Tottenham Riots - Coming to Your Town Soon?

There's another thread running about the mob riots in Wisconsin, apparently the same stuff happened over the fourth of July, now the state fair. It's happened in Chicago, and more recently in Philadelphia, and occurs regularly in NYC, where it was first called "wilding", now "flash mobs". We've also seen it in recent memory in New Orleans (2005) and LA (1991).

These most recent riots are hate crimes and terrorism, by definition.

Unfortunately, there isn't a lot you can do about it, except stay out of their neighborhoods. If there is a disruption in the supply chain, whether it be economic instability, or fuel, or pandemic, or other natural or man made disaster, if aliens land, or the mother of all asteroids hits earth, and Jesus Christ hasn't returned first, then it will be everyone person for themselves first, then it will be neighbor helping neighbor as they are able.

Grocery stores will run out of essentials faster then Greg Fischel can forecast a light dusting of snow. Therefore, it is every person's responsibility to store several weeks, if not months worth of food, even if it's spaghetti noodles and canned spaghetti sauce.

My wife and I started "prepping" a couple of years ago, and I sleep a lot better at night knowing I can survive at least six months against a zombie invasion. But not alone. Neighbors should team up, and worst case, have a plan to get out of dodge if lawlessness becomes the order of the day. Most likely, however, martial law will be declared, and you should be ok during the day in your own neighborhood, if you have food, water, and the ability to defend yourself, even if it's a shotgun and a box of #6's. You may want to spring for a few more boxes, as you stock up on food and water, as well.

That's how you deal with riotous crowds, stay away from them, and keep them out of your neighborhood. A few Koreans with only small arms kept rioters away from there stores. It shouldn't be too difficult to keep them out of your neighborhood, even if you have to set up barricades, and stand guard. But, you don't want to be stranded with no food, water, or defensive capability, either.
