I’m not a shrinking violet when it comes to dealing with terrorists. That said, I understand that we have a Constitution, and it needs to be followed and protected. We aren’t doing that.
I have problems with how we’re handling the surviving Boston Marathon terrorist. He’s not getting Mirandized because of a potential “threat to the public.” Problem is, one can argue the justification behind that decision doesn’t match the case that sets the precedent for not mirandizing suspects. Further, if one argues it does, one can’t argue how arrested drug or gun dealers’ stash isn’t a continued threat to public safety, as well as anyone involved in a criminal enterprise. It’s a very slippery and scary slope.
