The Premature Mirandizing of a Terrorist

Dzhokhar_transcript_pulloutThe last showing of The Longest Day ended at the Paramount Theater before midnight. After the lights had dimmed and the patrons filed out, their minds still filled with the sights and sounds of soldiers fighting and dying at Normandy, the eighteen-year-old girl who had stood behind the concessions counter handing them popcorn and sodas went home.

It was late at night when she began walking home from the bus stop, but crime rates in Phoenix, Arizona were only beginning the upward rise that would take hold in the seventies.

In 1963, the year that Lois Ann Jameson was walking home, there had been 222 rapes. Ten years later, that number would stand at 637. Today there are over 2,000 rapes a year in Phoenix; ten times as many. But one of those rapes would be hers. And it would lead to a new standard of protection for murderers and rapists.

Ernesto Miranda wasn’t famous yet. The days when he would be selling autographed Miranda warning cards were still ahead of him. For now he was only another son of Mexican immigrants, a tattooed felon working temporary jobs and a rapist on the prowl.

Miranda abducted the girl, drove her out to the desert and raped her. He was arrested, questioned and confessed to the crime. The rest should have been straightforward except that no one had told him that he was entitled to a lawyer. The head of the Phoenix office of the ACLU stepped in and the Miranda warning was born.

Miranda v. Arizona was part of a string of decisions by the Warren Court that had begun the year of Lois Ann Jameson’s rape. The decisions invented rights which not only obligated taxpayers to provide accused criminals with lawyers, but also made it impossible to question a suspect without his lawyer.

In the case of Lois Ann’s rapist, Justice Earl Warren, who proved to be a bigger threat to the Constitution than King George III, went beyond inventing the right to a government lawyer, to invent the rapist’s right to be told of a right to a government lawyer.

Warren inverted the Fifth Amendment to claim that the confession of a criminal who had not been told that he did not have to incriminate himself was a violation of the ban on self-incrimination. And he held that it should be assumed that all criminals did not know that they did not have to confess.

Fifty years after a concession stand girl was raped by a career criminal in the desert, terrorist bombs went off at the Boston Marathon. One of the perpetrators, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, lay in his hospital room telling investigators bits and pieces about the attack.

Dzhokhar’s older brother and mother had been on a terrorist watch list, the two brothers had reportedly been planning a second wave of attacks in New York City and the FBI had not ruled out the possibility of a third bomber due to the difficulty involved in detonating the bombs without a clear line of sight.

Even though Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was in no shape for a court appearance and investigators still wanted to continue questioning him under the public safety exemption of New York v. Quarles, a Federal judge barged into the hospital room to present the charges against him and read him his rights.

There was no urgent need for a US attorney and a federal judge to rouse a terrorist listed in severe condition and read him rights. Judge Marianne Bowler’s appearance in the hospital was a calculated attempt at aborting the investigation. The only reason she gave for her actions was the intense television coverage of the capture. Bowler, a Clinton appointee, had some experience in the Muslim world and no explanation except that the case needed to move forward because it was on television.

The premature Mirandizing of terrorists had become a routine practice under Attorney General Eric Holder. The Christmas Day bomber was interrogated for less than an hour before being read his Miranda rights. Like Dzhokhar, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was read his rights in the hospital while he was still receiving treatment.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had warned that other terrorist attacks might be on the way before being read his rights. Holder took responsibility for the decision, even though Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair stated that it was a mistake. A few months later, Blair was gone and Holder remained.

That year Faisal Shahzad attempted to detonate a car bomb in Times Square; an attack that the Tsarnaev brothers reportedly attempted to finish. Once again, Holder made the decision to Mirandize him. Responding to the criticism, Holder promised to seek a new exception to Miranda from Congress, even though he had failed to make full use of the public safety exception already in place.

Three years later, the Boston bombings show that nothing has changed. Holder has tripled down on Miranda even in the face of a major terrorist plot. And Holder’s policy is that of an entire administration which treats terrorism as a crime and grants it the same liberal protections that criminals receive.

Obama could not completely dismantle the law enforcement infrastructure of the War on Terror, but he did his best. The enemy combatant became the unprivileged belligerent. The Bush administration’s use of “enemy combatant” had clearly defined terrorists as members of enemy forces while the Obama administration’s substitution of “unprivileged belligerent” hid their status and nature in vagueness.

