BOSTON Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker spoke about the death penalty verdict today. He referred to the marathon bombings as an act of terrorism.
Baker said he hoped it would bring closure to victims and their families, although he knows the horrific attacks have changed the city of Boston forever.
Governor Baker said, “I think every time everybody runs the marathon and participates in the marathon, it will be impossible for this to be too far from the top of people’s minds…”
Previously Governor Baker said he supported the death penalty for Dzokjar Tsarnaev, although today he said it’s not his opinion that matters.
