This is for you, and for you to share with your wife/hus­band/chil­dren/friends and ev­ery­one you know. Please share this in­for­ma­tion your friends and col­leagues. It never hurts to be care­ful in this crazy world we live in.

1. A tip from Tae Kwon Do: The el­bow is the strong­est point on your body. IF YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO USE IT, DO USE IT!

2. I learned this from a Tourist Guide. If a rob­ber asks for your wal­let and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM/HER. Toss it away from you. Chances are that he is more in­ter­ested in your wal­let and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wal­let/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DI­REC­TION!

3. 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 SOME­ONE ELSE WILL!

4. Some peo­ple tend to get into their cars af­ter shop­ping, eat­ing, work­ing, etc., and just sit there do­ing their cheque book 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 on the pas­sen­ger side, maybe put­ting a gun to your head and telling you to drive. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE!

If some­one is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, re­peat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! In­stead gun the engine and speed into any­thing, wreck­ing the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the per­son is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is bet­ter than hav­ing them find your body in a re­mote lo­ca­tion.

5. A few notes about get­ting into your car in a park­ing lot, or park­ing garage: (a) Be aware: look around you, in­ves­ti­gate 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 Shop­ping Mall, or your work, and have a Guard/ Po­lice­man/col­league to walk you out. IT IS AL­WAYS BET­TER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (It’s bet­ter to be para­noid than dead.)

6. AL­WAYS take an el­e­va­tor/lift in­stead of the stairs. Stair­wells are hor­ri­ble places to be alone and the per­fect crime spot. This is es­pe­cially TRUE at NIGHT!

7. If the preda­tor has a gun and you are not un­der his con­trol, AL­WAYS RUN! The preda­tor will only hit you (a mov­ing tar­get) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vi­tal or­gan. RUN, Prefer­ably in a ZIG-ZAG pat­tern!

8. As peo­ple, we are al­ways try­ing to be sym­pa­thetic: STOP! It may get you in­jured or killed. Ted Bundy a se­rial killer, was a good­look­ing, well-ed­u­cated man, who AL­WAYS played on the sym­pa­thies of un­sus­pect­ing peo­ple. 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.

9. An­other Safety Point: Some­one re­cently told me that a they heard a cry­ing baby on their porch at night be­fore, so they called the po­lice be­cause it was late, and they thought it was weird. The po­lice told them WHAT­EVER YOU DO, DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR! They then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a win­dow, and she was wor­ried that it would crawl to the street and Be run over. The po­lice­man said, “We al­ready have a unit on the way, what­ever you do, DO NOT open the door.” He told them that they think a se­rial killer has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it to coax peo­ple out of their homes think­ing that some­one dropped off a baby. He said they have not ver­i­fied it but have had sev­eral calls by peo­ple say­ing that they some­times hear cries out­side their doors when they’re home alone at night.

10. Water scam! If you wake up in the mid­dle of the night to hear all your taps out­side run­ning or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO IN­VES­TI­GATE! Th­ese peo­ple turn on all your out­side taps full blast so that you will go out to in­ves­ti­gate and then they at­tack.

STAY ALERT, KEEP SAFE, WHILE ALSO LOOK­ING OUT FOR YOUR NEIGH­BOURS!
