(UPDATED 09.20.10) HR 675 TO GIVE DOD POLICE OFFICERS AUTHORITY TO EXECUTE WARRENTS, MAKE ARRESTS AND CARRY FIREARMS (ORIGINALY PUBLISHED 26 MAY 09)

DOD POLICE = MILITARY POLICE

DOD POLICE = NATIONAL POLICE FORCE

What this means is the civilian/DOD Police who also augment the active duty military police, will have authority to arrest you and serve warrants and use firearms to do so.  This allows the government to use the DOD/Title 5 police to perform duties normally reserved for the civil authorities and greatly increases the numbers of police available to be used.  DOD is used all over the United States in both the regular military services and the National Guard system as well.  I know because I was a military police officer almost 30 years serving in both the regular AND the Guard.  This makes it very easy to move these people into use and quell the civilian populace for whatever purpose our government deems necessary.  The “Posse Comitatus Act” , which was recently rescinded make it easy for the Government to use the military against the citizenry.  This is just an extension of that.  This IS really scary.  Click the pic to go to the HR and click HERE to check the Bills current progress.

MUST HAVE HIT A NERVE!!

I have been getting some interesting comments on this article.  A couple from someone who claims to have helped write this HR of which I posted, and then a couple from someone else stating that I am in fact a liberal………..Well, nothing could be farther from the truth as anyone who knows me will attest.  It is laughable and obviously meant to piss me off.   So, bearing that in mind and after all I was being told I had a totally wrong read of this HR by this person, I went back and re-read it just to be sure, and by golly, you know what? I WAS RIGHT IN MY FIRST ASSESSMENT ALL ALONG!!   These people that are sooo in favor of this HR want the DOD Police Officers to have authority in the civilian sector plain and simple, otherwise this HR would not be proposed to begin with.  They know exactly what they are doing by trying to get this HR approved.  As there are may bases and many Federal buildings around the nation, I imagine there is quite a few of these officers all over the States.  So, if this HR passes, it will give the DOD police authority outside their areas of responsibility and will amount to the formation and legitimization of a defacto national police force.  Is this appropriate?  Are these the actions of a government that has the ideals of the Founding Fathers in mind?  Is this another step in the wrong direction?  Towards a “police state”, all in the name of fighting terrorism?  I think so.  So, I reiterate, I must have hit a nerve otherwise these people would not be attacking me and my conservative ideals.  And by the way, my performance during my entire military career was above reproach and I retired with honors.  I know I am a patriot………..  But what I want to know is, why are the liberals sooooo longing to be controlled by as many authorities as possible.  I don’t understand that…….  If they are so pro Democracy, why do they aspire to Marxism and/or Socialism?  In my opinion, you are no kind of patriot if you believe in those or aspire to those ideals. (No matter how deluded you are now to that fact)  And, oh, by the way, you libs that sent your comments, don’t bother any more.  This is MY website and I will not allow you to spread your ideals here.  You can have your own forums and do.  Look at the mainstream news….. I will not approve your comments and will not even read or entertain them. They will be deleted out of hand.  Simple as that.  How do you like being treated like you treat others of different opinions and views?  I though the Democrat Party was one of equality and fairness and brotherly love?       NOT!!

HERE IS THE HR AS PUBLISHED BY OPEN CONGRESS.  READ IT AND DETERMINE FOR YOURSELF WHAT THEIR INTENTIONS ARE.

A BILL

‘Sec. 1585b. Law enforcement officers of the Department of Defense: authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms

LETTER TO MY REPS ON THIS:

H.R.675

To amend title 10, United States Code, to provide police officers, criminal investigators, and game law enforcement officers of the Department of Defense with authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms.

In reading this HR, I find it very troubling, as it will allow for the formation of a defacto national police force as these DOD Officers are all over the United States and will have authority over the public away from their normal duty locations. I don’t think that the citizenry of the United States and your constituents would like this idea and I urge you to vote down this HR in it’s current form. The threat of terrorism should not be used as an excuse for this abuse of the public trust. If more Police Officers are needed, they need to be appropriated at the State, County and City levels only. I trust you will explain to me how this HR will not amount to the formation of said Police Force in your reply. But I do believe you are going to be hard pressed to explain how it will not. The verbiage in this HR is clear. As always, we here are watching your voting record and will use it as a guide in future elections.

