7.11.13 … Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Blows a Kiss: “His trial now, as extraordinary as the testimony and the pain in individual lives is likely to be, should be a chance to make sure that our own judicial processes don’t start looking alien to us.” … “It’s our system in motion’’ … “The wheels are now turning.”

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, court, The New Yorker:  Just how is an alleged terrorist/murderer supposed to act ?

The reporters said that he didn’t look at the victims—there were about two dozen present—and only really paid attention to two women, thought to be his relatives. One was holding a baby, who, at times, was the only spectator making noise, and the only one not studying every aspect of Tsarnaev’s demeanor. When Tsarnaev left, he blew the women and baby a kiss.

After Tsarnaev’s arrest, the authorities held off reading him his Miranda rights at first, citing a vague public-safety exception. They waited too long, just as, in retrospect, the restraints the authorities placed on the city during the manhunt—an entire metropolitan area under lockdown—may have been too tight. His trial now, as extraordinary as the testimony and the pain in individual lives is likely to be, should be a chance to make sure that our own judicial processes don’t start looking alien to us. “It’s our system in motion,’’ Boston Police Superintendent-in-Chief Daniel Linskey told reporters after the hearing. “The wheels are now turning.”
