The US government spent your tax money to plan for a national police force to control you. The study was performed by the Rand Corporation’s Arroyo Center in Santa Monica, CA for the US Army’s Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute in Carlisle, Pa. We have a full copy of the report on our servers here.
The purpose of the study is stated as follows:
Does the United States Need a New Police Force for Stability Operations?
Considers the creation of a high-end police force for use in stability operations, examining its ideal size, how responsive it needs to be, where in the government it might be located, its needed capabilities, its proper staffing, and its cost.
This was not an unbiased research study — government studies never are. The answer to the question posed for the study was a foregone conclusion, “Yes.” The Rand study was just to give the government cover, and to find a way to get around the restrictions of the Posse Comitatus Act, which bans use of the military for domestic law enforcement.
The development of a national police force is the second step in the subjugation of our citizens. The first was begun back in May, when a bill was introduced in the House of Representatives to create internment camps throughout the United States at military installations. Complete coverage of that legislation can be found in our article The Specter of Internment.
Here is a brief summary of the findings of the study. You will note that the “foregone conclusion” of “yes” begins the piece:
Justification and Options for Creating U.S. Capabilities
By: Terrence K. Kelly, Seth G. Jones, James E. Barnett, Keith Crane, Robert C. Davis, Carl Jensen
The authors conclude that an SPF containing 6,000 people — created in the U.S. Marshals Service and staffed by a “hybrid option,” in which SPF members are federal police officers seconded to federal, state, and local police agencies when not deployed — would be the most effective of the options considered. The SPF would be able to deploy in 30 days. The cost for this option would be $637.3 million annually, in FY2007 dollars.
Note the clever use of the US Marchals Service to get around posse comitatus. Surprisingly, there is not much discussion of this ominous development among the bloggers. Two sites carry an article by the same author:
Alex Jones’ InfoWars — RAND Corporation Blueprint for Militarized “Stability Police Force”
Lew Rockwell.com — RAND Corporation Blueprint for Militarized “Stability Police Force”
There is also some discussion in various forums, but not enough buzz to make the general public aware. Most of the forums that are carrying this are for gun enthusiasts. If our government does try to enslave its populace, the last line of defense will likely be the citizens who remain armed under the Second Amendment. Which more or less brings us full circle to the spirit of the American Revolution!
UPDATE: Our original article was posted at Free Republic, where one commenter found this gem in the Rand report:
Our analysis clearly indicates that the United States needs an SPF or some other way to accomplish the SPF mission. Stability operations have become an inescapable reality of U.S. foreign policy. Establishing security with soldiers and police is critical because it is difficult to achieve other objectives—such as rebuilding political and economic systems—without it.
