The trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the remaining Muslim terrorist who set off pressure cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon is just about over.
He’s been convicted of murder and the only question now is whether he’s executed or spends the rest of his life in solitary confinement in a federal super-max prison.
The defense is planning on calling family members as witnesses in the penalty phase of the trial. As a result our tax dollars brought the family to Boston and we are paying all of their expenses while they’re here to testify.
The cost is expected to be in excess of $100,000. Don’t expect to thank you from the family members of this Muslim butcher.
The cost of relatively first-class accommodations for the family is barely the tip of the iceberg. Just one the expert witnesses called by the defense, Mark Spencer of Arsenal Consulting, is collecting $375 per hour and is expected to bill taxpayers at least $150,000.
The family of the murderous Muslim butcher who set off the bombs that killed and maimed Bostonians who were enjoying the finish of the Boston Marathon also have three police agencies providing protection for them.
Our only consolation, and it’s a small one, is that the Hampton Inn where the feds have put up the butcher’s family has people checking out in droves.
