    But of course. Unfortunately I can't read the article despite living in the Boston area thanks to the pathetic payment policies just to read the Boston Globe online. Not surprised. The smell of money and notoriety is intoxicating to some.

    Tsarnaev Jurors' Answers On Death Penalty, Islam Released

    December 24, 2018

    "Newly released court documents show at the start of the trial of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, jurors were split on which was a worse fate — life without parole, or the death penalty.

    That's one of several revelations in juror questionnaire answers made available to WBUR on Monday. This is the first time the answers to all 100 questions the seated jurors were asked during jury selection nearly four years ago have been made public.
    More than 1,373 people called for jury service filled the questionnaires out, and Judge George O'Toole ordered on Dec. 13 that the answers of just 18 — the 12 deliberating jurors and six alternates who sat through the trial — be released. (Tsarnaev's attorneys had asked for all the questionnaires filled out be released, but O'Toole denied that.)

    Here is some of what stood out about what the 12 deliberating jurors said in response to the 100 questions:..."

    Boston Marathon bomber’s lawyers want death sentence tossed

    December 27, 2018

    "BOSTON (AP) — Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s convictions or death sentence should be tossed because it was impossible for him to get a fair trial in the same city where the shrapnel-packed, pressure cooker bombs exploded, his lawyers told a federal appeals court on Thursday.

    In a 500-page brief filed in the 1st U.S. District Court of Appeals, Tsarnaev’s legal team outlined a host of other problems with his 2015 trial, during which the defense admitted from the outset that he and his older brother carried out the attack. His appellate lawyers are also pointing to issues with jurors, certain testimony from surviving victims and the defense’s inability to tell jurors about links between Tsarnaev’s brother and an unsolved triple killing in 2011.

    His lawyers argue the trial court judge’s “first fundamental error” was denying the defense’s repeated requests to move the case out of a city that was “traumatized by the bombings, ordered to shelter in place during the manhunt, saturated by prejudicial publicity and united in the Boston Strong movement.”

    “This case should not have been tried in Boston,” the attorneys wrote...."

    Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should not have been tried in Boston, appellate lawyers say

    "...“When police arrested 19-year-old Jahar Tsarnaev, crowds flooded the streets in relief and jubilation. The community’s trauma and catharsis birthed Boston Strong, a movement that at once proclaimed defiance, resilience, and solidarity,” lawyers wrote. “The bombings united a region broken but brave. And as Tsarnaev’s trial began, ‘Boston ha[d] not yet fully recovered, and . . . every resident—whether or not they were at the [M]arathon that day, knew a victim, or were subject to the shelter-in-place order—was deeply and personally affected by the tragedy.'"

    The court "deprived Tsarnaev of an impartial jury and a reliable verdict, in violation of the Fifth, Sixth, and Eighth Amendments,” lawyers wrote.

    Juror 286 had tweeted two dozen times about the bombings, calling Tsarnaev a “piece of garbage” and describing being locked down with her family. She swore in her jury selection that she had not commented on the attack or been forced into a “shelter in place.”

    Another person on the jury - Juror 138 - participated in a Facebook conversation about the case “where one of his friends urged him to ‘play the part,’ ‘get on the jury,’ and ‘send’ Tsarnaev ‘to jail where he will be taken care of,’” according to lawyers. This was a violation of the court’s order, and stood in contrast to his sworn testimony that none of his Facebook friends had been commenting on the trial, lawyers argued...."

    Legal group believes new jurors would sympathize with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

    January 2, 2019

    "The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers is offering to throw its might behind convicted terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the belief that a new jury equipped with deeper insight into his relationship with his older brother would be reluctant to condemn him to death.

    “In short, there simply is no set of facts too barbaric and no defendant too unsympathetic or lacking in remorse for a capital sentence to become inevitable. Even in the most aggravated cases, mitigation far less compelling than what Dzhokhar Tsarnaev would be able to present at a new trial has moved jurors, and it only takes a single juror to prevent a death sentence,” the advocates argue in a proposed amicus brief it wants the U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston to consider as part of the 25-year-old’s bid for life....

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s public appellate lawyers filed their 1,124-page opening brief in support of a new trial Thursday. It has since been sealed by the court. A date has not been set by which federal prosecutors must respond...."

    BOSTON BOMBING AMPUTEE 'THROWN INTO THE AIR' AFTER BEING HIT BY CAR :(

    1/8/19

    "A dancer who survived the 2013 Boston marathon bombing, losing part of her leg, was hit by a car this weekend.

    In an Instagram post, Adrianne Haslet-Davis wrote that she had been struck by a car on Boston’s Commonwealth Avenue while using a crosswalk.

    “Thrown into the air and landed, crushing the left side of my body. Yesterday,” she wrote in a caption to a picture of herself in a hospital bed Sunday.

    “I’m completely broken. More surgery to come.”

    Police told the Boston Globe that the accident happened at 7.15 p.m. Saturday, and the driver claimed that he did not see Haslet-Davis on the crosswalk because it was dark and she was wearing dark clothing.

    The driver remained at the scene and was cited for failing to stop at a pedestrian crosswalk, police told the newspaper.

    They added that Haslet-Davis's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening...."

    Group of attorneys believe Boston Marathon bomber should be granted new trial (with clip)

    Jan 9, 2019

    "Eight prominent Boston-area lawyers are on the record in support of a new trial for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, arguing that he didn't get a fair trial in the city.

    Although Tsarnaev admitted to his role in the deadly bombing, his defense team is looking for a second chance.

