    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Given Death Penalty in Boston Marathon Bombing

    BOSTON — Two years after bombs in two backpacks transformed the Boston Marathon from a sunny rite of spring to a smoky battlefield with bodies dismembered, a federal jury on Friday condemned Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death for his role in the 2013 attack.

    In a sweeping rejection of the defense case, the jury found that death was the appropriate punishment for six of 17 capital counts — all six related to Mr. Tsarnaev’s planting of a pressure-cooker bomb on Boylston Street, which his lawyers never disputed. Mr. Tsarnaev, 21, stood stone-faced in court, his hands folded in front of him, as the verdict was read, his lawyers standing grimly at his side.

    Sleep tight sucker, I say. May he make a fine wife in jail up until his worthless life is ended.

    Still, we must remain vigilant more now than ever, the left is more concerned about its political adversaries than it is about fighting terror, and the house intelligence committee says we face a greater threat now than ever in our history.

    Does it make any difference?

    If you mean to say that any apologies are cold comfort to bereaved families, no.

    But if he is genuinely remorseful, this is good for him. And maybe good for others who believe in the power of forgiveness and redemption.

    I agree it will be good for him. But that IV potassium stopping his heart will be good for me.

    I hope it hurts. A lot.

    A well deserved sentence. Hopefully he will be kept in solitary until the needle takes his life.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.

    I think certain acts are unforgivable.

    He's not gonna be kept around anyone else. And this is not even close to being done.

    Still, we must remain vigilant more now than ever, the left is more concerned about its political adversaries than it is about fighting terror, and the house intelligence committee says we face a greater threat now than ever in our history.
    What the ****? Those damn lefties!
    But anyways! Be afraid! Be afraid! Fear! Fear! Fear! Be afraid
