    Good Tips for Safety

    Crucial
    Because of recent abductions
    In daylight hours, refresh yourself
    of these things to do
    in an emergency situation...
    This is for you,
    and for you to share
    with your wife,
    your children,
    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 chequebook, 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 ball so that you will go out to investigate and
    then attack.

    Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbours!
    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
