Slain bombing suspect knew Watertown terrain well

WATERTOWN — When Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed after a fiery­ shoot-out with police, the Boston Marathon bombing suspect and his younger brother were making their last stand in a neighborhood Tamerlan knew well.

On at least a dozen occasions, Tamerlan had visited a two-family home on Boylston Street, just a few short blocks from the scene of his violent death, to meet with friends who knew him as a freewheeling Muslim who danced to hip-hop music, smoked marijuana, and always kept a prayer rug in the trunk of his car.

“He’d wash his hands and lay it out in the backyard and pray for 20 minutes or a half-hour a handful of times a day,” said Sebastian A. Freddura, a hip-hop performer and onetime Cambridge neighbor who was one of Tamerlan’s oldest friends in America. “We’d smoke a jay and he’d come out and pray.”

In an interview with the Globe, Freddura provided new information that may help explain the final, bizarre two hours of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s life as he and his brother, Dzhokhar, fled in a carjacked vehicle on the night of April 18 and drove to this quiet, secluded neighborhood.

He’s still referred to as a suspect so that St. Peter’s verdict is not unduly influenced.

Play, pray, smoke a jay, slit a few throats, blow up a kid or two, beat up his girlfriend, high-five his friends—definitely a free-wheeling Muslim.

Is this the 2 story house shown on the news....where person after person was led out (men and women) cuffed and led down the sidewalk.----almost looked like a 'clown car' so many people were staying there.

At the time, folks here (FR) thought it an abuse of authority to 'randomly' select a house & with drawn guns and bullhorns demand the people come out.

Tamarlan played, prayed, smoked a jay, slit a few throats, blew up a kid, and a few Bostonians' legs, beat up his girlfriend, high-fived his friends, had money to burn, rode the US gravy train under several identities (see Tam's reading list on Amazon)----definitely a free-wheeling Muslim.


ISLAMIC STRANGLEHOLD ON BOSTON Pretty soon they'll start whining about building a mosque close to the Boston Marathon finish line b/c Islam is all about "triumphalism" (thus the plans to build a mosque near the WTC).

And you can bet they'll get lotsa help from Obomba, Boston Mayor Menino, Secy of State Kerry, and Gov Deval Patrick (who obstructed govt dissemination of the Tsarnaev's welfare $$haul). Read on.

BOSTON MAYOR MENINO (hands down, the dumbest mayor in the US). Menino was never as stupid as when he tried to drive Chick-fil-A from Boston last year.

"Just call me Mayor Stupid."

WAIT FOR IT---yet another stupid remark from Menino, and I quote.....the Boston bomber brothers "acted alone" says Menino.

STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES Boston Mayor Menino (he was the stupid-sounding one at the presser held after the marathon bombings----in the wheelchair---injured in auto accident) should be rigorously scrutinized ---- possibly charged with aiding and abetting terror against Americans. Menino handed Islamics a $2 million piece of land for $170,000 to build the Boston Mosque.

EDITED/EXCERPT Most Boston locals concede that getting anything of substance accomplished in Boston is a Herculean task. Residents have all but embraced the principle of civic inaction with a perverse kind of local pride. In the end, "who you know" is probably more important than what you are trying to do.

STRONGARM MAYOR And there is no doubt that little is accomplished without the approval and support of the mayor, Thomas M. Menino.

So it is with the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) near the intersection of Tremont Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Better known as the Roxbury mosque, the ISBCC has been in the works for more than 20 years. A few weeks ago it finally opened its doors for prayer — five years late, millions over budget, and still far from complete.

While the story of the building of the Roxbury mosque may not be worthy of a Hollywood epic, it does contain the stuff of a good television drama: (with Mayor Menino aiding and abetting) community intrigue, religious conflict, media controversy, foreign money, suspicions of extremist ties......and once-cocksure public officials, who (like Menino and then-Sen Kerry who once gave Islamics serial BJ's) have since retreated into a zone of silence.


Bombers worshipped at Islamic Society of Boston's mosque.---built w/ strongarm sap-happy Menino's govt authority.

Kerry's "credentials," presented to Ohaha when the Secy of State job became available.

Islamic jihadist motivation that drove the Boston massacre is a non-starter in the WH.

"I'm directing Sen Schumer to rename immigration reform:
'The Ariel Castro Respect and Dignity for Latinos Bill.""

"A separate amendment---'The Tamarlan Tsarneav Memorial
Amendment'---will provide government-issue pressure cookers,
fireworks, and jars of vaseline for tormented Chechneyan
immigrants seeking "asylum" from govt persecution."
