New Tsarnaev Injury Photos Released

Boston Magazine, which first published the leaked arrest photos of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has published another 48 images from the arrest scene. Like the earlier photos, these were taken by Sergeant Sean Murphy.

In this photo, an injured Dzhokhar lifts his sweatshirt. Presumably, this was in response to a request by law enforcement to show he did not have a bomb strapped to his chest. In this photo, you can see the number of agents with guns trained on him as he descended from the boat. This photo shows injuries to his face and hand while still on the boat.

Here's a video in which you can hear the barrage of shots fired at Tsarnaev, who was unarmed.

    Will Tsarnaev injuries play a role? (none / 0) (#1)

    Granted, Tsarnaev brought on these injuries himself by refusing to surrender - for whatever reason.  But, will the fact that he has sustained serious, life-altering and probably permanent injuries play any role in the jury's assessment of blame or in sentencing?

    Or, if they are negotiating a plea deal, will defense counsel emphasize the fact that he has already suffered quite a bit?

    Not if they're anything like (none / 0) (#3)

    ...they had no way to know if he was armed or not.
