There is no such thing. It's Martial Law. Meaning that the military is now in control of the population and Habeas Corpus is usually suspended. Curfews, military tribunals, crackdowns...that sort of thing.

Whenever I see the term Marshall Law, I can't help but wonder if the poster has the foggiest idea of what they're talking about.

A small point I'm sure but one that gets repeated over and over again. OK, mini rant over.

Wasn't Marshall Law a friend of Wyatt Earp? : )

Seriously, I agree with you, reading what you write makes it easier on your audience to get your point [or even want to read what you write to the end sometimes]. Phonetic ['bad'] spelling be damned; English takes enough of a beating as it is.

Oh I don't know... .on the the show Gun Smoke it was Marshall law... the one that's cute is to see a couple are having martial problems....instead of marital.... the abuse of words that tick me off are:

Sustained... as in "the boy sustained injuries." Oh? Did he pick at them? The right word is "received."

Careened.... as in "the plane careened off the run way." Doubtful. Careen means to rock from side to side like a boat in water. The right word is "careered" which is to go in a straight line. "The plane careered off the run way." That is also why following one profession is called a "career."

The most empty phrase journalists used -- and which would get one fired in the old days when men ran the profession -- is "the victim is in stable condition." There is no such condition as stable. There is critical, serious, fair, good. Vital signs (heart rate and blood pressure) can be stable but there is no "stable condition." When you hear a journalist say that you know they did not do their job.

habeaus corpus got thrown out the window when the u.s. government established military tribunals for determining an enemy combatant. now granted they did this to be able to go after suspected terrorist but whos to say that they use their power against political dissenters, or protesters ect. i think when most people refer to marshal law they really mean what has happened in areas like new orleans and texas after storms with curfews and such.

I clicked on your post to freak out on you. I was going to throw my arms in the air and foam at the mouth. My exact words were going to be :" It's Martial not Marshall, dumb ass!"

I guess the fact that the title of your post is what finally broke me down, is incredibly ironic.:D:

Here's one I've always found annoying as hell. "A number"........ as in "There were a number of victims in this shootout." Or "The victims of the shootout were numerous." Well that just really pins it down there, doesn't it Sherlock?! One is a number. Forty-million is a number! What's the fu**ing point! RRRRRGGGHHH!!!

going back to the topic for a fleeting moment, :D: I just came back from work for a quick 'lunch' and saw many things here since I'm still on anti looting detail. Basically, the last 30 minutes before curfew- PD cars will go up and down the roads announcing that fact over the loudspeaker. It's eerie since I live in an area where almost all the power has been restored. Makes me want to reach for the tin foil- whether I'm in good with Johnny Law or not.

Do you know what I find to be hilarious? When people who can't spell effuse,

MARITAL law.

Does the imposition of marital law imply that copulation is being decreed - ?

:D:

from the wikipedia:

Martial law is the system of rules that takes effect when the military takes control of the normal administration of justice.

A Curfew can be one of the following:

An order by a government for certain persons to return home daily before a certain time. It can be imposed to maintain public order (such as those after the 2003 North America blackout and 2005 civil unrest in France), or suppress targeted groups (such as was enacted on Jewish people during the regime of Nazi Germany). Curfews have long been directed at certain groups in many cities or states, such as Japanese-American university students on the West Coast of the United States during World War II, African-Americans in many towns during the time of Jim Crow laws, or people younger than a certain age (usually within a few years either side of 18) in many towns of the United States since the 1980s; see below. Some jurisdictions have also introduced "daytime curfews" that would prevent high school-age youth from visiting public places during school hours or even during immediate after-school hours.

An order by the legal guardians of a teenager to return home by a specific time, usually in the evening or night. This may apply daily, or is separate per occasion (especially concerning dating), or varies with the day of the week (earlier on a so-called school night, i.e., if the minor has to go to school the next day).

A daily requirement for guests to return to their hostel before a specified time, usually in the evening or night. Arriving later has the consequence of being locked out until the morning. It allows the hostel to dispense with a doorman during the night, and improves quietness at night.

In baseball, a time after which a game must end, or play be suspended. For example, in the American League the curfew rule for many years decreed that no inning could begin after 1 A.M. local time.

Many airports operate with rules that during certain times, the airport will be effectively closed, to facilitate noise restrictions in areas under the airports flight paths. Examples include LaGuardia Airport in New York City, and Sydney Airport in Sydney, Australia. The practice is commonly known as an Operating Curfew, or Movement Restriction.
