Another thing wrong

I was clearly under the impression on Friday night that the older brother involved in the Boston bombing had died from gunfire.

Maybe not.

One of his officers put his cruiser into gear and jumped out of it, letting it roll at the suspects to draw fire, he said. The suspects peppered the car with bullets.

After several minutes, the elder brother, Tamerlan, walked toward the officers, firing his gun until he appeared to run out of bullets, Deveau said. Officers tackled him and were trying to get handcuffs on him, when the stolen SUV came roaring at them, the younger brother at the wheel. The officers scattered and the SUV plowed over Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was dragged briefly under the car, he said.

Dzhokar Tsarnaev abandoned the SUV almost immediately on a nearby street and fled on foot, triggering an all-day manhunt.
There are a lot of possible explanations for such an action IF that is actually what happened: from error, to panic, to anger, to a determination to shut him up.

Let the speculation begin.

I was under the impression the younger brother backed over the older brother.

Hmm. The surgeon on duty described him as having wounds consistent with multiple gunshots and explosives burns.

Somebody's not telling the truth.

I don't see any brotherly resemblance between these two guys. If they are really brothers, mom was messing around.

the chaos at a simple house fire or an MVA (motor vehicle collision) is crazy enough. add in nighttime and you multiply by 10. now, add in the number of flashing lights, the muzzle bursts, the explosions and cloud of both gunsmoke and panic, being shot at, being left on your own at the tender age of 19 and being blinded even further by the fight or flight reflexes that drive survival without thought, and shit happens. conspiracists are going to be having a high time with this, and not one of them would be able to reliably tell you which leg they lifted first to put on their superman underoos even though in all likely hood the most dangerous thing in the room with them at the time was a hot cup of coffee.

that, of course, won't stop them from speculating their little pea brains into a lather to misdirect everyone from gun control and the fact that more gun deaths happened on friday than all those killed in boston.

the need to see evil is most revealiing in those who can't do good.

There is the naked man on CNN.

The aunt says it's Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Then again there is "Linda" who called into the Dennis & Callahan morning radio show in Boston. She details what she heard and saw on Dexter St. that night.
