Missing The Boat

Boston Manhunt ‘Missed the Boat’ as Police Skip Street - Bloomberg: "“No one disputes that the police and soldiers who searched for the bomber are heroes -- they put their lives on the line for us,” Pepper said. “I just wish they came down our street.”"

Lund, the fellow Franklin Street resident, said she appreciates the hard work and bravery of the police and soldiers involved. Still, failing to search her block means someone wasn’t doing his or her job.

“With the helicopters and the Humvees and the soldiers and the police working all day to find him, all they had to do was search our street,” Lund said. “They missed the boat.”
Look. First of all, it's not part of the job description of the police to lay down their lives to protect you. Only you can do that.  And if you're properly armed and trained you might be able to avoid the "laying down your life" part.

Second, they're human beings that make mistakes under pressure just like everyone else.

At least they're not willfully trying to destroy the country for their own enrichment and satisfaction like our bozo political class.
