    Please keep this thread non-political. The issue here is potential violence and what people can do to protect themselves.

      Right-Wing Extremists: A Looming Threat to the U.S. Election

      By Bruce Hoffman, CFR Expert
      October 9, 2020
      • How real is the threat of extremist forces disrupting the U.S. election and stirring unrest in the aftermath?
      • Which groups pose the most significant threats?
      • Is the threat more serious now than it was months ago?
      • How concerned are you about these groups’ activities online and offline—in the streets?
      • How protected will polling places be? What type of official security presence is required or expected to ensure a free and fair vote?

        To balance this out - there is also much speculation that left wing extremists may also be a threat. There are many links. Please google this issue.

        The bottom line is that we all need to think about what if our city erupts into random violence, looting, etc. like we saw in the summer. Apparently many have left Manhattan, partly due to the fear of repeat violence. There are many videos online showing boarded up stores, deserted streets, etc. Also please google these.
        "In the month of March alone, there was a 256% increase in people moving out of the city compared to the same month last year.

        Overall since March, more than 246,000 people have filed a change of address request. That's an almost 100% increase compared to the same time period in 2019.

        'Back then, it was really scary and I just couldn't be there,' Ernakovich said." link




        My concern here is that everyone should prepare a little bit to be able - again - to chose when to go out. For instance, Walmart can be problematic on a regular day:




        I think the answer is to basically "prep" in advance so that you do not have to run out for milk, diapers, dog food, etc. Get things you will use anyway. Just so you have some control.

          We shop at Walmart frequently and never see the kind of trouble depicted in that video. I think when you have never-ending crime in a jurisdiction, you have an ineffective justice system.

          I agree leftist violence exits, too.

            National Nuclear Security Administration

            OCTOBER 19, 2020

            WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) will conduct low-altitude helicopter flights over downtown Washington, D.C. and areas in and around the Nation’s capital beginning on October 19 in preparation for the Presidential Inauguration. The inauguration is scheduled to take place on January 20, 2021.

            NNSA’s Nuclear Emergency Support Team (NEST) aircraft will measure naturally occurring background radiation as part of standard preparations to protect public health and safety on the day of the event.

              I am surprised that they are starting on October 19. Seems early.

            The Conservative Trans Woman Who Went Undercover With Antifa in Portland
            Confessions of a black bloc mole
            Nancy Rommelmann | 10.2.2020 2:20 PM
            ...
            It takes a special moral blindness to see setting fires, breaking windows, and threatening journalists as the road to justice. I've seen this moral blindness rise along with the violence in Portland. Young activists have told me frankly that they don't give a **** if someone working in the basement of the police station burns to death because, hey, she chose to work there. I've seen activists cheer the murder of a member of the conservative group Patriot Prayer. You cannot employ the violence of your perceived enemies and expect your revolution to end in peace.

            What Smith has experienced has not been peaceful. She's had friends beaten up by antifa. She's been threatened herself. It made her curious. This summer, she decided to find out more by going undercover with the black bloc anarchists in Portland...

                Facebook Prepares Measures for Possible Election Unrest

                Tools include slowing the spread of certain posts and tweaking users’ news feeds


                Oct. 25, 2020 2:47 pm ET


                Facebook Inc. teams have planned for the possibility of trying to calm election-related conflict in the U.S. by deploying internal tools designed for what it calls “at-risk” countries, according to people familiar with the matter.

                The emergency measures include slowing the spread of viral content and lowering the bar for suppressing potentially inflammatory posts, the people said. Previously used in countries including Sri Lanka and Myanmar, they are part of a larger tool kit developed by Facebook to prepare for the U.S. election.
