With the caveat that this guy clearly didn't know his nephews terribly well and hadn't spoken to them in years, the bombing suspects' Uncle Ruslan Tsarni is making for some interesting interviews. From CBS:
Tsarni says Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev immigrated to the United States around 2000 or 2001, and have lived at the same Cambridge address since that time.
According to Tsarni, Dzhokhar completed high school in Cambridge and was attending college somewhere outside of Boston.
Tsarni, who says he hasn’t been in touch with the brothers since around 2009, tells WBZ-TV he believes that the brothers’ parents may have moved back to Russia.
He described Tamerlan as a “loser.”
It's worth remembering that most losers don't kill 8-year-old boys and young women, or maim dozens. But he goes on to say that his nephews brought shame on the family and deserve death for their actions. He offered condolences to "those who’ve been murdered, those who’ve been injured.” He called on his nephew to turn himself in and had a theory for why all this happened:
“Being losers, hatred to those who were able to settle themselves; those are the only reasons,” he said. “Anything else to do with religion, with Islam, it’s a fraud; it’s a fake.”
Ruslan told reporters that the two bombing suspects wasted an opportunity for a great life.
“This is the ideal micro-world in the entire world,” he said of the United States. “I respect this country. I love this country; this country which gives chances to everybody else to be treated as a human being.”
