Tsarnaev: Closing arguments today in the guilt phase
#Tsarnaev is ready to stand by your verdict to be held respsonsible for his actions.
#Tsarnaev‘s boat note: “what he doesn’t written in here what a violent jihadi might write: Death to America.”
Judy Clarke knows that the contrast between her telling the truth and the government’s overreach in an attempt to convince them to kill Dzhokhar will expose them for what they are: corrupted by blood lust.
I burn hot with anger when anyone suggests she would play games with a client’s life or sell out an innocent client by leaning on them to plead guilty to a crime they did not commit.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is certainly less culpable than his brother and probably would not have gotten involved but for his brother and perhaps to a somewhat lesser extent, his mother.
Unfortunately, however, he did get involved. He knew what he was doing and he was all for it. He explained why he got involved by writing it down on the wall of the boat. He expected to die and join his brother in paradise as a martyr for the cause.
He was wrong. The God of Abraham, whom he worships as Allah, is not a god of vengeance. He is a god of love. Our higher selves know that. We who represent the hated and the reviled know that. Judy knows that and that is why she has been completely up front and truthful with the jury.
She will expose her heart and soul to the jury and speak to to their heart and souls.
We should all pray that she succeeds.
