Anger at Italian 'army police' plan


gnn.tv

A plan to put 2,500 soldiers on the streets of Italy to fight crime has come under fire from opposition politicians, police unions and a former top military commander.

"It does not give a good impression to see soldiers doing in our cities what they've done in Kosovo and Albania," said former military chief of staff General Mario Arpino. Opposition MP, Antonio di Pietro, said "only Colombia" used troops to patrol its streets, while a police union spokesman called it "a publicity stunt".

Why????
Standing armies in the streets? Notice the part where they can "stop and search" citizens??

All in all this sounds like a terrible idea. I'm pretty sure around here we call that kind of thing Martial Law.

I would especially like to hear from an Italian perspective. Anyone local?
