Boston Marathon Bomber's Lawyers Want Death Sentence Tossed

Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's convictions or death sentence should be tossed because it was impossible for him to get a fair trial in the same city where the shrapnel-packed, pressure cooker bombs exploded, his lawyers told a federal appeals court on Thursday.

In a 500-page brief filed in the 1st U.S. District Court of Appeals, Tsarnaev's legal team outlined a host of other problems with his 2015 trial, during which the defense admitted from the outset that he and his older brother carried out the attack. His appellate lawyers are also pointing to issues with jurors, certain testimony from surviving victims and the defense's inability to tell jurors about links between Tsarnaev's brother and an unsolved triple killing in 2011.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is completely innocent of the crime and should be released immediately. Video and photographic evidence exonerates him of involvement in the bombing.

The bottom line is that the brothers backpacks (light grey and dark grey) do not match the black backpacks used in the bombing. The FBI described both bomb backpacks as black. The evidence here is contradictory:

The Boston Bombing was a false flag, or at the very least innocent people were framed to protect the real perpetrators.
