7.3 billion people on the planet, who needs this pos around
It also costs a fortune to imprison a young man for life. Not until someone figures a way to make him pay his own way. Doing menial prison labor does not cover the costs of imprisonment.
I'm also generally against the death penalty. Because it has historically been applied arbitrarily and racially in the US, and as we are increasingly learning, wrongly against innocent people. That is one mistake you cannot undo and take back once executed.
But in the Boston and Charleston cases the guilt is certain. I can believe the younger Tsarnaev was radicalized by his older brother, but that is not a sufficient exculpating factor.
And an example must be made for future terrorists. Furthermore, keeping him in prison will always present an objective for terrorists, to kidnap others and try to swap them for his release. Better he be dead and gone, the sooner the better.

Yes - $60,000 a year. That's a teacher's salary, or a firefighter's. Our epidemic of incarceration costs us taxpayers $63.4 billion a year. "http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-cost-of-a-nation-of-incarceration/
Nationwide, the numbers are staggering: Nearly 2.4 million people behind bars, even though over the last 20 years the crime rate has actually dropped by more than 40 percent.
"The United States has about 5 percent of the world's population, but we have 25 percent of the world's prisoners - we incarcerate a greater percentage of our population than any country on Earth,"
Then of course there is the conflict of interest between private prisons and profit, incarcerating even more people. Banking on Bondage: Private Prisons and Mass Incarcerationhttps://www.aclu.org/banking-bondage-private-prisons-and-mass-incarceration
