The jury has just given Boston Marathon bomber Dzokhar Tsarnaev the death penalty.
Despite the best efforts of Sister Helen Prejean to convince the jury of Tsarnaev's remorse, the jury didn't buy it. I guess Susan Sarandon wasn't available.
Tsarnaev can tell Sister Prejean he believes no one should have suffered like they did it doesn't change the fact that he placed a bag of explosives at the feet of an 8-year old boy and detonated them.
Yes, it's true that Martin Richard's parents didn't want the death penalty. But where is the justice in Tsarnaev getting three squares a day and a color TV?
It's true that Tsarnaev will appeal and the appeals process will take years. But under the circumstances this was the only viable decision the jury could make.
It couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
