Skip to comments.Report: Federal Judge Compromised Investigation By Prematurely Mirandizing Tsarnaev
Posted on 04/25/2013 5:50:27 AM PDT by servo1969
Thanks to the "Public Safety Exception" to Miranda (which was created in 1980), the government is not forced to choose between treating a suspect as an enemy combatant or immediately allowing said suspect to hide behind an attorney and the right to remain silent. In extraordinary circumstances, when a suspect is believed to be part of a broader conspiracy that might result in the loss of innocent life, authorities have 48 hours to question the suspect before mirandizing him.
Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the man suspected of being a co-conspirator in the Boston Marathon bombings, was mirandized after only 16 hours of questioning. According to a Fox News, FBI officials were "stunned" when federal District Court Judge Marianne Bowler arrived at the hospital and read Tsnarnaev his rights. Sources told Fox News that this premature action might have hurt the investigation.
Apparently, prior to Judge Bowler reading him his rights, Tsarnaev was cooperating with investigators. The arrival of public defenders and the Justice Department, though, compromised the interrogation and now the belief is that "valuable intelligence may have been sacrificed as a result."

She’s a braindead liberal first and a judge second.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Holder sent in his shock troops.
How does he qualify for a public defender? He been living the life of the rich and famous. Attending some of the most expensive schools in the nation, fancy cars, party, party, party.
So the Judge just shows up at the hospital?? Who sent her or was she “self radicalized?” We need an investigation within the investigation. The FBI should be checking her out, as well.
IMHO it's a case of, "Quick, quick! We've got to shut him up."
Of course the interesting question is WHY?
no doubt she has a homosexual lover on one side and one from AlQaida on the other.
Said it on the other thread, I’ll just repeat myself.
“I’ll just say one thing.
Communists in our top tier government ARE really pushing hard for CW II.”
IF people don’t feel the government can protect them, they WILL meter out their own justice.
Ominous dark clouds ahead.
So the White Hut and al Qaeda reached out and
SELECTED a judge.
How special is that?
Ping to another Holder outrage!!
Obama and Holder sent that judge from the DOJ.
Please help spread the word!
One Word Sabotage
Transcript of bedside hearing:
Why did they let this bitch in? Funny how Obama ignores seperation of powers for (non-)recess appointments and amnesty, but respects it for compromising terrorism investigations.
How did they fit all of these people in the romm LOL.
Jennifer Daskal she is the ring leader
The current Justice Department employees who previously represented Guantánamo detainees or terrorism suspects are:
Tony West, the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division.
Jonathan Cedarbaum, of the Office of Legal Counsel.
Eric Columbus, senior counsel in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General.
Karl Thompson, of the Office of Legal Counsel.
Joseph Guerra, Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General.
Tali Farhadian, an official in the Office of the Attorney General.
Beth Brinkmann, Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Civil Division
Pray for America to Wake Up
The Wake Up won’t come out of any sudden moral awakening or political epiphany; it will be in the form a calamity. Most likely an economic collapse. But other possibilities abound.
Fingers start pointing in embarrassing directions when a 19 yr old kid who knows too much keeps talking.
A Magistrate judge is NOT an Article III judge.
This is unConstitutional as well as obstruction of justice.
“Communists in our top tier government ARE really pushing hard for CW II.”
I agree they keep pushing and pushing hoping Real Americans will be the first to fire back. They know we have a greater respect for the law than the left. Eventually the left will have to fire the first shot and I think most of us can site numerous occasions where they already have and we did not respond. Time will come when we must respond. I think we at at that time.
Is this traitor to the American people judge protected from telling us who sent her?
If not, then what agency must tell us they sent her?
We must know the source before they bury it like they have done with the 212.3B Saudi rag head they first arrested.
I just think peaceful addressing our grievances only accomplish so much. More and more people wake up to an ever more tyrannical government, then one day they will rebel.
Her picture here:
Can you explain more please? Would be good reading for those of us who do not know why this matters. Thanks.
The judge is a traitorous subhuman who hates America. Just who sent her to the hospital to read this traitor his “rights”? Isn’t her action a bit odd? Is their no end to what these communists running this administration will go? Hopefully, they will ALL be brought to justice.
wonderful that Obama instructed Eric Holder to cut off the intelligence gathering. Obama is protected again by his orders.
Ya know, I’m getting a little tired of this Mirandizing debate.
