Should the streets erupt in violent riots and the police fail to restore order, the Government would need to decide whether to request assistance from the army.

At that point studied neutrality would cease to be an option and the view of Army leaders whether the actions of the Government were legal or not would become very relevant.

It's an interesting situation in that regard.
