Whether you are concerned about the seemingly unending government shutdown or the growing rift in the American population, your concerns are valid. You see, we are living through an age of radical angst. People are constantly on the lookout for something to be upset about.
This seems to manifest itself in a world of trouble for all parties involved. We have seen riots in the past and it would seem that in Portland there are regular stand offs between Antifa and others. Its only a matter of time before riots become a way of life in this nation.
Do you know how to deal with a riot? What happens if you find yourself engulfed in a hostile riot with yourself and your family?
Move with the Speed of the Riot
If you find yourself in a troublesome situation its best not to fight the tide. You can use your gray man skills and just blend in and walk with the riot as though you belong there. You are looking to integrate rather than be caught off guard.
This is only temporary to fit in and then find a way out.
Hide Anywhere you Can
If you have the opportunity to duck into a building or a store DO IT! Even an alley will make a huge difference. Get moving away from the riot and take off! A riot will likely pass on and leave you behind.
Work your Way to the Groups Edges
If you find the group swelling around you, follow the same protocol above and just naturally move with the people. Slowly work your way towards the groups edges and when the time is right you just need to step out and move in the opposite direction.
Do not rush for the edge of the mob or you will make yourself a target. The most important thing to remember is to stay calm!
