A bushy-haired and bearded Dzhokhar Tsarnaev made his first public appearance in more than 17 months as a throng of conspiracy theorists massed outside a Boston federal courthouse to show support for the terrorist suspect as he prepares for trial early next year.
The 21-year-old looked a bit different Thursday than the clean-cut photo that appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine months after the April 15, 2013, Boston Marathon bombing that left three dead and more than 260 injured.
His supporters, who claim Tsarnaev was set up and is actually innocent, massed outside the court building armed with provocative signs. Two women caught the eye of marathon bombing survivor Marc Fucarile, who limped by with a cane needed after he lost his right leg in the carnage.
“That’s trickery?” Fucarile fumed as he lifted his prosthetic leg to show the damage Tsarnaev is accused of doing to score of innocents.
“We’re talking about the prosecution,” one woman shot back as Fucarile shook his head and continued in. “You should care that they get the right guy!”
How long before this little terrorist scum becomes a liberal cause célèbre? I mean, Mumia Abu-Jamal is getting a little long in the tooth and doesn’t have the wow factor for insane liberal conspiracy idiots he once did. Is there any doubt that’s exactly what Rolling Stone was trying to do for Tsarnaev with its cover profile last year?
