Okay, guys, this thread's gotten a bit off topic. So ... it's either re-focus it, or close it. I think it can be refocused.
Please confine your posts to ways to plan ahead if you believe a riot is a possibility in your area.
Let's not debate anything else here. A lot of the chatter in this thread really belongs down in the Legal & Political forum, if it belongs anywhere on TFL. Since this is the Tactics forum, please confine your remarks to discussing tactics rather than politics.
