Mob Defense: 3 Mistakes Mark & Patricia McCloskey Made

You’ve probably heard by now about the wealthy couple they’re calling “Ken and Karen.”

“Ken,” whose real name is Mark McCloskey, and his wife Patricia, became famous when a protest march broke into their gated community.

Mark and Patricia grabbed an AR15 and a Walther PPK… and went outside the confront the mob.

They’re lucky they’re alive – and they may STILL face legal charges for what happened.

I know people have very strong opinions about this whole thing, which is why we need to talk about what they did RIGHT… and what they did WRONG!

3 Major SCREW-UPS This Couple Made Facing Down A MOB (And 1 Thing They Did Right)

Let me start by saying that I’m not making a political statement here.

No matter what you think about the protests that hit our nation last month, every single one of us agrees that rioting, looting, and violence is wrong.

People are scared… and that’s why Mark and Patricia say they went outside when a protest march broke down a metal barrier to their gated community.

(They also say the crowd threatened them with violence.)

But I mean, come on… there was no way these two WEREN’T going to become a meme:

With the pink polo shirt, and the triangular retro-style hand guards on Mark’s rifle that make him look straight out of an episode of Miami Vice, you just can’t look away.

And then there’s Patricia, who clearly has never aimed a gun at anybody before, doing her best “I Want To Speak To The Manager” face!

The couple says that only the fact that they were armed stopped the mob from attacking them – and they may be correct.

That’s the one thing they did RIGHT: They were armed and ready to defend their (really, really nice mansion of a) home.

But that brings us to the 3 things they screwed up – royally.

1. They Were Barefoot

The couple were relaxing at home when this whole thing went down.

They weren’t thinking a mob might come marching up on to their lawn, so when they rushed outside, neither one of them was wearing shoes.

It might seem like a small thing, but if either one of them had stepped on a nail, had their feet stepped on by a protester, or otherwise gotten injured while walking around like that…

…they’d have been at a HUGE disadvantage.

If you’re going to confront a threat to your home, maybe take the two seconds to slip on some shoes?

(If you’re really worried, keep a good pair of slip-on sneakers by the door, you know?)

2. They Went Outside

Now, I know a lot of people think that going outside with guns was the only thing that stopped the mob from burning Mark and Patricia’s home.

The thing is, arson wasn’t something that was happening.

This crowd MAY have been violent, and they certainly did make some threats – but legally, you can’t just assume that people are going to burn your house if you don’t see so much as a Bic lighter out there.

By going outside, Mark and Patricia gave up any cover their big, stone house might have offered – and they were one thrown bottle or brick away from getting knocked out and trampled.

The smart thing to do would have been to take up a defensive position inside, using a windowsill for cover and concealment, to assess the threat the mob presented.

THEN they could have acted accordingly.

3. They Pointed Guns Too Early

This is the reason the prosecutor is looking for ANY reason to charge Mark and Patricia.

It turns out there’s a local law that may protect the couple from legal liability, because their entire gated community is private property.

(The mob broke-and-entered to get in there, so that might work to the couple’s advantage.)

In almost any other situation, though, you can’t just point a loaded gun at people who aren’t YET attacking you.

Yes, the mob made verbal threats, and it makes me just as angry as it makes you to see that happen – but our legal system will always react badly to you pointing a gun you aren’t justified in firing yet.

The other thing is that this couple were facing hundreds of people, and even if they HAD started shooting, they just might have been overrun.

That’s another reason that running outside, barefoot, made them vulnerable.

So… with potentially violent mobs forming all over the country, how do you PROTECT YOUR HOME without putting yourself in danger?

No matter what, it’s very difficult to fight off an entire mob of people.

But if you have no choice, especially if the mob has come to your doorstep, there are things you can do.

To do them, you need a home invasion plan.

And to defend your home against this type of violence requires EXTREME TACTICS in response.

When violent rioters or home invaders break down your door while you’re home, you may have to know. . .

