I'm just glad we have flatscreen TVs now, looting will be so much easier. Those old tube TVs look really heavy, it has to be hard to run with one...

If the grid goes down, every major city in the US will look like that. Then you had better put your trust in Sam Colt, not Uncle Sam.

I lived through this.
My advice. If you can, get out of the area.
The Koreans who bravely defended their businesses from the mob where being portrayed by the media as snipers. Shameful, but true.
Disgusting as it is, there is nothing you can do about it. The game is rigged against you.
Its been 20 years, believe it or not, but to me, it was like yesterday. Next time it happens, and I suspect it will, at least I have put thought into what
my options are and hopefully will have a workable plan to get home and provide for my family's safety.

I just got the amusing image of idiots stealing and fighting over looted TV's and computers during the riots following a massive solar flare causing comprehensive EMP.

This is actually good footage of the exact thing that will happen during a collapse.

Notice everything that was being taken. Electronics, booze, diapers, clothes. Not one of those did I see anyone steeling staples. Food, water, prep items.

This is the exact thing that will happen in the first day or two. THEN people will get hungry. If you have the sense, get out of the area in the first day. That's about all you will have. If you are caught on the street after that, you will be a target.

Did you not see the footage of the looted grocery store, it had already been emptied out by the time the electronics where being taken..

But you are right everything will be gone from the stores in the first day or two then they will come looking for what you and I have..

This is why banning together in groups is so important as prepping goes.. The lone wolf will get skinned..

I was a teenager in Long Beach when that all went down. I remember like it was yesterday, watching Reginald Denny get dragged out of his truck and beaten.... and my parents were such pacifists. I could not help but feel completely vulnerable. The DMV in my neighborhood got burned down, looting was everywhere. It was moments like this that made me promise myself that I would never allow myself or my children to ever be in such a situation. I feel like I can only prepare so much for natural disasters, but I have NO excuse to not be ready for civil disorder.

I'm in a decent size city (Louisville) but not actually in the inner city part itself, rather I am in a decent area, average joe ranch-house middle class suburb on the outskirts of the county, about 20ish mins drive on the expressway to downtown. What I'm getting at is, this situation simultaneously doesn't bother me and scares me to death.

It doesn't bother me because if something like this broke out in an area as shown in the video, I'd still be a good ways from the danger 99% of the time with at least enough time to decide what to do. But what terrifies me is that my fiancee is a nurse at the #1 hospital right in the heart of downtown Louisville - I'm absolutely terrified of something breaking out and her being trapped down there or trying to get home in the middle of it. A few months ago there were several gang related shootings in one of our cities worst areas, and said gunshot victims were taken to a hospital near my fiancees and the hospitals were put on lockdown/high alert for violence and retaliation. I was a nervous wreck about her safety in that situation, that was as controlled as it could be. I don't know what I would do if she were trapped in a riot, I guess me and Mr. Mossberg would be making a trip to retrieve her if it was necessary.
