The Bill Of Rights Was Written For Dzhokar Tsarnaev

TAMPA, April 20, 2013 – 19-year-old Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev is in custody. Assuming that Tsarnaev is indeed guilty of these crimes, a very real threat to public safety has been taken off the streets. That’s the good news.

The bad news is that the Tsarnaev brothers have taken the last vestiges of a free society in America down with them.

The Bill of Rights was already on life support before this tragedy. Before the dust settled after 9/11, the 4th Amendment had been nullified by the Patriot Act. The 5th and 6th Amendments were similarly abolished with the Military Commission Act of 2006 and the 2012 NDAA resolution, which contained a clause allowing the president to arrest and indefinitely detain American citizens on American soil without due process of law.

Americans had already grown accustomed to having their persons and papers searched at the airport without probable cause and without a warrant supported by oath or affirmation. After a brief, politically-motivated backlash against the Bush Administration, Americans similarly resigned themselves to the government tapping their phones, reading their e-mails and generally spying on them wherever they went. Things were already very, very bad.

They just got a lot worse.

Not only did the militarized domestic law enforcement complex put the City of Boston under martial law, but nobody seems to have found it out of the ordinary, much less outrageous. Yes, a few journalists like libertarian Anthony Gregory raised a finger. But, for the most part, nobody seemed to mind that the entire city was under military siege, complete with paramilitary units in full battle gear, battlefield ordinance and tanks. Tanks!

    I have no words for what took place. I am a Boston native and I am horrified that my fellow Bostonians so happily complied to having their rights violated.
    It is a shame.

      Be sure to point that out to themas often as possible. People are waking up, but sometimes need to be shown what is happening. Point out the tricks in this magic act.

    Well, regardless of what you think of them, Alex Jones and Mike Adams were on top of this story from Minute One, and it appears Jones’ release of certain photos over the internet caused the “authorities” to change their story and their game plan, and then even deny the relevance of the photos. More is going on than meets the eye. And assuming that Dzhokar Tsarnaev is the end of the story is a BIG stretch. I’m not saying he was innocent, but his mother claims the FBI was on top of him for two years. Sounds like a repeat of a pattern on the part of FBI operations. … But, the fact that Boston was, in fact, under martial law lock down, to catch a 19 year old with a gun (!), and no one seems to mind, is mind-boggling.

      It was an exercise in civil obedience to martial law. Fail. We let fear and propaganda get the better of us here in Boston. And, for the record, the cheering and rejoicing in the streets was a sad testament to our willingness to fall prey to the crap the media feeds us – even when logic and evidence screams a different set of facts than what we have been ‘told’. There was/is so much more here than meets the eye.

    I was reading the continued article and all of a sudden it disappeared. Is someone censoring the internet? I think so.

    I saw a video on youtube someone in Boston made on their phone. A house across the street from them had like 6 fully armed police officers banging on their door and immediately raising their guns as the door was open, they frisked everyone that came while still holding them at gun point and made them run down the street to a check point to be frisked once more.
    They were violated to the up-most degree anyone could be violated, and they allowed it. But if 6 guns were in my face and in the face of my husband and children, I’d probably do the same :-/
