Do you agree with the Boston Marathon SUSPECT being charged as a regular criminal murderer rather than as an ENEMY COMBATANT?

    He is a "criminal murderer" - like McVeigh, like Eric Rudolph, like James Holmes and Adam Lanza - and should be treated as such. The only difference between the individuals I just named, who all caused just as much harm or more, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is that the latter is a Muslim man with some radical stuff on his Facebook (or whatever). That doesn't make him some kind of warrior.

    We shouldn't be so afraid of our constitutional system and the protections it provides, so ready to drop them the moment they become inconvenient or we're confronted with someone we feel is just too despicable...we've dealt with far worse than this lowlife and done it in the light of day. Personally I find it a mark of how great this country is that we'll allow even a terrorist his day in court, to have his case heard. On the flipside, the idea that the mere allegation of involvement with terrorist activity causes all your constitutional rights to evaporate and enables the government to disappear you away to who-knows-where indefinitely should terrify everyone - civil libertarians on the left and limited-government types on the right alike.

     

    In any case, the second bomber gave himself up in the end and seems to be talking...I have a feeling it will be possible to get needed information from him without turning to Dick Cheney's proverbial "dark side."

    @ Softy

    One thing to mention.  For someone who's as universally disliked on this board as you are you're very quick to want a maximum punishment for actions you find objectionable.  There are many of us here who'd like nothing better than to have you banned for life.  In fact, it's been tried by BDC many times but thus far you've always circumvented their attempts.

    It's a whole lot hypocritical of you to want to violate the Constitution of this country in order to invoke what you (wrongly) consider to be "the will of the people" in the case of the Marathon Bomber while at the same time ignoring the will of the people by hanging around here spreading your right-wing rhetoric.

    You are apparently afraid that the Marathon Bomber is going to be able to circumvent the laws of the country while you don't hesitate in the least to circumvent the rules of BDC.  But, I'd expect nothing less from you.

    And while I'm not at all comparing Softy's actions to that of the Marathon Bomber I do want to point out the hypocracy in the principle of what's Softy's saying.

    The one that amazes me is the Fort Hood shooter who the Obama Administration has the guy being tried as work place violence as opposed to terrorism  even with the radical beleifs the shooter had. They are going to give this Boston Bomber a free attorney as well. My question is who was paying the college tuition of these two supposed students. Dartmouth and Cambridge are not cheap schools to attend. 

      B I N G O ....... "Let me be clear" !!!!  I do n ot trust the "BIG O" & company !!!

    If we eliminate the hypcrites who change twist their values to suit their agenda, we'd likely not have enough left for a game of solataire.

    He was a great student and had a merit scholarship to CRL.

    No. Quite frankly, I believe he should be water-boarded until he gives up everything and everyone. Once data is confirmed and it is believed he has nothing more to offer he should be shot by a firing squad for treason.



    We are a society of law and order, not Aghanistan. He can't be any enemy combant if he isnt allied with an enemy. Being a Muslim and his brothers YouTube arent enough to link him to al Quida. On top of that torture questionable on how much it works.

    My concern is if there are anyone else who played a role in this besides the two murderers.

    Big Bro was likely the driving force/point man of the attack; odds are IF either of these two morons had knowledge of others being involved, he would have been the one.  We may not find out as much from the younger one as we hope, not because of Miranda or anything else, but because it's very likely he doesn't know anything about anyone above his brother. 

    The FBI, etc, are going to have to trace the money; that's the only way they are going to find out who was funding the whole thing.  I'm guessing that little bro is going to have very little info on that.
