Guilty or not, this human being does not deserve death. Please pray for his life.

BOSTON — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Juliette Kayyem said Thursday that she would support having a commission review the intelligence leading up to the Boston Marathon bombings and the law enforcement response.
“You don’t just do it for blame, although that might be appropriate if someone dropped the ball. You do it because of the feedback,” Kayyem said.
Kayyem is a former homeland security adviser to Gov. Deval Patrick and assistant secretary for intergovernmental affairs at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama. She is running against four other Democrats to earn the party’s 2014 gubernatorial nomination.
Kayyem was asked about the response to the bombings after she delivered the keynote address at a Massachusetts Newspaper Publishers Association luncheon in Boston. Kayyem also addressed issues ranging from climate change to economic development.
Kayyem said it is important to analyze the investigation of and response to the bombings to identify any problems and determine what could have been done better.
One unique decision the Massachusetts government made was to lock down Watertown and surrounding towns for a day during a manhunt for one of the suspects. Kayyem said she believes the lockdown “was appropriate given what we knew at the time.”
Asked after her speech what questions she believes remain open, Kayyem pointed to an interview the Federal Bureau of Investigation did with bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011. Kayyem said she wants to know why the FBI decided Tsarnaev, who was killed in a shootout with police days after the Boston bombings, was not worthy of further investigation. Kayyem said she wants information about intelligence sharing with the Russians, who had information about Tsarnaev. She wants to find out what happened in a Florida incident in which a Boston FBI agent fatally shot Tsarnaev’s friend during an interview.
While Kayyem said Massachusetts “did a great job in the immediate response,” she said she wants to know “how could we have done better and how can we take what we learned, mistakes made, to educate other cities and other urban environments that are surely going to face something like this one day.”
The annual Adweek Hot List named the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Rolling Stone cover the best of 2013. The cover stirred controversy before it even hit shelves.
For some reason this bothers me? I guess it is because people only look at him as a monster or just plain sexy, but in reality I wish everyone would just look at him as a human being who might lose his life, let alone already lost his life to the Govt. I pray for you Dzhokhar. I wish you no harm.
I absolutely agree.
**Ok this is good but a little weird. The prison has loosened restrictions but the judge has still yet to rule on SAMs. **
The Federal Bureau of Prisons has eased limits on legal visits to alleged Boston…
My thought is that Holder stepped in to prevent a substantive challenge to a potential conviction, on grounds that Dzhohkar’s constitutional rights were violated as pertains to access to legal counsel and a fair trial.
Agree. Or to influence O Toole to rule against vacating the SAMs altogether.
