Would you please correct my two sentences? I am not sure if they sound natural.
In this case, ordinary policemen are as victims just as the youth who throw stones at them. Although they stand on the opposite sides, they are both sacrificed by the government, which in its arrogance, have lost touch with reality.
I am not a teacher.
This speaker of BrE would use 'has' in that sentence. 'Have is possible, but we'd have to change 'its' to 'their'.
As long as the article before 'government is definite, I'd keep the comma before 'which', which introduces a non-defining clause. I agree with the necessity of a comma after 'which'.
If we use an indefinite article before 'government', the 'which' clause becomes defining, and there should be no comma before 'which'.
