Your post is just another simple loaded question. There was no martial law. People cheered because they were happy the d bag was caught. Sometimes the answer is just that simple.


To whom are you referring, and would you like to expand on your statements, or do you just 'hit and run' with pithy opinion? Please engage.

It was mindboggling disproportionate! I think the entire world is laughing at america since yesterday and I am being serious here.

Cordone off a few blocks here and there? Sure why not. But not the entire city. It sends the signal to everyone that americans are weak, their police is "weak"(more like militarised police thugs), and their leaders are even weaker.


What I find mindboggling is the selfsame people who decry the Patriot Act and DHS are the ones now cheering and calling them heroes.

It's all about fear. The same mindset that screams to take away guns live in fear that someone will attack them and they need and cheer for the DHS and closing off a city.
The are the ones who won't buy a fire extinguisher and only rely on the fire department.

Once again, can you give me proof that any of that happened? Because to me, it seems like you're getting this info from MSM.

The public should be angry that they were forced to stay home for an entire day just to find one 19 year old criminal. Unbelievable that people are cheering the police after having to cower in their homes and lose wages and business for an entire day. 7 square miles locked down for one guy.
Great job.

Prove it? The only reason the FBI released the photos of the suspects was because they didn't know the location/identity of them. If they had known their identities, you can bet your life that you would have never seen those photos.

Only when they obtained security footage of the Shell gas station (where they let out the Mercedes driver out) and the Bank of America (where they used the driver's card) did they have better photos of the suspect and then subsequently ID him.

Haha, yeah! I'd like to see a violent 19-year-old drive across seven miles in just ONE day! NOT POSSIBLE.

It wasn't even police or military that found him!! It was a citizen. This whole lock down was ridiculous. "Lock down" is a term used in prisons, where they put everyone into their cells because of a security threat.

"Lock down" is becoming more of a term we hear when it comes to schools as well, "locking down" on "lock down". This term originated in the PRISON system.

As I have said before, I'm glad I got out of the city. Country folks here my part of the country would not have cowered into our homes and allowed ourselves to get bullied by police. Everyone here is talking about that and saying so. I find it shocking that people followed along with everything they were told to do, and I'm sure tptb were thrilled with it.

Because most liberals belong to the democrat party and most conservatives belong to the republican party. THEY ARE SHEEP! Anyone that votes for the lesser of evil is a sheep. There are plenty of parties to vote for and one only needs to have eyes, they don't have to have 20-20 vision either, do they?

"Liberals" won the past two elections and ALL IS WELL for 90% of them. They will look the other way against monsato protection act, the boston bombings, the drones and the militarisation of the police, the continuation of proxy wars in the middle east, etc.

When republicans were in office didn't EVERYONE give bush a free pass?? Come on, be honest here. To this day they won't even admit 9-11 was an inside job. At least the mainstream republicans. The alex jones, ron paul, glen beck types are different though, and I tip my hat off to them. They are tea party type.

As for the unorthodox liberals and progressives, I AM ONE OF THEM! I am liberal here, progressive there and conservative elsewhere. I plan on voting constitution party or spusa from now on. CP is somewhat conservative on most issues and SPUSA is somewhat progressive. But statism itself is not the problem if applied in the correct fashion.

Americans are witnesses to mass-relief, because Boston experienced a small instance of what war looks like, and this tragedy has implications far beyond many peoples experience

This is a tragedy of epic proportions, with meanings that will affect everyone, and Boston deserves any outlet that will express their feelings, in this time of tragedy

The human side of misery will continue for our fellow Americans who are recuperating, and everyone should recognize that feelings mean more than what we think or may attribute to them

The side that the power of ATS and its users can provide is a concerted effort to use its abilities to produce some answers that will explain the who, what, and why ? to serve many Americans something that will put some light, r inspire others to seek the truth

A common acceptance from everything that we can read and know, is that many people are still asleep, and unaware that the events are part of a warning that something is coming closer to the land of the free

Some people are aware and can see it in the distance, and too some it appears that it is here or coming at the speed of light

For those who are unaware of a practice of the ancient past when Lords and Kings faced each other on a battlefield, and if they were stuck in a stalemate they could only hurl verbal assaults, and they would always end it with a warning of what they would do, and use the battlefield as an example of their might

