While often you probably CAN avoid a riot, you could also easily be simply going about your business, turn a corner and find yourself in one and before you can reverse course your trapped.

Or perhaps you are traveling and staying at a hotel. You go to bed one night, wake up the next, and find your part of town is now in the middle of a riot.

You're driving down a road. Traffic stops. After being stuck in traffic for half an hour you suddenly see that rioters on foot moving through the area and you are engulfed.

Many many possible scenarios where you simply are in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Of course, what you do is simple. Get out of there if possible, shelter and defend yourself if not.

Riots usually ebb and flow like a tide with the time of day. Just before dawn seems to usually be an ebb, with the peak coming just after dark and lasting through midnight.

If no obvious escape route presents, hole up somewhere until dawn and try again.

If you can get internet, or if you have a VHF radio, tune into your local police despatch channel. Its a great way to follow what is happening.

And then there is always the possibility the riot is for a cause you believe in. In that case, tool up and go to town.
I think that while on foot, your chances of all of a sudden finding yourself in a riot are 0.000%. At least thats the opinon I have after over a decade of dealing with multiple riots, protests and roadblocks on daily basis. All of a sudden walking and oh! I'm in the middle of a riot. Cant see it.
Gettin stuck in that mess in a car, yes thats more likely.
The hotel example... guess it could happen. I've been in that kidn of situation many times. you just wait it out if you can or really, just walk out and just NOT engage with anyone in any way. Unless its something like race related and they are specificaly going after you, shouldnt be a problem.

How the hell do you suddenly find yourslef in the middle of a riot without realizing it? They are a loud, large gathering of people.

But lets just run with that, lets say you suddenly do wake up in the middle of a riot. What do you do? Same old same, get the hell out there.

Still waiting on the training done to prepare for riots and the mind blowing tips you have to share with us beyond "get out of there".





Dont worry about my reading comprehension, just list those tips and riot training youve been doing and I'll try super dooper hard to understand the wisdom you have to share.
This was a wasted response, you could have just said "thanks, you're right, my apologies".

Because I am. Now carry on, as it's clear we can just ignore your content from now on, as your reading comprehension lacks, as does your logic.

You don't specifically train for a riot. That wasn't what I said. I was talking about people training and preparing in general.

That's why people want to hear from people like you who have been in one. (or a bunch). If every person with experience simply says "just don't get caught in one", and leaves it at that, that's not real helpful for someone who actually does get caught in one. It's the same with any of the other scenarios that are discussed on this site. Avoidance of a bad situation is great, but it's not always possible in every case.

The thing is this, there's really not much to tell about it other than dont be there and if you are somehow there for whatever reason just get out of there.

Yes, I've read stuff written about "how to deal with a riot". The advice I came across was pretty lame in general and I would bet lots of the people writing said advice have very little experience with riots.
Stuff like wear comfortable shoes to run, no high heels, dont wear political insignias, avoid the center most crowded part of the mob, use a respirator...
Its all kind of.. ok.. sure. No high heels, dont wear your fancy KKK costume to your next BLM rally. Do people really need to be told that? I have respirators, several, but I dont have them to go to my next antifa rally, fight the police and put my NBC respirator on when they gas my SJW butt.
Whenever I saw rioting, or looting,or one of the protests or marches I'd just not get involved. If I had ot go somewhere and there was some of that happened I would just eyeball the situation and the level of violence and decide if it was worth the risk or not.

HMMM WHAT to do in a riot...?????

based on LOts of years of pOleeece work and having been a participant in several of them in my life

the answer is...
GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
anyway,
the fastest way
the safest way
you possibly can.

If you have to leave your vehicle to get away DO IT. If some butthead decides it will look good on TV burning gloriously, you will not be able to stop the bonfire without killing people.

GET OUT!
