The heartbroken parents of the Boston bombings suspects refuse to believe that their ‘angelic’ sons could possibly be cold-hearted killers. Here, read how they emotionally defend the sons they believe are innocent.
First, the suspects’ father Anzor Tsarnaev called his son “a true angel.” Now, both Anzor and the suspects’ mother Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva are positive that their sons Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were set up by the secret service.
Anzor Tsarnaev — Suspects’ Father Denies Sons Are Terrorists
Anzor revealed that he thinks the secret service is behind it all, in an interview by the Russian Agency Interfax on April 19:
I learned about the incident from TV. My opinion is the [secret] service has framed my children, because they are practicing Muslims. Why did they kill Tamerlan? He was supposed to be caught alive. The younger is on the run now. He was a sophomore at a medical school in the U.S. We expected him to come home for vacation. Now I don’t know what’s going to happen. Tell you once again: I believe the [secret] service has framed my children.
Anzor got extremely angry during an interview with The Associated Press, yelling, “leave me alone, my son’s been killed!”
He explained that he spoke with Tamerlan right after the terrorist attack in Boston, asking him if he was ok. “Dad, do not worry, we did not go there. All are alive and well,” he said his son told him.
Tamerlan & Dzhokhar’s Family Speaks Out
Anzor’s sister, the suspects’ aunt, Maret Tsarnaev told AP that her brother had high hopes for his sons.
We’re talking about three dead people, 100-something injured, and I do not believe, I just do not believe our boys would do that … I don’t know them in the way that they could be capable of this.
She also added that Tamerlan has a Christian wife in Boston, so “you can’t tie it to religion.” However, Anzor has not yet been to America “because it’s not easy.”
Additionally, she explained that her nephew Tamerlan had “started praying five times a day,” about two years ago, although not a devout practicing Muslim.
Suspects’ Mother: The FBI Was Scared Of Tamerlan
The boys’ mother Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva also believes her sons were set up, she told RT, a Russian English channel.
This is a set up, my son would never ever carry out such terror attack. FBI knew everything what my son was doing, told me he was serious leader, that they were afraid of him. Neither of them have ever talked about what they are saying now. Nobody talked about the terrorism. My oldest son used to tell me everything. It’s impossible for them to do such things. It’s impossible, they’ve been set up. If there was anyone who knows it would be me.
Zubeidat also has a criminal record — in 2012, she was charged with two counts of malicious property damage, and larceny after stealing $1,624 worth of designer clothing from Lord & Taylor.
Dzhokhar is currently still at large, and authorities are doing all they can to secure the situation.
