You will if this goes into effect.
The research described in this report was sponsored by the United States Army..
The RAND study, which was conducted for the U.S. Army’s Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, recommended using the Marshals Service rather than the US Army’s Military Police as host for the SPFOR in order to avoid conflicts with the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids (albeit in principle more than in practice) the domestic use of the military as a law enforcement body.
“The USMS hybrid option … provides an important nondeployed mission for the force: augmenting state and local agencies, many of which currently suffer from severe personnel shortages,” states the report without explaining how the SPFOR could at once “augment” those under-manned agencies while at the same time being “augmented” by them if necessary.
That little lapse in logic is one of several indications that the report’s authors weren’t so much addressing a “problem” as making a case for a preordained “solution” — in this case, creating the vanguard of a militarized internal security force.
Building the SPFOR within the Marshals Service “would place it where its members can develop the needed skills under the hybrid staffing option,” summarizes the document. “Furthermore, the USMS has the broadest law enforcement mandate of any U.S. law enforcement agency…. [This model] provides significant domestic policing and homeland security benefits by providing thousands of additional police officers across the United States.” (Emphasis added.)

The only tell tale aspect (or give away) is that the ARMY paid for the study which means the end result of said study was already pre-concieved and thus, paid for. ...
Thats like paying Jeffery Dahlmer to provide a study on cannabalism.
Why commission such a study?

That protection is the 2nd amendment. The collective wealth of the nation is greater than the nation it self. That is why they constantly want to strip our rights to defend ourselves away from us and make it really hard and difficult to defend ourselves.
There are way more armed citizens in the country than the government could afford. Now if we were all trained it would be a nightmare scenario for anybody attempting to install a dictatorship in the US. That is why they have gone after the monetary system, education system, and implemented a progressive income tax. They want to be able to control how we think, they want to control the financial sector and they want the power to be able to reach into our pockets and take as much money from them anytime they please.
Now the obvious reaction to this "study" by RAND is the fact that the reason why they even want this is not so much to get around the posse comutatus(sp?) act, but because they need more people to try to keep an out of control citizen under control. Which is impossible they know they are fighting a losing battle, but they believe it could be over come.
The problem is they are fighting the most formidable fighting force in the world that they themselves have trained. That also have access to all the firepower that they need.

Has it ever occurred to you paranoid losers that if the US establishment decided it wanted to kill all the non-conformists it could do so in a weekend? We have all your names and internet monikers on file, keep it up dummies, we'll see you at the end of our sniper sights.
America is great, you just can't handle that, and if things ever get rocky we will start with all the commie-pinkos on the internet who spread lies about the U-S-A.
I'm looking at you.
Shut your collective mouths before I shut them for you. You all need to play some pigskin and drink some beer, instead of jerking off into small vessels and emailing yoursleves plans of where you will live after the great pinko uprising.
I love Oklahoma and the USA, I killed small brown people to keep it that way and I intend to be celebrated for my patriotic heroism and machismo and not be chastised by faglords who have never handled a weapon or faced any greater threat than somebody putting a negative emoticon on a reply to their post.

WASHINGTON — Conservative bloggers and opinion outlets in recent days have expressed mounting alarm about an executive order by President Obama that extended certain diplomatic privileges and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization, better known as Interpol.
Bloggers have accused Mr. Obama of ceding American sovereignty, painting a portrait of an international police force operating on United States soil without legal restraints. They have also argued that the order is part of a plot to allow international courts to arrest and prosecute American officials for war crimes.
