DECIPHERING THE SIGN OF CIVIL UNREST

PREPARE YOUR PLAN LONG BEFORE THERE IS FIGHTING IN THE STREETS.

Members of the National Guard try to maintain order outside the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, as desperate refugees driven from their homes by Hurricane Katrina wait to be evacuated. Shots were fired, and a near riot erupted as thousands who had taken shelter there fought to board buses for the Astrodome in Houston, Texas. The lack of food, security and shelter can drive even the most docile people to violence and antisocial behavior.

Long gone are the days of peaceful protests via which Americans marched to exercise their civil rights and have their voices heard.

Today, in this country and elsewhere, the idea of peaceful civil discourse is becoming more and more a thing of the past. The unfortunate truth is that we live in an increasingly confrontational and violent world where physical conflict is more common in large protests and organized demonstrations.

It doesn’t really matter what side of the protest you’re on these days. Whether you are a protestor, counterprotestor, member of law enforcement, first responder or just an innocent bystander caught at the wrong place and time, you run the risk of involvement in a violent confrontation.

There are many reasons for this; but, regardless of the situation, you can bet that most public political gatherings or social protests in America today might be far from civil.
