Boston Marathon Bombing Victim: Tsarnaev's Mother a 'Vile Person'

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, the mother of the men accused of bombing the Boston Marathon in April, isn't winning any fans among the victims of her sons' crimes. The Boston Herald reports that one of those victims, who was hospitalized for weeks after the bombings, says Tsarnaeva's pro-jihad comments are "vile." Here's the story from the Herald:
Tsarnaeva has said her sons, Dzhokar and the late Tamerlan, are the victims of a conspiracy against Muslims. She has also been accused of being a 9/11 truther.
Dzhokar has been charged in federal court for several crimes, including use of a weapon of mass destruction.
Gun control advocates, meanwhile, caused a stir at a rally in New Hampshire Tuesday when one activist read the name of Tamerlan Tsarnaev in a list of victims of gun violence. Tamerlan was killed in a shootout while he was running from police days after the bombing. According to the New Hampshire Union Leader's coverage, protesters booed the mention of Tamerlan as a victim, saying "he's a terrorist."
