  •  I have to ask: what provision of the Bill of (0+ / 0-)

    Rights do you believe was violated in Boston last week?  I'm honestly curious what people come up with.  Hint: the word "privacy" doesn't appear anywhere in the text of the Bill of Rights.  

    •  How about the fourth amendment (0+ / 0-)

      which covers the right to be secure in your own home against unreasonable searches and seizures?

      •  If people consent to searches, there's no 4th (0+ / 0-)

        Amendment violation.  No one was having their home forcibly searched.  Any more?

        •  Really: (0+ / 0-)

          Watch the g#*d_@n video and tell me no one was having their home forcibly searched.  

          I particularly liked the moment when one of the residents is exiting the house with his hands raised, he lowers his hands slightly and the cop nearest him shoves their gun at his face and barks "Hands UP!".  The terrified resident complies.  

          Yeah, this is a nice voluntary search, my ass.
