WASHINGTON — Former representative Ron Paul says that Americans should perhaps be even more frightened by the police response to the Boston Marathon bombings than the explosions — which killed three and injured scores more — themselves.
In an article called “Liberty Was Also Attacked in Boston,” the former Republican congressman and two-time presidential candidate compares the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to “scenes from a military coup in a far off banana republic.”
“The Boston bombing provided the opportunity for the government to turn what should have been a police investigation into a military-style occupation of an American city,” Paul writes. “This unprecedented move should frighten us as much or more than the attack itself.”
