Military Training In US Cities – It is Where They Expect to Operate…

This is a collection of links, in no particular order, to indicate that the Posse Comitatus Act is being violated, again.

The Posse Comitatus Act is the longstanding federal statute that restricts the government’s ability to use the U.S. military as a police force.

It sets a high bar for the use of federal troops in a policing role. That reflects America’s traditional distrust of using standing armies to enforce order at home, a distrust that’s well-justified.

What of ‘Posse Comitatus’?

This article appeared in the Akron Beacon Journal on October 7, 2005.

Having already wrecked a legendary American city, Hurricane Katrina may now be invoked to undermine a fundamental principle of American law: When it comes to domestic policing, the military should be a last resort, not a first responder.

On Sept. 26, President Bush urged Congress to consider revising federal laws so that the U.S. military could seize control immediately in the aftermath of a natural disaster, noting that “it may require change of law.”

The law the president seems to be referring to is the Posse Comitatus Act, the longstanding federal statute that restricts the government’s ability to use the U.S. military as a police force.

Sen. John Warner, R.-Va., chairman of the Armed Services Committee, also has signaled his desire to change the law.

Pentagon spokesman Lawrence Di Rita called Posse Comitatus a “very archaic” statute that hampers the president’s ability to respond to a crisis.
