Kill Them All, Let God Sort Them Out

Police handcuff 40 innocent motorists at gunpoint for two hours as they act on a tip to catch a bank robber at intersection

"Police in Colorado stopped 25 cars and arrested and detained 40 innocent people over two hours as they turned their hunt for a bank robbery suspect into a frenzied blind search.

Handcuffing every adult at gunpoint, the intersection of E. Iliff Avenue and S. Buckley Road in Aurora, Colorado, turned into a chaotic scene as police swarmed the area looking for the suspected robber.

'Cops came in from every direction and just threw their car in front of my car,' said Sonya Romero, who was one of the drivers who had been handcuffed by police.

Setting up their barricade after the robbery at Aurora's Wells Fargo bank, the police went from car to car pulling everyone out and making them raise their hands above their heads.

Taking a total of two-and-a-half hours to locate their suspect, police left the detained members of the public shaken."

This is quite suspicious.
My impression about this travesty is that it was a test case to see how this police state tactic would go down with the general public.
It' smells fishy to say the least.
From another account the "perp" was the last vehicle to be searched. It seems very disingenuous that the "bank robber" would still be so close to his crime. Apparently a swarm of cop cars seemed to be standing by to cut off traffic and they blanketed the area immediately. This is of course entirely illegal, but then again legality was defenestrated a long time ago and the fascists are pushing the envelope to see how much shit we'll actually swallow, adjusting their tactics accordingly.
I hope a lawyer was among the people forced to sit on the ground for two straight hours.
