IT'S COME TO THIS: "Surviving Mob Attacks on Your Vehicle"

Thanks, Obama!

Some helpful tips from Greg Ellifritz at Active Response Training, excerpted here:

2) You can’t just run people over if they are in the road. The safest thing to do in a situation like this is to keep moving, bumping people out of the way with your car. Unfortunately, that isn’t legal. It’s considered vehicular assault. Even if people are illegally blocking the road, you will likely go to jail if you run them down absent a legitimate threat to your life. See why awareness is so important? Getting away from the kill zone both keeps you safe and out of jail.

3) The situation changes, however, once the rioters attack you or your vehicle. With your vehicle surrounded in a manner that you can’t escape and your attackers being trying to burn your car, flip it over, or drag you out, it is reasonable to assume that you will suffer serious injury or death. That’s when you can start striking people with your car. Don’t get out and shoot. You will quickly be overwhelmed and your gun will be taken from you. Instead, accelerate steadily and forcefully, driving away from the surrounding rioters. Steady movement is the key. Hitting folks too hard can disable your vehicle. As John suggests, use your vehicle to push people out of the way rather than striking them...

As they say on the real blogs, read the whole thing.

the expression "bring grenades" comes to mind. being attacked by a mob while in a vehicle is quite the ordeal. especially when some one in the mob hits your vehicle with what is recognized as deadly force. that causes every one in the mob to be a life threat. bring grenades indeed.
