From Lexington Green to Cowering in the Corner: Disarmed Boston 'Shelters in Place'

Welcome, Free North CarolinaBroken Patriot, and Angry Mike's Hood readers!

(Multiple updates throughout post)

UPDATE #12, 4/23: A liberal woman, previously a self-admitted hoplophobe, caught in the government raid of Boston, suddenly woke up to the obvious truth:

How I Evolved on Guns During the #BostonPoliceScanner Manhunt

Boston-area residents were told to “shelter-in-place.”[...]    I realized at that moment that the police cannot protect me from the Dzhokhar Tsarnaevs of the world. [...] 
In the middle of that night listening to the Boston police scanner, I evolved.
I realized right then that if I were holed up in my house while a cold-blooded terrorist roamed my neighborhood, I wouldn't want to be a sitting duck with only a deadbolt lock between me and an armed intruder. There are not enough police and they cannot come to my rescue quickly enough. They carry guns to protect themselves, not me. I knew at that instant if Dzhokhar Tsarnaev showed up at my door while I was “sheltered-in-place” and aimed a gun at my head and only one of us would live, I could pull the trigger.
I’m shopping for guns this week. I've been told a 12-gauge shotgun is a good choice for home protection, but I’m open to suggestions.
(emphasis mine, Ol' Backwoods)

Get an AR-15.  Oh, wait, they won't let you have one.

Still, I'm glad this lady and her family are going to be keeping a gun at home now.  I believe liberals could be free men, if only they would wake up to reality, like this lady did.


UPDATE #11, 4/23: Now the Obama administration's mouthpieces are trying to say that the Rape of Watertown's Rights wasn't illegal, because it was all voluntary.

Boston's Door-to-Door Searches Weren't Illegal,
Even Though They Looked Bad


Right, sure it was voluntary, with the police waving around M4's in a populace of disarmed sheeple who have been taught since they were born to fear and hate guns. Also, since the public school system has made sure that the public, by and large, does not know its Constitutional rights, most people in Watertown just complied with the police's orders.  Effectively, you have no rights if you don't know what they are.

The sheeple at the Atlantic can blather on about how the searches were "voluntary", but one thing about them certainly makes them unconstitutional: the police had no PROBABLE CAUSE that the terrorist was in any particular house.  There was no "hot pursuit"; the terrorist wasn't seen going into a house.   Heck, a RESIDENT to Watertown, not the jackbooted police, found Doogie the Terrorist in his boat!

Pieces like this one in the Atlantic are doing their best to convey: this is the new normal.  You sheep can and will be ordered around by the Gestapo, err, the police, any time and any where they feel like it.  And since the so-called "blue" states (really Communist Red) are by and large disarmed, they will do nothing about it.

Again, like I've been saying, THIS IS NOT THE REAL AMERICA.

Meanwhile, it took the BRITISH press to report the truth of what happened in Obamamerica:


The controversial moment SWAT teams ordered innocent neighbors out of their houses at GUNPOINT during door-to-door searches for the Boston bomber


UPDATE #10, 4/21: INCREDIBLE video of the warrantless violation of the rights of the people of Boston by the kind of standing armies our Founders feared and hated!  The 3rd, 4th, and 5th Amendments are GONE, folks.

(sorry, YouTube has yanked the video. Big, big surprise, eh?)

This guy was bullied into letting the cops into his house.  NO WARRANT.  "Just your orders, right?" he said to the police.  The Nuremberg defense?  Really?


Jackbooted thugs doing their deeds against innocent citizens.


This is Boston, a police state.

An entire city on lockdown for ONE Muslim terrorist? No, I ain't kidding, friends.  Have we had a declaration of martial law?  Not that I have heard.  Is this the Soviet Union?  Nazi Germany?  Israel, where your enemies are 9 miles away lobbing rockets at you?

No.  This is America: 2013.

This is what happens when Americans become disarmed cowards, dependent on the police for their protection, despite numerous Supreme Court rulings that police do not have a duty to protect individuals.

