From Brandon Morse:
Riots are popping up in cities over the murder of George Floyd, completely overshadowing the legitimate protests containing peaceful people making a valid point. Some of these rioters, namely those belonging to the group “Antifa,” have mentioned that they’re going to leave the cities and move their destruction and violence into the suburbs.
Rioting in a city is, for all intents and purposes, safe for the rioter. Even if you do have a confrontation with police, you’re more than likely going to get a few bumps and bruises. At worst, some blood might be drawn from superficial wounds.
The rules change in the suburbs. You’re not robbing a private store and destroying public property anymore. Now you’re in home territory. The house is full of valuable possessions and luxuries, yes, but more than that, this location has family members in it.
You’re far more likely to die in the suburbs than in the city in this situation. You may think moving the riots into neighborhoods is going to play out the same way. It’s not. You’re at a massive tactical disadvantage. The residents know these streets, the layout of their homes, and the defense capabilities of their residence and themselves.
You don’t. Each home will be different, each resident will have different approaches, and each home may have more than one or two gun wielders inside. The goal isn’t non-violent control of the situation now. It’s not about tear gas and high-pressure hoses now. Now it’s deadly force. You can’t just wash a bullet wound out and keep going.
In the city, you were the pack of lions seeking whom you may devour. In the burbs, you’re the gazelle.
What these little shits don’t realize is that among the crowds of “Internet tough guys” (like me) are also some genuine tough guys — and the toughest are likely to be the quietest, the ones nobody knows about.
But hey, Pantifa/BLM: give it a go anyway. Let’s see how it works for you. And by the way: our suburban cops aren’t the pussified ones you face in the city. These are some serious rednecks who, in all likelihood, will ignore the fact that homeowners, in many cases their actual neighbors, are shooting you in the face. They may even join in the fun.
Stick to the cities, assholes.
Oh, and by the way: this shit?
Red dots show up real well on that.
