So I feel it’s time to remember Herschel’s Dictum.  It’s so important that it bears repeating.

“There aren’t too many human interaction problems that can’t be fixed with a .45 ACP 230-grain fat-boy.”

    Never drive too fast. You only need to be going 15 miles an hour to do serious damage to a crowd, while still outrunning them and it’s easier to maintain good control of the vehicle.

    The sooner BLM assholes start dropping from lead poisoning, the rioting will end.
    1st night -terminate about 20 in one night from the same location,
    2nd night- terminate 50 all in the same location.
    Every SOB rioting is a target, M/F, Red, Yellow, Black or White.
    End Of of the rioting in town #1

    Send Troops/Patriots to town #2.
    Clean two or 3 cities, Riots Over.

    Really? The guy in the Provo area of Austin had to have a pupil dialated maniac to fire multiple rounds from a shoulder fired weapon to make it a righteous kill. Even so, he spent at least a night in lock up.

    The dude in I can’t remember where defending a statue nonetheless ( why, who cares) attacked with with deadly force with a skateboard. Pulled a CCW pistol and defended himself. Was arrested and eventually cleared.

    @Captain’s 1st ROE, stay away from crowds. Sage advice. What happens when you turn a corner running errands and the mob is there in the street. 3 point turn and exfil-your 1st and best option.

    What is your 2nd and 3rd option considering the present LEO stand down or even OPFOR protectorate stance.

    You schmucks need to grok in any of these situations you are ENTIRELY ON YOUR OWN WITH ZERO LEO BACKUP AND LIKELY GONNA BE THE ONE GOING TO LOCKUP.

    So a follow up. I see all these dudes groking about street violence and I really don’t think many of them have any experience. The combat vets, you get pass because you either actually sent rounds down range in anger or were somewhere close to where that was happening. I am not talking about that now, at least not yet, the arc seems to imply that will happen soon. I am referring to street fights. You and Your mates went out for a night of drinking, carousing and testosterone raised its ugly head and there were racial or labor conflicts. I said before, where I grew up there were labor riots in the high schools. Knives, razors and clubs were a thing – in high school… Can you imagine the Karen omphaloskepsis of high screwel fist to cuffs in today’s parlance??

    I am 60 years old. I don’t wear nor will ever wear a mask, am planning on moving back to home, Tidewater VA where a leftist GOV is running rampant. Do you think with my paradigm I am going to encounter a Ken or Karen mask Nazi that will take it to the physical level. Steel your hearts bros, a fight is a comin

    I don’t think anyone knows much about another persons experiences, much less walked a mile in their shoes.

    Lived in late 80’s St. Thomas USVI for a spell, with an ethnic ratio of perhaps 15 ~ 20 to 1 and not in my favor. Met some of the finest and some of worst of humanity, my skin color mattered only to those who hated it. Got thirty stitches in my head, nearly killed me. OPSEC meant avoidance but not always possible, exits always sought first. LE was there to only to serve and protect their own interests.

    Not quite Rhodesia or South Africa but the tension and violence was palatable, a caldera of hate brewed below the island scenery. I had many encounters of which would make most people cringe, made me better and more prepared for today’s societal devolution.

    Mask Bolsheviks? Just got home from a face-cover-less run to Lowes and China Mart and didn’t encounter a one…

    Yeah, situational awareness is key, here. If your gut tells you that going down a street feels wrong, don’t do it. I lived in a neighborhood controlled by the Crips, the local PD didn’t come in after dark. Never got mugged, but I was hyper-aware, it was weird, cross a line and hearing and sight changed, got a lot better than usual. I walked home at 2 in the morning, never got messed with or even approached, one or two times, people crossed the street to avoid me. But if you see more than one person walking together, or if it feels wrong, don’t go there. Bullets going overhead sound like whip cracks, hear that, get down flat fast, watch, listen. Take your time. People see movement, so don’t move. When it feels right, move, but know where you’re moving to, make sure there’s cover.

    If you’re in a place like Portland, and these people come in your hood, you *are* the police. These groups have leaders and people directing action, and scouts. It will be pretty obvious who they are, apparently the scouts are on bikes, so if you see a person riding a bike with intent a couple of blocks ahead of a crowd, that’s probably a scout. Take them down quickly. Try to avoid shooting, do it quietly. Monofilament or thin wire stretched across a street will help. That’s your early warning, so you need to be ready to see who’s who, so you can take them down, the farther away, the better. Use cover and concealment, take your time, be deliberate, your intent is to stop the threat before it gets to you. Study your surroundings during the day, find ranges to familiar objects, look for cover/concealment places coming towards you. Figure out ways to channelize their movement, if possible. Have fall back positions set up… Put yourself in their place, figure out their options to attack where you are. Figure out possible flanking approaches. And you’d better figure out your neighbors and get as much help as you can.
