BOSTON BOMBER DZHOKHAR Tsarnaev was last night sentenced to die by lethal injection.

Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured by two pressure-cooker bombs planted by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan.

The sentence has been supported by some family victims’ members but criticised by others.

Some disagree with the death penalty itself while others say the inevitable lengthy appeals process will only prolong their grief.

Today’s poll, Do you agree with the death penalty?


Poll Results:

No (10816)
Yes (8470)
