DOJ wants Supreme Court to reinstate death penalty for Boston Marathon bomber
[NYPOST] The Justice Department wants the US Supreme Court
...the political football known as The Highest Court in the Land, home of penumbrae and emanations...
to reinstate the death penalty
for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, saying the horrific nature of his crime warrants a more "just conclusion."The Justice Department wrote in court documents filed Monday that the appellate court had erred when tossing Tsarnaev’s death sentence
...the barbaric practice of sentencing a murderer to be punished for as long as his/her/its victim is dead...
last July due to jury selection concerns in the attack that killed three people and injured 260 others in April 2013.

"The jury carefully considered each of the respondent’s crime and determined that capital punishment was warranted for the horrors that he personally inflicted — setting down a shrapnel bomb in a crowd and detonating it, killing a child and a promising young student, and consigning several others to a ’lifetime of unimaginable suffering,’" Justice Department attorneys wrote in a 48-page brief.

The ruling by the jurors "deserves respect and reinstatement" by the nation’s highest court, attorneys for President Joe Biden
...... 46th president of the U.S. The very model of probity.......
’s administration said despite his public opposition to the death penalty.

Former Attorney General Bill Barr told the News Agency that Dare Not be Named last year that the administration of President Donald Trump
...Oh, noze! Not him!...
would do "whatever’s necessary" to reinstate Tsarnaev’s death penalty.

#1 Unfortunate AG Barr couldn't do.... "whatever’s necessary" to bring Robert Durham's Trump-Russian probe to the light of day. Some degree of finality, reports, findings, indictments, etc.

The Tsarnaev debacle is simply an issue the Deep State wishes to flush down the memory hole. As long as Dzhokhar is still alive, he can share his thoughts and information.

The status of the late Tameran Tsarnaev's wife and Islamic convert Katherine Russell (see graphic) is a far greater curiosity. Yes, she's the one who also lived in the small apartment/bomb factory. Again, I am always eager to hear the details of those not being mentioned, talked about, or questioned.

#2 Ah come on people. You have got to strike directly at the government to get a death penalty - see OKC. The rest of you are expendable for the ruling caste's virtue flashing.

#5  The status of the late Tameran Tsarnaev's wife and Islamic convert Katherine Russell (see graphic) is a far greater curiosity.

The latest I can find is a few articles from last year, Besoeker:

In July 2020, Distractify reported she remarried and has a second child with the unnamed husband.

In April 2020, the Daily Mail published photos of her — in headscarf — and Tamarlane’s daughter taken from Facebook. She was apparently still on an FBI watchlist and mentioned in a book about the Boston Marathon bombing by Michele McPhee.

#6 The DOJ argued that the Supreme Court should reinstate the death penalty for Tsarnaev after an appeals court vacated the sentence. It was the Trump DOJ that had first pushed for this, and while the Biden White House has not interfered, they publicly disagreed with the move.

White House keeps publicly disagreeing with DOJ decisions while stressing their independence

#7 I did a pretty in-depth open-source analysis of the Boston Marathon bombing and the Tsarnaev bros. back in 2013. I still believe the Tamerlan Tsarnaev was an intelligence community source gone bad. The younger brother might have simply been along for the ride.
