LA Police Department Conducts Joint Exercises with the Military
US v Mack clearly established that local law enforcement, given the role of the county sheriff, was not a subsidiary of the federal government, and could not be directed by law or regulation at the federal level to carry out its bidding as a subsidiary. What this stuff is attempting to do is an end-run around US v Mack by getting local law enforcement plugged into the federal security apparatus by habit.
Many, many counties in this country via the sheriff, have served notice to federal agencies forbidding them ANY law enforcement activities in their county without getting permission from the local sheriff's office first. This includes the FBI or IRS.
Well, it looks like most of them are giving that permission pretty freely.
