This is a sad day. Although for many Bostonians, it is apparently a happy day because they genuinely believe that "the bad guy is off the streets, justice has been served, and America is safe again."
Can you get a feel for what is happening to this hapless kid? Is he grieving? Angry? Missing his mom? Wanting the death penalty? He probably won't get it here in Massachusetts. Did he even tell his attorneys of his and his brother's experiences? Did he get a say in what his attorneys did (saying "It was him" for example).
A. When I tune into him I see this boy in bit of shock. He was prepared for the worst, and some how knew he was going to take the blame, but he had some hope that someone would be strong enough to go against all this. There are key people that know the truth, and I get that during this process someone came forward in some kind of discreet way to share evidence (like a whistle blower), but his attorneys disregarded it. This was fairly recent (they came out close to the trial), and Jahar had a glimmer of hope, but during the trial the "surprise" he was hoping for never came to fruition.
I get when he went into this trial, he already knew how it was suppose to play out. I see this image of his attorney's reading a script- and nothing really deviated from the script. I get that many of the witnesses also read off of a script. He didn't agree with the "script" but wasn't really allowed to go against it.
He feels betrayed by friends and people that knew him and his brother, but yet he understands (they are dealing with powers much stronger than themselves). The biggest thing he is working on right now is forgiveness because he really doesn't feel hope in any other way. He is at a difficult low right now. I get that he doesn't really care if he gets the death penalty or not- he just has a wish to talk to his mom in person. The guilt he carries is for the pain his family has endured through all this.
And that is all I have for this reading. Thank you. Love and light to everyone touched by this horrible event-
