Regarding “Attack is an outrage” (Letters, Feb. 23): I believe letter writer has come up with a great plan. Let the military take over and put them (the criminals) to use. Maybe if they get tough on them they won’t want to come back. Jails are overcrowded. The same offenders are in and out. They get a slap on the hand and are turned back out on the streets with no chance at getting a job. So they steal what they can to survive. Until something comes along to change this, the cycle will remain the same. The streets in the Valley are not safe.
