And so goes the Broken, er, the Breaking News from all TV Stations.
And I thought they had one suspect in custody and another killed already.
Are they trying to put up a smokescreen on Tamerlan’s motive that he was cheated of an olympic career? Nah, just kidding. They don’t cheat on sports, not like the Canadian women’s soccer players do.
At any rate, I am going to play the Devil’s Advocate again on this particular post. I feel that everytime I do, things get rattled off faster than necessary.
The three are Dzhokhar’s close friends, as if he had more friends in this town. One is an American citizen and the other two are from Kazakhztan. These three gave false statements to the Police. The American will receive a light charge and the other two may get prison terms and/or be deported.
Tamerlan’s wife, an American converted to Islam, will be taken off the suspect’s list.
But here’s the rub—–the two Kazakhs will be charged as conspirators for being loyal to their friend, Dzhokhar.
Naturally, what would one expect? Between Dzhokhar and the people on the street whom they do not know and don’t care about, the Kazakhs would be loyal to a friend, at the spur of the moment. This is one effort to help a friend. Unfortunately, this was not the time for lying to help a friend, according to the police.
All the people of Boston, and all of the country, believed that at the first suspicious sign, they should have talked and turned Dzhokhar in. This is what may be called a wolf’s logic, meaning what is good for the pack is bad for the prey. What lies behind this logic is the tragic flaw of listening only to music which are ours and not to music which are theirs. Maybe the fault lies in not listening to them at all.
Musing over Tamerlan’s words, “I have no American friends. I do not understand them.’
And so the Devil may say, “Why should I be patriotic to a country of which I am not a citizen, not even a friend?”
(God forbid more bombings like this!)
