(NECN) - It was announced Thursday that federal prosecutors would seek the death penalty against Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Survivor Jarrod Clowery, who was injured in the blasts, shared his thoughts on the government's decision.

"I think those boys were tried and convicted by a higher power - much, much higher than all of us - when they did what they did," said Clowery. "Any which way it goes, I'm sure, in my mind, in my heart, justice is served. It was a despicable thing those boys did, and I'm really seeing the ripple effects now on the damages done."

Clowery explained that three of his friends lost their legs that day in Boston and that his ear drum was blown out. He is now recovering from a recent ear surgery.

He said he puts faith in the prosecutors to handle the case in the legal system.

"I trust they're going to do the right thing, there, because in our society, there's no room for that," said Clowery. "That's a pretty despicable act."
