C4SS Feed 44 presents Chad Nelson‘s “The Boston Marathon Two Years Later – A Policeman’s Delight” read by Joey Clark and edited by Nick Ford.
For Constitution-worshippers it is one more tear in the Fourth Amendment, which purportedly guarantees Americans protection from random and baseless searches by the state. But the Fourth Amendment is regularly watered down with each new dictate of law enforcement. The newest wave involves so-called national security exceptions, which this behavior will no doubt fall under. The Boston Marathon’s black guard won’t be thinking of the Constitution as they search high and low for violators of their newly implemented policies. It is all the more ironic that this new heap of dirt shoveled onto the American Constitution comes on Patriot’s Day. American Revolutionaries are spinning in their graves as they watch today’s Redcoats go to work without even so much as a general warrant. Lysander Spooner said of the Constitution: “it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.” At some point, Constitutional reverence must give way to the realization that the Constitution is endlessly malleable in proportion with the demands of the state.
