波士顿爆炸案凶手被控30项罪名全部成立

是否死刑成焦点
2015-04-09 03:30:00 来源: 中国新闻网(北京)

中新社纽约4月8日电 2013年美国波士顿马拉松爆炸案的凶手焦哈尔·萨纳耶夫8日被陪审团裁决有罪,他是否会在下一阶段被判处死刑成为该案最大焦点。

在经过两天半的商议后,陪审团8日下午宣布焦哈尔被控的30项罪名全部成立,包括密谋使用大规模杀伤性武器造成死亡等,其中17项罪名都有可能被判死刑。

美国有线电视新闻网直播显示,焦哈尔在宣判期间低头站立、双手紧握。

其实,焦哈尔被判有罪并无太大争议。他的律师在3月4日开庭当天就承认焦哈尔参与了爆炸案的实施,应该对自己的行为负责。

相对于检方在15天的作证时间里传唤92名证人,焦哈尔的辩护律师只传讯了4位证人。以美国著名刑事犯罪辩护律师朱迪·克拉克为首的律师团,试图将时年19岁的焦哈尔描述为一个普通的大学生,称他的哥哥塔梅尔兰才是该案主谋,目的就是让陪审团只判他终生监禁而非死刑。

2013年4月15日,波士顿马拉松终点线附近发生爆炸,造成3人遇害,逾260人受伤。贾哈尔和塔梅尔兰被确定为嫌犯,在逃亡过程中,他们还造成一名麻省理工大学的校警死亡,最终塔梅尔兰在和警方的交火中被打死,贾哈尔被捕。

对于焦哈尔的审判共分两个阶段,第一阶段由陪审团决定他是否有罪。在确定他有罪后,该案进入第二阶段,即由同一个陪审团决定他该受到何种刑罚。

虽然对于焦哈尔是否有罪,舆论意见相对一致,但他是否会被判处死刑,人们分歧明显。上月初该案开审后不久,波士顿当地媒体的民调显示,有62%的波士顿人认为该判焦哈尔终身监禁不得保释,27%的受访者认为应判他死刑。

波士顿所在的马萨诸塞州盛行自由主义,有反对死刑的传统。该州在1984年废除死刑,但早从1947年开始就再没执行过死刑。不过焦哈尔是在联邦法律受审,仍有被判死刑的可能。

然而,该案陪审团成员都是马萨诸塞州人,而且焦哈尔的辩护律师朱迪·克拉克此前曾屡次助人逃脱死刑惩罚。此案最终结果如何还得看下一步审判。(完)

彭城堂 刘氏最为著名堂号。彭城是刘姓郡望,也是汉家刘氏的发源地。因此,许多刘氏宗族都将自己的祠堂称为"彭城堂",以标明自己为彭城刘氏,是正宗的汉家后裔。甚至出自他源的刘氏,如匈奴刘氏、沙陀刘氏等,因年代久远,谱系失考,上代失叙,也对外自称为彭城刘氏,往往以"彭城堂"作为本族堂号。现今以"彭城堂"为堂号的刘姓,在中国南北各地和海外华人中都有发现

〖摘要:〗

 …

Sometimes it’s easy to get caught within the bounds of where an accepted solution “should” come from.  We need to look a the tools that we are given,  and get creative not just with the solution, but with the tools themselves.

The following concerns a question in a physics degree exam at the University of Copenhagen.  The story goes like this:

“Describe how to determine the height of a skyscraper with a barometer.”

One student replied: “You tie a long piece of string to the neck of the barometer, then lower the barometer from the roof of the skyscraper to the ground. The length of the string plus the length of the barometer will equal the height of the building.”

This highly original answer so incensed the examiner that the student was failed immediately. The student appealed on the grounds that his answer was indisputably correct, and the university appointed an independent arbiter to decide the case.

The arbiter judged that the answer was indeed correct, but did not display any noticeable knowledge of physics. To resolve the problem it was decided to call the student in and allow him six minutes in which to provide a verbal answer which showed at least a minimal familiarity with the basic principles of physics.

For five minutes the student sat in silence, forehead creased in thought.

The arbiter reminded him that time was running out, to which the student replied that he had several extremely relevant answers, but couldn’t make up his mind which to use. On being advised to hurry up the student replied as follows:

 

Measuring a building
Measuring a building

“Firstly, you could take the barometer up to the roof of the skyscraper, drop it over the edge, and measure the time it takes to reach the ground. The height of the building can then be worked out from the formula H = 0.5g x t squared. But bad luck on the barometer.” “Or if the sun is shining you could measure the height of the barometer, then set it on end and measure the length of its shadow. Then you measure the length of the skyscraper’s shadow, and thereafter it is a simple matter of proportional arithmetic to work out the height of the skyscraper.” “But if you wanted to be highly scientific about it, you could tie a short piece of string to the barometer and swing it like a pendulum, first at ground level and then on the roof of the skyscraper. The height is worked out by the difference in the gravitational restoring force T = 2 pi sq root (l/g).”

“…or if the skyscraper has an outside emergency staircase, it would be easier to walk up it and mark off the height of the skyscraper in barometer lengths, then add them up.” “If you merely wanted to be boring and orthodox about it, of course, you could use the barometer to measure the air pressure on the roof of the skyscraper and on the ground, and convert the difference in millibars into feet to give the height of the building.”

“But since we are constantly being exhorted to exercise independence of mind and apply scientific methods, undoubtedly the best way would be to knock on the janitor’s door and say to him ‘If you would like a nice new barometer, I will give you this one if you tell me the height of this skyscraper’.”

加纳的旱季时间大约是每年的11 月初 到第二年的4 月底, 但在这期间,特别是中北部山区常会有大雨. 昨晚在首都阿克拉就下了场大雨,雨后空气清新,还可去芒果树下捡些新鲜美味的芒果. NPP 28 日要去最高法院控告NDC 在选举中作弊的事. 希望一切都好,不要乱起来.. 

 just as my brother, Clay said NDC  and NPP, they are just the same boy with different name.  And i believe that they are all good boys.  The water tanks is full and it is overflowing, I must go and let the boy turn off the power for the pump.

All the best  for my dear family members and my friends in Zhuoda and in China. I miss you all  and wish you prosperous in the coming year of snake of the Chinese lunar calendar......
