The events in England got me thinking....

How stable is your current AO? I'm not talking about yute to youth ratio here, but IF the poop hits the fan, how long before "flash mob riots" are the norm where you are?

I moved out to the wild west from DC twenty+ years ago, and feel I bought a few weeks/months before it all goes down the shitter.


Edit: New question: Sounds like a lot of people responding are in rural areas with folks that won't stand for this crap. So, what is the stance of your local LE? Do they feel the same way? Will they support the "good folks" if it comes down to it?

South Louisiana.

Look at the demographics and draw your own conclusions.

Knoxville, Tenn isn't too bad. It was kind of tense when the "misguided yoots" carjacked and murdered Channon Christian and Chris Newsom.
We have a few that think they are "gangsters" but they scurry back in their holes when confronted.

75% of the country (population wise) has to go to shit before it would affect me, I believe

I really doubt my area would see any real chaos. That is, not unless we get a wave of NYC folk.

In my area you're more likely to see muzzle flash than a flash mob.

Cow and chicken riots I can quell, but if the hogs riot its their ballgame because I really hate how they smell.

Fort Worth, there are guns everywhere.  I don't see the mobs having much luck in these parts.

Ami........ahhhhh "misguided young people" don't really factor into the question. Youts will be youts.  Some areas will have a more lopsided ration than other obviously.

This really isn't a "what have you done to prep" question...when it "goes down" whose gonna use the 5k of XM193 they bought back in the day...really?

What I'm getting at is: Do you feel where you live will be an instant shit hole like NOLA, or do you think that your community will pull together and do the right thing?





Is guess the yout to youth ration does apply. There is no way around it.

Dallas.

Has its shitty areas, and localized ghettos.  Not likely where I am.

Well, I'm in a blue collar area in unincorporated Jefferson County.  There are retired mil plates, boats, RVs, ATVs, motorcycles, and pickup trucks everywhere.



4th of July starts approximately on June 1 and goes until about Aug 1.

My AO lacks "community".
Unless you count senior citizen facilities.

Richmond, VA area.   Maybe riots in downtown areas, or if they use social media to head to the West End/Short Pump area (think lots of upscale malls/shopping) for some looting, but not out in the rural area where I live.

I would be fine here most likely, but I would not be crossing the bridge into Louisville for a while.

Think DC or Detroit, but with more guns.

I live south of a town that has county public housing projects and a poor town to the south of me.  

And I live 30 minutes south of Chicago, but not south enough where this stuff wouldn't affect me at some point.

What about Poly, Stop-6 and the Northside? Imagine what Oak Cliff in Dallas would be like.

I am on the northern fringe of Fort Worth and the suburbs should be safe at least long enough for us to leave.

In answer to your question...got room for one more?

Right now it's ok, but don't doubt it could go from 0-shit storm in no time.

Yep. parts of martinsburg, winchester and hagerstown are sure ghetto enough but that shit would not play well around here.

I'm working around Carrizo Springs Texas.  Right now, I'm living on location about 5 miles from El Indio, texas.  Google map that.  

I don't think I've got to worry about flash mobs and shit, but we're fighting our own little battle down here.  We've had people go missing, trucks stolen, trailers broken into, and all kinds of shit stolen.  

I've had Border Patrol on location 3 times inthe last week.  Twice becasue I called them, and once because they saw somehting from the air.

It's like the wild west out here.  This shit's getting bad, and no one is paying attention to it, except those of us who are here and have to deal with it.

Small rural Midwest town. Nearest major city (Saint Louis) is over an hours drive away. Not very volatile I'd say.

Oh and even with a population of about 8,000 there are three major firearms and ammo retailers here in town. That should give you an idea of gun ownership rates here. A London style mob would last all of 5 minutes here.

I live in the sticks so I'm not particularly concerned about the gang-bangers from Birmingham driving out my way.  

I'm more concerned about getting my parents out of harms way in the event that things go sideways in Bham.  As it stands now Jefferson County is bankrupt and we have a large population of people that refuse to work for a living.  My parents live within 2 miles of Birmingham in a nice community.
