7 Surefire Self Defense Tips Criminals Want Women To Never Learn.-shuyue

1. Coming up to my vehicle, did I look around – aware of who is near it? Am I walking my packages in a cart or carrying them in my hand? Criminals interviewed say they want to attack the woman who is walking alone and not aware of her surroundings. Always put shopping bags in a cart. This allows you ample time to react if someone is approaching you. If youre carrying bags, this renders your hands useless to protect yourself and gives a criminal a bonus. Remember the buddy system. Late night shopping always needs to be a girls night out affair. 2. Are my keys already in my hand before leaving the store giving me self defense protection? Again, awareness plays a huge part. Also, with a key in hand, it can be a terrific weapon if youre suddenly grabbed. 3. Am I talking on the cell phone fixing my hair counting my change writing in the checkbookand not paying attention? Paying attention is the key. Take care of all that stuff in the store. NOT in the parking lot, or outside of the vehicle. 4. Is there anyone loitering around my vehicle if so are they suspicious enough to making me go back into the store? Dont think your being silly. NO SUCH THING. Especially when your safety is on the line. If youre not comfortable with walking to your car, ask security to accompany you or if there isnt security available, a store manager will do it it is their job. Thats what they are getting paid to do. 5. Is my vehicle in a well-lit area? Is it easily visible to passer-bys? If I cant see my car really well, who can? Criminals say they do not want to be noticed, recognized, or slowed down in any way. If youre not easily seen by others at a mall or store, that makes you a perfect target for a criminal. 6. If I have automatic keyless entry, did I hit the unlock button twice making it easy for someone to get into my passenger side door? Get into the habit of opening just your drivers side door. New technology is wonderful when youre with others, loading packages, during the day. But, at night when your field of vision is limited, dont take any chances. Criminals are hoping that youll make their job easier for them. 7. If I am approached by someone no matter how much help I need, its OK to turn them down. Remember, criminals will do and say anything they can to gain your trust. DONT FALL FOR IT!!! If a stranger wants to help you with your bags, tell them no, thank you. If they still insist, tell them no again. Criminal interviews revealed that they will try to play on a victim heartstrings to get access to the vehicle, a purse, or for the vehicle keys – and move-in for the attack when trust is gained and its at least expected.
