Irony: ......Call saved bombers life... Update: Did Dzhokhar accidentally kill his brother?

This provides quite an ironic capper to That Was The Rotten Week That Was. The police had just given a press conference essentially saying that they couldn’t find 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and that people could once again leave their homes in Boston when David Henneberry noticed something odd in his backyard — an untied tarp flapping in the wind:

After authorities relaxed the lockdown with Tsarnaev still at large late Friday afternoon, David Henneberry headed outside and noticed that the tarp had become unsecured — something it had not done during the blizzards that hit Boston this winter. That, as boat owners know, simply will not do, so he went to fix it.

“He got closer and realized that one of the retention straps had literally been cut — not chafed, not broken or unhooked,” his stepson, Robert Duffy, told CNN’s Piers Morgan.

Henneberry noticed what appeared to be blood on the tarp and thought that perhaps an animal had gotten into the boat, so he climbed a stepladder and took a look. That’s when he saw something chilling.

“He definitely noticed that there was something crumpled up in a ball in the forward portion, and at that point, he became an absolute hero,” Duffy said. “He did the right thing, As law enforcement had urged, he jumped off the ladder and called 911. They were within foot traffic distance. Immediately my mother and David were evacuated from the home.”

The rest was history, and Henneberry theoretically saved a lot of lives with his alert thinking.  He may have explicitly saved one life in particular — Tsarnaev’s.  CBS reports this morning that the suspect would probably have died in the boat from wounds to his neck and leg had Henneberry not noticed the flapping tarp:

I probably read more into it than is there. I read it as the man was a hero for not only theoretically saving many lives by calling 911 on the killer but that he was also a hero for saving the killer’s life instead of letting him possibly die in that boat. I think I would have wanted hubby to heroically pull the trigger on the armed man in the boat.

Not much is known about size or whatever of a supporting cell.

" CBS reports this morning that the suspect would probably have died in the boat from wounds to his neck and leg had Henneberry not noticed the flapping tarp:"

Not true.

If Mr Henneberry had not found bomber #2, he would have died from a leg wound only.

The self inflicted neck wound happened because Mr Henneberry found him.

All in all, despite the damage to a perfectly fine boat (hopefully covered by insurance), it's best that Joker survived to answer questions.

He's at that age where his brother's hard-care influence may not have fully taken hold. Hopefully, before he ODs on KCl, he can spill the beans on some progressive multicultural efforts to spread religion.

Ernest. You got the last input from me at 4:35 AM EST..
I'm sure we shall see many things surface over the next few weeks, as you most likely would surmise.
For the stupid kid that ran over his brother's face, perhaps we shall in due time know the real reason it happened.
Then again. Perhaps we won't.
Do have a blessed upcoming day. In the end analysis, God is good beyond our human endeavor to give HIM praise in the final analysis.
You two and so many others at this site, take care. Most tender thoughts for you all. George

Yes, hopefully, if not negated by a weaselly terrorism exception.

I’m wondering if Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s in-laws called law enforcement and ID’d him? They had to recognize him & his brother immediately.
I read that his father-in-law is an emergency room dr and his mother-in-law is a nurse. Had they lived in Boston, they probably would have been tending to the injured.

I am sure that there is a casino in Vegas that will pay him LOTS of money for the boat once enough time has passed.

And now his boat is bloody and probably impounded for years.

Another reason to hate this jerk.

A more interesting question:

Did the younger bro INTENTIONALLY kill the severely wounded, but still alive brother, to keep him from surviving & possibly revealing info re. a terrorist cell, other planted bombs, or other valuable info?

I can only speak for myself and what I would have wanted hubby to do. Hubby would not have killed him unless the man raised a gun to shoot him. Modern forensics and all dictate actions. And I don’t think there was a Purina plant in the neighborhood. Heh. There was also the possibility of letting the terrorist bleed to death instead of alerting the police to his presence. But I don’t think most people think that way in such a situation. I read too many spy thrillers. Lol

Thanks. Yes I was aware of that bit of news surfacing in a few news reports.
