Mayor on Suspect’s Condition: ‘Who Cares’

Boston Mayor Tom Menino didn’t mince words when asked about the marathon bombing suspect currently under heavy guard at Beth Israel Hospital after Friday’s manhunt. “Who cares,” Menino answered reporters when asked about the man’s condition. When asked about the condition of the MBTA officer who was injured during Friday’s manhunt, Menino was softer in his response. “He’s showing some improvement. It’s encouraging to us,” he said. The mayor was attending a celebration marking the grand opening of Spaulding Rehabilitation Network’s new hospital in the Charlestown Navy Yard Saturday night and spoke to reporters prior to the event. When asked about the events of the past week, Menino said, “This city has never worked more efficiently than it has the past week.” He commended public safety personnel, city workers, businesses and residents for their cooperation during the citywide shelter-in-place order on Friday. “We can’t forget what those individuals did or what they tried to do,” he said of the suspects.  Asked when residents could expect Boylston Street to reopen, the mayor said he did not know and that the FBI was still investigating the scene. “We’re still waiting for the FBI to release Boylston Street to us,” he said, adding that it should take 12 hours once the scene was released to the city to make it ready for public access again.  South End Patch

Bomb Suspect Hospitalized in Serious Condition

The Boston Marathon bombings suspect captured in Friday’s manhunt remains in serious but stable condition at Beth Israel Hospital, WCVB reports. Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said Friday evening that Tsarnaev was taken to a hospital in serious condition, covered in blood. Davis said officials assumed his injuries occured during the gunfight in Watertown the evening before. Shots were fired at the boat where Tsarnaev was found hiding, but officials did not know if Tsarnaev was hit. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev cannot be interrogated due to his condition, WCVB also reported. “We always want to take all the suspects alive, so we can find out what happened, why it happened and hold them for justice,” Davis said Friday night. The other suspect in the bombings and Tsarnaev’s brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died early Friday morning after post-midnight gunfight. Hospital officials said Tamerlan Tsarnaev was in traumautic arrest when he was brought to the hospital, suffering from a combination of a potential blast injury and gunshot wounds. Physicians spent about 10-15 minutes trying to recesitate him. He was pronounced dead at 1:35 a.m. at Beth Israel Hospital, the same hospital where his brother is now under armed guard and that treated 24 bombing victims, including 12 who were still hospitalized as of Friday morning.
