You may already know my feelings on the subject, but I was surprised to see foreign press acknowledging the over-the-top police state tactics were used in the search for a single stoner terrorist.
The Daily Mail headline reads:
Fresh videos of this affront to liberty are popping up with regularity now. Here’s another one.
We’re supposed to accept this as the “new normal?”
The Daily Mail shows just some of the photos of Watertown citizens being forces from their homes, but missed the cop in a armored vehicle’s gun turret pointing a rifle at a citizen that dared photograph their thuggish actions.
None of these goons will be reprimanded for their behavior, and it will happen again.
Police commanders will be given a pep talk before their next armed incursion against the citizenry, telling their rank-and-file officers that pointing guns in the faces of children is protecting them, and most of these cops will chose to believe it, all of whom consider themselves “protectors.” It’s easier for them to “go along to get along” than admit they’re becoming the execution arm of the state’s brute force mentality.
Here’s how they rationalize it. In fact, some cops that post here already have.
It’s getting bad, folks, and faster than I ever expected.
