I live in Ocala as well. I went to West Port High School today, and there were absolutely no military at the school today. I have also emailed the
Ocala PD Chief, Marion County, Mayor of Ocala, and every board member on the county commissions. This a copy of what I sent. Pretty basic:
"I am a resident in Ocala, FL. I have lived here for almost 10 years. I have heard of other states and cities falling victim to the
unconstitutional deployment of military throughout the country. I didn't think that this would have come to Ocala.
In the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, and the Insurrection Act of 1807 states that it is to limit the powers of the federal government in using its
military personnel to act as domestic law enforcement personnel. The excuse of using it for drills is completely ridiculous. Are there not military
bases and training facilities specifically designed for such reasons?
If at all possible; could I get an explanation for allowing this? Can you give an answer to how long this drill will continue? Did the Marion
County Sheriffs have any say in this? The military will sure take over jurisdiction of the area; which means that our police departments could lose
their power to provide for the people of this city. Do you think the people of this city really enjoy the elected officials allowing the federal
government to deploy here? Also couldn't this look like this city's / county's officials have no control of the situation and have no public safety
policies in place to deal with problems on the city's / county's own accord?
Think about it this way. We elect officials to run the city / county; then those officials allow / bring in the military to practice drills to
protect the people. It would seem that the elected officials can't do their job, and possibly need to not be reelected? "
I have received a reply from a Major Bovaird. Who appears to be the creator and department head for Marion County Sheriffs Office Terrorist
Intelligence Unit and Counter Terrorism Unit. He responded by giving me his phone number and saying that he would be glad to discuss my concerns. I
plan on calling him, but I want to get quite a few questions prepared before I do. If you have questions for him let me know. I probably will wait a
few days. I still want to see the
