ACLU Eyes Boston Bombing Suspect's Miranda Rights
BOSTON April 20, 2013
The American Civil Liberties Union says it's concerned the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect will be questioned by investigators without being read his Miranda rights.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KAHR' tsahr-NY'-ehv) remained hospitalized Saturday after being wounded in a firefight with police Friday. His brother was killed earlier.
U.S. officials say a special interrogation team for high-value suspects will question Tsarnaev without reading him his Miranda rights, invoking a rare public safety exception triggered by the need to protect the public from immediate danger.
ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero says the exception applies only when there's a continued threat to public safety and is "not an open-ended exception" to the Miranda rule.

LOL. I agree, if you don’t have anything to say then just ...
Some brilliant photoshopper can come up with an image of “Special interrogation team for high-value suspects” in the style of Obama.
Today Larry Kudlow had Washington DC, former US Attorney Joe DiGenova on his radio show and DiGenova laid the blame for the FBI cutting the terrorist brother loose directly on Obama and his policy of Muslim appeasement.
No, Obama already won the war and America has no more enemies. Therefore, it wasn’t treason to throw bombs at a crowd of sports enthusiasts, only...rambunctiousness. Yeah. That’s the ticket./sarc?
I’d love to waterboard ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero ~
I am sure that should they name the time and place of his release ........ the people would take care of the problem.
Any relation to Caesar? What a joker.
I look at the ACLU as though there are merely an agent for NAMBLA and nothing more than that.
Being read his Miranda rights only means that he understands the consequences of talking and that if he requests a lawyer, one must be provided. But it doesn’t mean that the FBI can’t question him. The information the FBI gets from him about his contacts, the number and names of people in his cell, who has been providing material and monetary support is far more valuable than any information he could provide useful to his conviction.
Let him go. It’s MA. Shove their idiotic laws and policies in their face.
The terror masters knew to make him a citizen before these attacks were carried out because they knew the left wing in this country(like the ACLU) would come running to his rescue should he be caught. He got his citizenship on Sept. 11,2012. That was no accident either. His older brother was working towards citizenship, but was denied for run in with law.
We are better off trying to get information from this guy about why, how and by whom he was “turned”.
As far as Miranda Rights are concerned, remember this. This did NOT happen - his capture - on foreign soil. Technically he is not a guerrilla fighter unprotected by the Geneva Convention.
He is a civilian who committed a crime on U.S. soil - a horrendous crime, but a crime nonetheless.
Frankly I don’t trust Mother Napolitano, Her Bossman Obama or ANY of their underlings with the power to exclude constitutional protections from anyone they deem a “terrorist”.
Just a few days ago Obama’s FBI stated Catholics and Fundamentalist Protestants were “terrorists”.
When Mother Napolitano took over, she clearly stated people who oppose abortion, people who oppose the UN, people who resent paying taxes, people who support the Second Amendment, and Veterans were ALL potential “terrorists”.
THEY are more of a danger to US than this guy who is already in custody and clearly guilty.
The government ALWAYS operates by precedent. Hodie mihi, cras tibi.
I don’t think it makes a difference regarding the Miranda rights.
It could perhaps be argued that anything he says can not be used against him, but there is enough video evidence to convict him without anything he might say.
In other words, they don’t need Miranda to convict him. Also they can split the Boston bombing and the murdered cop.
” How are they going to get him to talk w/o violating his rights. Hes a US citizen.”
Miranda is to protect him from self incrimination. It has nothing to do with protecting others that might be involved...
Heck with their rights!!! Every time on of these law breakers do something we lose some of our rights!!!!!
Not surprised — everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame. This punk will have his legion of defenders claiming that he was misunderstood.
Gee, I didn’t see this coming. I mean, the ACLU standing up for the enemies of all that is good and right, who would have thought?
I'd love to help.
