Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty of all 30 out of 30 charges for his role in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

The 21-year-old Boston bomber now awaits the penalty phase. 17 of the 30 counts against him may even call for the death penalty.

Three people — Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu and 8-year-old Martin Richard — were killed by the two bombs Dzhokhar and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev set off during the busy race. Dozens of others were injured and maimed in the attack.

A fourth — Officer Sean Collier — was shot killed in the manhunt that followed the bombings.

Boston Marathon Victim Becomes A Racer After Losing Foot!

Filed under: ZportzInspirationHealthInjury

If the Boston bombers' goal was to create a stronger Boston, and to motivate individuals to turn a negative into a positive while making their lives better, well, we guess they succeeded!

If they wanted to cause terror, though, it was short lived and SUCH A FAILURE. Boston is badass, and the people are SO STRONG.

Take Mery Daniel, for instance. She lost part of her leg and her entire foot at the Boston Marathon bombing, and had never really found the motivation to enter an athletic race or anything of the sort.

But guess what! She's now a racer because of it, and uses her near-death experience as a positive driving force in her life! It doesn't matter if she has a prosthetic leg, because she's already completed

Two Students And Friends Of Accused Boston Bomber Indicted On Obstruction Of Justice Charges!

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov, students from Kazakhstan and college friends of the accused Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were just indicted by a grand jury on charges of obstruction of justice today, according to the U.S. Attorney's office for Massachusetts.

The pair are being accused of removing Dzhokhar's backpack containing fireworks, and his laptop from his dorm room, after the FBI released pictures of Dzhokhar and his brother in order to discover their identities.

Dias and Azamat already potentially face 5 years in prison, having been previously charged with conspiracy, and if convicted of obstruction of justice for helping to hide evidence, they could serve an additional 20 years.

The two are currently in federal custody and await trial.

This news reminds us of that sad day in April, a tragedy that still is so fresh in our minds and hearts. So sad.
