There's a difference in that they were looking for a specific guy who had guns, weaponry, had killed and injured dozens, and shot a cop.

My point is that just because you were fine with this and didn't consider it oppressive doesn't mean anything. Most Germans, at least until the war started going badly and things really turned to **** , didn't consider the Nazi state oppressive.

are you seriously comparing this to nazism?
User avatar #347 to #341 - elcreepo (04/21/2013) [-]
This was nothing like the Nazis! There was a killer on the loose!

If this had been something that just happened out of the blue with no reasoning, I'd likely agree with you. Or if they were still patrolling the streets now, I'd agree with you.

But they aren't.

I'm not saying it's anything like the Nazis. It's obviously nowhere near as bad. Let me clarify, my point is that just because some people don't consider it an authoritarian, oppressive measure doesn't mean it isn't. It obviously is. You consider it a necessary measure or not, and that's open to debate. But a police lockdown, whether justified or not, is authoritarian by nature.

it's only oppression if you feel oppressed.

There are good cops and bad cops - Many are just decent people just doing their jobs, and we can all laugh at what's basically a "Grown-Ups Field Trip" for Boston right now - but don't forget that there are plenty of bad cops ******* **** up, shooting/beating people, and if the **** ever Hits The Fan, "They Are Nice Guys Just Doing Their Job" won't be a great excuse for what they do to the populace.

Have you already forgotten about the Chris Dorner rampage?

I know there are bad cops, but from my experience we were treated nicely.

Plus the argument that it was a police state is entirely ridiculous. Police states tend to be far more brutal, corrupt and permanent than this.

I'm not going to lie, I was terrified the whole time, and I definitely was relieved when the cops were around and making sure the guy wasn't hiding in my home.

Yeah I'll let the trained professionals handle it.

Okay.. stop... stop.

Let's go over this, step by step....

> The Chechan is supposedly running 'round your neighborhood, right?
> So, he breaks into your house to hide, and he's armed with 'Bombs and a Machine Gun', he's gonna kill you, THEN hide in your house.
> SO IF YOU ARE ALREADY DEAD, WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU "leaving up to the professionals"?!? YOU'RE ALREADY DEAD!!

My friend, you are THE PORTRAIT of the modern-day sissy-man.

Grow some balls.
> Get a gun. Learn how to use it. Defend your home. Remember: "When seconds count, the Police are only minutes away."
> Don't let 'Officers Smiley' into your house so easily. Do you realize you willingly allowed your Constitutional Right to privacy to be bent over a barrel and sodomized right in front of you? Oh wait - you don't even care.

And consider this - The authorities shut down AN ENTIRE CITY because of one (two) little criminals - Since when have we ever done that before!?!

Wake up, dude. This was a test to see how far the American Public would let the Police go in violating their rights during a 'crisis', and sissies like you showed them they can do whatever the **** they want!

I didn't have to write this mini-essay: I'm letting you know this for your own good. Take it for what it's worth.

The media is not reporting on anything but these two videos convey the contrary.

Again. Do you believe everything you see on the internet?

Where you in Boston? Where you put under the temporary lockdown? No? Okay then.
#318 to #314 - John Cena (04/21/2013) [-]
The first video is an eyewitness account and we can actually see that he lives in Boston, unlike you.

The second video shows the cops barging into a house and taking its occupants out at gunpoint.

"Eye witness account" with no proof. The guy is just another tard spewing out his opinion.

The second is a family that failed to comply with police orders. During a time of severe threat such force can be utilized, and families were warned that the police MUST enter and search every home in the area.
