WITH A MARKED INCREASE IN SOCIETAL UNREST, POLICE OFFICERS SHOOTING UNARMED CITIZENS, RELIGIOUS FANATIC INDUCED HATRED, AND TERRORISTS COMING INTO THE COUNTRY IN WAVES ESCORTED BY PRESIDENT ELECT OBAMA AND HIS CLOWNS, THE CHANCES OF YOU RUNNING ACROSS AN ANGRY MOB IS INCREASING. THESE ARE THE TOP 10 WAYS TO SURVIVE A RIOTING MOB.
Know the lay-of-the-land: Even the calmest crowd can be angered by the simplest words or situations. People of America are easily offended. They are brainwashed to take offense at everything. If you are attending political events or are near an area where any sort of protest is being held. You should get to know the area well, before-hand. Take or study a map before visiting the area. Know several ways ahead of time to escape the area. Stick to or near intersections and crossroads; this allows you multiple alternative directions to escape down. Carry small amounts of cash on you. Avoid large amounts as they make you a target for crime.
Remain level-headed: A calm mind, is a focused mind. You will be able to make decisions quicker if you do not lose your head. Always walk away from trouble keeping your head down. Do not make eye contact. Try not to run, because running may attract unwanted attention.
Strength in numbers: If you are alone, try to get others to join forces with you if there is no way out of trouble. If you can get away and you’re with a loved one you should lock arms and walk away from trouble. You should always pick small children up and carry them so they will not be crushed by an escaping crowd.
Avoid the masses: In the event that a large number of people are running away from something, it is best for you to go the other way, while avoiding the danger. People tend to group up, trample each other, and get bottle-necked in tight escape routes. DO not get involved with the situation. It’s called survival for a reason. See to yourself and your loved ones and get away from danger.
When in an automobile: If you are surrounded by an angry mob, roll up your windows and lock the doors. Drive in the opposite direction as the encroaching mob. If you are surrounded go in the direction of the fewest people. If they are angry and surrounding you, they will hurt you. You may have to be aggressive. Honk your horn and drive forward slowly. If they do not give way you may have to push through. If they do not move you may have to be more aggressive.
Find a hiding place: Riots are an aggressive form of protest; a situation that has lost containment. Try to get off the streets and find an unassuming indoor haven. Stay away from stores with electronics and other valued items as they may be a target for looters. Lock the windows and doors, barricade yourself in and stay out of sight. Locate at least to alternative escape routes and be prepared to use them if your position is compromised. Locate and keep a fire extinguisher handy as angry rioters may catch your hiding spot on fire.
Keep informed: Find a radio to stay informed. Use your cell phone as a last resort. Spare the battery for making emergency calls only. If you must use a television to stay apprised of the situation keep the sound low and cover it with blankets to keep the light of the screen from attracting unwanted attention.
Food and water: Keep a bag with you with some water and food. Be all rights you should have 72 hours, worth of food and water with you. High calorie protein bars and a liter of water would be a good thing to keep with you just in case you can’t get to your bug out bag.
Important documents: Keep all identification, passports and other documents with you in a sealable plastic baggie. If there are any water cannons or pepper spray the documents will be better protected.
Just say no: Avoid being anywhere where there is likely to be any trouble. That one is a no-brainer.
