SAMSON, Ala. (AP) - An Army investigation has found that the use of armed military policemen from Fort Rucker in response to mass murders in Samson violated federal law.
Records on the matter were released to the Dothan Eagle on Monday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
The Department of Army Inspector General found a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, which restrains the use of the military for civilian law enforcement purposes.
The Aug. 10 report says it does not appear the historic tradition of limiting direct military involvement in civilian law enforcement activities was analyzed or considered.
It says the intent was to be a good Army neighbor.
The Army earlier confirmed that 22 military police and an officer were sent to Samson after the mass slaying of 10 people on March 10.
