Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!
|This was learned from a tour guide. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you. Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet or purse than you, and he will go for it instead of you! RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!|
|If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out a back tail light and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.|
a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making
a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in
on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR , LOCK THE DOORS
AND LEAVE. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF. Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the
engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will
get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote
A few notes about getting into your car in a
parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat.
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side... If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the
stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!
As women, we are always trying to be
sympathetic: STOP It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man,
who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help'
into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
Another Safety Point: Someone just told me
that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and
she thought it was weird.. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..' The lady then said that it
sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over.
The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.' He told her that they
think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped
off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries
outside their doors when they're home alone at night.
Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of
the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These
people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack. Stay alert, keep
safe, and look out for your neighbors!
This should be taken seriously. The 'Crying
Baby Theory' was mentioned on America's Most Wanted when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana that played a
recording of a baby crying to get women to open their doors. There have also been cases of killers turning on water
spickets full blast to get their victims to come outside. If something seems strange Do NOT open the door! We'd like you
to forward this to everyone you know. It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. This was
written for ladies. But guys, you're not invincible either. Also, since you do love your mothers, wives, sisters,
daughters, etc., you may want to pass it on to them, as well. It's better to be safe than sorry. Everyone should take 5
minutes to read this. It may save your own or a loved one's life.|
