Boston police spied on Occupy protesters instead of investigating Tsarnaevs

10.05.2013 18:29

Authorities in Massachusetts were never told the Russian government warned the United States of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but investigators were largely preoccupied with another problem at the time: protesters.

The ruling Irish clan tip the pot towards their own while Obama tips it back towards all people.

Wanna know how to really protect the American people?? Get rid of the American government. All they have accomplished in recent years is anger the rest of the world to the point where most would go to war with us given the chance, and it spends so much time illegally spying on our own law abiding citizens who might think differently than those in power, that it lets real threats slip through the cracks.. they are useless and need to go ASAP!!!

If the American public was aware of the sheer number of failed terrorist threats the US gets every year there would be anarchy.

I think they do a very good job at it considering the fact that we are the most hated country on the planet but it comes with the territory.

Yes dhs was created for this. Oh but wait now they have reason to spy more and take more rights away

The anti-war protesters began wearing masks, breaking windows, blocking streets & walkways, tagging walls, local gangs were infiltrating & 'shaking down' PEACEFUL protesters in Oakland. The police saw THEIR 'terrorist' behavior, and HAD to observe THEM. I blame the 'Occupy' movement. And I supported them at first. A bunch of anarchists...trying to prevent those who DID have jobs, from reaching them.

Like my home, Sth Africa, home to a bunch of useless politicians wasting /stealing our tax revenue.

It sounds like a traditional security failure. Too busy reading grandma's blogs to see the threats.

Wasn't the DHS created to avoid this. Oh wait its another useless govt. agency.

That's right, they're too busy watching us, claiming that they're watching the terrorists

Go figure, police paid w/taxpayers money to protect public, yet conduct covert action against people

Anonymous user 10.05.2013 21:34

Let me get this straight... DHS was too busy with anti-war protestors to worry about the bombers?
