    I was born into a LE family, spent nearly all of my life in and around the LE community, still have plenty of LE folks in my life.  Unfettered violence such as you are suggesting brings lawsuits, lots and lots of lawsuits, not only against the various agencies but against individual officers.

    There is media EVERYWHERE around this situation. Trust me, if anyone had kicked in doors cursing it would be on tape and blasted out by the media group who got the "exclusive footage" and every group that could reproduce it.  That's major breaking news kind of stuff and there's no media person, either reporter or camera crew, or civilian with a smart phone, that would hesitate to film and report it.

    I've been watching this all day. Nothing of the sort has been broadcast while plenty of footage of the house-to-house searches and entries have been. This is a well justified frightened community, nothing is served by scaring them even more with the storm trooper behavior you are claiming to be happening.  The people behind those guns and all that kevlar are parents, spouses, neighbors, sons and daughters. They are there to do the job in the best way they know how to protect all of those frightened people who are just like them.

    If you can point me to one single bit of footage or reporting from Boston that supports your position I will publicly apologize right here. Until then, I think your position is ignorantly cynical and more than uninformed but I respect your right to take it.

    Peace.

    Creativity is intelligence having fun.

      again.

      You can't assassinate the character of any of modern conservative. You'd have to find where it was buried, dig it up, resurrect it, then kill it. And killing a zombie isn't really assassination, is it?
