Posse Comitatus limitations
« on: October 25, 2005, 01:41:27 AM »

What good is it really?  Apparently there is any number of loopholes.

Not to mention Bush is obviously trying to get rid of it.

President George W. Bush asked Congress to consider giving him powers to use the military to enforce quarantines in case of an avian influenza epidemic.

If we had an outbreak somewhere in the United States, do we not then quarantine that part of the country? And how do you, then, enforce a quarantine?' Bush asked at a news conference. 'It's one thing to shut down airplanes. It's another thing to prevent people from coming in to get exposed to the avian flu. And who best to be able to effect a quarantine?' Bush added. 'One option is the use of a military that's able to plan and move. So that's why I put it on the table. I think it's an important debate for Congress to have.

Or more directly for the war on terrorism:

Any old excuse will do.  Avian flu?  But what I'm really worried about is when money supply is contracted and we hit our next depression.  Riots and whatnot are sure to occur, and that's when people get carted off to prison slave labor facilities and camps by military police force.  Or worse just shot:

I dig this guys take on the whole bit:

Sorry for the excess of links, but I'd like to start a discussion about this bit of legislation under review, so I thought I`d include a lot to discuss.  There isn`t a bill yet to my knowledge, but there soon will be I`m sure.
