Apparently Boston police officer Richard Donohue,a close friend of MIT police officer Sean Collier,( who was alledgedly shot and killed by the evil Tsarnaev brothers),was shot in the groin so gravely by his fellow officers' 'friendly fire' that he developed amnesia !
Well those two elite FBI officers who were also there with him on that fateful night want be able to help him jog it because they ,uh, just both happened to fall out of a helicopter during a 'training' accident and died.I wonder why the FBI doesn't take a hint from circus trapeze performances and provide their officers in training with a safety net ?
Two FBI Agents In Boston Marathon Bomber Case Fall Out of Helicopter and Die
Slain MIT officer was 'murdered for his gun' after he was 'ambushed by Boston Marathon bombing suspects'
- By Daily Mail Reporter and Associated Press PUBLISHED: 03:20 GMT, 24 April 2013
- Sean Collier was allegedly executed by the Boston Marathon bombing suspects as he sat in his patrol car on Friday morning
- Collier, 27, laid to rest at St Patrick's Church in Stoneham, Massachusetts
- Officer Collier had volunteered at the same boxing gym where Tamerlan Tsarnaev had trained as a fighter
- The MIT police officer who was
executed in his patrol car on Friday morning was drawn into a trap by
the Boston Marathon bombing suspects - who killed him for his gun - it
has been claimed.
Sean Collier, 27, died from multiple gunshot wounds in the early morning hours of Friday as he responded to a noise complaint.
The motivation for that murder was at first unclear, but police now believe that the suspects shot him in order to steal his gun.
CBS News reported that Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were armed with just one gun and a pellet gun, and may have been looking to broaden their arsenal.
The network reported that the brothers' efforts to take Collier's gun were unsuccessful because he had a locking system in his holster.
Less than an hour later, police caught up with the suspects, engaging them in a wild shootout in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed.
His brother Dzhokhar managed to escape, but was caught on Friday evening as he hid in a boat in a Watertown backyard.................

But on Sunday, about a month after he was seriously wounded, Donohue, looking relaxed, sat next to his wife, Kim, in the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital gym overlooking the harbor and the Boston skyline.
“This afternoon I’m feeling pretty decent,” he said with a smile. “I’m moving around on crutches a fair bit; the pain’s not too bad. I’m getting stronger and healthier by the day. It’s a good feeling.”
Donohue, 33, iced his leg, his crutches nearby, as he spoke about the pain he suffers from nerve damage.
“I’m definitely not 100 percent, and I definitely have nights where I don’t sleep well; I sleep a couple hours here and there,” said Donohue. “[I’m] working through it and working around it with the doctors and physical therapists and trying to move forward.”In the early morning of April 19, Donohue was called to the scene of the shoot-out in Watertown, where more than 300 shots were exchanged between police and the bombing suspects, brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
He was struck in the right groin area by a bullet that severed his femoral artery and caused profuse bleeding. The bullet is still inside him.
“He had severe blood loss,” said Kim, 31. “A doctor came and told me he barely had a drop left by the time they got to him.”
Donohue said he cannot recall much from the night Collier was shot and the subsequent shoot-out. When he woke up in Mount Auburn Hospital, he did not understand why he was there.
“I wasn’t shot,” Donohue responded when Kim and his brother told him what had happened.
In disbelief, he turned to medical personnel and received the same answer: Yes, you were shot. Only later did he realize how serious his situation was.
Family and friends kept him from watching television news to protect him from learning more about the bombings until he was ready.
They also did not want him to find out from TV about the death of Collier, with whom he graduated from the police academy. During the interview Sunday, Donohue wore a “Collier Strong” bracelet around his wrist.
“It was a lot of information for someone in that type of pain to process,” said Kim.
Slowly, memories began to return.
He remembered eating lunch in Cleveland Circle the day of the Boston Marathon.
“That was the first thing I remembered,” he said. “Then I started piecing things back together . . . up until the day when I was shot. The last thing I remember was being at roll call [on April 18] and talking to somebody there.”
Later that night, Donohue was at Collier’s murder scene, despite the night being a blank to him.
“I had already been to Sean’s scene; there’s videotape of me being there,” he said. “I had made text messages and phone calls that I looked at a couple days later, but I don’t physically recall being there. . . . It could all come back tonight, tomorrow, a year from now, but as of right now it’s all a blackout.”
Collier is still very much on the Donohues’ minds. Kim said she felt him watching over them when her husband was wounded.
“He was there that night saying, ‘Hey, I don’t need a friend up here right now with me,’ ” she said. “I feel like Sean’s really been watching Dic through the entire thing. . . . We talk about Sean every day and we think about Sean every day and that will probably never change for us.”
The shoot-out is still under investigation, but the Globe has reported that multiple eyewitnesses said Donohue was hit by another officer.
“If it was friendly fire, it was friendly fire,” Donohue said. “We got the job done and the other suspect got captured shortly thereafter, so I’m just happy with that. It doesn’t bother me.”.........
