Haiti doesn't need an army but a well trained police force.

Instead of spending money on an army, the government should hire the labour force to rebuild roads and other national infrastructures and invest mainly in education because a country with 70% illiterates can't progress at all. Haïti should take Costa Rica as an example.

They got rid of their army long ago and invested in education.

That's the solution!
Besides when someone is enrolled in the army and wears a uniform, he thinks he has full power and most of them are corrupted like most of the armies in Latin Amercica.
