They impose their own brand of discipline to control the situation.
A2 Liberty and discipline exist together. Some people think that discipline is a restraint(control) on liberty. It trains people to obey rules and orders. Liberty is the birthright of each and every person .But even then, it is not a personal affair. It is a compromise.

We can have discipline without liberty, but we cannot have liberty without discipline.

One morning, long ago, as a brand new second-lieutenant, I was walking on to a parade. A private soldier passed me and saluted. I acknowledged his salute with an airy wave of the hand. Suddenly behind me, a voice rasped out my name. I spun around and there was my Colonel, for whom I had a most wholesome respect, and with him Regimental Sergeant Major, of whom also I stood in the same awe. “I see”, said the Colonel, “you don’t know how to return a salute. Sergeant Major, plant your staff in the ground and let Mr. Slim practise saluting it until he does know how to return a salute!” So to and fro I marched in sight of the whole battalion, saluting the Sergeant Major’s cane (I could cheerfully have murdered the Colonel, the Sergeant Major and my grinning fellows–subalterns). At the end of ten minutes, the Colonel called me up to him. All he said was: “Now remember, discipline begins with the officers!”
