Seems to be lots of conflicting info on this point. The U.S, media is running away from the issue with all possible speed. Nonetheless, reports out of England and Israel seem to suggest that authorities did, in fact, place the Boston area under 'lock-down." [a Euphemism (:D ) for Martial law?????]

Martial Law is not the same as "Shelter in place". Citizens who chose to walk the streets were not arrested. Countless news reporters were free to film and walk the streets as long as they did not interfere with police activity. Some far right wing media nuts like to stir the pot and call what happened Martial Law.
When the shelter in place was lifted around 6pm. many people started coming outside. When the second suspect was located, the shelter in place was put back in place around 7pm., but not as many people respected the request(key word here: request). This is why so many people were on the streets cheering the capture of the second suspect.
If Martial Law were truly in effect then those people would not have been on the streets. If they were violating a Martial Law order, they would have promptly been arrested.
In short, no Martial Law was in effect.

The question has to do with what the law says, little to do with what local citizens want and absolutely nothing to do with the granite here in TOPIX that gets substituted for brain cells.
1. For the law, please see link.
2, and for the brain dead please see respondents #2 and #3.

Was the military deployed in Boston?

Although martial law involves the use of the military, not all use of the military is martial law.

Who was in charge. The military or the police?

I was referring to Watertown Mass. Military vehicles were in Watertown.

I'm amazed at how hard and long we've fought for our rights. The blood that's shed from our ancestors. And everyone's willingness to give them up over two kids who exactly the same weapons as the last dozen "terrorist" the FBI made up

The Boston "area" includes the location in question. In either case, the USSC ruling seems to apply to the state and, I imagine, local sub-divisions.

I don't have a dog in this fight, only seeking clarification, and an answer to the question, what--exactly--does a "lock down" mean. Notice also, the potential for a precedent.

I love how people throw around the words 'our ancestors' I personally have ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary war specifically at the battle of Concord which is not so far from Boston. Frankly I am disgusted to have seen goon squads in body armor stomping down the streets and disregarding property rights. The people of Watertown should be embarrassed rather than fist pumping the air and shouting U.S.A.
THERE WAS NO "HOT PURSUIT" AND THEREFORE NO CONSTITUTIONAL GROUND FOR THE BLATANT DISREGARD FOR THE BILL OF RIGHTS.

Congratulations sheeple, you passed another test. They already have a cell prepared for you at camp FEMA, I on the other hand won't be so unlucky, I am one of those they are reserving mass grave space for.