As an American citizen, I KNOW what my rights are. They don’t have to be read to me.
Any citizen who whines about not being read his bed-time story - Miranda - deserves whatever comes their way.
You get arrested, you keep your mouth shut until you have legal counsel. Period.
Ooooooo... a judge.
Meet the Boston bombing suspect’s defense team
Article on Bomber’s ‘All Star Defense Team’
Thanks Obama....(eye roll)
Why does the article refer to her as District Court when she is Magistrate?
IIRC they aren’t the same thing.
I think it is better to Mirandize than to risk exclusion of his testimony later, if this was challenged.
Boston Marathon, where two bombs went off killing three people and wounding 264, included preparation for such an emergency, a top Massachusetts public safety official said on Wednesday.
“We spend months planning for the marathon. We did a tabletop exercise the week before that included a bombing scenario in it,” Kurt Schwartz, the state’s undersecretary for homeland security, told a panel at Harvard University.
There are different types of exercises that can be used to evaluate program plans, procedures and capabilities.
Walkthroughs, workshops or orientation seminars
Tabletop exercises are discussion-based sessions where team members meet in an informal, classroom setting to discuss their roles during an emergency and their responses to a particular emergency situation. A facilitator guides participants through a discussion of one or more scenarios. The duration of a tabletop exercise depends on the audience, the topic being exercised and the exercise objectives. Many tabletop exercises can be conducted in a few hours, so they are cost-effective tools to validate plans and capabilities.
Communications-Specific Tabletop Exercise Methodology
Nothing that he said under the safety rule could be used anyway. It is strictly used for determining other threats..the way I understand it. They say they have plenty to convict him but with this bunch of left wing hacks at DOJ...it is doubtful.
Just who will do that? There is nobody who is going to step up. These Communists will continue to shred the Constitution and nobody will stop them.
Hahaha...great signs brother.....if only people would open their eyes.
‘compromised investigations’ ?
Just an excuse for the ‘investigators’.
The truth is that since he was technically an American Citizen, that NOT MIRANDIZING him would set a precedent. With this administration, that is not a good idea.
This ‘judge’ may have been doing more to protect OUR rights, than Tsarnaev’s.
That’s her pictured in the center standing under the plaque
Is it normal for judges to personally deliver Miranda rights and bring public defenders with them?
You say that like that would be a bad thing.
My other thought is this.... Well, liberal dumb-ass Boston Massachusetts, you will now see liberal political correctness & fawning & pandering to muzzies played out to its' maximum extreme. Here you have a terrorist muzlim bomber who's killed 3 people & maimed & injured over 170 others, and the politically correct liberal Gestapo will do everything possible to protect this muzlim terrorist bastard with full rights & taxpayer money. Way to go, you liberal retards!!!
U.S.-UAE Judicial Exchange
March 8-10, 2011
The Consulate General, in association with the U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office, sponsored 3 U.S. federal judges for a series of workshops in the UAE. Judge Ronald Lew of the Central District of California, Judge Joanna Seybert of the Eastern District of New York, and Marianne Bowler of the District of Massachusetts. During their time in the UAE, the judges helped conduct a legal seminar on intellectual property rights at the UAE Institute of Training and Judicial Studies in Sharjah.
The judges also visited the DIFC Courts and then participated in a judicial roundtable with the Dubai Courts, where they were joined by Consul General Justin Siberell. The roundtable consisted of a mutually-rewarding exchange of judicial best practices and information about the respective legal systems of both nations. The U.S. judges were particularly impressed by Dubai Courts innovative use of technology and world-renowned case management system.
Thank you penelopesire for the ping. Not sure if I feel more like crying or laughing. So out of control. I have much to read.
Alan Dershowitz agrees...
Dershowitz insisted that authorities would come to regret not reading Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, partly because there was never any basis for the public safety exception, but, more significantly, because they may have blown their chances of getting a death penalty conviction. Why? Because theyll need to be terrorist intentions, but the information they get may not be admissible in court.
This whole thing is confusing, to say the least.
This was a ticking clock example.
This was probably an antideathpenalty judge who did not want the defendant giving away negotiating points.
Never mind rules of evidence would ultimatly apply.
Perhaps now the judge should recuse as being biased. Both the appointed magistrate (not for life) and/or supervising judge (life appointment)
“A Magistrate judge is NOT an Article III judge. This is unConstitutional as well as an obstruction of justice.”
God save our country.
