Even if the bombing suspect gets the death penalty and die for his crimes, we shouldn't rejoice about it. If he dies for his crimes, then that is just the penalty. Yet what I would really want to see, is for Dzhokhar to sincerely apologize and confess to his crimes. Not that we demand it out of him, but that he confesses to his actions. I think that would give some amount of comfort to the victims and their families, compared to him dying in his faults.
I mean there is another battle that is being fought here. People all over the world are looking at what we do concerning this guy, that includes possibly other young men who are exposed to these radical ideas of terrorism. If they see us treating Dzhokhar as a human, in spite of his actions, it may cause them to think about their own beliefs. Causing a revolution within the radical ranks overseas. So again, if he dies because of his crimes, that is just the penalty of his actions. I'm not going to rejoice over that, I and I'm sure everyone else would much rather the thing never happened! (Except probably politicians who look for reasons to show their hate)
