Terrorists Privacy Rights Protected By Governor

brightonbornApril 25, 2013

Oh yes..;lthe "mini me" to Obama...the Governor of MA. is refusing to release any information about the welfare benefits the Terrorist bomber" and his family recieived. They got everything Section 8 housing, college tuition, food stamps, EBT cardsi etc. The amounts of which are being withheld by the "lefty Democrat" Gov..
So many Dem. friends are switching parties as a result of the events of Marathon Monday.....so there may be light at the end of the very dark tunnel.
Remember an 8 year old boy was killed ...and the Gov. protects the man that killed him.

Their privacy rights SHOULD be protected by the governor...and also by fellow citizens - even by you.

Yes indeed, his rights need to be protected.

I'm happy to hear that the U.S. Attorney finally informed him of his Miranda rights and that he took them serious and is no longer answering any questions.

Hopefully anything he said or penned will not be admissible in court.

We need to forget everything he has said up to this point. He did it under duress and intimidation.

"the "mini me" to Obama"

..... don't be coy, say what you really mean.

This FAMILY received all those benefits originally under a Republican governor (and the prez in 2002?) ... come on now you remember :)

So one year after 9/11 a Muslim family was given asylum and handouts by republicans in charge.

And how much taxpayer money they received should be kept private? I don't care if it's republican or democrat. Why should this info be withheld?

Some of the most dangerous people in America are those who hate our Constitution, as do brightonborn and tobr24u.

They allow -- encourage, even -- politicians to ignore and flout the most important rights granted to persons in the Constitution. They have the potential to do far more fundamental and lasting damage to our society than could terrorists.

And you have a problem with this because...................................

Maybe you could tell us how much you receive in government benefits - because we all receive them, in one way or another.

Or is that none of our business?

mom, I think people are just angry. And do terrorists have the same rights as everyone? I don't know. We gave these people asylum, and look where the parents are now living. The youngest got a 25,000.00 scholarship to a prestigious private school. We met their every need with the same taxpayer money earned by those who will earn no longer, or never get a chance to.

A quote on CNN from a good Jihadist mom.

“If they are going to kill him. I don’t care. My oldest son is killed, so I don’t care. I don’t care if my youngest son is going to be killed today. I want the world to hear this. And, I don’t care if I am going to get killed too. And I will say Allahu Akbar!“

Exactly -- you selectively love certain parts of the Constitution, while hating outhers, such as the assurance of due process and prohibitions against warrantless searches and cruel or unusual punishment, etc.

This hatred for these crucial rights is very, very dangerous. We need to be on guard for those who hate our freedoms in this way. They are among us.

mrskjun attacks people who support the rights conferred to the people by the Constitution by calling them "silly", and believes it is a laughing matter.

This is the sort of indication for which to be on the lookout. People who understand and cherish the Constitution must be vigilant for this attitude, as it supports the degradation of our essential rights.

I understand that people are angry, but that doesn't justify taking his rights away. He's a citizen, not a terrorist, and he hasn't been convicted of anything yet, and he does have the same rights as everyone else.

We gave his parents asylum, and maybe things have changed back home since 2002 and it's safe to go back to whatever country they actually live in, or were afraid of.

The scholarship was for a bright boy, no one has clairvoyance, no one could see what would happen last week.

Plenty of people are not grateful for all the benefits America offers them - and most of the ungrateful wretches were born and raised in the US, as were their parents and grandparents. Most people who emigrate to the US are so happy and so grateful for everything.

We have to creat a category of those who do not deserve rights-those who do not agree with me or who do anything I dont like.

Why are so many conservatives afraid of others having rights? Apparently they do not believe in the American way.

Other people having rights seems to infringe on what they've come to believe is their inviolate American Way.

"Others" serve no purpose except to assail a comfort zone.

MsK, your characterization of Zabeida Tsarnaeva seems odd considering that she is still in denial that her sons were involved in the bombing. Given your stated background as leader of a bereavement group, I'm surprised you don't see the quoted statements as a mother grieving the actions and fate of her beloved sons. But the mother of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing remains resolute in her belief that her sons were not involved in the attack.

She told CNN's Nick Paton Walsh in Makhachkala, Dagestan, that she believes the tragedy that killed three people and injured dozens more was staged and that the bombing was fake.

Yes, even terrorists have rights. This young man has not been convicted of anything at this point. He has a right to a trial and if convicted he will be punished accordingly. Thank goodness we have such rights in our country, they protect us all.

"The federal government managed to hunt down, arrest, charge, try, convict and execute Timothy McVeigh without junking due process.
When Jared Lee Loughner attempted to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and shot dead a federal judge and a 9-year-old, grandstanding lawmakers did not demand that he be taken into military custody. Nor did they make that demand when James Holmes was arrested for killing 12 people and wounding 70 others at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater.
But now Senator Lindsey Graham is calling for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to be classified as an enemy combatant and “held and questioned under the law of war,” without a lawyer."

"The real difference is that Mr. Tsarnaev is a Muslim, and the United States has since the 9/11 terrorist attacks constructed a separate and profoundly unequal system of detention and punishment that essentially applies only to Muslims."

"Since they are muslims, kitchenwitch, a lot of people would probably still call them terrorists."

Maybe "a lot of people would." I think, though, you just attach the appropriate adjective, purely for descriptive purposes: "senior citizen terrorists," "Polish terrorists." etc. Probably if one wants to attach some particular significance to the purpose of the terrorists, one would say: "Catholic terrorists," or "Islamic terrorists."

www.thefreedictionary.com/terrorist: "One that engages in acts or an act of terrorism. adj. Of or relating to terrorism. ter ror·is tic adj. terrorist [ˈtɛrərɪst]. n. (Government, Politics & Diplomacy) ..."

I think choice of weapon, ethnicity, gender, age, etc. is totally equal opportunity.

Off topic ...but I was wondering why the younger brother became a citizen on Sept. 11 last year. The other brother could not because he had a criminal record for abuse, but why that date? Did becoming a citizen fit into the bombing plan?

Many people seem ok with trashing inconvenient amendments to the constitution, but hold dearly to the 2nd.

What's up with that? It's comical. And predictable.

He would have had no choice in the date he became a citizen.

I suspect that date was picked, by the Citizenship and Immigration Office, on purpose - very symbolic. A good day to say to the rest of the world that people still want to become citizens of this country even if some of "you" hate us.

Thanks, Duluth, for taking the time to copy that for me. Nice summary you found there; what site is that?

Elly said: "Many people seem ok with trashing inconvenient amendments to the constitution, but hold dearly to the 2nd."

I should have been more specific, since clarification & specificity was what I was asking re Elly's statement. I mean who are the "many" who are okay with trashing amendments they find inconvenient, but "cling dearly" to the 2nd?

Or is this a general inconsequential statement just flung out there, like: "Many people seem okay with trashing inconvenient traffic laws, but cling dearly to the one about stop signs."

If that's all it is, never mind, Elly. I thought maybe you were making a point there.
