He will be all lawyered up. We will not get the truth from him.
Because he knows others like him...they will get vital information from him...and you can bet since taken alive those who have helped him are crapping their pants!
no. we interrogate captured terrorists for useful intelligence before we kill them. What’s funny about that?
9000 police officers paralyze a city for almost 24 hours and the case is broken by an observant private citizen. If not for this lady these guys would be chasing their tails until this punk was discovered having bled to death in the boat. The islamists are watching and learning. They’ve seen what carnage and chaos two individuals can cause in an American city. And they will be back.
You’re looking at the big picture. There’s a whole lot wrong with it, as you listed.
But the people in the streets just wanted success in the narrow quest to take this terrorist off of the streets of Boston. Their lives were turned upside down, they were trapped inside their homes, in fear, the economy was paralyzed, and they wanted justice for the bombing victims.
Big picture thinkers they’re NOT.
I think the DC area sniper duo could be a similar pattern of older and younger.
Reverse terrorism...love it!
I'm surprised he was. I don't think this will go well for Obama. But he will probably find a way to spin the arrest of this Caucasian to his advantage.
Speaking of far, how far did the total municipal lockdown extend?
I hope the Russians or Isreal embarrass the ship out of Bambi saying We told you! Shows how serious you are at dealing with terrorists.
I must be thinking in Texan where we would have put one between the eyes and then went about our day.
It was the younger brother who got citizenship, not the older brother that travelled to Russia, posted jihad crap and was interviewed by the FBI.
OK, now that we know he was hiding in a shed or a boat all day, what was with all of the different shootouts?
How come nobody was hit?
Damn right. FBI and DHS can be watching international flights closely... [Oh...never mind]
Oops, that's the key word, Islamic. Protected class.
I’d rather he spend 23 hours a day with a giantic gangbanger who’s sister lost a leg in the bombing.
State Media is ignoring the Achmed connection so far....but this can only go so far, as interviews with their father in Chechnya keep allowing "with the will of Allah" to slip through their filters.
THAT is what will sink 0bama.
Now we know why we have an ammo shortage.
about 10 miles
I wonder if there will be a Watertown baby boom in 9 months?
Here’s the bad news, which Free Republic should pick up on: He will not receive the death penalty. Massachusetts does not have the death penalty. The reason Timothy McVeigh was tried in federal court and received the death penalty was that 8 of his 168 victims were federal officials. Oklahoma never filed capital (murder) charges against McVeigh, preferring to rely upon the federal death penalty and avoid the cost of a trial.
This perp is a US citizen, and will simply be tried for murder in a Massachusetts state court and sentenced to life in prison. End of story.
Sorry for putting out this bad news, but them’s the facts.
Problem is he is a US citizen
....”He’ll be lawyered up and clammed up within a few hours...if not minutes....”
As I see it....No different really then most criminals with connections can do....and they do.
But there’s a host of things the police can do to get information from him...and simply deny it later...who would know?
The idea is to get the ball rolling on who else was involved..and you can bet they will enlarge this investigation.
Keep in mind, already three other students have been taken in..and this just by association.
Neither of these two were very smart......they’ll talk with little trouble I think. Our guys want the big boys.
I think so!
Not from me though...no way would I bring kids into this mess.
...”his lawyer was probably with him in back of the ambulance”.....
That’s a stretch....the police can stall off attorneys for various reasons...especially since he is injured pretty badly. He’ll talk....and that’s what is needed.
Seriously? A murderous, terrorist POS was captured and you don't understand why the crowd is cheering?
I answered the question in my earlier post about why he will be treated differently than McVeigh. McVeigh was convicted of capital murder by the feds, sentenced to death by the feds, and executed by the feds because 8 of his victims were federal officials. This perp killed no federal officials, hence no federal crime.
It will be very interesting to see if the feds treat this as an act of war. That’s the only way he will be executed, since otherwise he’ll be tried in a Massachusetts state court and sentenced to life in prison (MA has no state death penalty).
Broke out the GOOD herb...getting a HIGH HIGH on!!!
...so what college will he teach at in 10 years?
It appears the boat was searched earlier, don’t know about the shed but would guess it was. But later in the day/evening the home/boat owner noticed blood on the ground leading to the boat and blood on the boat cover, and alerted police. The belief is that the guy was hiding nearby and was not in the boat or shed earler, but after they were searched he hid there.
Don’t know what you mean by various shootouts throughout the day. I’m not aware of that.
Shooting did break out when they realized the guy was in the boat. Then the shooting was stopped and they set up a perimeter and proceeded to slowly, methodically, check out the situation. I don’t know the details of the shooting that happened when they discovered him. But any shooting by police at that scene was deliberately stopped after the initial shots. Don’t know whether the terrorist was shooting at any point or not.
Do know the terrorist is not in very good shape, because he was wounded or injured last night when his brother was killed, and has lost quite a bit of blood.
Joe...I wondered what Mass. law was on the death penalty...even so this guy will spill his guts...and I don’t buy what others are saying that he’ll be lawyered up before they can extract information....there are other ways to work this and you can bet they will work it. He’ll talk...
I suspect too, even if he gets life in prison....I doubt he’ll last long...either way he’s pretty much done with life on the outside.
...nah, too many gay marriages up there...
To think that somebody donated blood that’s probably going to be used on this guy.
Hopefully it keeps him alive long enough for a thorough interrogation, trial and execution.
Complete with waterboarding.
I'd willingly volunteer to administer for days on end if necessary.
LOL Shep on Fox whining about why the bastard wasn’t given Miranda rights!! Sheeesh!
Good job Massachusetts..I am so happy for you all.
Sigh, I know. Tomorrow the police with be GOVERNMENT THUGS again. Although I will not be among those who think that.
I’m no lawyer; however, just because someone did not shoot a federal employee doesn’t mean he didn’t commit acts of terrorism. Aren’t there statutes against terrorist activities that have been used to prosecute, and do some of them not carry the possibility of the federal death penalty?
If you start from that premise - and I’m just asking - he could be threatened with a federal death penalty unless he sings. If he sings adequately, the death penalty threat could be withdrawn in favor of life in prison.
He will be tried in federal court for terrorism charges.
A murderous, terrorist POS should have never been a US Citizen or even in this country as a matter of speaking.
