LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tzarnaev – on their Facebook like account profile, an Amazon.com Wishlist, a YouTube account, and a Johannes Hirn photo essay – described a displeasure with the U.S. The Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tzarnaev (photos below) digital footprint including a Facebook like account on VKontakte showed two Chechnya terrorists brothers loving the Mafia, fraud, fame and money. Today suspect 1, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is dead. suspect 2, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remains on the run in the Boston Marathon bombings.
In their Russian Facebook like account and elsewhere, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tzarnaev discussed their love of the Mafia and their dislike of the U.S. “I don’t have a single American friend, I don’t understand them,” the older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, said in a photo essay to Johannes Hirn in 2009. “Tamerlan fled Chechnya with his family because of the conflict in the early 90s, and lived there for years in Kazakhstan before getting to the United States as a refugee,” wrote Him. But Tamerlan professed his love of money and fame.
Him also talked about Tamerlan Tzarnaev’s displeasure with U.S. immigration. “If he wins enough fights… Tamerlan says he could be selected for the US Olympic team and be naturalized American. Unless his native Chechnya becomes independent, Tamerlan says he would rather compete for the United States than for Russia.”
Initial news reports claim that the two brothers entered the U.S. via a Turkish passport with their family in roughly 2001. But the parents left the boys alone in the U.S. and returned back to Russia. Tamerlan told the reporter, while he was studying at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston, “There are no values anymore [ in the U.S.] …people can’t control themselves.”
But something changed thereafter. Tamerlan’s Amazon wishlist thereafter featured a series of items concerning the Mafia and organized crime. “How to Make Driver’s Licenses and Other ID on Your Home Computer” and “The I.D. Forger: Homemade Birth Certificates & Other Documents Explained” were among his favorites.
His activity on Amazon.com’s wishlist became most intense in August 2006. Then he added “Secrets Of A Back Alley ID Man: Fake Id Construction Techniques Of The Underground”, books about fraud, items about the Roman Empire, and several Chechen writings.
Tamerlan was a two time Golden Gloves champion who wanted to go pro. He was reportedly a heavyweight. The younger brother was a wrestler. He was in great shape and reportedly got a scholarship for it that got him into college in 2011. Dzhokhar wrestled at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School in Cambridge, Mass. He became the Greater Boston League Winter All Star in 2011. The two brothers had a residence on Norfolk Street in Cambridge.
The brothers entered the U.S. in roughly 2001. Their father Anzor Tsarnaev is back in Russia. But in a statement to news, Anzor Tsarnaev said to AP “My son is a true angel. Dzhokhar is a second-year medical student in the U.S. He is such an intelligent boy. We expected him to come on holidays here.”
But Anzor’s brother calls his nephews “losers”. Tamerlan wrote on social media his love of “career and money.” Another uncle told news today “They do not deserve to exist on this earth,” he said. “I just wished they never existed. I am wordless.”
