BALTIMORE (AP) — The lawyer for the family of Freddie Gray, a black man who died of spinal injuries during an arrest in Baltimore, said he believes the police had no reason to stop the man in the first place.
By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's attack in 2013 was "inexcusable" and "senseless," a U.S. prosecutor said on Tuesday as the government began making its case that he should be sentenced to death for the bombing and its aftermath. All of those words have been used to describe the murders committed by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev," said Nadine Pellegrini, an Assistant U.S. Attorney, in the prosecution's opening statement of the sentencing phase on Tuesday. "The deaths committed by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were deliberate, intentional and cruel." Citing al Qaeda materials found on his laptop and a note in which he suggested the April 15, 2013 bombing was an act of retribution for U.S. military campaigns in Muslim-dominated countries, federal prosecutors have sought to paint Tsarnaev as a violent extremist.
