Justification and Options for Creating U.S. Capabilities
Establishing security is the sine qua non of stability operations, since it is a prerequisite for reconstruction and development. Security requires a mix of military and police forces to deal with a range of threats from insurgents to criminal organizations. This research examines the creation of a high-end police force, which the authors call a Stability Police Force (SPF). The study considers what size force is necessary, how responsive it needs to be, where in the government it might be located, what capabilities it should have, how it could be staffed, and its cost. This monograph also considers several options for locating this force within the U.S. government, including the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Secret Service, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) in the Department of State, and the U.S. Army's Military Police.
The authors conclude that an SPF containing 6,000 people created in the U.S. Marshals Service and staffed by a hybrid option, in which SPF members are federal police officers seconded to federal, state, and local police agencies when not deployed would be the most effective of the options considered. The SPF would be able to deploy in 30 days. The cost for this option would be $637.3 million annually, in FY2007 dollars.
Yeah, no thanks.
Glad to see the Police State getting their Christmas wish list in order.
They are going to keep on until the people have to
take their freedom in their own hands.
It won’t be pretty.
We can handle it ourselves thanks.
Elite Federalized police. This is getting scary.
“Civilian National Security Force”
Clever. Very clever. Someone should suggest that to the WH.........
would this be added to the civilian security force he so wants, the one which will match that of the military, just as well funded too.
We have a take over this country which has been planned for years and now they are in power we can kiss fair elections goodbye, we can kiss justice as we know it good bye.
Emperor bammy’s stormtroopers? Oh Yeah, that’ll end well.
You mean the Secret Service, NSA, CIA and FBI are not enough? Obama requires his own Gestapo???
Funny, our lack of a national police force was one of the reasons the Russians listed as a reason America could never be occupied.
..and they should wear black uniforms with distinctive red piping; with armbands, peaked hats, and high glossy leather boots. Officers should wear an assortment of badges and insignia that will serve to impress the populace being “stabilized”.
Or should they just dress like Judge Dredd?
The Posse Commitatus Act, while advisory and customary, is not equivalent to the Constitutional guarantee of border security to the several States. Further, the protections offered by Posse Commitatus, supposedly precluding the use of military force within the US are at best, illusory. I point you to USC Title X, Section 333( http://assembler.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode10/usc_sec_10_00000333——000-.html ):
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.
So you see, Congress gave the President the police power with enormous latitude well over 100 years ago, Constitutional or not (IMO, not).
You do realize, don’t you, that this report was commissioned by the US Army, and was issued nearly a year ago, under the Bush administration, right?
Oh please no more.

the TOTUS-reader has truly accomplished something historical — he has reconciled fascism and socialism.
This is what they reccomend during the Christmas season? I can’t wait to see what they call for during Easter.
Not much of a reconciliation in my opinion.
Under socialism there is no pretense of private ownership. Under fascism, business is “privately owned” but does as government demands....or else.
No, I did not. I would appreciate any links you may have so that I may learn more.
Just what we need in America. Another collection of jackbooted traitors to enforce tyranny and protect the Washington elite from the consequences of their unconstitutional conduct and actions.
I bet I’m on a list most of us are just for going to tea parties.
>>Under socialism there is no pretense of private ownership. Under fascism, business is privately owned but does as government demands....or else.<<
And we now have both! And clearly, soon the shredded remnants of the 4th Amendment will be tossed onto the decaying bodies of the 9th and 10th.
The revolution WILL be televised.
What happened to that thread you started this weekend? The one I commented on regarding the Posse Comitatus Act?
Are they going to wear red coats this time around too? I hope so. Easier to see.
That's about two storm troopers per US county.
There's about 36,000 sworn officers in the NYPD.
Just to keep things in perspective.
The authors are idiots. If the Feds create a "police force" like this, they're going to need a hell of a lot more than 6,000 people.
On the fourth page or so it says "The research described in this report was sponsored by the United States Army under Contract No. W74V8H-06-C-0001."
This page, which compiles Pentagon reports, shows the report date as January, 2009.
Hitler and his Gestapo come to mind along with the names Obama, Reid, Pelosi et al.
Never Again is here.
“range of threats from insurgents to criminal organizations”
OK start with the ones in DC and the Whitehouse
They have much smaller, miniscule version of this, already in the bomb sniffing dogs that are paid for with fed grant money.
The agency gets to use the dog but if and when the feds say they need the dog, the dog and handler must report for duty.
We are now at CONDITION TWO. Cock and Lock!!!!
Revolution is brewing!
Stability Police Force (SPF).
NO I am against this 100, 000, 000%. They probably wouldn’t even have to be sworn to defent the Constitution!~
From the cover sheet of the report:
Anyone know who these people are?
I suppose they think if they start it small it won’t be noticed as much and then they can add on.
This sort of crap is why I like things to be as local as possible.
Schools were better under local control, congressmen and senators were better under local control, police are better under local control.
Imagine how the leftists would screech at such a proposal during the Bush administration.
