Response to Massacure (Reply #11)

12. Not all of them, for sure

I would estimate a third to a half at most have had formal riot training. It is not an often used mission. However the basic training in riot control is not complex and can be given over a day or two.

They have announced at least 2500 troops will join the 500 already on the street. I believe they could double that within 48 hours but half trouble believing they could push it to 10,000.

The non-riot trained troops can assist however in various support roles or in guarding critical locations, freeing riot trained troops and police to go to hot spots.
