“Kadyrbayev knew when he saw the empty fireworks that Tsarnaev was involved in the marathon bombing,” the affidavit reads. “Kadyrbayev decided to remove the backpack from the room in order to help his friend Tsarnaev avoid trouble.”
The three acted on April 18, three days after the bombing and hours after investigators aired surveillance footage identifying Tsarnaev and his older brother Tamerlan as the suspects in the bombing, though not by name, according to authorities. Phillipos first saw footage depicting Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the news Thursday, and told Kadyrbayev over the phone that he suspected their friend was the bomber. When Kadyrbayev later texted Tsarnaev and said he bore a resemblance to the subject of an intense manhunt, Tsarnaev allegedly sent back a chilling response: “Lol, You better not text me.” He also texted Kadyrbayev to say, “Come to my room and take whatever you want,” according to the affidavit.
The exchange came just before 9 p.m. on April 18, a few hours before the Tsarnaev brothers would carjack a Chinese immigrant, murder an MIT police officer and engage in a wild shootout with police through the streets of Cambridge and Watertown, police say. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died April 19, after a shootout hours after authorities showed the brothers on surveillance video and named them as suspects.
Although the three new suspects initially appear to have stonewalled authorities, Phillipos came clean in a fourth interview, conducted April 26. He confessed that the three took the backpack out of their friend’s dorm room, according to the affidavit. Phillipos allegedly told investigators that the two others “started to freak out” after seeing Tsarnaev identified on television.
Hear the Incredible Account of an Eyewitness Who Saw the Boston Bomb Suspect Running Over and Dragging His Own Brother to Escape
One of the few eyewitnesses to the pre-dawn police shootout between the Boston bombing suspects and police delivered a chilling and very raw account of the drama in a surprise call Friday morning to SiriusXM’s Opie & Anthony radio show.
The hosts seemed very skeptical at first (they get more than their fair share of prank callers), but as “Mike from Watertown” continued to relate what he saw — with some very specific details not yet heard or seen on the news — both Opie and Anthony felt that his story was not only legit, it was one of the very few eye-witness accounts.
Here are some of the incredible comments from the Watertown, Mass. resident:
”The sergeant was yelling — “Get down, get down!” “He’s got a bag of grenades! He’s got f**kin’ grenades!” “There’s a live ordnance on the streets!”
“I have never once arrested a member of the NRA”
I am a police officer in a large agency in Florida. I have served on the streets of this city for 16 years and have seen more than my share of “Gun Violence,” with several occasions where the bullets were intended for my head.
If a liberal read that, they would assume I am for total gun control. In reality, I – like most police officers in the country, am firmly against the joke and lie that liberals try to play off as a “means to make society safer.”
I have never once arrested a member of the NRA. I know you know this, but good people don’t use guns to victimize others. Good people use guns to protect themselves and others from the criminals who in most cases, get let off the hook by liberal judges and a liberal “Protect the defendants rights” mindset.
Gun control never works and never will, unless the politicians true purpose is to turn the citizens of a country into subjects of

