It was also a posse commitatus thing (crime scene), but the BPD probably wasn’t thinking along those lines.

Does posse commitatus apply to National Guard? Or just US Military?
Since the National Guard of each state is commanded by the governor of said state right?
Posse Commitatus only applies to federal troops.

How is the activation of state National Guard troops a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act?

(Take scalps. Leave the bodies as a warning.)
Posse Comitatus doesn’t apply since National Guard troops are under the command of the Governor unless called to Title 10 Activation by the President at such time they become regular military.

Posse Commitatus Act has to do with Federal troops, not National Guard (state troops).

"posse commitatus" only deals with Title 10, active duty. It does not concern National Guard on State Title 32 orders. It is legal for the National Guard of a State (or another state in which that state has a partnership...Like Tx does with LA) to be armed and working a scene...
This was not a posse commitatus thing...this was a Fed in control of everything thing.
