Well I’m so pleased at the ending of this, what a great flipping job the Police & FBI did.  I’m proud of the people of Boston.    

Some people just can’t be happy and must throw a wet blanket on happiness.   Again so proud of Boston!!

I am saddened and angered that the government thinks it’s A-OK to deny an American citizen his Miranda rights.  This fucking government.  When one person’s rights are violated, ALL of our rights are violated.  I am not usually one to “stick up” or “sympathize” with criminals, and I do not think he deserves special treatment (only that which will keep him alive so we can hear what he has to say), but he IS an American citizen, and therefore should have been read his rights.

@peachacid:  +1  He’s a citizen.  Just because he perpetuated violence doesn’t mean he isn’t entitled to his rights as a citizen.

 

I’m actually pretty damn worried about all of this.  My Fiance identifies strongly with the Russian community down here, we have friends that served with the Russian army in Chechnya, and it’s all damn concerning.  I’m worried the US is now going to stick its nose in that situation because of this and unbalance things further in that region, or worse, try to make Russia responsible for all of this.  We’re also pretty damn nervous to be out and about speaking Russian at all the past day or so.  I’m just glad I don’t wear a headscarf for any reason.  The Russian communities are tense, or at least they are in Virginia.  And that’s the stuff that makes me crazy — the collective guilt and potential for vigiliante justice that always comes up after these things.

@mistress_anne:  Don’t worry, even NPR is making a big deal about the fact that they aren’t Chechen.  When they did not live in the US, they lived in Kirgistan, which is, you know, one of those Muslim countries.  *rolls eyes*

@peachacid:  Whereas Fox News keeps “explaining” about how being from regions of Russia in the Caucasus means the suspect “isn’t Caucasian.”  *facepalm*  I anticipate backlash.  I just do.  It always comes, one way or another.

@peachacid:  Stating the Miranda Warning doesn’t give or take away someone’s rights.  The rights are there whether or not the “right to remain silent” is stated.  Being read the Miranda Warning is a way for law enforcement to cover their own asses.  The rights exist in the constitution regardless.

@the boss of you:  They exist, but someone might not realize that, especially a weakened, exhausted teenager.  Hell, I’d rather cops read the Devil the Miranda warning than just start questioning him.
