Watertown MA Police Action Violated Fourth Amendment

Marjory Decker, Cambridge City Councilor and State Representative at the Cambridge City Council meeting April 22, 2013 recognized the importance of "a hug" giggling as she said it. She reported what her in-laws told her about the action in Watertown.

"One of my husband's aunts said she was so incredibly touched that, um, a lot of people came in with the wedding on Saturday, (giggle) but they were so touched that the determination of the, um, the FBI and the Task Force and all the police that were just, that came in, to the neighborhood, this was before we sort of knew what was going on, and they looked out their windows and realized something serious was happening, and the, um, the SWAT teams came into the house, and were so determined and so comforting, people, they, they felt so incredibly safe. And they also felt cared for. So in this incredibly intense moment of not knowing what's gonna happening, and knowing the danger that has already occurred, and, and that could occur, um, the determination of, we are here to help you, we are here to keep you safe, and, and literally the physical care of getting people out of houses to insure that, um, they weren't going to be stepping on anything that they didn't know that could be harmful. I mean, it just, but at the same time, the, the law enforcement were so gentle and sensitive with them as they moved them out, um, both in their words, and in their physical actions. For me it's just really, it, it's, . . . ah, I don't think we really appreciate who is, um, who makes up our first responders, and, and, what it is that they bring to this job, and, um, in so many ways. So, um, I, I'm just, I'm really happy to be part of this community, and we will be a community that grieves together and heals together."

Police perform house-to-house raids in Watertown MA ripping innocent families from their homes

Published on Apr 20, 2013
WATERTOWN, MA -- On Friday, April 19, 2013, during a manhunt for a bombing suspect, police and federal agents spent the day storming people's homes and performing illegal searches. While it was unclear initially if the home searches were voluntary, it is now crystal clear that they were absolutely NOT voluntary. Police were filmed ripping people from their homes at gunpoint, marching the residents out with their hands raised in submission, and then storming the homes to perform their illegal searches.
