Unless there's some sort of open revolt, there isn't a need for the National Guard.
I would say that the NG would not be clearing people out of the area as in the Kent State Massacre. Their function would probably be to be present and conspicuously visible, and call in suspected crimes or suspicious behavior. I would envision something more like how they functioned in the aftermath of Katrina. Of course you are right that there's no way to predict what the genie in the bottle would look like when out of the bottle, but I do know that those members are some of the most professional people on the planet.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Here's some background of what's going on by knowing what went on and know it got handled, WITHOUT the NG
Gangland - Gangster City - YouTube
Also, as I said, this isn't a precedence you want to set. No military presence should be used for civilian domestic matters. None.
I pulled up the video, but it's late here and I'll have to watch the 45 minute piece some other time. Maybe you could share some of the big points for time's sake.

This time is like no other Chez.
I've been outfront wanting the NG to backup the City Police who would go in.
Once control is established on a block, NG takes over that block and Police move to the next.
I also support CC for the honest folks up where you live and down here. Go Bears.
Quinn may consider it.....but I doubt he wants to hand over a city to the Military. Not a smart move. Moreover if they just go by area. Say the South Side. The bangers and negative element will just move their business elsewhere.
