Although police feared he was heavily armed, the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings had no firearms when he came under a barrage of police gunfire that struck the boat where he was hiding, according to multiple federal law enforcement officials.

So how’d he shoot himself in the throat?
I guess they were not taking any chances. But, I notice how the story keeps changing.
Maybe that's why the Dept. of Homeland Security has been buying millions of rounds of ammunition. Their plan for enhancing security involves shooting hundreds of rounds at unarmed people -- but never actually hitting anyone.
Maybe he didn't. Maybe obongo is "telling the truth, slowly" like the clintoons.
Where was the budget line-item for those purchases???
I hope you’re not believing the bull coming from these so called Officials
That was my first thought. Seems some of the ‘actors’ should get their act together and decide what did and did not happen. Just sounds like they made stuff up as they went along.
So much for the throat wound being self-inflicted.
I figured he didn’t, otherwise he would have shot the homeowner.
QE3 ... it’s a “stimulus” measure, don’t you know that?
note to operator....rotate weapon 90 degrees repeat test...
There could be an easy and innocent explanation for all the discrepancies. Frinstance, can be sure there were multiple authors to the script they used... and some of them were/are on different pages.
So did they recover any guns from his dead brother? I’ve been wondering about this all along. You can bet they didn’t get an assault rifle. That would have been the headline.
He was already bleeding when he got to the boat.
The way I’m getting it they killed the cop to steal his gun for Baby Bomber because he didn’t have one, but couldn’t figure how to unlock his holster. Got to wonder about the claims of several pistols and a rifle.
This e,plains why the boat-owner was not killed when he looked inside the tarp over the boat.
They're probably changing the story so the kid won't be charged with illegal weapons possession because the weapons were provided to him and his brother by Eric Holder.
Police were told to capture him alive. They intentionally shot up the boat including a machine gun on an armored vehicle.....I would have had 3 or4 cops sneak up on the boat and toss in tear gas grenades and it would ha been over
That would explain how the homeowner was able to peek under the tarp and survive to make the phone call...
Names. We want the names of these "officials" on the public record. Otherwise anything said is just a bunch of back stabbing hearsay.
“So howd he shoot himself in the throat?”
He had the gun but then he never did.
i read they killed the officer to get his gun so little brother could emulate his big brother. where did it go? and to repeat how did he shoot himself in the mouth where somehow it went thru his neck not paralyzing him.
He may have shot himself in the throat earlier,
must have been a shock when he realized he was still alive.
Haha, jokes on you.
According to what I have gathered from reports...they had only one pistol and one pellet gun betweeen them. That is the reason that the press has not been shouting about gun control.
It sound like one of the police assumed that movement was a gun and started the shooting..which was stopped by a supervisor ordering cease fire.
I guess the fact that he survived in the boat is an accident.
They NEED it for target practice. Wouldn't it be cheaper just to put laser sights on their firearms?
Plus, anything from the Washington Post on a federal agency has to be viewed through a political filter. They don’t report news, they publish a political interpretation.
Ooops...the very question that lept to my mind. These people don’t even know how to lie.
Now we are getting stories that the younger bomber was unarmed but shot to heck when he was captured. Government officials tell us that the older brother had a “9mm semi-automatic weapon” when he was killed. I wonder.
I am starting to doubt most, if not all that I am hearing.
.....”the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings had no firearms when he came under a barrage of police gunfire that struck the boat where he was hiding”......
...the victims on the street of Boston didn’t have any firearms on them either...when they came under a barrage of fire, flying “bullits” and smoke from this beast.. and they had no clue it was coming!
This “thing” that’s building of protecting this terrorist murderer is going to get fully out of hand.
They used several flash bangs to disorient the suspect before capturing him. They tore a hole in the tarp, threw each flash bang one at a time and then watched for any movement from fleer in the air or by snipers on rooftops. I heard it all on the scanner.
I don’t know what precipitated the earlier police fire. I did not hear that part on the scanner. I suppose it could have been jumpiness of someone at the time.
Has anyone noticed that there seems to be a news blackout on the firearms used by the bombers.
Normally the police would have an immediate photo op for the press and call for new gun control laws. One would think they would be demanding the SENATE re vote on the AW ban.
So why the blackout? Even some web sites are wondering why we haven’t seen the firearms.
He did not shoot himself, the police shot him.
You might want to check out what these two pulled out from the ‘other’ car....not to mention the bombs throwing out of the car prior...and what the police found in the residence.
When were the infrared photos taken and who took them?
Many of those bullits were false bullits.
I read that too, but later accounts said the policeman still had his sidearm with him when they found him.
Another inconsistency...if you look at the firefight pictures of the brothers, it’s kind blurry, but it looks like both brothers are shooting at the police indicating that they had at least two weapons. Now, I am hearing they only had one hand gun. Lots of changes to the details of this story.
When? Media or law enforcement?
Good point, haven't even heard what caliber lead was being thrown around.
actually I read a report ( wish I could remember where) that they had an M4 assault rifle...
the AR-15 is a semi-automatic while the m4 carbine is fully automatic. while it is legal to own an AR15 ( this is the gun feinstein wants gone) it is completely illegal for a civilian to have an M4.
So if what I read is true... where did they get one? They are also verrry expensive 6,000 to start.
” ..they had only one pistol and one pellet gun betweeen them.”
Heck I was more heavily armed.when I was 12.
Ask anyone in Boston who spent the day holding on to a baseball bat, they were assured that gun laws work.
Better to live one day as a lion than to be eaten by one.
Sorry Benito, stole and altered your quote.
Silly terrorist rabbit...Boats are made for water! LOL.
Good thing he didn't touch the blood. Might have caught Goat Syphilis.
We need to get a ping list going..too much info and different stories coming out. A what about the story that they cops were fired on and did not return fire? The Boston PD chief said that on Fox News in a presser shortly after white hat bomber was taken into custody.
