BOSTON BOMBING VERDICT: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Guilty on All 30 Counts in Boston Marathon Bombings … Now Jury Must Decide Whether He Gets Death Penalty or Life in Prison
Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev found guilty on all counts … GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been found guilty on all counts!!! It took the jury of seven women and five men 11½ hours of deliberations to reach their verdict, longer than it takes to run the Boston marathon. The convicted bomber never once looked at the jury as their verdicts were read. In the end, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is guilty as sin for his crimes committed at the 2013 Boston Marathon and the ensuing acts that took place. As if that was ever in doubt. There was a mountain of evidence and some crimes are just so heinous that it is just a matter of the jury methodically going through the legal paperwork.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev VIDEO: The guilty counts, one-by-one
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, his face a blank, stood with his head bowed and his hands clasped as the guilty verdicts tolled one after another for what seemed like an eternity: Guilty of using weapons of mass destruction, guilty of bombing a place of public use, guilty of conspiracy and aiding and abetting. Guilty, guilty, guilty: The word was spoken 32 times.Yes, the jury said, Tsarnaev caused the deaths of Krystle Campbell, Martin Richard, Lingzi Lu and Sean Collier. Yes, it was murder. And so, the word “yes” was spoken 63 times, each time making Tsarnaev eligible for the death penalty.
From start to finish, it took 26 minutes for the jury to announce its verdict in the Boston Marathon bombing trial: Tsarnaev didn’t skate on a single charge. He now stands guilty of all 30 counts, 17 of which could send him to death row.
If hearing the verdicts seemed overwhelming, that paled in comparison to seeing and hearing evidence behind them: awful images and sounds. The jury saw bombs explode and tear people apart. They saw streets splashed crimson with blood and littered with severed limbs and body parts. They heard the cries of the injured, and witnesses told them how people tended to the dying and gravely injured, unaware of their own injuries as they tied belts around the mangled limbs of friends and strangers alike.
17 of the 30 counts that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty of on Wednesday are punishable by death. The question now becomes should Dzhokhar Tsarnaev rot in prison or rot in hell. Personally, I would choose Hell.
Now that a jury has convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on all charges, even more is at stake in the next phase of the federal trial: The same 12 people must decide whether the 21-year-old lives or dies.
Tsarnaev was found guilty Wednesday of 30 counts against him, including conspiracy and deadly use of a weapon of mass destruction. Seventeen of those charges are punishable by death.
“In a crime of this magnitude, what American citizen wouldn’t ask, `What would drive a person to do this?’ And, as a juror, the question becomes, what answer would satisfy you?”
During the penalty phase, which could begin as early as Monday, prosecutors will provide evidence of aggravating factors they believe support the death penalty. They’ve already listed several aggravating factors, including the killing of a child and the targeting of the marathon because of the potential for maximum bloodshed.
A U.S. jury found Dzhokhar Tsarnaev guilty of the Boston Marathon bombing, and his own lawyer admitted it in court, but a relative said Thursday that she remains convinced that he and his now-dead elder brother had no reason to carry out such a terrorist attack.
Tsarnaev was found guilty on Wednesday of all 30 counts against him, and now the same jury in Boston must decide whether he should be sentenced to death or to life in prison.
Roza Tsarnaeva, a 66-year-old cousin of Tsarnaev’s father, told The Associated Press in Chechnya that she is “completely convinced that they were not guilty of this.”
“When something happens the first thing you have to do is ask ‘who needs this?’ These boys didn’t need this,” she said. “They never saw war, they were little when they arrived in the U.S. and grew up there.
“No one in the Tsarnaev family, none of the relatives, ever took part in the military campaigns in Chechnya” in which separatists, some of them radical Islamists, fought two wars against Russian troops, she said.
Tsarnaeva claimed that the Boston bombing was “the doing of the American secret services, although with what aim I don’t know.”

Seven people were injured, some critically, during an early-morning shooting on Saturday.
Multiple 911 calls flooded in just before 1 a.m., reporting the shootings at the house party in Panama City Beach, and deputies found a sprawling crime scene with victims inside the home, outside and across the street from it, and in the street’s median, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office said.
Officers set up a perimeter and found a suspect matching witnesses’ description.

