Here's why the Boston bomber pleaded not guilty even though his lawyer told the court he did it
http://www.businessinsider.com/why-boston-bomber-dzhokhar-tsarnaev-pleaded-not-guilty-2015-3

The lawyer for the Boston Marathon bomber admitted at the start of her client's trial this week that he was guilty — even though he already pleaded not guilty two years ago, when he was charged with planting two bombs near the race's finish line.

This seems like a counterintuitive move made by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's attorney, Judy Clarke, one of the top death-penalty lawyers in the US. But the not guilty plea is part of her larger strategy to get her client a more lenient sentence.

This strategy worked when Clarke defended Jared Lee Loughner, the gunman who in 2011 shot nearly 20 people at a Tucson, Arizona, supermarket, including then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. After initially pleading not guilty, Loughner agreed to a deal that took the death penalty off the table.


The yes-he-did-it defense leaves little room for speculation of a set-up, nevermind  contradicting the plea.

Is the deal really going to hold?

This case is very much like the DC sniper thing.  Patsies and media BS.

So, the defendant has been convinced well enough to keep his mouth shut, that it's the only way he can skirt the gallows and remains sketchy about what the elder brother had actually been drawn into.  Cooperating has been defined for him as going along with official accounts to make it an open and shut case ... expected to go on into June.

Watched some of Caravan to Midnight episode Amalgamy posted re Boston. Some very interesting bits there that expanded on some of the things Dave McGowan has highlighted about the Marathon hoax. Possibly Joker Tsarnaev is just an actor, not even an actual patsy.

Wow, atty Judy Clarke is quite suddenly the go-to lawyer gal for enraged psychos, huh? Does Ms Clarke do any digging to find out why the Tsarnaev brothers' uncle had CIA/intel connections & just why Uncle Ruslan was so quick to do press conferences & condemn the kids?! Why isn't trial televised?

Usually lawyers like this are working a 'side deal'. Think kosher nazi atty Kirk Lyons.

Boston bomber apologizes, sentenced to death
http://news.yahoo.com/boston-bomber-tsarnaev-address-death-sentence-hearing-175250547.html;_ylt=AwrXnCAxCY5V8i4AP23QtDMD;_ylu=X3oDMTByM3V1YTVuBGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMzBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg--

Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev apologized to his victims for the first time at a highly emotional court hearing Wednesday where he was formally sentenced to death for the 2013 attacks.

The US citizen of Chechen descent was sentenced to death on six counts for perpetrating the Marathon bombings, one of the bloodiest assaults on US soil since the September 11, 2001 attacks.

"I would like to now apologize to the victims and to the survivors," said the 21-year-old former university student in his first public remarks since the April 15, 2013 bombings that killed three people.

"I am guilty," he said in a slight Russian accent, standing pale and thin in a dark blazer. "Let there be no doubt about that."

Did this apology come before or after sentencing?

Two years ago, this guy wasn't able to speak because of a gunshot wound to the throat. When did he start talking?
