    If you haven't noticed the military flags in all government offices,courtrooms,and other government buildings you are either blind or you've never been to any courtrooms or government buildings lately.Personally I don't think so,but our government representitives might think differently

    Just think about the consequences. the rules would be stricken, the punishment would be crueler, and so on and on .....

    the untited states is a republic of freedom, not oppression. at times it is vested to the government certain powers to exercise safeguards in defense of public and federal buildings. also included are lands belonging to and associated to the federal govt ...but never on the streets.     
    totalitarian regimes employ such measures to squash resistance and unrest that questions or undermines its grip of fear ultimately by terror.
    Caesar did that; he marched his army into Rome for the first time in its great history as a republic. call it a springboard. make the comparison. its a true and tested one. Bejing China comes to mind - Fascism, Stalin-ism, Nazi-ism- Mao-ism... a lotta "Ism's" to curtail and oppress individual-ism! these are great examples of how things go so wrong so quickly- the major players in these past 70 years alone. history ought to answer any doubt!

    When you reach that state of affairs, a country is essentially operating under martial law.  Martial law is basically an indication that the governmental infrastructure is in chaos.  Along with that state of affairs then comes other requirements such as curfews and lockdowns of areas.  Ultimately the innoccent citizens suffer more under martial law in some ways than the law-breakers or perpetrators.

    I haven't seen a need for that, has anyone else?  The military is not there to enforce the law, that's why we have cops and courts.