It appears that everyone believes that something beyond these brothers has brought this tragedy on Americans and our land, and the example above demonstrates a hidden threat and its message is perfectly clear

This enemy would have to be ancient to use a pre-Talmudic method of threat, and there are numerous instances where a threat was made, and it subsequently occurred after that

Join these people together to empower those who cannot, and use the technology to drill to the core, it is the least that can be done to benefit America in search of the truth

The video I saw was mostly of college-aged people. College kids want any excuse to get outside and party. I doubt the people whose houses were searched without warrants and that were treated like terror suspects were not chanting. And why the EFF would you congregate in mass after a terrorist attack that targeted a mass gathering when there is potentially a larger cell still at large????

ya know as far as the “lockdown” , just come to think of it, and it might make things a bit more understandable. While this is the first time for a police action, Boston does a “stay in your homes request” just about every winter. It’s not new for Boston.

If there is a snow bad enough the governor puts out a request for business to shut down send their people home and for people to stay home till the plows get the streets clear. Just about everyone does and it really helps the snow recovery. Its basically a snow day.

Just thought I would throw that in there because I just realized people in other parts of the world may not understand that it just was not that weird or shocking thing for the city to request.

In saudi arabia which is a monarchy we see people shooting ak-47s like crazy as a form of celebration.

Can people imagine what would happen in america or europe if this happened, even in the rural areas? They would be taken to the nearest padded hospital and locked up for at least 10 years as lunatics in the fullest of sense.

Sometimes too much law and order is bad imo. Civility should have limits. Kids who fart in class are known to get suspended.

And exactly how does that prove that they are the bombers? If you show me a video of the two boys dropping a bag, and the explosions follows right after with the center being the bag, then I'll believe you. But for now, all I see is people saying this and that, without any actual proof.

If I only believed things when someone showed me a video of the event, I wouldn't believe in my own birth. And I also wouldn't believe in any event that occurred before 1890.

Do people tend to videotape you every time you place a bag on the ground? Are you a movie star?

You're comparing 9/11 to a few people being killed by a pressure cooker?
reply to post by DPrice
 


A pressure cooker? Do you really believe that sh*t? Well, I guess it's a familiar IED by which to determine 'who did it', based on previous case and experience.
Hmm......yeah, right.

A photo of a mangled pressure cooker, posted by press outlets all over the world, shows the pressure-cooker plug and, near it, one small round hole, machined apparently by the manufacturer. But...no other small holes. I see discolorations but not dozens or hundreds of holes.

Yet we are told that the Marathon bombs were placed inside pressure cookers and packed with nails and ball bearings. If that were true, the explosions would have created many, many small holes as the inserted shrapnel flew through the cooker and out in every direction.

In the official press photo, there are no such holes. How is that possible?

In fact, since a large piece of the pressure cooker is missing, it appears that the explosive was a shaped charge of some kind. Part of the cooker is mangled but intact; another part is missing, presumably revealing in which direction the shock wave traveled.

Charges are shaped when they are put in place, because the maker wants the explosion to be vectored; otherwise, the explosion will exit its confined space spherically, equally, in all directions.

A shaped charge would strongly suggest a pro at work, not an amateur who built the device in his kitchen. In which case, we would be looking at a whole different scenario.

You might find this interesting.

You may also find this interesting, if not a little disturbing. It is a photo (pre-autopsy) of the first brother killed in the police pursuit. There is one large wound on him which could use some explaining (other than the gun shot wounds).
WARNING: Graphic picture.

Here is raw footage of the Bomber hiding in the boat, then setting off some sort of explosive. The police have a bomb robot opening the boat cover to expose the bomber.

"then setting off some sort of explosive"

No, that's not the "bomber" setting off some sort of explosive. That's the police tossing a flash grenade into the boat.

It's clearly legal for municipal police to search nearby homes in pursuit of a violent criminal on the loose when they have consent, probable cause, or a warrant. From this gentleman's account, it sounds like they had both consent and probable cause. This sort of police activity has probably happened dozens of times per day for the last several decades. It's actually been one of the main functions of a police force since the dawn of civilization.
