Tamerlan Tsarnaev reportedly hated America so much, yet he didn't mind taking benefits checks. 

The Boston Herald reports the marathon bomber was living on unemployment benefits as he was studying up on anti-American militant Islam.

Officials say Tsarnaev and his wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, along with their three-year-old daughter received benefits until they stopped meeting income eligibility last year.  They say the parents of the brothers also received benefits to help support the family when they were younger.
