Menino hopes federal authorities “throw the book at him,” which would include the possibility of execution.
“I hope that the U.S. attorney takes him on the federal side and throws the book at him,” Menino said on “This Week.” “These two individuals held this city hostage for five whole days.”
“They should not do that — that’s what these terrorist events want to do, hold the city hostage and stop the economy of the city.”
