Sybert's Plan to Fight Crime Is Outlandish

November 06, 1994

Rich Sybert, Republican candidate for Congress, would use the U. S. Army to fight crime (Valley Commentary, Oct. 9). What next? Should we arm politically reliable civilians to assist the Army? We could call them attaches.

No one has used Army troops for permanent general police duties in America since George III. Most true conservatives, myself included, are very distrustful of anyone who would expand federal power, especially federal police power.
