TIPS ON STAYING SAFE...FOR WOMEN


I learned from my children's karate classes that the elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it,  do!

If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights 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.

Last night I attended a personal safety workshop, and it jolted me.  It was given by an amazing man, Pat Malone, who has been a body guard for famous figures like Farrah Fawcett and Sylvester Stallone. He works for the FBI, and teaches police officers and Navy SEALS hand-to-hand combat.

This man has seen it all, and knows a lot.  He focused his teachings to us on HOW TO AVOID BEING THE VICTIM OF A VIOLENT CRIME. He gave us some statistics about how much the occurrences of random  violence have escalated over the recent years, and it's terrible.  Something like 99% of us will be exposed to, or become a victim of a violent crime.  Here are some of the most important points that I got out of his presentation:

(1.) The three reasons women are easy targets for random acts of violence are:

  (a.) Lack of Awareness-You
MUST know where you are & what's going on around you.

  (b.) Body Language-Keep your head up, swing your arms, stand straight up.

  (c.) Wrong Place/Wrong Time-
DON'T walk alone in an alley, or drive in a 
bad neighborhood at night.

(2.) Women have 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 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.

  (a.) A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage: 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. (Better paranoid than dead.)

(3.)
ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).

  (a.) Do not get on an elevator if there is a weirdo already on there.   (Of course bad men don't always look bad).

  (b.) Do not stand back in the corners of the elevator, be near the front, by the doors, ready to get off or on.

  (c.) If you get on the elevator on the 25th floor, and the Boogie Man gets on the 22nd, get off when he gets on.

(4) If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control,
ALWAYS RUN!


  (a.) Police make only 4 of 10 shots when they are in range of 3-9 feet.   
This is due to stress.

  (b.) 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!

(5.) As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic:
STOP IT!  It may get you raped, or killed.

  (a.) 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.

  (b.) Pat Malone told us the story of his daughter, who came out of the mall and was walking to her car when she noticed 2 older ladies in front of her.  Then she saw a police car come towards her with cops who said hello.  She also noticed that all 8 handicap spots in the area were empty. As she neared her car she saw a man a few rows over calling to her for help. He wanted her to close his passenger side door. He was sitting in the driver's side, and said he was handicapped.  He continued calling, until she turned and headed back to the mall, and then he began cursing at her. In the meantime, she wondered why he didn't ask the 2 older ladies, or the policeman for help, and why he was not parked in any of the empty handicap spots. As she got back to the mall, two male friends of hers were exiting, and as she told them the story, and turned to point at the car, the man was getting out of the back seat into the front, and the car  sped away.
DON'T GET CAUGHT IN THIS TRAP.

(6.). Tips to saving your life, if you have gotten into a violent situation:


    (a)
REACT IMMEDIATELY. If he abducts you in a parking lot, and is   
taking you to an abandoned area,
DON'T LET HIM GET YOU TO THAT AREA. If you are driving, react immediately in the situation, and crash your car while still going 5 mph. If he's driving, find the right time, and stick your fingers in his eyes. He must watch the road, so choose an unsuspecting time, and gouge him. It is your ONLY defense. While he is in shock, GET OUT. (This sounds gross, but the alternative is your fault if you do not act.)

  (b.)
RESIST!   Don't go along with him: run, if you are able:  DON'T EVER GIVE UP! You DO NOT want to get to a crime scene.

(7.) Always keep your distance when walking past strangers on the street or in dark areas.

(8.)
GET A CELL PHONE.

  (a.) There are packages for $19.95 a month that allow you to program only 911 into the dialing out program. (This is an alternative for parents who say it is too expensive for their kids to have a cell phone.)

(9.)
BREAK DOWNS: Make every effort to avoid this by ALWAYS keeping your car in good working order.

  (a.) If your car breaks down:
LOCK YOUR DOORS. You better have a cell phone to call for help.

  (b). If you don't have a cell phone: (shame on you)  keep a blanket, warm clothes, a pair of boots, and a flashlight in your car always, for emergencies.

  (c.) If it's noon on a business day, you may want to put your hazards on and walk to safety.

  (d.) If it's 2 AM, put on your warm clothes, and walk to a lighted area. You are a perfect target if you are sitting in your car when it's broken down.  Predators search the highways for easy targets like you.

  (e.) If you're on a desolate road: walk away from the car (in your warm clothes) and go to some bushes, or some area AWAY from your vehicles.  It will be cold, and uncomfortable, but you
DO NOT want to stay in your car, and there are no psycho bogeymen waiting in the bushes who knew you were going to break down there and then.

(10.) Physical defenses that we can use against the violent predator:

  (a.) The
EYES are the most vulnerable part of the body.  Poke him there HARD. It may be your, only window of opportunity.

  (b.) The neck is also a vulnerable spot, but you MUST know where to grip,
AND HAVE THE STRENGTH to cut off his breath.

  (c.) The last place is the
KNEES. Everyone's knees are very vulnerable, and a swift kick here will take anyone down.

   -- A cautionary note about these things. If you do not do these things right the first time, you are in trouble, because it will only anger the individual, and that anger will be
TAKEN OUT ON YOU. I'm not saying don't attempt them (it may be your only hope), but be forceful when you do.

