Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev plead not guilty to 30 charges at his first court appearance, where he shockingly was seen smiling and blowing kisses at his family during his trial. Are you horrified by his behavior?
Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev plead not guilty when he was arraigned on July 10 for the April 15 attacks on the Boston Marathon, and he shocked witnesses who were present in the court. During his short trial, Dzhokhar was “smirking,” blowing kisses to his family, and appeared to be smiling. How awful.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Blew Kisses During Trial
Dzhokhar, 19, arrived at court in a white van, making his first public appearance since he was arrested on April 19 by police. He entered court in an orange jumpsuit with his hands cuffed behind back, and he sported shaggy hair and dark eyes, reports FOX news. He wore a cast on his left arm, as he is still injured from his arrest.
Dzhokhar faced victims of the attack, and he unsurprisingly avoided contact with them, but he was seen smiling, smirking and blowing kisses at his sisters.
This is disgraceful behavior for someone who is on trial for three murders and countless injuries.
FOX 25 News Boston were present in court for the brief trial, and they tweeted throughout:
