(*** SEE READER RESPONSES ***) Marines, civilian police officers conduct urban training exercise (What Posse Comitatus?)
Thursday was the final day of exercises for law enforcement and marines who have gone through special reaction team training at Camp Lejeune for the past three weeks. In the final exercise, teams were presented with a series of real life scenarios as well as hands on instruction to handle them correctly.
“I think it’s always good when you get an opportunity to work on some similar tactics and procedures so that everybody’s kind of operating on the same page. That way when you bring teams together from active dutyand the civilian side, it makes the integration a whole lot smoother.”
The tactics trainees take away from this course just may help save lives. This three week SRT training course is phase one for law enforcement and Marine Corps personnel. Phase two will focus on sniper and designated marksmanship training.

Can somebody explain to me why the active duty military is training civilian police from around the nation to work WITH them in combined operations? Anybody ever heard of the Posse Comitatus Act? I understand the military using role-players to practice working with FOREIGN police. And I understand civilian police getting SWAT training. But why are the Marines practicing WITH police to conduct combined ops, here in America? Are we still the USA, or the USSA? When did this happen?

What “INTEGRATION?” What the hell is going on in America? Is it related to the billion hollowpoint bullets the DHS is buying?
“Phase two will focus on sniper and designated marksmanship training.”
Oh, joy! Welcome to the USSA, comrades!
