One upon a time, in a nation far away, there used to be a 4th Amendment requirement for search warrants before government agents invaded your yard, or garage, or your home.
Welcome to the new police state, where the government uses the excuse of the hunt for a single 19-year-old stoner terrorist to order 1 million people to stay in their homes for 20 hours, shut down all public transportation in and out of the city, and violate a list of civil rights a mile long.
Sadly, they’ve proven they are all to happy to point an automatic weapon at your face if you dare to dissent.
I find the citizenry’s willingness to accept this sort of police state far more worrisome than any terrorist cell with home brewed bombs. A terrorist can only take a handful of lives.
A government that refuses to respect its citizens is capable of far more gruesome tyranny, as the mass graves of 262 million murdered by their own governments in 20th Century democides grimly attests.
