To me, it seems unreasonable to ask a soldier to patrol theft-prone areas when they can't arrest people and they sure have no business shooting bullets at thieves.
It is possible that a thief may have a gun, and it would not be fair to a soldier to send him out with instructions to be a prop with an assault rifle that he can not use, especially when their training is based on combat rules of engagement and not police arrest and police use of force policies.
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
