JERSEY CITY, NJ—To many who knew them, brothers Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26 and Dzhokar Tsarnaev, 19, seemed to be on a rightful path in life in America, until they were identified as the prime suspects of the Boston marathon bombings.
At a press conference early Friday, their uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, called them ‘losers’ and said that they have brought their family and community shame. He also asked his living nephew, Dzhokar, to turn himself to authorities.
“I say Dzhokhar, if you’re alive, turn yourself in. And ask for forgiveness. The victims, from the injured and from those who are left; ask forgiveness on these people. We’re not requiring forgiveness in this family. He put a shame on our family, Tsarnaev family, he put a shame on the entire Chechnya community,” said Tsarni.
Dzokhar was a student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth where he studied medicine. He was a school wrestler and has reportedly been described by his father as a ‘true angel.’
The City of Cambridge awarded him a $2,500 dollar scholarship two years ago as a senior at Cambridge Ridge Latin School.
The other suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who perished Thursday during a shootout with police, reportedly studied at Bunker Hill community college and wanted to become an engineer. But he reportedly took a year off from school to train as a boxer.
A posting on a social media site under his name, Tamerlan said, “I don’t have a single American friend. I don’t understand them.”
The brothers are reportedly of Chechnya heritage.
Cbs news reported the brothers were believed to be living legally in the U.S.

    this family from chechnya was granted asylum 10 years ago, for permanent USA residents, to naturalization of the surviving terrorist. the family are on welfare, living off on other people’s money. the mother committed crimes of shop lifting. the parents rated by the government as poor are takers, maximizing freebies their hands can get into, yet can afford to travel to chechnya, a country of their origin they claimed was to persecute them, qualified them for asylum, now the parents are back to chechnya. the father have said his sons are angels after learning of their acts of terrorism, as if he is applauding their terroristic acts. the parents have not shown bereavement with the death of the older son, and sadness for the seriously wounded younger son. this attest to islamist’s belief their older son’s death, terrorizing, killing hostile people for a cause was God’s calling, making him a martyr. the parents did not seem to be bothered with their wounded younger son, also bear out their endorsement of his terroristic acts. many argues, giving the surviving terrorist the death penalty will make him a martyr, will cause grand celebrations of the radical muslims. i don’t buy into this full of bullcrap culture of the radical muslims, justifying their acts of terrorism. regrettably, to a point have successfully intimidated lump of the american society buying into this crack-brained bullcrap. terrorism of killing enemies and the non believers are the culture of the radical muslims alone period. therefore, the US government must send a very strong message to this radical muslims, the american culture of putting these terrorists to death are getting rid of POS, like these terrorists are garbage that either need to get burn or buried. america must adhere to american culture alone period.

      Who are they ? Well if people dont know any better asking who they are , allow me to tell you what I know . This two brother are Muslim and want nothing more than to kill infidels. The goal of Muslim is jihad against people of other religions.

      We must never believe that a part of Islam is taught to be peaceful while a more fundamental group of Muslims are taught to murder. This lie comes from the left in the form of political correctness to cover up the truth about Islam.

      Today the Muslims actively wage war everywhere , Muslims would kill any Non-Believer , think they are doing God a service.Let me remind you as well that Muslims uses takiyyah (leing) to non muslims to promote Islam. They will quickly say Islam means peace , which is lieng to their teeth .

      Violence, rape, murdering Non Muslims is the religion of Islam. Playing with bombs finding the next way to inflict the greatest number of deaths and casualties to ordinary Non Muslims is the religion of Islam. Hatred for infidels and women is the religion of Islam. Expansion and conquering and then destroying other cultures is the religion of Islam. Discrimination and classifying non Muslims as second class citizens is the religion of Islam. Looting and robbing is the religion of Islam.

    All the injured victims might say life in prison but those 4 innocent lives who did not deserved to leave their families and friends would like the demon, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, to pay for what his done. Lethal Injection is what we all want as his punishment.
