    blown up by a terrorist on the loose?
    Were any of the denizens drinking coffee at the Dunkin Donuts arrested for not staying in their homes?
    Did you see the police arrest ONE PERSON (using caps is fun!) for being out of their home?

    •  Hon, moving the goal posts doesn't work. (0+ / 0-)

      They were ordered to stay in their homes:

      Police cornered Tsarnaev -- a naturalized U.S. citizen of Chechen origin -- around 7 p.m., less than an hour after police lifted a stay-indoors order for the city and its suburbs.

      It wasn't a suggestion.

      Show me the relevant law granting them this authority.

      The police created an atmosphere of fear so that they could "bring justice".

      "CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won," the Boston Police Department said on its Twitter account.
      The police are not empowered to do "justice".  That is what our legal system is allegedly supposed to do.  You know, charges, prosecution, judge, jury.
