I'm just saying, you're probably not going to get a lot of sympathy from people who had to deal with "container truck full of dead bodies" for a summer. Makes me think of Toronto Star running an article a week ago saying Canadians have vaccine envy as though people have memories lasting 2 weeks and completely have forgotten what a shitshow 2020 was.

Maybe not, but it's how a lot of the rest of the world feels at the moment, he can vent if he wants. Having gotten this far only to see your country sliding down the slope makes people angry and frustrated.

This is what happens in Italy, there are two branches of police which coverage mundane stuff and a third one (Carabinieri) with military training that gets called for hard stuff(including overseas policing ops with the army).

Yeah thatís the model Iím thinking of, or Gendarmes in France. With it being a Title 32 force you could leave it nominally under state control outside of federal mobilizations under Title 10 for foreign service. Governors or large city mayors could have some operational control over things on a day to day basis while the military (i.e. going through NGB or whatever channels under DoD) would be responsible for training/equipping/administrative + disciplinary stuff. Regardless of Title 32/10 status, write the law so theyíre subject to UCMJ at all times.

TLDR: you build a new national police force with uniform standards/training + subject to UCMJ under the National Guard.

Also I would imagine this force being pretty small since most day to day police calls would be taken over by non-armed first responders anyway.
