Marathon victims react to Tsarnaev's sister's arrest


BOSTON ( — The sister of the marathon bombing suspect allegedly threatened a woman her boyfriend is involved in a custody dispute with, and referenced a bomb. 

Ailiana Tsarnaeva allegedly threatened the mother of her boyfriend’s children by saying, “I know people who can put a bomb on you.”

Marathon bombing survivor Marc Fucarile described her alleged threats as “arrogant.”

"My six-year-old son says something to another boy, those are just words. She’s a grown adult you know, she can chose to use different words," he said.

Tsarnaeva eventually turned herself into police after making the threats, but the Fucarile’s say the damage has already been done. The bombs that Tsarnaeva’s bothers allegedly placed on Boylston Street during last year’s marathon changed the victims’ lives forever. Fucarile, for one, will live the rest of his life coping with operations and pain.

When asked what he would want Tsarnaeva to know about his road to recovery, he said he “didn’t think she’d care.”

"I don’t think there’s anything you could show her, you know, how I get ready in the morning, how I take a shower, how I have to play with my son now," he said.

The story is gaining national television coverage, which is causing some to ask if Tsarnaeva’s words could have an impact on the case against her brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Boston criminal defense attorney David Yannetti said it was a possibility.

"I think that at a minimum if you are defending Tsarnaev, you don’t like anything in the news that mentions the name Tsarnaev and bomb in the same sentence," he said.

Ailiana Tsarnaeva has been charged with aggravated harassment. She was released and is due in court in September. Fucarile says he hopes she has to serve some jail time so she is forced to think long and hard about why what she said is so insulting.

aliyaayila asked: I wonder if the other woman is using Alinias unfortunate situation against her and her children's father? Custody fights can be nasty and all that woman had to do was make a charge against her exs new girl and claim his home was dangerous for her kids. Just like that she now has custody.


You make a good point, this could all turn out to be made up bullshit by the boyfriend’s ex.  If not though, whoa!

good point

Boston bombers' sister in custody on reported bomb threat



The sister of the Boston Marathon bombers was busted Wednesday for threatening to blow up her live-in boyfriend’s baby mama, The Post has learned.

Aliana Tsarnaeva, who lives in North Bergen, N.J., allegedly phoned the other woman at her Harlem home on Monday and invoked the notorious terror attack last year that made her brothers infamous.

“Leave us alone. I know people who can put a bomb on you,” Tsarnaeva, 23, allegedly said.

Law-enforcement sources said Tsarnaeva’s boyfriend, George Briones, is currently embroiled in a bitter custody dispute with his ex over their three kids.

The woman told cops about Tsarnaeva’s call, and she turned herself in at the 30th Precinct, where she was being charged with aggravated harassment, the sources said.

According to the feds, Tsarnaeva’s brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar, planted the homemade explosives that killed three people and injured more than 260 others near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2012.

Tamerlan, 26, was killed in a shoot-out with cops while on the run with Dzhokhar, 21, who escaped but was later captured and is awaiting trial.

Tamerlan’s widow, Katherine Russell, was photographed Saturday holding a baby outside the home Aliana also shares with sister Bella, who was busted on pot charges following a domestic incident last year.

On Sunday, Aliana told The Post that Russell recently re-married and that the baby was hers.

You gotta be kidding me. I sure hope this isn’t true. This is the NY Post, tho. Awaiting confirmation from a more reliable source.


Anonymous asked: Bad Parenting: With the exception of some of the more rabid (in denial) supporters, that seems to be the one thing we ALL agree on. Zub and Anzor's atrocious parenting. I don't know why people expect the sisters to display anything other than poor judgment. Btw, everyone in this family has got a mug shot including "Karima". I really don't know what I would have done if I were in J's shoes. Ruslan out of the picture, no one to really confide in, etc. No excuse but I empathize.



