Boston suspect’s friends charged for removing evidence
Give bomber all rightful legal assistance
In the righteous anger that has gripped the nation since the Boston Marathon bombings, let us not give up our precious civil liberties; let this vital principle of our national life be unconditionally extended to the alleged surviving bomber himself [“‘Take whatever you want,’ Boston suspect texted chums,” News, May 2].
Let him have a lawyer present at each interrogation. Otherwise, there is no trusting any story put out; it could all be a sham. Let Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s parents and relatives be shown every courtesy and provided with translators, legal help and bodyguards if necessary. We don’t have the answers yet.
