How do you get around the Posse Comitatus Act?

Easy: first you transform all agencies into law enforcement agencies, then you equip these new law enforcement agencies with military gear, and finally, you gather them up under the control of the executive branch
We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. 
- Barack Obama 
If not Obama, then the next president, or the next. It's coming, folks. Be ready.


The ball is rolling.
The NYPD will launch a unit of 350 cops to handle both counterterrorism and protestsriding vehicles equipped with machine guns and riot gear — under a re-engineering plan to be rolled out over the coming months. 
The Strategic Response Group, or SRG, will be devoted to “advanced disorder control and counterterrorism protection,” responding to the sort of demonstrations that erupted after the Eric Garner grand jury decision and also events like the recent Paris terror attacks. 
It will be equipped and trained in ways that our normal patrol officers are not,” Commissioner Bill Bratton said Thursday. 
“It will be equipped with all the extra heavy protective gear, with the long rifles and the machine guns that are unfortunately sometimes necessary in these ­instances.”
