Barr says DOJ to Appeal Ruling, Seek Death Penalty for Boston Bomber

In an interview with the Associated Press, AG Barr vowed to appeal the ruling tossing Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s death sentence.

“We will do whatever’s necessary,” Barr said. “We will take it up to the Supreme Court and we will continue to pursue the death penalty.”

Boston bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet, who lost a leg, sounded off on Instagram earlier this month after Tsarnaev’s death sentence was overturned.

Haslet tweeted a photo of Tsarnaev giving the middle finger to a security cam and wrote:

Right back atcha motherf*cker.

I’m so livid at today’s ruling by the federal court. First and foremost, I cannot emphasize enough, without a shadow of a doubt, that the criminal justice system needs a complete overhaul to stop racial profiling, and the death penalty is used in far too many cases of injustice. AND. The death penalty should be used in this particular case.

This terrorist admitted in court he was guilty of crimes committed against our country. He confessed, with his brother, to a man who testified in court that their plans were to drive to New York and bomb the city too. This terrorist gave the finger when asked if he felt guilty. AND.

The warden of the jail where he would be housed for life testified that, indeed, other terrorists have committed crimes on the World Trade Center through messages on pipes of the jail. I know, this sounds crazy. But that is why I stood by the death penalty in this particular case. He is a threat to all of us and he needs to die.

I cannot imagine the comments I’m about to get for speaking my mind, but these have been my thoughts since I testified. I’m not a woman with a grudge, I’m a human with a brain.

Also props to me for putting his ugly face on my Instagram that’s freaking growth if I’ve ever seen it!!! I’m ready to testify again. LFG 💪🏼🇺🇸
