Tsarnaev Convicted on All 30 Counts

It took a jury less than 12 hours to convict Dzohkar Tsarnaev on all 30 counts in his role in the Boston Marathon Bombings as well as his confrontation with authorities that led to his capture in Watertown four days later.

The defense did everything it could to delay the start of the trial and was assisted by all the snow we had here in late January and early February. But it all forestalled the inevitable. The defense only put on four witnesses before resting on the weak argument that he was an unwilling pawn of his late brother Tamerlan.

I remember when Michael Walsh bellowed that we didn’t need a small army to take out “a wounded teenager with a gun.” Well, that wounded teenager placed a knapsack full of explosives beside an 8-year old boy, detonated it killing him and two young women. He then shot a police officer to death in cold blood, nearly killed another one, carjacked a man and only sparing his life because he wasn’t American and threw explosives at authorities along the way.

Had that small army not stopped the Tsarnaevs they would have taken their act to Times Square where more lives and limbs would have been lost.

The only question now is whether Tsarnaev will be sentenced to die.

Jurors will determine that question perhaps as soon as next week possibly by the time the second anniversary of the attacks come around on April 15th.
