Updating our earlier report:
Details are emerging that when U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler read Dhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, she went to his hospital room accompanied by a federal public defender (meaning taxpayer-funded) and an assistant U.S. attorney from the Massachusetts prosecutors office.
Reports say the FBI was only partway through questioning Tsarnaev to get intelligence to determine who else was involved in the plot and how broad it was. The FBI told federal lawmakers in classified briefings this week they were stunned when this judicial officer and lawyers from both sides showed up to read him his rights. Tsarnaev was providing what the FBI called valuable intelligence, when he was read his rights and then immediately stopped talking.
As weve explained before, the only danger with denying someone Miranda rights is that whenever the Constitution would require those rights to be announced, anything the defendant says after that point cannot be used to convict him in court. When the public-safety exception to Miranda appliesas it does herepolice generally have about 48 hours of questioning the suspect before a judge would say the agents have had enough time to deal with imminent threats and therefore must now administer Miranda. The FBI was only 16 hours into those 48 hours when Miranda was given.....

Will that “matter of time” be in any of our lifetimes? I have little hope any longer.
“Now just imagine ANY other previous administration doing this and the uproar that would ensue.”
If these bombings had happened under a Republican administration, the Democrats and press would have been demanding the resignation of the both the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Director of the FBI for incompetence the minute the news came out about Russian warning the US about the brother and the FBI having interviewed him. Pelosi and Reid would be conducting hearings and press conferences daily.
At this point we hear crickets chirping from the Republicans. Obama, Holder and Napolitano must be laughing at Boehner and McConnell.
OBOMBA CELEBRATES HIS HERITAGE ON A TRIP
TO KENYA AT AGE 23-24 Hillary/Bill had these pics during
the primary---but Teddy Kennedy warned them not to use them.
Obama's brother Malik holds up photo.
I believe this is O's aunt outside her Kenyan hut.
Was there ever any doubt?
How long till this kid “commits suicide”?
Boehner is preoccupied with the bottle he keeps in his drawer, and McConnell is too busy duct-taping the Basset hound folds of his face so they don't droop onto his desk.
We have the enemy inside the White House. As far as I'm concerned, those gutless quislings are every bit as complicit if they don't speak up.
Well of course, he was taking orders from someone at the highest rung of the ladder. I’ll be soooo glad when 0 leaves office. I have a feeling theyre going to be rewriting Executive Orders procedures and powers after he leaves.
If there was any shred or lingering doubt that Holder-Obama are enemies of the state?
The FBI is not a stand-alone agency. The DOJ has oversight of the FBI, always has. And, as has always been, the DOJ can shut down any FBI investigation.
> We have people more radical than even McCarthy and the 60s era Birchers could have even believed.
I don’t think even McCarthy would believe how brazen the Commies have become today.
“Shut the hell up and we will take care of this. Your survival depends on you doing as we tell you.”
I’m no fan of Holder’s Justice Department, but it’s kind of silly to suggest that anyone “undercut” the FBI when that agency had demonstrated such rank incompetence with these particular individuals in the past. I have no evidence to suggest that the FBI would have been any more successful in questioning the younger mutant than they had been when dealing with the older one a couple of years ago.
This is true.
So.... why the big ruckus ? Why did DOJ use a 'patsy' judge and why is the FBI throwing a public fit ?
nig rule....... that’s all that matters
The fix is in!
This is precisely why I bought a gun. I can’t trust my pacifist nation to protect me. Conservative Minority Since 2006 Elections.
