Boston Marathon Bomber Gets Death Penalty
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the man behind the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing attack that killed three people and injured over two hundred, has been sentenced to die by lethal injection.
While I have absolutely zero sympathy for this guy, I also am a little disappointed in him getting sentenced to die, for the reason that I think it serves to give him what he wants, and makes him somewhat of a martyr. In all honesty, I think the idea of him rotting in prison would have been preferable. In general, I am opposed to the death penalty because I don't have enough faith in the justice system to get it right, and there have been far too many innocent people cleared, that were once on death row. He definitely deserves to die, though. If there was ever an argument for having the death penalty, this guy would represent it.
