Ferguson MO Spurs Several Localized Apocalypse Events

This post was written by a friend of our site in law enforcement who wises to remain anonymous for reasons of safety.

Please be careful as you travel through large American cities in the next few weeks. The events currently happening in Ferguson MO are not over and are likely to spread further. The recent funeral for Michael Brown and comments by Al Sharpton are calling black Americans to incite a race war in America.

Ferguson-MO-Michael Brown-riot

Talks about racial issues and problems are one thing, but the respondents to Sharpton’s comments seldom engage in dialogue. This is evidenced by the manner in which they looted their own town following the shooting.

Cities like Atlanta, Birmingham, Detroit, and Chicago are potential sites for riots and other violent actions instigated by Sharpton and others. Be careful as you go there for work or visits. Many of America’s large cities can be easily overrun by rioters and transformed into miniature apocalypse zones as they overwhelm civil authorities and ordinary citizens are unprepared or unwilling to defend themselves.

Apocalypse Training in Ferguson MO

It’s sad what’s happening in Ferguson MO, especially since the whole thing started over a hooligan stealing cigars, but the unrest presents a rare opportunity for preppers to conduct training.

You see, right now, Ferguson MO and the surrounding areas are in a mini-apocalypse of their own. Conditions there greatly resemble the time coming when civilians will flood the streets creating their own law and their own justice. Food and other items will be scarce. You’ll encounter government checkpoints on all sides and nighttime curfews. The rule of law and respect for the authority vested in law enforcement has been tabled.

Now is the time for you serious preppers to either hide in the shelter or go operational. If you’re serious about training for the coming apocalypse, you should be on your way to Missouri right now.

Here’s how to do it right-

  • Fly or drive in somewhere outside of Ferguson in the safe zone.
  • Outfit the way you plan to during the apocalypse with a backpack, a pull wagon behind you, a motorcycle with panniers, or whatever you have planned. Outfit for no more than you can carry. Any other supplies you need have to be obtained in the zone.
  • Go on into the red zone where the violence is occurring.
  • Live there for a week. No hotels either. Live like you would in the big bad. Either stay on the street or negotiate to stay with people.
  • At the end of the week, walk out through the checkpoints and find a hotel or a campsite for a few days.
  • Complete an after-action report before you head back home and let us know how you do. We need lessons learned, mistakes made, and good stories from the inside.

So many of you talk big about being prepped for a disaster but few of you have any real operational experience. Now, let’s see how many are wiling to try it. If you’re scared, just think about the reporters that do this all the time. They’re there now. Are you more afraid than they are?

Will Ebola Be the ‘American’ Apocalypse?

I keep telling everyone that a real large scale national or international apocalypse that occurs will not be a single event like the movies, but a confluence of events that occur in different times and places. A single one type, one location event can usually be contained, but multiple events of various types will quickly overwhelm resources available to stop them.

Let’s look at America for one that could be shaping up.

It would be hard to miss the current news on ebola in Africa. It started out this year as a low-key event buried in the small news articles. One village. Only a few cases. Then another village. Then another city. Then a country and another and another.

Much of the latest news deals with an American doctor that has contracted the disease. He works for a medical ministry run by Samaritan’s Purse. I’m familiar with them because my family and my church have supported them for years. Aside from his diagnosis the big news now is that he’s coming home to the US for treatment. Articles abound about him, how he’s being transported, why, and a plethora of other topics.

He’s coming to Atlanta. It makes sense because the CDC is there. Atlanta is also considered by many to be the nexus point of the world. Since 1988 it’s been the world’s busiest airport by passenger traffic and since 2005 for take-offs and landings. On average, this means over a quarter of a million passengers daily. The Atlanta metropolitan area is also the ninth largest in the country and home to over 5 million people.

If something happens and the disease gets out, this is the worst place in the world for it to happen.

Examine the potential trouble spots for something to go wrong as both he and more patients are brought to America…

  • Transport from site to airport in Africa
  • Transport by plane to Georgia with a team of medical specialists and crew on the plane
  • Transport by ground or helicopter from Dobbins Air Reserve Base to the hospital
  • Transport from there to the isolation unit
  • Time in the isolation unit as a team of medical specialists work around the clock to help
  • People including scientists, family, friends, security, and others who will be near the isolation unit or have access to biological samples
  • Eventual disposal of the remains

Can you imagine the hundreds of people involved in this and the potential for human error?

Can something go wrong and unleash a mutated ebola virus on Atlanta? Absolutely. Can it spread beyond Atlanta in a matter of hours? Absolutely.

What if something goes wrong here at the same time as another odd event in the US?

In Toledo OH there’s a problem with the drinking water. A toxin was found in the treatment plant and over half a million people are without drinking water. The OH Governor has declared a state of emergency. It’s an ordinary toxin though, the erstwhile microcystin, caused by an algae bloom in nearby Lake Erie. Here’s the kicker- residents were advised not to even boil the water.

I wonder if that if that also includes showers, washing cars, recreational swimming, watering gardens and lawns, and feeding pets.

What if 500,000 people came down with something that mutated from this little bug at the same time as an American outbreak of ebola? What if the two affected areas met in the middle and both diseases mutated even more? Are there a few large metropolitan areas between Atlanta and Toledo or nearby?

Absolutely.
