One brother is dead and another is awaiting trial for detonating two bombs near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon, but that sobering reality failed to stop their sister from threatening to blow up a rival.
Ailina Tsarnaev, the sister of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev — brother Tamerlan Tsarnaeva died in a gunbattle with police — allegedly threatened the mother of her boyfriend’s kids over the phone, the local Fox affiliate reported.
“Leave us alone,” she allegedly told the woman, according to My Fox Boston. “I know people who can put a bomb on you.”
Ms. Tsarnaeva turned herself in and was charged with aggravated harassment.
This is her second encounter with law enforcement, having been linked to a counterfeiting case in 2011 — the charges against her were later dismissed.
As word of her arrest made its way across social media, Twitter users were quick to offer their take on the Tsanaev family’s short legacy as Americans:
@SharmanTV …I think her brother is a little preoccupied at the moment…so I wonder who’d *pinch hit* for her.

@karenreports I hope they took her seriously. Why is that family still here??

@Breaking911 Well, she is right. She does know someone who can put a bomb on them. However, one is dead and one is in jail! Damn DNA
