Armed Citizen Corner: What To Do What Your Car is Surrounded by Protestors



What Should You Do If Protestors Surround Your Car?

In 2014 I wrote about Violent Mob Defense Tactics.

The motivation for the article came from an incident that happened in New York in 2013 now called the Hollywood Stuntz Motorcycle Gang Assault

This is a really good incident for the Armed Citizen to study and learn from. These are the types of situations that go from 0 to 100 mph in a blink of an eye and when it is all over a man is permanently paralyzed and a family (including a then 5 year old) will forever be traumatized because a gang of bikers violently assaulted and beat-up his father in broad daylight.

Remember: A Person Chooses to be a Victim it just Does not just”Happen” to them!

Stay Alert, Stay Armed and Stay Dangerous!

    The portion below is from the original article — this link has taken you to The tactical Hermit — he provides additional insight and links.
    “Most state’s self-defense laws allow you to use reasonable force to defend yourself and your family, but you may not use deadly force unless you are facing an imminent threat of death or great bodily harm,” Young said. “Some prosecutors could see using your car to drive away from a protest as using force, even deadly force. So the first thing you must do is assess the threat level.”

    If the protestors are merely blocking your way, you may be able to use a reasonable level of force to get out of the situation, but you must remember that someone who was not at the scene will evaluate your decisions.

    In Wisconsin, the use of force is outlined in state statute 939.48, which reads:

    (1) A person is privileged to threaten or intentionally use force against another for the purpose of preventing or terminating what the person reasonably believes to be an unlawful interference with his or her person by such other person. The actor may intentionally use only such force or threat thereof as the actor reasonably believes is necessary to prevent or terminate the interference. The actor may not intentionally use force which is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm unless the actor reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself.

    Call 911

    Local law enforcement may already be aware of the protest and may even have people on the scene. If you make them aware that you are trapped in a large angry crowd, they may take action to attempt to disperse the crowd and facilitate a rescue, but don’t count on it. Officers at the scene may not be prepared for a riot situation, and it may take several minutes or more before police feel they have the resources to take on a large crowd. You could be injured or killed waiting for help.

    Capture the Images

    One of the best ways to show what you were facing and begin the basis for an effective legal defense of your actions is to record video of the incident. Most cell phones have video recorders these days. If you are with a companion, have the companion record as much of the incident as possible. Try to remain quiet while recording so as to caption the words as well as the actions of the protestors.

    Do not attempt to record video and drive if you are alone. In that case, start the recorder, capture as much of the action as you can, then leave the recorder on, put it down, and focus on your escape.
