Skip to comments.Professor: We Used 'Too Much Force' Capturing Boston Bombers(barf alert)
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 cant 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 couldnt 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.

I think the brothers used “too much force” in killing and maiming people with bombs at the marathon. Liberals are sick criminal, terrorist lovers.
LORD, SPARE US THE PROFESSORS!....
He was captured by professors?
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.
Keep talking Ruth, keep talking. You are a very effective advocate (for the conservative side, that is).
No doubt this professor would be urging calm and to just board the boxcar. Twerps like this never stand and resist.
This is why we should send Ruth O’Brien the next time we need terrorists arrested.
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?
Just as I suspected.
Beaten with 'too much force' by the ugly stick.
"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.....
Reality is often disturbing to the people that live in a make believe worlds.
Liberal scum, like this professor, do this everytime the police use force.
That is why our cities look like sewers full of arrogant criminals.
Get rid of tenure.
” Get rid of tenure”
Get rid of tenure(d)radicals.
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’m sure she would have a different opinion if the attack was on one of her beloved university or government buildings.
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’
Love the attempt of the forty something hag trying to look 18. A few dead and maimed innocents is a small price to pay for a liberal getting a tolerance high.
Pray for America to Wake Up
That’s a good point. Plus the vivid purplish staining [face & neck] was liver mortis. The police had nothing to do w it.
He was killed when his brother Joker ran over him.
She’s a hyper lib and Obama worshipper. From her website:
Professor & Author of forthcoming Out of Many, One: Obama & the 3rd American Political Tradition.
Reporting on this silly woman is like listening to the guy wearing an overcoat in the middle of July and pushing a shopping cart down the sidewalk.
That is why our cities look like sewers full of arrogant criminals.
Exactly. She should move to Detroit for a few years.
Gee professor, do you think he used too much explosives in the crowd of innocent people?
Fuk off and die Ruth.
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.
It is not Islam nor the street gangs that are our enemy. Our enemy is the politicians that support them. The media that promotes them. The Liberals that befriend them. They are our true enemy.
We need to use more force to lower tuition by exorcizing certain leftest profs from the faculty.
Wasn’t the report that Tami was being handcuffed when his bro ran him over to get away?
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.
The whole tree fell on that one!
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.
SETS OF DEPENDS, THEY NEED!
It’s more important to a liberal to display their lofty sentiment, than it is to avoid looking utterly stupid. This will be hard to top, she succeeded.
scares me that people like this a$$ clown actually breed more idiots
Nice glasses too at least the trend has moved away from those little rectangular glasses everyone was wearing.
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..
