Security theater in Boston bombing

Popehat sums it up in a few short sentences what many of us are thinking about the ginormous security overkill in the Boston bombing hunt.

First, just in case it’s not utterly obvious, I’m glad that the two murderous cowards who attacked civilians in Boston recently are off the streets. One dead and one in custody is a great outcome.

That said, a large percent of the reaction in Boston has been security theater. “Four victims brutally killed” goes by other names in other cities.

In Detroit, for example, they call it “Tuesday”.

”¦and Detroit does not shut down every time there are a few murders.