One of Bloomberg’s ‘Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ Arrested For Trying to Force Man to Have Sex With Him at Gunpoint
Gay Mayor Schiliro, 38, allegedly ordered a local police officer to bring a 20-year-old male friend to his home, where the mayor plied him with alcohol, and made sexual advances which the man refused. Schiliro allegedly brandished several handguns and fired one of them into the floor in an apparent attempt to intimidate the young man, who reportedly was in fear of his life.
How many of you believe that the main purpose of your local police department is to protect and serve the people? I don’t recall what TV program it was, but some years back there was a program about policeman and in the introduction it always had the words, ‘to protect and serve.’
We were taught from the time were small children that if we are threatened by anyone we were to call 911 and asked them to dispatch the police. But is that the real function of the police department?
According to the US Supreme Court decision in Warren v. District of Columbia in 1981, the police do not have the duty to provide protection and services to individuals except under specific assignments.
In 1975 two men kicked in the back door of a rooming house in Washington DC. The men entered the second floor room the woman and her four-year-old daughter were. The men raped and sodomized the mother. Two women living on the third floor above heard the screams and call the police station. The dispatcher promised them that help would be on the way, and sent out a Code 2 call to officers in the area.
The two women crawled out of the window onto the roof and watched as several police cars arrived. One car patrolled the alley and another car parked out front and the officer approached the front of the house and knocked on the door. When no one answered the second officer left the scene. All four police officers left the area five minutes after arriving.
The two women crawled back into their room they could still hear the screams coming from the floor below and again call the police department. The dispatcher logged the call as ‘investigate the trouble’ which was never dispatched to any officers in the field.
Hoping in believing that police officers had entered the home the two women called down to the woman on the third floor. The two rapists heard the calls and confronted the women at knife point and took all three women back to their apartment and continued to sexually abuse, rape, rob and beat them for the next fourteen hours.
One of the women that lived upstairs, Carolyn Warren, filed a lawsuit against the local police department for how they handled the situation. In her lawsuit, Warren contended that the police dispatcher failed to forward the first call with the proper degree of urgency — Code 1 — which would have alerted officers of the danger occurring within the home. The second contention in the lawsuit was that when the officers did respond, they fail to follow proper police procedures by not checking the rear entrance or windows of the home. The third contention filed in the lawsuit stated that the dispatcher failed to notify officers in the field of the second call.
The case went all the way to the Supreme Court where in 1981 a 4 – 3 decision was rendered stating that since Warren did not have a special relationship with the police department that the police were not obligated to go beyond the measures they took to protect her and the other women. Basically the Supreme Court ruled that police are not obligated to or have any duty to the victims of criminal acts. The main function of the police department is to arrest criminals and investigate crimes.
That only leaves one legal source of defense for every individual and homeowner. That defense is guaranteed by the Second Amendment in the right to bear and keep arms. That’s why the town of Kennesaw, Georgia passed an ordinance in 1982 requiring all homeowners to own a firearm to be used for protection. The only exceptions were for religious beliefs, convicted felons or those who had a strong conscientious opposition to guns. Consequently Kennesaw, a suburb of Atlanta, has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation.
So if you want to protect yourself and your family, I wouldn’t count on the police but rather I would urge you to go out and purchase a firearm and learn how to use it. Then if anyone breaks into your house, you’ll have your protection right there in your hands and you won’t have to wait for police who may or may not show up to help.
Police Chief Bans Officers From Denny’s After Manager Tells Detective to Leave Her Gun in the Car or Leave
Gun sensitivity is certainly on the rise. And if you needed an example, look no further than Belleville, Ill., where a battle is brewing between local police officers and a Denny’s Restaurant after an on-duty detective who went inside was told that she either had to leave her firearm in the car or exit the establishment. In addition to voicing outrage at the alleged treatment, the Belleville police chief has since banned officers from eating at the diner.

A St. Paul, Minnesota family claims in a lawsuit that police officers who conducted a wrong-door raid on their home shot their dog, and then forced their three handcuffed children to sit near the dead pet while officers ransacked the home. The lawsuit, which names Ramsey County, the Dakota County Drug Task Force, and the DEA, and asks for $30 million in civil rights violations and punitive damages after a wrong-door raid, also claims that the officers kicked the children and deprived one of them of her diabetes medication.
The suit also alleges that one of the lead officers with the task force “provided false information” in order to get a warrant to raid the Franco family’s home. (That information being the Franco family’s address, and not that of their supposedly criminal neighbor Rafael Ybarra.)

Carlos Miller was arrested for filming the police. Resisting the pressure to accept a “deal,” he risked more prison time simply by insisting on his right to a jury trial. According to Miller, the prosecutor told the jury that Miller did not behave like a “real journalist” because a “real journalist” would have obeyed all police requests and orders. Miller’s attorney responded to that argument with the following:
“In this country, when you’re a journalist, your job is to investigate.
Not to be led by your hand where the police want you to see, so they can hide what they don’t want you to see.
No, when you’re a journalist, a real journalist, it’s your job to go find the truth. As long as you are acting within the law as Mr. Miller was, you have the right to demand and say, ‘no, I’m not moving, I have the right to be here. This is a public sidewalk, I have the right to be here.’
He did his job. He has the right to do his job the way he sees fit. It’s not up to these prosecutors to tell anybody, much less an independent journalist, how to do their job. It’s not up to the police officers, it’s not up to a judge or the president.
In this country, journalists do their job the way they see fit.
What’s he describing is Cuba. What he’s describing is a communist country. The government says you can’t be here because I say you can’t be here.
And it’s infuriating to me that a prosecutor would try to get up here and try to convince you that just because a police officer says something, that he has to bow his head and walk away.
That is a disgrace to the Constitution of this country.”
