    Anytime MY, let me say this again"MY" Rights are suspended for the greater cause of the public means that the Gov't at their whim can do what they want, when they want and totally suspend the Constitution when they choose. And no one is worried about this?

    I most definitely am concerned! That is the whole point of my posts.
    Dad45acp(?) doesn't seem to think it was that big of a deal though!
    He thinks it was all for the greater good of public safety.
    I take care of my own safety. I don't need the Army to do it for me.

    Wow! But it was reported on TV! Do you mean to say they might have gotten it WRONG?!
    How am I supposed to believe them now?!

    My personal safety, comfort and lively hood is wrought by my hand. You either ARE protected by the Constitution or not. Those that allow their Rights to be suspended will eventually become used to it. I refuse to succumb to complacency and comfort from those that want to control us.

    There is far to much unknown to start arguing. There's a lot to this that needs to come to light. I don't recall martial law being declared. Therefore the only home/property searches would need to be done with the owner's consent. Which I wouldn't have given. I wonder how many were ordered out at gun point ?

    It's on you tube if you want to see it. People were ordered out of their homes at gun point. They were not allowed to stop to get shoes or purses or other personal items.
    There are videos of people who were upset that wanted to make sure the "police" didn't steal things (hey, it's on video. I didn't make that up).
    Check them out!

    There you go putting safety over our rights! If the police can't work within the framework of the constitution then they should resign. How does the saying go: Those that give up freedom for safety deserve neither.

    BUT I would add that's it reflective today as it was so many years ago.
