Death for Tsarnaev as Jury Returns Sentence

Death for Tsarnaev as Jury Returns Sentence

The same jury that declared Dzhokhar Tsarnaev guilty on all 30 counts has now said he should be sentenced to death for his crimes.

Jurors who sentenced Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have found that he showed no remorse.

The jury found that Tsarnaev committed 11 of 12 aggravating factors that prosecutors said supported a sentence of death.

Among the aggravating factors they say the government proved was that he targeted an iconic event that draws large crowds, which makes it especially susceptible to terrorism.

The only one they ruled the government hadn’t proved was that Tsarnaev made statements suggesting that others would be justified in committing additional acts of violence and terrorism against the U.S.

The formal sentencing will be done by the judge at a later date.

The new attorney general, Loretta Lynch, was supportive of the sentence.

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. We thank the jurors for their service, the people of Boston for their vigilance, resilience and support and the law enforcement community in Boston and throughout the country for their important work.

While many years of appeals are undoubtedly ahead, for this moment, there is a measure of justice.

Pray for the families who still suffer from those horrible crimes.

May Tsarnaev rot in a cell until the meeting with his dead brother can be arranged.

    If this isn’t worthy of the death penalty, and injection, what on earth would be?!?!

    Until he’s executed, let him live in complete, total solitary confinement………………..although, if they put him in the general population and let them deal with him, we might save some money and time. Just sayin’………….

    Not taking away anything from any of the victims but… fitting that he was convicted on National Law Enforcement Memorial Day.
