"Prominent Republicans, including Sen. John McCain and Rep. Peter King, want to deny Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights by holding him as an enemy combatant ('Republicans want Boston bombing suspect treated as enemy combatant, sparking Miranda debate,' April 21). Beware. As dangerous and evil as Mr. Tsarnaev might be, he could never pose as great a threat to the republic as that which is posed by government officials impulsively circumventing well-established Constitutional procedures in the name of public safety."
