AverageAmericanGuy: Forced into the act by his crazed brother, Dzhokhar had no option but to go along with the plan.
AverageAmericanGuy: The real terrorist was his older brother. The prosecution is just looking for a scapegoat, because they've already killed the actual perpetrator of the violence.
Bruce Campbell: Arkanaut: I figured it would be something like that, but it's still kinda weird that they have to issue another warrant.It's as if the State and Federal Goverments were two different entities with two different legal systems or something.
Target Builder: Ambivalence: The state can have him when the Feds are done with him.After the several thousand year prison sentence the feds will slap him with he probably won't be fit to stand trial for the state charges.
AverageAmericanGuy: what_now: AverageAmericanGuy: Forced into the act by his crazed brother, Dzhokhar had no option but to go along with the plan.Well, no.He could have decided not to drop a bomb in a crowd. That was an option.Sure, big brother was a loser who couldn't fit in and decided to blame society for his failings, convinced his little brother to go along, but the guy killed four people and maimed dozens more. He doesn't get a pass.We'll see.
cryinoutloud: Who? Oh that guy. Didn't he only kill, like, three people? That's not even a mass shooting's worth. Plus he's like, HOT.Time served, five years probation. And the state had better pay for the plastic surgery he's going to need for his injuries. I hope his looks weren't affected. Damn shame, that.
mark_bert: So is this something along the lines of, "if he somehow gets off on the federal charges, the state can follow up and still get him" or is it, "he'll get life with no parole or even the death penalty on the federal charges but we have a DA who needs to do some grandstanding to get reelected so we're going to piss away a bunch of money prosecuting him a second time."?
Ambivalence: The state can have him when the Feds are done with him.
