Black Lives Matter attacking British Police Officers in this way is totally unacceptable.
There's a false narrative of racism fuelling this fire, the UK has nothing to answer for! Do these people think, that the Americans would even notice, if there was a perceived injustice on British soil?
I think it's time, the Police got some back up. And that back, could come in the form of Army Reserve Units. We should model the Army Reserve on the US National Guard.
The reason I suggest forming specialised riot units out of the reserve, rather than the regular army, is because the reserves are essentially civilians and may not take the same hard hitting approach as their regular Infantry counterparts.
The Police are always outnumbered and in certain areas struggle to contain the carnage. If they had Riot Companies from the Army Reserve under their command, this would bolster their confidence and their efficiency.
