Teen Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is diminishing excuse for Boston police state tyranny

We pick up yesterday’s story with Watertown and Boston under lockdown, it’s a prison term go figure, while paramilitary police conduct door to door warrantless searches to find an immigrant teen, college wrestler Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, said to be armed and extremely dangerous, who fled from last night’s firefight with the police which left his older brother Tamerlan alive then dead. The two brothers are said by police to be suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, said to have killed an MIT campus officer, said to have lobbed grenades during a car chase, yet law enforcement spokesmen are not saying how 19-yr old Dzhokhar escaped the ten minute shootout. Now they’re treating him like Rambo. What, did he leap away wearing a bandolier loaded with pressure cookers? Won’t somebody cry BULLSHIT!?

Won’t some lawyer please jump on this menacing language coming from the Boston Police, quoted in the Boston Globe:

“This kid is obviously going down fighting,” the official said. “You can rest assured the cops are looking for a fight right now.”

Being raised in the Chechen war zone may give Dzhokhar an edge in evading the militarized joint forces pursuing him, but the profile emerging as reporters hound his relatives and friends hardly describes how and why he could be expected to pose further threat, he didn’t kill the driver whose car they highjacked, he didn’t shoot up the marathon or the 7-11.

Police are now admitting themselves into houses to check for booby-traps as if their evadee is a Johnny Poison-Appleseed with an unlimited cache of ordnance he can draw from like in a video game. At best their scared teen is bleeding to death in some corner, a fate for which Chechnya was excellent training. Otherwise this manhunt is a highly inappropriate pretext for normalizing police state tyranny.

ADDENDUM: THIS

Obama breaks truth to widows: Miners died as Corporate Slaves, get used to it

Not really. He said they died in pursuit of a better life. But since the Coal Companies and other Corporate owners of West Virginia aren’t going to actually invest anything in developing some other way for the people who live there to survive, and the people have not nearly enough opportunity to build their own enterprises, it IS a cycle of corporate slavery.

The Horatio Alger and Ragged Dick rags-to-riches stories were Bullshit when they were first published, and still are today. The Mine Workers union song popularized by “Tennessee” Ernie Ford, 16 Tons, says it more realistically.

“you load 16 tons
what do ya get?
Another day older
and deeper in debt
St Peter don’cha call me
cause I can’t go
I owe my soul
to the Company Store.”

The same people who lobby hard against Unions and fair wages, lobby for “Tort Reform” meaning a Landlord’s Lien not only on your possessions, should you default on your lease, but a period of bond-service, debt slavery, should you default.

The Mining corporations, in particular, used this as a way of keeping the workers docile.

The Company Store, just that, the only way you could get groceries or clothing or any other necessities of life was to purchase them from a commissary owned by the Company. Your lodgings were also owned by the Company. A rigged system where you always owed the Boss for the privilege of working for him.

Paid less than you’re forced to spend to survive. Try to leave and you get a warrant for your arrest under the Fugitive Laws, have the equivalent of Dog the Bounty Hunter chasing you down, putting you into the County Prison to work out your debt. In a county that’s owned by, you guessed it, your Loving Employer.

America is sliding backward into that quagmire of Corporate Dictatorship. The saddest part, many of the miners and their families actually eat that crap up with a spoon, the Corporate Lies that they’re working for a better future and for their freedom, and that of their children.

It’s a shameful thing for ONE political party to pay homage to that Blatant Lie. For ALL of the three largest political parties in America, Democratic, Republican, and Tea Parties, to pander to that meaningless CRAP is beyond shameful.

Maybe he simply misspoke, and was off by one letter, they were working for a bItter life.

NOLA Ku Klux Koverup.

“A culture of deception and secrecy” sounds so very much like the Klan. Except for a couple of crucial divergences, The Klan has defectors at a rate that’s an order of Magnitude above the percentage of Cops who’ll actually testify against their fellow Pigs
And they wonder why their Fellow “Heroes” get killed and assaulted so often
Could it be that somebody who has fallen afoul of their Ku Klux Kulture knows damned well that he’ll never get a REAL legitimate hearing in a court where the Cops, the Judge, the Prosecutor and if he’s not Rich the Public Defen Pretender belong to the same Old Boy Clique and the “guilty until proven Innocent or a sufficient bribe is paid” rule is in full force?

That such a person might not be so weak that being tortured and imprisoned and chained and beaten and threatened would be sufficient to make him “respect” the PIGS, and that he might acquire a firearm and just blow some pigs face through the back of his piggy little skull?

Maybe it isn’t what the cops deserve, after all, their victims, at least the one trying, convicting and sentencing them in the street isn’t actually dead, so it’s not exactly “eye for an eye”.

Perhaps, you know, being smacked in the face with a club while you’re handcuffed and called “crazy” for objecting to such treatment at the hands of some Truly Sub-Human Uniformed Retards would tend to make one disregard such niceties.

It might not be what the cops deserve, per se… but it is exactly the kind of “justice” they themselves dish out.
