At least one National Guard member interviewed by Jakari said governor Rick Perry gave the order to have troops assist local law enforcement during the much-hyped, first ever Formula One race event predicted to bring hordes of people into the central Texas region.
“We’re out here in support of the local civilian authorities. Any large public event like this, there’s always a public safety concern and we’re out here, much like the local law enforcement is just to make sure everybody has a good, safe time and just to help out our friends in the local civilian sector,” one troop said.
