From New York Times email:
A federal jury on Friday condemned Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a failed college student, to death for setting off bombs at the 2013 Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured hundreds more in the worst terrorist attack on American soil since Sept. 11, 2001.
The jury of seven women and five men, which last month convicted Mr. Tsarnaev, 21, of all 30 charges against him, 17 of which carry the death penalty, took more than 14 hours to reach its decision.
I am not sure how I feel about this one. I think I would be more comfortable with life in prison with no chance of parole. I think his age has something to do with it. He is young. He would be around for a long time. I felt the same way about Malvo. I was glad he got life.
For the record: Generally speaking, I am not opposed to the death penalty as long as there is absolute certainty of guilt.
