    Ok, so if in early November severe riots occur and the police pull back as they are prone to in riots, what are our options as parents, homeowners and citizens?
    No mention of politics there. You are infering what you want to argue. Personally I'm more worried about a solar storm, or hyperinflation. The OP even edited it so people like you would not infer politics.

    Any suggestions what to do when the rioting comes to NYC?

    I'm more worried about a DPRK Nuke (EMP) attack or a major earthquake that takes the grid down for two weeks.

    I also live in a town where 95% of Police and Fire (and EMTs) live elsewhere. They are not going to be sticking around to protect us after the shift is over. They will (and I agree) need to go protect family and property where they live.

    I don't expect any rioting in NYC.

    Pythius, you've clearly got it all figured out. We don't need to worry about what may happen because you dictated that there won't be riots if Romney wins. You've told a poster he didn't need to be armed unless he had become a target of frequent crime. So I have to ask, if you know nothing is going to happen and don't feel the need to be ready for anything and you, yourself, haven't become a target of frequent crime why are you posting in this forum? Is it just to try to start trouble? At this point that's what I think.

    THe NYPD, and the NYFD were never out of comission on 9-11. WE lost some wonderfull people... but neither department went awol. All calls for assistanmce were answered, all fire's were put out, all calls for medical assistance were answered. The NYFD, and the NYPD have, and have always had disaster plans. Heck... it's even in the police radio codes.

    I have worked several major riots, and more mini riots than I can remember. I cant ever remember us ever being pulled back. For my generation of the NYPD it's nothing unusual to go hat's n bats... and form a wedge, or a line.

    My opinion of what to do if caught in a riot would be to appear to participate until you have a chance to escape the crowd, Follow every order of the police, and make it to safety as soon as possible.

    If you live in the proximity of a riot my advice would be as some have said... stay inside and make as small a target as possible. Try to become invisible.

    thanks.
    Did not know we were only talking about threats made by public officials. I was commenting on what I have heard ordinary citizens say. Listen to the radio and depending on which station you are tuned in to you will hear people calling in claiming their could be riots if their man does not win.

    well In case your not old enough to remember or be in the middle of the racial riots of many years ago, in DC and in york pa we were caught in the middle, it isn't pretty nor exciting, it's down right scary, rioters do not really care about anything but having fun and stealing anything they can, the police told us to stay inside bolt down lock and load, thank god the later was not needed, BUT WAS AVAILABLE TO SHARE, twitter and some facebook sites along with you tube, are all containing threats of riots and violence, One even threatened to pistol whip Whit__ S and they are not conspiracy websites sir, they are real life, DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT ANY PARTICULAR RACE, a rioter is a rioter, Burying you head in the sand will only get you shot in the Butt

    I don't need to prepare. I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express once, and I watch "Revolution" on Monday nights. I'm ready!

    I have seen the stories about "Twitter" comments by people who declare themselves as black and saying that they will riot....shoot Romney.....ect.ect.ect. I think it is all blow and bluster for those who are easily intimidated and frightened. Blacks are still only 12% of the total population. I don't see a large scale civil unrest with that percentage.
    I would be more concerned about civil unrest in the case of a natural disaster or even terrorist attack or sporting events.

    In any case of civil unrest....these are one of the reasons for being armed for self defense....having some stores of food...and a good bug out bag if necessary. Be Prepared is more than a Boy Scout motto.

    You, Spirit, caused me to laugh out loud at a very inappropriate time! Thank you! An Amish Drive-By!
