Washington, D.C 2nd August, 2020: President Donald Trump demands for the death penalty of Boston Marathon Bomber right after the appeal court has overturned death sentence.
Donald Trump on Sunday expressed his concern over the court decision and said that ” Rarely has anybody deserved the death penalty more than the Boston Bomber, Dzhokhar_Tsarnaev. The court agreed that this “was one of the worst domestic terrorist attacks since the 9/11 atrocities”.
Yet the appellate court tossed out the death sentence. So many lives lost and ruined. The Federal Government must again seek the Death Penalty in a do-over of that chapter of the original trial. Our Country cannot let the appellate decision stand. Also, it is ridiculous that this process is taking so long! Trump Said.
U.S. Appeals Court of the First Circuit Judge Rogeriee Thompson vacated Tsarnaev’s death penalty in a ruling issued Friday, saying the convicted bomber will have to face another jury to determine whether he’ll ultimately be put to death. His life sentences — and his assignment to a notorious supermax prison in Colorado — remain in place.
The April 15, 2013, attack along the Boston Marathon route was perpetrated by Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. It killed three people and injured more than 260 others. Tamerlan Tsarnaev later died in a shootout with police.
