When a crowd takes on a collective consciousness and starts wreaking havoc and destroying property, this is what we call a riot. And it seems that the bigger the mob, the lower its IQ. A crowd of people may rightly start out peacefully protesting a legitimate issue, but once its numbers swell things tend take a bad turn. Cars get flipped over, businesses get looted, and fires burn in the streets. Riots are scary events to be sure, but they are also survivable events, assuming you make the right moves. Regardless of where the riot occurs or why the people are upset, there are a few tricks you can use to get out of harm’s way and ride out this storm of civil unrest.
