Good Morning, I don't normally send these blanket types message but I
thought this important enough to send to the list. If it can save just one
life, it will be worth the read:
> 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
> back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like
> 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
> 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
> FBI and teaches police officers and Navy SEALS hand-to-hand combat.
> 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.
> like 99% of us will be exposed to, or become a victim of a violent
> Here are some of the most important points that I got out of his
> 1 The 3 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
> (c.) Wrong Place, Wrong Time DON'T walk alone in an alley, or drive in
> 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
> opportunity for him to get in the passenger side, put a gun to your
> 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
> garage: Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger
> 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 drivers side of your vehicle, and
> passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your
> may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman
> 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
> (a.)The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times.
> 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
> you raped, or killed.
> (a.) Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good looking, well educated
> 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
> and was walking to her car when she noticed 2 older ladies in front of
> Then she saw a police car come towards her with cops who said hello.
> also noticed that all 8 handicap spots in the area were empty. As she
> her car she saw a man a few rows over calling to her for help. He
> to close his passenger side door. He was sitting in the back on the
> side, and said he was handicapped. He continued calling, until she
> headed back to the mall, and then he began cursing at her. In the
> she wondered why he didn't ask the 2 older ladies, or the policeman for
> and why he was not parked in any of the empty handicap spots. As she
> back to the mall, two male friends of hers were exiting, and as she
> the story, and turned to point at the car, the man was getting out of
> 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
> 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,
> etc., you may want to pass it on to them, as well. Send this to any
> know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot
> in it....better safe than sorry. PLEASE BE SAFE AND NOT SORRY! JUST A
> WARNING TO ALWAYS BE ALERT AND USE YOUR HEAD!!! Pass this
> along to every woman you have access to. Never let your guard down
