Bomber awake & responding to questions after he 'shot himself in the head while cornered in boat'
Daily Mail UK ^ | April 21, 2013 | Michael Zennie and Paul Thompson In Boston

Posted on 04/21/2013 7:51:58 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The alleged Boston Marathon bomber is awake and responding to questions in his hospital bed.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is responding sporadically in writing to questions from investigators regarding other cell members and other unexploded bombs, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

The 19-year-old 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 on Friday night. However, instead of killing him, the bullet simply tore through his neck.

Authorities initially said they couldn't question him because of the throat wound. CNN reports earlier today that Tsarnaev was 'intubated and sedated' at a Boston hospital.

The Boston police commissioner said Tsarnaev is in 'critical but stable' condition on Sunday - which appears to be a downgrade from reports earlier this weekend that his condition was only 'serious.'

Boston Mayor Tom Menino had earlier feared that federal agents would never be able to interview Tsarnaev but it seems that investigators may already be making progress.

Police sources told MailOnline that investigators are looking into the possibility that Tsarnaev and his older brother Tamerlan had a suicide pact so that neither of them could be taken alive and put on trial. Authorities believe Dzhokhar likely killed him brother, who was handcuffed, when he ran over him....

He needs to use it.

Or be impaled with a Fishing Harpoon.

Because if he doesn't talk he provides no service of keeping him alive.

OK, so is this how it went down, the perp shoots himself as the cops close in so naturally they all unload on him and turn the boat into swiss cheese? And with all that firing as heard on the video clip, they didn’t hit the kid?

He was doing A-OK on the run, until he put the bullet in his own mouth and neck: the suicide pack with his terrorist brother.
Starting to make sense now; perhaps the shot fired from inside the boat was his last bullet; the one he turned on himself?

The self inflicted wound must not have been too bad. I though I saw a picture of him climbing out of the boat under his own power.

The Boston police chief said on TV that the bomber shot at police, but they did not return fire. My guess is the Feds filled the boat with holes.

Like most self-described "liberals," he has fear instead of sense, fear instead of principles, fear instead of intelligence, and more and more fear. People of fear always tell lies.

Look at the pics of the boat! All shots were fored high into the side panel He was laying in bottom of boat.
Those do not look like lethal impacts. The face of the panel looks scarred but no penetration!
Whatever his motives were you got to give it to the kid 20 hrs bleeding and still vigiliant!
Not sayin thats a good thing but the Cat has some stamina!
It’s crying shame he threw his life away!

Yesterday the story in some media was that the cops were firing rubber bullets into the boat because they had strict orders to bring him back alive.

and they don’t trust us with guns.....

likely because 50 leo’s could unload at us and miss completely. but we’d take 6 or 7 with our 7 round clip.

You want gun control? take um away from cops that can’t hit the side of a barn.

Yeah, well this story seems to tell US he’s a lousy shot. ... But then he climbed out of the boat on his own power after a self-inflicted gunshot through the mouth into the neck? Sounds like the one making that story up didn’t know Jack shyte about human anatomy ... Whew, something really stinks about this.

We have MDs here. I have a question:
If this guy shot himself in the mouth. even if the bullet exited his neck (I am assuming the side of his neck, not straight back), how can he be intubated? Isn’t there damage inside his mouth?

I saw the pics. He has a mask over his nose and mouth and one picture showed an ambu bag, while another showed a respirator tube. At least on the left side of his face and neck, I saw no wounds.

Could someone with trauma experience explain what sort of damage would likely be incurred?

My only personal experience with trauma inside the mouth is a tooth extraction. I sure wouldn’t have wanted any foreign object inside my mouth even with that relatively low level of gum trauma.

Another wound issue: the Saudi royal relative has a burn on his hand. What I saw in the 2 pics available was a 4x4 gauze covering the back of his left hand. Otherwise, no burns, the fingers were interlaced, so probably no burns on the palm, either. Stove burns on hands are common and they are painful, yet this kid is sitting there with his hands together, smiling. A very minor little burn, it seems.

Meanwhile, there are people without limbs and with flesh shredded by shrapnel. They are the ones deserving of sympathy and compassion.

An endotracheal tube can be inserted through either the mouth or nose. With severe oral trauma a tracheostomy can also be done

He shot himself in the head/neck-when? after he pulled himself up from being in the boat or after-was that before the police grabbed him. What a story of events to follow.

it is possible. Had a friend that shot himself in the jaw with a .40 cal and then walked into the kitchen and called the ambulance. Bullet bounced off his jaw...so bullets can do weird things...and so can people.
