Reaction to Conviction of Tsarnaev in Marathon Bombings

Posted:

BOSTON (AP)- Reaction to the conviction of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260 others:

___

"I am thankful that this phase of the trial has come to an end and am hopeful for a swift sentencing process. I hope today's verdict provides a small amount of closure for the survivors, families, and all impacted by the violent and tragic events surrounding the 2013 Boston Marathon. The incidents of those days have forever left a mark on our city. As we remember those who lost so much, we reflect on how tragedy revealed our deepest values, and the best of who we are as a community." - Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who took office the year after the bombings.

___

"On the occasion of today's guilty verdict in U.S. District Court, the collective thoughts of the entire Massachusetts State Police are with the victims, survivors and families of those maimed by these cowardly acts of terrorism. In today's verdict, we hope to turn another page in the recovery and healing of our community. We are hopeful that in justice, those that have been injured may find some sense of peace." - Massachusetts State Police Col. Timothy Alben.

"As someone who has been deeply involved in the Boston Marathon over the many years both as mayor and a runner, this was a long nightmare for the victims' families and people of the City of Boston. A dark period in Boston's history. Terrorists must never again have the opportunity to inflict this kind of gutless carnage and brutality in America. The trial is over, justice has been served but the victims will always be remembered and in our prayers." - Ray Flynn, former Boston mayor and U.S. ambassador to the Vatican.
