Boston Marathon’s Bomber’s Trail Begins Today in Boston

 

The trail for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has official begun today in the city of Boston. The trail has finally begun after more than two years after the deadly terrorist attack. Dzhokar is the younger brother of the second Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed after a shootout with police when the two bombers were trying to escape as reported by the Houston Chronicle. His brother had accidentally run him over and killed him as he was trying to escape from police. Dzhoakhar Tsarnaev was 19 years old at the time of the Boston Marathon bombing attack and was a student at Dartmouth College in Massachusetts.

The two brothers were responsible for the death of three people at the bombing and injured over 260 people. Many people had lost limbs and suffered severe trauma after the terrorist attack in Boston. The Boston Marathon bombing has been the worst terrorist attack to occur on US soil since the attacks on the twin towers and the pentagon on September 11th, 2001. It is also the most high profile case of domestic terrorism since the Oklahoma City bombings that targeted a federal building. Both Dzhokhar and Tamerlan were US citizens. They were originally from Chechnya and had become self radicalized.

Today, opening statements for the trail occurred. Tsarnaev’s defense attorney Judy Clarke had admitted that Dzhokhar took part in the bombings and is responsible for the death and injury of countless lives. However, she says that Dzokhar had been influenced by his older brother Tamerlan to join the attack. The prosecution meanwhile stated, that Tsarnaev must be held responsible for his actions and that includes the deaths and injuries that he has caused. He could face the death penalty if he is found guilty.
