On Death Penalty For Boston Bomber, Survivors Have Mixed Feelings
The Boston Marathon bombing trial now moves into the second phase. Yesterday, the jury found Dzhokhar Tsarnaev guilty of all 30 charges against him. Early next week, the same jurors return to federal court to decide Tsarnaev’s fate: either life in prison without parole, or the death penalty.
The people most affected by the Boston Marathon bombings say that for them, the conviction is another step towards closure. But as Jack Lepiarz from Here & Now contributor WBUR reports, survivors of the attack say they have mixed feelings on whether Tsarnaev should be put to death.
