While residents of Ferguson, Missouri, wait in anticipation for a grand jury to make a decision on whether to indict law enforcement officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of Michael Brown, one can’t help but to wonder what will happen if Wilson is not charged.
Will the city descend into chaos? Will looters, carjackers and thugs go out raiding once again? Will there be unchecked violence in the streets?
No one knows what will happen. But with those very real concerns looming, the best thing one can do is be prepared for the worst case scenario. For many, that involves having the means to protect oneself, one’s family and one’s property, as the above Vice News report illustrates.
We all want a peaceful response to the grand jury’s decision. But as it’s been said, those who want peace should prepare for war.
