This sounds like a logical and well thought out position.

Professor: If Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Is Executed For Murdering This Little Boy, THE TERRORISTS WIN

A professor at Northeastern University has declared that a federal court should not sentence guilty Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev to death because such a sentence would upset terrorists too much.

“If this guy gets the death penalty we’re gonna be hearing more than we ever wanted to hear about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev,” the emeritus professor, Edith Flynn, told CBS Boston.

“We have to remember that the purpose of terrorism is to draw attention and get the world focused on their issues, and to any degree that we have a sentence of death with all the appeals following, we are playing into the hands of the terrorists.”

Flynn also told CBS Boston that future terrorists could rally around Tsarnaev because of his dark good looks.

“I think Tsarnaev, given his youth and that Rolling Stone photograph — he’s quite a handsome lad — is going to draw quite a bit of sympathy, particularly from people who might be on the edge,” she predicted.

The longtime criminology professor who cites counterterrorism among her specialties compared Tsarnaev, 21, to Ted Kaczynski, the notorious Unabomber who for years lived in a hut in the Montana wilderness except when he was mailing or planting homemade bombs in a campaign against modern technology.

Kaczynski is currently serving eight life terms without the possibility of parole in a supermax prison in Colorado.

“Who thinks of Ted Kaczynski? I bet you half the population can’t remember his name,” Flynn wagered, according to CBS Boston.
