Tsarnaev was seen wearing an orange prison jumpsuit with a black T-shirt underneath. On his left arm he was also wearing what appeared to be a cast.
Mass media outlets received a “no cameras” memo reminding them of a ban on filming the arraignment of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev yesterday. Instead they had to make do with supplied courtroom sketches. Despite the ban on cameras in the courtroom, one news outlet from Russia either never got the memo or chose to ignore it!
Russian news channel Rossiya 24 briefly filmed Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in his first court appearance on Wednesday despite a US Federal Court ban on any kind of filming inside the courtroom. While Americans were only allowed to see cartoon sketches of the 19 year old killer, other countries citizens saw these quick video shots of him. NewsBall.com has that footage for you now which is the ONLY video of 19 year old Dzhokar since his arrest following a city-wide manhunt :
The video was reportedly taken down by vesti.ru by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday (7/12) shortly after it was made available on the Web. However here at NewsBall – it will remain.
Dzhokhar had been in a prison hospital since he was arrested, after suffering from gunshot wounds that at one point would not allow him to speak.
However, the young Tsarnaev did speak – & smile – in a Federal Court in South Boston Wednesday, where no cameras are ever allowed in the courtroom. He told the judge seven times that he was not guilty of 30 charges ranging from carjacking to using a weapon of mass destruction to murder 3 people. His older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev , was killed in a police shootout after the brother’s killed an MIT Security Guard following the bombings. The leaked photo of Tamerlan’s dead body is here. *WARNING* Extremely Graphic.
There was also a great deal of curiosity surrounding Dzhokhar’s appearance. For starters, in his pictures from before the bombing, and in the testimony of those who knew Dzokhar, he does not match the stereotypical image of a cold-hearted killer or an impassioned Jihadist. Also, he was reportedly suffering from wounds so severe that he could not talk (conspiracy theorists claim he was silenced from talking by our government), which barred him from cooperating initially with police, yet reporters said that there were no visible wounds. With the video above however, we see his arm in a cast.
John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse in Boston, MA issued this statement:
“”The Court is investigating the surreptitious recording of yesterday’s arraignment that was made off a television monitor in a public overflow area. All photography and other recording in the courthouse is a clear violation of our rules and the conditions that restrict the issuance of our media credentials. When the investigation is complete, any member of the media that is found to be responsible for this recording will be subject to appropriate sanctions, which may include having their press credentials revoked.”
Investigating? Oh get off your power tripping high horse. It’s not rocket science – what the hell are you going to investigate? We applaud the Russian news outlet for their leak. Since we do not have a press credential – nor want one – we are not afraid of the court’s wrath. This article & video, will NOT be removed. Censorship must end. Americans only being supplied with this cartoon drawing of the Boston Bomber & Killer in the courtroom is unacceptable:
On a related topic, we encourage all audiences of the general public inside courtrooms to either sneak out pictures of jurors, or recognize their local fellow citizens serving on high profile juries & send us a tip as to their name & pics as we expand our uncensored features here on NewsBall.com
In any high profile jury there is always going to be a friend or neighbor of someone on that jury. It is our ultimate goal for NewsBall.com to become enough of a household name that at least 1 in 5 people knows of us to send in tips of the identities of jury members, as well as underage suspects & accusers in any reported news story that are not being named by the mass media so we can realize our ambitious dreams of bringing you truly uncensored news.
