    Massad Ayoob article on riots, mobs, and potential for violence in mass gatherings

    Great article on how best to prepare for these kinds of things. Bottom line, they're best avoiding if at all possible.

    Good article - thanks for the tip.
    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

    That was a waist of time. He is wrong on his take on things. I think he has mistaken a cesspool for an ocean.
    A bunch swimming nonsense.

    You can disagree on the colorful comparisons, but I wouldn't doubt his tactics, nor his prudence when it comes to best being elsewhere because there are a great many factors at work, and it would be oh so very easy to find oneself confused in a fog of friendlies as well as adversaries, and well over ones head in legal troubles even if they managed to escape the mob unscathed.

    The people out in the streets aren't exactly the brightest on either side, I am not a fan of people in general and stupid people even less. I avoid large groups and densely populated areas like the plague that they are, this perspective is interesting, but probably not real useful to me.

    I can legally defend myself against bad guys, but there is no legal defense against bad guys with badges.
    I do not kill animals, nor do I pay other people to kill them for me.
