    Tsarnev is found guilty and guilty of the charges that carry the death penalty. The penalty phase should be (I would assume) be seeking the death penalty, though I do not believe Mass. has executed someone since the 1940's.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Isn't it a federal case? I don't think Massachusetts gets to make the call here.

    Either way, the guilty verdict was pretty much a foregone conclusion.

    Well considering that Tsarnaev did admit to bombing the Boston Marathon I would have been surprised if he wasnt guilty... I mean why even have a trial if the guy admitted to it in the first place?

    He admitted involvement; his defense claimed the brother was the brains behind it. There were 30-some-odd counts; he was trying to skate on a few of them and maybe avoid lethal injection. There was no way he was going to get off totally clean.

    Due process is the answer to your question.

    But anyway... Justice is done, I'm comfortable with the death penalty in these kinds of cases but life imprisonment is just fine as well.

    Yup it was a foregone conclusion it is just whether he gets the death penalty or not

    Good. Hope he dies soon.

    There was no need to spend millions on a trial that lasted for weeks when he admitted to it. Probably been better off if he just got sentenced right after the charges were filed.

    In our form of government, trials bring a level of closure to those directly involved and to the community at large. They are well worth the price.

    In addition, a trial is necessary for death penalty cases in that someone admitting to such a crime cannot plea bargain for the death penalty and I'm sure prosecutors want nothing less.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
