In our upside-down world, the system seems to side with evil doers and forget the victims of their crimes.

This mass murder left families without loved ones, and 17 people have to spend the rest of their lives without limbs.

Yet this convicted mass murderer is trying to get out of taking care of his victims and wants to make his life in prison nicer.

Boston Bomber wants prison canteen money

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 30, was convicted and sentenced to death for carrying out the infamous Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

Now, the terrorist is trying to keep federal prosecutors from seizing the funds he’s saved in his prison canteen account.

According to the Boston Herald, an attorney for Tsarnaev filed an appeal seeking to stop Boston feds from taking over $4,200 sitting in his account.

The attorneys argued that the death-row inmate is “neither hoarding funds nor spending profligately.”

The news outlet notes that prosecutors say Tsarnaev has also received close to $26,000 in donations from various sources, including his sisters, attorneys, and strangers.

Tsarnaev’s lawyer, David Patton, has also confirmed his client received a $1,400 COVID relief payment.

The attorney also said Tsarnaev “continues to receive unsolicited deposits from people whom he has never met,” but added that his client doesn’t have access to the funds.

For more than two years, federal officials in Massachusetts have been trying to get Tsarnaev to hand over the COVID relief money and other funds he’s received, which are now accumulating in his inmate trust account.

The officials say the money should be put toward the over $101 million he currently owes his victims.

Tsarnaev was ordered to pay more than $101 million in criminal restitution and an additional $3,000 fee following his 2015 trial, and his attorney said he’s paid $2,600 so far.

The terrorist was convicted of 30 charges stemming from the bombing at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon.

He and his brother’s actions at the event killed three people and injured over 260 others, with 17 of the victims losing at least one limb in the attack.

Tsarnaev is being held in Colorado

After the bombing, Tsarnaev and his brother led authorities on a multi-day chase.

Tsarnaev’s brother Tamerlan died, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology Police Officer Sean Collier was shot and killed.

Today, Tsarnaev is being held at Colorado’s ADMX Florence, also known as “The Alcatraz of the Rockies.”

His attorneys are trying to have his death sentence overturned, and the case was recently returned to a lower court to probe for alleged “juror bias.”

Retired warden Bob Hood told the Herald that the taxpayer’s bill for his incarceration has already topped $1 million.

Hood said Tsarnaev’s ability to access the thousands of dollars in his account is “offensive,” adding, “He came in indigent, he should remain an indigent. It’s sick that he has any kind of following.”
