My friends know never to ask me to borrow money or guns!

Phillipos grew up in the same Cambridge apartment complex as Stephen Silva, who was arrested last month for selling heroin and for possessing a firearm with an obliterated serial number in February 2013. The Ruger model P95 is believed to be the same gun the Tsarnaevs allegedly used to shoot and kill MIT officer Sean Collier.

“He basically let him use it but having no idea what he was going to do with it, and next thing you know, he’s a terrorist,” said a friend of Silva’s who asked not to be named.

That’s right my friends, don’t ask me to borrow money or guns!! Too funny!

In my case, I don’t have any of either one, so that nips it in the bud.

How fucked up is the justice system that Aza could do more time though? That just seems incredibly unfair especially since Dias took the lead and is probably the main reason they're in this mess in the first place (besides Jahar ofc). That speedy trial did Aza no favors that's for sure.

Yeah, I suspect a heated conversation between Aza’s parents and his attorneys may be taking place right now!  If he ends up serving more time that is abso-fucking-lutely ridiculous.  Gah.  Now we wait until October 16th and see what happens with Aza’s sentencing.

Best case scenario, Robel is able to cut a deal and gets time served.  He has the advantage of being high as fuck or sleeping and was out of the loop when the decisions were being made to retreive and remove Jahar’s crap from the dorm room.  Dias and Aza were speaking in Russian and from what we’ve heard so far it sounds like Robel was very much in the background and not that involved in the process.

But Robel is charged with lying to investigators about whether he was in the dorm room with Dias and Aza. He is not charged with destroying evidence.

The FBI alleges that Robel obstructed the investigation by repeatedly lying to interrogators before admitting that he had been in the dorm room and saw Dias take the backpack and the laptop.

Of course they didn’t record the interrogation, they only have their notes, but that didn’t seem to bother Aza’s jury. In Aza’s trial, one FBI agent had trouble with his recall during testimony, had to be nudged back on track by prosecutor, but that still didn’t bother the jury.

Police departments all over the US record their interviews, most with video. The worst terror attack on US soil since 9/11, but we don’t bother recording interrogations? Tells me that the FBI wants to be able to mold and tailor their agents’ testimony to fit their needs.

Problem with that: the Feds don’t get to decide who is guilty, only the jury does. To do that, the jury needs to see and hear the evidence. Why the FBI does not allow interrogations to be recorded, it is their policy, THAT should have been an issue in Aza’s trial, or any defendants.

Anonymous said: A federal prison is going to be a lot more harsh than where Dias/Aza are now I would think. I hope they take into consideration time served.

patsysvodka:

I hope so too.  I mean really, are these two ever going to be in this situation again?  I realize the government is sending a message that they’re tough on people who aid terrorists, but they’ve learned their lesson and deportation and permanent expulsion from the US is enough punishment.

I wondered if Dias would plead guilty, after Azamat’s conviction. There probably was a plea deal, but we won’t know the terms until tomorrow.

I initially thought they both might be sentenced to time served and deported, but they may have to testify at the Tsarnaev trial. Jahar told them (allegedly) that he knew how to make a bomb and that it would be a good thing to die a martyr.

We used to kick it, we used to just stay up all night, we use see each other at the gym, we used to see each other at res, we used to fishbowl. Now you’re a criminal, now you’re a murderer, now you’re a terrorist. Is this all true? What went wrong? I hope the truth will surface. It still haven’t hit me yet. You were just a normal college kid
