Hahahaha... OK buddy. I'm drinking the Koolaid.
It doesn't matter that the kid WAS actually hiding in a persons yard. They knew he was in the neighbohood and were trying to locate him. He could have been hiding in a home putting a family in danger. You have to get them out of the house before you search it, so nobody gets hurt if they do find the suspect....
How do you not get that?!?! And it's not Koolaid... You should have yourself a tall glass of Common Sense

I've been trying to avoid the political stuff here, but what I personally fear in a situation like that is my dog getting killed...he doesn't take kindly to people pounding on the door, and it doesn't seem like one would have the time to properly contain pets, and I've heard horror stories of dogs getting killed in these types of situations. Also, not a huge fan of the "if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to worry about" philosophy...what if I do have something I want to keep hidden, like a plant that I shouldn't have to worry about hiding but do anyway...all hypothetical I know, just some random thoughts.

One point is missed on this whole discussion. Had the good citizens of Boston been armed, this whole search process would have been MUCH more limited. I also think that if the cops knocked on the door and the people said they didn't see anybody in their house they should have moved on. There was definitely some overkill on the cops part but that shouldn't surprise anybody.

Yeah, SeldomSeen, that's my worse fear too. We don't lock out doors because of our dog, Brujo. Piggies love shooting puppies for shore.
