Warren: Bombing prosecutors must find 'balance'

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren says federal prosecutors need to "find the right balance" in deciding whether to read Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights.

Warren, a former Harvard Law School professor, spoke to reporters Sunday during a visit to a makeshift memorial to the attack victims a few blocks from the Boston Marathon finish line.

The American Civil Liberties Union and a federal public defender have raised concerns about investigators' plan to question Tsarnaev without reading him his Miranda rights. U.S. officials say that is allowed to do that on a limited basis when the public may be in immediate danger.

Warren, a freshman Democrat, said the Justice Department is pursuing the twin interests of protecting public safety and bringing "those who did this heinous act to justice."
