Questions raised about Miranda-less interrogation of bombing suspect

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON, MA (WFLA) -

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAR'tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) remains in serious condition and apparently in no shape for interrogation after being pulled bloody and wounded from a tarp-covered boat in a Watertown, Mass., backyard Friday.
    
The American Civil Liberties Union and a federal public defender have raised concerns about plans to question the surviving Boston bombing suspect without reading him his Miranda rights.  ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero says the legal exception on Miranda applies only when there is a continued threat to public safety and is not open-ended.
    
Public defender Miriam Conrad says there are "serious issues" regarding the interrogation.
