A middle finger to America: Prosecution open up penalty phase of Boston Bomber’s trial with picture of unrepentant killer flipping off cameras three months after his arrest

A never-before-seen picture of Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was shown in court today – and it’s an image that just might get him killed.

Earlier this month, the 21-year-old was found guilty on all charges related to the April 15, 2013 attacks at the Boston Marathon finish line, and Tuesday marked the beginning of the penalty phase of the trial.

Over the next several weeks, jurors will hear more evidence and testimonies as they decide whether to sentence Tsarnaev to life in prison or the death penalty.

Prosecutors gunning to send Tsarnaev to the execution table punctuated their emotionally-charged opening statements this morning by releasing a new picture of Tsarnaev, taken three months after his arrest.

In the picture, Tsaranev wears an orange jumpsuit and puts on a cocky image, offensively flipping off a video camera and puckering his lips in his cell on the day of his arraignment.
