By mid morning today, as Occupy Wall Street protesters marched around the perimeter of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, all signs that an FRPD (Federal Reserve Police Department) existed had disappeared. The FRPD patrol cars and law enforcement officers had been replaced by NYPD patrol cars and officers. That decision may have been made to keep from drawing attention to a mushrooming new domestic police force that most Americans do not know exists.

So with these new powers could they do any thing about an audit the fed bill? An audit could be construed as an attack on it? Wouldnt that be some thing, just have who ever proposed it arrested. Or could they use lethal force?

Heck yes there is a difference. The "Federal" reserve is no more "Federal" then federal express. The member banks own the federal reserve, which are a few well known names that helped wreck the economy. Giving them a police force is like the Mexican Drug Gangs creating a "police force".
(All/or most of the above is my opinion; except the part about the federal reserve being owned by member banks and not the government)
SEC. 364. UNIFORM PROTECTION AUTHORITY FOR FEDERAL RESERVE FACILITIES.
Section 11 of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 248) is amended by adding at the end the following:
`(3) Law enforcement officers designated or authorized by the Board or a reserve bank under paragraph (1) or (2) are authorized while on duty to carry firearms and make arrests without warrants for any offense against the United States committed in their presence, or for any felony cognizable under the laws of the United States committed or being committed within the buildings and grounds of the Board or a reserve bank if they have reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed or is committing such a felony. Such officers shall have access to law enforcement information that may be necessary for the protection of the property or personnel of the Board or a reserve bank.
