The Posse Comitatus Act (PCA) - the core U.S. law governing military involvement in domestic civil law enforcement - makes it a federal crime to willfully use the military to enforce the civil law. Almost every element of the PCA doctrine is riddled with uncertainty, making it difficult to determine what domestic military activities violate the PCA under what circumstances. The authors of this book set forth in detail the PCA doctrine, discuss confusion surrounding the doctrine, and present decision frameworks for assessing the permissibility of military activity under the doctrine.
