Defense Against Crime

14/07/2017

Before you send her off to College…


Ready4College_26Recent campus safety statistics show an increased danger for mostly female students—with up to 1 in 5 college women experiencing and reporting sexual assault and nearly 10,000 students each year enduring aggravated assaults and robberies during their time in college. These facts are gathered by the Government Crime Data.

PEPPEREYES – SELF DEFENCE PRODUCTS is working to enhance awareness of the safety steps students need to take when they get to campus or go off campus. However, we also want to encourage students to take every opportunity to learn the programs their campus offers to help keep them safe.

Here are a few things Students should do

  • Before unpacking your boxes, students should check out what free safe ride or the campus offers walking services.
  • Students should take every safety seminar or attend a self-defense class (like RAD). Many colleges offer student free or for credit, and the techniques and strategies can be lifesaving.
  • For students moving from dorms to apartments, a personal alarm, door Alarm provides portable security. Compact options of a Dorm/Apartment hidden safes for keeping personal belongings safe are also available.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings. Listening to music through headphones or looking down at a cell phone can impede your ability to be alert.
  • Prepare themselves with pepper sprays or other legal products—one of the most effective ways to deter or distract an attacker, and permitted on most campuses. PEPPEREYES – SELF DEFENCE PRODUCTS has the most potent and reliable options on the market.
  • Stick together—there is safety in numbers, so stay close to friends when going out or coming home late from parties.

When Dogs Attack!


Let’s me start by saying I am a dog person. I’ve had by current dog for almost a decade, and we travel together a lot.  Not only that, but my spoiled pooch is a person dog. This means she likes people. Don’t get it wrongs she a great watch dog, she instantly alerts us if someone comes into our yard.

None the less there are at least 4.5 – 4.7 million Americans are bitten by dogs every year hqdefaultand, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 20 to 30 of these dog attacks result in death.

I know that on several occasions I’ve encountered not only stray dogs, but dogs that have escaped their owners. If a strange barking dog came at you what would you do? Are your ready to defend yourself from a dog attack?

Think about this! Bite bites can lead to serious infections such as tetanus and rabies, disability, and deformity. You can reduce your chances of this buy having the right tools and knowing how to use them.

One of the tools that I encourage people who like to go for walks or bike rides to carry is Pepper Spray. You may ask –“Is pepper spray effective against a malicious dog”?   If a mean dog attacks you, spraying it with dog repellants pepper spray  in its face will cause the dog temporary blindness, shortness of breath and a burning sensation until its effect wears off. The dog has no other option but to retreat; allowing you the opportunity to get away. If you jog, take walks or ride your bike, then you should carry dog repellent pepper spray with you. Pepper Spray is legal, lightweight, easily accessible, and will provide fast protection when you need it most.

Important People vs Attack Dog Safety Tips

If a Dog Runs After You When Jogging

I know this sounds bizarre, but running excites dogs. Remember my nice dog. If I’m riding and she has her head out the window. She will actually bark at runners.  What you should do when encountering a dog when running is stop running. The first thing, is Don’t Panic. Remember many animals “sense fear”. Say confident and slowly and steadily move away without making and aggressive moves. With any luck, you can safely walk out of the dog’s roving range. Should the dog attempt to attack you, use your pepper spray.

What if I don’t want to pepper spray a dog?

Are there ways to avoid using pepper spray on an attacking dog? OK, so you don’t want to cause psychological harm to a dog. First, when possible never approach an unfamiliar dog. You don’t know the dogs history. There are rescue dogs that have issues. There are dogs that don’t like certain types of people. You may be the type of person the dog fears.  Like rattlesnakes, some dogs warn you not to come near them. The may growl or their hair may stand up on their back.  First, you should never run from a dog and scream.  Second, avoid direct eye contact with a dog. The dog may view this act as a challenge. Next, never disturb any dog that is sleeping, eating, or caring for puppies. If you are attacked and you don’t have pepper spray or don’t want to “feed” the dog something else–your jacket, bike, purse, books – to distract it.

Another technique is to remain motionless when approached by an unfamiliar dog (but have your dog pepper spray in your hand). Do not run when confronted with a threatening dog. Running only stimulates the dog to increase its aggression. Hold your ground and demonstrate moderate dominance by telling the dog firmly to go home. This usually works wonders. Firmly saying “no” and “sit” may also work. You might try: “Go away,” “Go home” or “Nice dog”.

What to do If You’re Knocked Down by an Aggressive Dog

If an aggressive dog happens to knocks me down before you a chance to get to your pepper spray you should curl into a ball, ticking your knees in and use your hand to protect sensitive areas like your head and neck. If you get a change to make a strong kick. Do so. You can also use a commanding voice to tell the dog to “Stop”.   Resist the urge to scream or roll away. A moving target may encourage the dog.

Remember people have been killed by dog attacks, so do what you need to do to stay alive. Remember when it’s you or them. Choose you.

