Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was seen giving the middle finger on camera, and the video footage is being used during his death penalty trial.
Tsarnaev was convicted on a litany of charges related to the bombing, which left three people dead and scores more injured in April 2013.
The video of him giving the finger is from July 10, 2013.
“This is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev,” Assistant United States attorney Nadine Pellegrini told the courtroom.
The video showed the terrorist adjusting his hair, and he then made “V” with his fingers. After that, he flipped the camera off, reported the Boston Globe.
Here’s the video below:
“This is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev — unconcerned, unrepentant and unchanged,” federal prosecutor Nadine Pellegrini told the jury that will decide whether the 21-year-old former college student should be executed. She was referring to the video.
The penalty phase in the Boston Marathon bomber’s trial opened in dramatic fashion Tuesday, with prosecutors portraying Tsarnaev as a coldblooded killer and “America’s worst nightmare.”
The government then began trying to drive home the horror of the attack by calling to the stand witnesses who lost legs or loved ones in the April 15, 2013, bombing.
“I remember hearing just bloodcurdling screams. I just remember looking around, just seeing blood everywhere, sort of like debris falling from the sky,” said Celeste Corcoran, who made her way to the stand on two artificial limbs.
Several jurors shed tears as the father of Krystle Campbell, a 29-year-old restaurant manager killed in the bombing, described how he called his daughter “princess.”
