Abstract:

This report attempts to provide a systematic analysis of some types of civil disturbances and a survey of related developmental materiel. The major limitation of the analysis is its restriction to ghetto - type riots, necessitated by limitations in time and available information. However, the materiel items described are universal in application to various forms of civil disturbances. The first part of the report analyzes such riots by identifying common characteristics of a number of disturbances which have occurred in the United States and describing the experiences of various security forces in their control. The latter part of the report serves as a catalog of materiel items, not already in the Army inventory, which may be useful in providing a more flexible response to the special requirements of riot control.