Three of the victims — Freed, Curry and Powell — are students from Alabama A&M University in Panama City Beach for spring break, university spokesman Jerome Saintjones said. He said investigators in Florida told the university police department the students were innocent bystanders.
12 Year Old Girl Charged with 2 Counts of First Degree Attempted Murder For Trying to Poison Her For Taking Away Her iPhone
ATTEMPTED MURDER FOE HAVING YOU IPHONE TAKEN AWAY?
A 12 year old girl in Colorado has been detained at the Boulder County Juvenile Center on two counts of attempted first-degree murder for attempting to poison her mother for having taken away her iPhone. According to police, the unnamed minor had poisoned her mother’s drink with bleach on two separate occasions. On March 6, the mother was sent to the Boulder Community Hospital when she contacted authorities to investigate. What kind of children are we raising that would even contemplate poisoning their parent because of being punished for having their iPhone taken away? Obviously, this pre-teen may need to have her freedom taken away as well.
A 12-year-old Colorado girl has been detained for allegedly trying to kill her mother twice by poisoning her drinks with bleach, after her mother took away her iPhone, police said.
The woman first felt sick on March 2, after drinking a smoothie, according to the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. While she noticed the smell of bleach from her glass, the woman assumed her daughter hadn’t rinsed it properly, according to the sheriff’s office.
Then a few days later, the mother again recognized the smell of bleach coming from something she was going to drink and she confronted the pre-teen, the sheriff’s office said. The girl allegedly told her she wanted to kill her because she took away her iPhone, according to the sheriff’s office.
The girl had allegedly poured bleach into her mother’s water carafe, the sheriff’s office said.
Marion “Suge” Knight collapsed in a courtroom Friday after a judge ordered him held on $25 million bail in a murder case. “Suge” Knight, the 49-year-old co-founder of Death Row Records, has pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges. Knight was arrested in January 2015 on suspicion of murder after he allegedly ran over two men with his truck following an argument on a film set in Compton, California.
25 million dollars
Former rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight collapsed in a courtroom Friday shortly after a judge ordered him held on $25 million bail in a murder case.
Bailiffs cleared the courtroom, paramedics arrived with a stretcher a few minutes later and an ambulance was seen leaving the courthouse.
Defense attorney Matthew Fletcher said Knight was unconscious when the lawyer left the courtroom and an update on his condition was not immediately available.
Fletcher said his client, who is diabetic and has a blood clot, previously told him that he hadn’t received any medication since Thursday.
Knight hit his head on a chair when he fell after the bail hearing, Fletcher said.
Hell, I think I would pass out too if a judge ordered bail at $25 million.

The two officers have since been released from the hospital.
An arrest has been made in connection with the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, officials said Sunday afternoon.

