{November 24, 2014}   The Friendly Predator

A young woman was staying with her family at a motel when she met a nice young man hobbling down the hall on crutches who asked her for help getting into his room. It was mid-day, he was well spoken and groomed, barely able to stand up, and her family was close by. Once again serial killer Ted Bundy snared a helpful victim. http://www.crime-safety-security.com/outdoor-safety-friendly-predators.html

WARNING: Stay away from anyone with sad stories, asking for directions or for the time, etc. A predator’s “conversation” is a form of testing. Tough targets tend not to be selected. Refuse all requests. You’re not obligated to chitchat. For outdoor safety, it’s far better to overreact and be rude than to end up a victim. http://www.crime-safety-security.com/outdoor-safety-friendly-predators.html

ADVICE: …ten things that every woman should know about personal safety, and are covered in the Laurs’ newly published book, Total Awareness: A Woman’s Safety Book:

1. Awareness: Your first line of defence.awareness of yourself, your surroundings, and your potential attacker’s likely strategies.
2. Use your sixth sense. “Sixth sense.” “Gut instinct.” Avoid a person or a situation which does not “feel” safe–you’re probably right.
3. Self-defense training.
4. Escape: Always your best option. You are far more likely to be killed or seriously injured if you go with the predator than if you run away…
5. Your right to fight…statistics clearly show that your odds of survival are far greater if you do fight back. Aim for the eyes first and the groin second.
6. Pepper spray: Never depend on any self-defence tool or weapon to stop an attacker. Trust your body and your wits…
7. Home invasions: never, ever open your door unless you either are certain you know who’s on the other side…for more tips see http://powertochange.com/life/personalsafetytips/
