Prosecutors opened the death-penalty phase of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's trial in memorable fashion: with a photo of the bomber flipping off a security camera in his jail cell just a few months after the attack. (The photo hasn't been made public, though WBUR posted a sketch on Twitter here.) “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was and is unrepentant, uncaring, and untouched about even half the sorrow he has created,” prosecutor Nadine Pellegrini told jurors, reports the Boston Globe. The photo was taken on July 10, 2013, three months after the bombing, notes AP. (More Boston Marathon bombing stories.)
