Cato — Roger Pilon: No Miranda?

At Cato and Forbes, Roger Pilon writes approvingly about the choice to interrogate Boston bombing suspect Tsarnaev without previously informing him of his right to remain silent and to be represented by counsel. Roger shows amazing deference to the presumably classified information presumably possessed by the authorities. Is there really an army of undetected fellow terrorists ready to blow up everything in sight? Hidden so well that it can be unmasked only by skirting the edge of legality and going beyond the bounds of ethics?

This leads naturally into the horrifying statement that New York state senator Greg Ball advocates the torture of suspected ( only suspected, not proven ) terrorists.

The terrorists have truly won, when the US government itself becomes a terrorist organization. What kind of country is this?

Roger Pilon isn’t helping.
