Martial Law Increases Donut Consumption

As more information is revealed surrounding the events which led to a proud United States city degenerating into a police state, the more inept and ineffective the “authorities” involved appear.

As Friday’s events unfolded, it was extremely disturbing to see innocent civilians made prisoners in their own homes and others escorted off their property at gun point. In the aftermath of the occupation, hindsight has revealed the most surprising part to be the suspects hiding location. The fugitive responsible for the increased police presence hid only 2/10s of a mile from the stolen vehicle he abandoned just hours earlier. The Daily Kos had the following insight:

It turns out that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 19-year old suspect in the Boston bombing, was eventually found near the center of the 20-block search perimeter in Watertown.
The night before, he had driven the hijacked SUV just 4/10ths of a mile from the gun battle with police. He then walked or ran about 2/10ths of a mile to the backyard at 67 Franklin Street.
In other words, he was captured only a few blocks (a 4-minute walk) from where he dumped his getaway car, right where the police spent the next day looking for him.

Why the heck did the police not find the suspect sooner? One could assume that the abandoned “getaway car” was most likely very close to the center of the 20 block perimeter that cops had partitioned off in order to enforce marital law. As we now know, the suspect was not found until martial law was lifted, and civilians were allowed to leave their houses.

Based on a report UPI obtained from the Boston Globe, we know that the authorities cannot blame the ineffectiveness of their search on hunger. Select Dunkin’ Donuts were forced to remain open to provide free and unlimited access to donuts and coffee.

Hmm, so I followed each link

Hmm, so I followed each link to the source UPI where there was no mention of any store forced to open and/or provide free food/drinks. It is kind of difficult to bash conventional media sources when our own are not being credible.

Directly from UPI

"At the direction of authorities, select Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in the Boston area are open to take care of needs of law enforcement and first responders," company spokeswoman Lindsay Harrington said in an email

How much more clearly can it be stated that authorities forced Dunkin' Donuts to remain open?

Yeah, that's a bit of a

Yeah, that's a bit of a stretch. I chastise the media for putting words in peoples mouths so why hold our own to any less of a standard. Waiting on a reply from Dunkin Donuts as we speak.

Is that supposed to scare me?

They were directed to remain open. How much more black and white does it get? Why didn't they direct Starbucks to remain open or 7 11? Why is the State directing any business on their hours of operation? How are you not seeing the danger with this practice? It's in violation of the 3rd amendment to the Bill of Rights, as stated below.

In regards to your "supposed

In regards to your "supposed to scare me" comment. WTF is that suppose to mean? Unless presenting the facts scares you then no. If you are scared of the facts then, why?

The whole vibe of this

The whole vibe of this article is insinuating that Dunkin was forced to stay open and give the police food. I got the reply from Dunkin Donuts today and that is completely false. Looks like yellow journalism strikes again. They did so because they chose to do so. As to other establishments not being allowed to open, of course I disagree with that. However I am curious, did anyone disregard the request and if so were they punished?

so Dunkin Donuts

So Dunkin' Donuts was not "directed by authorities" to remain open? Either the person you talked to is a liar or their spokesperson quoted in my source article is a liar. You can't have it both ways. There is a big difference between "directed" and "requested". Please find yourself a dictionary.

Free Food Drinks

Also directly from UPI:
For those involved in the manhunt, coffee and donuts were on the house for the day Friday. The few stragglers from the public who came in were also served, the newspaper said.

Oh yeah, so from this we

Oh yeah, so from this we gather that the police just came in an confiscated food and drink. I am not saying that them being told to open didn't happen but let's not report it until we know the facts. Leave the rumor and innuendo to the mass media.

I never said

I never said the cops came in and confiscated food.

"For those involved in the manhunt, coffee and donuts were on the house for the day Friday."

Once again. Black and white. Do you think this gives Dunkin' Donuts an unfair advantage over Starbuck or 7 11 in the future? Does it give them a disadvantage because they gave food away for free and their competitor's inventories were untouched? This is direct intervention by the State into the business practices of a private business. What are you missing?

I once asked a cop from NJ

I once asked a cop from NJ about donuts. She said that yes, many of them do indeed eat alot of donuts. haha So the stereotype isnt all that incorrect.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

There goes the last intact amendment.

Number three - Prohibitting , in peacetime or wartime, the quartering of soldiers in private homes (business' in this case) without the owner's consent.

Holy Schmoley

Man that's a good point that didn't even occur to me..I've always figured the "quartering soldiers" was one we woudn't have to worry about but...this sure seems like a violation of the 3rd!

"The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them." - Patrick Henry

Something here is inaccurate...

I don't know where they set up the 20 block perimeter, but the suspect was found outside of it. Either the police set up the perimeter in the wrong spot or he was not found .2 miles from the vehicle.

I came to the same conclusion,

but didn't want to delve into that aspect for this piece. The focus of this article is to highlight how absurd it is that authorities comandeered the donut industry under martial law.
With regards to the police chief saying the suspect was outside their perimeter, it seems that the police are either not telling the truth or they set up the perimeter to exclude a location that was 2/10 a mile from where the car was dropped. Both bad. Or as SNL Chris Farley would say, "maybe it's something crazy that we don't even know about."

Perhaps we, as Liberty Lovers,

should all endeavor to open doughnut shops across the entire nation in order to have a way to incapacitate all the storm troopers when the time is upon us. Kind of like "beating your doughnuts into swords".

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.
