Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Inscribed Messages While Hiding In Boat

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the two men accused of setting off a pair of bombs at the Boston Marathon in April, allegedly wrote a detailed message on the walls of the boat in which he was hiding. The notes explained his reasons for planting a bomb at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

The Boston Globe reports that while hiding out from authorities, Tsarnaev, 20, wrote: "The US government is killing our innocent civilians." Tsarnaev also wrote, "I can't stand to see such evil go unpunished."

Defense attorneys for Tsarnaev are arguing that the message inscribed on the walls of the boat were meant as an explanation, rather than the suggested notion that they were meant to inspire others.

Tsarnaev has been charged with killing three people in the April 19 attack, as well as injuring another 264 people. In addition, Tsarnaev is also charged in the killing of a university police officer at MIT three days later. Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.
