The attorney general is running for Governor, and really really wants a piece of this kid.

You see, she's the shiatheel who managed to lose a Senate Election in Massachusetts to a Republican. How? By leaving the country during the campaign, spelling Massachusetts wrong, and insulting Fenway park.

She literally lost Ted Kennedy's Seat to a reactionary nude model, and now she thinks she has a shot- so she's grandstanding on this.

She sucks.

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.

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.


Actually, this guy driving over his older brother was a bit of a factor in his death.

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.


It's a bit more technical than that. The state had already issued an arrest warrant, but this one is based on a new indictment in June. Nothing more than sewing up the legal niceties, keeping everything constitutionally kosher.

He deserves to be in prison for life. I agree with those who say he was in thrall to his older brother. Unfortunately, once you pass 18 years old it is incumbent upon the individual to NOT allow yourself to be co-opted by your even more evil older brother.

As for the state prosecution, I'd say skip it. Money-wasting grandstanding. I understand the emotional issues and all that shiat. I'd say, sure, prosecute him at the state level as well... IF I didn't know that it would cost tens of millions of dollars and tie up legal resources that are already quite tight so I'm going to say they ought to skip it. They have this bomber - were it my state I'd much prefer spending those tens of millions making sure the next guy doesn't happen... not on some photo-op show trial of a guy who will never see the light of day again.

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.


Meh.

He'll get three consecutive, billion-year sentences in federal court, then they'll try him in state court and sentence him to FOUR consecutive, billion-year sentences, to be served after he dies in SuperMax 60 years from now. It's all grandstanding at this point. The worst thing would be to give him the death penalty, leading to decades of expense and further publicity. You know what leads to mass homicides more than anything else? Publicity about mass homicides. Soft-brained, depressed narcissists see that notoriety and want it for themselves.

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."?

We'll see.


not really an argument.  duress (or forcing someone to do something) is not a defense for murder.  So, even if his brother put a gun to his head, that does raise a defense for murder.

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.


Or have him stand in front of a claymore so he can learn what it feels like to have his lags blown off.

The Feds are gonna kill him anyway. Let the state have at it if for some reason they screw that up. Besides, IIRC Mass doesn't have the death penalty which is exactly what this a-hole deserves.

Drag his ass into court.
Wheel him in on a hand truck with a faking hockey mask on.
I don't care.
The people deserve a fair and speedy trial, followed by a minimal cost to the taxpayer until such time as he is justifiably executed like the mad dog that he is.

Fark him.
