http://www.infowars.com/shocking-foo...by-swat-teams/The video, shot by a resident from their own house across the street, shows police barking orders at men and women as they order them at gunpoint to identify themselves, put their hands on their heads, and get out of their own home. They are then ordered to run down the street to be further frisked by police as scores of armed militarized cops look on.
Even a blind pig finds a truffle. Will the blind pig lamestream media give us this stinking mushroom, or eat it a la rice bowl politics and protecting their source.
And I think I can see those folks saying "thank you overlords for keeping my security foremost in your mind"
Two questions: (1) Who ordered the SS approach to the manhunt? (2) What did they do if nobody was home... break down their door?
"Exigent circumstances" do allow some deviations from the Constitutional dictates of 4A. However, "hot pursuit" is the most common - but possibly not the only - legally acceptable use of EC. I don't know that anybody has ever used the SS approach in an entire town before, and their actions wouldn't qualify as "hot pursuit". My 2¢. Pax...
testing the waters to see how the sheeple would comply. there is always a hidden agenda.
bang on my door telling me to get out at gunpoint will only serve to have my gun in hand and ask them where their warrant is. oh no warrant?> slam door. break it down and you will be catching lead.
HOPE FOR THE BEST, EXPECT THE WORST, PREPARE FOR WAR
Is there anyone in Boston with the stones to bring this into a court and force the police to try to justify what they did? Probably not in the Boston of Patriot's Day 2013.
There are other exigencies beside "hot pursuit." The most obvious example would be cries of pain or for help emanating from a home. An officer would have no idea what is going on, but under those circumstances entering (breaking, if necessary) would have otherwise been a 4A violation were it not for the exigency.
But, again, exigencies are very limited in scope--in both place an time. If an exigency goes on for hours, there is time to get a warrant. However, even that warrant will name a very narrow specific place and a very narrow list of items being searched for. Even under a judge's warrant, a whole town cannot (and, more importantly, should not) be locked down! Not for a minute, and certainly not for such an extended period of time.
Again, though, my primary concern is not that they did it. It is that the "people" of the Boston area went along. Shame on them.

So from people that were in Boston, none of them have said they were ordered to remain in their homes. They were asked, but no order was given. Apparently there were people that were out and about during the manhunt. If the people were afraid to leave their homes not because of fear of the suspects, and rather the fear of being shot at by police and other LEO, then there is a serious issue that needs to be addressed.
As far as the home searches go, from the one video I saw, that goes against our rights. How people didn't get angry with that is beyond me.
When people live in fear, they don't make the best decisions.
