    Don't fall for this crap. It's just red meat for right-wingers.

    It may be technically true that after 16 hours, he had nothing left to say... so they read him his rights... and he didn't say anything more. Because there really isn't much more they have to ask him! And even if they had a couple more questions, not much more he really knows. Who cares about this?

    16 hours is a lot of time for the authorities to figure out whatever they needed to figure out. These two jokers were a couple of idiots anyway... think about it:
    - They made crude bombs from instructions on the internet. bombers in other countries make far more powerful bombs.
    - They didn't realize that at one of the most-photographed events in the world... someone would get a photo of them.
    - They hung around Boston, had no escape plan, and panicked when their pictures were released.

    Does this really sound like the work of dangerous professional terrorists? They were a couple of pissed-off violent young people stuck in a world they couldn't make sense of. Their uncle said it best - a couple of losers.

    Freedom isn't free. So quit whining and pay your taxes.

      The NY Times story validates the loser thing. IMO,  they wanted a confession they could use in court.  No attorney would allow their client to confess.  They got it and charged him the next day.  

      The issue is really a larger one about denying someone their 5th amendment right.
