The Marines are in DC to protect it from attack. I don't believe that violates posse commitatus ~ on the other hand, it's raining heavy off and on again around the DC area.

Not a good day for a demonstration.

These people do have a right to "protest" ~ and some of them will always be violent.

This evening a bunch of them will return to their hotels in this area. Their cars will be pryed open and looted by the local MS13 unit ~ they love the high end digital cameras this sort of people bring with them.

Justice will be done ~

This is not a protest, it's a coordinated nationwide campaign of vandalism. The First Amendment says "right to *peaceably* assemble and petition. This is not a peaceable action. The Riot Act 10 U.S.C. §§ 331-35 should be read, and then if the Shiite doesn't stop, heads should be cracked, and leaders, local and national should be arrested and hauled off to the Supermax.

§ 333. Interference with State and Federal law
The President, by using the militia or the armed forces, or both, or by any other means, shall take such measures as he considers necessary to suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy, if it—

(1) so hinders the execution of the laws of that State, and of the United States within the State, that any part or class of its people is deprived of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law, and the constituted authorities of that State are unable, fail, or refuse to protect that right, privilege, or immunity, or to give that protection; or

(2) opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.

In any situation covered by clause (1), the State shall be considered to have denied the equal protection of the laws secured by the Constitution.
...
§ 334. Proclamation to disperse
Whenever the President considers it necessary to use the militia or the armed forces under this chapter, he shall, by proclamation, immediately order the insurgents to disperse and retire peaceably to their abodes within a limited time.

Posse commitatus does not apply.

DC is a federal district.
