Boston Bombing Suspect

I'm Not Guilty

0710_dzhokhar_tsarnaev_AP
Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev insists he wasn't the one behind the horrific explosions in April that killed 3 people and injured 260 more -- pleading not guilty today in Boston federal court.

19-year-old Tsarnaev pled not guilty to 30 counts total -- including use of a weapon of mass destruction to kill.

Federal prosecutors are currently deciding whether to pursue the death penalty for Tsarnaev. FYI, there is no death penalty in Massachusetts, but since Tsarnaev is facing multiple federal charges, the death penalty is on the table.

Dzhokar's brother Tamerlan -- who was believed to have committed the atrocity with him -- was killed three days following the bombing in a shootout with police.

Dzhokar remains in custody.

I am no conspiracy theorist by any means, but I'm inclined to believe this guy. I know, I'm going to be downvoted into oblivion and I'm anti-American, but considering what the US has done in the past, it's not outrageous to think they framed this kid to say to citizens "we got 'em" and look like the good guy, with all the commotion that has been going on as of late. The Tuskagee experiements. The drugging of innocent people in the 60s just so scientists can record their reactions from afar. WMDs. It doesn't make one a complete whack job for questioning these things.

His face was plastered all over every news station in the country pinning him to this crime; I mean you saw the manhunt on tv. Many of you would have run too. *steps off soap box*

wtf?    

And this circus right here, ladies and gentlemen, is why a sniper should have put a bullet in his head while he was cowering in the boat (while scribbling admissions of bombing Americans). He's on f#cking videotape dropping the backpack at the feet of an innocent 10 year old boy who was blown to bits. Who are the F#cking bastard lawyers repping this muslim p.o.s.?

He didn't say he hadn't done it. He pleaded not guilty, which is vastly different. If you just walk in and say "guilty" then you have no options on the table. If you make the government have to prove their case, they might let him have life in prison instead of the death penalty. It makes me laugh that people are outraged that he didn't walk in and plead guilty.

I seriously loathe all of you conspiracy theory whack jobs, sympathizers, and delusional maggots who think this kid is innocent. You have not an ounce of common sense running through your bodies. You all say the dumbest sh*t, and when confronted with a bit of truth and FACTS, you just say more dumb sh*t in hopes to sway other people into believing your twisted version of things.. This kid shoulda caught 2 bullets in the head and 2 in the chest and had the coroner pick him up, not an ambulance.. F*ck him and f*ck all of you who think hes innocent...

They should have blown this guy away when they had the change, now it's going to be a 24/7 TV circus trial for months. It would not surprise me if this guy somehow gets set free...everything in this country is upside down. We all know since our borders have been wide open for many many years more terrorists have flooded this country, and more attacks will happen. Our government is not only corrupt but seems to be on the wrong side of its citizens on every issue. Homeland Security is a joke, NSA spy's on its own people, etc...

Minutes before the explosion there are navy seals, carrying bags, all around the bombing area. They even walking a drugged out patsy. During press conference, they announce they have someone, these photos leak, by hackers, and the story changes all of sudden and they accuse the brothers.
I hate who ever hurt these innocent marathon people, but look at the facts the media isnt reporting.
