Posse comitatus is a thing. You really want the military doing a police action inside the United # States of America? Are you #ing insane?


Posse Comitatus has no application in this matter.


Exclusions and limitations

There are a number of situations in which the Act does not apply. These include:
Enforcement of federal law at the discretion of the President of the United States, such as with the 101st Airborne Division by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to integrate Little Rock Central High School in 1957.

Provide surveillance, intelligence gathering, observation, and equipment for domestic law enforcement on operations such as drug interdiction and counter-terrorism missions.

The Insurrection act was completely repealed and reverted back to the original law, which was way more restrictive than the one that was repealed. Obama made changes that allowed for Federal military use in certain civilian areas.
