All of them for Christ's sake!!! Daryl what's up with you?
It's about human rights, not about "deserving" them!
Wow, none of them? American citizens don't deserve their civil rights based on the heinousness of their crime?
What made America so special is that we were a country of laws, laws that apply to every person in the country from the highest to the lowest, from the best to the worst. No longer could a king simply decide to take land, quarter troops, murder or do anything else he wanted to his subjects. Instead we were citizens who had rights to protect them from the government regardless of who they are.
When we start giving that up, allowing the government to pick and choose who has their rights protected and who doesn't, then we start giving up what makes us special. It's a shame so many don't see that.
Well put, tiredofit. Thank you.
Tuscan killer only had a Glock 19. No rifles.
As much as I hate to admit agreeing with tiredofit, but they do indeed deserve their rights. The only time they totally surrender their rights is in the commission of their crimes. Then kill them with extreme prejudice. Once they stop being a threat, they must be captured and stand trial. It must be legal and proper.
I can only hope a blog post will follow to "clarify" what appears to be a heinous sentiment. Conditional due process is meaningless and arbitrary, Mr. Cagle.
THE PUBLIC deserves for these men to be read their Miranda rights. I deserve it. My rights are diminished if theirs are ignored.
Scenario 1) a guy walks into a crowded theater and opens fire with a gun capable of holding too many bullets. Lots of people die. They get decent picutes of the guy on the theater security cameras and ask the public for their help identifying him. He is, subsequently identified and caught.
Does he deserve to be read his miranda rights??
Scenario 2) EXACTLY the same as scenario 1), except YOU are the person identified (incorrectly).
Do you deserve to be read your miranda rights???
The only thing that exceeds my surprise at the content of this Darryl Cagle cartoon is my disappointment. I fervently believe in the exact opposite of this point of view. it seems atypical of the Cagle opinion I have previously experienced. Is an op-ed explanation forthcoming?.
Wow! Just, wow!
Daryl, did some right-wing idiot hijack your web site? It's most important to keep your wits about you when everyone else is in a panic. This cartoon fails that test, big time.
I don't want criminals and terrorists to have civil rights in order to protect THEM. I want them to have civil rights in order to protect ALL OF US.
Sorry to tell you this, but there are just as many liberal democrats that are fully willing to throw your civil rights under the bus as 'right-wing idiots' will. I'm libertarian myself. We're big on constitutional rights. Socially liberally, fiscally conservative, so why are we mostly allied with the right wing then?
American's are too compassionate didnt the Chechen's kill 180 children in a school. He feel we are enemies of Allah
I think you're just trolling for comments on this one, Darryl. The fact that you drew the Tucson whack-job with a rifle instead of the handgun he actually used seems to be the giveaway to me – comment insurance, if you will, as in if the sentiment of the cartoon doesn't reel 'em in, the rifle 'gaffe' will. It would've been a better cartoon period if the answer had been 'All of them' in my opinion.
Daryl Cagle YOU just PROVED YOU ARE IGNORANT, STUPID, ILLITERATE, ILLOGICAL, IRRATIONAL, UNSCIENTIFIC, INCOMPETENT, NEGLIGENT, DERELICT, DELUSIONAL and SERIOUSLY MENTALLY SICK!!! PSYCHOTIC!!!
Now go have your mommy tuck you into bed!!!
Cagle, I always knew you were an ignorant, simple minded coward. You have made that painfully obvious over the years. But I guess you figured now was the time to fully reveal what a pathetic excuse of a human being you are.
