Suppose the marathon bombings had been committed by born-again Christian Tea Party members on the dole.

Do you really think that Gov. Deval Patrick would be hanging on to those terrorists’ welfare files even tighter than he clutches Lt. Gov. Tim Murray’s state cellphone logs from the morning of Nov. 3, 2011?

If these were “domestic” terrorists, I guarantee you Deval would have coughed up everything by now, up to and including whether they were getting on-the-arm brand-name or generic prescription drugs.

Hey Deval, I’ve got some news for you. Tamerlan doesn’t care if you release his welfare records. He’s got his hands full right about now with the 72 virgins.

Bulletin, governor: Their last name is Tsarnaev, not LaGuer, so why do you care?

Deval said yesterday,“I can understand people’s curiosity.”

Curious? How about, furious?

Interesting, though, how welfare recipients — at least if they’re foreign terrorists — have more privacy rights than state workers.

If you go to bostonherald.com , you can find out the salaries (or pensions) of every state worker in Massachusetts. Of course, those people are citizens and taxpayers. The only ones lower than taxpayers on the PC totem pole are gun owners — by God, you can print their names, and addresses.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, on the other hand, was an alien mass-murdering deadbeat. Excuse me — he was a “stay-at-home dad.” That’s how the Globe describes him — where are we going to get our laughs when the bow-tied bumkissers are gone?

But despite Deval’s shameless preening for the next Profiles in Courage Award, the reality is that his hacks are releasing the Tsarnaevs’ public records.

A Bulger bumkisser named Bob Connolly (projected 2013 pay:$184,161.90 a year) issued this statement for UMass Dartmouth, alma mater of Dzhohkar:“Student records including academic records … cannot under federal law be released without a student’s consent.”

Really? Then how was The New York Times able to report that Junior got “F’s in Principles of Modern Chemistry, Intro American Politics, and Chemistry and the Environment … and a D and D-plus in two other courses.”

Dzhokhar’s a regular John Kerry. You’d think he’d have done better in chem, being a bomber and all. Wonder what he got in driver’s ed, given how he used his brother as a speed bump last week.

Maybe for their next trick, the Times will print Obama’s academic records. Nah, probably not …

But cut Deval some slack. He isn’t stonewalling for the terrorists, he’s just sheltering in place. And after all, the Tsarnaevs were only taking the welfare Americans can’t be bothered taking.

Here’s my tabloid headline suggestion:“Patrick to Taxpayers: Drop Dead.”

Pretty hard to see what the public could gain right at the moment from divulging welfare records. If relevant to the case against the surviving terrorist, there are means by which they can be obtained--courts, judges, subpoenas, all that stuff.

What is disappointing is the number of people who seem to think that special rules can be drawn around those accused of certain crimes, or frighteningly, those from certain backgrounds accused of certain crimes and all rights, constitutional guarantees and even common sense or basic humanity pitched to the wind.

As it happens, the surviving terrorist is a US citizen. And whether or not hindsight says that status ought not have been granted, it is a fact. One cannot simply strip this citizen of all rights (and there have been discussions of waterboarding, military tribunals--all manner of things that we simply do not carry out on fellow-citizens, even if accused of crimes) because we find this crime more offensive than some others. To do so makes decisions in defiance of the presumption of innocence until proven guilty in a court of law. It sets a lower standard of justice based on a presumption rather of guilt.

Now, as a citizen, I have no problem believing in the guilt of the suriving terrorist, or his deceased brother. That is a matter of opinion. However, to deny that citizen--even as he stands accused of a horrible crime--all the rights we claim to believe in--is to not only weaken those rights for all others, but also strains our belief in the capabilities of our justice system to get at truth even WHILE operating under a presumption of innocence.

Newsflash: Tamerlan was never a citizen, received welfare as an adult and is dead. He has no rights.

Welfare is grated to family groups.

But, go ahead, make a request under a public records claim and see how far you get.

How in the world can you be so ignorant? HOW?

"On Wednesday, January 2, 2013, President Barack Obama did what constitutionalists and civil libertarians knew he would do: He signed into law the renewal of his power to apprehend and detain Americans indefinitely on no more authority than his own suspicion of their complicity with enemies in the “War on Terror.”

With more of a whimper than a bang, the president signed the Fiscal Year 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). As he did on New Year’s Eve 2011 when he signed last year’s version of the NDAA, President Obama appended a signing statement to the act. This time, however, there were no promises of protecting Americans from deprivations of due process."

It saddens me greatly that so many women limit their knowledge of "rights" to abortion and birth control. While you were all discussing Sandra Fluke and whether the Catholic church should be forced to pay for birth control pills, something far more important was making its way through Washington. Good job being duped, ladies!
