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?
I think National Guard can interact with citizens, but they have to be armed and briefed in a simular manner to local law enforcement.
Ie. they cannot use howitzers and tanks to control riots etc....
NG is treated like reservists (or Landwehr)
It needs to be changed back to 100 state command.
Depends on whether they were on state guard status, Title 32 training status or Title 10 active duty. If state, governor is commander and can order them in. If federal, probably posse comitatus issue. My guess is they were there in their state guard status.
