Ex-Boston Police Commissioner: Put Tsarnaev to Death

By    |   Thursday, 09 Apr 2015 05:59 PM

Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should be given the death penalty, says Ed Davis, who was Boston's police commissioner during the April 15, 2013, bombing that killed three people.

Though Massachusetts is a liberal state where most oppose the death penalty, Davis said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto" that Tsarnaev's terrorist actions are comparable to the Oklahoma City bombing that resulted in a death sentence for bomber Timothy McVeigh.

The fact that Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, targeted an innocent woman and child and later killed a police officer in the name of "jihadi extremist philosophy" justifies the death penalty, Davis said. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in the manhunt.

"This man's declared war on the United States, and I think he should be held accountable for it in the most appropriate way which I believe is the death penalty," Davis said.
