The largest manhunt in New England history ensued earlier this week following the Boston marathon bombings, encompassing a colossal nine thousand personnel from all areas of law enforcement and authority, including the police, the FBI, the National Guard and the military. This ludicrous illustration of militarised manpower on the streets was ‘officially’ at least, all in order to catch two young brothers who were suspected of committing the attacks, yet in reality, of course, was about anything but.
After an apparent shootout with the two brothers in which the older one, 26 year old Tamerian Tsarnaev, was ‘conveniently’ killed and the younger one, 19 year old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, inconveniently vanished, the city of Boston was placed on ‘lock down’ and martial law effectively declared until this suspected teenage terrorist threat had been captured, allowing everyone to sleep safely in their beds at night again.
The city streets were left deserted after public transport systems were shut down and citizens were ordered to stay indoors for their own safety. Swarms of militarised police patrolled through residential areas pointing their offensive weapons here there and everywhere and soldiers arriving in Humvee’s and various other vehicles of war joined them to perform unconstitutional door to door searches. All of this insanity was completely in vain however, as the ‘dangerous’ teenager was later discovered by a local resident, cowering under a tarp in a boat in his back garden.
The reaction of the citizens of Boston to this completely unnecessary and overbearing presence of masked men on the streets was not one of horror and outrage however but was sadly one of joy and perverse hysteria, as hundreds of them took to the streets to ‘thank’ all those militarised men in black for keeping them safe and to celebrate the capture of an obvious FBI scapegoat that the media had already decided for them, was responsible for the bombings earlier in the week.
This ridiculous ‘manhunt’ quickly escalated into an exercise in testing the waters of martial law and police state lock down and in associating such objectionable actions with favourable, advantageous outcomes. The next time a similar attack takes place, whether it be in the U.S or elsewhere in the Western world, much of the population will now be expecting and sadly perhaps even welcoming the sight of thousands of armed authoritarians on the streets and this is exactly how those at the top of the pyramid can gradually implement their agenda for complete police state control without people realising whats happening in the long term.
It’s not so much a totalitarian tip toe any longer but rather an outright totalitarian trample, yet, a trample that the majority, despite it’s glaring obviousness, simply cannot see, due to the irrational grip of media propagated fear. For those who can, this is what a police state looks like – It isn’t pretty, it isn’t natural and it certainly isn’t the way things ought to be, yet unless people start waking up en masse, it’s unfortunately something we’re probably going to have to get used to seeing allot more of…
