Mission creep to martial law

The above photo from the Kentucky Derby captures a crime being committed - a clear violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids the use of the military in law enforcement roles.

The picture (from A.P) appears on this Yahoo news page, which does not say anything about it. One commenter observes justly:

"The military has NO BUSINESS policing the citizens except during extraordinarily exceptional times of national emergency by an executive order. This is very disturbing and completely un-American. Maybe even more disturbing is that no one seems to care how quietly and easily we have accepted the burgeoning police state."

The soldiers did a good job. The question is increasingly more how the public get the policing they deserve.
