|The Boston Marathon bomber Dzohkar Tsarnaev was found guilty of capital murder.|
Two years ago, two men wanted to cause mass destruction and death at the Boston Marathon. These two men placed pressure cooker explosives near the finish line. The bombs went off around 2:45pm and 2:53pm.
The bombs exploded. The impact killed three and injured hundreds of people. Krystle Marie Campbell, 29, Lu Lingzi 23, a Chinese national and Boston University graduate student from Shenyang, Liaoning; and Martin William Richard, an eight-year-old lost their lives.
The suspects placed the bomb close to little Martin.
The suspects were Tamerlan and Dzhokar Tsarnaev. These two men who lived in Cambridge were immigrants from Chechen region of Russia.
They were spotted on cameras placing the devices. They ran from the scene.
Within the night, they carjacked a man who was heading to work.
They stopped at a gas station to fill up. The man escaped and told the attendant that he was carjacked. The attendant notified the law.
A campus police officer from MIT was nearby. The officer spotted them in the area. As he approached the vehicle, Tamerlan jumped out and put the slugs in him. The MIT officer Sean A. Collier was killed immediately.
After they bucked the MIT officer. The law started to close in.
Tamerlan decided to go out with a bang. He and Dzhokar went into a firefight with the law.
Tamerlan got served a lead sandwich. He would die in the firefight. Dzhokar was injured.
It took about 15 hours to locate Dzhokar hiding in a man's backyard underneath a boat.
These two had the whole Boston metro area on high concern. They thought that they could cause an act of terrorism. They thought they could get away with murder.
|Tamerlan and Dzhokar Tsarnaev were spotted with the backpacks. Inside them were bombs.|
Tamerlan met justice in a hail of fire.
Dzhokar met justice at the hands of a federal grand jury.
Today, the surviving bomber was found guilty on all charges of conspiracy, capital murder (police officer and three bombing victims), and using a weapon of mass destruction.
The 21 year old man who's life is in the hands of a jury could face the GAS or LIFE in federal time out.
The experts considered this an act of terrorism. They were upset over the U.S. intervention in Muslim countries. This event was considered one of the worst post 9/11.
