    Thank you Marshall.

    Ms. Ima- I suspect the toon is far more about this:

    But please don’t let me stop you from jumping to conclusions. It helps to make Marshall’s point.

    Ima, you live in America. It would behoove you to learn how America works before making such a fool of yourself. Everything you say may be true. It may be false reporting by the horrible lying liberal media — how would you know? The evidence will be presented to a jury. There will be presentations by professional lawyers on both sides, to make absolutely sure that it’s fair. If the evidence convinces the jury, then he’s guilty. If the evidence is not conclusive, than he’s innocent. The government can imprison him, but it can’t kill him before he’s had a trial. You, of all people, who hate and distrust the government of our country, should be leery of giving it the powers you’re calling for.

    @Kylop

    Yeah, I saw that too. Has there been anything other than speculation as to why he ended up in the river?

    Now, all the things Ima said, have been in the news as reported by the authorities investigation. Some pretty damning evidence but until he is placed before a jury of his peers (if an impartial jury can be impaneled) he is presumed innocent.

    He can be very guilty before the trail. But once you have him in custody and tell him his rights, well he has them. but he can still be guilty as sin but the legal courts can not do anything to “punish” him till they prove he is guilty. that is how it works. Some of the exception from what i understand, we need to know if the Boston Bomber is going to put any more innocent american lives in jeopardy. can not do that if his is told he does not want to talk. He did attack Americans for the simple fact that they were Americans. The radical islamic are still at War with us despite what Obama thinks. So that puts him in a position of waiting to get his rights until the law of this land determines they have every last drop of information ruin from his head, and I see no reason to mean that literally with water boarding and any other method we have. The only problem I see is that the CIA and others said they were not done with him before he was read his rights.
    Reading of the rights is a way of crossing the t and dotting the i so you can bring the guy to legal trial so he does not get a lawyer to get him off on a technicality. Thing is most Americans could care less about a trial in which we debate over how bad he is and how bad he should be punished. We just want 2 things. Prove he is guilty, then punish him. Let that come out in trial. I do not think a lawyer could screw that up to bad.
    Oh and it is not like he is out on his own with a bounty on his head like the guy in Florida because a media station decided to cut and paste a 911 tape. Nope we the public can be very sure the guy is guilty. Kind of hard for the media to hype this up.

    “… Has there been anything other than speculation as to why he ended up in the river? …” Nothing I’ve read that is credible

    @Kylop

    It does make one speculate and I can come up with conspiracy theories by the truck load. LOL

    Some years back in Toronto there was a nurse, Susan Nelles, at Sick Kids’ Hospital, who was charged with multiple counts of murder because the police felt that a larger than reasonable number of kids on her ward were dying. She was convicted in the press, but when the case came to court, it turned out that they didn’t even have enough evidence to justify a trial.

    Then there was a fellow named Guy Paul Morin, who was charged with murdering a little girl who lived down the road from him. I distinctly remember my sister-in-law, who was a crown attorney, saying at dinner one night that the case against him was air tight. He was convicted. Well, it turns out he didn’t do it, and he was released eventually.

    I’ve given Canadian examples, because I remember them. It would be easy to give examples from the US.

    If the evidence against Tsarnaev is so strong, then there will be a conviction. But everyone deserves a fair trial, even those who seem to be obviously guilty.

    Just calling attention to the “Patriot Act”, and “Military Commissions Act” , and the right-wing effort to do away with multiple portions of the Bill of Rights.

    I’d imagine a ’toon depicting him riding a mower into heaven is in the works.

    Over 200 terrorists convicted in Federal Court 7 convicted in Military Commissions. Which one would you have him stand trial in?

    The Second Amendment is sacred and nothing should ever be done to jeopardize it.
