Personally, I have a huge problem with shutting down a region of ONE MILLION PEOPLE, businesses, transportation system....just because you're looking for one guy.
Here, people were expected to allow government troops in full COMMANDO attire, into their homes with no warrant....where no crime had been committed. That's bullsh*t.
And didn't miss the irony that immediately after they "allowed" people to go outside....a private citizen called 911 and was responsible for locating him hiding out in a shrink-wrapped sailboat in the back yard.
And furthermore, the Boston Law Enforcement was pulled off the case...it was taken over by the FEDS....their Hostage Recovery Teams (HRT). So thank the FBI and DHS...ugh!
That exercise of "mini" Martial Law will not be the last time it's invoked....they can use it should they ever want to comb the block for firearms, etc..
