Anonymous asked: Could he have used a pencil tho? It looks like pencil to me.

idk man, boats usually have either a porous or slick surface on the inside neither of which are conducive for writing on with a pencil OR a pen tbh. a sharpie would work, but it doesn’t look like sharpie to me. i would buy it being on the floor of the boat while he was laying down but the bullet holes wouldn’t be there, so idk.

Isn’t there blood running along the paper, doesn’t that kind of insinuate that he would have to be lying down for the blood to trickle along the paper like that? Idk. And then how would the bullets penetrate the paper?

it was written on the actual wall of the boat, that’s what’s so weird about it to me. idk how you could write that straight on the wall of a boat, what position would you have to be in? like, if you have ever tried to put a paper against the wall and write on it, it’s difficult. it’s difficult to even write on an actual wall, lol, so idk how you’d do it on a boat in the dark (it’s still dark under the tarp even if it’s daylight) while wounded.

A thin white tarp like that would probably let a fair bit of sunlight through. I have a navy blue tarp in my backyard so my bunnies don’t overheat in the sun. It creates shade, but doesn’t completely block out the light.

Anonymous asked: if u believe the note is real plz explain how u think J was able to write on the fiber glass as others have pointed out already & also how he could when he was shot in the hand he used to write with. thx

I love how everyone on here is suddenly an expert about the difficulty of writing on boats. If you have a permanent marker then you can write on pretty much anything. If it was a fibreglass boat with a matte surface interior then a normal ballpoint pen should suffice.

And you’re assuming that he already had a hand injury when he wrote the note. Remember that he was shot at in two separate incidents (the shootout with Watertown police, and then again while he was in the boat) and probably sustained two separate lots of injuries. We don’t know which event each of his injuries corresponds with, but my guess is that he took a bullet to the hand when they fired at the boat after the note had already been written.

Anonymous asked: silly you lol how do you feel about the boat not? do you think it's legit? does it raise any suspicion or questions?

Yes I believe it’s legit. I was a bit stunned that we actually go to see it. We already knew the note existed and some of its contents had already been leaked to the media. But for some reason actually seeing the words written down made everything seem more real… it was actually kind of eerie. The part that appears to say “Our actions came with a message…” is the closest thing to an admission of responsibility that the public has seen so far. That is the part that hit me the hardest. Even though I’ve always believed that Dzhokhar is guilty, seeing an admission that has (allegedly) come directly from him makes it sink in a bit more, if that makes sense…

For some reason I do not believe that the boat note is legit.  For instance you cannot write with a pen on a fiberglass wall! Second it is also impossible to write so much text on a wall at the vertical as the ink would not have leak for the duration of the writing..

Look, here is the problem with all the claims that the boat note is fake:

JAHAR’S OWN DEFENSE admitted that he wrote it. I’m on my phone and can’t provide the link so I’d appreciate if someone else could.

His defense submitted to the court in a SAMs-related document a statement to the effect that he wrote the note believing that he would not survive. If he told them he didn’t write the boat note they would not have said one word to imply that he did, nor would they have supplied the rationale for writing the note. Please remember, his team is comprised of seasoned professionals.

Unless one believes that his defense team is part of a vast conspiracy and not fighting for the best possible outcome for him, I don’t see how it is possible to claim the boat note is fake.

Exactly. If they have provided a motive for him writing the note then the implication is that he wrote the note.

Anonymous asked: Thank you for that info about prison chaplains! I thought I read somewhere once that Devens does have a Muslim chaplain on its staff, but due to J's circumstances, it wasn't made clear whether he could have access to this service or not. Anyway thanks again!

Yeah it’s not very clear, but it sounds like it’s up to the discretion of the prison. And you’re welcome :)

Anonymous asked: You know that pic of jahar where its just his face and its against a white background and hes in a brown sweater? Ya know the pic they use for everything. Is that like his passport pic or what? Weird and irrelevant question but ive always wondered

let-goletgod:

Yes, I think that’s his passport picture. He’s lucky it’s a good pic lol

I thought I read somewhere that the file photo news sites always use was from his drivers licence. Actually maybe it was his student ID photo from UMass? I can’t remember now. Either way, I’ve always thought it was funny that it’s one of the best pics of him (that I’ve seen) and with most people the opposite is the case lol… I look horrid in mine

Anonymous asked: I wonder if J is allowed to see a Muslim prison chaplain. I don't see why he wouldn't be allowed to, since it would be similar to how he's currently allowed to have a mental health consultant visit him. The government could even regard such visits as a way to "rehabilitate" him. I hope the prosecution isn't needlessly preventing such visits.

aliyaayila:

I honestly don’t know but I don’t have any high hopes. I have actually been concerned about this because I think the last thing any of them care about is his rehabilitation.  I really hope he does get to see a Muslim chaplain but I think he is not allowed to pray with his fellow inmates so I don’t know why they would allow him to talk with the chaplain, which is unfortunate because that is what he needs right now. I’m positive the prosecutor is being quit the little bitch about any and everything. :/

Section 5b of the SAMs memo says “If a USMS/BOP/DF - and/or FBI-approved religious representative is to be present for prayer with the inmate, the prayer shall be conducted as part of a contact or non-contact visit, at the discretion of the USMS/BOP/DF.” It doesn’t elaborate any further about rules regarding religious visits, however it is implied that they are allowed. As for whether the prison actually provides a particular chaplaincy service, that is another question :/

I didn’t realise I had anons disabled until yesterday (oops… you can tell I’m not very tumblr-savvy lol). They are enabled now, so if any of you have ever wanted to ask me something anonymously you can now do so :)

So adorable I think I actually might die if I don’t stop watching it
