Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Wrongfully Indicted

by Stephen Lendman

On June 27, federal grand jurors indicted him on 30 counts. They did so disgracefully.

Charges include:

• "use of a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death and conspiracy;

• bombing of a place of public use resulting in death and conspiracy;

• malicious destruction of property resulting in death and conspiracy;

• use of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence;

• use of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence causing death;

• carjacking resulting in serious bodily injury;

• interference with commerce by threats or violence; and

• aiding and abetting."

Murder, Inc. is official US policy. Previous articles explained. State-sponsored assassins kill.

They include FBI, CIA, DEA, police, and private military contractor operatives. They reign terror globally. They do so in US communities. They do it with impunity. They support wealth, power and privilege. They target freedom.

They're responsible for Boston Marathon bombings state terror. The official story's false. It doesn't wash. They killed killed Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He and Dzhokhar were set up. They were convenient patsies.

An image showed Tamerlan trying to surrender. He was lying prone with his arms outstretched. He held no weapon. None was near him. No blood was visible. He was murdered in cold blood. His body was riddled with bullets from head to toe.

Dzhokhar likely tried to surrender. Local and/or federal assassins tried to kill him. He was shot multiple times. He survived. A throat wound prevented him from speaking for weeks.

In late May, he did so for the first time. He called his mother in Dagastan. They had an emotional six-minute conversation. His wounds are healing. He can walk. He's much better now. He said he and Tamerlan are innocent.

They were set up. Police, FBI, other federal agencies, and private military contractor firm Clarity International bear full responsibility.

Obama heads rogue US governance. Justice is a four-letter word. Attorney General Eric Holder subverts it. He shames the office he holds. He does so in defense of privilege.

He enforces police state harshness. He defends the indefensible. He persecutes innocent victims. He wrongfully charges them. He reflects gross injustice. He belongs in prison, not high office.

"This indictment is the result of exemplary cooperation between federal prosecutors and a wide range of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to investigate the horrific attacks on the Boston Marathon two months ago," he said.

"The department is firmly committed to achieving justice on behalf of all who were affected by these senseless acts of violence."

"And today’s action proves our unyielding resolve to hold accountable - to the fullest extent of the law - anyone who would threaten the American people or attempt to terrorize our great cities."

"I would like to thank our law enforcement partners, the FBI, the Department’s National Security Division, the US Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts, and every investigator, agent, officer, attorney, analyst, and support staff member whose courage and commitment continues to make our communities and our nation safer."

FBI head Robert Mueller exceeds the worst of J. Edgar Hoover. Rule of law principles don't matter. They vanished entirely on his watch.

He's involved in unprecedented mass surveillance. He's perhaps responsible for all US terror plots. He entraps victims lawlessly. They're falsely charged. They're hung out to dry for state-sponsored crimes.

He wages war on Islam. He targeted numerous innocent Muslims.They're convenient US "enemies." They're vulnerable. They're guilty only of being in America at the wrong time. They committed no crimes. They're falsely charged. They're wrongfully imprisoned.

Praying to the wrong god is dangerous. In America, it's not tolerated. It risks persecution, false charges, prosecution, conviction and imprisonment. Victims are tortured. Some are murdered in cold blood.

"Today’s indictment is the result of the dedicated and collective efforts of law enforcement and intelligence partners, working with a sense of urgency and purpose to find those responsible for these deadly attacks," said Mueller.

"These continuing efforts reflect the pursuit of justice for those who lost their lives and for the scores of individuals who were injured."

Dzhokhar's indictment reflects police state injustice. It's harsh and unconscionable. He's wrongfully charged. Allegations claim he and Tamerlan "conspired to use improvised explosive devices (IEDs) against people, property, and places of public use."

It claims they did so among Boston Marathon spectators. Two bombs detonated moments apart. Three deaths resulted. Others were injured.

"The indictment alleges that the IEDs were constructed from pressure cookers, explosive powder, shrapnel, adhesives, and other items and were designed to shred skin, shatter bone, and cause extreme pain and suffering, as well as death."