ARE YOU HAPPY BARACK OBAMA, ERIC HOLDER, AL SHARPTON AND THE MSM? YOU FINALLY GAVE THE MOB WHAT THEY WANTED … BLOOD.
Two police officers have been shot in Ferguson, Missouri just after midnight last night as police were confronting protesters who had gathered outside the police station. One St. Louis county police officer, who is 41 and has been on the force for 14 years, was hit in the shoulder. The other police officer, a Webster Groves officer, who is 32 and has been on the force seven years, was shot in the face. The injuries of both officers are being described as “very serious gunshot injuries,” but are not considered to be life threatening.
The open season on police officers in Ferguson, MO takes place following the over the top, scathing Justice Department report alleging bias in the police department and court and the resignation of Ferguson police chief Tom Jackson. However, this is what happens when you pander to the mob. This is what happens when Attorney General vows to dismantle the Ferguson police department and at the same time he and Barack Obama fail to mention that “Stand Up, Don’t Shoot” was based on a complete and total lie.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOVERNMENT FANS THE FLAMES OF RACISM. ERIC HOLDER INCITED THIS BY HIS ACTIONS, RATHER THAN ACTING LIKE AN ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR ALL THE PEOPLE.
Two police officers were hit by gunfire early Thursday outside the Ferguson police department.
The shots were fired just after midnight as police were confronting protesters who had gathered outside the police station.
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said one officer was with his department and the other was with the Webster Groves department. Both were being treated at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, where Belmar spoke, and were in serious condition.
The chief said at least three shots were fired. He described the injuries of both men as “very serious gunshot injuries.” Neither injury was considered life-threatening.
One officer told KMOV-TV that the shooting was an “ambush.”
The shots were fired shortly after midnight as protesters were gathered following the resignation of embattled Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson on Wednesday.
Before the shooting, some at the protest were chanting to show they weren’t satisfied with the resignations of Jackson and City Manager John Shaw earlier in the week, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Authorities from multiple agencies had gathered outside of the department.
The protest was a familiar scene in Ferguson, which saw similar and much larger demonstrations after the shooting death of Michael Brown last summer by officer Darren Wilson. When Wilson was cleared in November by a state grand jury, the decision set off further protests, looting and fires.
Wednesday was the first time an officer at a protest had been shot.
Convicted Wife Killer Drew Peterson Charged With Murder for Hire to Kill Will County State’s Prosecutor James Glasgow
HE’S BACK IN THE NEWS FROM BEHIND BARS … DREW PETERSON CHARGED WITH MURDER FOR HIRE …
Just when you thought you had not heard from Drew Peterson in a while, he’s back. This time Peterson, the disgraced and former Bolingbrook police officer, has been charged in a murder for hire plot to kill the prosecutor who put him behind bars. Drew Peterson has been charged with solicited a person to find someone he could pay to kill Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow. The 61 year old Peterson allegedly tried to hire someone to kill Glasgow between September 13 and December 14, 2014. Peterson faces two felony charges: solicitation of murder and solicitation of murder for hire.
Why should any one be surprised what Drew Peterson would ever so? He’s a multiple murderer, what’s a murderer for hire plot after killing your wife? As former Peterson attorney says in the video below, there is no valid or logical reason to do something like this, except pure vengeance. Hmm, that sounds completely like Drew Peterson.
Drew Peterson, the former suburban Chicago police officer convicted of killing his third wife and suspected in the disappearance of his fourth, has been charged with trying to hire someone to kill the prosecutor who helped put him in state prison, authorities announced Monday.
Peterson appeared in court on charges that between September 2013 and December 2014, while behind bars, he solicited a person to find someone he could pay to kill Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow. Peterson did not enter a plea.
The latest complaint was filed by both the Illinois attorney general’s office and the prosecutor in Randolph County — the location of Menard Correctional Center, where Peterson is serving his sentence. In the two-page complaint, Peterson is charged with solicitation of murder for hire and one count of solicitation of murder, both felonies carrying a maximum sentence of at least 30 years in prison.
Peterson attorney Steven Greenberg said the charges “seem a bit absurd” because Peterson would have nothing to gain by trying to have Glasgow killed.
“This is completely out of character and inconsistent with everything I know about (Peterson),” Greenberg said. “I’ll wait to see what evidence they have.”
It would appear that his attorney knows nothing about his wife killing client.

Fourth Grade Girls Planned to Kill Teacher with Hand Sanitizer at Elba Elementary School in Elba, NY
MEAN GIRLS: Unbelievable, plot to kill school teacher results in no charges against juveniles …
According to the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office, three 4th grade girls plotted to kill their teacher at the Elba Elementary school in Elba, NY. The three evil punks planned to put hand sanitizer, some thing that the teacher was highly allergic to, on different items the teacher would touch. Their intent was to get the teacher extremely sick. However, because the plot was caught before it could be implemented the 3 students will not face any charges and the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office has closed their case after finding no crime had been committed. UNREAL. So in order to arrest a juvenile and charge them, they needed to kill the teacher. WHAT LOGIC. The police said the their of the three was that the girls said the teacher is “mean.” What are the odds these three juvenile delinquents will be in trouble in the future? The school district is taking over the investigation.
Deputies with the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office say a group of fourth graders planned to kill their teacher at Elba Elementary School.
According to the incident report, the Elba Elementary School principal called authorities after discovering a plot to harm the teacher.
Three students, all girls, are accused of planning to put hand sanitizer on different items the teacher would touch. That teacher is highly allergic to hand sanitizer, and police say the students knew this would hurt the teacher.
Sheriff’s deputies and other officials met with the children accused of the plot and their parents. At least one parent said the children knew the teacher could become very sick from contact with hand sanitizer, according to the incident report.
One of the mothers said after learning about the plan, she contacted the school. Another set of parents said they knew about it as well, but did not tell anyone.
The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office has closed their case after finding no crime had been committed. Because the plot was never carried out, police say the students are not facing charges.
EXIT QUESTION: SO LET’S UNDERSTAND THIS … THE POLICE GET CALLED TO SCHOOLS AND STUDENTS GET SUSPENDED BECAUSE STUDENTS MAKE A GUN WITH THEIR FINGER AND THUMB OR EAT A POP TART IN THE SHAPE OF A GUN, BUT A BUNCH OF STUDENTS PLOT TO KILL A TEACHER AND THAT GOES UNPUNISHED.
UPDATE I: Two of the student have been suspended. WOW, suspended. What a future these three girls have, there will be plenty of mean people they meet along the way in life, are they going to plot to kill them too? What are the odds that these kids have never been smacked upside their heads for bad behavior?
