Legally speaking President Obama can not do that with out using the war powers act to suspend Posse Commitatus. The governor of that state can however call up the national guard.

Those animals in Ferguson can do better tricks than Siegfried and Roy's tigers. While holding their hands up they can throw a rock at a policeman, sling a tire throw a window, chuck a firebomb, and walk out of a store with 2 flat-screen TV"s under their arms with hands in the air and pants on the ground. As for the Liar, he incites racial tensions just as bad as Sharpton does. Worry about the 50 who will be shot this weekend in Chicago.

Typical...look at the latest news as of this morning.....Michael Brown, who was robbing a store for cigars and the Ferguson PD brought this all on themselves...typical routine. Act up before the facts are known. Now...let's all burn & loot everything in the city & show the whole wide world just how victimized and oppressed and hugely pissed off we all are. Let's all get our simple asses right out there, right now. BOOM! Reallllllly/ Who's getting blamed while the street cameras are rolling? Who fault is the looting going to be? And...Blo-bama should shut his stupid blundering mouth right up...really...all he has ever been is a neighborhood organizer and now he's just itching to lend his lack of expertise to "solve" another ass over tea cup blow up such as a city's riot in the streets of the US. Ferguson, MO does not require any federal government intervention. Let the MO officials handle this. Jesus, Mary & Joseph, save us already.

An exception to Posse Comitatus Act, derived from the Enforcement Acts, allowed President Eisenhower to send federal troops into Little Rock, Arkansas, during the 1958 school desegregation crisis. The Enforcement Acts, among other powers, allow the President to call up military forces when state authorities are either unable or unwilling to suppress violence that is in opposition to the constitutional rights of the people.

From what I've read about the Enforcement Acts they mainly refer to civil rights issues and the state government being unable or unwilling to suppress the violence. Nothing from what ive read in the 3 Enforcement Acts could inherently qualify the situation in MO because there hasnt been any wide scale violence or ethnic intimidation with death threats against a racial minority.

The National Guard should be more than sufficient especially since 3 different autopsies show the officer did NOT shoot the suspect in the back.
