I guess I can see why Katherine Russell fell in love with murdering Islamic fanatic Tamerlan Tsarnaev. From the New York Daily News:
College roommates of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s widow described him as a brutish, manipulative boyfriend who often hurled insults — and more — at the woman who would eventually bear his child.
Three of Katherine Russell’s pals at Suffolk University watched as she was terrorized by the dead bombing suspect after they began their on-and-off relationship in 2007, NPR reported.
Angry and controlling, Tsarnaev called Russell a “slut” and a “prostitute” and was known to throw furniture or
other objects at her during fits of rage, the unnamed roommates said.
What a dream boat! No wonder he swept her off her feet! And that was before she entered the dream come true of actually being married to Tamerlan, in which she could work 70 hours a week while he stayed home building bombs and planning murder and mayhem.
Does the Violence Against Women Act have anything to say about this sort of thing? I didn’t think so.
