Daily Talker: Life Or Death For Tsarnaev If He’s Convicted In The Marathon Attack?



Out for revenge.

Prosecutors paint a detailed picture of what they say motivated suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

A federal grand jury handed up a 30-count indictment containing charges for the bombings – including the use of a weapon of mass destruction to kill.

It’s the most detailed account from prosecutors that we’ve seen of the days, weeks and months leading up to the attack.

17 of the 30 charges are punishable by death.

Massachusetts repealed the death penalty in 1982 — but these are FEDERAL charges and it will be up to Attorney General Eric Holder to decide what punishment the government will pursue.

If he’s convicted on the charges, should Dzhokhar Tsarnaev be put to death?  Or is life in prison a better punishment?
