Dzhokhar Tsarnaev flipping off a camera

Is this the photo that will kill him? Footage of Boston Bomber flipping off camera three months after terror attack is released

This jarring image of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev flipping off a camera three months after his arrest may be the nail in the coffin on his chances of avoiding the death penalty – but defense attorneys for the convicted terrorist say it was taken out of context.

Prosecutors showed the never-before-seen image of the terrorist in court on Tuesday, during their opening statements, but it wasn’t released to the public until Wednesday when it was entered into evidence.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Nadine Pellegrini said the striking image was Tsaranev’s ‘message to America’ and evidence that he is unrepentant for the crime and therefore deserving of the death penalty.

    He doesn’t seem very repentant.
    In fact, quite the opposite.

    • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

      Flipping the bird is the universal hand gesture of defiance, NOT repentance.

    • tom_billesley

      Looking for repentence from someone who doesn’t think what he did is a crime is unlikely to be successful.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    Hopefully he gets the death penalty. He has certainly earned it.

    If this Islamist p.o.s. were being tried under his beloved Sharia law he would be executed as punishment for committing murder.

    Koran 5:32 –> ‘if any one slew a person – lest it be for murder’ = murderers get executed under Sharia/Allah’s/MUHAMMAD’s legal system … eye for an eye, as they say

    Besides all of that, executing the former Rolling Stone cover-boy will send the left into a lather. đŸ˜‰

      You know they would try to get a gurney picture of him strapped down and getting the needle, and then make some stupid anti-Christian reference that look deep to idiots.

      I think it might be preferable to jail him with the sex offenders so they can get their virgin seventy-two times!

      • Ottawa Eyes

        Don’t you mean so they can EACH get their virgin 72 times?

    Just make sure he’s covered in swine guts before the lethal injection is administered.

      They could switch out his lethal injection pharmaceuticals for household cleaning products and drain cleaners.

    Being ethnic Chechen, he should be 50% of the way to a successful insanity plea as a given. Input from a few high priced lefty headshrinkers should be enough to push him over the goal line and hoodwink the jury.

    Fry him. Fry him and his family, and his friends.

    • They’ve not been proven guilty of anything, Walter. You can’t just go around frying people because you don’t like their associates.

        … bummer.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Silence weakling!
        I do admit, that practice sounds good in this instance.
        Mom frys
        Sisters fry
        Sister inlaw frys
        He frys

        All his friends that helped him hide the bomb evidence

        And how come we never heard anything more about one of his buds that flipped out and tried to stab his interviewing FBI agents, who promptly ventilated his head?
        I always thought that was odd.

    Chop off his middle fingers. Chop off his opposable thumbs. Sentence him to a lifetime of solitary confinement assembling 100 pressure cookers a day.

      drop him over mecca , about 20000 feet

    Oh what shrinking violets everyone is. Ever been in court? People scream and threaten all the time. Curse, yell etc. That’s why they’re all chained together like animals. They ARE animals.
