Now that you mention it. Ilive in Louisville, KY. Home of Churchill DOwns (my place of employment) and KY Derby. Derby ran May 2 this year. We had military police running traffic control and patrolling the streets, as Derby is a major event and brings 1 million+ tourists to Louisville. But being as it has been over for lil over a month now they should have left, right?
There are still MANY military police patrolling our streets. I got pulled over, handcuffed, name and social security number ran, then searched, before being released, on my way to work the other day by one of these units. This is becoming common place here. Official reason behind them pulling me over, was they were looking for drug dealers and I have a nice car. It's not just NYC, its all over, and it's increasing.

HR 645 could be used, were it to be adopted, in the case of public health emergency. It obviously bears a direct relationship to the economic crisis and the likelihood of mass protests across America. It constitutes a further move to militarize civilian law enforcement, repealing the Posse Comitatus Act.
In the words of Rep. Ron Paul:
“…the fusion centers, militarized police, surveillance cameras and a domestic military command is not enough… Even though we know that detention facilities are already in place, they now want to legalize the construction of FEMA camps on military installations using the ever popular excuse that the facilities are for the purposes of a national emergency. With the phony debt-based economy getting worse and worse by the day, the possibility of civil unrest is becoming a greater threat to the establishment. One need only look at Iceland, Greece and other nations for what might happen in the United States next.” (Daily Paul, September 2008, emphasis added)