  • How to escape from being tied up or handcuffed
  • How to use other family members to deceive your attackers
  • Methods for staging weapons in “secret hiding spots” within your home
  • How to trick home invaders into letting you go
    Ways to use “improvised weapons” to your advantage
  • And a LOT MORE.

These types of scenarios are EXACTLY why we created our “Extreme Home Defense Tactics” course – because we found that other home invasion survival techniques were either outdated… or frankly just fell far short of dealing with reality.

If you’d like to see more of what’s covered in the course, you can check out some of the lessons here.

All I ask is that you keep an open mind, because a LOT of the training we’ve developed is WAAAAAY different than what you’ll find most instructors telling you to do.

But I can back up every last one of our techniques with more of these real-world home-invasion stories (some of which ended well, and others of which ended VERY badly).

I think you’ll see exactly why these tactics are superior for surviving a home invasion… or for sudden, violent riots and looting.

I look forward to hearing what you think… and I hope you and your family stay safe.

Civil Unrest: Sneakiest Escape And Evasion “Riot Defense Trick” EVER!

Riots / Civil Unrest Escape & Evasion Trick
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

I’m about to show you what could possibly be the sneakiest escape and evasion trick for riot defense you’ve ever seen.

As you’ve seen on the news time after time, whenever there’s a breakdown in rule of law, people go absolutely bat-sh*t crazy.

Looting… setting cars on fire… throwing rocks… shooting in the air… and even attacking innocent civilians.

They realize that when the police are overwhelmed and there’s no one to stop them and it’s a free-for-all “anarchy party”.

If you and your family are suddenly caught in the rampage – either because you were out and about when an instant “flash mob” riot breaks out or if roving bands of looters come to your front yard, then…

Here’s A Sneaky “Escape And Evasion” Trick To Protect Yourself In A Riot

Riots / Civil Unrest Escape & Evasion Trick
Riots / Civil Unrest Escape & Evasion Trick

Now first I have to warn you…

The “trick” I’m going to teach you is something you’d ONLY do if you were facing serious violence and being targeted by looters, gangs, or adrenaline-junkie rock-throwers during a breakdown.

You see, the thing about thugs like these is that they know that the stakes are much higher if they attack a police officer than it is to attack a regular citizen.

They know…

… cops remember what they see…

…they never stop tracking someone who’s harmed them…

…and they’re trained, ARMED and deadly!

So let’s say you’re caught up in a flash mob attack during a post-disaster crime spree and you’re cornered by a gang of scumbags as you try to escape to safety.

Now you “could” try to fight your way out of the attack… maybe even pull out a concealed pistol?

But this could make you even more of a target for an ambush later on – either for revenge or to steal your weapon (a hot post-disaster commodity)

Here’s what I would do…

Reach behind me on my belt and pull off my shiny gold “badge”… stick it out forcefully in front of me… and yell…

BACK OFF! Just go your way and I’ll go mine and neither of us need to make this an issue. Got it?”

Then you just back out to safety as you assume their agreement while they’re gathering from the shock of not knowing what to do.

Now, let me be clear…

…I’m NOT saying to impersonate an officer!

But, assuming that police aren’t the target of the attacks, having a badge that “looks” like an officer’s badge could ward off attackers who wouldn’t think twice about victimizing a defenseless citizen… but will go look for an easier mark if they think they’re facing a seasoned cop.

You can order these types of badges online and choose any version that’s NOT a real law enforcement badge, like…

  • A “concealed carry” badge
  • Private Investigator badge
  • Even a Security Guard badge

THESE are the type of “sneaky tricks” you need to know for scenarios like mob attacks… demonstrations gone wild… food-shortage overthrows… and post-disaster looting sprees.

That’s why I want you to pick up a copy of the “Social Chaos Escape & Evasion” package.

It’s like having your very own “little black book of magic tricks” to get you and your family to safety in a breakdown in civil order.

You can pick up the entire package here…

In case you haven’t seen the news lately… it’s a pretty dangerous place out there.

So NOW is the time to prepare, right?
