4. Bush has destroyed the centuries-old Posse Comitatus law. We now have US military on our streets.

And they will be deployed in civilian clothing as they "conduct civil reconnaissance" in eastern North Carolina next month.


It does not bode well when we will not only NOT be able to identify them as they infiltrate our communities, but we will be uninformed as to their true mission. In the first article, the Bertie County Commissioners do not seem to have enough information to object or raise pointed questions as to the exact purpose of these troops in their counties. That is very troubling to me.


.....

Commission Chairman Norman M. Cherry Sr. asked what interested the Battalion in Bertie County.
Many of the areas we go to are coastal areas and we tried to pick geographic parallels, Capt. Adams said. We wanted an urban, semi-urban and rural area.

Cherry asked if any commissioner had an objection to the training and no commissioner voiced opposition.

It seems there is no opposition to your request, Cherry said.

Commission Vice Chairman L.C. Hoggard III asked if the group would work with local fire departments, police departments and the like and was told they would.
Commissioner J. Wallace Perry then asked if a written assessment would be provided. He was told a written assessment and debriefing would be available to the board if Bertie County was chosen for the second and third phases.

If Bertie County is chosen, we would like that, Cherry closed.





Sadly, this is not benign.


What the F has happened to our country?
