Dzhokhar Tsarnaev eligible for death penalty after being found guilty of 2013 Boston Marathon bombing

Rebel Staff


The surviving brother in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing has been found guilty of multiple charges.  

The terrorist actions of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan resulted in the deaths of three people while 260 were injured on April 15, 2013.

Dzhokhar and Tamerlan detonated two pressure cookers near the marathon's finish line downtown.

Federal prosecutor Aloke Chakravarty said planting the bomb near a group of children was “a cold, calculated terrorist act.”

A jury also heard that Tsarnaev made a “bloodthirsty” decision to punish America for its wars in Muslim countries, according to The Mirror.

The Chechen, who moved to the US as a child, was also found guilty of killing police officer Sean Collier during a shootout with police.

The guilty verdict means Tsarnaev is eligible for the death penalty. The same jury will decide that found him guilty will decide his fate. Sentencing begins on Monday.

Tsarnaev’s defence lawyers tried to convince the jury that he been coerced by his brother.

“For this destruction, suffering and profound loss, there is no excuse. No one is trying to make one. Planting bombs at the Boston Marathon one year and 51 weeks ago was a senseless act,” defence attorney Judy Clarke said in her closing statement.

I fail to see…even if I use advanced optics….what relationship there might be between the grievances the Chechens have with Russia and any foreign policy of the United States…except perhaps that what is done to ANY moslem is done to a Chechen…and THAT is a stretch .

Yet another temper tantrum to get attention.

If you commit deliberate protracted murder in a jurisdiction were you knew or augth to have known that there is a death penalty stupidity does not mitigate the kharma.

Of course Christians don’t believe in the death penalty. You may have heard it said an eye for an eye but that is Jewish law not God’s law. Forgive your enemies. Turn the other cheek and several other pages could be shown .

He was a Chechen Islamist . Of course it was political, as political as it was religious. “how is it religiously motivated if he targets general society”, well, I’d say the same way the twin towers, or the Jewish coffee shop in Paris was. I also think that although death is probably too good for him, its probably the only way we’ll never see him again. Convicted on all 30 counts, I don’t think we have the wrong guy. It would send a message, one that needs to be sent.

If he gets the death penalty I hope a female administers the injection then he won’t get his 72 virgins.

Again frethinker drop your bigotry, how is it religiously motivated if he targets general society. It’s political. You don’t know what religion is but you condemn it every chance you get (Obama). I will remind you that real Christians don’t take any society by force, but by conversion ( Rome converted willingly)Even the crusades were to relieve the invasion and occupation of Europe and were only a counteract. You need to check your history

Ten dollars that he will not have the death penalty. Wait for the lefty violins to start playing and the poor little boy who was forced into this by the bad dead brother will be spared the death penalty and instead will granted a roof all meals included, colour TV, Gymnasium and will be taken care by the state and the taxes money for his entire life.

So now we have this phoney boloney lawyer who will try to convince the jury that poor little “Joker” was a pawn, he just followed his big brother and isn’t really responsible , culpable for his actions. Well at least to the degree that he is deserves the death penalty. What a total bunch of nonsense. Rubbish. He was old enough to participate in the planning and execution of the act. Old enough to know right from wrong . Old enough and smart enough to have voluntas necandi , the will to kill. He and his brother chose their victims. They even chose who they would spare. The cowardice of the acts dictate the untimate penalty. Death.

Well, Tsarnaev is a stupid convict, that is for sure.

I don’t agree with everything Bill Mahar says but he widely condemns jihadis and Islamists and has a big audience on the left where there is a dire need for the truth to be heard.

He points out how stupid many homegrown terrorists are and how disproportionate the money they spend on terrorizing us and what we spend fighting them.

Thankful he was found guilty of this senseless act of religiously inspired terrorism. “Tsarnaev made a “bloodthirsty” decision to punish America for its wars in Muslim countries” , yet again religion is a problem for the world in general.

Hang him!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don’t tell me, don’t tell me…..the left is saying:

“Child Soldier”
“Mentally ill”
“Lone wolf”
There is not much difference between this guy and what Omar Khadr did in Afghanistan.

Let the wailing, moaning and gnashing of teeth from the Left begin.

There will be appeals, and leftists all trying to keep this POS alive.
