GRAFFITI…OR HANDWRITING ON THE WALL?

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Some folks seemed surprised to learn on this blog that there are rumbles of potential rioting following tomorrow’s election.  Some, of course, aren’t surprised at all.

Highly respected police trainer Greg Ellifretz is aware of it. Read his take on possible post-election rioting, and the importance of preparation.

Sowell sees it as a real possibility too.

Jeffrey Kuhner explains where some of the concern is coming from, in the Washington Times, here.

Me?  I’m hoping it’s just the Twitter equivalent of scumbags writing graffiti on the walls of society.  But we all have to realize that it may be genuine “handwriting on the wall.”

We’ve had the discussion here before about why we shouldn’t ignore blips on the radar screen.  My life, including forty years in the threat management field, has taught me that bad things are most likely to happen to those not prepared for them.

Vote wisely tomorrow.  Stay safe.  Hope along with me that rumors of post-election civil disturbance prove to be wrong…but be prepared in case they’re not.
