On Saturday, the Fox News Channel’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” host Judge Jeanine Pirro said that she doesn’t want convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev getting the death penalty, only because giving him life in prison would spite his mother.
Pirro spent of her monologue criticizing “jihadi mom,” Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan’s mother, before stating “well, if you do want him to die, then I want him to live. I want him to live the rest of his life in solitary confinement. I want him to know the world is passing him by, to know that he can never be a part of the human race again. Now, I believe in an eye for an eye. I believe he should die because of what he did to so many…but because you [Zubeidat Tsarnaeva] want him to die and be a martyr, I want him to live.”