It falsely claims both brothers "armed with five IEDs, a Ruger P95 semi-automatic handgun, ammunition, a machete, and a hunting knife, drove in their Honda Civic to the MIT campus, where they shot MIT Police Officer Sean Collier and attempted to steal his service weapon."

It charges them with Collier's death. They had nothing to do with it. They're falsely accused of "carjack(ing) a Mercedes and kidnapp(ing) the driver and forc(ing) him to drive to a gas station, robbing him of 0 along the way."

Allegedly the driver escaped. How wasn't explained. The entire story was invented. It's untrue. It doesn't wash.

It alleges both brothers drove to Watertown. Why there wasn't explained. They lived in Cambridge. Police allegedly tried to arrest them.

Their allegations only are told. Truth and full disclosure's suppressed. Lies, damn lies, and state-sponsored viciousness substitute. Media scoundrels go along. They repeat what demands condemnation. Doing so assures court of public opinion conviction.

DOJ claims both brothers fired at police and "used four additional IEDs against them." They allegedly drove their vehicle "directly at" police. Claiming it reads like bad fiction.

You can't make this stuff up. Authorities do out of whole cloth. It's done repeatedly. It's done to convict. Victims are hung out to dry. They're made to pay for state-sponsored crimes.

It's happens often. Thousands of political prisoners fill America's gulag. It's the world's largest. It's the shame of the nation.

It holds society's most disadvantaged. Corporate crooks and state-sponsored ones remain free. They plunder, ravage and murder egregiously. They do so with impunity.

They do it with the full faith, blessing, and encouragement of government. They do so maliciously. They do it willfully. They do it shamelessly. They do it repeatedly. They do it unapologetically. Innocent victims face false accusations. It's the American way.

Seventeen charges against Dzhokhar call for life in prison or capital punishment. Others authorize five years to life. On July 10, he'll be arraigned. He's already guilty by accusation.

US-style justice works that way. Trials are rigged. They're pro forma. Hanging judges preside. Jurors are intimidated to convict. Innocent victims are helpless.

Justice is systematically denied. It's a four-letter word. Police states operate this way. America's by far the worst. Dzhokhar at best faces life imprisonment.

He'll likely endure Supermax harshness. Perhaps in isolation. So-called "ultramax" cells have virtually no human contact, not even with guards.

They're for prisoners called "the worst of the worst." Allegedly they're considered too dangerous for general population circulation. They're for ones America imposes unconscionable harshness. It reflects monstrous viciousness.

DOJ's National Institute of Corrections calls Supermax prisons "highly restrictive, high-custody housing units within a secure facility."

They "isolate inmates from the general prison population and from each other due to grievous crimes, repetitive assaultive or violent institutional behavior, the threat of escape or actual escape from high-custody facilit(ies), or inciting or threatening to incite disturbances in a correctional institution."

States have their own facilities. Florence, CO is America's sole federal one. It's called "the Harvard" of US prisons. It's easier to get into. It's virtually impossible to escape.

They cost two to three times more than conventional prisons. They feature high-tech security. Walls, floors, ceilings and doors are built out of reinforced materials.

State-of-the-art electronic systems minimize or prevent guard-inmate contact. Moving prisoners requires multiple officers.

They're confined in windowless single cells 23 hours a day. They measure about 7 by 12 feet. They have a shower and concrete bed.

They have virtually no work, social contact, education, recreation, rehabilitation or personal privacy.

They're electronically monitored 24 hours a day. Many have no human contact. Others have little. They spend years up to life this way.

It's intolerable. It violates Eight Amendment protection. It's cruel and unusual punishment. It destroys mind, body and spirit.

Prisoners experience severe anxiety, panic attacks, lethargy, insomnia, nightmares, dizziness, irrational anger, confusion, memory and appetite loss, hallucinations, suicidal thoughts, paranoia, and profound despair and hopelessness.

They're entombed. They're caged like wild animals. Normal prisoners become sociopaths. Strong-willed ones break. Longterm isolation creates monsters. Many suffer irreversible trauma. Some go mad.

Dzhokhar's future looks grim. Conviction is certain. He'll join America's living dead. He'll do so out of sight and mind. Innocence can't save him. US-style criminal injustice works this way.
