The whole (over?)reaction from law enforcement to this has me very concerned. The fact that there isn't more outrage over this is disturbing. Clearly shows what the masses think of their rights. I understand that I wasn't there. I didn't have a group of militants knocking on my door asking to look around. I'm sure it was intimidating. And then they get an "impromptu parade" for their heavy handed tactics.
I hope others were filming as well and there can be a serious national discussion of the extent to which the police may go to track down and capture a fugitive under the protections of our 4th amendment. Was martial law declared there? Do they even have the right to make people prisoners in their own homes?
There was a picture on MSN of a heavily armored and armed vehicle with a whole military type squad hanging off it that had "Boston Police" painted on the front. The fact that ANY civilian PD has this kind of equipment scares me. That should be left for the National Guard; or don't give me a hard time when I want to acquire the same equipment!
