Forum Post: Law Professor John Yoo Apparently Unaware of Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure

Torture memo author John Yoo and others who have called for Boston marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to be held in military detention are claiming vindication following reports that Tsarnaev stopped talking to interrogators after a judge advised him of his right to remain silent.

"Apparently the FBI interrogated the younger Tsarnaev for 16 hours," wrote torture memo author John Yoo at National Review. "And then, for reasons that are still unknown, the government read him his rights."

Yoo has never met a right he didn't want to ball up like a piece of paper and toss into a trash can in the name of national security. But despite being an attorney and professor at the prestigious University of California Berkeley School of Law, Yoo is either misleading his readers about why Tsarnaev was read his rights or unaware of a basic legal rule.

My impression is that the bomber was not "substantially supported by al-Qaeda" as outlined in Section 1021 so I think such assertions are utterly absurd, intended as a political thorn in the side. No one who seeks justice would allow this to happen and I think the public will demand justice.

I think when it is completed that this right here is probably going to be closer to the truth. http://inthesetimes.com/article/14916/dream_to_wasteland_boston_bombers_and_the_denial_of_americas_grandeur/

Good post. The people need to see beyond their anger at mass murdering assholes and take note of how these incidents are being used to take away the rights of all the citizens all of the people of the USA.

I agree. It's one of those common sense things.

Yep - good sense. Does not happen when one is inflamed with anger.

You know I just had that conversation with Zen the other day. It is real hard not to say, screw everything I want to see you pay and pay and pay and pay. But, rights are only as strong as your weakest link. Similar to when ACLU backed the Neo Nazi march in Skokie, it's down right evil crap but, it had to be done.

Anger is in and of itself not a bad thing - it is how anger is used or abused. Much like anything else - it is the use that determines whether something can be good/beneficial or bad/detrimental. Anger can be a positive motivational force - as long as the anger does not rule.

I think anger is a great motivational force it is when it doesn't elicit reactionary solutions.

Yep - when it is used to fuel positive actions - such as kicking assholes out of office - or confronting the backers of pollution/greed etc. Yep - when anger is used/directed rationally - it can be very beneficial.

That march ( evil crap on display ) also worked to notify good people that there was/is a very sick element at large in their community.

and now, 19 minutes after posting, my comment on that article has been flagged for review . . . .

interesting

perhaps they have a policy regarding solicitation . . .

I didn't see that one earlier, but I've seen it now, and posted. It even has one like.

You are really good at this.

Hey thanks, I just went over there and I also wonder if they have something about solicitation.

I don't know but I think I am going to encourage everyone to view for themselves . . .
