The Center for Constitutional Rights headlined "CCR Condemns Miranda Exception in Boston Marathon Suspect Case," saying:
"The Miranda warnings were put in place because police officers were beating and torturing 'confessions' out of people who hadn't even been formally accused of a crime."
"We cannot afford to repeat our mistakes. If officials require suspects to incriminate themselves, they are making fair trials and due process merely option and not a requirement. To venture down that road again will make law enforcement accountable to no one."
"Like Obama's expanded killing program and his perpetuation of indefinite detention without trial at Guantanamo, this is yet another erosion of the Constitution to lay directly at the President's feet."
"Obama's Justice Department unilaterally expanded the 'public safety exception' to Miranda in 2010 beyond anything the Supreme Court ever authorized."
"Each time the administration use this exception, it stretches wider and longer. However horrific the crime, continuing to erode constitutional rights invites continued abuse by law enforcement, and walks us down a dangerous path that becomes nearly impossible to reverse."
Media scoundrels straightaway convicted both brothers. They did so in the court of public opinion. Misreporting continues. FAIR's Peter Hart calls it a "rush to misjudgment," saying:
"We've seen reporting and commentary that talked about the Muslim or jihadist character of the bombs themselves: pressure cookers, ball bearings or nails used."
"These are things that are not unique to al-Qaeda or al-Qaeda-inspired terror attacks."
