3/24/21- Paul Kamenar, Counsel to the National Legal and Policy Center, is interviewed on One America News Network about the Biden Administration’s position on the application of the death penalty to Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The Supreme Court of the United States announced this week that it decided to hear whether Tsarnaev, who was found guilty of the terrorist attack in 2013 that killed three people and injured approximately 280 others, is entitled to a new death penalty phase trial because of pretrial publicity and other concerns as ordered by a lower court of appeals.
The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) called upon Attorney General Merrick Garland to reject those baseless arguments and to support former Attorney General Bill Barr’s position opposing a “new and more onerous penalty trial where [Tsarnaev’s] victims would relive their trauma.”
During his confirmation hearing last month, Garland was praised by his supporters for his prosecution of Timothy McVeigh who bombed the federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995, and who received the death penalty.
