Boston Bomber Found Guilty On 30 Criminal Counts But Is Hiding Behind His Age In Attempts At Evading The Death Penalty

Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan Tsarnaev (deceased) and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev  

21-year-old Boston bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was found guilty on 30 counts of criminal behavior, including murder, in connection with the 2013 Boston Marathon terrorist attack. Tsarnaev could be given the death penalty for his heinous crimes, committed with brother, Tamerlan, who was killed as they tried to escape police pursuit. The guilty verdict has brought some sense of closure for the innocent victims and their families.

Martin Richard

A few people have tried to argue Tsarnaev is too young and did not know what he was doing. However, he was of age and fully aware of the evil of his conduct and the terribly negative impact it would have on others. 8-year-old Martin Richard bled to death and died because of this foolish, abhorrent attack. Another child lost a limb, as did other survivors. Two adults died because of this criminal behavior. It was a cowardly and grisly attack deserving the strongest legal reproach possible. It is wrong for Tsarnaev and his lawyers to cite age as an excuse. Tsarnaev wanted to play big boy terrorist. It’s time for him to take his punishment like a man.
