Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say FBI agents violated their clients rights by questioning him after he asked for a lawyer 10 times from his hospital bed.
The L.A. Times reports the 20-year-old suspect was in pain, according to defense attorneys who also said authorities had determined there was no lingering threat to public safety went they interrogated him in April 2013.

Here they go, setting up to let him go free.
Should have just killed the bastard.
What’s going on? We need due process and all that, but, there should be no chance of him going free.
ColdOne, guess I was wrong ... my request was this perp be taken alive.
What do they want? Make him whole? Release him, give him back section 8, give him back his EBTs, return his pressure cooker and backpack? Too bad man has not invented time machines, or we could move the clock back to the Marathon, so he could have a new chance to blow people up...
There is not a reasonable doubt of his guilt.
He has no rights.
I would expect nothing less from a defense attorney whose client is facing the death penalty. He’s going to throw everything he’s got in the hope that something sticks.
REFERENCE Federal outreach to Muslim American communities is a pillar of Obama counter-terrorism strategy
Washington post | 5/25/2013 | ap / FR Posted by tobyhill
Within hours of the Boston Marathon blasts, government officials and Muslims in Boston called each other to offer assistance. These calls were the fruits of years of cultivating such relationships in an effort to ultimately prevent the very type of attack Boston experienced April 15....
Representatives from the US Departments of Justice and Homeland Security called to offer support to Muslim communities......just in case THEY suffered backlash or threats. (more on FR).
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 half-brother Malik holds up photo of Obama.
is this true? if so, why would they not be hypersensitive about doing every by the book--especially--in this case?
Put him in with the general prison population. Some may consider him a hero but most of the prisoners are still patriotic US citizens and they have their own ways of justice.
What about the rights of the people that were killed & hurt by this guy?!
with all those bullet holes in that boat ,I can’t see how they missed him
ISLAMIC STRANGLEHOLD ON BOSTON Pretty soon they'll start whining about building a mosque close to the Boston Marathon finish line b/c Islam is all about "triumphalism" (thus the plans to build a mosque near the WTC).
And you can bet they'll get lotsa help from Obomba, Boston Mayor Menino, Secy of State Kerry, and Gov Deval Patrick (who obstructed govt dissemination of the Tsarnaev's welfare $$haul). Read on.
WAIT FOR IT---yet another stupid remark from Menino, and I quote.....the Boston bomber brothers "acted alone" says Menino.
STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES Boston Mayor Menino (he was the stupid-sounding one at the presser held after the marathon bombings----in the wheelchair---injured in auto accident) should be rigorously scrutinized ---- possibly charged with aiding and abetting terror against Americans. Menino handed Islamics a $2 million piece of land for $170,000 to build the Boston Mosque.

EDITED/EXCERPT Most Boston locals concede that getting anything of substance accomplished in Boston is a Herculean task. Residents have all but embraced the principle of civic inaction with a perverse kind of local pride. In the end, "who you know" is probably more important than what you are trying to do.
STRONGARM MAYOR And there is no doubt that little is accomplished without the approval and support of the mayor, Thomas M. Menino.
So it is with the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) near the intersection of Tremont Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Better known as the Roxbury mosque, the ISBCC has been in the works for more than 20 years. A few weeks ago it finally opened its doors for prayer five years late, millions over budget, and still far from complete.
While the story of the building of the Roxbury mosque may not be worthy of a Hollywood epic, it does contain the stuff of a good television drama: (with Mayor Menino aiding and abetting) community intrigue, religious conflict, media controversy, foreign money, suspicions of extremist ties......and once-cocksure public officials, who (like Menino and then-Sen Kerry who once gave Islamics serial BJ's) have since retreated into a zone of silence.
Bombers worshipped at Islamic Society of Boston's mosque.---built w/ strongarm sap-happy Menino's govt authority.
Kerry's "credentials," presented to Ohaha when the Secy of State job became available.
Islamic jihadist motivation that drove the Boston massacre is a non-starter in the WH.
Obama admin unilaterally changes law to allow immigrants
with 'limited' terror contact into US The Daily Caller
| 2/5/14 / FR Posted by Nachum
The Obama administration has issued new exemptions to a law that bars certain asylum-seekers and refugees who provided limited material support to terrorists who are believed to pose no threat from the U.S.
The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department published the new exemptions Wednesday in the Federal Register to narrow a ban in the Immigration and Nationality Act excluding refugees and asylum seekers who had provided limited material support, no matter how minor, to terrorists.
These exemptions cover five kinds of limited material support that have adversely and unfairly affected refugees and asylum seekers with no tangible connection to terrorism: material support that was insignificant in amount or provided incidentally in the course of everyday social, commercial, family or humanitarian interactions, or under significant pressure, a DHS official explained to The Daily Caller.
Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry signed the exemptions. DHS contends that the law change is commonsense and that immigration procedures will remain the same in other respects. (Excerpt) Read more at dailycaller.com ...
my personal opinion is attorneys lie when they look to reshape destiny.
Thank you Liz ... You have found a witch’s cabin key.
I have to agree with Tsarnaev’s lawyers on this one.
Don’t burn down the Constitution to fry one snake.
Plenty of evidence to execute him even without his statements.
Why no treason charge?
Wall be sticky as I an attorney throw lies?
He should never have been allowed to SET FOOT in this country. The rights of every Bostonian were violated.
Yoda an attorney be?
Set him free I’d give him a year to survive at the outmost!
Nope, nor FBI, CIA, or any other alphabet person but in my life have watched. Guess am a skeptic. Have been accused though of being one of the alphabet persons. Does that count?
Too bad there are not anymore Judge
Parkers around! Anymore
I’d volunteer, if they’d let me. Hell, I’d personally spring the trap door, if they’d let me.
America is about to get a powerful lesson on just WHY Bush established Gitmo and Military Tribunals.
This looks like the gallows at Fort Smith, Arkansas, my hometown (Judge Parker did his share to rid the territory of outlaws, back in ‘the day’).
Agreed. This sort of thing is S.O.P. for defense attorneys. If all this stuff isn't covered now, then it would set him up for a successful appeal down the road. Let's get all these goofy arguments out of the way now.
I'd love to get down that way to visit the National Park. In studying that era of history, I am surprised at just how little time it took to convert Ft. Smith from a wild outlaw town into a nice town of church goers with predictable and consistent application of Judge Parker's special hempen therapy.
They can’t, he is an American Citizen. Throwing him in Gitmo is a short step to sending the rest of us to the camps.
There’s no chance of him going free over this. At most, he might get the statements that were made during those interrogations declared inadmissible.
“There is not a reasonable doubt of his guilt.”
Well, in the USA, that is for a court to decide.
“He has no rights.”
Guilty or innocent, everyone has rights.
Nah, once the Feds have you on a terrorism charge, you have no rights. Hope Cliven Bundy is paying attention. Let’s Roll!
It’s not the defense attorney’s job to worry about the victims. His job is to worry about his client. Disgusting job, but someone’s gotta do it. That’s our system.
Sure, that’s why his lawyers are able to argue this in court and the media is covering the story, obviously because we are living in a brutal dictatorship where people’s rights are just stripped away. /sarc
