It could've been as a result from. Getting shut your Europe. It's hard to say but it's certainly a very much like well we act -- a few hours -- act. We're talking -- David able to Boston Globe he was set the courthouse yesterday for the -- -- of proceedings. This is a little bit off the beaten path David betray the theory. About these supporters of people like -- cars -- have a mean one young woman. -- from the state of Washington. With a T shirt to to give her undying support another full grown woman a middle aged woman drove up from from Freetown and said I'm here to show support for him that another thousands of people worldwide. Did do believe in his innocence give a theory about why these people exist and by and large are they tend to be females as opposed to an email supporters. Well you know a great country which is have people with a bat. Array of -- and and people. Submarines and come here I believe things. You're I had my time a little bit. -- bizarre and and look at our columnist Kevin -- today has written about. -- Nick and Paris and -- Let her church yesterday. Have protested. Funerals of soldiers.

From the bought and low finish line where I was standing on the armed -- I would. About global order where Al. On the front page next day and finish line and make a film that is. Was about one runner. And who do it and bought it. Bomb went off and I think a lot of video that. And price at around the world -- -- awful. And watered down there there was some sort of remember that there will work only. A controlled explosion. A third guy and so I leave -- -- You're concerned about that. And and for. Its gentlemen as you get that. -- -- It was a reporter it's. That it didn't happen and our -- -- spirit. I was trying to explain it and that that we -- just reported -- airing at that point. In your opinion and you were at the finish line and you were in the courthouse yesterday. Is this really gonna take that three to four months that the the federal prosecutors said that it could take because it doesn't seem like it's. What is involved is all that asset. Well you know if it is one of the largest. He shouldn't in and the history of any criminal it and New England. Hey. Prosecutors. Suggested in court yesterday that they call 200. I think is these are going to. Try their best you can until they see it every epic. Of the evidence against him and that could take quite a long time in the same time. That's where you are calling it their best try to edit in. So yeah we can expect addict equipment -- it's. Nobody knows how -- -- holes in the trial might might occur could take another. Here before we actually trial there. Take a quick point of law if if I can and I don't know if you know the answer to this but we've had people ask us this question this morning. Can you plead guilty. In what could be a capital offense case if if there's the potential of a death penalty involved are you allowed to plead guilty in that case. I. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And short but I. But I noted each movie where that.

Organ I'll wait and watch. It on our own. Our ability. Final question David whether this becomes a death penalty case is certainly up to attorney general Eric Holder what do you figure the early betting line is on that decision. Well -- from what I gather it's. Very rare. And it it -- penalty at all federal aid. And. I think it you know earth are people who beat it to death penalty should be used. It's hard to find another eight. That it. Ample. And it should he. So I -- I can assure you it will be great pressure. Or. The death penalty. -- -- -- City administration. Decides that that our actions -- the like and I can't. You to the finish line he was in the courtroom he is David -- Boston Globe Dave thanks for the information this morning.
