Sen. Paul Speaks Out Against GOP Colleagues Over Status of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Does not want the Boston Marathon bombing suspect to be treated as an "enemy combatant"


In an interview with Fox Business on Monday evening, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) came out against Republicans who had called for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to be held as an "enemy combatant."

"I think we can still preserve the Bill of Rights," Paul told Neil Cavuto. "I see no reason why our Constitution isn't strong enough to convict this young man, with a jury trial, with The Bill of Rights. We do it to horrible people all the time. Rapists and murders – they get lawyers, they get trials with juries and we seem to do a pretty good job of justice, so I think we can do it through our court system."
