Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say FBI agents violated their client’s rights by questioning him after he asked for a lawyer 10 times from his hospital bed.

The L.A. Times reports the 20-year-old suspect was in pain, according to defense attorneys who also said authorities had determined there was no lingering threat to public safety went they interrogated him in April 2013.

“The questioning continued for hours, in what was obviously an effort to extract as much incriminating information as possible, without regard for the protections of the Fifth Amendment,” the lawyers said in a 21-page filing, The Times reported.

Too bad they didn't run over him like they did his brother. The talking heads on the news channels at the time said that this would be a issue for his lawyers, so not surprising.   :smokin:
