Oh, to be in Watertown…Now that paramilitary Martial Law is here.
Last Friday was indeed a day we should all remember. In Boston and it’s suburb of Watertown, a dangerous man, a terrorist, responsible for the deaths of 3 people and the maiming of more than 170 along with the assignation of a police officer and the severe wounding of another, was running loose.
Nobody knew exactly where he was, where he was hiding.
Boston PD…Watertown PD…DHS…FBI…and police from other towns and other states joined in a coordinated manhunt.
Yes…we MUST remember the day.
Not as much for how it ended, with the terrorist being discovered, hiding in a boat behind the home at 67 Franklin St and then being taken into custody alive…No…Not as much for THAT rather, for how the day unfolded.
THAT is what we must remember.
Throughout the day, people were warned NOT to be on the streets. Not to go to work. NOT to open their businesses.
THAT I can understand…
