RAND Corporation Blueprint for Militarized "Stability Police Force"


www.lewrockwell.com

The SPFOR (to use the inevitable acronym) would be a “hybrid” military/law enforcement unit created within the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) for use “in a range of tasks such as crowd and riot control, special weapons and tactics (SWAT), and investigations of organized criminal groups” — both abroad, in UN-directed multilateral military operations, and at home, as dictated by the needs of the Regime.

The Rand Corporation has released a study named "Stability Police Force for the United States: Justification and Creating U.S. Capabilities" and the study is for the purpose of creating a hybrid "military/law enforcement unit created within the U.S. Marshall service for a wide range of tasks, including riot control within the U.S. and also abroad.

If you read what this is about you will find that they are trying to find ways to get around the Posse Comitatus Act which forbids the use of military for law enforcement.

The following is part of what they are trying to achieve.


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.)

I wonder for what real reason they would need to do this...

Ah thanks, I did a search through the search engine of ATS, but nothing came out. Something has to be done because the search engine really doesn't work that well.

I have tried to search for old posts, but i have beeter luck using goggle and adding "abovetopsecret.com" to the search query, than using the ATS search engine.

Anyway, can a mod delete this please?