Based on his interview with CNN, Uncle Ruslan really seemed to have had it with his older brother’s family. He tried to have some influence with Tamerlan, but he appeared to have been met with so much resistance he gave up and basically divorced himself from the entire family.  It is not clear in the CNN interview what the extent of his relationship with Jahar was.  I wonder if Jahar ever reached out to him for any kind of guidance at any time?

" It is not clear in the CNN interview what the extent of his relationship with Jahar was.  I wonder if Jahar ever reached out to him for any kind of guidance at any time?

I’ve thought about this, too. Though Ruslan came across in that interview as very grounded and normal, it seemed that even he mostly had paid attention to Tamerlan and less or no attention to the other kids. What was so fucking great about Tamerlan?! I guess as the oldest he probably would have received the most attention over all, but even so the distribution of attention seemed to have been ridiculously lopsided in that family.

When Jahar came to DC in  July 2012, Ruslan couldn’t be bothered to walk a couple hundred yards to say hi to him when he and his wife went to pick up the nephew Jahar had escorted on the train trip. I know he said he regretted that now, but to me that’s just strange not to say hi to a relative one hasn’t seen for 7 years. Likewise it’s odd to me that Jahar didn’t bother to go say hi to Ruslan. I think that after the falling out with the family and Tamerlan disrespecting him, Ruslan washed his hands of the whole lot of them. Yet somehow I believe that if Tamerlan had been there, Ruslan probably would have gone to say hi even in spite of their past falling out. Just a gut feeling.

As for Jahar reaching out to Ruslan, I very much doubt he did. Tamerlan probably told Jahar about their falling out, and Jahar probably accepted T’s POV on that, and combined with the fact that Anzor didn’t talk to Ruslan anymore, I can’t see why J would reach out to him.

If T and J had been Ruslan’s kids, I don’t think there would have been a BMB.

Anonymous asked: Does anyone know of J's sisters going back to school or getting their GED after the arranged marriages failed? Do they show any employment history or is it all sketchy and gov. Funded like the rest of the family?Strong work ethic doesn't seem to be in the Tsarnaev blood.I know A had a new baby and her hubby works hard but what bout B and her guy? Not tryin 2 b pryin but it would seem odd that. they would collect stuff still when everyone knows the fam now and is watchin them and their crime rec.




You probably already read it, but Howie Carr wrote in his Boston Herald column a few weeks ago that one of the sisters (think it was Bella) had been collecting benefits in Anzor’s name into 2013, which sounds like she has since stopped. I have no idea if the sisters have gotten their GED’s. If I knew them I’d encourage them to, but I know pursuing education can be difficult when you have little kids to raise.

I’m sorry I’m not much help in answering your questions about the sisters, but I don’t know all that much about them. I feel that while Jahar invited us all into his life by committing very public crimes that devastated people, his sisters did not. So while it’s unavoidable not to discuss his sisters at all when discussing Jahar, I try to minimize my discussion of them and the choices they make in their lives. Unless we were to find out they were involved in the bombing plot or had committed serious crimes themselves, they are not on trial here and they deserve as much privacy as realistically possible.

Shit like this pisses me off. What does it matter if they are getting benefits? People are small minded and care about families getting a couple hundred dollars instead of the politicians who rob tax payers blind. Just a couple weeks ago there was a story about a senator spending $100,000+ on coffee and pastries but y’all care about a family receiving money for basic shit they need to survive.

I have no problem with Bella or anyone else out there receiving benefits if they need them, and based on what little I know about Bella’s situation, she probably did. I don’t advocate people fraudulently obtaining benefits they don’t need or fraudulently obtaining far more than they’re entitled to, but I’m not against welfare. Frankly, I’m sick of Howie Carr picking every member of the Tsarnaev family apart as if he’s trying to determine whether any of them should have the right to exist. Would he like someone to pick his family apart during a time of hardship?

people don’t see human. they see sinner, religious, prostitute, thug, race, etc. all except human.
