Following the transmission interruption that seemed to be a signal to the beginning of city-wide riots across New York and the decay of local and federal law enforcement to restore order, Governor Robert Malden has agreed to an order of Congress that has suspended the privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus and the Posse Comitatus act, instituting a state of Martial Law, effective immediately, within the sovereign state of New York.

In accordance with President Petrelli's stipulations, the United States Army and National Guard now supplement local and federal law enforcement. In an instance where local law enforcement is not present, any military personnel now has the authority to supersede acts of police or judicial branches of government.

Military personnel have full authority to apply lethal force when necessary, and citizens are advised to stay in their homes and off of the street. Violators of the curfew will be subject to the full punishment of the law as seen fit by the arresting party at the time of apprehension.

According to Governor Malden, this state of Martial Law will remain in effect until March 2011 or until it is otherwise dissolved, whichever comes first.
