This cell phone video was evidently captured down the street from the gun battle that resulted in the death of one of the Boston bombing suspects, early this morning.

Below, what may be the most ironic tweet in the history of Twitter.

 

That’s from the Twitter feed of Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, December 17. His profile pic matches the one on the VK page, which was changed on that page on March 19, 2013. Other tweets in the stream are mostly about English Premiere League soccer. The last tweet was on December 27, when he tweeted “#WorstThingInFootball Suarez,” referring to Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. The week of Dec. 27 last year, Suarez was in the midst of controversy for diving and accused cheating.

Update: Some on Twitter believe the account is a fake. The timeline does match events that were going on well outside politics at the time. I happen to follow Premiere League soccer and remember the events the account mentions. The Suarez controversy was huge back in December. The prior tweet, “You’re getting sacked in the morning!” #Benitez refers to Chelsea FC interim manager Rafa Benitez. Chelsea was struggling at the time, and club fans hate him for comments he made as manager of Liverpool a few years ago.

I’m keeping an open mind here, the account could be fake but at the point looks legit. Whoever wrote those tweets was tweeting about real world, non-political events as they were happening and were in the news.

UPDATE: According to BuzzFeed, Dzhokhar is a registered voter.

Update: Both were evidently registered voters. Neither were/are citizens of the US.

Update: The Twitter account above is indeed a fake.

Premier League. Actually the Barclays Premier League.
Not Premiere, Premier. The sport is poncey, not the name.

That's the Nebula nominee for best science fiction novel this year. So where do young people who watch Dr. Who get their cues from and what exactly is mainstreaming hate speech and who is radicalizing who and when is politics just politics?

Someone please remind me how it is that non-citizens get to register to vote? I seem to have missed that in Civics class.

1. Fill out registration card when signing up for food stamps or the welfare program of your choice, 2. show up and vote, or vote absentee. No ID checks, that would be discriminatory.

Are we going to need a background check now to buy French cheese? or only with a side order of 9mm? Chris Matthews is getting that tingling feeling in his back end about now as his words "come home to roost".

The gun control Left will work overtime to prove the tweet is fake. If it is real, then these boys have something in common with Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, minus the Islamic faith.

You need to check out the Buzz Feed links and read what they are saying: extreme disappointment that this is another Muslim extremist; another war on brown people, anger that this didn't fit their worldview, etc. Comprehension of exactly what a Chechen is seems to be a challenge

I grew weary today explaining where Chechnya is and explaining its links to Russia, Islam and terrorism.

Young Tsarnaev should'nt worry.

Judging from what I just saw on CNN the entire press corps is joining his defense team. Everyone now is trying very hard not to say "Chechnya."

The gun control re-tweet is ironic but not damning. Everybody re-tweets stuff.

The registered voter thing...a bit more interesting.
