CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) -- The Marine Corps has created its first law enforcement battalions - a lean, specialized force of military police officers that it hopes can quickly deploy worldwide to help investigate crimes from terrorism to drug trafficking and train fledgling security forces in allied nations.
The Corps activated three such battalions last month. Each is made up of roughly 500 military police officers and dozens of dogs. The Marine Corps has had police battalions off and on since World War II but they were primarily focused on providing security, such as accompanying fuel convoys or guarding generals on visits to dangerous areas, said Maj. Jan Durham, commander of the 1st Law Enforcement Battalion at Camp Pendleton.
The idea behind the law enforcement battalions is to consolidate the military police and capitalize on their investigative skills and police training, he said.

Because it will water down their ability to kill people and break things.
Ready for action when Obama seizes the election in Nov?
Military stands ready if needed at RNC, other conventions
What does the Marine Corps need with a permanent law enforcement batallion?
The Army has lots of them; they call them MPs.
Law enforcement is not in the Marine Corp job description.
Marines are created to blow stuff up, kill the enemy and destroy stuff.
If you want to fight a war, send a marine; if you want to train cops send the FBI or the Army’s MP Battalions.
There only 500 of them
Command slots for females?
Maybe, 500 now. How many in one year?
I do not like this development one bit. I think it’s scary.
When they’re pounding on your door, it won’t be to collect “Toys for Tots”.
I knew one MP who would beat himself with a pool cue to "desensitize" himself to being struck with blunt force weapons.
Their own Battalion though? That just sounds weird.
Stood my share of fire watch. Never did do SP while I was in Japan. Go figure...
Might be because it takes NCIS too long to arrive.
Now, we're going to have to fight marines.
Common practice in hard style martial arts.
Saw the kid sparring in the gym. Might have had desensitized arms and legs, but he had a glass jaw.
This article (Marine Battalions) is the implementation phase of Obamas civilian army.
We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that weve set. Weve got to have a civilian national security force thats just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.
Take a look at where we were in late 2009 and early 2010,

Yeah I forgot: it can’t happen here. :)
That’s exactly what looks to be happening. Obama was foiled in making his fedeyeen Obama when he first tried so the worms will try this route instead, first fouling the services to drive out the traditionalists to make room for their own ilk, then turning the military services into a private palace guard to protect the elitists in the Hague. That’s where it’s going eventually, bet on it. When they take all the honor and integrity out of the military as they are striving so hard to do, they will have to institute that mandatory service plan the liberals kept proposing ... when we no longer have a national culture or tradition worth protecting, and your families have been broken up as American families have been, and religion has ben supressed or befouled by political correctness, and our land property can be taken arbitrarily, just what will they have left us that is worth defending? Our pets?
“What are you guys who are afraid of more Marine MP’s doing that’s wrong?”
Help me out here. I don’t understand this sentence.
