Knock Knock

Who's there?

"The police department. We're here to search your home. We have information that the people behind what just happened live in this area."

----------------

Has that thought run across your mind lately?

What would you do?

Politely tell them to get a search warrant signed by a judge?

Rudely tell them to kiss your royal behind, and go to hell...

Or...

Invite the boys in for a cup of coffee so long as they didn't shoot your dog?

Personally, I wouldn't answer the door and pretend nobody was home!

What scares me the most about what happened on April the 15th is how so many people in Boston got their 4th Amendment rights trampled upon by a sweeping police state apparatus because of two SUSPECTS that supposedly used very low tech materials (pressure cookers) to commit an act of murder.

No trial, no jury, no evidence...just conviction based on numerous conflicting reports, and the entire shutdown of a major American city.

Now just imagine this: a nuke goes off in the US.

Based upon what I have seen happen in Boston, a major precedent has been established. The entire country would be locked down.

What happens when they get away with box cutters and pressure cookers?

Hmmm...

Ron Paul didn't go too far, the police state did.

"Suspect number one and suspect number two."

Isn't that how the media dubbed them? They were SUSPECTS, and now one is dead and the other has already essentially been convicted in the court of public opinion courtesy of the not so mainstream anymore media.

Is it just me, or does it feel like the entire rule of law rooted in the United States Constitution's Bill of Rights just got thrown into a Reichstag fire?

Not answering door pretend not here

Works.

The problem isn't the government

...it's the people that allow this to happen.

Had Boston erupted in demonstrations and protests (notice I did not say riots) or demonstrate some sort of push back it might have given the govt something to think about.

Now, I don't buy for a second people were actually gathering in the street for these impromptu patriotic flag dances as the media would have you believe, but I do believe Boston citizens dropped the ball.

The govt pushed and the people didn't push back. Fail.

I would have been sitting on the front porch drinking...

whatever adult beverages I had on hand.

When they told me to go back inside, I would have told them to kiss my inalienable rights holding ass. They could whoop my ass and see me in court if they wished.

Yes, I will defend myself thank you very much. Beer me please!

I'm not scared of a 19 year old punk (or whoever he is as I do not want to pass more judgement until I know he was actually responsible beyond a shadow of a doubt for doing the crimes he has allegedly been charged), or if other people were involved. The point is we don't need our local police, FBI and every other 3 letter agency to spend millions of dollars to protect us. We should take our chances and as it turned out, one local resident did the discovery that led to finding the suspect. It took a ridiculous waste of resources to demonstrate the power elite had nothing under control to save us from any perceived terror. Government waste at its pinnacle.

beephree

we are definately

not in Kansas anymore.

Would they even knock?

That's my question. Cops are starting to do raids here at 4 o'clock in the morning. People are sound asleep and wake up with someone screaming in their face and a gun pointed at their head.

"Did they knock?"
"I don't know, I was asleep."

"Personally, I wouldn't

answer the door and pretend nobody was home!"

That's what I would do but I've been thinking about buying this doormat.

Doormat

"Don't come back WITHOUT a warrant"

to spin it a little.
