  But she made some people mad.   Politicians like Rep. Mike Rogers, a republican from Michigan, and Rep. Peter King, a Republican from New York, are already condemning Ms. Bowler's action.   They are saying it was her fault that Tsarnaev stopped talking when he got his rights.   They think she actually didn't protect American values but endangered them.

They want to take her down.  

Republicans and some Democrats hate the Sixth Amendment so much that they have blocked every nominee to the Federal Courts that the Democratic administration has proposed.   No matter that Obama has compromised the Sixth Amendment repeatedly.   That he has quietly taken the Sixth Amendment farther off the table than even George W. Bush.   They just don't trust the fact that he doesn't put the destruction of the Sixth Amendment in America's face.   To win the trust of the far, far right, he would have to talk more fear, more hatred.   He would have to talk trash.  

They want a leader who proposes to formally eliminate all citizens rights from the constitution altogether.   They want an anti-Sixth Amendment leader they can completely trust.

   During interrogation, Tsarnaev -- who was willing to kill and maim innocents because he hated America -- asked for his rights as an American citizen.   He mistakenly thought that the American way - that myth perpetuated by the story of Superman -- was still in play.

   What a fool.   No one reads Superman anymore.
