Remember this.  It is important.

Also remember he doesn’t have an issue with putting weapons of war on the streets of other countries.

While we were sleeping, the police state came to America and made itself comfortable

Hi. Excuse me. 

While I’m sure this has already been corrected in other posts, I’d like to say a few words.

These pictures are from when the Boston Marathon bomber was in a Watertown neighborhood.  Specifically, mine.  I took pictures identical to it out my bedroom window while this was happening.  SWAT was there protecting us because there was a literal mass-murdered hiding in our neighborhood, equipped with bombs and other weapons.  It was the most terrifying 24 hours of my life so far and while I don’t like to relive it, I did feel safer knowing the police and SWAT was doing everything they could to protect my neighbors, my friends and I.  

The officers I spoke to were polite and unobtrusive.  They even got groceries for some families who had small children while we were in lockdown.  They were organized and professional.  I am extremely grateful for their service.

These are NOT pictures of a police state. 

Please do a little research before making a post like this.

SHOT DOWN

And yet it is was still a mind-boggling display of police state paranoia, incompetence, and unnecessary show of force displays in recent history. To catch a man that had not actually been declared guilty by trial, and was found bleeding to death in a boat(not found by the actual police).

Oh and they weren’t all police. Most were National Guard, denoted by the fact that they had desert tan HMMWVs and soliders in UCP with mil-spec M4A1s. They deployed MRAP(Mine Resistant, Ambush Protected) vehicles, armored LAVs(Light Assault Vehicles) and APCs, snipers in people’s backyards and roofs, and locked down an entire city to find ONE person, and declared martial law, something that didn’t even happen on 9/11.

Not only did police legally overstep their bounds by the fact that this manhunt EXISTED, but we just let it happen. If police brutality had been a thing(and it was, on numerous occasions), what could you do about it? You are surround by SOLDIERS, with fully-automatic carbines and assault vehicles with 20mm cannons and 12.7mm heavy machine guns mounted on them. That was not a police manhunt, that was a military manhunt. The National Guard, SWAT, FBI, ATF, and all the related alphabet agencies and paramilitaries were out there, searching every single building in an urban center to find a single man. Please explain to me how that is legal. Go for it. It’s not. 

I’m glad that you feel safe and complacent in this police state. Because you are in the exact state of mind that the government wants you in. I, for one, trust nothing the government says or does anymore. The boston manhunt was a fucking test, to see how willing a citizen is to give up their rights and freedoms in the name of safety. And you passed that test flawlessly.

^knight0fSpace has some big issues… Conspiracy theorists annoy me to no end.

"Why do you do these things to me?"

That is the face of an animal who understands not mere rage, but the thirst for vengeance.
