Defense Asks to Ease Prison Restrictions on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
New York Magazine ^ | 10/3 | Margaret Hartmann

Posted on 10/02/2013 8:44:38 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Lawyers for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev asked a judge on Wednesday to lift restrictions placed on the alleged Boston Marathon bomber that prevent him from communicating with other inmates, or visiting anyone other than his family and legal team. They say the restrictions are "unnecessarily harsh and isolating," and hinder their work on his defense. "He is confined to his cell except for legal visits and very limited access to a small outdoor enclosure, on weekdays, weather-permitting," says the motion. "The purported basis for these conditions lies in the crimes he is alleged to have committed prior to arrest, not any behavior during his confinement."

Attorney General Eric Holder imposed the "Special Administrative Measures," saying there's a "high probability" that Tsarnaev might try to make "calls to co-conspirators to arrange terrorist or criminal activities." The defense questioned whether Holder actually believes that, as Tsarnaev was in custody for four months before the rules were issued, and he "made no effort to communicate with non-family or media" during that time.

I thought the article was going to say he’s been hanging in chains.
But he’s lonely? Poor baby ....

This terrorist scumbag is lucky that he can visit with members of his family.

The families of this terrorist’s innocent victims would like to visit THEIR loved ones, but they can’t, because this creep and his older brother killed them.

I have no sympathy for him.

Doesn't want to take away from that Friday afternoon, late in 2016, when the million-man pardon is announced. Tsarnaev, and probably all the Criminalians across the land in jails will be pardoned.

If Tsarnaev had tried the same crime he is charged with at home ,chances are he wouldn't be alive now .
After all , it's not like he is dangerous or anything, since the pressure cooker bomb is already exploded , and he has no more bombs with him. ... /sarc

I'm all for letting him out through the same exit that we gave Timothy McVeigh.

We might have actually set a record with that one: six years. Hopefully, we can do better this time around.

He’s a gummint agent, as his older brother was. Who was recruited by the Uncle. Who married someone with important connections in the CIA.

I don’t know exactly what’s going on with this story, but there is MUCH more to it than just a couple of muzzies suddenly busting out, full Sudden Jihad Syndrome.

OlderBro was secular, but very suddenly became this super muzzie guy.

Russia warned us multiple times about older bro, but magically our side appeared not to listen.

Why would THAT be?

Their Florida buddy was in FBI custody for about 5 hours, but was not taken to the station? And then was killed after extensive questioning? Cuz he attacked his questioners after five hours?

And two Fibbers who’d been in on that arrest fell to their deaths in a most unfortunate fast-roping incident?

Anyone who doesn’t suspect that OlderBro and possibly litterBro also were assets of US intel is not being suspicious enough.

Let this moron into the general population, he’ll be killed within days by fellow prisoners. So go ahead, DOJ, lift the restrictions and put him into the general population. Help assimilate him by making sure that fellow prisoners are familiar with his accused acts.

But let’s be honest here, this is all just theater from the defense, demanding things that they know won’t happen and would harm their client if it did. They’re working forward in the game, assuming he’ll be convicted of the crimes he’s committed. And they want him to be a tiny little celebrity in whatever maximum security prison he lands in, as they are sure they can keep him from being executed.

So DOJ, jump the shark, lift all restrictions, and save the taxpayers a huge amount of money.

It was a mixed marriage. She was a Texas Longhorn, he was an Okie Sooner.
They were sleeping when an escaped convict broke into their home and tied them up.
She was hog-tied on the bed, dressed in a skimpy Teddy and gagged; he was tied securely to a chair.
He said, “Honey, I know it’s hard but this guy prolly hasn’t had sex in a while. If we cooperate with him and if you’re nice, we might get out of this alive.”

She slipped her gag and spit this at him: “I’m glad you feel that way ‘cause when was a-tyin’ me up, he said you were really cute.”

And I forgot —they had video of some naked guy looking JUST like OlderBro being taken into custody.

“Ah, no —that’s all wrong..! Wrong guy..!”, said US authorities, then busy terrorizing most of Boston, a major city on total lock-down.

Muzzies are treacherous, yes, very. And Chechnyans, especially.

But come now —do you expect THIS US gummint to tell the truth, or even partially so..?

A toe at a time.


Starting with a very slow removal of each toe nail first by an angry podiatrist - while Dzhokhar Tsarnaev watches. Then start with the toe amputations sans anesthesia, pain medications, and anesthetics. When he passes out, wait for him to come to before continuing. Then continue with the leg amputations under the same conditions. Do these procedures in his cell with no sterilization procedures or conditions.

I think he’s a patsy, and that the bombing was a government false flag attack designed to acclimate us to “shelter in place” martial law. If you look into the history of domestic terror attacks, more often than not they originate in the FBI as a PR stunt.

True. There is honor among thieves. Even criminals don't like terrorists much, not to mention, some inmate would like to make a name for himself, by saying he was the one to off the terrorist.

I am unrepentantly in the minority on this one.

He set off a bomb in Boston. The probability is that everyone he killed was an Obama voter who supported abortion, infanticide and the curtailment of liberty in the name of bigger government.

He killed democrats. He subjected them to the effects caused by their policies. It was the politically correct liberals that actually set those bombs off. It was the professors at Harvard and the voters of Massachusetts that support demonratic policies. They got what they deserved. I wish he’ killed enough people cause them to re-evaluate their political positions.

This was not terrorism this was justice.

OK, genius at large: when was he tried and found guilty?

Did he set off a bomb? Or was he and his brother hired to position fake bombs for a drill?

The person whose hands were burnt by the bombs is a Saudi Arabian with ties to Al Qaida (13 family members at Gitmo) and somehow related to the Saudi Royal family. This guy was hustled out of the country and we can all expect he will not be testifying at any trial.

Why do we decry George Zimmerman being found guilty in the public forum, then do the same exact thing to Tsarnaev?
