Employee won't call 9-1-1. I need your help.
I work in a ground floor office building in a downtown urban area. The foot traffic and drive-by traffic over the past 10 years has steadily declined in safety. I carry daily and have learned an incredible amount from all of you and refer to this site for guidance when something happens at or near work or home and bothers me enough to think about how I would react in any given situation.
One of my female employees thinks she is bigger, tougher, faster, and smarter than a bad guy. At 46, daughter of a deceased cop, she weighs maybe 95 lbs at 5'4" and is frail looking. She constantly works late and goes to her car by herself after dark and will sometimes sit in her car, door open or unlocked, and text or talk on the phone. I have warned her several times, coached her, asked her to get some carry lessons and a gun. I even bought her pepper spray but she leaves it in her car or loans it to her 15-year old son.
She was working alone tonight about 8:00 pm there were a couple cars in the parking lot with a few teenagers/young adults being rowdy. She was sure they were using and dealing drugs. Her office window faces the parking lot but she has shades drawn. When she heard them in the lot she peeks out the shades and they spot her. Pretty soon they're pounding on her window. She didn't call 9-1-1. She waited til she thought they were gone and left the building - they were at the end of the parking lot. She hurries to her Mini Cooper, gets in and locks the door and starts to drive away as they are harassing her. She called the sheriff's office, not 9-1-1 to have them drive by. Now she's mad at the bad guys for being in the parking lot messing around. Knowing the neighborhood crowd I told her she is lucky to be alive.
Here's what I need some help with: I think if she could view some actual videos of the fierceness of an attack, and the speed and violence that accompanies an attack, she might be convinced of the uneven playing field. I'm not a big guy but I could easily hold her at bay with one arm and dial my cell phone with the opposite hand. Limatunes, she's smaller than you by about 5 - 10 pounds.
So, some convincing links to videos or audio or sites would be appreciated.
