Is the blurring of the line between civilian police forces and national military forces troubling?

The blurring of the line between freedom and tyranny is a concern.

For those who forget history, it has been very common to use military force against we the people. Washington himself did it in shays rebellion. Jackson, Lincoln, Ike, lbj, if you dig hard enough you will find almost every president has. Legal or not

I'm for he blood draw but that's excessive force hold down a compliant individual. I'm all for DUI and dwi being felonies and refusal to take a breathalyzer test to be permanent loss of drivers license. Americans have no personal responsibility.

You do know that the breath test is a "black box". It has been ruled in court that its operation is a trade secret. This means we the people are not allowed to know how it works or frankly if it works. Just move along citizen and don't ask questions

What's wrong then with saying I will not blow on that however I willing give my consent to a blood test. Your still not refusing a test.

Exactly. But even if you give consent for the blood draw, it requires 6 officers to strap you down and one of them to force your head down with his forearm, even if you're female.

I understand. I have posted roughly the same poll asking my followers if they felt this method unreasonable. Most still think its ok to strap down those who've already consented to the blood draw. Pathetic.

I worked in a prison not a jail and cause its state not county we had many more restrictions. The restraint chair used in jail cannot be used in prison because it is cruel.

Yes, but that was one campaign promise Obama is making good on. His civilian police force just as strong as our military is now reality. The martial law procedure over roughly 100 square miles in Massachusetts to capture one person was an outrage.

Google BEARCAT and images from the days following the Boston bomb.

Then google images from the Baghdad invasion.

It's a bypass of the third amendment.

It's very troubling, especially when you consider what happened in Boston.

Yes, the two should be very distinct and different. Both exist, ultimately, as armed checks and counterbalances against abuses of power by either.
