It's not artificial contraints, you have people..kids, grammys, whoever, who were asleep in their beds when this all went down and he disappeared in the area and are holed up in their homes until the police come knock.
So what?

It's a densely-populated area
So what?

Every one of those people is a potential hostage or murder victim
So what?

These are police doing their jobs protecting the immediate public, not a military operation out to kill the guy despite what you think it looks like.
The military is present. That makes it a military operation, no matter what you might think.

edit: Here is a link that quite clearly identifies that the military is involved.

Boston police search neighborhood, National Guard called out | News OK

I it simply delusional to suggest that the Boston police force has enough manpower to shut down the city without the aid of the military.
