Did a few searches for this and nothing turned up, so if this has already been posted mods do your thing.
WATERTOWN, MA -- On Friday, April 19, 2013, during a manhunt for a bombing suspect, police and federal agents spent the day storming people's
homes and performing illegal searches. While it was unclear initially if the home searches were voluntary, it is now crystal clear that they were
absolutely NOT voluntary. Police were filmed ripping people from their homes at gunpoint, marching the residents out with their hands raised in
submission, and then storming the homes to perform their illegal searches.
I came across this liveleak video of police in Watertown forcing a family out of their house at gunpoint and proceeding to conduct what appears to be
an illegal (unwarranted) search.

Personally, I find this disgusting. I'm not going to make sensationalized connections to Nazi Germany, but was it really necessary to go door to door
parading people out of their homes, AT GUNPOINT? The first guy who comes out seems shocked, and I think I would be too; since when is this kind of
behavior allowed by the police?
Yes, the suspect was believed to be armed and dangerous, but did these cops have the authority to conduct these searches? Was Martial Law officially
declared? I remember the city being on lock down, but never heard any reports of Martial Law in place.
Ironically, they are being applauded for what a great job they did completely stomping on our constitutional rights. These unwarranted searches didn't
even lead them to the suspect, some observant citizen outside of their search zone did.
