· Things women should know to stay safe: Please take the time to read
these pointers. There may just be one or two you hadn't thought of.
this, forward it to someone you care about. It never hurts to be
careful in this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If
you are close enough to use it, do it!
2. If a robber asks for your handbag, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it
away from you.... he is probably more interested in your handbag than
you and he will go for the handbag. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER
3. If you are ever thrown into the boot of a car: Kick out the back tail
lights and stick your arm through the hole and start waving. The
driver won't see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,
eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their cheque book, or
making a list). DON'T DO THIS! A predator could be watching you, and
this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger
side, and attack you. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a car park:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger
side floor, and check the back seat.
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the
passenger door. Most attackers surprise 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 shop, 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.)
6. ALWAYS take the lift instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible
places to be alone (and the perfect crime spot.)
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN!
The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even
then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may
get you 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.
9. 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 & 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 babies' cries outside
their doors when they're home alone at night. Please pass this on and
DO NOT open the door for a crying baby.
I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may save a life.
A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. I was going to send this
to the ladies only, but guys, if you love your mothers, wives,
etc., you may want to pass it onto them, as well.
Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world
we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it's better safe than sorry.
The above is directed at women but remember, guys you may also be
targeted the same way or your girlfriend/wife.
