Why did the Army National Guard unlawfully disarm innocent civilians during Hurricane Katrina?
Also it took a Federal Court to get involved and it stated that it IS UNLAWFUL to disarm law abiding citizens and ordered the disarming of citizens to stop ASAP.
Question: 1. For military personnel, would you have carried out this unlawful order or would you have questioned it?
2. Civilians how do you feel and what would you do if you were law abiding and a Soldier came to your door to take your weapons away from you?
3. Do you think the Governor and highest ranking military officer that ordered this should be prosecuted for violating there oath to the constitution and for breaking the Marbury v. Madison decision, which is a prosecutable offense?
Lastly Martial law was not declared in Louisiana in relation to Hurricane Katrina. On August 31, 2005, the Louisiana Attorney General's office clarified "reports in some media that 'martial law' [had] been declared in parts of storm-ravaged southeast Louisiana, saying no such term exists in Louisiana law,"
And MG William Flatt is the one that wrote an article that he was disturbed that Soldiers and Officers would carry out such orders on law abiding citizens. Just read the below article, thats why I posted. Personaly I could care either way, but just wanted to see mostly Soldiers comments on if they would follow such an order. At the time I would have followed the orders, however I was in Iraq at that time. After reading this article and re-reading my oath, I realize I swear to uphold the constitution first, and moreso as an officer since I do not swear to follow orders of the president and senior officers. "Read the officer oath, its not in there unlike the enlisted oath".
