I would think retreat back into the bar... or better yet, don't go drinking during riots. Not every situation has an outcome that involves no pain and no destruction of our material goods.
If you floored it and got caught up on a guy or two... the mob may well switch gears from random chaos to ripping *you* limb from limb. Same for gunfire.
A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices. -- Wiliam James
If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom;
and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money it values more, it
will lose that, too.
-- W. Somerset Maugham
