People actually still listen to this crackpot? In case he wasn’t paying attention there was a manhunt for a terrorist and it wouldn’t have been a good idea to try to find the maniac while the general public was going about their business.
Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said Monday that the police response to the Boston Marathon bombing “should frighten us as much or more than the attack itself.”
The former Republican presidential candidate, writing for a libertarian website, said the reaction to the twin blasts — which killed three and wounded more than 200 more — was like a “military coup in a far off banana republic.”
“The Boston bombing provided the opportunity for the government to turn what should have been a police investigation into a military-style occupation of an American city,” Paul said.
“The suspect was not discovered by the paramilitary troops terrorizing the public,” Paul said. “He was discovered by a private citizen, who then placed a call to the police. And he was identified not by government surveillance cameras, but by private citizens who willingly shared their photographs with the police.”
