A federal appeals court has vacated the death sentence of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Tsarnaev was convicted and sentenced to death in 2015 for carrying out the April 15, 2013, attack at the marathon finish line with his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died in a shootout with police after a manhunt.

The attack at the marathon killed three people and injured more than 260 others. Tsarnaev's lawyers had been trying to overturn his death sentence. They said it was impossible to find a fair jury in Boston because the explosions traumatized the region.

Fair Trial?  Did the 260+ people he maimed and killed get a trial?

I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

By the standards the defense attorney's put forth and the appeals court agreed with...this little MF'er would be hard pressed to find a fair jury anywhere in the U.S.

An appellate court has tossed the death sentence and overturned three of the convictions of 2013 Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The ruling will not result in Tsarnaev, 27, being freed, and the death penalty can now be revisited in a penalty-phase trial do-over.

If federal prosecutors do not pursue a second death penalty trial, Tsarnaev will remain imprisoned on multiple life sentences that are not affected by Friday’s ruling.

The death penalty was invalid because the trial judge did not adequately screen jurors for pre-trial bias, the ruling read.

This is nuts. I highly recommend the book, Mayhem: Unanswered Questions about the Tsarnaev Brothers, the US Government and the Boston Marathon Bombing, by Michele R. McPhee. You'll be sickened.

Our courts would have set Bin Laden free.  Good thing our Navy took that option off the table.

The Fox piece also says this:

Quote
Many of the charges Tsarnaev was convicted on were upheld by the appeals court, but on those death-eligible counts, the court ordered a new penalty-phase trial. So Tsarnaev could again be sentenced to death, but the government must first decide whether it wants to pursue capital punishment.

So there is a ray of hope here.  Let's hope the Feds decide to do the right thing.

Appeal this "upwards", if possible.
If not possible, do over the sentencing portion of the trial.
