If and when domestic unrest becomes too much for local police forces to handle, the central government will need to be able to call in the military.
With the passage of the National Defense Appropriation Act (NDAA) (takes effect March 3), the military can indefinitely detain without trial any U.S. citizen deemed to be a terrorist or an accessory to terrorism. "And suspects can be shipped by the military to our offshore penal colony in Guantanamo Bay and kept there until 'the end of hostilities,'” according to former NY Times reporter Chris Hedges.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is hard at work preparing for such an eventuality, and we can be sure that Big Brother's big eye is watching us closely now.

For mass outbreaks of disobedience, DARPA has other plans and is currently developing terrestrial drones in the desert near Las Vegas.
