(CBS News) The FBI was involved in what it called a “violent confrontation” in Orlando, Fla., early Wednesday that killed a Chechen man with ties to the older brother suspected in last month’s deadly terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon.
OMG THEY HAVE TIES TO THE TERRORISTS, JUST LIKE MOST IRL FRIENDS
CBS News senior correspondent John Miller, a former FBI assistant director, reported on “CBS This Morning” that the man, Ibragim Todashev, was friends with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a suspect in the attack that killed three people and injured more than 260 others.
Notice how a month later Tamerlan is still being referred to as a suspect. He was murdered without due process.
The FBI has not commented on the relationship between Todashev and Tsarnaev but confirmed that Todashev died in the shootout. Miller reports that, like Tsarnaev, who was once a boxer, Todashev was a mixed-martial-arts fighter.
It’s not a “shootout” if you don’t have a gun.
In a statement Wednesday, the FBI didn’t refer to Todashev by name but said that the individual who died was being interviewed in connection with the investigation into the April 15 attack. An FBI special agent was accompanied by two Massachusetts State Police troopers and other law-enforcement officers to interview Todashev in the apartment complex where he lived.
“In the encounter in the apartment, something went wrong,” Miller said.
I’ll fucking say. Why not just give us the detailed report of exactly what went down already?
The FBI said that the interview subject initiated “a violent confrontation.” The FBI said the agent “sustained non-life-threatening injuries” during the confrontation and was involved in the shooting but didn’t provide any other details.
Did he? What reason would he have to initiate a “violent confrontation” if you followed protocol by calmly knocking on his door with your warrant?
An official told CBS News that Todashev came at the agent with a knife.
So he was murdered because he had a knife with which to defend himself - Todashev obviously felt provoked somehow or else he would not have “initiated a ‘violent confrontation.’
How do people believe this stuff? They’ve murdered two American citizens now over the Boston marathon bombings.
I am glad this fucker is dead. I believe it is better than locking them up. I believe the officals. DEATH TO ALL ANTI-AMERICAN TERRORISTS. I WANT THAT ON MY CAR.
