Letter: Remember the value of due process

Published:

 

To declare bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev an enemy combatant would be, in my opinion, a grave mistake. Doing so would deprive the suspect, an American citizen, of his constitutional rights.

A large part of the world is watching this tragic series of events. Depriving Tsarnaev due process of law would demonstrate to much of the world that America is a nation of laws only when it's convenient.
