Why should he have shown any remorse? He had just murdered Infidels in obedience to his bloodthirsty god who commanded him to “kill them wherever you find them” (cf. Qur’an 2:191, 4:89, 9:5).
“Prosecutors: Marathon bomber showed ‘opposite of remorse,'” by Denise Lavoie, Associated Press, January 27, 2016 Updated: January 27, 2016:
BOSTON (AP) — Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev gave a stunning courtroom apology when he was sentenced to death in the deadly 2013 attack, but just after he was captured, he showed “the opposite of remorse,” prosecutors said in court documents released Wednesday.
Tsarnaev, 22, was convicted last year and sentenced to die for his role in an attack that killed three people and injured more than 260. At his sentencing hearing, he said he was sorry for the lives he took and the suffering he caused.
In newly released court documents, prosecutors said Tsarnaev expressed anything but regret when he was questioned by two FBI agents after his capture days after the bombings. They included the description of Tsarnaev in a motion to limit the testimony of Sister Helen Prejean, a Roman Catholic nun and staunch death penalty opponent made famous by the 1995 film, “Dead Man Walking.”
Prosecutors argued that Prejean’s testimony should be excluded, calling it a “thinly disguised way for Tsarnaev to offer statements of remorse” without having to make them under oath, be cross-examined by prosecutors and allow jurors to gauge his sincerity for themselves. They argued that if Prejean was allowed to testify, they should be allowed to confront her with other statements Tsarnaev made to FBI agents after his capture.
Tsarnaev’s actual statements to the FBI agents or to Prejean were not released publicly. They are included in hundreds of other court filings that have not yet been released because prosecutors or Tsarnaev’s lawyers have asked that they remain sealed. More than 600 court filings and exhibits are being made public this week, but many more will remain sealed until the judge rules on their release.
Prejean was allowed to testify. She said Tsarnaev expressed genuine sorrow about the victims of the bombing, quoting him as saying, “No one deserves to suffer like they did.”
During his sentencing hearing, Tsarnaev apologized to the victims and their loved ones. “I pray for your relief, for your healing,” he said.
But during the trial, prosecutors showed the jury a photo of a defiant Tsarnaev giving the middle finger to a security camera in his jail cell three months after his arrest….
