Man Being Queried on Tsarnaev Ties Is Killed by Officer
NYTimes ^ | May 22, 2013 | MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT

BOSTON — A man in Orlando, Fla., who was being interviewed early Wednesday morning by law enforcement officers about his ties to the deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect was fatally shot after he tried to attack the officers with a knife, according to a federal law enforcement official.

The officers — who included an F.B.I. agent from the Boston field office and two Massachusetts state troopers — were questioning the man, Ibragim Todashev, about whether he had played a role in a triple murder on Sept. 11, 2011, in Waltham, Mass., which had been one of the biggest mysteries in the aftermath of the bombings.

The officers had been interviewing Mr. Todashev in his apartment for some time when he tried to attack them, the official said.

Islam is very similar to cancer.

In America, it has already spread through out the body.

Exactly. Whether intentionally or not.

These flatfoots need to exercise some control when they are faced with these situations. These scumbags are just waiting for a chance to get themselves killed to protect their network. The police shouldn't be doing them any favors.

“....were questioning the man, Ibragim Todashev....”

Why do they have to interrogate a Catholic Irishman when the suspicion clearly falls on someone islamic?

Why was he in this country in the first place? Why are we giving visas to young male Muslims from terrorist spawning hell-holes? He had an assault conviction. Why had he not been deported?

If they had only shot him with a chocolate bullet, then we’d still have a live witness.

“fatally shot after he tried to attack the officers with a knife...”

Was it a real knife or a Sears knife?

There are enough holes in this story that I could drain pasta with it.

Only one agent as interviewer?
If the subject was a Mixed Martial Artist (aka Trayvon©) then what precautions did the interviewer have to subdue him, other than a service piece?
"Shot While Trying To Escape"?
"Suicide by Cop"?
The Chicago Way...

So why wasn’t he transported to a facility and frisked before questioning? I am NOT a conspiracy nut but this is really odd.

Just how in hell did this guy get a knife into a police dept.?Either the cops failed to search him prior to their interview.They should have done that as a matter of self defense.

You never allow someone into your vehicle without previously searching them.

Second.What happend to the metal detectors in the police HQ?I’m sure the entrance to that building is on video 24 hours a day.I can’t wait to see it.

I must have missed the part where they said he was under arrest.

Would you submit to a frisking without being arrested?

I think it is standard procedure to frisk EVERYONE before going into a police facility.

The cops routinely frisk and handcuff everyone around without even a hint of an arrest.

It is all for their own safety you know. That makes everything they do OK.

Perhaps a better reading of the article would have informed you that the interview was taking place in the now dead guy’s apartment.

Pretty much answers both of your questions.

The interview was at the dead guy’s apartment, which is pretty clearly stated all the way in paragraph 3 of the linked article.

That is my point, he should have been taken “downtown” for questioning.

It happened "at the Windhover condominium complex near Kirkman Avenue and Vineland Road" about ten miles from Disney World, according to this report. Supposedly, Todashev was about to sign a statement admitting a role, along with Tsarnaev, in the 2011 Waltham murders.

the guy is under no obligation to do so, hence the interview taking place at the apartment.

Thanks for the Info.Still in this case the Police knew they had a potential threat and apparently did nothing to protect themselves prior to interviewing the Perp.

At the same time this guy could have had weapons hidden all over that apartment.They’re luckey that that weren’t killed or Seriously injured.

It looks like these officers need to go back and get retrained.

It was a kid with a knife. Any cop who hasn't taken it upon himself to train in techniques to disarm a person with a knife in close quarters ought not be doing the job.

This"kid"was 27 years old and was 6'6. He was an experienced mixed martial artist and he was armed with a knife and you expect the cops to hands on with this guy? I don't know your background and your law enforcement experience may be more than mine; but from what has been reported the cops more than likely were unable to do anything else. However, I do think they should have searched the area of the home where they were questioning this guy. And, again your law enforcement training may be very superior, but the officers who worked for me were trained in close quarters fighting, both armed and unarmed, however not one of them expect some of our Aikido instructors would be able to disarm a MMA practitioner.

Then you are correct. I posted without having read that particular information you provided.

Given that scenario, they probably did the only thing they could...and were trained to do.

But yes...a complete sweep of the house/apartment he was being questioned in would have been prudent.
