UPDATE: [edited text. A reader pointed out it was David Bruck, not Judy Clarke who said the video did not exist. He was correct. Thanks]
UPDATE: It should also be pointed out that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty to these charges back in mid 2013. Though there has been talk that he should change his plea, he has not.
The other day, one of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s attorneys, David Bruck, told the judge that the infamous video the FBI claims to have showing her client planting the bomb near the finish line of the Boston Marathon “does not exist”
Based on that many of us thought maybe, perhaps, this once, a patsy in the U.S. would finally get something close to a fair trial or at least marginally respectable representation. For once.
Judy Clarke said the bombings were “misguided acts” carried out by Tsarnaev and his late older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. “There’s little that we dispute. It was him,” she said in US District Court in Boston.
She sought to shift blame to the older brother, saying he had “self-radicalized” and the younger brother had “followed him.” Boston Globe
If we are to believe the article from the Boston Globe, Judy Clarke used her opening statement, all 20 minutes of it, to explain why the jurors should hang her client.
Judy tossed Dzhokhar under every bus in the city of Boston, claiming he helped make the bombs, planted them, killed a cop for no apparent reason, hijacked a car so he could confess to the driver and let him escape, ran over his own brother and ultimately ended up dazed and confused in someone’s backyard scribbling a confession on the wall of the inside of a boat (which they only found after the fabricated confession the FBI beat out of him was tossed)
Then she ends up saying this:
“Evidence will not establish, and we will not argue, that Tamerlan put a gun to Dzhokhar’s head,”,,,
Clarke on Wednesday, in her statement, which lasted only about 20 minutes, urged jurors to carefully weigh the words that Tsarnaev wrote while hiding inside the Watertown boat, which she suggested will reflect an jealous younger sibling.
“He expressed he was jealous of his brother who achieved martyrdom,” she said, and wished he could, too, Clarke said. “We ask you to carefully evaluate the testimony … about writings … where they came from and how deeply rooted they may or may not be.’’ Boston Globe
In other words:
“My client wasn’t forced to blow people up in Boston but he did it anyway. And that stupid, obviously contrived fake confession written on the side of the boat after the other one got tossed, is legit. And oh yeah, my client wants to be a martyr, so go ahead and kill him” Judy “I want a job at the Justice Department” Clarke
Only in America can you get legal representation like this.
You ever seen the trial scene in “Idiocracy”? Yeah, that’s about the size of it.
The official story is so fucking stupid, a brain-dead child could successfully defend Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
There is no video of him or his brother planting a bomb in Boston that day though FBI agents and politicians alike have been lying about one for over a year.For that matter, the authorities lied about another video, one they claim showed the brothers calmly walking away from the scene after the carnage. That video doesn’t exist either and in fact, a photo showing the younger brother running from the scene like everyone else surfaced not long after the lie about them just hanging out was being circulated.
“First of all, the Feds have produced neither of the two videos they claim to have showing 1. Dzhokhar planting a bomb and 2. them hanging out watching the aftermath then slowly walking away. In fact, the evidence we have suggests a totally different story. The new story about all of this drops any mention of those two videos down the memory hole.” American Everyman
Authorities have been misleading us about this event and the investigation from the very beginning if you remember. That’ ladies and gentlemen, would usually be considered a rather damning indictment of the prosecution’s case, especially considering they’ve repeatedly made mention of the non-existing “bomb planting video” several times in court proceedings.
“The second thing to remember is the fact that the FBI pretended to need our help to identify the two men while the entire time their own local field offices had been in steady contact with the boys for at least two years. The FBI has come out since and admitted their involvement with the boys and several congressmen are asking how they “dropped the ball” on this one. The FBI is avoiding answering congress’ questions.” American Everyman
And what about the witness the FBI killed during their interrogation down here in Florida? Remember how many times they lied about what happened to him?
For Christ’s sake:
A good lawyer would be all over this crap but it would appear, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev doesn’t have a good lawyer. He has a careerist.
From the images I saw, it looks like the two brothers were hanging out in front of a restaurant waiting to meet someone, the same someone who set them up to be the fall guys. How difficult would it be for his lawyer to follow-up on that angle?
His mother has said her sons were set up.
His father has said his sons were set up.
The bomb itself was fabricated using BBs rather than buckshot or nuts and bolts. The reason for that is: whoever created it, didn’t want a massive body count, just a lot of injured people.
For that matter, the bombs didn’t detonate as the first of the athletes crossed the finish line when there were more people at the location and it was being broadcast live on TV. Instead, they waited till a couple hours later when it was just some scrub amateurs finishing the race and most of the spectators were gone.
Is that the work of a “self-radicalized” jihadist waging war on the West or an operative manufacturing a false flag event?
And speaking of the back-pack bomb, I’ll just leave this here:
Point is, there is more than enough evidence to cast serious doubt on not only this young man’s guilt, but also on the way the investigation was handled in the first place.
But not according to Judy Clarke.
The real tragedy here is not that Dzhokhar will be wrongly convicted in a kangaroo court up in Boston nor that his brother died such a violent death.
The real tragedy is that people of Boston will not get any justice out of this, just a placebo. And those folks who did set those bombs will be emboldened to do it again and again if the need arises.
UPDATE for Jody: If you look a little closer, you can see what appears to be his right leg. His left is behind the woman and most of the right is hidden behind the baby carrier thingy. But it is there. You can see the seam on his right pant leg. There are several photos of them waiting in front of that bar for someone. Of course, to me, I have to wonder… why did someone feel the need to take pictures of them waiting in front of a bar?
