No, because we have the freedom to protest, unless it involves guns and extreme violence, it would be illegal for the president to deploy military troops.

The president should only be allowed to do this if the protest get out of control.

This question needs to be rewritten. The president should be able to deploy military in order to protect the wellbeing of the nation. People have a right to protest and that should not be limited unless there is violence to any part of the nation.

When a protest becomes a riot and the riot then progresses into domestic terrorism I personally think the military should have a right to step in.

@9M735ZDPeace and Freedom from New Mexico answered…2yrs

Yes but only if damage is being caused, and they shouldn't use anything that would do much harm, just so they can stop they harm being done to other people or buildings.

The president should be able to send the U.S. navy anywhere they NEED to be, if the president sends them somewhere they dont need to be then they are putting many lives in danger. So yes they should be able to send the U.S. navy anywhere but only if needed.

@9M6L96YConstitution from Kansas answered…2yrs

No, not to stop protests as long as they are peaceful. If protests become violent and law enforcement needs backup, only then should military be deployed to assist in the safety of that community.

@9M6JM3VDemocrat from Texas answered…2yrs

if the protesters become violent that it put people at risk to be injured but no if it is peaceful and is not putting any one at risk of anything even then they should not be violent with the protesters to put them at risk

Non-violent, nondestructive civil protest should be allowed; however, when looting & violence incurs then any means of control should bd enforced by the state.

If protests are peaceful no action is needed. But if they become violent riots then the local police can step in. If that gets too out of hand for the police then the military can be sent in.

A lot of what has been going on where not the types of protest the founders were alluding to. The people that are "protesting" are raiding and burning down businesses. So he should be aloud to help the people who are suffering because of the rioters.

@9M5ZYQSTranshumanist from Maryland answered…2yrs

Yes, thought only in vary dire situations, where the protests turn very violent like if there is a sizable amount of people doing terrorist like things such as shootings or explosives going off.

If the protests escalate into riots and the police and the mayor/governor loses control of the riots, then the military should step in.

Only at the discretion or asking of the mayor or state officials.

Yes, only if the protest is violent. Peaceful protest should never need military troops. Also the troops should be unable to use war-weapons such as gas tear or even guns on those protesters.
