    I was proud to see the Boston police get applause after they captured that heartthrob terrorist.
    But almost immediately, people began to complain about the "police state" in Boston.

    They were looking for a terrorist who obviously was capable of anything.
    I've got nothing to hide, so feel free to search my house with a gun pointed at me. Hell, you can set up a command center in my living room if you need to.

    If you like a conspiracy, have a look at the photos of the backpacks which the bombers carried. There are plenty of surveillance videos of them walking by.

    Then, look at the backpacks photographed and identified as the bomb-holding backpacks. Look at the evidence photos.

    Not the same backpacks.

    ...like the police or not the fact is they put their lives on the line every day and run into danger against a stranger to protect a stranger at the drop of a hat. of course it sucks to get a ticket or a dui but thats your own damn fault. its got to be a hard job to deal with the human garbage and the victims they create every day.

    I'm willing to do what law enforcement tells me to do in the interest of safety and capturing a maniac who blew up some children.
    Oh no, I had to stay in my house! They're stripping me of my freedoms! Maybe I should just STFU for a while, do what I'm told and in a few hours, I can get back to my regular routine.

    this...

    I remember a lot of people wouldn't let the police in cause of the fear what they might find, and they would get arrested later on. I would imagine the police have bigger things to deal with them some joints or a bag of white powder.


    Same here. I use to work night shifts in a grocery store by myself. Lot of the time the police would pull up and see what I was doing I would walk by the windows with my janitorial equipment. Couple of times I was questioned, I answered with yes sir/no sir answers and was let go. Once got pulled over the cop said they got a report of a B&E and a van that left the scene matched my vehicle. They asked if they could search it, I said go nuts....they found nothing and let me go.

    A little patience and respect goes along way. Also I got nothing to hide. :)

    That's a bad precedent to set. Once it starts happening, they'll make it the law, and the next generation won't get the choice.