This is an unconstitutional government occupation of an American city under pretense of protecting the citizenry.  This is what tyranny looks like.  I was told by someone who knows that over 1000 federal, state, and local cops participated in this illegal occupation.  And the people of Boston just laid down like sheep.

Behold, the lily-livered descendants of Captain John Parker and his citizen army, letting the jack-booted thugs invade their homes and imprison them there.

with no warrant in hand.
NBC: Boston Transit shut down, nearly 1 million sheltering in place
The entire city of Boston was put on lockdown Friday morning by the Massachusetts governor as police searched for the second of two [Muslim] men believed to have been involved in the marathon bombings earlier this week. 
Gov. Deval Patrick said people should shelter in place as authorities engaged in a “massive manhunt” – an extraordinary order that affected nearly one million people.
'Lockdown'?  ('Lockdown', a prison term, nice.) For one guy?  Isn't ANYBODY in the whole City of Boston ARMED except the police? Apparently not.

USA Today: Shelter-in-place order extends to Boston

ORDER?  Who the hell has the right to 'order' Americans to do such a thing?  There's been no warrant from a judge!

KCRG (local TV): Cops: Boston Must Shelter In Place Amid Hunt for Terrorist

'MUST'? Really? I don't think so.  There's been no declaration of martial law, and this ain't a bird flu pandemic.  There's been no formal suspension of the writ of habeas corpus.  Do people even know what that means anymore?  Looks to me like people are being detained-- in their homes! -- and where are the arrest documents?  Where are the warrants, even?


From local TV station WHDH-7: Police go door-to-door in search for Boston bomber
Col. Timothy Alben of the Massachusetts State Police said Friday afternoon that officers would go street to street as the manhunt for the bombing suspect continues. Gov. Deval Patrick urged residents to continue staying indoors.
...
Twenty-six-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NY'-ev) was killed
1 MILLION people hiding from
Doogie Howser the Terrorist?
overnight. His 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar (JOH'-kahr) is on the loose.
Who can pronounce Dzokhar?  Let's call him "Doogie the Terrorist."

One 19-year-old Muslim terrorist is 'on the loose'?  "Oh, dear."  What ninnies.

What do they think, he has enough firepower to destroy one million people?  He ain't got a nuke, people.  He can only carry so much explosive.  Sixty pounds of C4  (which he probably doesn't have) would only destroy a city block.  And they tell 1 MILLION people to hide because of one guy who is carrying explosives?  Stunning.

From PBS: Police Warn Boston 'Shelter in Place'
Nearly a million residents in the city of Boston and many surrounding communities were asked to "shelter in place" Friday as police continued a massive manhunt for the second of two suspects of the Boston Marathon bombings. 
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick requested that everyone in the area stay inside and only open their door to police officers showing proper identification. Commuter bus, rail, taxi and subway services were suspended. Businesses were asked to stay closed until further notice. 
"This is a serious situation," Patrick said at a media briefing in Watertown early Friday. "We're taking it seriously."
Yeah, it's serious, all right, Patrick, you statist tyrant. You are infringing on Bostonians' 4th Amendment right to be served a warrant, the right of habeas corpus when detained, their Fifth Amendment right to not self-incriminate, the Supreme-Court-established right to free travel, and a host of other rights, ALL BECAUSE ONE TERRORIST IS ON THE LOOSE. 

One. Freaking. Teenage. Terrorist!  I can't emphasize that enough! And the 1 million disarmed lemmings in Boston just go along with it!  And BUSINESSES are going along with this, too. Who is going to pay for their lost revenue? Johnny Jihad?  Yeah, right.

The Massachusetts Founders like Captain John Parker must be rolling in their

graves today, so great would be their grief at learning what castrated wienies their descendants have become. Instead of blubbering to the police about armed foreign invaders, or hiding in their homes like a bunch of cowards, on this very day in history, April 19, 1775, the people of Massachusetts 238 years ago today took ACTION.

