Revealed: UK shields used in US Black Lives Matter protests

UK-made anti-riot gear has been widely used in America during clashes with Black Lives Matter protesters, despite the government’s claim there is “no evidence” British equipment was used, Sky News has found.

In a joint investigation with The Guardian, Bellingcat and Lighthouse Reports, riot shields made in England were found to have been used by at least six different US law enforcement agencies across three states.

The shields, intended to protect officers, have been used by US police in confrontations with protesters, journalists and passers-by – including a 67-year-old cancer patient who walks with a cane who had to seek medical help.

    what a ridiculous news piece, what's wrong with shields being used, what's wrong with selling arms to the US, a natural UK partner

    I think it would be a wonderful thing if the police would use water canons they are safe and fun and would be a great way to cool down the sweaty peaceful protesters who have not been able to shower since they have been very busy peacefully protesting so it would clean them and sanitize their cell phones

    This is a pretty biased report. They allowed the riots to go on for over 100 days and allowed the murder of many innocent and police. BLM is clearly a wicked and evil group and Trump only offered help. The democrat cities didnt take it and tied the hands of the police. Hence over 3 months of riots. (still ongoing right now)

    WOW! Vladimir Lenin couldn't have said it better himself! I thought SkyNews was trying to hide its communistic, pro-anarchy sympathies. Live & learn, huh?
