NAACP Urges Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell to Impose Martial Law in Harrisburg!?! (Craziest Idea I've Heard in a Long Time!)

This is one of those stories where you hope it turns out to be an urban legend or just completely false, because if it is true, then it is quite scary. Martial law should not be used in the circumstances and reasons listed by Stanley Lawson, but apparently Mr. Lawson feels that local law enforcement cannot stop the shootings that have rocked Harrisburg, PA. Nevertheless, bringing in the National Guard sets a horrible precedent for future troop deployments domestically.

An NAACP official has demanded the governor of Pennsylvania call out the National Guard, suspend civil liberties and impose martial law to deal with a recent wave of shootings.

Stanley Lawson, president of the Harrisburg Chapter of the NAACP, urged Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell deploy the National Guard for at least one month and enforce a curfew after more than a dozen shootings rocked the city, according to the Patriot News.
