Interview with Arthur Johnson
QUESTION 15
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

And what do you say to somebody who says this was a rebellion and it shouldn't have been stopped and they shouldn't have brought law and order in, they should have let it happen?

ARTHUR JOHNSON:

Oh, I think that, ah, it's nonsense. Ah, the fact of the matter is, ah, the s- the situation that had developed--highly explosive, very dangerous, and also very damaging at that point--was one that no one could control. It was out of control. Now nobody in his, her good mind, would want to say, "Don't stop this." So, you know, that isn't, that's not a, that's not a, that's not an acceptable alternative. I mean you don't have an acceptable alternative, at some point it has to be ended.
