Martial Law in America coming in October

Beginning in October, the Army plans to station an active unit inside 
the United States for the first time to serve as an on-call federal 
response in times of emergency. The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st 
Brigade Combat Team has spent thirty-five of the last sixty months in 
Iraq, but now the unit is training for domestic operations. The unit 
will soon be under the day-to-day control of US Army North, the Army 
service component of Northern Command. The Army Times reports this new 
mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated 
assignment to Northern Command. The paper says the Army unit may be 
called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control. The soldiers 
are learning to use so-called nonlethal weapons designed to subdue 
unruly or dangerous individuals and crowds.
