Is there martial law in US?

Let's clarify. Martial law exists in all countries of the world, but IS NOT the primary form of criminal justice in use in THE VAST MAJORITY of countries. In America and all of her dependencies and territories under American rule, President Obama can declare martial law at any time he sees fit. In each individual state, governors can declare martial law as they see fit. However, it is almost never instituted. Martial law is a form of criminal justice used during times of dramatic war or disaster. During martial law, all military employees and officers are called up for duty. They replace the local police force and heavily patrol all areas. They may impose curfews or rules requiring people not to travel at all. They can and will kill anyone who refuses to comply with them. Look out your window, my fellow citizen. Do you see uniformed soldiers marching throughout the streets? Nope? Congratulations, you've answered your own question with a little help: while it is possible for martial law to be instituted in the US, it currently is not.
