Supreme Court to reconsider stay of Boston bomber’s death sentence

The Supreme Court announced it would consider whether to reverse a previous decision staying the death sentence of Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on Monday.

The report comes as a challenge to President Joe Biden’s political platform. He ran on a commitment to end the death penalty during his 2020 campaign.

“Over 160 individuals who’ve been sentenced to death in this country since 1973 have later been exonerated,” Biden’s presidential campaign justice reform plan stated. “Because we cannot ensure we get death penalty cases right every time, Biden will work to pass legislation to eliminate the death penalty at the federal level, and incentivize states to follow the federal government’s example.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Monday she had no updates on Biden’s death penalty policy at this point. She declined comments regarding Tsarnaev’s case.

Psaki did note Biden “has grave concerns about whether capital punishment as currently implemented is consistent with the values that are fundamental to our sense of justice and fairness,” and “has also expressed his horror at the events of that day and Tsarnaev’s actions.”

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was convicted of 30 charges involved in the 2013 Boston Marathon. 17 charges included the possibility of a death sentence.

Tsarnaev has admitted involvement in the attack, but argued his older brother was the main leader of the criminal activities. His brother died during their escape when a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer was killed.

His death sentence was thrown out by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, arguing the judge presiding over his case did not adequately ensure an unbiased jury. Former President Donald Trump’s Justice Department appealed the decision.

The case will serve as the first real test to Biden’s support against the death penalty. Many are asking whether the president will serve as a strong force against terrorism, pitting his weaker views against the strong stands Trump took against similar threats.

No do not execute this POS let him get 1400 dollars from the tax payers. This president and the ho are just plain crazy and are ruining this country. You think things are bad now in just under 3 months wait for the rest of the year. This admin. will appoint members of blm and antifa to the justice system if they could…..
Nest time voters do some research and learn who to vote for and DO NOT read the fake newspapers or listen to the lies told on the internet.

I think it was more about hating Trump than voting for Biden – you can’t fix stupid so we’re all screwed. They’ve called in every company that supplies TV programs either via cable or satellite and asked if they were going to continue airing Fox, Newsmax, OANN and if so, WHY. Hard to believe but there are still people who don’t get even one of these stations and frankly, I don’t watch the news anymore and if I did – it wouldn’t be Fox.

I agree with what you’re saying but don’t think it was about people doing research – Biden has been in office for 37 years, if you don’t know he did NOTHING during those years you have to be deaf, dumb, and blind – truly….

James I pray this country is still here when the next round of elections come around. Unfortunately I don’t think it will be. Yet you are 1,000 % correct.

Good call! In the Bible someone who took a life with intentional thought to kill him had to forfeit his own life. If it was an accident, he had to brake reparations to the surviving family members. Work, money, land or whatever was determined by the elders.

There is No doubt of Tsarnaev’s guilt.
None.
Claiming we “may” have made a mistake in applying the death
penalty is a nice intellectual argument.
Pointing out that some people have been exonerated is the same sophistry.
There are still plenty of cases in which there is NO DOUBT of guilt.

This is another such case.

First out of the tens of thousands of death row sentences since 1971, 50 years ago, 160 have been exonerated. Point is, the idea there is much chance in innocents being executed is next to zero, with the incredible appeals process all convicted receive. But this is JUST the point, is it not. The $$$ Cost of the appeals, isolation jail cells for the condemned, special security, etc, JUST DOES NOT ADD UP. Give them life, throw away the key. the point is not whether or not executions are justified, but for most if society can continue to afford the untold millions required to
keep them on death row.

I disagree, it will cost more to provide for them for life. We don’t pay for the attorneys that handle their appeal.
If this person killed someone why does he get to live a long life off our tax dollars.

Tsarnaev has proven himself, his very existence, dangerous to the lives and well being of innocent people whom he did not know and for whom he had no reason to display animosity. He has demonstrated, through his actions, through the death sentence he executed upon his fellow humans, that he approves of killing, his motive apparently that he liked the idea of dealing death. What objection can he now have of it being dealt to him, and for a patently sound reason?

Wow, the Supreme Court can find the time to re-adjudicate this but could not take the time to hear the states cases re: election fraud! Do we even have a fair impartial SCOTUS any longer? This reeks of favoritism.

Jim (@guest_1182936)

aawww Poor little murderer has been abused, mistreated, whine, whine, whine.

AND NOW SCOTUS IS CONSIDERING DOWN GRADING HIS DEATH SENTENCE TO LIFE?

If he thinks it’s bad now, wait till he has to suffer for the rest of his life!

I will NOT lose any sleep over that POS and hope to hell his fellow prisoners continue to just beat the crap out of him, not kill him, just torture him the rest of his life!

It costs hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to house these vermin and i don”t give two sh..ts about how it”s not consistent with our country”s so called sqeeky clean values. Were losing our country and if we don”t start once again to take out the trash instead of bringing it in through the southern border this country won”t last another ten years. And this is apparently what the dems want in thair future plans. So if your a dem or a republican ask your self this question. Is this the future, the country you want for your family? Bringing back the trump administration would set us back on the right track again.
