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.
