boston marathon bombing prosecutors seek death penalty Dzhokhar Tsarnaev execution

If the U.S. Department of Justice has its way, one of last year's Rolling Stone cover boys might be executed.

On Thursday Attorney General Eric Holder and federal prosecutors announced they were seeking the death penalty in the trail of alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev!

He stands accused of making homemade bombs with his now deceased brother, Tamerlan, and detonating them near the finish line of last April's Boston Marathon. The explosions killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

If the terror suspect is convicted and subsequently sentenced to death, his would be the first federal execution in over a decade and the highest profile one since Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was given a lethal injection in 2001.

In an eight-page statement prosecutors said:

"Dzhokhar Tsarnaev targeted the Boston Marathon, an iconic event that draws large crowds of men, women and children to its final stretch, making it especially susceptible to the act and effects of terrorism."

Prosecutors say Dzhokar, who was 19 when he allegedly committed these heinous crimes, shows no remorse for the attack.

If convicted, do you think Dzhokhar should be put to death?

    I'm a Bostonian. If you look at all the fucking evidence, he did it. He mooched off of all the progressive services our city had to offer and then fucking bombed us. The conspiracy websites are woefully incorrect and unprepared. Juxtapositioning the bomber with the back-pack that his brother was carrying and claiming it as "proof" that it wasn't him.

    What Rolling Stone did was nothing short of a pathetic, desperate attempt to cause controversy and increase revenue for the luke warm print-industry.

    He deserves the ultimate sentence. Whether it be death, or life in solitary confinement.

    People in the media need to realize that all this coverage of this heinous individual only encourages more psychopaths to follow in his footsteps to achieve the same "fame." This monster doesn't deserve a magazine cover; he deserves severe punishment.

    Remember Boston this didn't have to happen. PUTIN warned obama of these brothers and OUR intelligence people (who are busy spying on all of us) ignored the warning. PUTIN was looking out for US, our people IGNORED HIM>
