No he's already been tried by the media. It does make me wonder if, just as an experiment, you could randomly select someone, pay the media to make a big fuss like he was planning a bombing and then have a perfectly innocent person convicted.
Doubtful. As posted by MANITU, you can bet he will get the best legal representation because there will always be a legal eagle wishing to make a name for himself no matter if he thinks he is guilty like the rest of us around the world. Serenitree and Ilove2benaked comments are right on the mark.
I agree but there are many they will take on the job just for the notoriety.
I don't have the morals.
The only question now is will he get the death penalty ..I think most everyone has him pegged for guilty...As he should be...
Likely not; I would suspect that any defense attorney would move immediately for a change of venue.
Are you serious? he isn't going to get a fair trial anywhere in the USA, 0bama and the news media will see to that.
There have been several days of non stop reporting on the bombing, the manhunt and the capture complete with photographs of the suspect. For the first couple of days you had to work at it to find a channel that didn't have the bombing on it. 0bama is already catching flack over his penchant for killing US citizens without a trial via drone, I think he wants a show trial with a predetermined outcome just to bolster his image. he has already been on national television using this incident as an excuse for political speeches.
Correct , up to and including using the weight of his office to insure a guilty verdict.
It's not a matter of what the prosecutors will need, If past experience has shown us anything about 0bama it is that he has no problem with taking credit for the good work of others and will take credit for a conviction even if through the justice department.
Conversely he has no problem with blaming others for his failures, but that's a topic for another day.
Let it go? I would say the same thing about any president that behaved the way 0bama has.
His attorney will move for a "change of venue" for the trial........
What if it is all a sham and the brothers were fr
Have you seen any of that stuff? More convincing than the World Trade Center conspiracy theories.
So, you would be in the NO column?
What are they broomimg out of this one?
didn't he tell the judge that he can't afford a lawyer? i'd bet that a legal-aid lawyer won't be up to the job of handling something this big
Are you volunteering lol?
I think, with the way the media is, these days, the venue doesn't matter. There is nowhere in the world that hasn't heard about and developed an opinion, on how he should be treated.
The only fair trial he should get would be at the end of a rope, from a long fall and a short rope, at that.
I would love to be.
Does he deserve a fair trial?Was the bomb fair to those who died and were injured unexpectedly did they have the option of being "judged" fairly?An 8 year old young boy died!He wasn't asked "do you want a fair chance to see much more of life son" before he died. Quite frankly who cares whether he has a fair trial or not?He had it coming!
"Does he deserve a fair trial?" Yes, because that's the whole point of civilisation.
Touche. I submit.