The Massachusetts Patriots of 1775 put down a whole army of foreign interlopers that were trying to disarm them and terrorize them into submitting.  The least of their privates would have shot this snot-nosed Muslim punk in the head, at significant yardage, with a paper-patched 60-caliber musket ball, and had his rifle reloaded before the punk could have put his backpack down.

According to the Appleseed group of the Revolutionary War Veterans' Association (RWVA, which Ol' Backwoods supports with my dollars, attendance, and passion), there were at least three engagements of foreign armed and dangerous enemies in Massachusetts on April 19, 1775. All of them were met by ordinary Americans. Today, Boston goes into lockdown, hiding from a one foreign invader. How far we have fallen.

 From RWVA:
On April 19th, 1775, the British farmers, shopkeepers, lawyers, doctors, and craftsmen then living in the Colonies chose to face one of the the world's most feared and best equipped Army in a dispute over their rights and privileges as Englishmen.
And now, just a few miles away from Lexington Green, 1 million people, many of them descendants of Capt. John Parker and other Patriots that repelled the gun-grabbing British, 1 million diarmed Bostonians are hiding in their homes, because of ONE MUSLIM TERRORIST.

The Massachusetts Founders must be rolling in their graves.

UPDATE #1, 4/19: apparently some people in Boston are now questioning whether "powers-that-be over-reacted" in locking down the whole city.  Gee, ya think?

UPDATE #2, 4/19: Yeah, they caught the guy.  (Even though he tried to eat his own gun and now can't talk.)  Now, I suppose the City of Boston is just supposed to forget the rape of the people's rights, let the whole thing slip back down the memory hole, and just go back to their lives as serfs.  No doubt, they will.

I won't.  This ain't how we do things in America.  I'll go further:  Massachusetts is no longer American.

UPDATE #3, 4/19: Bob Owens lets us know, the Boston Ineptitude Express just keeps rolling:
It was a homeowner that discovered signs of the suspect in her yard, a yard that had already been “cleared” in the botched police sweep operation. Without her recognition that something was amiss, it is likely the search would have dragged through another night and into another day.
Finally after a barrage of gunfire and untold number of flash-bangs and 20 hours of a city frozen by fear, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev finally chose to surrender on his own terms.
So, the standing army violating every right of the people wasn't necessary to capture the guy, and they missed him anyway?  Some lady tipped them off?  Big, big, surprise.


UPDATE #4, 4/19: I read a comment on MarketTicker:
... Gestapo tactics for the Boston PD (in full battle gear) to bang on someone's door at 4:00 am and order the family out their house scaring the children to death.
Is this guy telling the truth?  Given the pictures above, is there ANY chance he isn't?  This is NOT America, folks.

UPDATE #5, 4/20:

Yahoo!/AP Reports that business was massively impacted by this little Stormtroopen outing.

Bombing, Aftermath Could Cost Boston Billions
The economic impact of the Boston Marathon bomb suspect manhunt could run into the billions of dollars, according to one expert, as a million city residents were stuck at home, stores were shuttered and public transit ground to a halt.
Boston businesses were advised to remain closed, city employees were told to stay home or remain in place at work, vehicular traffic was limited and travel into the city via Amtrak and discount bus lines was suspended. 
As a result, food, supplies and even the gasoline required for the city to get back to business wouldn't make it into Boston for the duration of the lockdown, said Michael Barrett, former director of strategy for the White House Homeland Security Council.
"Every city has three days of fresh food on average," Barrett told “Big Data Download.” "There's only so much excess capacity in the supply chains.” 
The Boston Marathon bombing will also have a ripple effect on the city's economy going forward, he said. Increased security at public events of any size will require additional local and state police forces, Barrett said, and that overtime can grow expensive.

(bold mine)

Are you reading this?  This KNEW that the city's supply chain would  not withstand a disruption like that, yet they went full Gestapo anyway.  Every prepper knows that supply chains for basic necessities have been optimized to the point where there is virtually no local storage of anything; stuff is stored in giant distribution warehouses out in the hinterlands, and even there, there isn't much extra to buffer against a disruption in the source.  So, what would happen if a cities supplies of food and gasoline were suddenly and massively interrupted?  I think Boston (and the Feds running the operation) just found out.

