FBI claims that "due to public safety" miranda rights have been suspended in this case. This just adds insult to this shutting down half of Boston. I was suspecting that government crooks will use this incident in some cynical way, yet I didn't that it will end up in such a fiasco. After installing SWAT team in every little police department around police and FBI has fucked up every possible aspect of chasing those two idiots and now they are covering their asses by revoking the suspect right to attorney. They propably know that after total fuckup they did suspect would propably go away free due to some technicality shown in court. This also establishes VERY bad precedent that will be used by police forces to lock down innocent people around the country. I can easily imagine that protesting against bankster corruption in the future will land you in jail without right to attorney "due to public safety". It's total fuckup on all possible accounts.
If those two terrorists wanted to inflict damage on USofA, they've propably achieved way more than they've imagined.
I think we need this. Maybe then this country will become so incensed as to violently take down a government so corrupt and out of control that no other means exist to change it and start again -- learning from our mistakes. Or maybe the people will become even more apathetic than they are now and just lay down and submit.
I beg to differ. At a point where most of people will want to take down government violently, you'll have fully armed drones ("Obama Drones") flying over US bombing anyone your lovely coporations want to be eliminated. Your lovely corporate media will spew lies justifying killing or will orchestrate media blackout, so no one will know about this. Pretty much like in Pakistan today. If you think that your psychopatic corporate overlords see any difference between killing US citizens and some brown people in Pakistan (except for bad PR), you'll find it out the hard way.
Either way -- major changes are coming for the people of the US, and none of them good.
It's never too late to try fighting this disease. Unfortunately, anyone trying to protest against corporate greed and corruption from now on, will propably face some jail time - just like in old communist countries, when the powers that be lose legitimacy and abilities to manipulate the public, they resort to more and more brutal tactics.
In most cases it is corporate fascism masquerading itself as socialism. It starts up with Obama administration which is clearly a fascist government, yet media lie us about it calling them "liberal" or "socialist". The same in EU - all their commissars are corporate sock puppets, yet everyone calls them socialist. The same with greek government giving in to Goldman Sachs.
Corporation don't care if it is "left" or "right". Their only concern is money. JP Morgan and Walmart earn gobs of money on foodstamps program after all...
It is almost an anthithesis to the word "justice". Consequences (punishment) depend only on two things: 1) who you are 2) whose fingers did you stomp on. Actual damages does not matter much (if at all).
If you're a big bank, corporation or some awfully rich individual with political connections, you propably get away with anything (be it drug money laundering, like HSBC, scamming an awful lot of people like in fraudclosure fiasco or stealing private e-mails and passwords en masse, like Google). If you're an ordinary folk and you anger some police mob, you're toast, whenever you did something illegal or not.
If you harm ordinary people, it will propably be ignored (try calling police when some burglar robs your house). If you stand in the way of some big fat corporation interests, your "justice" department will smash you immediately. Just ask Dotcom. Or even better - compare Google's fine for collecting Wifi data ($7m) with Google's fine for stomping on big pharma interests and displaying canadian pharmacies commercials in the US ($500m).
Now try to explain me that this is NOT a rigged system.
meanwhile the line of unedited cables line is full of shit. minstrelmike is clearly trolling. Whereas NYT can't even get basic information right, wikileaks actually edited the information before releasing it.
I think it was intentional lie, not just an omission or lack of fact checking on behalf of NYT. After all this is corporate media producing corporate propaganda on behalf of your corporate government. A while ago they boasted that they "fact checked" all their wikileaks-related publications with Obama administration itself. "Mr President, can we publish this or that ?" I urge to NOT believe anything NYT writes without confronting it with other sources (preferably non-corporate and non-US).
