Alright folks…..I want to know what you think.
Some type of disaster situation has occurred which has rendered the entire country without power. Trucking has shut down. Gas stations are not selling gasoline. Communication systems are extremely limited. Crime is increasing dramatically as people are running out of food and water and other common supplies. The government is trying to effect martial law.
What will our military and law enforcement people do?
Will the products of our military universities and police academies turn against and oppress the people they originally set out to protect? Will government orders meant to put a stop to the violence in our nation end up resulting in more?
Will they stand by there orders from the government and take arms against the citizens of this country? Will they abandon their post and head home to be with their families?
Obviously this is a difficult question and no detailed information is given as to the specific “disaster”. Regardless – I will give my own opinion:
I have heard from many people that the military will never take arms against US citizens. I disagree. I believe that should martial law be ordered that some portion of law enforcement as well as military will go along – at east for awhile. At the same time – a portion will not. Depending upon the locale and situation – I think a decent percentage will NOT aggressively take arms on citizens and will refuse to fire on them.
I could be wrong. What do you think? I am especially interested in hearing from those in law enforcement and military service.