Obama did his best to prevent Islamic terrorists from even being labeled “unprivileged belligerents.” Obama and Holder tried to move the trial of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to a civilian court. Only loud protests by New Yorkers forced a change in their plans. When Obama finally authorized the SEALs to go after Osama bin Laden, he did so hoping to capture him and exploit the political boost to take down Guantanamo Bay and the use of military courts against Al Qaeda terrorists.

The SEALs preempted Obama’s effort to save Osama from the military court system, but he did succeed in trying Sulaiman Abu Ghaith in the civilian court system. Abu Gaith was Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law who had served as a spokesman for Al Qaeda and after September 11 had threatened the United States, saying, “The planes will not stop.”

Given the choice between national security and the liberal virtue of giving criminals more rights than their victims, Obama chose the latter over the former. The difference between criminals and terrorists is that a failure to get a confession from a criminal leads to a lost conviction, but a failure to extract intelligence from a terrorist can mean the deaths of hundreds or even thousands.

When the ACLU and the weight of liberal opinion stood behind Lois Ann Jameson’s rapist, they were endangering countless women. The tenfold increase in rapes was largely attributable to the left’s legal and social programs. Now when they stand behind monsters like Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, they are opening the door to the Muslim rape of America, to massive acts of terror that could have been stopped and countless dead who could have been saved.

The liberal campaign for murderers and rapists covered their hands in the blood of innocents, but their campaign for terrorists will cover it in the blood of a nation.

    greenfield doesnt even mention in this article that the younger brother is a US citizen, info fail. well, US citizens are guaranteed the rights afforded by the constitution, period. neo-con statists are violating the constitution as much as the leftist authoritarians IMO. the partisanship in this article is sophomoric and misleading of the truth that Obama has been basically following the same militaristic intervention that has been applied in the ME for decades.

    • WildJew

      Shouldn't the younger brother been stripped of his citizenship? Didn't he violate his oath of allegiance to the United States?

      "I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the armed forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."

      You have no idea what you are talking about. The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952;

        Was this an act of treason, as far as we know? Was it an act against the state?

          It was an act of Jihad. A Jihad that started in the 1700's during the first Barbary War.

    • michael nephew

      Yes you are correct in stating that the younger terrorist ,oh excuse me,younger brother is a U.S. citizen. The point you fail to grasp is when he coMmited a terrorist act,he gave up that freedom. He became just another terrorist scum. I do not care is he is muslim,christian,jewish,or buddhist,commiting an act such as the one he was involved in,makes him one thing,and that is a TERRORIST !

    When there are enough to impeach Mr Holder? and the president? Are Americans willing to reject their destructive behavior?
    Some times I ask myself if I am the only one who cares so deeply. What are our constitutional resources to stop fraud and betrayal of this administration? Do we have how to stop this increasing madness against our nation? We are all exposed to constant fraud and reality sinks in lie after lie. It seems that we the people who love this extraordinary country have reach our patience limit. And the question is: are we still in time?
    Thank you Daniel.

      The real question is, why isnt the opposition party screaming about all of these things at the top of their lungs on a daily basis?

          Rand Paul was against the use of drones..until he was for using them on US citizens.

          • reader

            You should start paying attention to what people really say, not what Chris Matthews claims that they say. Rand Paul's example specifically described the suspect US citizen sitting in a coffee shop working on his or her refreshments. Now is the time to concentrate, Jim. Was Tsarbayev sitting in a coffee shop while being mirandized, Jim? Report back when you solve this puzzle.

          • Jim_C

            Politicians sometimes don't express things the way they mean to: I'll grant that. But can you imagine if the same words had come out of a democrat's mouth? You guys would be having a field day. Rand Paul clearly contradicted himself–maybe unintentionally–then backtracked to explain when the base got upset. He has done the same on civil rights. He wants to be seen as a libertarian on one hand and a populist conservative on the other. Not sure it's working for him.

    • fiddler

      we need to scrutinize the media who has lost objectivity.

    • Leften Wright

      Let's think about this – Benghazi: our president refused to save our ambassador and three other Americans. The Middle East: three of our former allies have become radical Islamic states: Tunisia, Libya, Egypt. And now it turns out that the Syrian rebels are islamic jihadists. The Boston bombers and other terrorists get Mirandized to keep us from getting information from them. Osama bin Laden gets shot to death before he can be questioned. And we're concerned about the one percent. Get my book before the Thought Police banish it from Amazon — The Handbook for Closet Conservatives. It may be hilarious to some people, but not to the lefties.

