Safety tips for Women 1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: 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
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.
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 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
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.
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
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 in
100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital
organ. RUN, Preferably ! in a zig-zag pattern!
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
************* Here it is *******
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 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 cry 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 should be taken seriously
because the Crying Baby theory was mentioned on America's Most
Wanted this past Saturday when they profiled the serial killer
