Hartford — A retired Hartford High School teacher has offered a private burial plot in Connecticut to the family of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the suspect in the Boston bombings who died in a shootout with police.
Paul Keane, 68, took to his blog Monday evening to offer the Hamden, Conn., plot to the family.
“I am willing to donate a burial plot next to my mother in Mt. Carmel Burying Ground to the Tsarnaev family if they cannot obtain a plot,” he wrote. “The only condition is that I do it in memory of my mother who taught Sunday School at the Mt. Carmel Congregational Church for 20 years and taught me to ‘love thine enemy.’ ”
Keane, a Hartford village resident who ran for state representative last year relying solely on social media, declined to comment on the record yesterday, other than restating his mother’s advice.
Keane’s offer comes at a time when the final resting place of the 26-year-old Tsarnaev, who died on April 19, is a hotly debated topic.
So we all know that no one wants him burried in Boston or in the US for that matter, what do you think of this man's actions from a religious (or not religious) point of view?Answer Question
