Military Employed For Crowd Control At College Football Game This Saturday

In yet another example of the blurring of the lines between civilian police and US military forces, Columbia, South Carolina police “officials” have announced that US Military Police from Ft. Jackson will be on the streets alongside civilian law enforcement after the South Carolina-Georgia football game this Saturday night, October 6.

According to reports by WISTV, Columbia will be spending more than $11,000 worth of overtime for 50 officers who will be placed in the Five Points and Vista areas after the game. The teams will be made up of University of South Carolina Campus Police, Richland County Sheriff’s Deputies, the South Carolina Highway Patrol, and Military Police from Ft. Jackson.

The plan will involve barricades, surveillance cameras, DUI checkpoints, and even observation towers “to keep the crowd under control.”

WISTV reports that the “Gang Unit,” “Narcotics Unit,” and the “Firearm Prevention Team,” “Quick Reaction Team,” and the “Special Unit For Quick Pickup of Detainees,” will be on hand for the massive police state buildup in Five Points. It should be noted that the “Firearm Prevention Team” will be receiving help from the ATF.

Citing a shooting and two mob assaults in the Five Points area after the South Carolina-Missouri game on Sept. 23 as justification for the Five Points buildup, Police Chief Les Wiser stated that regular police patrols would continue and that police presence in other parts of the city would not be limited.

While WISTV did state that the reason behind the presence of Ft. Jackson Military Police would be “in case any members of the armed forces are arrested,” it should be clear to all that US Military Troops working alongside civilian police is nothing more than a conditioning exercise designed to acclimate the American people to the sight of US Military troops acting as police and to see it as an ordinary event.

Unfortunately, the placement of military soldiers in civilian law enforcement capacity is not only aviolation of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, it is now an increasingly common occurrence.

In the last few years we have seen US Military troops deployed all over the country for the purpose of assisting domestic law enforcement. For instance, U.S. Army personnel were deployed to the streets of Samson, Alabama in 2009 for the purposes of aiding the local police in patrols after a gunman left 10 people dead.

Even more common, the US Military has been involved in aiding local and state law enforcement conducting roadblocks for some time, even, as was the case in Tennessee, amidst the objections of some state officials.

In Virginia, the National Guard has been involved in conducting “wellness checks” as well as patrolling downtown city locations and residential neighborhoods.

Yet, even more disturbing is the wholesale deployment of US troops inside the United States known as USNORTHCOM. As Susanne Posel of Occupy Corporatism writes:

USNORTHCOM and Leon Panetta, US Secretary of Defense, has readily admitted that US armed forces will collaborate with local law enforcement ‘if called upon’.

In fact, more than 20,000 troops were brought home and readied for deployment within the US to assist in ‘civil unrest and crowd control’.

The US military will prop up the US Secret Service ‘for operational security reasons we do not discuss the numbers of military personnel and resources that are involved. Additionally, we do not share our operational plans,’ said U.S. Navy Lt. Cdr. William G. Lewis.

The extent of use of military forces on civilian matters, as reported by mainstream media (MSM) have included the reallocation of hundreds of military police officers being trained to ‘assist local authorities’ in investigation, crime scene and case building.

An estimated 500 military police and dogs will be used as ‘law enforcement battalions’. These soldiers, having served on tours in Afghanistan, will now be activated and based out of military bases across America to help local police forces.

Clearly, the American people are being conditioned to accept the US Military as a domestic police force by the slow acclimation process of introducing military presence in a variety of different circumstances. Unfortunately, if there is any question as to whether or not the average American will be successfully duped by the conditioning effort being implemented by the US oligarchs, we need only look as far as the NFL, whose fans can now be subjected to the invasive TSA-style pat downs before entering the event.

If sports fans are willing to subject themselves to this form of demeaning treatment for the opportunity watch a game, then the mere presence of military personnel in the streets is not likely to alarm them.

    They never seem to have this kind of protections in dangerous neighborhoods.
    If people were smart most would stay home. When ticket sales and concession profits suffer they may do things a little different.
