Federal Prosecutors Will Seek the Death Penalty Against Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
FINALLY ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER GETS SOMETHING RIGHT, FEDS WILL SEEK DEATH PENALTY AGAINST DZHOKHAR TAARNAEV …
United States federal prosecutors will seek the death penalty against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev for his role in the Boston Marathon bombing that took place on April 15, 2013 that left three dead and many more seriously injured losing limbs. U.S. attorney in Boston, Carmen Ortiz, said in a statement that prosecutors there supported the decision and that the “trial team is prepared to move forward.” It can’t come soon enough. If there was ever a case for the death penalty, this would be it. Let’s give Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his fair trial, let the jury deliberate and let’s hope that common sense prevails and he is found guilty and sentenced to death.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev better hope that Boston Red Sox’s Big Papi is not selected for jury duty …
The Justice Department announced Thursday that it would seek the death penalty against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 20-year-old man whom prosecutors have accused of bombing the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 200 others.
“The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a short statement.
The U.S. attorney in Boston, Carmen Ortiz, said in a statement that prosecutors there supported the decision and that the “trial team is prepared to move forward.”
The case is in its early stages, and prosecutors could yet use the threat of death to strike a plea bargain with the young man and avoid a lengthy trial with bombing victims taking the stand to recount the attack.

CNN has audio of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mother reaction and for some reason decides to report on the news that Dzhokhar’s mother thinks he is innocent of the Boston Marathon bombings and the murders that took place in the aftermath. CNN also then reported that many in southern Russia are distrustful of the US government’s case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. I wonder why their ratings are waning?
