    Marines and the police
    The following is supposedly a true story relating a situation that actually occurred in Los Angeles.

    The Marines were backing-up LAPD on a call that someone had broken into a store.

    At the scene, the cop told the Marines to "cover" him as he approched the store (to police, "cover" means to point your weapons in the direction of the threat, to Marines it means lay down a base of fire!).

    The Marines promptly laid down a base of fire. The Marines fired 178 rounds before they stopped shooting.

    The thief, probably a little scared at this point, called 911 and reported, "They're shooting at me!".

    I have NEVER heard of Marines backing up police in any civilian exercise, let alone a simple B&E. I am fairly certain it would violate Posse Commitatus (spelling?).
     
  4. Yes it is a violation just like Waco.

    Don't think this happened.......

    By the way. What is SPAM? Seems like maybe it's outlandish crud that really has no place here. Looks like it can get your membership plucked away in a heartbeat..........

    I posted this question in the feedback forum also.....

    SPAM is basicly electronic junk mail. This board has sponsers that pay to advertise here. When someone like this clown sneeks in under the wire and post links not related to guns, shooting ect... Not like someone who post or trys to post meaningfull information or ??? or a member got hay check out this link....be like going to wal-mart and handing out K-mart flyers inside the store.
