It has been roughly two years since Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his deceased older brother Tamerlan orchestrated the Boston Marathon Bombings. Three people were killed, and hundreds of others were physically and psychologically injured. Today, however, at long last Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be judged and sentenced for his crimes in a court of law. As it happens, there have been 30 charges leveled against him (more than half of which carry the death penalty) and the jury, we're told, has already reached its decision:
