Jerks in Office; Law `n Order Edition

The Middlesex County Prosecutor wants to try the surviving Boston Bombing Asshole for murdering a cop.

Said Asshole is currently sitting inside of a Federal supermax while the appeals process runs on his convictions. When those run out, however long it takes, the Feds will take him to Terre Haute and execute him. Unless the Supremes invalidate the death penalty, in which case, Asshole will be in said supermax until he dies.

So why spend a few million bucks on a state trial, given that the Commonwealth doesn't have a death penalty? Just so DA Ryan can get some fucking headlines? So all of the survivors can have the whole thing thrown in their faces, yet again?

It's a waste of taxpayers' money. And that's all it is, folks.

The key words are "taxpayer money". It's not his money, and after all, what's a few million to advance his political career. Maybe he's shooting for higher office.

If she doesn't overplay her hand, that trial should be good for a run at the Governors Office the next time the two parties swap the office.
