Eyewitness video of Boston home search: Greater good or Gestapo tactics?

Conservative websites and commentary are lit up over a video of a task force SWAT team of Massachusetts police agencies conducting house-to-house searches for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in the Watertown, Mass., area.

The video below – shot by a neighbor — shows a number of adults being forced from one home at gunpoint, hands raised, until heavily armed officers clear the building.

Comments range from the angry “we used to live in a free country” variety to the more prudent “the Constitution isn’t a suicide pact.” In other words,  either conservatives cannot in good conscience stand by while the “jack-booted thugs” of government violate precious constitutional rights guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment, or they need to be mature enough to recognize that even the Constitution allows times when reasonable law enforcement measures must be tolerated for the greater good.

You can agree with one or the other and still be a conservative. You can agree partially with one or the other and still be a conservative.

Watch the video. Have your say. You’ll find some who agree with you, and many more who don’t.

At least the question has been raised – and it’s being vigorously debated by those on the right. How often do you hear the same question debated with equal vigor by our compatriots on the left?

It goes to show that the only kind of diversity that matters in conservatism is diversity of thought. The only kind of diversity that matters to liberals really doesn’t matter at all.
