Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has reportedly sued the federal government for $ 250,000 for treatment in a Colorado prison where he is currently serving a life sentence.
The lawsuit, in part, explicitly references allegations that prison guards took away his hat and headscarf while restricting the use of showers, which Tsarnaev claims, adding to his fear.
The Boston Herald reports that Tsarnaev “specifically cites the confiscation of his white baseball cap and headscarf, which he bought from the prison superintendent and which he can no longer shower.”
The report notes that Tsarnaev claims “the harsh treatment made his life in the prison’s H Unit so anxious that it contributed to his” mental and physical decline. “
The 27-year-old is demanding $ 250,000 in damages from a maximum security prison in Colorado.
He claims his baseball cap and headscarf were confiscated by prison guards “because they were worn [he] “disregarded” the FBI and the victims of the attack. http: //t.co/LOkiZDMD98

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan set fire to self-made pressure cooker bombs in the 2013 Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring over 260.
They later shot and killed Sean A. Collier of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Police Department six times.
Tamerlane was killed in a shooting with police three days later after the bombing, while Dzhokhar was captured the following day after a massive manhunt.
Tsarnaev has been called a “white hat” by law enforcement agencies because he was caught with a back cap on security video during the terrorist attack.
The lawsuit alleges that the guards removed his hat “because by wearing it I” disregarded “the FBI and the victims of the bombing.

Kamala Harris says we should consider allowing the Boston Marathon Bomber to vote
Tsarnaev was convicted of his crimes and initially sentenced to death.
The death sentence was overturned last July after a panel of three judges ruled that the trial judge “missed out” when reviewing the jury for possible prejudice.
This decision has been appealed to the US Supreme Court.

Kamala Harris, who will be officially sworn in as Vice President of the United States in a few days, said during the primaries she was open to the idea of having the Boston Marathon bomber voted.
The comment came as a result of the socialist Bernie Sanders, who “offered a full defense against the election of criminals during their incarceration without protecting himself from the convicted Islamist terror bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev”.
At CNN’s fourth Democratic Primary Hall, host Don Lemon Harris asked, “People convicted in jail, like the Boston Marathon Bomber, on death row, people convicted of sexual assault should be able to vote? “
“I think we should have this conversation,” replied Harris.
