    violence during economic collapse?

    What I always wondered was when the collapse starts when will people start getting violent? I thought maybe a few weeks into it and then once the winter hits it will be 100 times worse.

    When they start running out of food and water. It will all depend on how quickly the collapse happens and when panic sets in. I see economic collapse as a fluid dynamic with many facets. This in, and of itself, won't lead to WROL, but could be one of the many dominoes that will lead to WROL. I also believe it will happen. More likely sooner then later.

    Inner Cities will be the starting point as the looting games will begin!

    Inner cities will be where it begins but will spread quickly. The inner cities will be a nightmare.

    With out a doubt it will be violent. Look what happens now if you even mention taking someone's free ride. Why do you think so many of us that are prepared are well armed?

    violence will happen, better to keep you head down and stay away from it if you can.
    bugging in =stay in
    bugging out=get the heck outta there like yesterday and don't expect anything left if you come back latter.
    it's not how many guns you got or how many defensive positions you have it is how you use them is what counts.

    when people can no longer obtain the basics, it will become violent rapidly. The sharper and quicker the collapse ( it could be slow), the quicker the violence emerges. Wait until mobs or those at government house act on records or rumors of food stockpiles. Caches will be necessary.

    It will only take a couple days once the grocery stores are empty. Once it starts it will be quick and violent as people fight over the last scraps. Then turn on the known prepared neighbors. Scores will be settled and the violence will increase once people know the cops are no longer a threat. So know your enemies and neighbors, keep your mouth shut and lock and load.

    Days, not weeks, would be my guess.
