Professor: We Used 'Too Much Force' Capturing Boston Bombers(barf alert)
Fox News ^ | 4/22/13

Posted on 04/22/2013 2:12:57 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

City University of New York Professor Ruth O'Brien complains in an op-ed that "too much force" had been used against Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed by the police. -snip- This said, the mortuary pictures of the older brother of the two are extremely disturbing, raising questions as to whether the Boston Police Department captured him with too much force. I understand the explanation offered by Katharine Q. Seelye, William H. Rashbaum, and Michael Cooper. Yet, it does not ring true. A picture is worth a thousand words that will keep our ears ringing as we recoil from this photo. Images have a way of searing themselves into our memory in a way that can’t be undone. We have an emotional memory, not just a rational one that is exemplified by words. While terrorism is about causing fear — again an emotion — we do have to account for our conduct in these extreme times when adrenaline is running high. At my home, to at least offset this, we turn off all media. I couldn’t believe my sons’ explanation when they got home about one brother running over the other one. So I found a place to read about this, and I recoiled after seeing the picture. Still, we all know that terrorism, like crime, “leads if it bleeds” with the established media. The established media fixates on the domestic-violence or crime-of-passion aspect of terrorism, and it, too, inculcates more fear in all of us.

Rhetorical question:was this b*ctch equally repulsed be the images of the limbless bombing victims clinging to life, or the images that leaked out of Gosnell's abort-o-mat? This is the type mindset that that convinces herself that Martin Richard's death was a pre-adolescent suicide.

terrorists are to be treated with the highest respect, innocents are to be treated with greatest possible indignity and cruelty.

Why hasn't anybody socked this idiot 'professor' in the jaw yet?!

I think the brothers used “too much force” in killing and maiming people with bombs at the marathon. Liberals are sick criminal, terrorist lovers.

The police officers were to sacrifice their lives and render their children fatherless so that the beloved-by-liberals terrorist animal could be gently brea-hugged like an unruly toddler.

and liberals wonder why we hate them for saying such stupid crap?

I love that loser and pansies recoil at pictures. I stood up and clapped when I saw it, made copies and posted it on my wall.

I hate weak-wristed pansies. They have had a big part in the undoing of this great country.

I’ve seen the picture. I wonder if the writer realizes that the huge gash in the guy’s side is where the doctors operated while trying to keep him alive?

Not enough force, and accountability to those who let the terrorists in, and removed the dogs.

"What difference does it make?"

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
"
President Ronald Reagan

Unpopular, but my observation was that once the location of the #2 bomber was known, the police exhibited absolutely no fire discipline.....you could hear their supervisors yell to “cease fie, cease fire” throughout the video clip as the troopers fired full auto against apparently no return fire.....

I believe that she should have gone out and captured the suspects herself. I’m sure she would have been gentle and loving and they shot at her and threw bombs at her.

I read somewhere that the younger brother, driving a carjacked SUV, tried to run down the police with while they were handcuffing the older one. The police managed to get out of the way, but the older brother was run over and dragged for some distance. If true, that may account for a few bumps and bruises.

These people are put out there to intentionally provoke the beatings they so deserve. Thus giving the msm a target to point to and claim ‘right wing violence’

PURE provocation.

I happen to agree with him. One sniper, one bullet and it’s over in minutes.

Way too much theatrics and 48/7 for the media. The terrorists won’t ever stop but at least the rest of the people could go on about their day and it would cost a whole lot less.

Stupid Liberal Bitch!

It has also been reported that, as police closed in he may have attempted to commit suicide. That attempt failed but left him with a severe throat wound that required him to be “intubated and sedated” and left him in a critical condition at a Boston hospital.

As Tamerlan was being handcuffed and arrested, police say his younger brother drove the vehicle at high speed towards the group. The police officers were able to dive out the way of the vehicle, but the older brother was hit by the car and dragged for a short distance.

I think she left out the part about how these two losers used too much force in trying to remain unarrested. If’they’d only have used the pressure cooker bomb and the handguns but not the pipebomb, dear Professor, perhaps they could have been arrested with less force????

Go draft some pressure-cooker-control legislation, Professor.

I do have to admit that the cops fired a lot of rounds and there are no media reports that confirm Brother 1 was hit by police fire and the only bullet wounds #2 sustained, were apparently self-inflicted.

Well look at it this way...TC running over yer bro is probably what Allah would have wanted in the spirit if jihad....in this particklar case....how peaceful can a religion of peace get? See now big bro lies peacfully in a nice cool slab of marble one of the Boston morgues....And in the alternative....have you thought of this?...couldn’t the Boston Police just have ‘turned the other cheek’ in this situation and not engaged in this vicious one sided man hunt at all. Then might that gesture of other cheekedness have somehow softened the hearts of the kilers and then they’d just have lain down their guns and pressure cookers and left the country peaceably and quietly and quickly perhaps even gobernment provided choppers...thus ending this altogether ugly incident altogether. And most importantly, they’d have left it in the spirit of the religion of peace and in the peace word of the messenger. BWAAAAAAAAAACK! anyway.... PEACE OUT BRO, WORD TO YO MOMMA..
