Marathon Bombing verdict's in
Many of you remember the dark days in Massachusetts two years ago, when two brothers "allegedly" set off two bombs near the Marathon finish line, killing three. A few days later, these brothers "allegedly" shot and killed an MIT officer. The jury of seven women and five men just came in with verdicts on all 30 counts, including many sub-counts, and found him guilty of all. As the legal consultant for a local TV station put it, it was a slam-dunk.
Those who lost family and dear friends will NEVER get their loved ones back because of this. However, this verdict might bring a bit of peace to all those who wanted to see some sort of justice for this evil act.
Now the jury will go on to the penalty phase - death, or live in prison. It will be much more difficult decision for these strong jurors than finding him guilty. Prayers for them, if you are a praying person.
