Bill Maher: America Becoming Police State

Bill Maher Tears Into ‘Unprofessional’ Cops In Boston Manhunt, Says America Is Becoming A Police State
by Josh Feldman | 11:20 pm, April 26th, 2013

Bill Maher voiced some concerns tonight over the manhunt for the Boston bombing suspects last week and how much police presence there was in Boston and Watertown. Maher showed pictures of state and federal forces in Massachusetts, and cited them as evidence that America is becoming a police state, a point which got him some pushback from his panelists.

Actress Anna Deavere Smith said people already think there is a police state, given “stop and frisk” in New York, raising the question of who exactly it is that the police are meant to protect and serve. She said, “The police are beginning to act more like the military.” John Avlon said he thought the police response was an appropriate one.

What I would like to know is how can the stupid cops shoot that many times and have the kid just jump out of the boat alive and okay?


Love Hate for Bill Maher

He's such a hypocrite.

I love how a few shows back he declared there are just too much fvckn people on the planet, but then supports illegals immigrants that flock to this country. Sorry Bill, you can't have it both ways.

Funny thing is he doesn't

Funny thing is he doesn't believe in the 2nd Amendment but believe we live in a police state. How can a police state be stopped without the second amendment?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

in Britain the police used to

in Britain the police used to be unarmed.

It's possible using that approach might wake up the left - hey, stop arming the police with military weapons. The police in Britain used to be unarmed. We need gun control for the police. etc etc.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

I support gun control

like that.
