New Facts About the Boston Marathon Bomber's Capture Disprove Media's Coverage

It has been a week and a few days since we were captivated and on the edge of our seats watching the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev unfold in front of our eyes. We were clinging to every piece of information as the media scrambled to tell us about what was going on. Now, we are finding out that during the Boston Marathon bombing manhunt, there was a lot of inaccurate information curciulated due to the chaotic nature of the investigation. Vanity Fair has compiled all the new (and definitive) evidence uncovered by the The New York Times and other media sources: 
  • The Tsarnaev brothers did not rob a 7-Eleven or any other convenience store.
  • They did not free their carjacking victim. He escaped when they stopped at a gas station, fleeing to another gas station across the street.
  • The brothers had only one gun, not three. It was apparently Tamerlan's.
  • Dzhokhar did not have a gun when he was captured.
  • Police officers did not "exchange gunfire" with Dzhokhar when they finally captured him. The cops were the only ones firing.
  • The boat in which Dzhokhar was discovered was not outside the perimeter the police had established during the manhunt.
