BOSTON — Slain Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was named as a participant in an earlier triple homicide by a man who was subsequently shot to death while being questioned by authorities, according to a filing made by federal prosecutors in the case against his brother, surviving bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

According to the filing made Monday, Ibragim Todashev told investigators Tamerlan Tsarnaev participated in a triple slaying in Waltham on Sept. 11, 2011.

In that case, three men were found in an apartment with their necks slit and their bodies reportedly covered with marijuana. One of the victims was a boxer and friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Todashev, a 27-year-old mixed martial arts fighter, was fatally shot at his Orlando home during a meeting with an FBI agent and two Massachusetts state troopers in May, authorities said. He had turned violent while being question, according to authorities.

But the truth is that the circumstances of Todashev’s murder were never settled:

[Written in Aug 2013] Earlier this summer, the FBI shot and killed Ibragim Todashev at his Orlando, Florida, apartment, where he was being questioned by law-enforcement officials. Afterward, police sources gave wildly conflicting accounts of what happened just before his death: Some said he was unarmed but agitated; others said he was armed, but disagreed about the weapon. Did he reach for a gun? A samurai sword? A knife? A metal pole? A broomstick? Every news report seemed to tell a different story. The FBI wouldn’t go on record with an official version of events, and was unusually tight-lipped about the case, even as the dead man’s grieving father speculated that his son was murdered. The ACLU, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and various newspaper editorial boards called for an independent investigation, in part because when the FBI investigates itself, its agents are basically always found blameless for fatal shootings.

 

Then the story faded from national headlines.

 

Two and a half months later, the FBI has yet to release the results of its investigation. The Boston GlobeOrlando Sentinel, and CAIR have kept pressing for answers. It’s time that the rest of us rejoin them. Perhaps the FBI will ultimately produce evidence that clears those present of culpability. Until then, America’s federal police force has killed a man, clammed up, and offered no answers for going on three months!

Priority one should be multiple competing investigations. “Massachusetts and Florida both have an interest in the case,”The Boston Globepoints out.
The shooting happened in Florida, and two Massachusetts State Police troopers were present.” As Maria Sacchetti, a reporter following the case, has reported, “Jeffrey L. Ashton, the top prosecutor in Orlando … is reviewing witness and forensic evidence from the US Department of Justice’s
preliminary investigation …”

Boston Globe columnist Joan Vennochi is upset that Massachusetts officials aren’t following suit:

    Given the involvement of Massachusetts law enforcement, the American Civil Liberties Union asked Attorney General Martha Coakley to launch an independent investigation. The AG turned down the request. What happened in Florida was out of her jurisdiction, Coakley said. That was fine with Governor Deval Patrick.    

Talk about curious.

When a state police sergeant released photos showing the capture of accused Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Patrick acknowledged that rules were broken and the matter was quickly investigated. But when two state troopers are involved in a shooting death that is connected to the Marathon bombing, Patrick has nothing to say and defers to Coakley.

Take time to read the rest at http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/08/why-its-vital-to-get-the-truth-about-ibragim-todashevs-killing/278664/

As we learned this month [Oct. 2o13] with the outright lie the Dallas Police said justifying shooting an unarmed mentally ill man despite clear video evidence contradicting their report [http://www.wfaa.com/news/crime/Not-our-finest-hour-228864951.html], there is a shadow element within law enforcement that is very capable of not being forthcoming and honest. Here’s what the Guardian had to say:

Did the FBI execute Ibragim Todashev? He appears to have been shot seven times while being interviewed at home in Orlando, Florida, about his connection to one of the Boston bombing suspects. Among the shots was the assassin’s hallmark: a bullet to the back of the head. What kind of an interview was it?

An irregular one. There was no lawyer present. It was not recorded. By the time Todashev was shot, he had apparently been interrogated by three agents for five hours. And then? Who knows? First, we were told, he lunged at them with a knife. How he acquired it, five hours into a police interview, was not explained. How he posed such a threat while recovering from a knee operation also remains perplexing.

 

At first he drew the knife while being interviewed. Then he acquired it during a break from the interview. Then it ceased to be a knife and became a sword, then a pipe, then a metal pole, then a broomstick, then a table, then a chair. In one account all the agents were in the room at the time of the attack; in another, all but one had mysteriously departed, leaving the remaining officer to face his assailant alone.

 

In his speech two days after Todashev was killed, President Obama maintained that “our commitment to constitutional principles has weathered every war“. But he failed to explain which constitutional principles permit him to authorise the killing of people in nations with which the US is not at war. When his attorney general, Eric Holder, tried to do so last year, he got himself into a terrible mess, ending with the extraordinary claim that “‘due process’ and ‘judicial process’ are not one and the same … the constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process”. So what is due process if it doesn’t involve the courts? Whatever the president says it is?

 

Er, yes. In the same speech Obama admitted for the first time that four American citizens have been killed by US drone strikes in other countries. In the next sentence, he said: “I do not believe it would be constitutional for the government to target and kill any US citizen – with a drone, or a shotgun – without due process.” This suggests he believes that the legal rights of those four people had been respected before they were killed.
