Violence During Disaster Situations

During and after a disaster situation occurs you can expect the level of violent crime to increase.  Rape, murder, kidnapping, burglary, arson, etc., will be the new societal norm for the criminal element.  You will need to be armed.  Not following this basic premise will almost guarantee that you will become a victim of a violent crime and possibly killed at some point.

Insanity will reign in the inner cities and this violence will spread to the suburbs.  Law enforcement will not be sufficiently available to contain the violence so you must have the ability to defend yourself.  For your own personal security firearms become an essential component of your overall defensive survival plan.

If you expect bad economic times, social unrest, escalation of criminal activities, etc., you should stock up on defensive firearms, plenty of quality ammunition and spare magazines as required.  Remember any type of socio-political and economic instability triggers psychological instabilities and contributes significantly to the rise in brutal crimes. 

Do not become a target for those who can do you harm; be inconspicuous in your activities and stay out of sight;  don’t attract unwanted attention; don’t become a refugee and never give up your ability or desire to resist.

    From experience through the flood of Super Storm Sandy, the problems were not from within the communities, the problem was Opportunists coming into the communities from the outside, to loot, and commit associated crimes. Be careful of Opportunists. That went on from November 2012 through February 2013. Parasitic behaviors.

      It is unfortunate that opportunists seem to come out of the woodwork whenever disaster strikes. One should never be too trusting in this day and age.

        I know, it’s a lousy thing. Until a curfew was placed and police and National Guard on the line, the looters were right out in the open and grabbing anything in a free-for-all then hitting the gas pedal. They went into people’s homes. Fast. In, out. I live in Suffolk County, NY, and the County Supervisor was wimpy saying flee your home, nothing is of value, let them take it. Next county to the west is Nassau County, NY. Ed Mangano, County Supervisor got before cameras as he said, “Stand your ground!” That was all the liberals had to hear, they went wild. People did, stand their ground with little difficulties of a rare nut waving a gun in the streets but aside from that, all became quiet. It also brought tons of police into effected areas and that helped due to police presence. One looter fired two rounds at police, and missed. They return fire, and did not miss. The looter went to the morgue.

        I still find it amazing that liberals always seem to want to run away rather than to stand your ground and protect what is rightfully yours against thugs and looters.

    Thugs and looters..are to be shot on sight….if on your property and doing the evil they do…no exceptions…self defense is a natural right and can not be taken from you by anyone or anything unless you let it …..Semper Fi

    This is honest to goodness real solid advice. Rule 1 in the infantry is not to attract attention, and I see you have incorporated this into your words. You also intimate the importance of a strong defensive point. I think I’m going to enjoy reading your works!

    • rmactsc says:

      I appreciate the kind words. I believe in being prepared if and when a disaster scenario occurs. Survival during a disaster means having sufficient food, water, shelter, clothing, first aid gear, and defensive capabilities to protect ones family from thugs and looters who tend to appear whenever disasters occur.

      • jayrsworld says:

        Thugs and looters don’t always appear during disasters. it a constant danger. I quite clearly recall the Vancouver Stanley Cup riots, the Montreal Stanley Cup riots, and the G20 protests which turned into riots. I hinted at that earlier, although perhaps I will do a piece on the madness of crowds. I do have one in embryo, but, I wasn’t happy with where it was going. Anywhere, anytime, a group of normal people can turn into a mob, and wherever you are, you must be prepared.
