Im sorry but how is this martial law? Is a state of emergency the exact same thing as martial law? Have military forces replaced policemen in AZ? Or have any government officials been replaced by military personell? Or is this just some kind of threat?

I do not know, but if in fact this is damage control as suggested, then if I look a little deeper I am tending to believe that things are only holding together by a string that is ready to snap. Is this a beginning of a time that authority figures are becoming fully aware of the peoples restlessness and things could go a way the authority figures do not want it to go? Are they really beginning to worry about what we the people may be close to doing in this country? Are they aware we are getting close to collectively standing up and pointing our middle fingers at them?edit on 13-7-2011 by Skewed because: (no reason given)

I can't remember the name of the movie or town it was about, but it was a true story about some towns people who got fed up with a family terrorizing the rest of the town and some residents plotted and carried out an execution of this family in broad daylight. I saw a news piece years ago where the feds are still trying to determine who the shooters were and were pissed they couldn't get answers.

So the military industrial complex has the most power, and politicians have the least?!
I think something is wrong with this line of reasoning.

Apathy is quite a powerful tool in the 21st century.

I hate to be nit-picky, but your title is a bit sensationalized and actually signals a much more grave and urgent happening. Martial law would require complete military control over the jurisdiction. To my understanding he, along with the council, have declared a state of emergency.
I'm not downplaying the facts of the matter, as these morons must be hiding something. Thank you for bringing it to our attention, I do mean that. I'm just a stickler for proper designations.

Jennifer Jones: AZ Police Chief Declares Martial Law After Being Exposed on Infowars.com
(visit the link for the full news article)
Quartzsite Police Chief Jeff Gilbert has asked the town council to declare a “state of emergency” due to all of the publicity the town has received over the arrest of a reporter at an open meeting in June.
The town council voted 5-0 in favor of the action; Mayor Ed Foster did not attend the emergency meeting Sunday afternoon. Gilbert reportedly said the action was needed because Jennifer Jones was “inciting riots” after videos of her arrest at the meeting sprung up across the Internet.
