Exclamation Safety Steps......

Reportedly written by a retired 30YR-plus law enforcement officer, first printed on Huffington Post.

Some may think it's tacky and/or cheesy, but if it saves just one life and sends that life home to their families, then it's damn worth it!

Copied/pasted for the Z

Grub looking out.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Refresh yourself of these 10 things to do in an emergency situation......

This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, & everyone you know. Everyone you care about. After reading these CRUCIAL tips, forward them.

It never hurts to be cautious & careful in this crazy world we live in.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is, by far, the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do so!

2. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you... Chances are GOOD 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 OPPOSITE 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 everybody else will.

This HAS saved lives!

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars directly after shopping, eating, working, etc. and just sit there doing their checkbook, or making a list, or on their phone, or whatever....

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, 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! If someone is in the car with a gun to your head, DO NOT DRIVE OFF.

Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF!

Instead, floor the accelerator and speed into anything, wrecking the car in the process. 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 FAR 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 of your immediate surrounds: 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 security guard/policeman to walk you back out.

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator 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 running target) 4 out of 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.

RUN! Preferably in a zig-zag pattern to throw off his aim!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: For the love of God, STOP IT!!! It may get you raped, hurt or killed.

Ted Bundy - the serial killer - was a good-looking, charismatic, 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.

9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.. The lady 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 get run over.

The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.'

He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded, and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's 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 water faucets full blast, so as that you will go out to investigate. Bait! Then they attack you.

Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors! Please pass this on This e-mail should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby Theory was mentioned on America 's Most Wanted when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may save a life.

A candle is NEVER dimmed by lighting another candle.

Pass this onto any woman you know. Email it, post it on forums and social media sites, print it out and stick it onto the fridge; it's FAR better to be safe than sorry.

It just may save your life or, just as importantly, a loved one's life.

Be alert and you will be safe!

That was a long read...but worth it. It's nice to read things like that occasionally IMO so that there is a refresher somewhere in the front of the filing cabinet that lights a bulb if needed.

Thanks Grub.

Well said and I agree 100%, keeping tips like these in the front of your mind rather than on the back burner may end up making a heck of a difference in a bad situation! EXCELLENT post Grub, I know I will be sharing this and forwarding it on!

Some of the right ideas .. I'll add my 2 cents

This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, & everyone you know. Everyone you care about. After reading these CRUCIAL tips, forward them.

It never hurts to be cautious & careful in this crazy world we live in.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is, by far, the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do so!

Always go with blunt force. In the midst of an adrenaline dump all fine motor BS goes out the window. Your best move isn't your best spinning back kick, it's whatever is the worst move for your opponent.

2. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you... Chances are GOOD 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 OPPOSITE DIRECTION!

Sure. Even something as simple as a 'pattern interrupt' can help here. Ask a question. That engages a brain long enough to git.

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 everybody else will.

This HAS saved lives!

OR pull the glow in the dark trunk release

Rule of thumb - NEVER go mobile!

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars directly after shopping, eating, working, etc. and just sit there doing their checkbook, or making a list, or on their phone, or whatever....

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, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go.

AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR , [COLOR="rgb(65, 105, 225)"]LOCK THE DOORS[/COLOR] AND LEAVE! If someone is in the car with a gun to your head, DO NOT DRIVE OFF.

Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF!As above: Do NOT go mobile - EVER!!

Instead, floor the accelerator and speed into anything, wrecking the car in the process. Your Air Bag will save you.

OR toss your keys in his face, and bolt

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 FAR 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 of your immediate surrounds: 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 security guard/policeman to walk you back out.

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

Actually, pressure test all this crap by heading out to the parking garage, the stairwell etc etc etc and learn how to manage the half dozen attacks you'll be faced with. Throw in a mouth guard and go to town. If you take defence classes and they don't ask you to bring a mouth guard , leave. It'll be useless in real world defense.

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot.

This is especially true at NIGHT!

Until the power goes out!

IF you get in an elevator do NOT stand by the buttons. Predator walks in, asks you to press 7 and THAT is HIS pattern interrupt to bury you...

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

RUN! Preferably in a zig-zag pattern to throw off his aim!

Sure. But a .22, knife, bat and I'm standing my ground. Your mileage may vary. Be safe…

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: For the love of God, STOP IT!!! It may get you raped, hurt or killed.

Ted Bundy - the serial killer - was a good-looking, charismatic, 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.

Feigned passivity if you're a woman. Even a guy can easily employ this tactic. I do. It's remarkable how CLOSE you can keep your 'tools' when you do this, AND keep them off a predators radar as the threats they are.

Women - bide your time, await your opening and go bat shit crazy! I think it was the Son of Sam who when asked why he didn't rape/kill all his intended victims stated 'they put up a fuss, they started screaming and that scared me off!'.


9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.. The lady 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 get run over.

The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.'

He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded, and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.

I started doing something decades ago - IF I heard something outside (we used to have a prowler) AND I went out to investigate I decided to ALWAYS lock the door behind me. Makes sense, right? Easily overlooked though...

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 water faucets full blast, so as that you will go out to investigate. Bait! Then they attack you.

Good stuff, Grub. I always like to have my wife drive around with our youngest dog, Violet. She is an 83 lb. American Pit Bull Terrier. She is actually the sweetest dog in the world, but when she sits in the passenger seat and stares out the window, she looks like impending death! Any would-be attacker would most likely shy away from her truck.

If only an attacker knew its name was Violet....



I agree.

I've had Rottweilers all my life. Helped breed them for a short while back home. My last one was 142lb. at his peak and was intimidating as hell. It wasn't just looks. He was. But I had him well trained.

People thought it was a bear.

Back a few years ago when my wife was a state prosecutor, she use to go to victims houses to interview them about the crimes against. Most lived in poor, government housed, high crime areas. I always made sure Raidan was in the car with her.

Worked well.

Yeah, but just add an "n" and it becomes Violent. Cool on Raidan. My buddy breeds Rotties. Awesome dogs.
