BOSTON — The defense team representing the Boston Marathon bombing suspect got a major boost Monday with the addition of Judy Clarke, a San Diego lawyer who has managed to get life sentences instead of the death penalty for several high-profile clients, including the Unabomber and the gunman in the rampage that injured former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Clarke’s appointment was approved Monday by U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler....

How much are the taxpayers getting ripped off? Last time I hired a lawyer he was awful and I had to pay him. How come this turd gets a great lawyer for free....not pro bono either. See her photo. She is freaky looking

Great question.

I am sure this lawyer is expensive.

Who is paying the bills?

The Governor of Massachusetts paid for their welfare, is he paying for the defense team too.

Some animals are more equal than others. George Zimmerman is a decent American who shot a thug in self defense, so the left hates him. The Tsarnaevs are evil, hateful murderers who intentionally killed an innocent woman and a child while maiming dozens of people who had done nothing to hurt the Tsarnaevs or anyone else. It's no wonder the far left fringe is falling all over themselves to coddle and protect the surviving Tsarnaev while railroading Zimmerman.

The Washington Post is cheering.Well here's something for that filthy bit*h defense lawyer to chew on...pictures of that 8 year old kid who was killed...BLOWN TO BITS...will be shown at the trial.And then victim,after victim,after victim who *survived* will be paraded into the courtroom sporting their artificial arms and legs.And then transcripts of intercepted phone calls,texts and e-mails between her client and jihadis in Yemen,Saudia Arabia,Chechnya and elsewhere will be presented to the jury.

Got that,bit*h?????

Nope,Coupe Deval (that's his nickname here...long story) won't be paying.This is a Federal case so everyone in the country who's actually *productive* will be chipping in for this one.That means about 49% of the adult population judging from last years election results.

But FYI...many people don't know it but Coupe Deval and Osama Obama are *real* close and go back together to their days as "community organizers" in Chicago.

Why a trial - he admitted he did the bombings. Let the 8 year old’s father, disabled mother and disabled sister give him the same treatment that he gave them. Put a bomb in his boxers and blow him up - And Eye for eye, a leg for a leg, a brain for a brain, and a life for life. the muslims always want sharia law give it to them and impune it on this lowlife. Life sentence is not adequate, DEATH.

Undocumented Moslem Tyrant’s Gun-Walking Attorney General:
We will spare NOTHING to protect terrorists and murderers of Americans.
BenGhazi whistleblowers? They will rot in Hell before we help THEM."

Article III, Section 3, Paragraph 1, of the Constitution of the United States:
"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them,
or, in adhering to their Enemies, giving them aid and comfort.
"

The "aid and comfort" prong of treason has been interpreted
by SCOTUS as requiring proof of four elements:
1. an intent to betray the United States (which can be inferred from);
2. an overt act;
3. witnessed by two people; and
4. that provides aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States.

"When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt,
but protects the corrupt from you -
you know your nation is doomed."

-Ayn Rand

Lets just copy his contacts to here as is written in the article......

Two Russian government officials said Tamerlan Tsarnaev exchanged notes over the Internet with William Plotnikov, a boxer who moved with his parents from Russia to Canada before joining militants in the North Caucasus.

...... And they said Mr. Tsarnaev met several times in early 2012 with Mansur Makhmud ‘Nidal’, an alleged militant from the Russian province of Dagestan and suspected jihadist recruiter.

The meetings happened ‘in a mosque in Dagestan’s’ capital of Makhachkala ...’known for its adherence to a puritanical strain of Islam’, they said.

Mr. Nidal died in a firefight in Makhachkala last May after a five-hour standoff that ended with him throwing a grenade at police officials, according to Russian authorities.

Mr. Plotnikov died two months later, in mid-July, during a raid in the hinterland of Utamysh, a village southwest of Makhachkala.

Mr. Tsarnaev was in the region at the time of both raids but ....”left Russia for the U.S. three days after the second one”........ He left before picking up a Russian passport that had been prepared for him at the local migration office in Dagestan’s capital.

“He intended to join the fighters,...... but he lost his contacts,”...... one of the Russian officials said. “In the end he picked an easier enemy in Boston.”

Here’s how cynical I am...
The Bomber will be coached in ‘liberaleese’. He’ll claim that he was protesting US wars (like Bill Ayers’ Weathermen). He’ll get 22 years and while in prison we’ll pay for his doctorate. When he gets out, he’ll be 40 and teaching at Columbia.

Truly, why a special lawyer for a guilty mass murderer and traitor to his country? He should have received the next person on the list for public defense lawyer. WHAT GIVES HERE? Is the entire federal justice system working for the enemies of the U.S.?

A defense lawyer’s job is to represent their client innocent or guilty to best of their ability, though the client is evil. Yes, thugs Jared Lee Loughner who she represented & now this 1 are evil. But please, don’t insult the defense lawyer because the defense lawyer’s doing their job. Let the jury hopefully convict them.

Don’t forget how the left is also treating 911 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, falling over themselves (especially Obama and Holder) to get him tried as a citizen with full constitutional rights rather than tried in a military tribunal. Why? So he has a better chance at freedom. A leftist judge could quite easily dismiss the case due to lack of a speedy trial or torture allegation which is exactly what they want.

Having 12 jurors decide is not a leftist topic. Whether it’s Jared Lee Loughner, this terrorist, etc. please don’t make a scene over this terrorist having a jury decide. Hopefully the jury will convict him & he’ll either get death penalty or life without parole. Military court should only be for those in military service accused of committing crimes-UCMJ but even here, it’s my view that people in military service accused of crime should have choice to either have military court or non-military court decide their fate.
