Pray for Dzhokhar. At this point he has no hope of receiving a fair trial.
The U.S. President, Barack Obama, has already suggested that the two brothers accused in the Boston Marathon bombings, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were “self-radicalized.” So Obama, supposed expert on Constitutional law, has inherently declared Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to be guilty! How fair of a trial can Dzhokhar Tsarnaev expect after that?
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is represented by unknown “public defenders.” Hearsay via the mainstream “news” is that Dzhokhar’s “defenders” are already working out a plea bargain. The “defenders” have already given up, if “news” accounts are correct.
No members of Dzhokhar’s family have been able to meet with him. Dzhokhar’s father, Anzor Tsarnaev, residing overseas, is too ill to make the journey. Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, mother of Dzhokhar, faces frenzied hostile mobs if she travels to America. (Just look at what even her dead son Tamerlan is facing as he tries to get buried.) “I am just a little fly that they can crush,” said Maret Tsarnaeva, Dzhokhar’s aunt, who has been intimidated into silence. With caution, Ruslan Tsarni, uncle of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar, is currently occupied just with trying to get Tamerlan decently buried.
So surrounded by hostility, with only a “public defender” to lean on, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remains isolated and utterly alone. This is “due process”?
The whole world is watching, to see how justice operates in the United States of America. Thus far it has seen trial by press, where shadowy government sources, speaking anonymously, plant strategic leaks into the mass media witchcraft trial and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is denied the right to confront and cross-examine these whisperers from the shadows. (Background: “Strategic Leaks of the Secret Sources”, Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of April 30, 2013)
It has been weeks now since Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was apprehended. Have his “defenders” even bothered yet with a writ of habeas corpus? “Deliver the body.” Even if bail cannot be granted to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, presumed innocent, cannot family members be allowed to speak with him in person?
It is high time a defense fund was set up for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Attorney Jim Garrison, during his efforts at investigating the assassination of John F. Kennedy, received minor donations from thousands of public-spirited Americans. But who would administer a Dzhokhar Tsarnaev defense fund? The uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, weakened by grief, is already pre-occupied just with getting his nephew Tamerlan buried. A Dzhokhar Tsarnaev public defense fund would allow Dzhokhar to afford a real lawyer, not some bureaucrat on the government payroll.
Fair trial for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? The U.S. President has already declared Dzhokhar guilty. A witch-hunt “trial” is being conducted in the “news.” Speaking from the shadows, anonymous accusers cannot be cross-examined. The defendant, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is being kept isolated and his “defenders” do not even bother with habeas corpus.
The whole world is watching. “Ah, you see, this is how the great American justice system truly operates.”
