BOSTON — Boston Marathon suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev downloaded bomb-making instructions from an al-Qaida magazine, gathered online material on Islamic jihad and martyrdom and later scrawled anti-American messages inside the boat where he lay wounded, a federal indictment charged Thursday.

If he can avoid the death penalty, he will probably walk in 413 years.

Death penalty! Why give him three meals a day a warm bed and protection (you know due to the circumstances hell get protection)?

No death penalty. Take that off the table.

Did that Saudi student who first got picked up which caused a high level White House meeting with the Saudi foreign minister, get indicted also? That's right the Obama Administration shuffled him out of the country after that meeting. Weird...

Why take the death penalty off the table? I would think this would be considered a case where it would be best used? Show terrorists we mean business!

Hi Denise, I think you intended the caption on the photo to say Dzhokar and his brother Tamerlan. Instead it shows Dzhokar twice. Just passing along :)

I would imagine life in prison would be WORSE than the death penalty for him, given he is the Boston Bomber. Only imagine how the US immates would welcome him for the next 60 years of his life. I'd say 3-4 years MAX before someone finishes him off inside of the jail walls. It would be 1 person vs. 300 inmates for as long as he lived.

with all the "security" that comes with the NSA monitoring everything we do on the internet and our phones it is amazing that he could read al-Qaida propaganda online AND order the same bomb making parts online spelled out in the propaganda... Oh, and I forgot, Russia tipped the U.S. off about these guys too... Great job NSA! Great job Whitehouse! I do not feel any safer. He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither. - Benjamin Franklin

newslover: " Why take the death penalty off the table? I would think this would be considered a case where it would be best used? Show terrorists we mean business!"_____________________________________________ 1) It costs more due to the appeals process 2) It lets him off easy, he should have to live out his life with all the endings of movies cut off, books with the final pages ripped out, conversations stopped short 3) terrorist often commit acts of suicide and then believe they are elevated due to being a martyr, but with a life term, he is just another prisoner, just another number, and I think that would be the worst outcome in his own mind.
