The defense in the Boston Bombings case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev came to a speedy conclusion Tuesday. They only used four witnesses, only six hours of testimony. When compared to the prosecution: 92 witnesses, three weeks of testimony. The defense’s only point, that his older brother Tamerlan was calling the shots. If that argument makes any impression with the jury, the defense hopes it will save their clients life. Closing arguments are scheduled for Monday.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence aggressively defended Indiana’s religious freedom law Tuesday but said he wants a bill on his desk by week’s end “making it clear the law does not allow businesses the right to deny services to anyone.” Whether he effectively quelled the swirl of criticism remains to be seen. Meanwhile, the state of Arkansas marked the occasion by passing their own “religious freedom” law, despite similar types of warnings and protestations from civil and business communities.
