Posted on 04/24/2013 10:12:21 AM PDT by KentuckyTim
The terrorist attack in Boston and ensuing events in Watertown had everyone on edge, but shocking new home video from Massachusetts show law enforcement officers trampling over the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution which guarantees The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
A video recently uploaded to YouTube by residents whose home was searched reveal that earlier accounts of voluntary searches were nothing more than an outright lie.

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.
Now is a wonderful time for some attorney to publish the legal basis for the police invading people’s homes with armed force.
I would say let the class action litigation begin!
The end justifies the means?
Thanks for the video...I just kept saying...OMG....OMG....OMG
I wonder, how many mosques did they enter and search vs churches and homes?
Or followed Biden's advice to fire a shotgun through the door...
More seriously, what would the authorities have done if someone demanded a warrant before allowing entry to the house. I suspect they would have just used force against the citizen at that point.
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.
Maybe the problem is that we have so many 'protected class' potential terrorists in our country that keeping up with them all is impossible.
I am reminded of this...
I know nothing says professional and courteous in my book like having an MP5 leveled at me and mine while being “escorted” from my home.
The “caretaker role” of the Massachusetts Police trumps your 4th Amendment right. I know this from a situation I had at my home. I have it in writing from a judge....
That’s the video that was disturbing one.
Here is another...
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.
