Awful: Russert tweets ‘must-read’ about ‘beloved’ wrestling captain Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has just been charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction. But hey, it’s important that we don’t let that overshadow his achievements as a high school wrestling captain! At least that’s what this tweet by Luke Russert suggests:

For the record, the word “beloved” doesn’t appear anywhere in the article. Russert came up with that all on his own. How sweet.

What is with this creepy need to humanize a monster? What purpose could it possibly serve other than slapping victims’ families and friends in their faces?

Absolutely reprehensible.

That’s right. Martin Richard will never have a chance to go to high school.
