Earlier today, the uncle of the Boston Marathon bombers, Ruslan Tsarni, called a press conference to talk about the family’s emotions related to the tragedy. No one was quite sure whether he would express sadness, sympathy for his nephews or confusion. Let the record show his predominate emotion was anger.

In a bristling, aggressive and awesome nine minute press conference, Uncle Ruslan took his nephews to task for their crimes, calling them “losers” who couldn’t hack it. He also spoke of his appreciation for the United States, expressed his sympathy to each one of the victims and implored his surviving nephew to turn himself immediately and ask all of Boston for forgiveness for his upsetting crime.

In the days since the bombing, emotions have poured out in a lot of different and beautiful ways. Uncle Ruslan obviously has a very different perspective given his family connection, but in a way, he’s in the same boat as everyone else. His sympathies are with the victims. He’s a caring American first and foremost.

Pop Blend’s sincerest thoughts go out to all the victims. Here’s to hoping Ruslan’s nephew Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is caught or turns himself in as quickly as possible.
