In response to:

Miranda

Actually, it was not so much what the surviving terrorist says that matters, it is what he did in full view of the public and of the police. A conviction should be gotten on that alone and even without the actual bombing. How is Miranda designed to protect someone who is demonstrably guilty? Where is the sense in that? Yet I worry that the Miranda issue will play a huge role in the prosecution of this waste of protoplasm. (Oh, sorry, didn't his mother or aunt or someone say he was an angel? My mistake.)

Suddenly, every cable news anchor, every pundit, every Sunday show guest, and every waiter in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia has become an expert on whether or not Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should be informed of his Miranda rights.

Let's assume, for the moment, that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has never watched a single episode of "Law & Order" in any of its manifestations and, thus, does not know he can ask for a lawyer - or refuse to answer any questions with a lawyer or without.

Just so I can catch up (I know you already know this), the whole Miranda thing stems from that...
