Boston Marathon Bomber Sues For $250k, Claims Prison Guards Took His Hat and Bandana

Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has reportedly sued the federal government for $250,000 over his treatment at a Colorado prison where he is currently serving a life sentence.

The lawsuit specifically cites in part the allegation that prison guards took his hat and bandana away while restricting his use of showers, something Tsarnaev asserts is contributing to his anxiety.

The Boston Herald reports that Tsarnaev “specifically cites the confiscation of his white baseball cap and bandana that he purchased at the prison commissary and not being able to take more showers.”

The report notes that Tsarnaev claims “the harsh treatment has made his life inside the prison’s H-Unit so anxious it is adding to his ‘mental and physical decline.'”

Poor guy.

 

Boston Marathon Bomber – Who Killed Four People – Sues the Federal Government

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan set off homemade pressure-cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon in 2013, killing three people and injuring over 260.

They later shot Sean A. Collier of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Police Department six times, killing him.

Tamerlan was killed during a shooting with police three days later after the bombing, while Dzhokhar was captured following a massive manhunt the following day.

Tsarnaev was referred to by law enforcement as “White Hat” as security video caught him sporting a backward cap during the terror attack.

The lawsuit claims guards took his cap “because, by wearing it, I was ‘disrespecting’ the FBI and the victims” of the bombing.

 

Kamala Harris Thinks We Should Consider Allowing the Boston Marathon Bomber to Vote

Tsarnaev was convicted for his crimes and initially sentenced to death.

The death sentence was overturned last July after a three-judge panel ruled that the trial judge “fell short” while screening the jury for potential biases.

That decision has been appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

Kamala Harris, who will officially be sworn in as Vice President of the United States in just days, said during the primaries that she thinks the Boston Marathon bomber’s right to vote should be considered.

Harris initially called voting a right people “should not be stripped of needlessly” adding that released felons having that right taken from them is racist.

CNN host Don Lemon pushed her further asking about the right to vote for people currently in prison or “on death row.”

“I think we should have that conversation,” Harris replied.
