Boston Bombing Suspect Hated America Yet Lived Off Of US Government Funded Welfare For Most Of His Life

new details on tamerlan tsarnaevs wife katherine russell emerge  opt

It's obviously an overwhelmingly difficult task to understand what drives someone to commit acts of violence, especially when it's on a mass scale like the recent attacks in Boston…

But even though the main suspect in the bombings was apparently driven by feelings of Islamist extremism and anti-Americanism, new reports claim that he was a recipient of US government funded welfare for a majority of his life.

Not only did Tamerlan Tsarnaev, his wife, and his child benefit from welfare up until last year, Tamerlan and his younger brother (and suspected co-conspirator) Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were also supported by welfare as children.

We wonder if Tamerlan — who was no doubt sick in the head — ever made the connection that it was because of an American policy that he was able to have a roof over his head and food to eat as a youth AND as a father.

Just… SO f*cked up.

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikStephen Colbert

Monday’s Boston bombings marked yet another horrible day in this country’s history. What’s more, it’s two days later, and we’re still not in the clear.
