According to the Wall Street Journal, two Chechen Muslim extremists brothers are being sought by police in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing. The brothers, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnayev and 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnayev were identified from video taken near the scene of the bombing.
The brothers are believed to have been involved (based again, on video) in the armed robbery of a 7-11 store and car-jacking. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer, Sean Collier, was killed by the terrorists at that time. Fortunately the older brother is dead, slain during a gun battle in which a Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority officer was also wounded. Tamerlan reportedly had explosives with him and there are reports that the terrorists were using grenades during their flight from MIT in Cambridge to Watertown.
Tamerlan had extremist Muslim views, or at least that is what is shown on his Youtube channel. The search continues in Watertown for Dzhokhar, who may have been wounded.
And to any of you idiots that don’t think police have any purpose or use in society, F off.
