This is nice, I admit, but it doesn't justify what they did. Violating rights to catch one man isn't forgivable through one act of kindness. I'm sure police states around the world have these sort of stories. We just choose to ignore them because the actions of one man won't define the country.

That was perfectly reasonable, entering people's homes without the homeowners permission however, is not. Pointing an assault rifle in an innocent persons face and demanding to be let into their house is extremely unjustified.

Well if they were entering people's homes while they weren't home, I'd say given the circumstances it was necessary, he might have been hiding out in a house and threaten/kill the family when they came home. However yea the second part no, pointing a gun into a families face is horrible.

"When a guy with a gun is running around"

Isn't people with guns pretty widespread in America?
Isn't the defensive line of any gun-owner "We have to be able to protect ourselves", but as soon as some guy with a gun who killed some people is running around, everyone has to hide in their houses?

After Katrina we were held up in our house, our area wasn't badly damaged and was not flooded. The military went around through the neighborhood and confiscated all the weapons. They confiscated our weapons and held us at gun point as if we were criminals.

All the guns were legal. And we never got ANY of them back. My dad lost his rifle that was passed down from his great grandfather. It was a civil war relic, the very weapon he carried on his back during that war.

tl;dr, it wasn't right. They had no business doing that to us or to anyone.

You probably have googled it by now due to all the hate below, but just in case you didn't:

-Two men from Russia bombed the Boston Marathon in the US
-Once their identities were discovered they were believed to still be in the town, which caused a massive police search.
-After realizing their identities were public the two men robbed a store, killed an MIT police officer, and got into a shoot-out with US police involving explosives.
-During that shootout the older suspect was killed by police fire and the other suspect (his brother) ran over him to escape.
-The younger suspect escaped and was loose in the town of Watertown, causing the entire town to be put on complete lockdown to prevent anyone from leaving their homes and make it easier and safer to search for the second suspect.
-After a day in full lockdown the suspect was located in a person's boat in their yard, and arrested/taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Don't listen to the others, not everyone stays up to date on foreign news. Hope I helped :)

The 8 month old baby I babysit pretty much relies on milk, and the older kids (3,4,8) WILL NOT sleep without chocolate milk. So while it's definitely not crucial to their survival, what the police did was very nice and could have been much more appreciated than just the fact that they could have cereal.

That's certainly not what I mean when I say it. Of course there are good cops, and of course the majority of them are decent people, but when you have an exception to a rule like that that leaves so much open to interpretation, there are people that are going to use it correctly, and then there are people who are going to abuse it entirely.
