Fiery Watch Judge Jeanine's Fiery Message for 'Jihadi Mom'
For her second opening statement on "Justice," Judge Jeanine Pirro addressed the mother of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and weighed in on if the convicted Boston bomber should get the death penalty.
"Your youngest terrorist son, Dzhokhar, stands convicted of four murders, injuring approximately 260 people, blinding, dismembering and blowing off the limbs of many," Judge Jeanine said.
"Should Dzhokhar live or die?" Judge Jeanine asked. "Now I remember you said, 'If they kill him, I don't care.'"
"If you do want him to die, then I want him to live. I want him to live the rest of his life in solitary confinement. I want him to know that the world is passing him by, to know that he can never be a part of the human race again."
Watch Judge Jeanine's opening statement above and read the full transcript below.
Jihadi Mom, it's been a while since we talked.
“The Tsarnaev family - a father, mother, two sons - were granted political asylum in 2002. We opened our arms to them, showered them with food, money, housing, education and all the freedoms of American citizens. And look at how they repaid.” – Judge Jeanine on April 27, 2013
A lot has happened since then, none of it good. But then again, nothing involving your thieving terrorist hate-filled, drug-fueled spawn is ever good.
Tonight, your youngest terrorist son, Dzhokhar, stands convicted of four murders, injuring approximately 260 people, blinding, dismembering and blowing off the limbs of many.
The next step: Will the jury spare him and give him life in prison or impose the ultimate penalty - death?
I remember when this happened, you said that your sons were framed because they were Muslim.
And Dzhokhar’s defense claims that he was simply a follower of his older brother - your other jihadi son, Tamerlan.
Not so. Dzhokhar stands alone in his capacity to commit evil. He is said to have regularly viewed videos of beheadings. Dzhokhar intentionally put a bomb behind an 8 year old, who died. And let's not forget he drove over his brother Tamerlan with a car while making a getaway and didn't stop. Yes, Jihadi Mom, he stands alone in his capacity to commit evil.
Now you've been reported as saying that he's the best of the best. And that we Americans are the terrorists. If we're the terrorists, why did your family come here in the first place, claiming the need for political asylum from other terrorists? Is the world a scary place for you?
And if we're the terrorists, why would we give you education, medication, housing, food stamps, social services, scholarships to your kids, each of them arrested at least once.
And if we're terrorists, why would we let you drive your Mercedes and let your family go back and forth to the country from which you claim political asylum.
And by the way, Jihadi Mom, you and your husband left the country just before the bombing and never returned. Did you know what was coming?
Now you all seem to share the same family values: Greed, thievery and hatred of America.
If you're such a great mother and your family is so good, why not bring your criminal daughters home with you and rid us of this stain on America.
Back to the original question: Should Dzhokhar live or die? Now I remember you said, "If they kill him, I don't care."
If you do want him to die, then I want him to live. I want him to live the rest of his life in solitary confinement. I want him to know that the world is passing him by, to know that he can never be a part of the human race again.
I believe in an eye for an eye. I believe he should die because of what he did to so many. If you commit the ultimate crime, you forfeit your right to walk freely among the rest of us, to breathe our air, eat our food and share our space on Earth.
And we should not be required to endure your existence for a moment longer than necessary. And that truth is irrefutable. But because you want him to die and be a martyr, I want him to live.
