Boston Marathon Bombing

Tsarnaev Supporters Demonstrate Outside Courthouse

It's a big, weird world

Tension had built by noon at U.S. Federal Court in Boston, where Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is expected to appear for his first public appearance since apprehended in a dry-docked Watertown boat.

A handful of demonstrators connected to the "Free Jahar" social media group have already showed up outside the courthouse, holding signs and proclaiming, "Jahar is innocent." The group, many adorned in black "Free Jahar" T-shirts, cheered when the motorcade brought the 19-year-old terror suspect to the courthouse.
