Do you not think it strange that the FBI begins questioning a “suspect” and does not have him properly searched? Claims he pulls a knife and they “had to kill him”? It seems awfully convenient that someone who apparently knew the suspected and killed bombers at the Boston Marathon is dead. Convenient for those not wanting information to get out, not convenient for the dead friend or his family and friends.
Why are some people so quick to just believe that if you are being questioned you must be guilty? The first accounts said the victim pulled a knife on the agents. We know that isn’t true now, but are we to believe a young man faced with trained FBI agents is going to try pulling a knife? Haven’t you heard never bring a knife to a gun fight? What FBI agent isn’t armed to the teeth better than the average person? I wish people would pull their heads out of their rear ends and think. Or is it that we intuitively know something is rotten in Denmark and don’t want to face it? Frankly, I am disgusted with the heavy hand of alphabet soup government agents getting a pass on dead suspects. How do we know the young man pulled a knife? The FBI says he did? The victims family certainly questions what happened:
Abdulbaki Todashev, the father of Ibragim Todashev, said during a news conference in Russia that his son was executed by the FBI to keep him from talking.
“I want justice, I want an investigation,” he said. “They come to your house like bandits, and they shoot you.”
“Maybe my son knew some sort of information that the police didn’t want to get out,” he added. “They shut him up. That’s my opinion.”
Ibragim Todashev was an acquaintance of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the alleged terrorist who was killed in Watertown, Massachusetts, following the Boston Marathon bombing. On May 22, we reported that Todashev was killed by the FBI during interrogation in Florida.
Khusn Taramiv, a friend of Todashev, told WESH-TV in Orlando that Todashev felt he would be shot by the FBI. “He felt inside he was going to get shot,” Taramiv said. “I told him, ‘Everything is going to be fine, don’t worry about it.’ He said, ‘I have a really bad feeling.”
The FBI initially claimed its agents had killed Todashev in self defense during questioning. On Wednesday, however, the agency said the Chechen was unarmed.
“Law enforcement officials said Todashev was in the process of confessing to a 2011 triple murder in Waltham, Mass., and was working on writing out the details of the crime when he snapped and turned violent,” WESH.com reported. “Officials said Todashev pushed a table and possibly threw a chair.”
“This is proof of cold-blooded murder,” Maxim Shevchenko, a journalist and a member of the presidential human rights council, said during the news conference in Moscow today.
Chechen lawyer Zaurbek Sadakhanov characterized the killing an extrajudicial execution. “Why was he interrogated three times without a lawyer? Why no recording? Why seven shots? And why should I believe their version? Why do American policemen believe they can do whatever they want?”
“We have confirmed through senior sources within the FBI that Ibragim was indeed unarmed when he was shot seven times in the head, what appear to be even in the back of the head,” Hassan Shibly, executive director of the CAIR Florida, told USA Today. “That’s very disturbing.”
At least the government is learning not to say people committed suicide via 3 bullets to the head anymore.
He looks like such a radical Muslim doesn’t he?
I hope your son doesn’t happen to know someone the government is going to claim commits a crime and kills before there can be a trial. I mean, this is just disgusting!
