    Boston a model for martial law

    This is how they carried out house to house searches after shutting down the city, and to think these people cheered the way it was handled.

    Well I don't think they cheered that, but they did cheer getting the guy and that I can understand. I don't like the idea our nation can impose a door to door search at the whim of politico's and bureacrats who demand it. That is alarming to me. Boston perhaps the sheep are a little easier to heard; I dare say there are some houses in my areas of dear ole liberal CA they might have more trouble - a lot more trouble.

    We are here to protect you, do as we say if you don't want to be shot. The consitution is dead if they can suspend it for over 1 million people because one armed person is on the loose.

    With that many men, you could sweep that house in a lot less than 6 minutes...seems like a lot of poking about time.

    It was obvious even from this far away non of the people that were led out of the house were the person they were looking for yet they were all treated as criminals, "Keep your hands up" each of them patted down and the lady that left with the dog, the dog was taken away from her, notice it tied to the fence after she is escorted away.

    I hope there are a ton of civil rights cases against the city of Boston over this.

    First off why don't you all get real. This wasn't just one lone nut with a gun. This was a dedicated terrorist who'd already shown a willingness to kill or maim large numbers of innocent folks with bombs. And rememeber we had no idea how deep this plot/cell goes. Would you rather he got to an MBTA station Friday morning and set off one of those suicide bomb vests and killed a hundred folks? And guess what this little twerp was hiding in the area that was being searched.

    A good chunk of you preppers need to get a real life and learn how to deal with the real world. I'm betting that none of you have ever met a real life murder or sicko child molester. Yeah! they really do look just like you and me.

    And those were real families that were forcibly taken out of their homes at gunpoint while government officials searched their homes and their person without a warrant, probable cause or their consent. It is clearly unconstitutional regardless of what "better good" the police were trying to accomplish. Are we a nation of laws or are we a nation of men?

    If you are okay with suspending the Constitution during extreme situations like occurred in Boston, just remember you are never more than one crisis away from living in a police state.

    Unbelievable! Knee jerk reaction to a crisis and our rights are gone in the name of security. Not the way I would have handled the search.

    Agreed. Armed police patrolling the streets is good. Telling people to stay inside is good. Knocking on doors and asking if the occupants were OK is good. Entering and searching without warrants does not fly. Totally unconstitutional.
    What would have happened if they yanked open my door and there I was with my AK, protecting my home and wife from mad bombers on the loose?
    As Judge Napalitano said on Fox News, the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and nowhere there-in is there any provision for suspending the Constitution.

    That vid looked like an isolated case to me, maybe the occupants were crooks or troublemakers with criminal records known to the police.
