Bowser asks Trump to remove military, unmarked officers from DC.

Says city won't pay their hotel bills.

'Mayor Muriel Bowser says unmarked federal riot officers are "inflaming demonstrators" and adding to their list of grievances.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser asked President Donald Trump on Thursday to remove all extraordinary federal law enforcement and military from the city, specifically highlighting the unmarked federal officers who had been present since Wednesday.

In a letter to the president, Bowser said the Districtís curfew and state of emergency related to demonstrations had expired. She noted that DC Police did not make a single protest-related arrest Wednesday night.

District residents and media began to notice unmarked federal law enforcement officers manning perimeters near the White House early Wednesday morning. These officers, who were equipped with riot control gear, but no nameplates or other identifying marks, refused to say what agency they were with.

In response to questions from WUSA9, CBS News and others, the Bureau of Prisons eventually acknowledged that these officers were BOP crisis management teams.'

2. Third amendment

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.


It would be most interesting if they reclassified hotels as houses so we can use our least used amendment.
