U.S. Attorney: Boston Marathon bombing was not a religious crime

What part of radical Islam do these people not understand?

Speaking to reporters on Friday after a jury sentenced Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death, U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz went out of her way to claim that Tsarnaev brothers' terror attack "was not a religious crime."

"Even in the wake of horror and tragedy, we are not intimidated by acts of terror or radical ideals.

"Make no mistake. The defendant claimed to be acting on behalf of all Muslims. This was not a religious crime, and it certainly does not reflect true Muslim beliefs. It was designed to intimidate and coerce the United States.

"The defendant was an adult who came to believe in an ideology of hate, and he expressed those beliefs by killing, maiming, and mutilating innocent Americans on Patriots Day," Ortiz said.
