Jew Without a Gun
I am republishing my three-part series about the LA Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were trapped for several frightening hours. We were unarmed, helpless save for our wits. The police were conspicuously absent and the bad guys, frequently armed with heavy weapons, owned the streets. It was a defining moment in my life. I'm reposting this series as a cautionary tale...
Seriously intense -- and written by a professional scriptwriter. I remember watching the stories from Germany, but clearly never understood what it was like from the inside.

#1  I recall the North Hollywood shoot out. The police were seriously under-gunned. They had to obtain sufficient firepower from local gun stores to cope with a couple of bank robbers who had full auto AK-47s, body armour and armour-penetrating rounds. Police departments learned a lot of lessons after this shoot out. Same lessons applies to civilians for self-defence. You just never know when things are going to go to hell completely in a riot, a home invasion, a disaster, or a car-jacking.
