I wonder how many would have died if residents had met the Police at the door with a shotgun?
Lock me in my house and tell me that dangerous persons are in the neighborhood, and I would have answered the door by sticking a gun barrel in someones face.
This video  clearly shows a case where government was so frantic to find someone that it was willing to unilaterally suspend the law. Why? Recall a similar mindset during the recent manhunt for cop-killer Christopher Dorner.
Police even shot up a pickup truck carrying two women delivering newspapers. In that case, local and state government gave the police officers involved a
From the LA Times article  on the $4.2 million settlement paid to the victims:
“LAPD Chief Charlie Beck called the shooting “a tragic misinterpretation” by officers working under “incredible tension” hours after Dorner allegedly shot police officers.”
This is how it works folks. Dorner was on a vendetta against the Los Angeles police department. Government itself was the part who was threatened. When government is treatened, government will excuse far more egregious behavior than it would ever tolerate from those citizens within its jurisdiction.
The two Boston Bombers where a threat to local and state government. That is why government gave itself a pass. They also did not want to appear incompetent to the taxpayers. Only third was public safety an issue.
So citizens get terrorized multiple times: by the original act and then by the authorities whose rage is palpable, and even then by the media who use the incident to spin up new versions of old memes by which The Agenda is advanced.
 LA Times: Women’s settlement with LAPD in Dorner case worth $4.2 million.
Thanks for the video...I just kept saying...OMG....OMG....OMG
I wonder how things would’ve been different had the authorities treated Tamerlan Tsarnaev with the kind of aggressive suspicion prior to the bombing that they treat average citizens afterwards.
Is that your website and articles you have written that your are posting on FR?
There was one disturbing video that I saw, but from reports on the ground, the police were very professional, courteous, and didn’t act unconstitutionally. The whole Shelter In Place thing was bullshit, though.
It happened during Katrina. Homeowners that remained in their home to protect it were thrown to the ground and disarmed when the police asked if they had any weapons.
Seriously!? This is what has people's panties in a wad??
How about the TSA? The TSA has been violating the 4th Amendment since their inception and NO ONE has complained about it, we just meekly subject ourselves to whatever crap they make up so that we won't miss our flight!
We might want to reconsider our selective outrage!
Is there any evidence
that during the Watertown search legally owned firearms were seized or confiscated from anyone?
Was anyone arrested anywhere in Watertown for armed defense of their residence?
This whole thing is disturbing on so many levels especially when you realize that the odds of him entering any of the occupied homes was virtually nil and if they had set up a perimeter with those teams and begun a systematic search of everything OUTSIDE of those residences instead of entering and occupying homes they would more than likely have found him in short order. But instead they are going everywhere where he was not likely to be — and for what reason.
Well, they are the ultimate M@$$holes...unionthug RATcops.
