Hero died protecting others

His brother said : “The Army should have been brought in. The police could not control the situation. If the Army was on the streets my brothers would still be alive. The police protected the city centre, but they weren’t in the multi-cultural areas until it was too late. There was no one here protecting us. Why were the police just in the city centre when there was a chance the races were going to clash around here?"

IMO: Part of the problem is that use of the the Army by Cameron would lead to too much collateral damage if the Army followed orders and did their job. But my feeling is that the police and other extremely well paid members of the public want to gain privileges formerly given only to the upper classes and this does not make co-ordination easy.
