    Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or

    Written by a Cop for Our Own Safety

    (PLEASE DON'T DELETE. THIS MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE)




    Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one's life.

    In daylight hours, refresh yourself

    of these things to do in an emergency situation...

    This is for you, and for you to share with everyone you know.

    After reading these 9 crucial tips,

    forward them to someone you care about.

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


    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.

    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.

    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,

    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.

    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 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 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 taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and
    then attack.

    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 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..
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    Thank you for the reminders. You hear these tips, but get busy in our lives and forget to be careful. I made a copy for my DD. Older lady's are being mugged and hurt here for their handbags in busy parking lots in daylight hours. You have to be on watch of who is around you.
