Air Force security, not Airport... i.e., the U.S. Government.

MP's don't have any authority over civilians off military property, they can hold you until the civil authority arrives, but they can not arrest you legally. Now if you are in the military or retired military, that is a different story.

Standing your ground up to a point is the way to deal with military types since their carrier depends on not doing something that shines a negative light on the base commander. That said, if they used force, I would not resist but demand to see their superior officer.

As I said on the other forum, nice shots.

A word to the wise...no matter how unpleasant they are be polite and keep your cool....Idiots and imbeciles wear uniforms too! Never know what one might do.

I've had some experiences similar to your Roger. A cool head and secure knowledge of the laws pays off...But to get irrate and throw a hissy fit with a couple of armed men is not sane!

This could be different from state to state but here in California an MP have full police power just like any other cop.

When I was in the Navy in San Diego, my room mate was a Shore Patrol officer and he did not have full police powers over anyone other than those in the military. Many time the local police would call them in and give them full power, but they had to be asked first.

The same was when I was stationed at Great Lakes in IL, they had no authority over anyone other than military personal, except on base.

Roger, I guess I agree with Roy, those are nice shots, but how about some taken with a Pentax camera instead of your Canon?
