TIPS FOR STAYING SAFE : FOR WOMEN
If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back
| ||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 a friend attended a personal safety workshop. It was
| ||by an amazing man, Pat Malone, who has been a body guard for famous
| ||like Farrah Fawcett and Sylvester Stallone. He works for the FBI and|
teaches police officers and Navy SEALS hand-to-hand combat. This man
| ||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 some statistics about how much the occurrences of random
violence have escalated over the recent years, and it's terrible.
| ||like 99% of us will be exposed to, or become a victim of a violent
Here are some of the most important points that she got out of his
(1.) The three reasons women are easy targets for random acts of
(a.) Lack of Awareness You MUST know where you are & what's going
| ||around you.|
(b.) Body Language Keep your head up, swing your arms, stand
(c.) Wrong Place, Wrong Time DON'T walk alone in an alley, or

(2.) Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,
eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a
DON'T DO THIS!
The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect
| ||for him to get in the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell
| ||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
| ||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,
| ||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
(3.) ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells
| ||horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).|
(4) If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control,
(a) The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100
| ||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
| ||get you raped, or killed.|
(a.) Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good looking, well
| ||man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He
| ||with a cane, or a limp, and often asked "for help" into his vehicle or
| ||his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.|
(b.) Pat Malone told us the story of his daughter, who came out of
| ||mall and was walking to her car when she noticed 2 older ladies in
| ||her.. Then she saw a police car come towards her with cops who said
| ||She also noticed that all 8 handicap spots in the area were empty. As
| ||neared her car she saw a man a few rows over calling to her for help.
| ||wanted her to close his passenger side door. He was sitting in the back
| ||the driver's side, and said he was handicapped. He continued calling,
| ||she turned and headed back to the mall, and then he began cursing at
| ||In the meantime, she wondered why he didn't ask the 2 older ladies, or
| ||policeman for help, and why he was not parked in any of the empty
| ||spots. As she got back to the mall, two male friends of hers were
