Photo taken during the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings
In case you forgot, two bombs exploded at the finish line during the 2013 Boston Marathon in April this year. 3 people were killed and 264 were injured in the blasts. After video and surveilance camera footage was examined by investigators from the FBI, brothers Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were identified as the two persons who were responsible for this and a huge manhunt ensued.
During a shootout with the police, Tamerlan was shot and run over by his brother, but his brother escaped. Eventually Dzhokhar was apprehended on the 19th April 2013 in the Watertown district. The brothers also allegedly hijacked an SUV and killed a Boston police officer while they were being pursued by authorities.
The 2013 Boston Marathon bombings reminds us that there are people in the world that want to hurt us. It doesn’t matter if you believe that these two Chechen brothers were solely responsible for this act or if this was a false flag operation orchestrated against the US population to scare them into giving up more of their rights – it’s still an act of terror, something that the world can do without in this day and age.
Photographer John Tlumacki took this photo minutes after the 2013 Boston Marathon blasts and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo for today. He had not seen the officer’s gun until he edited the photos.
