In the wee hours of the morning, shoppers at Macon, Georgia Walmart were taking by surprise as 40 – 50 street thugs rushed into the store flashing gang sings, smashing merchandise and even dragging a disabled man down the aisle.
The degenerate thugs rushed the store at 1:50 a.m. Sunday, in a pre-planned attack. According to the local Sheriff’s office, Floors in parts of the store were “coated with broken merchandise,” and “The length of the store from front to rear was lined with items which had been shattered, destroyed, turned over and thrown about.”
Once law enforcement arrived on scene the crowd began to flee in multiple vehicles. According to a Walmart employee, one of the teens told the employee that “this was a planned event … to see how much damage they could cause.”
Why you need to take this type of Threat Seriously
I’m sometimes asked why I cover these stories, or why I devoted an entire section of my book to understanding and protecting yourself from criminal attacks; I did so because these are the threats we face, not some fairytale Bear Gryll’s wilderness survival situation that most people will never have to face or worry about.
While I’m definitely not against learning about wilderness survival — I spend a lot of my time talking about it, teaching wilderness skills, and living them the lifestyle as I venture out into the wilderness — the reality of the world is that most people are not going to face that type of threat. It’s the threats created by our sick society that pose the greatest danger to you and your family.
The reality of preparedness is you need to be ready, and know how to face these types of threats.
Over the last couple of years we have seen a huge increase in these types of mob attacks, riots, active shooter situations, and violent outbreaks throughout the country. Much of this has been egged on by morally bankrupt politicians who make excuses for this type of behavior; blaming it on some perceived social injustice that somehow excuses these thugs from their criminal behavior.
You need to be able to protect yourself and your family!
One of the things I always tell people is that you can’t count on 911 to keep you safe. You must be able, and ready to defend yourself from these types of violent criminal attacks.
Law enforcement does not have a legal obligation to protect you from these types of criminals.
In fact, back in 2005 the Supreme Court ruled that police officers do not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm. This Supreme Court opinion strengthened an earlier ruling, Warren v. District of Columbia, where the District of Columbia Appeals Court ruled that police do not have to provide services to citizens.
While I do believe a vast majority of law enforcement would like to protect the public, when seconds count, you simply can’t rely on them to be there to save you.
You are the only person who can protect what’s yours!
To truly be able to protect yourself, your family, and what’s most important to you, you must take matters into your own hands. You need to develop a self-defense mindset, and you need to start thinking about how to protect yourself from criminal attackers.
Self-Defense Tips for Protecting Yourself from Violent Mobs
- Arm yourself: In my opinion, the violence in this country is reaching epidemic proportions; you need to learn how to protect yourself and your family and part of that means learning how to safely and responsibly use a firearm.
- Study the art of Self Defense: Having a preparedness mindset means knowing the ins and outs of self defense; that means going beyond just “carrying a gun.” Any idiot can carry a gun; but knowing how to use it properly in a self-defense situation – or knowing what to do should it fail – is something that takes practice and commitment.
- Situational Awareness: Being able to protect yourself begins with having a good sense of your environment and how the people in that environment fit in to the surroundings. The ability to quickly access the situation is one of the most important skills you can take into any dangerous situation.
- Trust your Gut: If a situation seems odd, if anything about your environment seems out of place, or your gut tells you that something just isn’t right, listen to your instincts and don’t wait around to find out what happened.
