"Public Safety Exception?" Um, No.

The "public safety exception" is bullshit in the first place, but even were it permissible it is intended to apply only to circumstances of immediate danger.

No such circumstances exist. They've caught the guy. He's in custody and his alleged accomplice is dead, and they had Boston and environs on (completely illegal) "lockdown" prior to his capture.

They're just continuing to roll the dice on a week-long project to see how much totalitarian lawlessness they can get away with.

The response to the Boston Marathon attack has so far been a near-complete victory for Islamist terrorists, and treating Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as anything other than a run-of-the-mill criminal suspect is just continuing to give them (and their allies, the "neoconservatives" and other authoritarian interventionists) exactly what they want.
