Gonna have to disagree here, Cosmo. The Boston Bombing was an unfortunate sign that indeed we are closer to a para-military style police force than we would care to admit. 2 guys, 2 guys with a home made bomb caused a good deal of Boston to shut down while cops in armored vehicles and outfitted like the military went up and down the streets pulling people out of their houses without any warrants. Most of the country cheered the effort, sadly.
There have been worse scenarios than the Boston bombing and nothing like what we saw with the Cops in Boston ever happened before. I mean this is a scary ordeal. People were pulled out of their homes at gun point without a warrant. There is no justification for that. We are a free society and warrants and laws supporting warrants have to be followed or we become the USSR.
