As the enemedia continues to search for any 'root cause' that doesn't involve a Koran, it keeps getting sillier and sillier.
According to the New York Times, poor Tamerlan Tsarnaev turned into a Muslim terrorist and murdered children because he couldn't withstand losing the ability to compete in the Golden Gloves boxing matches.
The Golden Gloves changed the rules, you see, and that set him off.
I am sure that it is true of most folks, that life's disappointments has them blowing up women and children at a Patriot's Day event in the cause of Islam.
How a dashed boxing dream left Tamerlan Tsarnaev adriftDEBORAH SONTAG, DAVID M. HERSZENHORN AND SERGE F. KOVALESKIBoston and Makhachkala, Russia — The New York Times News Service, Apr. 27 2013
It was a blow the immigrant boxer could not withstand: After capturing his second consecutive title as the Golden Gloves heavyweight champion of New England in 2010, Tamerlan Anzorovich Tsarnaev was barred from the national Tournament of Champions because he was not a U.S. citizen.The cocksure fighter, a flamboyant dresser partial to white fur and snakeskin, had been looking forward to redeeming the loss he suffered the previous year in the first round, when the judges awarded his opponent the decision, drawing boos from spectators who considered Tsarnaev dominant.From one year to the next, though, the tournament rules had changed, disqualifying legal permanent residents – not only Tsarnaev, then 23 who was Soviet-born of Chechen and Dagestani heritage, but several other New England contenders, too. His aspirations frustrated, he dropped out of boxing competition entirely, and his life veered in a completely different direction.Tsarnaev portrayed his quitting as a reflection of the sport’s incompatibility with his growing devotion to Islam. But as dozens of interviews with friends, acquaintances and relatives from Cambridge to Dagestan showed, that devotion, and the suspected radicalization that accompanied it, was a path he followed most avidly only after his more secular dreams were dashed in 2010 and he was left adrift.His trajectory, authorities say, eventually led the frustrated athlete and his loyal younger brother, Dzhokhar, to bomb one of the most famous athletic events in this country, killing three people and wounding more than 200 at the Boston Marathon. They say it led Tsarnaev, his application for citizenship stalled, and his brother, a new citizen and a seemingly well-adjusted college student, to attack their American hometown on Patriots’ Day, April 15.Tsarnaev now lies in the state medical examiner’s office, his body riddled with bullets after a confrontation with the police four days after the bombings. He left behind an American-born wife who had converted to Islam, a 3-year-old daughter with curly hair, a 19-year-old brother charged with using a weapon of mass destruction, and a puzzle: Why did these two young men seemingly turn on the country that had granted them asylum?
