This chilling video floating around the web demonstrates what a terrible scene it was in Boston and Watertown for those who believe the Constitution is still alive and well in America. While Boston can certainly claim mental strength and resolve in the face of terrorism, the city, and liberty, were brought to its knees  following the Marathon bombings.

As a reminder of what happened last week in Boston, full scale martial law was put in place. Citizens were told to stay in their homes. They were told not to travel to and from businesses, and not to open their businesses. The economy was completely shut down. Let’s be clear, the 2nd Amendment and the 4th Amendment did not exist in Boston last week (arguably, the 2nd Amendment has been ignored in Boston for some time now). Law enforcement claims this was all “voluntary” lockdown, but this citizen video shows a much different story.

In the following video we see SWAT teams pounding on the door of a home in Boston. The residents are yanked out at gun point, with their arms in the air, then sent running down the street to other teams of officers waiting to pat them down and search their person.

The 4th Amendment to the Constitution reads as follows.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

What probable cause existed here? Did the militarized security forces have evidence the terrorists were in the home or being assisted by the occupants? Was there a warrant for arrest or entry into the home?

We would all like to know.

Remaining questions regarding the Boston Bombing Fiasco:

1) I find it amazing how easy it was for the government to shut down a city and totally take control. While the 2 guys were definitely bad news, I find it disturbing that within 24 hours a city like Boston and Watertown became a police state and basically submitted to martial law for a single 19 year old kid!

2) If you had a suspected murderer or terrorist on the loose in your neighborhood and you were instructed to stay inside, wouldn’t you like to be armed? 10 bullets or 30? This question goes out to those who support restricting the second amendment.

3) If you live in one of the neighborhoods the police were searching Friday, would you refuse to let them search your house without a warrant? I would say they would really need a warrant, unless the Constitution can suddenly be suspended at “certain times.”

4) The events in Boston are a prime example as to why it is a good idea to “prep”. I wonder how many people were stuck in their homes with little or no food. Think about that a minute before calling people nuts for doing so. Unless you are preparing for the alien lizard takeover, then you might be a little nutters.
