Because of some recent publicized abductions in
daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to
do in an emergency situation...This is for you, and
for you to share....
1. The elbow 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
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. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR,
LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.
a. 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
b. 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
a. Be aware: look around you, look into your
car, at the passenger side floor, and in the
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.)
