Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was transferred to a high-security federal prison in Colorado on Thursday, one day after being formally sentenced to death for his role in the blasts.
Tsarnaev had previously been held at a prison facility in Devens, Massachusetts, west of Boston.
At Wednesday’s hearing, after listening to two dozen survivors of the attack and relatives of victims, Tsarnaev addressed the court for the first time.
“I am sorry for the lives I have taken, for the suffering that I have caused you, for the damage I have done, irreparable damage,” he told the court.
The prisoners at the super-maximum security penitentiary in Florence have no cellmates, and recreation is solitary, according to a former federal prison warden who testified during Tsarnaev’s trial.
Inmates at the facility include Oklahoma City bomber accomplice Terry Nichols, underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.
WHO CARES about hearing that this scumbag has gone to prison. That’s where he belongs! Are we going to hear next what his cell looks like, how comfortable his bed is, how big his television is? DUMP HIM IN PRISON, THROW AWAY THE KEY AND LEAVE HIM THERE. Just don’t tell us about every aspect of his miserable life.
