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:

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.

Rolling Stone Sales Skyrocket In Wake Of Controversial Boston Bomber Cover!

rolling stone Dzhokhar Tsarnaev cover sales up twenty percent august boston bombings

We guess it's true what they say, there is no such thing as bad press!

Rolling Stone pissed off a flock of fans, advertisers, distributors, and even folks who didn't realize the magazine was still in print when it plastered Dzhokhar Tsarnaev — one of the alleged masterminds behind the Boston Marathon bombings — on it's August cover!

Boston officials — and even Jack Osbourne — raised hell over the cover, which certainly seemed to glorify the man charged with bringing a crap-ton of destruction down on the fine metropolis, and drug stores like CVS, 7-Eleven, and Walgreens flatly refused to carry copies of the issue at all!!

You'd think that might put a dent in sales, even if just a little bit!

And you'd be wrong!!

7-Eleven BANS The Rolling Stone Boston Bomber Issue Too!!

rolling stone dzhokhar tsarnaev 7 eleven cvs cover ban boycott

By now, you know our stance on Rolling Stone's decision to put Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (one of the Boston Bombers) on the cover of their magazine: they had every right to do it, but that doesn't mean they should have.

First we heard that CVS was taking a stand against the insensitive placement, one that is usually an honor for those who are lucky enough to get on the cover because it's a sign of having 'made it' to fame. Now, we're hearing that the magazine has been pulled out of nearly 2,000 7-Eleven stores, with more on the horizon.
