The officer was identified as Patrolman 1st Class Michael Thomas Slager.

As he planted a backpack containing a bomb near a group of children, Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev made a coldblooded decision aimed at punishing America for its wars in Muslim countries, federal prosecutor Aloke Chakravarty told the jury during closing arguments Monday at Tsarnaev’s death penalty trial. “This was a cold, calculated terrorist act. This was intentional. It was bloodthirsty.” Defense attorney Judy Clarke countered by arguing, as she did at the trial’s outset, that Tsarnaev took part in the attack but did so under the malevolent influence of his now-dead older brother, Tamerlan. The jury is expected to begin deliberations on Tuesday morning.