    It seems…..even after living through the past couple of decades, to still believe Islam is the religion of peace is to be as credulous as believing North Korea is a democracy run by the people.

    The modern day Thugee is islam……look up Thugee on the net…Thugee was a type of islam type of cult practised by some hindus…which the sensible British wiped out and off the face of this earth….super good for Great Britain….. Idiotic islam has to be dealt with the same way that idiotic thugee was dealt with. Till the last person practicing dirty dirty islam is wiped off the face of this earth we will have no peace. Dirty islam was started by a perverted thug and pedophilic mass murderer and slave owner and mentally sick man who was so sick he scared the stupid arabs that lived in the desert and this unfortunate coward legacy is still the paramount problem on planet EARTH. We have to deal with islam the same way we have dealt with dirty thugee and small pox.
    The dirty cult of islam has been naively misclassified as a religion by educated people ( this time the British screwed up) who could not justifiably read the gutter language that is arabic. Dirty arabic has no word for a pedophile or a child-molester. Dirty islam and dirty filthy arabic is the number one enemy of peace and progress on this planet. We have to get rid of dirty islam just as we got rid of thugee…with guts to say the right things and with heavy modern day weaponry .

    islam is a drag on the planet.
    2 billion less will be a good thing for the planet and science and the fine arts.
    life will thrive post islam.
    no one'll miss muslims and their funny till terrifying constant freak-show cult called islam ?
    any answers ?
    Crocodile tears are an art form too…..
    Crocodile tears are an art-form too…..
    Crocodile tears are an art-form too…..
    Earth does not need an idiotic and chaotic and pedophilic and totally retrograde cult that is totally mislabeled as a religion by people who could not read stupid filthy uncouth arabic. Gutter language . Stupid dirty arabic and islam have no words for a pedophile or a child-molester. The arabs are not fit enough to be called human. As cruel and useless as smallpox…..The time is right to do what has to be done. NOW!!

    Things have to start moving in this direction. This is an order from The Man.

      Gen. James Napier had these to say to Indians who practiced Sati which was the custom of burning alive of widows on a funeral pyre of her husband.
      "Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs."
      What the West needs to do is close down all mosques that the jihadist attend and hang the imam(s) of the mosques.

  • dr.music

    muslims can be told anything and they have to just believe it …they have to. It's the muslim scene. Muslims cannot question older muslims or any muslm talking to him about the fictitious and completely fabricated greatness of muslims or the fabricated greatness of this crap called islam. As a muslim you just can't think this pure crap called islam is pure crap. Muslims are totally screwed….no wonder they want to kill themselves…..a muslim is a wretched being who is not allowed to be an indivisualistic human in a wretched cult with no real escape…death is better for a muslim…this is a fact !!! Ignorance is happiness is their reality but for a mozzy factually ignorance is misery….he cannot by this pure crap called islam admit the to the obvious latter he just has to believe the former. It's deadly. A case study in mass madness. Fantastic….whatever…..this pure crap called islam shouldn't be around. Period. Why is this pure crap called islam allowed in a democratic environment? This pure crap called islam should be banned outright and the sooner the better. Democracy has to get more pro active. This pure crap called islam should be taken to court everyday some way or the other. This pure crap called islam will not be tolerated by any human rights court. No chance.
    if saudi arabia did not exist suddenly ………… if islamic hotspots were suddenly ………. if suddenly mosques became dangerous place to be in ……………. suddenly it should be dangerous to be muslim……. suddenly co-ran burning should come into fashion……. all this lovely wishfullll thinking……….:)
    They've done Afghanistan…Indonesia….Malaysia…trying Burma …trying India….trying America….trying Europe…why not….islam has massacred more humans than most pan-endemics and natural causes put together. islam is the most hostile and murderous of all threats to us humans. In just 1400 years islam has wiped out more cultures and peoples than any other virus or bacteria or non-muslim humans. islam is the slaughter champion of the world. This slaughter by islam is still going on non-stop. This slaughter will slaughter us too. We are only waiting for it to happen and islam is laughing at us. islam will rule the world….Dystopia is coming for our children.
    you know saudi arabia wasn't muslim till the muslims came and occupied it by force…this islam crap should be ejected from wherever it is on the planet before it's too late….the planet is begging us to.

