There appears to be more evidence against Dzhokar Tsarnaev, one of the two men accused of setting off homemade pressure-cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon earlier this year.
RTTNews reports that he allegedly wrote a message about the U.S. on the walls of the boat he was hiding in before authorities got to him. Tsarnaev allegedly wrote that “the US government is killing our innocent civilian. I can’t stand to see such evil go unpunished.” The 20-year-old’s defense attorneys say that the message on the boat were an explanation, not a message to try to inspire others to follow his footsteps.
Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to charges of killing three people and injuring over 260 others on the April 19 attack. He is also facing murder charges for killing MIT police officer three days later.
