Probably half of them are out and about out of curiosity.

Military and police presence there looks highly professional and well equipped.

I'd hate to see what kind of a disaster such a thing would turn into in the US. Rabid right and left wing types both out protesting martial law. It would be a zoo.
I don't know about that. There wasn't much protesting going on during the lockdown after the Boston marathon bombing.

Not only did the MA police force perform abysmally during the manhunt their searching of peoples homes without warrant or legit exigency was way out of line. Yes some of us were protesting. Bringing it to the courts is tho the best cause of action, in such a scenario as I did during the bombing I am ensuring my home is secured with a rifle. The Boston bombings manhunts were a great reflection of how incapable the state is and how important it is law abiding people arm themselves. The MA police force acted like 5 year olds playing soccer for the first time during the manhunt.

Actually, with a simple google search you can see that there have been dozens or murders on American soil explicitly committed in the name of Allah since 9/11.

No there wasn't, in fact many dummies let the police/military do whatever they wanted. Go into their homes with no search warrant, went out single file with their hands up.


One woman asked them please lock up my house when you leave, they didn't.


There were a few who knew their rights and spoke up, the rest would have fit in great in Germany in the 30s.

All media coverage has dried up, so as not to compromise police and military operations.

Even twitter is spammed with cute cat pictures on the feeds that were posting pics and updates.

This isn't over.

I was talking about the recent attacks. The media is already prepping people for a coming attack.


We haven't seen suicide bombers in this country going into crowded shopping malls or pubic events, at least not yet.
