Taylor, Ivan W.
MetadataShow full item record
Crowd confrontations are a common occurrence. In the Free World, peaceful protest is a human right. However, when a crowd becomes violent, control forces need to step in to restore order. They should do this with minimum but sufficient force. The use of Non-Lethal Weapons has been promoted to ensure a continuum of force between the simple presence of the control forces and the use of lethal weapons. However, the strategy and tactics for the employment of Non-Lethal Weapons is not well developed.
