A police SUV is towed away from the scene where Tamarlan Tsarnaev was run over. According to Ed Deveau, the Watertown police chief, one of his sergeants used this vehicle as a "battering ram" and drove right into the melee and then jumped out of the SUV and kept it in gear as it rolled on toward the suspects.
The report added that the Watertown police SUV had its rear window shot out and had "a little wound" in front, which would be the case if it was used as a battering ram to run over the 26-year-old man. So, is this police SUV the real vehicle that ran Tamarlan over? Is the police story meant to hide the fact that someone used the vehicle to kill Tamarlan? Is the police story all a big lie?
From the beginning, I found the the official explanation that Dzhokhar ran over his own brother and was able to flee from the police hard to believe. It simply did not make sense that the 19-year-old Dzhokhar could just drive away from hordes of police with their weapons drawn and high-powered cop cruisers at hand. Furthermore, there were no reports of a police chase using vehicles.
The official story that Dzhokhar had run his brother over and then just driven away from the scene of a massive police shoot-out simply does not make sense. There is no way he could get away so easily from hordes of police that had their weapons drawn and cars ready.
The following eyewitness testimony to a Boston radio show on Friday, April 19, makes much more sense:
She described seeing the first suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, run over by a police SUV and then mortally wounded by multiple police gun shots.
