Even though it's Boston the jury just might return a DP verdict.Unlike 9/11,which outraged the *entire* nation,the Marathon bombing,IMO,was even less popular here than in the country as a whole.I certainly could be wrong but that's what my gut tells me.

Don’t hold your breathe for it to happen. Slick fast tracked McVeigh because elections were coming up. 0 is a lame duck. and if he does not stop it some fed judge he appointed will.

HER SHOE LACES were the weapon used to kill her.

19 years going on 20 on TN death row, DNA proof. He raped, strangled to death with her own shoe laces Nicki Read and then threw her body in the river.

Even helped hunt for what was thought to be a missing child. The INJUSTICE system does not give a flip how much money or grief it causes the victim’s family to have this crap delayed and delayed, and then finally some anti-death penalty justice will void the sentence and give life with parole, which means more grief to fight the suckers. And criminals have MORE rights that the victim or victim’s family!
