Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is getting off easy.

Some day in five, 10, 20 years -- however long it takes to exhaust his appeals -- it will all be over. Someone will flip a switch, empty a needle, or if we're lucky, nod to the firing squad, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's life will humanely fade to black.

He doesn't deserve such mercy.



Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced to death by a federal jury, which announced its decision Friday afternoon at Moakley Courthouse in Boston.

The jury deliberated for about 14 1/2 hours before reaching its decision. A death sentence requires a unanimous vote. The jury agreed to the death penalty on six counts.
