Protesters Blocking Traffic: What can your vehicle do as a self-defense weapon against a mob

Mobs have been moving around as protests for months now.  The violence seems more and more eminent.  The chances of you getting stuck in one of these “protests” seems more and more likely.

What can you do if you find yourself in the middle of a protest with the protesters blocking traffic and starting to turn violent toward you?

This is an impossible dilemma.  It’s like the Kobayashi Maru in Star Trek.  The situation is designed for you to have a no one option and see how you do.  This one could be the options of getting killed or spending the rest of your life in prison.  The more I look at what is going on the more I think it has been designed that way be people that are manipulating the crowds or the agitators in the crowds. 

You have to take responsibility for yourself and the only true way to win these situations is not to play.   Even if you do everything right and defend yourself you still will have law enfocement and the media to deal with for a long time.

Keep up with your avoidance and awareness and stay away from locations of protests that could turn into riots.  Don’t get into a fight is the only way to ensure you will win.
