How do you check out possible threats
You are going through out your daily routine, and something catches your attention, someone coming up behind you as you walk along, or someone that you can't quit see, but other than their position (tactical advantage over you) you have no real reason to believe it's nothing more than coincidence that they just happen to be there.
Not wanting to seem like a Paranoid skitzo, how do you casually give them a glance to asses the situation without going into full defensive mode and creating a scene where there is no need. We pass hundreds if not thousands of people every year, month or even week, there has to be some level of civility in our actions.
The other day my wife and I were down town for a graduation, (we avoid the city like the plague) My wife was to my left and I was on the street side of her, I was able to look at her while talking and in the windows reflection on the buildings watch the two people walking behind us. Their appearance gave a slight reason to keep an eye on them, but their actions gave no indication of a threat. I myself in my younger days wouldn't have hurt a soul, but my appearance in old ripped jeans and rock t-shirts I'm sure I raised an eyebrow or two. :headbang:
