I urge you to sign this petition in an effort to secure and promote Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's right to due process of law. This petition is not to insist that Dzhokhar is innocent; however, given that many people have jumped the gun and many more continue to arrive at the foregone conclusion that Dzhokhar is undoubtedly a "terrorist", or a so called radical "Jihadist," or "Muslim," it is time to take a step back and allow the judiciary to determine this young man's fate. By signing this petition you agree that the aforesaid conduct is contributing to prejudice against Muslims and severely undermining Dzhokhar’s chance for a fair and proper trial, to which every U.S. Citizen is entitled.
"When public men indulge themselves in abuse, when they deny others a fair trial, when they resort to innuendo and insinuation, to libel, scandal, and suspicion, then our democratic society is outraged, and democracy is baffled."
