Because they are stupid, arrogant, mind-controlled main-stream Americans with the SPOTLIGHT ON THEM... The next thing up or down (depending on your viewpoint) from fundamental Muslims... I blame the concept of god, hero worship and a diet of sport, war and coolade.. I watched with disgust.

I don't fault anyone calling it martial law if someone has another term for when the government, and police forces, armed with "assault" weapons out numbered the civilian unarmed population on the streets feel free to enlighten me


Anyone feel free.

The Laws are in place for this, without having the need to say "Martial Law". I am sure there's a few Executive Privileges and something in the Patriot Act that can supersede any freedoms we have. Americans gave up their freedoms with the Patriot Act. Its sad, but true.

Show of police force in full combat gear with tactical vehicles close to tanks, against the efficiency of a special services agency going after one single individual lacks comparison.

This was nothing but a show of force for the masses to get use to what is to come.



Yes, it lacks easy comparison because it was a "single individual" with the demonstrated intent and ability to injure hundreds of innocent civilians.

Sonnny1 we didn't gave away our freedoms at least I didn't sign anything in to that and I was no given choice of a vote on it either, they has been taken from us one piece at a time in the name of security and most Americans do no even question the motives but accept what is given to them as an excuse.

What? No, that is not martial law. "Officers armed with assault weapons outnumbering the civilian unarmed population on the streets" is the definition of a police force.



mar·tial adjective \ˈmär-shəl\ Definition of MARTIAL
1 : of, relating to, or suited for war or a warrior
2 : relating to an army or to military life
3 : experienced in or inclined to war : warlike — mar·tial·ly adverb

So nothing we saw was "war like" chasing down 2 individuals, gunning down one?

I disagree I think yesterday is a perfect example of how far America has fallen.

Sadly he could have done that when the opportunity was there, but killing 3 human beings and one failed bomb can never compare to the thousands than die during 9/11.

Obviously our so call security has failed us, but we have given more than that in name of that failed security and more will be taken away and we still are not safer now than the day before.

You'd only get this in America.
They do stuff like this all the time.....pretty strange ?

Nothing like a large dose of hyperbole to provoke the masses into a lynch mob mentality to successfully enforce a heavy police-state manhunt.

So long as the folks can wave their red, white, and blue under delusion of pride and grandeur... it's all good.

It seems TPTB have concocted for themselves the perfect recipe for success.

As a non-American standing on the outside looking in, I find this entire debacle of a charade over the past week to be... um... baffling, to say the least.

What in the world are you talking about? Police in every city in the world have used assault weapons to chase down violent criminals. That is why police exist.

you really have to wonder how kids with pipe bombs and Muslims with box cutters can fox the worlds most expensive and trained and equiped military...
while giving the government the perfect excuse to carry out their stated agendas

Then my reply to you both would be that simple apprehension of a suspect is the cause of 9000 federal and state agents going door to door?

An unusual justification, or do you feel it justified, since they didn't apprehend the suspect on their own.


Oh, I agree with you. Its insane. But........

The American public isn't going to stand up to it. Its obvious. Like I said, having Local Police doing their Job? I'm fine with that. Having an inept FBI, who I blame partially for this, anywhere near calling the shots? Preposterous. Letting FBI, Homeland Security or any other three word agency kick in doors, in the name of security? Insane.

Just remember though. Fear controlled the situation.

You can be pissed about it till your blue in the face, but it wont change how the majority will react to it. I remember the video of the lady in New Orleans being FORCED to give up her firearms, after Katrina. It still sickens me thinking about it." The people " have given up their rights. Period.

Sad.

Serious question: How many terrorists and casualties do you need before you're willing to have a citywide lockdown for a few hours while the suspects are dangerous and active? Is 10 terrorists enough? 500?

As an American living in the US me and many of my fellow ATS see this whole Boston drama for what it is, a show of force in the name of "for you security", is nince to know that others can see it too.

The police exist to catch people then be tried in court of law not die in a hail of full auto 5.56mm ball ammo.

You can speculate all you want, but that is not what happen in Boston, now because you are posting the question, how many lock-downs took in effect during 9/11, after two whole towers were demolished and the damage of the .Pentagon in Washington, in which thousand of people and children die.

No comparison at all, played anyway you want.

Do you think people pointing a gun at your head and threatening to shoot should be tried in a court of law before you can respond?

You have to fight for freedom...

Or

There will be someone trying to take it away.


When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. ~ Thomas Jefferson




People don't "fear" the government. They talk about "fearing" it.

Not to worried about getting shot at comes with the job.
