Good morning friends, here’s the straight scoop from the Big House in Danao – I hope this day brings you peace. Since so many Filipino semen work as sea going mariners carrying oil from the Middle East and large vessels carrying cargo from port to port, face trouble on the high seas with today’s pirates. The worst maritime sea lane that the seamen experience might be the dangerous Malacca Straits or around the Africa Horn. With that in mind I have recently posted videos of countries doing their best to protect these seamen and their ships. North Korea has moved two short-range missile launchers to its east coast, apparently indicating it is pushing ahead with preparations for a test launch, a South Korean news agency reported on Sunday. An unidentified South Korean military source told the South’s Yonhap news agency that satellite imagery showed that North Korean forces had moved two mobile missile launchers for short-range Scud missiles to South Hamgyeong province. The North moved two mid-range Musudan missiles in early April and placed seven mobile launchers in the same area. Of course let us not the Loony Tune Leader of North Korea who wants to be God from Hell. Now let me say something about the terrorist who set off the bombs in Boston, now wants his constituent rights. I ask where are the constituent rights of the killed. Why did he the kill the innocent or was he a religious fanatics? A Justice Department official says the Boston Marathon bombing suspect will not be read his Miranda rights because the government is invoking a public safety exception. That official and a second person briefed on the investigation says 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be questioned by a special interrogation team for high-value suspects. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to disclose the information publicly. Please see yesterday’s post “Breaking News.”

The Obama administration’s announcement that it would question the Boston Marathon bombing suspect for a period without first reading him the Miranda warning of his right to remain silent and have a lawyer present has revived a constitutionally charged debate over the handling of terrorism cases in the criminal justice system. The administration’s effort to stretch a gap in the Miranda rule for questioning about immediate threats to public safety has alarmed advocates of individual rights. “The public safety exception to Miranda should be a narrow and limited one, and it would be wholly inappropriate and unconstitutional to use it to create the case against the suspect,” Anthony Romero, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, said. “The public safety exception would be meaningless if interrogations are given an open-ended time horizon.” Please see yesterday’s post “Breaking News.”
