FBI agents thought they had 48 hours to extract terror information from Boston Bomber suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev. They were surprised when a federal judge strolled into his hospital room and read him his rights. The judge’s drop by was initiated when the Justice Department (home of the FBI) filed charges against Dzhokar.
Dzhokar’s dead brother, Tamerlan, once said that he didn’t have any American friends because he didn’t understand them.
Dzhokar, on the other hand, seems to understand Americans just fine. He immediately shut up.
As the president would say, the public’s views have “evolved” on social issues. People are becoming more tolerant of homosexuality in general and same sex marriage in particular. Ten states plus the District of Columbia now recognize same sex marriage.
Abortion is trickier. According to a Quinnipiac poll 63% still support the Roe v Wade decision. Yet in a USA Today Poll only 28% believe it should always be legal, 52% say sometimes legal, and 18% never legal. Eighty percent feel it should never be legal in the last trimester of pregnancy – Dr. Gossnell’s sweet spot.
Unfortunately, that last trimester is also the sweet spot for politicians like Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. While scolding the gun lobby’s “willfull lies”, the president blindly supports an abortion lobby that leads to barbaric practices like Dr. Gossnell’s.
(Journalists have been shamed into providing more coverage of the case.)
Law enforcement seem to love the media until they don’t. The digital wanted poster of the two Boston Marathon suspects was displayed on millions of screens and quickly led to the demise of suspect number one, and the capture of number two. The same media, however, inadvertantly gave away police positions with initial images of the search.
It was a shameful day for Washington. The senate let the president down and we disappointed him. Again. Now he is scolding us and we are snickering. Vice Principal Biden is really pissed. They’re in danger of losing control of Junior High America and the good kids are mortified.
