Is Execution the Most Effective Punishment for the Boston Bomber?

Tsarnaev's crimes are inexcusable, and I am the first to say he will probably never be fit to walk the streets as a free man. But if there's one thing you shouldn't fight a fire with, it's more fire.

Boston Bomber on the Cover of Rolling Stone: By a Boston Marathon Runner

Three months ago I was crossing the line of the Boston Marathon. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. I had run a PB. I had completed the ultimate marathon for any serious distance runner... Then two bombs went off 100 yards from our table and I found myself running for my life through the streets of Boston. Rolling Stone was right to present the story as it did. Kids are not idiots. The readers of Rolling Stone are not going to read this article and think bombing a marathon is cool. Instead they may take a cold hard look at who they are and what they want to do, because they do not want to end up like Jahar Tsarnaev

An anonymous source has finally stepped forward and offered an unmarked grave in Virginia so that Tamerlan Tsarnaev's body could be put to rest. But the entire episode is a powerful reminder of the importance of ritual and gestures, even in an era where we'd like to think that cold facts, data, and rationality always carry the day.

The Chechen Black Widows - Female Terrorists in al Qaeda and the Tsarnaev Brothers

What was perhaps most chilling about the Chechen terrorists was that they used women from the start. The first Chechen suicide bombers were two young women who drove an explosive laden truck into their target. Half of the hostage takers in Moscow were women dressed in long black Salafi style robes with bomb belts strapped to their waists--they were seen by journalist as women in mourning clothes

Elia speaks of an 'alleviation of fear' at the news of Dzhokhar's dramatic arrest 24 hours later. 'I just hope the main response is that authorities take more security measures to ensure tragedies like this do not happen again. Being a very liberal Democrat, I do worry that society could scapegoat minorities, but I really hope this will not be the case.'

Is There Much More to the Tamerlan Tsaraev Story than Meets the Eye?

Anne Speckhard | Posted 27.06.2013 | UK
Anne Speckhard

Certainly the April bombings point to a young man who was filled with a self righteous hatred that allowed him to strike out at innocent men, women and children--maiming and killing them with no sense of conscience. Did this hate have some of its origins in either his or his brother's drug use and a wish to destroy those who he later blamed for corrupting him?
