The events of the last week were unprecedented in the history of the United States.
After Islamic terrorists detonated two improvised explosive devices at a highly populated public venue, Americans bore witness to something they’d never seen before – a complete lock down of an entire American metropolitan area that can only be described as a de facto state of martial law.
Stores were closed. Train stations weren’t running. Armored vehicles patrolled neighborhood streets. Military helicopters circled overhead. All the while police and national guard troops performed sweeps across cookie cutter homes in suburban America.
The government and local law enforcement would have us believe that all of this was executed in full compliance of the law.
While that may be true, one can’t help but ask… under which laws, exactly, were the Department of Homeland Security, FBI, and local police operating?
Despite arguments to the contrary, the shocking footage below, recorded by a resident in Watertown, Massachusetts, highlights the fact that our domestic law enforcement agencies were no longer operating in a Constitutionally protected America. Rather, what you’ll see is a fully militarized, combat-ready detachment of police who are executing their orders in a war zone.
What you won’t see, however, is a warrant in the hands of law enforcement officials as they surround neighborhood homes and then force their innocent residents out at gunpoint.
In the video below we see what a police state looks like. Cops looking for a 19-year old supposed terrorist raid a house and force citizens out at gunpoint with their hands over the heads. If not for the distinctly American houses in the video, this could be Iraq or Afghanistan.
Pay attention, because this is now precedent. Under the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act, anyone deemed to be acting in a manner that seeks to subvert the laws of the United States can be declared a terrorist. So, the next time a criminal is on the loose in your town, you, too, may end up getting the same treatment as the peaceful residents of Boston.
