Court documents say Tsarnaev was ready for jihad
BOSTON (WHDH) -- For the first time new information about what Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s went through between the race and his arrest has been released.
An 18-page document was given to the Director of the Bureau of Federal Prisons.
Prosecutors argue Tsarnaev's special restrictions are necessary considering what happened before, during, and after the Boston marathon attack.
They say he's so dangerous, his contacts with the outside world should be severely limited.
"During the days following the attacks Tsarnaev and his brother made additional bombs," according to the new paperwork.
There is now new information, according to NBC, about lines he wrote while hiding out in a boat in Watertown.
"[Muslims] are beginning to rise. ... Know you are fighting men who look into the barrel of your gun and see heaven, how can you complete with that? We are promised victory and we will surely get it," a report says Tsarnaev wrote.
"Tsarnaev reaffirmed his commitment to jihad and expressed hope that his actions would inspire others to engage in violent jihad,” according to prosecutors.
The filing reveals as Tsarnaev fled from police in Watertown on the Friday following the bombing, "he smashed both of his cell phones before finding a hiding place, knowing they could be used to geo-locate him."