(11.) If you are walking alone in the dark (which you shouldn't be) and you find him following/chasing you:

  (a.) Scream
"FIRE!", and not "help". People don't want to get involved when people yell "help", but "fire" draws attention because people are nosy.

  (b.)
RUN!

  (c.) Find an obstacle, such as a parked car, and run around it, like Ring Around the Rosie. This may sound silly, but over the years, 5 women have told Pat Malone that this
SAVED THEIR LIVES.

  (d.) Your last hope is getting under the car. Once you are under there, there are tons of things to hold on to, and he will not be able to get you out and will not come under for you (most likely).   Usually they give up by this point. The catch here is that
YOU MUST PRACTICE GETTING UNDER THE CAR.  You must have a plan (he will have one); know if you will be going on your back, front, from the side or back of the car. It must be practiced.

(12.) Never let yourself or anyone that you know be a
"CLOSER" in any type of business (bar, store, restaurant, gas station). Pat knew Danielle, who was a girl that just died from being shot point-blank by some kids while she was closing at the local gas station. He talked with her the night before she died, and asked whether it ever  scared her to close alone.   She said yes, but said,  "I'll be alright, Pat.  I'll be alright." She wasn't.

 Our world is not as safe as we pretend that it is, and living in our fantasy worlds WILL get us in trouble, sooner or later. Pat Malone said, again and again, that the women who die
EVERY MINUTE from violent crimes expected to go to bed tonight, and get up tomorrow.   No one expects it, but we must be prepared and be aware so that we HAVE A PLAN.

BE PREPARED TO ACT! AND ACT HARD! HAVE A PLAN!

 

SMELL THIS PERFUME!

I was approached yesterday afternoon around 3:30pm in a Walmart parking lot  by two males, asking what kind of perfume I was wearing.

Then they asked if I'd like to sample some fabulous scent they were willing to sell me at a very reasonable rate.  I probably would have agreed had I not received an email some weeks ago, warning of a "wanna smell this neat perfume?" scam.

The men continued to stand between parked cars, I guess to wait for someone else to hit on.  I stopped a lady going towards them, pointed at them, and told her about how I was sent an e-mail at work about someone walking up to you at the malls or in parking lots, and asking you to
SNIFF PERFUME that they are selling at a cheap price.

THIS IS NOT PERFUME - IT IS ETHER!

When you sniff it, you'll pass out. And they'll take your wallet, your valuables, and heaven knows what else. If it were not for this e-mail, I probably would have sniffed the "perfume." But thanks to the generosity of an emailing friend, I was spared whatever might have happened to me.  I wanted to do the same for you.

PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL YOUR WOMEN FRIENDS, AND PLEASE BE ALERT, AND AWARE!

 

Thought I would pass this along as it is valuable information for all of
us who sometimes travel alone and are not aware of #77 on your cell phone.  Pass along to your daughters, daughters-in-law, friends, and others.  This is an actual true story and not one of those  Internet stories that are passed on and on.  This actually happened to one of my dearest new friend's daughter.  Her daughter, Lauren, is 19 years old and a sophomore in college.  This happened to her over the Christmas/New Year's holiday break.

It was the Saturday before New Year's and it was about 1 pm in the afternoon.  Lauren was driving from here (Winchester, Va.) to visit a friend in Warrenton.  For those of you who are familiar with the area, she was taking Rt. 50 East towards Middleburg and then was going to cut over to I-66 via Rt.17.  Those of you who aren't familiar with this area, Rt. 50 East is a main road (55 mph and two lanes each side with a big median separating East/West lanes), but is somewhat secluded, known for it's big horse farms and beautiful country estates.  Lauren was actually following behind a state police car shortly after she left Winchester and was going just over 65 mph since she was following behind him. An
UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on.  My friend and her husband have  4 children (high school and college age) and have always told them never to pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather wait until they get to a gas station, etc.  So Lauren actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called #77 on her cell phone to tell the  dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there were 2 police cars, one unmarked behind her and one marked in front of her.

 The dispatcher checked to confirm that police cars where she was.  There wasn't and she was connected to the policeman in front of her.  He told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back-up already on the way.

Ten minutes later, 4 police cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her.  One policeman went to her side and the others the car behind.  They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground ... the man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other  crimes.  Thank God Lauren listened to her parents! She was shaken up, but fine.

I never knew that bit of advice, but especially for a woman alone in a car, you should
NEVER
pull over for an unmarked car in a secluded area.  In fact, even a marked car after dark should follow you to a populated
area.  Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a "safe" place. You obviously need to make some signals that you acknowledge them (i.e. put on your hazard lights) or call #77 like Lauren did.

I am so thankful that my friend was sitting at our book club meeting telling us this scary story, rather than us at her house consoling her had something tragic occurred!  Be safe and pass this on to your friends.

Awareness is everything!

SUBJECT:  JURY DUTY SCAM

This has been verified by the FBI .

Please pass this on to everyone in your email address book.  It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call.  Most of us take  those summons for jury duty seriously a new and ominous kind of fraud has surfaced.

