Just the ones who wanted to be on local TV.
A small group of demonstrators showed up at Moakley Federal Courthouse in South Boston on Wednesday to show support for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Tsarnaev was set to appear in court for his first public hearing…
A group of about a dozen supporters cheered as the motorcade carrying Tsarnaev arrived at the courthouse. The demonstrators yelled “Justice for Jahar,” as Tsarnaev is known. One woman held a sign that said, “Free Jahar…”
Lacey Buckley, 23, said she traveled from her home in Wenatchee, Wash., to attend the arraignment. Buckley said she has never met Tsarnaev but came because she believes he’s innocent. “I just think so many of his rights were violated. They almost murdered an unarmed kid in a boat,” she said.
As for the unarmed kid who was blown to bits by one of the bombs Tsarnaev planted? Ehhhhhhh.
I think Ace is on the money:
It’s not that the left broadly supports Jahar or anything. They don’t.
But the left, broadly, does have a pathological urge towards evil, or what they’d call Enlightened Contrarianism, or a thoughtful repudiation of conventional morality.
The trouble with such kneejerk contrarianism is that when the dominant position is also right and moral (which it tends to be in most cases, but not all), those who have a psychological need to oppose, oppose the masses, oppose whatever, oppose simply to cry out I exist, are forced into reflexively taking the position opposite of right and good, which is, of course, wrong and evil.
Yep. It’s the same impulse as screaming “Hail Satan” at a bunch of Christians. It’s not that these lefties love Satan. It’s that they know you love God, and they hate you. Being driven primarily by spite will make people do a lot of messed-up crap.
The Free Jahar crowd is just a handful of repulsive mutants, of course. But if the Boston Marathon bombing had been a Tea Party attack, like the MSM was hoping, you can bet that their supporters would be much bigger news.
At least none of these pathetic creeps have written more Jahar “poetry.” I hope.
And this just in:

Well, of course he did. Just look at that face! Who could stay mad at that face? Besides the horribly maimed survivors and the families of those he murdered, of course.
