Watertown, MA Man Forced
To Strip Naked Cleared And
This is America. We are better
the early morning hours every news source was covering the story
about a Watertown, Massachusetts man who eventually was forced to
strip naked for all the world to see. The man was thought to have
been one of the two brothers, suspected in the Boston Marathon
I watched the story unfold live on TV. It seemed
like forever that they had this twenty some year old guy lying
in the road. He was so still (probably frozen from fear), that
some news reporters wondered if he was dead.
Then the next
thing you know, the news reports had video of this man being walked
with hands cuffed behind his back, naked towards and then
getting into a police car. Though the video was fuzzed out, so that
we could not see the man's privates, I still could not believe my
eyes. I could not believe what I was seeing.
I could not
believe that here in America they would force a man to strip naked
in the street and allow people to videotape it. Even if this
had been the suspect that they were looking for, it was still
wrong of them to do this. Apparently they thought he might have
had bombs on him. Hey, then bring in the K9 dogs to sniff him
out for bombs. America is better than this. We do not do
Later when they caught the real suspect, nothing was
said on TV about what happened with this naked man.
And all I can find online is one little thing on an NBC article that
simply said, "A man in his 20s who was thought to be a suspect but
later cleared and released was ordered to strip naked, according to
CNN. Officials were concerned he had explosives on his
body."Click Here - Oops! What?
