Forum Post: Representative King Ups The Game

Fox News reporter Greta Van Susteren asked Representative King about the appearance of Magistrate Marianne Bowler at the hospital bedside of the Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Kings response, as reported by The Washington Free Beacon:

PETER KING: My understanding the FBI did not invite the magistrate. The FBI was conducting its interrogation and the magistrate arrived which I think is unusual. I haven’t practiced law in awheel but I haven’t heard of a judge coming uninvited or unannounced to conduct an arraignment while interrogation is still going on. That is one of the issues. And also, apparently there was an Assistant U.S. Attorney with the magistrate. I don’t know if it this was arranged by the Attorney General for the Justice Department, it just raised very interesting issues.

This report has been echoed throughout the Fox News empire, and goes so far as to quote Janet Napolitano as claiming "Right Hand Didn't Know What Left Hand Was Doing"

On April 20, King was one of four elected representatives advocating for the intrusion of military authority in the pursuit of Justice.

This has the feel of a carefully choreographed political campaign, with the purpose, in this case,

of deliberately subverting the United States Constitution

Since when does the FBI invite a magistrate? That would be very unusual, I would think. It very may well be the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing-as far as the FBI was concerned. It may also be a not so secret little war behind the scenes.

I suspect that this will be very public and intentionally so.

I bet it's a shit editing job. For myself, I don't see her as lending credence to enemy combatant status. In fact, I see it as going the opposite direction. But, I agree with everything else in that she knows the truth will come out and she is covering her own ass.

It's like a Nancy Grace interview with a prosecutor or attorney and that person says, but you know that isn't how it works. She knows. It just doesn't fit her agenda and she banks on other people not knowing.

I don't understand why. If we keep the fact that in the background is this is an American citizen and that this is the right jurisdiction then it alleviates the fear of indefinite detention.

You know what? You're right. She makes no bones about her stance and that would start from the beginning.

Zen, did you see the typo?

Ok, I have been looking at this too long and I need to get ready to go.

I bet. I take it she has a warrant on top of all of this.

shoplifting and property damage. I just came across another article that says that she is wanted and thus implying that she has a warrant

Since court records are public records we must assume that she does have a felony warrant out - and a felony warrant for shoplifting suggests the possibility of ties to organized crime. It suggests shoplifting in bulk, which is usually resold, and that usually involves a network of individuals acting in cooperation - some of these networks can be sizable and elaborate.


No, the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony shoplifting charge is the value of the items taken.

Isn’t shoplifting considered a minor offense? What determines if the charge is a misdemeanor or a felony?

Shoplifting is theft and a criminal offense no matter how much a person steals. However, the actual charges are determined by the amount and value of the merchandise stolen. What that amount is varies from state to state. For example, shoplifting is generally considered a misdemeanor (petit theft or larceny) if the value of the merchandise is less than $200 - $500. If the value of the stolen goods exceeds $500, it is often considered a felony and a person can be charged with grand theft or grand larceny. (Refer to Shoplifting Laws by State below to find the shoplifting laws in your state.) http://www.shopliftingprevention.org/shoplifting-laws/shoplifting-laws.html

So, lets say that I walk into a store and attempt to steal some necklaces, a bathing suit, two pairs of earrings and a few dresses. The total value is something like $550 and now it's a felony. Give me a sec to read the rest.I just wanted to address that first.

I am unwilling to make that kind of a leap. I just thought that on top of trying to process what has occurred and having one son dead and the other in a hospital that she was also in fear of being arrested.

That is a pretty big leap to jump from someone who may have attempted to steal merchandise that is valued at a felony level because they wanted it to working for organized crime. I can't do it.

What is a CNN analysis of social media? An account with Spokeo? I keep reading through that article and I am noting what they do not know. When did a CNN analysis of social media become legitimate fact versus what is inferred.

It does look like a lot of theater.
