MAKHACHKALA, Russia (Reuters)- The parents of the two main suspects in the Boston bombings said on Thursday their sons had been framed and accused U.S. authorities of killing the older brother to put on a display.

Anzor Tsarnaev, the father, banged the table in anger as he announced plans to go from Russia to the United States to "find out the truth" and Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, the mother, said she had wanted to scream when she heard of her elder son's death.

She denied Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, had made contact with Islamist militants during a stay in Russia last year and said she was considering giving up her U.S. citizenship.

"I wanted to scream to the whole world,'What did you do?' What have you done with my son? He was alive. Why did you need to kill him? Why didn't you send him to Guantanamo or whatever? Why? Why?," she shouted at a new conference, her voice cracking.

"It is some kind of show, spectacle," she said, adding that she wanted her son buried in Russia, where he has roots.

Wearing a black head scarf, she spoke in accented English as she maintained her belief her sons were victims of a conspiracy.

"Politics is a dirty business. I don't know in whose interest this was. I only know one thing, that my children didn't do this."

She recounted that she had called Tamerlan after the bombing and he had told her not to worry.

He was shot dead by police in a firefight four days after the bombings at the Boston Marathon which killed three people and wounded 264.

His brother Dzhokhar, 19, was captured after a manhunt. He has been charged with crimes that carry a possible death penalty and is now in hospital being treated for his wounds.

Pounding the table with his fists, Anzor Tsarnaev said: "I am going to the United States. I want to say that I am going there to see my son, to bury the older one. I don't have any bad intentions. I don't plan to blow up anything."

"I am not angry at anyone. I want to go find out the truth," said Anzor, his eyes hidden behind dark glasses.

He said he would go as soon as possible but that he had not yet bought a plane ticket.

Of course they were framed. They carjacked a man, shot it out with cops and killed again to prove their innocence. Wake the hell up mom, they are criminals!

My opinion, they did not act alone. Everyday, more poo poo comes out. I won't be, yet will be shocked when all is said and done. If that were my kid lying in that hospital bed, you wouldn't have to worry about a trial, I would take care of it myself...

If they're savvy enough to leverage the mental conspiracy theory crowd they'll be in the news for ages.

Which is a bit of a shame if you're looking for a larger, cultural context engaged, introspective discourse.

But pretty great if you just want to grab some popcorn and watch the crazy and daft face off.

It's called denial, and it's pretty universal. Nobody wants to believe that someone they love is capable of doing something awful. I'll grant that the bomber's mom has an extreme case--still, it happens a lot:

"The mother of Florida neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman has written a letter to the public that criticizes the justice system for her son's arrest in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

"Gladys Zimmerman's letter was written to coincide with the one-year anniversary of her son's April 11, 2012, arrest. He's accused of killing Martin, who was unarmed, in February 2012.

"The letter was written in Spanish and translated by her son, Robert Zimmerman. He released it on his Twitter account.

"Gladys Zimmerman says the day will "forever be remembered by the Zimmerman family as the day the justice system failed us as Americans.""

The man's heritage is irrelevant.

But Zimmerman and his brother both self-identified as "white" on multiple documents--including driver's license and arrest records.

And BTW, many suggest that the "translation" is just cover for the fact that Robert (or George) most likely wrote the letter.

You really have a sick obsession with hating that entire family, all over the demise of a scummy black thug.

Or, you and Reader can just head home together after your Stonewall/NAACP meeting and compare post menopausal night sweats.

Sad and sorry that you have taken on their defense. Have you not been paying attention lately?

From the Washington Post:

Saturday morning, Robert sent an image to the NAACP and the NRA, among others, with two images side by side. One is of De'Marquise Elkins, 17, one of two teenagers accused of fatally shooting a 13-month-old baby. The other is of Trayvon Martin, who was fatally shot on February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida. Both are holding up their middle fingers. The words on Zimmerman's Photoshop job read "a picture is worth a thousand words any questions?"

Let's set aside the obvious idiocy in comparing a victim to a killer and really take a look at what Zimmerman was trying to do. A subsequent tweet said this: "Lib media shld ask if what these2 black teens did 2 a woman&baby is the reason ppl think blacks mightB risky." To clarify that, he seemes to be saying that the liberal media should ask if what these two teens [are accused of] doing to Sherry West and her son, is it reasonable for people to think that all black people are dangerous?

The answer, clearly, is no. But what truly gives me the chills, is that this entire argument is based on the premise that because blacks look different than others, they should be considered dangerous at all times. This is not casual segregation based on ignorance, or even an effort to oppose interracial marriage. It's a flat out discriminatory point of view that is justified by tapping into a primal fear that was considered the norm at a time when people considered it reasonable to make sweeping assumptions about entire races of people.
