3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
are the rights granted to you on the spot?
do they not apply if not read to you?
Obama is gonna torture him down at Gitmo

he shouldve been granted a cack meat sammich.
Make him watch UVA game film. Cruel but effective.
Are you volunteering?
no, VAHorn is.
Before or after we waterboard him? I need the specifics.
Sorry OP, I have to add to that. He is a US Citizen. You don't get to pick and choose which rights are afforded to select citizens; the US Constitution (and subsequent constitutional laws) is not an À la carte menu.

yes is my answer also but wondered what others thought about miranda rights to terrorist...
edit: btw, i've gone back and forth with my yes answer.

No. We were getting excellent info from him and as soon as he got them he shut up... there should be exceptions in the rule because his silence is a threat to society.
Sometimes the constitution overrules common sense. In this case the forefathers of this nation had no way of foreseeing this kind of enemy of the state
My son's message to Obama, Clemson, and Georgia
He "had" the rights all along. Just because the Miranda rights were read doesn't mean he didn't have them before.
Can't they be withheld?
F' that. I had rather a 1,000 bombs go off than continue to disregard a citizen's rights. By throwing our morals away, he (terrorists) wins. There is ample evidence to convict him (I think). This is not a hard question if you have principles (mine are to the Constitution and the individual rights and liberties it guarantees). I don't know what the rule is about this, but...
what if they questioned him w/o reading him his rights in order to get intel, but then all info gathered from that would be inadmissible in court. You know you are in essence throwing some evidence away, but you keep enough (don't ask about) on the table to convict him later (after you have read him his rights). I don't know if that is possible, but that is the only way around this dilemma that doesn't worry me.
over/under on his life expectancy if he were not convicted? he screwed either way.. might as well watch him squirm a bit first.
I believe they (cops) had the right to NOT give them to him while he was still a threat to others. They didn't know if there were more explosives anywhere else, so they didn't have to give them to him. I find no problem with that.
3 time POTW
GTFO here with that. Really ... you'd rather see more killings of 8 yr olds than take a way a terrorist's rights? Brilliant.
If I have to listen to the damn libs tell me that two men can get married because, well, by god "love is love," then I'm going to tell you that "a terrorist is a damn terrorist" and all rights afforded you via the constitution are null and void. Fuck. Him.
Now, if he's not a terrorist and we define his acts as those of a looney tune killer, then carry on with due process and such, and rights are rights. But don't call what he did terrorism and then tell him he has the same rights as a guy who got pissed off in a bar fight and stabbed somebody.
We should waterboard this guy, like ... a bunch ... then when we've squeezed every ounce of credible info out of him, we should drop him off naked in Southie or right outside Fenway as they're letting out from Sox-Yankees game.
Rewrite the law if we need to.
So I'm clear: Fuck. Him.
Do not misunderstand me, I hope the little SOB dies a painful death either at the hands of inmates (damn, did I forget to lock the cell of that guy threatening to kill you) or via a messy execution or ...
I don't think his trial should last more than a week, but we know that is a pipe dream. I wish we could get what info we could out of him and then let him find out whether or not those virgins are waiting on him (assuming conviction in a fair trial - hard to find with our current media coverage).
