Death penalty sought for accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
Washington Times ^

Posted on 01/30/2014 11:29:20 AM PST by bryan999

Federal prosecutors will seek the death penalty against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, accused of orchestrating last year’s Boston Marathon bombing along with his brother Tamerlan, the Justice Department announced Thursday.

“After consideration of the relevant facts, the applicable regulations and the submissions made by the defendant’s counsel, I have determined that the United States will seek the death penalty in this matter,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement. “The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision.”

Authorities say the Tsarnaev brothers plotted the backpack bomb attack that killed three people and injured hundreds of others on April 15.

Buh, buh, buh, but....didn’t the FBI, CIA, DHS and all them fellas proactively defend us from this heinous attack like they try to imply every time one of them or Obama gets in front of a camera?

Why, then, did they let this setup get to the state we have to execute a poor little Muslim dupe who was only doing what Muslims do best?

Why not send him to Guantanomo and torture him for the names of terrorists in his homeland, and hand that list to Putin for appropriate family therapies?

I don’t want him executed until we learn all the facts
about the case—ie, there was that suspect killed while
being interrogated by the FBI in Florida.

As well, I don’t believe that the two brothers were alone;
I think they had help. So who were their helpers?

I trust this Tsarnaev kid, who hasn't been convicted of anything, more than Holder.

No but some fed judge he gave a life time appointment can.

Weapon uses is the child’s own SHOE LACES!
19 years going on 20 on TN death row, DNA proof. He raped, strangled to death with her own shoe laces Nicki Read and then threw her body in the river.
http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2012/dec/20/millington-death-row-inmate-loses-bid-to-reopen/?print=1

Even helped hunt for what was thought to be a missing child. The INJUSTICE system does not give a flip how much money or grief it causes the victim’s family to have this crap delayed and delayed, and then finally some anti-death penalty justice will void the sentence and give life with parole, which means more grief to fight the suckers. And criminals have MORE rights that the victim or victim’s family!

Funny, Federal prosecuters pretty much give the criminals they like carte blanche these days.

I guess the NWO/CIA/DOJ wants no loose ends on this one.

Not sure what the motives are for this former attorney for terrorists. Either he figures that the DP would make a verdict less likely, acquittal more likely... or, perhaps he plans to put the DP itself on trial.

Doogie the Terrorist will not get the death penalty, though he deserves it. He’ll get all the cushy benefits that threatening the United States can bring to a terrorist. A life of ease at the cost of the citizens he caused to lose their freedom, in that awful, unConstitutional “lockdown” of an American city.

Yep, you're right.

They'll milk him for everything he's willing to spill....after they promise him life without chance of parole in a plea deal.

Why will he probably not burn or get the needle?......because federal death sentences ARE RARELY CARRIED OUT.

The federal government (in comparison to the separate states) applies the ultimate sentence for certain crimes: treason, espionage, federal murder, large-scale drug trafficking and, in certain cases, attempted murder of a witness, juror or court officer.

ONLY TWENTY-SIX federal (including military) executions have been carried out SINCE 1950 !

As of January 19, 2004, fifty-nine men and two women are on Death Row in federal slammers.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's chances of living to an unripe old age are pretty darn good....whether he sings like bird or not.

how amusing to watch the liberals twist like pretzels.
marty walsh, mayor of boston, voted against the death penalty as a state senator. at his press conference he was asked if he is still against the death penalty.
he said he is against the death penalty but supports holder’s decision. do liberals have even a scrap of integrity?

Probably should blow off his legs and let him lie on a sidewalk in Boston for an hour or so. Seems fair, he did it to a kid and and didn’t think it was “cruel and unusual.”

Odd how Tim McVeigh's appeals process and ultimate death sentence was fast-tracked. And where were all the anti-DP activists? Other than a dozen or so Jesuits outside the prison on the day he was executed doing a rather lackluster rendition of Jesus carrying the Cross. Same thing with Lawrence Brewer, executed for lynching James Bird. One of his cohorts, John King is still on death row while his appeals play out. Since Bill Ayers, during the debate with D'nesh D'Souza considers capitol punishment so repugnant perhaps he could intervene on King's behalf? (crickets chirping)

The Saudi prince who was arrested and whisked away - he was one! Boy, they got him out of the country fast. The prince and his fellow Saudis want the kid dead before he gives out any information.
