“Make no mistake, the defendant claimed to be acting on behalf of Muslims. This was not a religious crime. And it certainly does not reflect true Muslim beliefs. It was a political crime, designed to intimidate and coerce the United States.

The defendant was an adult, who came to believe in an ideology of hate. And he expressed those beliefs by killing, maiming and mutilating innocent Americans on Patriot’s Day.”
