The jury in the case of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev handed down a death sentence Friday afternoon in a Boston courtroom. Tsarnaev was convicted last month on all 30 counts for his role in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, which killed three people and injured hundreds.
Monday marks the first time the Boston Marathon will be run since the tragic events of the 2013 bombings, and more than 40 North Dakotans have made the trek to the east coast to participate in the annual event.
On April 15, 2013, two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 260. On Tuesday, the city of Boston commemorated the event with a brief ceremony on Boylston Street.
Yesterday (July 17), Rolling Stone revealed that the one still-living alleged Boston Marathon bomber would grace the iconic magazine's cover. Immediately after the announcement was made public, countless individuals unleashed their outrage via social media, condemning Rolling Stone for glamorizing a brutal terrorist and perpetuating the idea that sensational acts of violence will make you famous.
