Safety tips for you ladies out there

I just got this from my step-father in my email. I thought it was worthwhile to pass it along here.

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



2. Learned this from a tourist guide in New Orleans. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. 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 everybody else will. This has saved lives.



4. 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 perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger ! side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go.< /B> AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.



5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:

A.) Be aware: 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 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).



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



8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP. It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, 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 me that 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 wo uld 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 crying outside their doors, when they're home alone at night.



Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby. This e-mail should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby theory was mentioned on America's Most Wanted this past Saturday 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 candl! e 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, daughters, etc., you may want to pass it onto them, as well.



Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it, and it's better to be safe than sorry.

Thank you Allen!!
I don't park near vans and just pray that there isn't one near me when I come out. My son laughed at me the other day for this, I'm going to show this to him and hope will understand why I do it. He thinks I'm just paranoid.

Thanks Allen! I'm always very alert when going to & from my car even if it is in my own driveway. It's such a habit, that I even do it when hubby is with me.

Another little tip: When you leave a store or work, get your keys out before you walk out the door. Place the keys in the palm of your hand with the metal part of several keys sticking out from between your fingers (like making a fist around your key ring & the keys are your fingers). If someone tries to grab you, hit them with the protruding keys & RUN! Chances are, you'll have the persons DNA on the keys & you can turn them over to the police. I'd rather have to get a new set of keys than have my life taken.

If anyone is thinking that maybe running would anger them when they weren't going to shoot you in the first place, more than likely, they would kill you anyway if they are holding a loaded gun. I would rather run and risk being killed than be grabbed and whatever horrible thing they had planned and then die.

Just thought of another one, turn your rings with the set facing the inside of your hand. If you need to slap a predator, your rings will cut them. There again, DNA & a chance to hurt them & run away.
