Boston Globe “The 26-year-old Chinese entrepreneur had just pulled his new Mercedes to the curb on Brighton Avenue to answer a text when an old sedan swerved behind him, slamming to a stop. A man in dark clothes got out and approached the passenger window. It was nearly 11 p.m. last Thursday.”

WBUR “A judge magistrate read him his rights. According to a court transcript, Tsarnaev was alert enough to respond by nodding his head, at one point even mouthing the word, “no” when asked if he could afford his own attorney. Then he was charged with using a weapon of mass destruction that killed three people and destroyed public property.”

    That is great that the owner of Sir Speedy will pay his employees for the time they were closed.  If I have any copy needs, I will take them there.

    These attacks were gruesome, but weapons of mass destruction? Isn’t that a category that’s been reserved for atomic or chemical weapons? Drone delivered bombs have killed more people than the Boston bombing. Are they considered WMD’s now? I can’t see why it is appropriate that terms like this can be redefined on a case by case basis. Can we invade a country now just because they import too many pressure cookers?

      Dave, yep that’s what a Professor who commented on this on WBUR said – the attacks were murder, not WMD.
