    So says a just released study by the RAND think tank...

    http://www.rand.org/pubs/monographs/MG819/
    Remember the 80/90s bogeymen: the MJTF police (multijurisdictional task force police ..? Rand doesn't make policy but they are often used to justify policy .BY our "representatives"..

    A Stability Police Force for the United States

    Justification and Options for Creating U.S. Capabilities

    [​IMG] By: Terrence K. Kelly, Seth G. Jones, James E. Barnett, Keith Crane, Robert C. Davis, Carl Jensen
    Establishing security is the sine qua non of stability operations, since it is a prerequisite for reconstruction and development. Security requires a mix of military and police forces to deal with a range of threats from insurgents to criminal organizations. This research examines the creation of a high-end police force, which the authors call a Stability Police Force (SPF). The study considers what size force is necessary, how responsive it needs to be, where in the government it might be located, what capabilities it should have, how it could be staffed, and its cost. This monograph also considers several options for locating this force within the U.S. government, including the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Secret Service, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) in the Department of State, and the U.S. Army's Military Police. 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.

    Crap! Bring em on! I am feeling old and sore and grouchy, and feel the need to make something bleed.
    .
    I guess that's not the best idea out there, but I am getting really tired of worrying about the future.
    .
    I guess it's time to turn off the TV, Radio, and phone.... sit on the porch, calm down, and enjoy the woods that surrounds my abode and maybe pick up the good book and read for a while. [dunno]

    Yup, gettin' grouchy myself...must be the winter (cabin fever?)
    'bout time to get them snares out, cottontails all over the place, and saw a silver fox run by the road...he's lookin' for some rabbit dinner too!
    Ahhh, time to relax, have a hot toddy and turn off the radio and tv, and get back to nature....and do some serious huntin' and a killin'!
    Yikes...!
    Maybe less caffeine in the diet!

    Ten days from now I will be in the middle of 2,000 acres, enjoying the peace and tranquility of no Internet (except iPhone ) no cable tv, and cell phone usage is intermittent. A nice warm fire, lots of whitetail, axis, and hogs, and time with family. Not a thought to work, the govt in general, nor our turban wearing Kenyan president. I wish I was at the ranch already.

    Err pardon me E.L.; whut's an"axis"??
    We seem to have a strategic "axis" shortage up here, Northern climate must freeze their balls off...

    Tango, Axis is a spotted deer that is not native to the U.S., they are considered an exotic game. They were originally imported from India (and I want to say Egypt) where they are native animals. Once they escaped from game ranches they quickly multiplied in the wild. Axis are slightly larger than southern whitetail with impressive antlers. The meat taste closer to elk than whitetail and is highly desired. If I wasn't on my iPhone I would do a search for an axis buck and post a pic. They are beautiful deer, taste very good, and due to their "exotic" status as non-native animals they can be killed year around there is no season for axis hunting.

    I neglected to state that we have an abundant herd of axis on the ranch that needs to be culled with the proceeds going into my freezer.

    Perhaps you can use a few herd "stability police" on the ranch? Might get a few volunteers off this site --
