    Death Penalty for Tsarnaev, Marathon Bomber


    EDIT

    My cell phone system was unusable, network busy. I thought it was a verdict, I guess so.

    I was getting worried. As of this morning 9 hours of deliberations. Took 11 to decide death for McVeigh.

    Next stop Indiana.

    May all the victims, direct and indirect, rest easier.

    From Associated Press Big Story

    http://bigstory.ap.org/article/4d639...-penalty-phase

    BOSTON (AP) — A jury sentenced Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death Friday for the Boston Marathon bombing, sweeping aside pleas that he was just a "kid" who fell under the influence of his fanatical older brother.
    Tsarnaev, 21, stood with his hands folded, his head slightly bowed, upon learning his fate, decided after 14 hours of deliberations over three days. It was the most closely watched terrorism trial in the U.S. since the Oklahoma City bombing case two decades ago.
    The decision sets the stage for what could be the nation's first execution of a terrorist in the post-9/11 era, though the case is likely to go through years of appeals. The execution would be carried out by lethal injection.
    The 12-member jury had to be unanimous for Tsarnaev to get the death penalty. Otherwise, he would have automatically received a sentence of life in prison without parole.
    Tsarnaev's father, Anzor Tsarnaev, reached by phone by the Associated Press in the Russian region of Dagestan, let out a deep moan upon hearing the news and hung up.
    Three people were killed and more than 260 wounded when two pressure-cooker bombs packed with shrapnel exploded near the finish line on April 15, 2013.
    The former college student was convicted last month of all 30 federal charges against him, including use of a weapon of mass destruction and the killing of an MIT police officer during the Tsarnaev brothers' getaway attempt. Seventeen of those charges carried the possibility of the death penalty.
    Tsarnaev's chief lawyer, death penalty specialist Judy Clarke, admitted at the very start of the trial that he participated in the bombings, bluntly telling the jury: "It was him."

      Reaction to Death Penalty:

      Reaction to the death sentence a federal jury imposed Friday on Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev:
      ___
      "My mother and I think that NOW he will go away and we will be able to move on. Justice. In his own words, "an eye for an eye." — Bombing victim Sydney Corcoran, who nearly bled to death; mother Celeste lost both legs
      ___
      "We know all too well that no verdict can heal the souls of those who lost loved ones, nor the minds and bodies of those who suffered life-changing injuries from this cowardly attack. But the ultimate penalty is a fitting punishment for this horrific crime and we hope that the completion of this prosecution will bring some measure of closure to the victims and their families." — U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch
      ___
      "Tsarnaev is an unrepentant terrorist held to account by a justice system that provides due process of law even to those who commit the most horrific offenses. We extend our deepest sympathies to all those affected, and hope the conclusion of this trial provides an important measure of justice to those still healing." — U.S. Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Carlin.
      ___
      "I hope this verdict provides a small amount of closure to the survivors, families, and all impacted by the violent and tragic events surrounding the 2013 Boston Marathon. We will forever remember and honor those who lost their lives and were affected by those senseless acts of violence on our city. Today, more than ever, we know that Boston is a city of hope, strength and resilience that can overcome any challenge." — Boston Mayor Marty Walsh
      ___
      "I think every time somebody runs the marathon, it will be impossible for this to be too far from their minds. The marathon has certainly changed forever ... and that by definition, I suppose, changes Boston." — Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker

        Let's hope they carry it out as quickly as they did in the McVeigh case!

          This will cost the taxpayers a fortune as all the appeals get processed before he is finally executed for his crime.

            I hope so - although IIRC McVeigh decided not to appeal.

              That is justice. The little worm is getting what he deserves.

              We are not now that strength which in old days
              Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
              Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
              To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                I just wish that it'd be a little quicker. I'd pull the trigger for free. Pay for the ammo too.

                      There was some speculation that it would be hard to find a jury in the Boston area that would impose the Death Penalty. Good picking/work by the US Attorney office.

                        Can someone else appeal for him?

                          I watched the press conference, and not once, did the prosecutor connect Islam with this criminal terrorist known as Tsarnaev.


                          Tzarnaev was a terrorist and he is not getting "virgins", I think that the belief that one will get virgins when they kill innocent people is the kind of Devil type language that Al Qaeda folks use.

                            Tsarnaev was a radical Muslim who has himself repeatedly testified that he committed his abominable acts in the name of God and Islam. He is getting exactly what he deserves: to be put down like a rabid dog.

                            Rest in hell, Dzhokhar.

                              It's burn in hell. Btw doesn't hell sound like the event horizon of a black hole?
