Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, the mother of Boston Marathon alleged bombers Tamerlan and Tzhokhar Tsarnaevso, appears to be wanted for theft in the United States — a charge that could make her interview with authorities more complex for any lawyer. She failed to appear on a theft charge in Massachusetts in October. The looming charges appear to be one of the reasons for her reluctance to return to the United States.
The legal status of Zubeidat Tsarnaeva is uncertain. From court records she would appear in violation of a court order to appear to answer two counts of malicious/wanton damage and defacement to property. In June, she stole $1,600 worth of clothing from a Massachusetts Lord & Taylor store. She was due in court on October 25, but never showed up. It is not clear if a bench warrant was issued after her non-appearance.
To make matters worse, she was captured in a religious rant on CNN when called about her son: “If they are going to kill him. I don’t care. My oldest son is killed, so I don’t care. I don’t care if my youngest son is going to be killed today. I want the world to hear this. And, I don’t care if I am going to get killed too. And I will say Allahu Akbar!“ It appears that, like her oldest son, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva has become more religious in recent years. It is a chilling insight into those who replace conventional maternal and moral values with extreme religious views. I realize that she is clearly distraught but this is a pretty unnerving response.
The use of religion at such moments strikes many faithful people as curious like the recent people convicted of stealing parking fees who noted that they would not steal during Ramadan. Of course, in nations committed to Sharia law like Saudi Arabia, stealing $1,600 worth of clothes commonly would result in having your hand cut off.
