Recent events prove that one of the most likely survival scenarios you may face within modern society is a riot. Do you truly know how to survive a riot? What to do and more importantly what NOT to do?

A riot is a situation in which a large group of people behave in a violent and uncontrolled way.

A riot can stem from any number civil frustrations; from racial tensions, religious fanatisim, class warfare or government control concerns. Most would agree that each of these frustrations aregrowing in intensity and heading toward a tipping point.

These frustrations are like a large pile of dry tinder waiting for a single spark to explode into a raging bonfire.

Regardless of your personal opinions, stances, and beliefs about these issues; we can all agree that the threat of civil unrest is on the rise.

Tensions are so high that the vocal masses are prepared to lash out, to shout, to destroy, defend, rape and loot the very cities they call home.

At home in the States, we have recent examples such as Ferguson and Baltimore. While abroad the deadly Ukrainian revolution. These incidents prove that no one and no place is immune to a riot given the right set of circumstances.

When you stop to this about it, riots are fascinating phenomena. While most riots stem from anger and civil tensions, occasionally they erupt from celebration.

When a popular sports team WINS, fans storm the streets to celebrate. The built up excited energy and assistance from alcoholic beverages can create a riot. Senseless? Yes but they happen.

It’s this illogical and unpredictable nature of riots that make them so hard to prepare for. They are illogical, they are often spontanious, they build momentum and take on a life of their own.
