TIPS FOR STAYING SAFE : FOR WOMEN
 
 
 
     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 a friend attended a personal safety workshop. 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 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 she 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. (And 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).

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

     (a) 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 back
on
 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.

     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,
sisters, daughters, etc., you may want to pass it on to 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....better safe than sorry.

     PLEASE BE SAFE AND NOT SORRY! JUST A WARNING TO ALWAYS BE ALERT!!!

     Pass this along to women you care about.Expands to insert a long
sentence into your document.
