Something wrong there

one has to wonder what is actually going on when America's own government arranges bombings in public places so it can overreact and deploy military forces into civilian areas
American isnt not being invaded, the true terrorists were already inside usa, sitting in the white house and the hall of congress, and the American People need to fight back

The Boston bombing provided the opportunity
for the government to turn vvhat should have
been a police investigation into a
occupation of an American city.

Yes, it was scary to see the government take over a city. Nothing actually came of it, and nobody was doubting the governments [i]ability[/i] to take over a city. If they hadn't locked down the city, and these guys set off ANOTHER bomb, everyone would be screaming "the police cant do anything right why didnt they lock down the city hurr durr." It's easier to complain about someone else than suggest an alternative, which is why everyone (including me) does it.

As much as I agree with Ron about US becoming a "police state", this was a terrible example.

The problem wasn't the occupation, it was the forces used for the occupation.

SWAT forces in full gear, with rifles, patrolling the streets in MRAPs; FBI Hostage Rescue Team wearing multicam and scanning the streets, ATF and FBI agents running around with rifles and riot gear, etc., etc.

These units are overly militarized.
A peacekeeper exists to do exactly that; i.e., keep the peace.
A soldier's main duty is to eliminate enemy forces.

When you begin to blur the line between the two, by giving peacekeepers automatic weapons and armored vehicles, you let them believe that they are there solely to kill. And regardless of crime, everybody in the U.S. is entitled to a fair trial.

TL;DR Police were fine, MRAPs and automatic weapons were a bit overboard.

Ron is an asshole
I still fail to understand why the internet likes him so much. I mean, next to people like ***** Romney I can see why they might want him, but on his own he's certainly no paradigm of morality

People were scared. They put the soldiers there to make the people who lived in the area feel safe again, instead of living in fear.

Ron Paul took what was really a move to make people feel safe and turned it into a government conspiracy. We should fear that less than bombings though. because bombings kill people/

Honestly if they activated some of the home guard in response to this I would not be complaining, treasonists and terrorists need to be met with as much force as they are demonstrating with, especially when that force is used near civilians. Police may be capable of handling the situation but the military has the big guns and the multi-million dollar tools, they should have been utilized.

Yeah, I'm really upset that the US shut down the city and stopped two maniacs with the intention of targeting another city! I would much rather watch a news report about more dead innocent people, as long as I know my freedom is intact. I ******* hate this ignorant, idealistic twat.

First of all, it was the national guard which was patrolling and investigating the incident, which is different from the 'American military' since it's controlled by the state. Second of all, there's zero proof that it was some inside job. more than likely, this is just a little something someone threw together to get everyone thinking... It's really disgusting to me.

There was nothing wrong with occupying an area where a possible terrorist threat had taken place. You mean to tell me you'd be ok with no one showing up at all?

Actually this is common practice in all countries if there has been a terrorist act where there was no immediate evidence as to who or what organization did it.
Seeing that this is how the government behaves when there is a terrorist attack by wannabe jihadis, it makes me feel that this is possibly the only attack not conducted by the government!
I mean the gov. freaked out, and they did all they could to make sure people are safe because they had no idea who was doing this. whilst in all previous terrorist attacks the gov. was super calm and collected, giving me the impression they were aware if not complicit in those activities.

a police style investigation would of taken a month, shutting down on of the busiest cities in the country and leaving it in panic, this "military style occupation" took about a week. I personally would take a week of US military "occupation" than a month of not leaving my house for basically anything and a month of constant panic.
