Is This the Death of Posse Comitatus?

The Pentagon is pushing for the authority to post 400,000 troops on the streets of America for active patrol in the event of an “emergency”. (The President will arbitrarily get to decide what qualifies as an “emergency”).

This would violate the Posse Comitatus Act. Many state governors rightfully oppose the idea as the latest assault on states rights. The ACLU is on the correct side of this one:

Mike German, the ACLU’s national security policy counsel, expressed amazement “that the military would propose such a broad set of authorities and potentially undermine a 100-year-old prohibition against the military in domestic law enforcement with no public debate and seemingly little understanding of the threat to democracy.”

There is a dangerous trend here with the recent pushes for martial law. Notice that the push for martial law is always coming from those in power, not those who would be subject to it.
