Good Lord. Suspected Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has a dang fan club. From The Gothamist:
As Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev arrived at court today, about a dozen supporters—yes, supporters—were there waiting to cheer him on, holding signs and demanding his release. The Boston Globe reports that some were chanting “Justice for Dzhokhar’’ and “Give him his freedom back” as a white van bearing Tsarnaev pulled up.
NYC resident Karina Figueroa, 35, told the Boston Globe that she believes Tsarnaev is wrongly accused. “I’ve seen a lot of videos showing inconsistencies,’’ said Figueroa. “They are framing him, I believe. I want him to be exonerated.’’ On behalf of everyone else in America, one counter-protester shouted at the group, “You guys are a bunch of scumbags.”
After a quick perusal of the combox, I learned that Aurora, Colorado Movie Madman James Holmes has his own bizarre legion of fans. I don’t get it.
