boston marathon bomber friends indicted

Seems more like revenge than justice. The pair were “indicted Thursday on obstruction conspiracy charges, accused of trying to dispose of evidence from Tsarnaev’s dorm room.”

They’re kids, and they probably didn’t understand the gravity of the situation or the consequences of their actions. They did nothing to promote the violent and senseless act and were, to my knowledge, completely oblivious to it. I do not believe the pair represent any threat to society.

This isn’t to say they shouldn’t be punished, just to say that the punishment should be framed in the aforementioned context.
