This probably cannot go in the article, but it does rely on logic. Just in case:
'The definition is circular, in that "disturbed areas" in which the Special Powers are to be used is defined as "under Section 3", and Section 3 allows the Act to be invoked if the Governor or administrator "is of the opinion" that the territory is in "such a disturbed or dangerous condition that the use of armed forces in aid of the civil powers is necessary"'
In other words, the use of shoot-to-kill and arrest at will powers is necessary because the Governor thinks it is necessary. See the Wikisource text of the Act at s:Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act Anarchangel (talk) 10:44, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

A completely sub standard and biased article...Don't forget there are people who owe their lives to the act... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 219.64.64.250 (talk) 16:47, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
