    For the third and final time, I'm going to answer you. If you choose to just look until you see what you're trying to prove, we'll just have to agree to disagree. The military clause is the EXCEPTION to posse comitatus, not the act itself. If you want to see what the act says, READ THE ACT instead of repeatedly quoting the exception clause to me.
    I am reading the act and quoting it...the only exception to the act is if martial law is declared...you just don't see it....

      I agree with both of you, I too looked up the actual act, online, and in text manuels at the squadron....Some people are pretty dense though.

        I think that he merely is confusing the term "Posse Comitatus" with the federal law known as the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878.

          Yeah, but it baffles me why he can't see that....or why he won't admit it...whatever the case may be...

            I agree that it is indeed baffling.

              That's exactly the problem. I really don't get it. *scratches head*

                Back to the topic of LE commandeering personal property in emergencies:
                "Lance Cpl. William Waddell, a U.S. Marine, was at work in Washington, D.C., when his wife called to say police commandeered their apartment for a stakeout." (From the Laurel officer killed in LOD story on the main page.)
                No longer ignoring anybody here, since that psycho known as "Josey Wales" finally got the boot after being outed as a LE imposter by B&G978. Nice job.

                  And you do live in this world, right??? Never say never! I assure you, someone would try it. I do not put anything past anyone now days. Not that they would not be an idiot, but it is possible for someone to try it, one day. Just to see what would or would not happen. Sorry, but not all law enforcement are intelligent, sorry peeps, it is sad, but to true.

                    I thought Posse Comitatus covers the use of the military in domestic law enforcement . . .

                      Can that be done in real life, or is it just a hollywood thing..?

                      I did it---- twice. Never while chasing a suspect though. Both cases dispatch food runs, and didn't have room for everything in the car, so I grabbed a UPS truck. That's some dangerous stuff right there.

                        Oh Jesus Crisco!! Not only do you revive a thread that's been dead a year, but you don't even read all the replies before doing it. Please, go choke yourself.

                        And here's the answer to the original question.

                            I've never seen it done and the liability against the officer would be HUGE!!!!

                              Ah, the simple joy of being a Customs Officer. There is a special statute that makes it a felony to fail to assist "an officer of the revenue" when asked. It is one of the many obscure laws we had available, but rarely used. In fact, I never heard of anyone siezing a car for a chase. It may have been used for either boats or airplanes, but usually the people cooperated. Yes, the liability was HUGE!

                              Another was the law allowing us to "pull down" any building which was built on the international border, and used for smuggling. There are some houses in Maine that straddel the border, where the kitchen is in Canada, and the rest of the house in the US.