No. Education? No. National media? No. Then – maybe, citizens themselves? To judge from the last two elections, it's the same NO again… Here in Russia I read FPM articles along with the parallel Google ads with happy multi-colored faces repeating the U.S. Green card invitations "Come to us!"

    a mad man is actually an ape….if you aren't a normal human mentally you have to be an ape. Therefore since mohammad was mad and apeish all normal humans born into this mad man's cult just have to ape the first muslim ape a.k.a. mohammad the violent hallucinator and mental screw-up. islam is very bad for normal humans. period. understood ???

      • Steeloak

        In the Nuremberg sense, of course "just following orders" is no defense. Of course I agree.

        My point however is that Holder is not an independent agent – no one in the Obama Admin. so much as wipes their own behind without direct orders from the boss. If Holder is doing something distasteful it is because he has been ordered to do so.

        If he was a man of integrity he would resign if he felt he was doing wrong. However, him being an "ends justify the means" sort of guy, it would be unreasonable to expect moral behaviour from him.

        • Looking4Sanity

    Holder and Obama are in co hut with the devil.and this once great country is running amok.Thank you Mr. Greenfield for explaining the Miranda rights. I never liked the name Miranda but now that I know what it stands for I hate it.This is in itself very perverse to associate the name of a criminal to the word Rights. The joke here is on the victim. How very sad. I do not think Obama and holder are naive but very cynical individuals with no compassion, no sense of honor and no love for their country. Yesterday I watched the dinner for the press and I was totally disgusted by the lack of class coming from Obama. Actually I think for the first time when joknig about himself he was telling the truth. I have no idea he if was aware of it and if he was aware of it he certainly has a very sick mind.
    Great article Mr. Greenfield.

    I agree with everything the article said, but there is one point he shoud have addressed to give his article more cred. That is the difference between a citizen and a non-citizen.

    The Freedom Center's writings about Islam are considered "offensive to Islam;" Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Mark Steyn and other writers and speakers are constant targets by Islamists because of their "offenses" against Islam; a highly decorated and competent Army officer was fired, given a directed adverse OER and was pulled from a battalion command list for leading a class about understanding the Islamist threat. What do all these, and other, cases have in common? They use the Islamists' own words to condemn them. By Mirandizing suspects (and perpetrators), the Administration is limiting the damage to the Islamist cause that would come from the mouths of those under investigation/interrogation. It has nothing to do with their rights, but all to do with trying to protect Islam from revelations of the truth about it.

    Terrorists should not have the right to Miranda, if the terror is definitely proven . It is an act of war against our country, and should be treated as enemy combatant regardless of citizenship. How about closing not only our borders, but immigration from enemy countries. Let us all have the jihad mind setting against all our enemies, by intelligent laws and not by murder, show them an example what an intelligent jihadist can do. Also all civil rights to these terrorists and those that betray our country should be denied. They use our humanitarian laws for their advantage only. All student visas to this country should be limited, and every 6 month chech on their scholastic activities.

  • LindaRivera

    It is obvious that the U.S. administration are DETERMINED that investigators will NEVER find out about the other people who worked closely with the terrorists. The Administration goal is for Muslims to carry out more major terror attacks. Why else would they Mirandize the killer?

    At the same time, ruling elites are not going to let this opportunity go to waste. They will use this MUSLIM terror attack to DESTROY more rights and freedoms of NON-MUSLIMS. Their plans were already in place only waiting for the next terror attack to carry out their freedom-destroying acts.

    More government warnings will be given that Evangelical Christians, Catholics, pro-lifers and tea party people are the ones who are dangerous. More Muslim Brotherhood operatives will be placed into positions of great power in the government.

    I am glad that someone stepped in and gave him His Miranda warning, other wise Obama and Holder would have been more than happy to set him free, on the legal pretext of not reading him his Miranda rights as a citizen first allowing him to go free. Oh what a boon that would be to the cause of the Muslim terrorist world wide. This way it is going to take more from the survivor allowing us to expand our resources or at least letting others think that he has.

    The west continues to fritter away its rights freedoms laws and common sense with a cringing embarrassment
    at their own accomplishments and a fawning groveling rush of lemming like false belief in multiculturism.
    While we support all freedoms of the perpetrators terror and accord them all the rights they are not entitled to
    they on the other hand continue to despise us and believe we owe them welfare and housing and the god given right to bite the hand that feeds them.
    We are solely to blame, the hollywood style electorate and the shunning of common sense when electing leaders like obama and potentially quite soon trudeau in canada , means that we will continue to erode our own values and ignore the obvious threat from the islamic radicals, whose cause is deemed an unmentionable topic due to the insane pc that and left wing idiocy that is running the media and the world.
