"If the evidence establishes the guilt of 19 year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of the two Boston bomber suspects, then by all rights he should be held to pay for his crimes in accordance with the law. He should be subject to any just punishment the law allows. That goes without saying. What should also go without saying are the constitutional requirements that this criminal suspect shall not be compelled by government authorities to be a witness against himself, and shall not be deprived of his right to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense throughout the entire process after his arrest and while in custody."
