That's what the National Guard and FBI are for. FBI has plenty of scary
military-types to do exactly the same function as a military-scary-type.

Actually, it's what Air Marshalls are for. Part of the US Marshall service,
under the DOJ. And, at least as reported by DIA this morning, they will now
be on all domestic flights (they were already present on most or all non-
domestic flights of US carriers). And yes, they are trained as police, and
trained specifically in plane-bound scenarios.
