If This Is Not Domestic Terrorism,
Volumes of tanks and numerous men arrive armed with assault weapons wearing military regalia, carrying out forbidden military action in the streets of Watertown, Massachusetts, going house to house without a search warrant, and in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
Frantically the People, ignorant of what is going on and fearing for their lives, are being driven from their homes and corralled into the streets for hours consisting of most of the day, forbidden re-entry into their own homes. Every person on the street throughout the city are commanded to produce identification in a show of military force.
The Declaration of the Rights of the People in the Massachusetts as it relates to standing armies reads, "The people have a right to keep and to bear arms for the common defense. And as, in time of peace, armies are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be maintained without the consent of the legislature; and the military power shall always be held in an exact subordination to the civil authority, and be governed by it." Article XVII.
"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759. Notwithstanding their Oaths of Office to uphold the Fourth Amendment, witness what is going on in the name of "keeping us safe." If this is not subjecting the People to domestic terrorism, what is it?
