Federal riot control forces have been deployed to Washington and Miami. This was announced today, June 1, by Attorney General William Barr.
It is about the involvement of units for suppression of riots of the Federal Department of Prisons and the elite units of the FBI for the release of hostages.
The federal government still has military police units in reserve.
The federal center in the United States can’t use the army directly without martial law. Troops can be used only for auxiliary needs – medical care, logistics, warehouses, transfer of equipment to local law enforcement agencies.
Recall that the U.S. is covered by mass protests caused by the murder of African American George Floyd by police in Minneapolis.