I believe this was a full-scale test of martial law, and that Obama and his handlers and their minions are SALIVATING to try this on a bigger scale.  This is not America, folks.

UPDATE #6, 4/20:  This photo is making the rounds on Facebook, with the comment,  "One of the less publicized impressions from yesterday's stand-off. A family with young children in Watertown was out of milk during the lock down ..."

Die nette Sturmtrooper bringt mik zu den Kindern!
Americans, this is Soviet-Union-Level propaganda.

This is an attempt to rehabilitate the reputation of the cops in the eyes of the public after the awful rape of civil liberties that occurred in Watertown yesterday.

They were dragging families out of their beds in the middle of the night, scaring kids to death with their jackboots trampling Americans' civil liberties.

And now, we're just supposed to go, "Awwwwww" because the nice policeman is bringing milk to the wittle kids?"  Well, nuts to that.

UPDATE #7, 4/20:

Look, Ol' Backwoods ain't the only one who thinks this whole "lockdown", "shelter-in-place" thing was a massive over-reaction for one man.  Let's hear from someone from the Progressive side of the aisle:
Michael Cohen, a former speechwriter for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Bill Richardson, said authorities reacted too strongly.

“I just think it’s insane what’s going on here,” Cohen said. “I understand the need to be cautious and tell people to be cautious, but to tell people to stay inside because one guy is loose is just crazy.”

If there was some serial killer on the loose, no one would suggest that we do a lockdown of a whole city,” said Cohen, now a fellow at the Century Foundation. “To me, it just plays on our outsized fears of terrorism. … Part of it is just cover your ass business by public officials.”
(bold mine)

UPDATE #8, 4/20: lots and lots of pictures from the imprisonment of the City of Boston at SHTFPlan.  Just keep scrolling!  Below are a few of the best ones (copied to my server so I don't take his bandwidth).

'Military police'?  I guess Posse Comitatus really is dead.

But but but I thought Obama said "Weapons of War" don't belong on our streets!"

UPDATE #9, 4/21:  More revelations: illegal confiscation of guns.   From Karl Denninger at Market Ticker:
There was no "hot pursuit" and thus no argument available to them allowing searches of private property without consent or a warrant.  
 Not only did they search without a warrant there were multiple reports through the day of seizure of firearms, among other things.   
The Constitutional Rights of an entire town, some 30,000 residents, were wantonly and outrageously violated yesterday, yet not one media outlet is focusing there.
More and more, this is looking like a dress rehearsal for national martial law.

  1. I concur completely with you.
    While watching all this shit pan out with my wife, she asked me, "Can you imagine swat teams going through our house?"

    I said, "No. I would not be happy."

    Also, it's damn frustrating, and disturbing, that so many in the
    community(who should know better) have jumped on the bandwagon of infotainment drama this has been since the beginning.
    While being completely oblivious to the military/federal/police lockdown of Boston, by the blatant violation of posse comitatus, fourth amendment, Bill of Rights, God given birthright to freedom, privacy, and defense of self, family
    and friends; by any means necessary.

    And WITHOUT the extraordinary presence and action of ALL law enforcement, this Islamic terrorist might have never been caught.

    If I lived anywhere NEAR that neighborhood I would be very thankful and appreciative of any type of law enforcement presence, military or otherwise.

    One thing people like yourself ignore or are otherwise ignorant of: Islam has declared war on the infidel. I don't know if you are an infidel or not. I am. And I appreciate the need for the military to join in defense of the infidel in this country when we are attacked by any Muslim whose objective and actions are to terrorize and weaken us.

  5. By and large, those who loved freedom had left Boston prior to 1775 which is why there was the siege on Boston for most of the revolution. Anybody today that gives a rip about freedom wouldn't choose to live in Boston either. So frankly, I'm not the least surprised. In a LOT of other areas on the other hand there are tons of people that would see this happening and make it 100% clear that any warrantless use of force on them or neighbors would involve body bags.
