From Controversial Times: In a message posted to a foreign social media website, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, the mother of convicted Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev railed against the United States and called her son the “best of the best” following his convictions on 30 counts relating to the bombing.
According to Vocativ:
Vocativ discovered the post, written in Russian, in a support group on VKontakte, the Russian social media site. The sister of the family friend, Timur Raduyev, also sent the message to Vocativ. Raduyev said in VK messages to Vocativ that he posted the mom’s words to the support group.
In part, the messsage reads:
“I will never forget it. May god bless those who helped my son. The terrorists are the Americans and everyone knows it. My son is the best of the best.”
‘May God reward them for supporting my precious boy,’ she continued.
Tsarnaev was found guilty of all 30 counts he was charged with yesterday. Over a dozen of those charges could carry the death penalty. The same jury that convicted him will now decide if he will face the death penalty or life in prison during the second phase of the trial.
