- The Military is Now Preparing to Take Over for the Police Across the United States (Liberty Blitzkrieg, May 14, 2013):
There are several things one would want to accomplish ahead of the formation of a totalitarian state. One of these is to fill the minds of the citizenry with mindless propaganda and make them terrified to death of an outside enemy. Check. Another is to disarm the population. Working on it. Yet another would be to militarize the police, or even better have the military itself take responsibility for law and order in communities across the nation. The reason that this is so important is that a military force “policing” a random area has no connection to the community itself. This makes them by definition much less accountable to the people they are supposedly protecting. Plus, they are trained to kill. Sadly, it appears that the Department of Defense is looking to use the military across the streets of America.
From The Long Island Press:
The lines blurred even further Monday as a new dynamic was introduced to the militarization of domestic law enforcement. By making a few subtle changes to a regulation in the U.S. Code titled“Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies” the military has quietly granted itself the ability to police the streets without obtaining prior local or state consent, upending a precedent that has been in place for more than two centuries.
The most objectionable aspect of the regulatory change is the inclusion of vague language that permits military intervention in the event of “civil disturbances.” According to the rule:
“Federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances.”