UPDATE 03.26.10

HEY ALL YOU DOD COPS THAT KEEP SENDING ME HATE MAIL,…..GET OVER IT….ALL YOUR DOING IS PROVING MY POSITION AND OPINION ON THIS ISSUE TO EVERYONE.

UPDATE 08.25.10

This Bill STILL has not moved in Congress and as of this date it is still in committee.  WRITE YOUR REPS ON THIS AND TELL THEM NO!

(To all you sending me hate comments on this; Get used to the fact you’re not going to get your way on this. To be honest, I am really quite surprised at how many Marxist types there are out there in our government who really think that they should have the authority and power to exercise their will on the general population at large.  All in the name of “Keeping us safe and getting the bad guys.  Problem is, with a corrupt government that even categorizes veterans and patriots who have served with honor “Right Wing Extremists”, the rest of the population has also been “pigeon-holed” into some sort of extremist group as reported in this DHS report.  So why else would these people want the authority to arrest you?  Because they want to have the ability all over the US to have another national police force at the disposal of the Feds without spending a lot more money to form another agency.  It’s not conspiracy theory stuff, just the plain truth of the matter. THERE IS NO REASON WE AS A PEOPLES SHOULD TRUST YOU WITH THIS AUTHORITY AS DEMONSTRATED BY THE HATE COMMENTS)

UPDATE 092010

This Bill STILL has not moved in Congress and as of this date it is still in committee.  WRITE YOUR REPS ON THIS AND TELL THEM NO!

PS..All you lib power freaks, too bad, this monstrosity still hasn’t moved……

    This Blog, while well written, is not very thoroughly researched. Many of the doomsday predictions made are little more than knee jerk reactions based more on emotion and fear than reality. Many euphamistic perjoratives are utilized, and then repeated in what appears to be more of an attempt to belittle and squelch opposing opinions than foster meaningful debate. Granted, there are replies guilty of the same thing, however, many replies are from the people you pre-suppose are going to abuse the power given them, and were the first aggrieved. Such examples are calling your detractors liberals, with police state agendas, and then taking spelling as an indicator or cogent thought. You then call them marxists, and when they derail and demean you in the same way you show this as proof positive of the righteousness of your position. Its a fallacy, and as evident by your prior posts, you are not interested in a rigorous debate, just a pulpit. Too bad too, when not berating your readers, you make eloquent, insightful and compelling points that are worth discussing civily.

      I am amazed that this old post keeps the Libs stirred up like this. I want to thank all of you Lib/Progressives for commenting and exemplifying exactly the points I have made in this post. Keep up the good work! The true Patriots of this great nation need to see the lows you people will resort to in order to push your sick agenda. Have a good day!

    Well I am not a DOD cop but I have to say you sure hate these guys for SOME reason…perhaps one arrested you once?? This bill would be no different than giving NCIS, THE FBI, US Customs or Army or Air Force civilian CID special agents the same authority, which they all have. With all of the recent movement in Congress, it looks like the DOD Police will soon get the authority since they, as CIVILIAN employees of the Executive Branch of the government, do NOT fall under Posse Comatatus. Do your research and the truth will smack you in the face. I’m sorry but I truly believe you have had a bad run in with a DOD police officer at some point, it’s pretty obvious. Remember, ALL civilian CID officers already have statutory authority and if you mess up they will also snatch you up. GET USED TO IT.

      Like I said the the other idiot, written in the language of a true liberal hater, always missing the point.

    Damn, conservativeamericanvet, seems lime everyone here is wrong but YOU. HAVE YOU CONSIDERED PSYCHIATRIC HELP?? I am a vet also and have looked deep, seep into this issue. Seems like maybe your wife had an affair with a DOD cop. Perhaps?? Yes, I know what your answer is….I’m part of the problem too. lol. You should audition for the Jerry Springer show. Lol ITS HAPPENING, AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU OR YOUR LIBERAL WEBSITE CAN DO TO STOP IT. Perhaps the final answer for you is to start mingling with civilians instead of those with personality disorders like yourself. And I don’t ever believe that YOU sir were ever in the military. Those I know who have been certainly don’t act like you do. Buy a cabin in the mountains and enjoy life. Lol
