US execution chaos complicates Boston bomber sentence

Pete Williams, NBC News justice correspondent, reports on what's next in the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev case now that he's sentenced to death. Rachel Maddow points out that the Federal Bureau of Prisons doesn't actually have the drugs to put him to death, and may not be allowed to anyway depending on how the Supreme Court rules on lethal injection next month. The confounding fight over the death penalty in Nebraska is highlighted as an example of the national upheaval over capital punishment.
