Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Thursday that she’s against the death penalty for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and would rather see the Boston Marathon bomber “die in prison.”
In an interview on CBS This Morning, the U.S. senator from Massachusetts was asked if she is in favor of the death penalty for the 21-year-old, who was convicted Wednesday in the attacks that killed three and injured more than 260 in April 2013.
“You know my heart goes out to the families here, but I don’t support the death penalty,” she said. “I think that he should spend his life in jail, no possibility of parole. He should die in prison.”
She’s on the extreme fringe yet is treated like a rock star.
“The point is that he stays in prison, he dies in prison, he’s put away. He’s not a danger to anyone else,” she said. “He’s not a part of an ongoing story, he’s not someone who is able to keep sucking up a lot of energy and a lot of attention.”
Yeah, he’ll just suck up our tax dollars for another 60 years.
