A Stability Police Force for the United States: RAND CORP CALLS FOR NATIONAL POLICE FORCE???
RAND COPORATION ^ | 2009 | By: Terrence K. Kelly, Seth G. Jones, James E. Barnett, Keith Crane, Robert C. Davis, Carl Jensen

Posted on 01/12/2010 6:29:19 AM PST by RaceBannon

I know someone who purchased this from RAND.

By page 19 this report goes from discussing the need for a Special Police Force overseas to supplement interventions, to suddenly needing a force that can circumvent Posse Comitatus.

Posse Comitatus exists for a reason and any attempt to circumvent it, not matter how nicely packaged, is a step on the way to "Special" police becoming "Secret" police.

They call it :A STABILITY POLICE FORCE: This study asks several questions. First, is a Stability Police Force (SPF) necessary? An SPF is a high-end police force that engages in a range of tasks such as crowd and riot control, special weapons and tactics (SWAT), and investigations of organized criminal groups. In its ability to operate in stability operations, it is similar to such European forces as the Italian Carabinieri and French Gendarmerie. Its focus on highend tasks makes it fundamentally different from UN or other civilian police, who deal with more routine law and order functions. It is also different from most military forces, which are generally not trained and experienced to conduct policing tasks in a civilian environment. Second, if an SPF is necessary, what should it look like? This includes considering such issues as: its objectives, tasks, and size; its speed of deployment; its institutional capabilities; where it should be headquartered in the U.S. government and how it should be staffed (standing force, reserve force, and hybrid force); and its cost.

We already have one - or should. Read the Second Amendment!

Does the Rand Corporation want to make sure more Americans own personal firearms? :)

A Stability Police Force for the United States
Justification and Options for Creating U.S. Capabilities

By: Terrence K. Kelly, Seth G. Jones, James E. Barnett, Keith Crane, Robert C. Davis, Carl Jensen

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.

>>What do you think is going to happen when the white man riots?

The Clash - White Riot

White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own

Black man gotta lot a problems
But they don't mind throwing a brick
White people go to school
Where they teach you how to be thick

An' everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
An' nobody wants
To go to jail!

White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
All the power's in the hands
Of people rich enough to buy it

While we walk the street
Too chicken to even try it

Everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
Nobody wants
To go to jail!

White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own

Are you taking over
or are you taking orders?
Are you going backwards
Or are you going forwards?

White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own

1) INTERPOL can operate in the US and is not bound by the US Constitution.
2) Obama signed an executive order establishing a Council of Governors with scary powers.

3) We’re moving toward a national police force.

Put it all together — the Clampdown’s coming this year.

From Page 16 of the report: How Would an Stability Police Force Be Used?

“The answer to this question depends on the situation into which an SPF
might be inserted. The SPF could be used for missions such as: shaping

an environment before a conflict; law enforcement duties in an active
conflict environment; or security, stability, transition and reconstruction

(SSTR) operations after a conflict. It could operate as an independent
entity under a U.S. ambassador or a UN Senior Representative

to the Secretary General (SRSG), or as a force element reporting to a Joint
Task Force (JTF) commander. In this latter case, the SPF would

probably not be used as a standing unit, for example to hold an area of
operations, but rather as the provider of small, highly qualified highend

law enforcement capabilities to the joint force, to be task organized 27 See
The United States v. Worral, 2 U.S. 384, 1798. with other units to meet the
overall needs of the JTF.”

Crimes on the Rise Due to Recession Say Police Agencies
February 09, 2009 by Jimmy Collins

Police Worry that Budget Cuts Will Hinder Their Ability to Fight Back

In every recession since the 1950s, crime as gone hand and hand with the economic decline (source: news.yahoo.com). Now amidst budget cuts for many police departments across the country police agencies say that crime is once again raising as the economy falls and their ability to fight back may be hindered.

With a bad economy come lost jobs, lost savings and lost pride. People grow increasingly desperate and many times will turn to crime to try to make ends meet. But along with that comes the career criminals who can now, thanks to budget cuts, commit crimes at a more successful rate as police departments are literally "hand cuffed" when it comes to mounting an offensive or a defensive.

With a usual budget, police departments are able to focus overtime hours and special task forces to concentrate on high crime areas. Now that many police departments across America are being forced to cut back, a great deal of special programs aimed at combating these high crime areas will have to suffer (source: news.yahoo.com).

How bad is it?

Of 233 police agencies surveyed by Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) 63 percent of the departments were planning budget cuts for the next fiscal year. PERF said on average these agencies planned on cutting their budgets by about 6.24 percent and many of the agencies have already preformed cuts recently. On the flip side a staggering 44 percent of the agencies surveyed said they had seen an increase in crime (source: news.yahoo.com).

The overall budget cuts really speak to how bad the economy is getting as police funding is generally the last thing to suffer. Local agencies and governments are usually reluctant to cut funds because public safety is usual viewed as a top priority (source; News.yahoo.com).

The PERF report showed exactly where the increase in crime was coming from as well. Of the 100 agencies that linked crime increasing to the economic crisis, 39 percent said they had seen an increase in robberies, 32 percent a rise in burglaries and 40 percent an increase in thefts from vehicles (source: news.yahoo.com). But a solution does not seem forthcoming."

This article was written a year ago. We now have the perfect storm to set up the "National Police Force".

The "elites" need to understand that this isn't going to help them. We are a nation of 300 million. The people in the government can be changed, the government itself can be changed, but those 300 million people aren't going anywhere.

What would a small riot police force do if 300 million people calmly and rationally decided we wanted to change leadership and ignored our current leaders in favor of a new government?

It’s almost inevitable.
Its ostensible purpose is law enforcement. It’s anti-crime. Most people are now too stupid to grasp what’s wrong with it and how it violates the spirit of America. And it’ll require a lot of taxes to fund. Finally something really big, expensive and wrong that R’s and D’s can agree on.

Thus the need for “radical population control/reduction”.

This is part of the agenda. It is one of the “solutions” to “global warming”.

While this is a study and scary didn’t I read that obama created a civilian security force housed in the DOD but not one of the armed forces brances so it does not come under posse cimmitatus?
This was a detailed executive order that would have used some DOD people and even retired DOD people.
I swear I read the EO last fall but can’t find it.

Obama has already started this. I will try to find it
does anyone know?

Any attempt at this will result in a revolution.

WE do not want, need, nor support a national security force under this bastard or any successor to him.

This is treason and planned violence against the American People, the Constitution and our basic freedoms. It violates the established role of local control of police forces by the state and local government.

Who the hell is the Rand Corporation to dictate to American government how to conduct domestic policy? Who are these people anyway? Do they have globalist connections?

Carabinieri INDEED!!!! Perhaps VOPOS or Gestapo is more appropriate.

This should generate a LANDSLIDE of outraged letters from Americans to that Bastard in the Oval Office and each an every one of those craven, pandering, narcissistic, self-serving harlots in Congress.

This is armed conflict, civil war level stuff and they know it.
