Rep. Stewart seeking to demilitarize federal regulatory agencies

Cops no different than an invading army

by Lisa Riley Roche | Deseret News | August 26, 2014

Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, said a police show of force against protests in Ferguson, Missouri, that have been compared to an invading army is boosting interest in his effort to demilitarize federal regulatory agencies.

But Stewart told the Deseret News and KSL editorial board Monday that he isn’t trying to take advantage of the concerns raised by the local police reaction to demonstrations against the police shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old.

“I don’t feel comfortable taking advantage of that and trying to sell it by saying,‘Well, look what’s happening out in Ferguson, therefore, come support my bill.’ I think those situations are different enough,” he said.
