NJ Gov. Christie Reflects After Boston Marathon Bombings
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie reflected on the shocking chain of events of the past week after two brothers allegedly set off bombs during the Boston Marathon.
Earlier this evening, hours after 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was formally charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction, many questions remain unanswered about the tragedy.
“It’s a dangerous world, and the fact is we’re never ever going to make it completely safe. Life is never going to be without risk, especially life in a place as vital as New Jersey,” said Christie, during Townsquare Media’s Ask The Governor show.
He also said unfortunately, we’ve learned that “bad people do bad things,: and that it’s up to law enforcement to do everything they can to try and prevent bad actors before they take bad action.
An attorney representing the sister of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects says the family may issue a public statement on the case tomorrow. Ailina Tsarnaev has been holed up with her husband and baby in her West New York, New Jersey apartment since the end of last week.
Her lawyer says it’s a very tough time for the family and “you can imagine what they are going through.”
Two bombs exploded one week ago as runners were crossing the finish line. Three people were killed and more than 200 were injured.
Twenty-six-year old bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was pronounced dead last Friday after a shootout with police. His younger brother Dzhokhar was captured later that night.
