Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty Wednesday as 30 survivors and victims' relatives stared him down in a Boston courtroom.
Tsarnaev, 19, was arraigned on a 30-count indictment that charges him with using weapons of mass destruction and killing four people. He wore an orange jail jumpsuit over a black T-shirt and a bandage or cast on his left hand and smiled crookedly at times.
"Not guilty," he said over and over as each charge was read.
The eight-minute hearing marked Tsarnaev's first public appearance since he was hauled bleeding from a boat four days after the twin blasts near the finish line of the April 15 race. He returns to court Sept. 23.

Glad there is a trial as well, though it will not be a fair one. Im still not sure what I believe about the bombings after hours of research I just had to move on to something different honestly. I certainly hope some truth will come out of this.

I want to hear his defense.
Wouldn't be surprised if they 'sedated' him like they did with James Holmes.

Why would he plead not guilty if he supposeddly confessed two different times?!?

it can only ever be a fake trial as the bombings 'he' is accused of were staged
with no real deaths or injuries.
i suspect these 'terrorists' don't really exist (as opposed to being patsies or actors)
and look forward examing high definition motion images of the 'defendant' in action
at his trial. i won't hold my breath.edit on 10-7-2013 by TopsyTurvyOne because: (no reason given)

...What's the rest of you's opinion?
I've been waiting to see the evidence. I'm also not convinced about a lot of things. I definitely want to see the video of someone setting down a bag at one of the sites.
