theres a page i subcribe to that was complaining about this. when it comes to **** like a terror attack and the guys are on the lose i have no problem chilling in my house. id have done so even if the cops didnt say everyone had to stay in. id be posted up in the corner of my living room with the biggest knife i have or if i had a gun then i would have the gun just playing video games eating hot pockets and watching out for the guy. i believe the police in this country can go overboard, but in this instance i say good job to all of them and they handled it excellently

You're using that wrong and on the wrong website.

As if that somehow makes up for all the warrantless raids in Watertown that were done on people's houses, dragging the innocent from their homes onto the street.

You know. Like how fascist police states tend to do.

Well, you see, the 4th amendment (for anyone who's actually READ the Constitution's Bill of Rights) specifically says that they (the law enforcement) can't perform any UNREASONABLE searches. Some guy blew up 2 buildings, killed 3 people, injured 170+ more, and was getting away by using his contacts throughout the city, and going through people's yards and such. The searches were easily reasonable, and there was no rights infringement there at all when the entire country (and most of the world) was hunting for this guy. Not letting the government into your house after something of this caliber proves that you're either way too stubborn, or hiding this man inside of your home. Either way, they still win.

Fascism would be the people surrendering the milk to the government and then the government selling the milk to the people. Giving the milk to the people is more like communism than fascism.

All the stores were closed. All those police from out of town had nowhere to take a **** all day, so it is quite possibly the look of someone trying not to let loose the monster that's been festering since 3 am when the whole thing started.

Thumbing while discussing politics is only going to marginalize the unpopular or politically incorrect side. That's what makes Reddit and even our political board here, backwards.

Yeah we do tend to overreact when it comes to terrorists. It seems we're willing to give up our freedoms when our security is involved.

This event in particular wasn't that unreasonable because we've done worse to ourselves in the name of security.

It's a tough line to balance.
User avatar #275 to #256 - midgetnigger (04/21/2013) [-]
I'm curious. Why do you consider what they did an overreaction?
User avatar #466 to #275 - durkadurka (04/21/2013) [-]
I was speaking more towards our general reaction. This instance wasn't really an overreaction. I think the amount of equipment/manpower might have been overkill, but usually overreaction tends to present itself in mentality. We're very good at getting ourselves worked up.

Benjamin Franklin was never president. He was what we call a "Founding Father".

Just FYI.

Old Ben was too deviant to become president as his favorite weekend activity was going to whorehouses. He ejaculated inside one of his hoes, apparently making babby.

User avatar #278 to #270 - Deeticky (04/21/2013) [-]
He also liked himself some old ladies.

"Because in every Animal that walks upright, the Deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part: The Face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the Neck; then the Breast and Arms; the lower Parts continuing to the last as plump as ever: So that covering all above with a Basket, and regarding only what is below the Girdle, it is impossible of two Women to know an old from a young one. And as in the dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every Knack being by Practice capable of Improvement."

-Ben Franklin, in a letter giving advice about loving older women.
User avatar #461 to #261 - durkadurka (04/21/2013) [-]
You're exactly right with that sentiment. While this wasn't any sort of real loss of freedom, it does show what we will do/give to keep ourselves safe. It's human nature.

We walk a thin line when we try to provide security and maintain freedom. It's very easy to mess it up. I'd like to think we've done a decent job thus far.
User avatar #293 to #261 - lequigley (04/21/2013) [-]
also, concerning the pursuit of violent criminals, who while the police were chasing them were throwing homemade bombs out of their car and shooting back, it might be safer just to stay in doors. its not about giving up a little freedom its about not getting shot

Benjamin Franklin was never a President, but he was a founding father of the nation. And unfortunately there has been a large disconnect between our ideals and our actual politics since the inception of our country. But what nation does operate entirely upon it's ideals? That's just not possible with differing opinions and outside forces.

I'd say it's specific media outlets that try to make America look perfect. And we have had Presidents in the past who themselves have said " **** if I know" when it came to national issues. Namely, President Carter. And then the nation freaked the **** out. "If the President doesn't know what to do, what the hell is going to happen to us!?" Which prompted President Reagen to start the loooong tradition of denying that there are any problems in America at all.

we're gonna put this whole town under lockdown and won't hesitate to shoot you if you come out, but that's okay cause we brought some kids milk!

Was glad to be locked in. Not a fascist police state, it was a manhunt for a dangerous Chechen on the run in Watertown; they didn't want people on the street in case he either hurt them or they impeded police. Honestly couldn't be prouder to live in Boston right now. ****** awesome city.

Always afraid of the "impending police state", yet we love our cops and soldiers.

It's pretty clear you weren't given a choice of consent for them to search through your house. So far we know at least 2 people have been arrested from not allowing the police search their homes (excluding the people in the video, which seem they didn't have a choice and is unknown if they were arrested).
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin
Funny how a city whose citizens originally took up arms to fight for our liberities are now inhabited by statist who give it up. For what? A bomber? A bomber which the police didn't find until someone who went outside and found blood on their boat and reported it to the police?
In the words of a wise Asian "shamefur dispray"
#392 to #349 - tasomo (04/21/2013) [-]
Best part of that is if they had found the guy who was looking at his boat before he found the bomber, they'd have arrested him for violating the order to stay inside and would have most likely missed the bomber thereby increasing Boston's lockdown.

-They were not arrested, they were apprehended
-The Feds (which is the FBI) have had the power to search, interrogate, arrest whoever wherever however they want since 9/11. They are not breaking any laws, they are merely exercising the extent of their power
-We took up arms against a nation that forced themselves into our homes, pillaged the place, and would repeat in a near cyclic manner. This was a one time incident to catch a suspected terrorist.
-The Feds, police, and military largely work off human intelligence. While I was deployed, it was better to take intelligence from the local elders than rely on patrols. To catch a single man who had an 8 hour head start is an accomplishment

"When that boot of the state breaks down the door. It is more than a door that has been broken. That door is the thin line between fascism and liberty. Between the government and the people. Between freedom and tyranny. This line seems so strong so indestructible. But all It takes is a boot to shatter the line forever."
