he had and used weapons of mass destruction.
not making a President Bush joke.
That is what he is charged with.
so who gets charged in the murder of the MIT police officer ? is the State of Mass also going to file capitol murder charges too...I realize he can only be executed once...BUT if he pleas out a deal I want the terms to be served consecutively...
There is the exception but the forces are sort of against this now. The exception was created for the "excited utterance" of a criminal....where he admits to some major incident or device before the rights are read. It's the so-called "public safety exception". However, with the Governor of MA, the head of the state police, the Mayor of Boston, and the Boston Police Commissioner all saying last Fri, "Boston is safe again"...what's the emergency. President Obama and Attny General Holder think they're going to get away with this but they may get handed their heads by the Supremes and the lad will then walk out the door.
If 2-3 days after he was captured there still exists an emergency, what's to say that won't be true of every arrest? The public emergency exception is not in any law but rather a Supreme Ct refinement of Miranda. Thus, they're making it up as they go and that's always risky.
