others were that confusing night.
