Bishop Hirschfeld on the Tsarnaev Death Sentence

Bishop Hirschfeld has posted an essay on the Boston Marathon Bomber verdict to his blog,

"It is virtually impossible to know what caused the jurors to weep when they pronounced the death sentence on the Boston Marathon bomber last Friday.  Until they speak publicly, we can only imagine the emotional and spiritual ordeal they themselves have undergone during the many weeks trial and its sentencing phase.  However, their tears indicate that there is nothing emotionless, clean, or uncomplicated in the sentence they felt compelled to hand down."
