  •  It Didn't Take This Long (5+ / 0-)

    Police State Wanker Numero Uno posted a diary very similar to this one (with pictures and everything) before the suspects were apprehended.

    There's reality and there's fantasy.  I appreciate that the people of Boston had to experience the former, and the armchair jerkoffs who want to lecture you about how you're sheeple baa-ing away your civil liberties experience the latter.

      when they deliberately make false statements to try and enhance the fear they're trying to elicit; e.g., every one of them has claimed that Bostonians were ORDERED to stay in their homes.  People who weren't local may not know that that wasn't the case, that citizens were merely asked to do so ... and many citizens went about their business anyway.

      Also, I'm just not buying the claim that it's now been proven that a police state can materialize as the result of one bad order by one bad person having the power to direct police to do anything.  Boston cops (and those who aided them) did their jobs because it was understood what the goal was: find the bombers.  I can't imagine any police officer would help take over a city at the whim of a power-mad political leader when no identifiable threat existed.  They'd quit or call in sick or something, they wouldn't allow themselves to be part of anything so heinous.
