CA National Guard put fighter jet on alert in Mar. 2020 for 'possible domestic mission'

"... Four National Guard sources spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the matter, revealing that commanders were concerned about resistance to stay-at-home orders or chaos due to panic-buying.

 

According to the sources, an F-15C fighter was put on alert, which raised concerns among Guard members that the jet could be used to "buzz" crowds -- a tactic often used in combat zones to disperse the enemy.

 

The orders were allegedly handed down orally or through text messages rather than formally in writing, which made them highly unusual, the sources told the Times. The Guard members described such a tactic as an "inappropriate" use of military force against U.S. citizens.

 

'That’s something that would happen in the Soviet Union,' said a second of the Times’ sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared retaliation from superiors. 'Our military is used to combat foreign aggressors.'" (Extracted from the 04-24-2021 Fox Article)
