I predict Martial Law will be imposed throughout the USA by friday. National Guard is patrolling the city starting tonight. I'm told we can't leave until 7am. This was the purpose of covid to see how it would work. This is bullshit. I'm amazed it was this easy for the government to do this.

Cmon slice, you're smarter than this. Do you know what martial law actually means or would look like?

It's the suspension of civil law. No I don't know what it would look like. Military is detaining anyone caught out after curfew.

Right, with a military Take over of civil authority . That's just not possible in the states. I don't know where you are at but the natl guard has no law enforcement powers . Around here, they are mostly assisting with traffic control. It is unfortunate that people will take advantage of a bad situation to make it worse.

It’s legal and possible.

The consequences of the blowback would be devastating.

It would tear the country appart if Martial law were declared in this case.

Legal? Ish.
Possible? No.

There aren’t enough military and LE in the country that would be willing to take up arms against the general public and their freedoms.

National Guard for rioters and looters is very different than martial law.

Let me be more clear.

It is constitutional.

It is certainly possible (though unlikely) that it could be called for.

How you think our servicemen would chose to react is your opinion.

I am shocked you categorize those *s as "the general public".

Freedoms to roit, loot and burn other people's property. Got it?

That's the big question, for this occasion or any other for which one segment of America might be turned against Americans by our Leaders at any level. There is a precedent, however:

Kent State University, Kent, Ohio, 1970. Anti-war protest, Ohio National Guard called in. I'll leave it to others here to form their own opinions as to whether protesters deserve to be killed, but part of the story here is that the 13 Americans who were shot were not at the front lines assaulting any form of LE. Bullets travel far, and these 13 were relatively far away, just going about their business. Four were killed, 9 wounded, including one who was paralyzed. One of the four dead in Ohio was a R.O.T.C. student. In very round numbers, all involved in any way might have been around 20yo then, 70yo now, some might have died from unrelated causes in the 50 yrs since. America vs. America, by order of some American. Fifty yrs later, no one has ever been prosecuted for any charge.

Let me be more clear as well. Whether it’s legal or possible for it to be called for by those who have no skin in the fight, there aren’t ENOUGH military, police, govt agency men, etc, that are willing or able to lockdown this country.

We are all the general public. I was separating the difference between needing military assistance to shut down the rioting and destruction, and the need for military to take over policing of the people in general.

Nobody has the freedom to commit crimes without penalty. Nobody was saying that.
