As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Holder to Seek Death for Tsarnaev

The Justice Department today said it will seek the death penalty for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Islamist who is accused of bombing the Boston Marathon last year, killing three and wounding more than 200. 

This is quite a commendable action by Holder, who is personally against the death penalty. Holder said in a statement:

After consideration of the relevant facts, the applicable regulations and the submissions made by the defendant’s counsel, I have determined that the United States will seek the death penalty in this matter. The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision.

Well, yes, that’s certainly correct. I’m pleasantly surprised Holder put aside his own views on capital punishment to pursue the penalty an overwhelming majority of Americans believe Tsarnaev deserves.

Maybe they should amputate one of Tsarnaev’s legs first. No, that would be cruel and unusual. Well, unusual, at least.

  1. OK fine.
    How long are we going to feed and house him ?
    Are we still paying Hassan, who gunned down our troops at Ft. Hood ?
    Holder is an embarrassment.

  2. I may be a looney, but I think the only reason Holder is going for the death penalty is because the Democrats are in so much trouble. If Obama and the Democrats were polling better and didn’t have Obamacare sinking their ship, I think we’d have a different report.

  3. Since the larger topic here is despicable men I would like to note that Harry Reid, once again took to the podium about the Koch Brothers!

    Which Progressive Demokrat bully wins the Small Man’s Complex? Harry Reid. Rahm Emmanuel.

  4. Now why would the Justice Dept do that? We’re going to be exposed to years of legal wrangling, bleeding hearts declaring his innocence, law school students filing briefs on his behalf, and millions of tax dollars wasted on this murdering terrorist.
    Better yet, seek a long incarceration, put him in the general population of any American prison, and let his real “peers” decide if he lives or dies.

  5. Will this create a new martyr, a focus of yet more seething in the Muslim world? Will it create yet more splodey-dopes in the Caucasus?

    Oh, what the heck. They’re gonna’ seethe and go splodey-dope no matter what happens to him.

    • People who run in that event are an incredibly insignificant percentage of the residents of both Boston and Massachusetts. That statistic pales compared to the percentage of other states from which the runners hale.

      Furthermore, Massachusetts does not have the death penalty, which probably is because it is a Proggish state. And, Boston is even more Proggish than the rest of the state.

      To me, FCMABBHO told his AG to do this in order to help the Democrats in November.
