Before folks get all hyper, you have to realize that US Army personnel can routinely be sent into a non-war zone (outside of the US), and directed to handle a civil disturbance situation on a post (CONUS and Overseas), a US protected area, or in a Earthquake/disaster zone. It’s best that they are trained to react with minimal force, and gradually counter the disturbance.
This is the internet. Anything can be proof of everything.
Of course that’s true. Under what other president have they trained in public places on US soil?
Before folks get all hyper...Good luck with that around here.
I got to spend my basic and AIT at Ft. McClellan when the MP school was still there.
Yes, the training included riot, civil disturbance, disaster response, MOUT, etc.
We also were just about beat over the head to make sure we unequivocally understood the "Posse-Comitatus" act, (briefly) that the military can not be used to enforce civilian law.
The MP's you see in the Army today are our sons and daughters. Just like your own group of friends and associates, they are just as varied. But regardless of what you may have been led to believe, they are endeavoring to do you *proud*. Every MP I personally know, now or since, would be devastated to know they let you down when you needed them most. The military's got it bad enough having the distinctly embarrassing stain of serving under 0bama. They dang sure don't deserve *unearned* flak from us.
So until they earn different, I say we give them the benefit of the doubt and have a bit of faith.
