POLL: Boston Suspect Punishment

Print More

In the wake of the bombings at the Boston Marathon, I sense fear and frustration from all of my peers, no matter their hometown. Attacks like these are so unsettling it is difficult to put our emotions surrounding them into words.

Now that one suspect is dead and the other is in custody, I was curious as to what students here at Cornell thought the adequate punishment for the man who has been arrested should be.

Do you think that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should get the death penalty?