The caller claims to be a jury coordinator.  If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo, your identity was just stolen.

The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado .  This (swindle) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into  giving information
by pretending they are with the court system.  The FBI  and the Federal Court System have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.

Snopes site: says this is real fraud.

NEW GANG INITIATION

A woman stopped at a  pay-at-the-pump gas station to get gas. Once she filled her gas tank and after  paying at the pump and starting to leave, the voice of the attendant inside  came over the speaker. He told her that something
happened with her card and  that she needed to come inside to pay. The lady was confused because the  transaction showed complete and approved. She relayed that to him and was  getting ready to leave but the attendant, once again, urged her to come in to  pay or there'd be trouble. She proceeded to go inside and started arguing with  the attendant about his threat. He told her to calm down and listen carefully:

He said that while she  was pumping gas, a guy slipped into the back seat of her car on the other side  and the attendant had already called the police.  She became frightened  and looked out in time to see her car door open and the guy slip out. The  report is that the new gang initiation thing is to bring back a woman and/or  her car.. One way they are doing this is crawling under women's cars while  they're pumping gas or at grocery stores in the
nighttime.  The other way is  slipping into unattended cars and kidnapping the women.

Please pass this on to  other women, young and old alike. Be extra careful going to and from your car  at night. If at all possible, don't go alone!

This is  real!!
The  message:
1. ALWAYS lock your  car doors, even if you're gone for just a second!
2. Check underneath  your car when approaching it for reentry, and check in the back before getting  in.
3. Always be aware of  your surroundings and of other individuals in your general vicinity,  particularly at night!

AND GUYS...YOU TELL  ANY WOMEN YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS. 

 Thanks,  Barbara Baker,  Secretary Directorate of Training U.S. Army Military Police School .


BEWARE OF PAPER ON THE BACK WINDOW OF YOUR VEHICLE - NEW WAY TO DO CAR JACKING

You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside.  You start the engine and shift into Reverse.  When you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking space, you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors, and jump out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view.  When you reach the back of your car, that is when the car jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off.   They practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.  And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car.  

So now the car jacker has your car, your home address, your money, and your keys. Your home and your whole identity are now compromised!   

If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive away.  Remove the paper later. And be thankful that you read this warning.

A purse contains all kinds of personal information and identification documents, and you certainly do
NOT want this to fall into the wrong hands.

 ATTACKERS NEW TRICK

Know what money you are carrying. You will see why as you read.  Be sure every woman is aware of this M.O. Share it with your wife and daughters.  This was the first I have heard of a scheme like this.  I wanted to pass it along. Be safe! Something very serious to pay attention to.  Criminals are coming up with craftier, less threatening methods of attack, so we have to be extra cautious. 

Read on:  I live in Alexandria, VA, but I often work in Lafayette, LA, staying with friends when I'm there.  As you know from America's Most Wanted TV program, as well as the news media, there is a serial killer in the Lafayette area. I just want to let you know about an "incident" that happened to me a few weeks ago, and could have been deadly.  At first I didn't go to the police or anyone with it because I didn't  realize how serious this encounter was. But since I work in a jail and I told a few people about it, it wasn't long before I was paraded into Internal Affairs to tell them my story.  I stopped at the Exxon station to get gas. I got $10 gas and a Diet Coke.  I took into the store two $5 bills and one $1 bill (just enough to get my stuff).

As I pulled away from the store, a man approached my truck from the back side of the store (an unlit area). He was an "approachable-looking" man (clean cut, clean shaven, dressed well, etc.).  He walked up to my window and knocked. Since I'm very paranoid and "always looking for the rapist or killer," I didn't open the window.  I just asked what he wanted. He raised a $5 bill to my window and said, "You dropped this."  Since I knew I had gone into the store with a certain amount of money,  I knew I didn't drop it.  When I told him it wasn't mine, he began hitting the window and door,  screaming at me to open my door, and insisting that I had dropped the money!  At that point, I just drove away as fast as I could.

After talking to the Internal Affairs Department and describing the man I saw, and the way he escalated from calm and polite to angry and volatile...it was determined that I could have possibly encountered the serial killer myself.  Up to this point, it had been unclear as to how he had gained access to his victims, since there has been no evidence of forced entry into victim's homes, cars, etc. And the fact that he has been attacking in the daytime, when women are less likely to have their guard up, means he is pretty BOLD.  So think about it... what gesture is nicer than returning money to someone that dropped it?????  How many times would you have opened your window (or door) to get your money and say thank you.... because if the person is kind enough to return something to you, then he can't really be a threat....can he????

 Please be cautious! This might not have been the serial killer...but anyone that gets that angry over someone not accepting money from them can't have honorable intentions. The most important thing to note is that his reaction was NOT WHAT I EXPECTED! A total surprise!  But what might have happened if I had opened my door? I shudder to think!  Forward this to everyone you know... maybe they can be as fortunate as I was!

P.S.  Ladies:  Really DO forward this to EVERYONE you know. Even if this man wasn't a serial killer, he looked nice, he seemed polite, and appeared to be doing an act of kindness. But HE WAS A VICIOUS INDIVIDUAL!!
