This is the day Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced to death inside the Moakley Courthouse for his role in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. At the podium, Boston Police Commissioner Bill Evans, Watertown Police Commissioner Edward Deveau, and Marathon Cowboy Carlos Arredondo with his wife and the “Boston Strong” banner can be seen. Channel 7’s Dan Hausle gives a report while off in the distance death penalty protesters stand at jutting out corner of the building with a peace flag and signs one of which asks, “Does Killing Stop Killing?” The phrases “justice was served” and “finding peace” were repeated many times in many ways by many people. The father with his young son walking out of the frame makes me want to cry.
