    I doubt that these extreme measures they did do would have happened had they not gone on a rampage and killed the cop, wounded another, and so on. If they had laid low, and it were just a search, it probably would have been much less intrusive.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I say no. I think the crazy cop on the west coast was a bigger threat and they didn't throw liberty out for that. So I disagree with "depends on the criminal". It gets easier to justify suspending the Constitution with each new circumstance if we let them (the gov't).
