This artical below...talks about the Posse Comitatus Act (Title 18 Section 1385), ... not useing milatary as police aginst us citizens...what do you all think...does the use a spy planes to catch the sniper violate it? Should we "Bend" the laws and use them if it does? by AL MARTIN It has been reported that the Pentagon plans to use the ARL - Airborne Reconnaissance Low - aircraft to hunt for the so-called DC Sniper(s). The lawsuit filed by the ACLU, however, has delayed its use. It's probable that this suit will be dismissed under pressure from the Bush Administration. When it's announced, it will be a direct contravention of the Posse Comitatus Act (Title 18 Section 1385), which limits the use of the military in domestic law enforcement. The irony is that there is overwhelming public support for the use of the military aircraft. Ultimately lawsuits or not - the aircraft will be used - and in fact it's very likely that it probably has been used already. Using the 24/7 geo-synchronous satellites would also be abrogating the act because these are military satellites. When the sniper is caught, they'll claim that it's because of the use of this equipment, which will then garner further support for the overturning of Posse Comitatus, which will come at a time that the Bush Administration regains control of Congress.
