The New Truth About the Cop Shot in Watertown: Friendly-Fire in a Getaway
 TheAtlanticWire ^ | April 07, 2013 | Alexander Abad-Santos

Posted on Tuesday, May 07, 2013 3:05:07 PM by Daffynition

The way the nation met 33-year-old MBTA Transit Police officer Richard Donohue was like much of the conflicting information from that night of mayhem in Watertown, Massachusetts violent, fast, and scary: He was exchanging fire with the Tsarnaev brothers, the story went, and he took a gun shot to his right thigh from the Boston bombing suspects an injury that would see Donohue lose all of his own blood, sever three blood vessels, send him into cardiac arrest, and almost die. Now comes a more complete picture, with more eyewitnesses telling a new story, that Donohue was probably shot by a fellow police officer.

The Boston Globe has a long story in today's paper with new accounts from Watertown residents who witnessed "the climactic moment in the confrontation, when Dzhokhar Tsarnaev drove between two groups of police officers amid police gunfire" in the early morning of April 19. Jane Dyson lives less than 200 feet from where Donohue went down:


 "A black SUV appeared, and rapid gun fire was focused on the vehicle," Dyson wrote in a statement provided to the Globe, referring to the vehicle Tsarnaev allegedly drove in his escape. "It appeared to me that an individual at the corner [of the street] fell to the ground and had probably been hit in the gunfire."

Interesting, I hadn't heard that CT.

It's a tough situation and we have soldiers who have to deal with this shit as well.  I doubt it can ever be eliminated.  Just try and learn from the experience and move on.  Worst case, they charge him with one less attempted murder.

The charges against the younger brother is in itself extremely revealing.

Why is he not charged with murder? accessory to murder etc. etc. etc.?

He is charged with "possessing a weapon of mass destruction"

So what does that mean? That GWB sent the military into Iraq in a desperate search for pressure cookers? Roll Eyes

No, that's not what he's charged with.

Did they add additional charges?  What is he charged with?
Main stream news up here says he's charged with possessing weapons of mass destruction.  Huh
