Can you help spread word to watch?

President Obama defended the spying scandal on his tour of Africa, and was joined by predecessor George W Bush, which highlighted how similar they have become by forgetting campaign promises while occupying the White House.

Barack Obama is a “war criminal” and a “hypocrite,” an Irish politician has said in a damning attack on the US president. The MP slammed the Irish treatment of Obama during his G8 visit as akin to ‘prostituting’ Ireland for a “pat on the head.”

Undeclared martial law, dancing to terrorists' tune, ... and we applauded
I think I'm one of the few people disturbed and unhappy by how the manhunt was run in Boston and by how few people even questioned if any of this was legal.  Or what precedent we just set.

The media, who should have been loudest in questioning these actions, used the polite term "lockdown" to describe what was an undeclared martial law.  When you shut down all transportation, close businesses, tell citizens they must remain inside their homes, and bring in the armored vehicles - that's martial law.  When you search people's bags and demand their ID because they are walking on the street - that's martial law.  When you "ask" people for "consent" to search their homes by sticking your foot in the door and using intimidation and fear - that's martial law.  Taking a US citizen into custody and not reading him his rights and interrogating him without right to council AND planning to use what he says in court - is far past martial law.  

A pair of terrorists do a heinous act and we oblige them with wall to wall 24 hour coverage.  We magnify the effects of the act by forcing a major US city to completely shut down.  We further do the terrorists job for them by spitting on the 4th and 5th, (and possibly 6th) amendments in the name of public safety.  Hell, we didn't just dance to the terrorists' tune, we added an orchestra.

I have no problem with the police, FBI, SWAT officers.  They, for the most part, were trying to be as polite and focused as possible.  They put their lives on the line and one of them didn't make it.  If there was a manhunt for a very violent criminal taking place in my area and the police showed up and politely asked if they could search my home for the suspect, I'd most likely let them.  If authorities asked me to stay off the streets so they could more easily locate a dangerous criminal, I'd most likely comply.  What I object to is how the city officials pretended to ask for voluntary actions on the part of citizens, but their actions made it plain it was anything but voluntary.  I object to doing the terrorists' job for them by shutting down an entire city, causing more disruption and fear than the original act caused.  I object to the passive way we now accept voiding our rights, as in Boston or at any airport or our online data (CISPA passed the House, did you know that?), because the government tells us that's what we must do to be safe.  The Patriot Act, Kill Lists by our President, Drone attacks, suspension of Due Process ... and now martial law in our cities?  Is this another step along the path of The New Normal? 

Every citizen is protected under the constitution, no matter what they have done or what person the authorities are searching for, or we are no longer the United States of America.  The terrorists won this round (again) and we helped them and then applauded.

And want to know the sad kicker to this string of events?  The 19 year old suspect wasn't found through these illegal actions.  He was found by a homeowner who went out to check his property after the undeclared martial law was lifted.  

More photos here, tell me this is what we really want? :  https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1366&bih=600&q=boston%2C+searching+homes&oq=boston%2C+searching+homes&gs_l=img.3...1510.10557.0.11148.25.17.1.7.3.0.99.1223.17.17.0...0.0...1ac.1.9.img.tOue-7cTe40#imgrc=_
