A federal grand jury today indicted Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on 30 charges of killing four people and using homemade bombs during the Boston Marathon bombing and manhunt.

Tsarnaev, 19, is accused of carrying out the April 15 attack with his brother Tamerlan, who died in a gun battle during the manhunt four days later. Of the 30 counts, 19 carry the possibility of the death penalty.

The indictment accuses the pair of setting off homemade pressure-cooker bombs at the marathon finish line in a crowd of thousands of people. During the manhunt, the two ethnic Chechens used IEDs and other weapons, including a Ruger P95 handgun, machete, and hunting knife. They drove their Honda Civic to the MIT campus, where they shot and killed Officer Sean Collier, according to the indictment.

For more details on the specific charges, read the U.S. Attorney's Office press release here.

And here we go with another endless trial costing taxpayers millions. I'll donate the bullet to save the country money. And I know a pig farmer who'll let us dump the carcass for free, as long as we don't tell his friends. Blues, Stay Safe.

There is no penalty that will equal what this scum bag did. May use him as a test dummy in a "interview" room.
