This is a direct vioaltion of constitutional law, and their jsut being sneaky about it...at moments notice, if they were told to harrass and arrest any american citizen a the checkpoint... game over for the perosn thier..unless they tried to run, and not get machine guned down..
This is a test, to see what citizens will do, when they try to get more troops into the citys across america..how or will we fight back..tis a trick gimmick

I get my facts from the fact that I am still involved with the military. My age is of no consequence, but if you must know, I have grandchildren.
That's my point, your 'involved'. In other words you put your own spin on this because you fear for personal retaliation if you dont go along with the injustice this stands for. You have no clue what this is all about, you are not 'in' the military.
As far as bars around military bases, you're ignorant.
That's rich Grandpa, I mean bars, clubs, dance halls, not iron bars.
And instead of arguing with me about what MP's know or don't know, go learn something about it first. It appears you just enjoy making up your mind without wanting to be bothered by details.
You are placing the highest volume of spin on this, not me. You say things that get the heads nodding in agreement, just simple known facts nothing special, then you throw in your own anger and resentments.
Let it go already. If you want to lose sleep over checkpoints in our little city, go ahead.
I sleep very well thank you very much. Yet I sleep with a clear conscience. I do not claim to be in the know and that helps tremendously, you should try it.
Spin it into whatever you want. You'll be more in danger of an alien abduction than the likes of us coming into your home.
There you go again, creating those little subtle barriers between you and me, why would you say 'us' coming into 'your' home? I doubt you'll be called up on this one, not the future which this action could be heading 'us' towards. No amount of past service will help, this is an all new playing field.
There are PLENTY of conspiracies to be had out there...underground bases, black projects, etc. THOSE are worthy of conversation, but not this.
There you go again, I am nodding in agreeance...
ONLY when they encountered a military person driving drunk did they get involved.
So you are saying that they are not only learning from the CHP how to identify a Military drunk on public roads verses the regular folk, but that this is a special bonding for the Military and CHPS?
Policing their own, that's it.
Same ole rhetoric shining through while you drive the under current of us against them... Da da daaaaa.
Marines take care of their own, good or bad, but if you've never served in the Marine Corps, you wouldn't understand....you can't even come close to understanding.
OK so how many brain damaged, limbless, homeless and down and out Marines have you taken in lately?
How many times have you seen the MP's hanging out in towns on a Friday night during the Holidays watching for their own? Oh other than that one episode of Andy Griffith when Gomer Pile goes into town on a date and gets in trouble? (That was a good one)
You underestimate the very people you loath....
EXCUSE ME??? You stand corrected. You Sir are the only one claiming to loath here.
one day, they may just save your sorry *ss from a REAL threat. Then what?
When that day comes I have plenty of brothers, sons and nephews that will be fighting right along side them. AND FYI, I would have their back in a heartbeat. I have a hell of a lot of love for my country and that is genetic and part and parcel for my heritage in this Country.
You are buying into media propaganda, perpetrated by the media.
I would never have to turn on faux news again if I listen to you, you sound like the very measure of what they stand for, you are touting their mission statement almost exactly. I quit Msm after 911. I was insulted by the fact that 2 weeks after the hit, they were telling the families it was time to put closure on it and moving on to the Iraq agenda ad nauseum. You are more filled with propaganda and flag waving separatism than I could ever be. You cannot claim to be Semper Fi, and then throw out your allegiance solely to your Military buddies here on the forum, yet speak this way with unfounded accusations towards a fellow American and forum member you do not even come close to knowing.
I can tell you what they are, but you probably won't care about that either.
OH? really, you have my attention, I am always open to listening to another forum members views if they feel strongly about their convictions and want to 'inform'...

Why would the military need to observe for DUI in the first place. That is not a military duty.
United States military police are prohibited from enacting state police powers and domestic peace officer powers under the Posse Comitatus Act, a federal law passed in 1878. MPs may enforce certain limited powers, such as traffic stops, on access roads and other federal property not necessarily within the boundaries of their military base or installation.
The Posse Comitatus Act applies specifically to the U.S. Army (and, by extension the U.S. Air Force which evolved from a service of the Army under the National Security Act of 1947). The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps are not included in the statute but the Department of the Navy (which oversees both services) adopted the statute by regulation. The only military armed service entirely exempt from the act is the United States Coast Guard, as their mission include enforcement of law afloat;
Backers of illegal immigration at a rally near Los Angeles took down an American flag at a U.S. post office, stamped on it and replaced it with a Mexican flag as police looked on, according to witnesses and a video of the event.
Police officers in Maywood, Calif., Saturday eventually came to the pole to remove the flag but had bottles and rocks thrown at them, a radio listener named Sandra reported to the Terry Anderson show, heard on KRLA in Los Angeles.

wow. I cannot believe this thread made it this far. So overreacted over some basic COP training on DUI procedures. It is a shame that simple procedures can get out of hand on this website that says to "deny Ignorance." I guess its time to find another website that would "deny ignorance" and forget this playground for trolls.
