The big story this week happened when a jury convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: guilty on all 30 counts.

Also this week, Gov. Charlie Baker's MBTA panel found the system in need of major overhaul. The report sparked a debate about reform versus revenue.

And, as the nation absorbs the horrific images of police officer Michael Slager shooting dead Walter Scott as he tried to run away, law enforcement officials in Boston release to the public a video that they say shows a convicted felon shooting a Boston cop in the face last month.
