Well, That’s a Relief: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Medical Care Is Covered at Federal Facility

Families of his victims will probably have to struggle to pay their bills for medical care and rehab, but we’ll pick up the tab for this terrorist punk.

After reportedly suffering injuries to his hands, neck and legs after a dramatic showdown with police last week, Dzhohkar Tsarnaev received nearly a week of medical treatment at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and has subsequently been moved to the Federal Medical Center Devens, where his medical treatment will continue.

Since he is in federal custody, it’s unlikely Tsarnaev or his family will have to pay for his medical care, as U.S. Federal Marshals are responsible for the health care of any inmate in their custody.

“The transformative moment is when he’s transferred into custody of the federal government,” said Bradley W. Brockmann, executive director of the Center for Prisoner Health and Human Rights at Brown University. “At that point, they would be responsible for the hospital bill payments.”

Maybe his mosque can take up a collection.

    In a humane society, prisoners get health care, especially those who haven’t been convicted of anything yet. This is hardly news; the James-Younger gang survivors in Minnesota were cared for at taxpayer expense.
