Resolution against Blackwater on Constitutional Grounds

This was provided by Stevan Thomas,

DRAFT 2007-11-12

Resolution Restricting Corporate Charters for Private Military Contractors

Whereas, The Constitution of the State of California, under Declaration of Rights, Article 1, Section 5 reads: “The military is subordinate to civil power. A standing army may not be maintained in peacetime.”

Whereas, private military contractors (a.k.a. mercenaries or private armies) operating in California that are not under civil control or not under military chain-of-command can be looked upon as a “standing private army maintained in peacetime”;

Whereas, private military contractors using military weapons were deployed in New Orleans following hurricane Katrina to keep peace and order and were actively disarming law abiding citizens of their lawfully owned weapons, and were outside of civil control;

Be it resolved by the Democratic Party of California that we support the urgent need for legislation stating that NO Private Military Contractor, mercenary corporation acting as a paramilitary or private military entity, or any subsidiary of same, be granted a corporate charter to operate in the State of California unless fully and completely under civil control and within the civil or military chain-of-command, subject to civil control and that there be a prohibition against any and all private corporate armies being formed.

Be it further resolved that the Posse Comitatus Act be enforced within the State of California and that it be amended so that no Private Military Contractor may be employed against the civilian population in times of civil unrest.
