So what. lets not forget what he did, he knew the consequences of his actions. you really think the piece of dirt deserves anything more than his basic rights?

So you're saying we should just lynch mob whoever we suspect of committing a murder?  No trial?  No Evidence?  No Jury?

I said basic rights, as in being read his Miranda rights, having a fair trial, a jury and a need for evidence. But i think that the firefight beforehand classes as pretty good evidence. I will however agree that the boat arrest situation could have, and should have been dealt with better rather than just filling the boat with brass. I was just kinda irritated at seeing people on other websites more or less taking this guys side. He deserves his rights, as all of us do, They are one thing that we all, as humans are entitled to. But, he is a murderer and deserves to be treated as such. I didn't mean to start an argument.

But, he is a murderer and deserves to be treated as such.

And thats exactly what we're on about. You don't know that he's a murderer, none of us do, thats the whole entire point of the trial. Even if you have the most impartial, unbiassed view in the world and the ability to look at everything completely logically and analytically, you don't have access to all of the evidence and what you do have access to via the media has more than likely been sensationalized to some degree. The very best you can possibly say is that he is probably a murderer, and that just isn't a good enough reason for anyone to treat him like he's already been convicted.

Touché, I give in. But at the end of the day people are dead. That is what upsets me the most, i don't care about what happens to him, be it good or bad, the people who are dead are never coming back and did not deserve what happened to them, and i think they deserve more attention than their alleged killer. The bad are always more heard of than the good. Just as the accused is always more heard of than the victim or victims.

Also,   there was NOT a firefight.   The police surounded the boat and shot at him.   According to officials he was unarmed.  No matter how you feel about him,   surounding an unarmed man and firing 50+ rounds at him is attempted murder.  It's completely unacceptable.

They surounded an unarmed US citizen convicted of no crime and they shot him in the neck.

I would like to apologize if i came across as a douchebag, i was just annoyed and upset at the amount of killing that we constantly hear about nowadays. There is no need for it.

Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev allegedly left a note in the boat where he was captured.

Collateral damage... making the target what, the pavement? I guess he was trying to compare them to 'collateral damage' in the war(s) and just didn't think about the wording too hard. It's an understandable sentiment I guess, if that's the actual reason for the bombs, but a pretty lousy attempt to fight back. Surely if not common sense, at least a brief look at history would have shown that you won't improve your cause much by attacking random people you can vaguely relate to something. If he was prepared to go that far he would've been more useful documenting civilian casualties the US caused or something...