    In a recent filing, the self-described "distinguished local citizens" argue the court "made a grievous error in insisting this case be tried in Boston."

    They believe the jury was too traumatized by the bombings to impartially decide his fate....."

    CAIR still fighting Boston Marathon bombing Ibragim Todashev case, attacking FBI agent Aaron McFarlane

    Mar 28th, 2019

    "Prosecutors have asked U.S. District Court Judge George A. O’Toole Jr. to provide Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers, who are working on an appeal of his conviction, to keep the evidence secured. An appeals case regarding the murder of one suspect tied to the bombers, Ibrahim Todashev/Ibragim Todashev has also been dismissed. The claim in that case is that the student attacked the federal agent, but CAIR and other Islamic groups are defending the man. See their press release below...."

    Feds want Tsarnaev barred from reading secret talks about his brother

    March 28, 2019

    "Prosecutors have asked U.S. District Court Judge George A. O’Toole Jr. to provide Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers, who are working on an appeal of his conviction, access to confidential discussions about his brother’s alleged role in the grisly slayings of three men.

    The transcript of the July 3, 2014, conference that took place between O’Toole and federal prosecutors remains sealed from public view. The U.S. Attorney’s Office has asked to keep it that way.

    Should O’Toole grant the request, assistant U.S. Attorney Nadine Pellegrini stressed in her motion filed Tuesday, a “lightly redacted” version of the transcript would be shared with the terrorist’s appellate counsel, but that should not be shown to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev...."

    Tsarnaev lawyers pushing to toss death sentence

    June 6, 2019

    "The opening brief in the Boston Marathon bomber’s appeal has been filed under seal, while prosecutors and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers battle over the disclosure of a key interview regarding a 2013 triple homicide.

    Tsarnaev’s counsel asked the court to seal their reply in support of a motion to disclose on appeal recordings of Ibragim Todashev’s final interview with law enforcement, a court filing from June 5 shows.

    The convicted bomber’s defense is asking the Appeals Court to reverse his 2015 death sentence and order a punishment of life imprisonment....

    Boston Marathon bomber had fair trial despite news deluge, U.S. prosecutors argue in appeal

    June 27, 2019

    "BOSTON (Reuters) - Prosecutors on Thursday urged a federal appeals court to reject Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's claim that trying his case in a city reeling from an attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260 others deprived him of a fair trial.

    The U.S. Justice Department told the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston that Tsarnaev, 25, received a fair trial before he was sentenced to death even after a judge declined to move the case to another city....

    Prosecutors also urged the appeals court to reject his other arguments that the trial judge ignored evidence that two jurors had commented on the case on social media before being picked and prevented the defense from telling jurors about Tsarnaev's brother's ties to a 2011 triple murder...."

    Young Texas Man Planned to Join ISIS Overseas or Attack in the US

    July 11, 2019

    "A young Texas man pleaded guilty to terrorism charges after he was caught trying to join ISIS and providing information to fellow ISIS supporters about how to use machetes, make automatic weapons and build explosives.
    Kaan Sercan Damlarkaya, a now 20-year-old U.S. citizen from Houston, tried to join and support ISIS from August 2017 until his arrest in December 2017.

    Under a plea deal, Damlarkaya admitted to charges of material support for a terrorist group and the government dropped a charge of unlawfully distributing bomb-making instructions.

    Damlarkaya had many conversations online with people he believed to be fellow ISIS supporters. During these conversations, he described how he intended to travel to Syria or Afghanistan to fight with ISIS. If he was unable to pull off joining ISIS overseas, he said he planned to carry out a terrorist attack on non-Muslims in the United States.
    In those conversations, he said it was his “dream” to be a martyr.

    Prosecutors say his goal was to perpetrate an attack similar to the Boston Marathon bombings, where brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev set off two homemade pressure cooker bombs at the finish line of the event in April 2013. Three people were killed in that attack and several hundred injured, including 16 who lost limbs....

    Damlarkaya faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a maximum $250,000 possible fine at his sentencing hearing, which is scheduled for September 2019...."

    Tsarnaev among federal inmates on death row
    The DOJ announced Thursday it would resume executions on federal death row inmates. Tsarnaev was sentenced to death in 2015 for the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.


    July 25, 2019

    "FLORENCE, Colo — The Department of Justice on Thursday announced it would resume executions of federal death row inmates for the first time since 2003.

    According to deathpenaltyinfo.org, there are currently 62 federal death row prisoners facing capital punishment. Among them is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who in 2015 was convicted of planting bombs at the 2013 Boston Marathon....

    In its announcement Thursday, the DOJ identified five inmates that are set to be executed this winter — Tsarnaev is not one of them....

    All five executions are scheduled to take place Dec. 9 through Jan. 15 at U.S. Penitentiary Terre Haute in Indiana.

    The DOJ said additional executions will be scheduled at a later date."

    Six Years After the Tragedy, the Boston Marathon Bombing Memorial Is Complete

    AUGUST 19, 2019

    "BOSTON — Three stone pillars were placed Monday near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, marking the final step in a $2 million effort to memorialize the bombing that killed three people.

    The understated monument of granite and bronze, which took four years to plan and develop, was supposed to be ready last year for the fifth anniversary of the April 15, 2013, attack, but underwent significant redesigns and other delays....

    The memorial — two distinct pieces separated by about a city block — marks the spots where two pressure cooker bombs detonated near the finish line, killing the three victims and wounding more than 260 others.

    The two pieces each feature granite pillars ringed by towering bronze and glass spires meant to bathe the sites in warm white light...."
