The Boston Marathon Bombing Trial and the Process of Justice

The trial of the suspected bomber of the Boston Marathon, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, began this week.  Rebekah Gregory a survivor of the bombing was one of the first to testify.  After doing so, she published an open letter to Mr. Tsarnaev stating, "Today I looked at you right in the face and realized I wasn’t afraid anymore. And today I realized that sitting across from you was somehow the crazy kind of step forward that I needed all along."  Testifying in court is an essential element of the process of justice.  See this Washington Post article for more.
