  • Police response to Watertown’s marathon bombing manhunt was flawed, says report

    WGBH - 04/03/2015

    Northeastern University law professor Daniel Medwed says the report’s findings may affect Tsarnaev’s prosecution.

    “It could, as a legal matter, comprise newly discovered evidence that could give rise to a new trial motion afterwards that would challenge some of the charge, specifically the ones that relate to the firefight,” Medwed said.

    The report applauds many aspects of the response, including the quick organization of a command center, the fast actions of medical staff, and the effective preservation of the crime scene.
