Slanted journalism? No where do I see the famous phrase for non MP folks reading this to go and research.
It is called Posse Comitatus or US Code TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 67 > § 1385.
The Army said Wednesday it opened an inquiry into whether federal laws were broken when nearly two dozen Soldiers were sent to a south Alabama town after 11 people died in a shooting spree last week.
State officials said the deployment of 22 military police officers and the provost marshal from Fort Rucker was requested neither by Republican Gov. Bob Riley nor the White House, which typically is required by law for Soldiers to operate on U.S. soil.
So was it 23 or two dozen soldiers? In my world that does make a difference.
Can anyone say Katrina....Oh that was different...
Still a police action in my mind. Borders? Time for a change of federal law?
