This is nice, I admit, but it doesn't justify what they did. Violating rights to catch one man isn't forgivable through one act of kindness. I'm sure police states around the world have these sort of stories. We just choose to ignore them because the actions of one man won't define the country.

how did they violate anyones rights by saying they should stay indoors while a guy with a gun was running around.
#13 to #11 - Womens Study Major (04/21/2013) [-]
That was perfectly reasonable, entering people's homes without the homeowners permission however, is not. Pointing an assault rifle in an innocent persons face and demanding to be let into their house is extremely unjustified.
User avatar #14 to #13 - pockyrin (04/21/2013) [-]
Well if they were entering people's homes while they weren't home, I'd say given the circumstances it was necessary, he might have been hiding out in a house and threaten/kill the family when they came home. However yea the second part no, pointing a gun into a families face is horrible.

"When a guy with a gun is running around"

Isn't people with guns pretty widespread in America?
Isn't the defensive line of any gun-owner "We have to be able to protect ourselves", but as soon as some guy with a gun who killed some people is running around, everyone has to hide in their houses?

After Katrina we were held up in our house, our area wasn't badly damaged and was not flooded. The military went around through the neighborhood and confiscated all the weapons. They confiscated our weapons and held us at gun point as if we were criminals.

All the guns were legal. And we never got ANY of them back. My dad lost his rifle that was passed down from his great grandfather. It was a civil war relic, the very weapon he carried on his back during that war.

tl;dr, it wasn't right. They had no business doing that to us or to anyone.

my dad's friend from new orleans was a police sniper during katrina. when people were looting the stores they announced over loud speakers that anyone out after dark would be shot. most people stayed out but they actually shot and killed dozens of people in the street who were looting stores.

I think the point is that the police did something they clearly didn't have to, just to help someone out a bit.
#388 to #378 - ManicalMayhem (04/21/2013) [-]
Of course that man went out of his way, and I do praise that he helped them in the situation, however how logical does it seem to lock down and create a martial law over 2 boys one of them barely a teenager.
#529 to #388 - Womens Study Major (04/22/2013) [-]
> those teenagers killed a security guard at a university
>engaged in a gunfight vs cops
>injured a few cops
>were throwing out explosives out the suv they stole
>kidnapped somebody and took their suv
>one teenager ran at the cops with a bomb strapped to his chest
NOPE I don't see a single reason why there would've been a lockdown. I mean besides the whole teenagers kidnapping people while throwing out explosives out the car window and strapping bombs to themselves.

****** you just went full retard.
User avatar #557 to #529 - ManicalMayhem (04/22/2013) [-]
oh yea cause cops never try and justify overreaction... So have you seen these explosives being chucked out of the SUV? of seen them kill that security officer? I'm not saying they did or didn't I'm just saying no one can know exactly what happened except people who were there, but no one could be there because the city was locked down.
User avatar #549 to #388 - defender (04/22/2013) [-]
well maybe because they had improvised explosives already shot two cops and a crap ton of ammo and blew up two bombs earlier in the week so I would think they took the correct route

lockdown? why were they in lockdown?
User avatar #251 to #206 - breadstickez (04/21/2013) [-]
You probably have googled it by now due to all the hate below, but just in case you didn't:

-Two men from Russia bombed the Boston Marathon in the US
-Once their identities were discovered they were believed to still be in the town, which caused a massive police search.
-After realizing their identities were public the two men robbed a store, killed an MIT police officer, and got into a shoot-out with US police involving explosives.
-During that shootout the older suspect was killed by police fire and the other suspect (his brother) ran over him to escape.
-The younger suspect escaped and was loose in the town of Watertown, causing the entire town to be put on complete lockdown to prevent anyone from leaving their homes and make it easier and safer to search for the second suspect.
-After a day in full lockdown the suspect was located in a person's boat in their yard, and arrested/taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Don't listen to the others, not everyone stays up to date on foreign news. Hope I helped :)

Chechnya is under Russia's rule, so many consider them Russian. Either works I suppose.
User avatar #290 to #251 - brenton (04/21/2013) [-]
-Officials have confirmed that they were not involved in the convenience store robbery. The younger one just came in to buy something earlier, then someone else coincidentally robbed the same store later.
-Officials have also confirmed that he escaped on foot after the shootout, did not use the car, and did not run over his brother.

That doesn't make any sense. It would be more accurate to say something like "Anyone who lives in Florida lives in the USA."

I didn't say that all Russians are Chechens, just that all Chechens are Russian.

The 8 month old baby I babysit pretty much relies on milk, and the older kids (3,4,8) WILL NOT sleep without chocolate milk. So while it's definitely not crucial to their survival, what the police did was very nice and could have been much more appreciated than just the fact that they could have cereal.

That's certainly not what I mean when I say it. Of course there are good cops, and of course the majority of them are decent people, but when you have an exception to a rule like that that leaves so much open to interpretation, there are people that are going to use it correctly, and then there are people who are going to abuse it entirely.
