FROM PEACE­FUL TO PROVO­CA­TION

American Survival Guide - - NEW PRODUCTS -

As al­ready men­tioned, protests are or­ganic events that can change dra­mat­i­cally with just a small in­ci­dent. Peo­ple who take part in a protest are there be­cause they are pas­sion­ate about the topic, so they of­ten act based on emo­tion, not ra­tio­nal thought. Mount­ing frus­tra­tion when their “op­po­nent” isn’t do­ing what they want, an un­in­ten­tional shot, a single act of van­dal­ism or po­lice use of riot-con­trol tech­niques are all things that can turn frus­tra­tion into acts of vi­o­lence, van­dal­ism and theft.

Stay­ing calm is the key to keep­ing the flame away from the fuse that feeds the pow­der keg.
