Because of the increased rioting and violence in Minneapolis, the Pentagon has ordered the US Military Police to be on high alert.
Per a Breitbart News report, “soldiers from Fort Bragg in North Carolina and Fort Drum in New York have been ordered to be ready to deploy within four hours if called…soldiers in Fort Carson, in Colorado, and Fort Riley in Kansas have been told to be ready within 24 hours.”
This is considered a “rare step” but is needed in light of the increasing tensions.
“The get-ready orders were sent verbally on Friday” said Breitbart, after “President Donald Trump asked Defense Secretary Mark Esper for military options.”