Amazon E-Mail Scam


Today I opened my Hotmail account and I saw all these cancellation notices from

ComputerScam

Beware the mail in your in-box

Amazon. Now while I am an Amazon user, the items that it said I cancelled, I never ordered. One of these things I did notice was all of the telltale sign that this was fake.

1) I never ordered these books from Amazon. I usually get them on my Kindle.

2) I’m pretty sure Amazon never sends updates (I’ve never gotten one, and I do order from Amazon monthly)

2) If I log unto my Amazon Account these items do not appear.

3) When I hover over then links that take you to a Choctaw.php script on http://androidprocessor.com/wp-content/uploads.    Amazon E-mails go to Amazon.com and NO WHERE ELSE.

WARNING. If you decide to check this out ..don’t blame us for the consequences of what may happen to your computer.

Now I don’t get confirmation E-mails from Amazon, but there are spoof e-mails that are designed to get you to think that you have received legitimate e-mail from Amazon. The e-mail will usually take you to a fake site that only wants to get your personal information, like username and password, social security number, banking info, or other valuable information.

Since the planet just experienced a Malware/Ransomeware attack, let me remind my read you that these types of e-mails is how your computer gets hacked or hi-jacked.  The nice thing was that My Hotmail account had put these in my junk e-mail bin anyways.

Recently computer experts noticed that PHP and Pearl scripts are an ideal platform for evil and malicious web sites. For those of you who are not computer programmers and tech-junkies, PHP is an easy to learn computer (web) Programming language. Almost all Web servers run the PHP engine, so there are large numbers of potential “victims” (though the numbers are not anything near to the number of Windows-using potential malware victims). The most successful malicious PHP scripts permit their users (the criminals) to control and manipulate Web servers for their own benefit and, most commonly, profit.

If you want to know how evil programed use php to commit their crimes, there are many articles on the web for you to read, so we are not going to discuss it here.

HOW NOT TO BE A VICTIM.

  1. Just remember NOT to TRUST ANY E-mail with a link in it. Always over your mouse over it and look at the bottom left of your computer screen to see where it will take you. If it look suspicious, DON’T Click it.
  2. Have your anti-virus and malware software up to date.
  3. Make sure to back up your computer every week.
  4. If you get an e-mail from a company you do deal with, it’s safer to just log into that company’s site and communicate there.
  5. If you do receive an Spoof E-mail from Amazon. Report it. Go to https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=15835501  To get the instructions.

The Difference between Mace and Pepper Spray


Sometimes people think Pepper Spray and Mace are the same thing.  One hand they can be on the other hand they are not.  Confused?  Well, let’s fix that. There are lots of brand names that are used instead of the name of the actual product. Think of names like Jacuzzi, Zamboni, Kleenex or Crock-Pot.  One type of Mace is a chemical compound and other is a Company brand name that made the chemical compound.

MACE (the actual trademark chemical compound) has not been in use for over 17 years.

Police using Mace in a 60's riot

Police using Mace in a 60’s riot

Chemical “mace” was first invented in 1965 by Allan Lee Litman, founder and co-owner of Pittsburgh-based General Ordnance Equipment Corporation (GOEC), after his wife, Doris, was threatened on the street . It contained an active ingredient called phenacyl chloride (CN) . In 1987, Chemical Mace was sold to Smith & Wesson and manufactured by their Lake Erie Chemical division. Smith & Wesson subsequently transferred ownership to Jon E. Goodrich along with the rest of the chemical division in what is now Mace Security International. Though the design has been expanded on, the original Chemical Mace formula using only CN has since been discontinued. Due to the potentially toxic nature of CN and the generally superior incapacitating qualities of oleoresin capsicum (OC) pepper spray in most situations, the early CN has been mostly supplanted by OC formulas in police use, although Mace Security International still retains a popular “Triple Action” formula combining CN, OC and an ultraviolet marker dye.

The Mace chemical compound is an irritant that is very similar to tear gas. Mace (the chemical) unlike pepper spray will NOT cause inflammation of the capillaries causing temporary blindness, nausea, make breathing difficult as well as create a very strong burning or stinging sensation. Chemical Mace is dispersed as a liquid that temporarily disables a person; prepared as an aerosol and sprayed in the face, it irritates the eyes and causes dizziness and immobilization

Once the chemical Mace was also under the Mace brand and was used as a primary self-defense product.

However today all of the Mace’s brand products are now are either straight OC Pepper Spray and /or OC /Tear gas combinations or OC Pepper foam. There for the Mace brand is referred to as the product, like chap stick.

Pepper spray (sometimes called  as Mace or capsicum spray) is a lachrymatory agent (a chemical compound that irritates the eyes to cause tears, pain, and temporary blindness). Pepper Spray is used by law enforcement, security, and personal self-defense, including defense against dogs and bears,  alley cats, rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, Wangdoodles, Hornswogglers, Snozzwangers, and rotten, Vermicious Knids.

Pepper Spray with its painful inflammatory effects cause the eyes to close, taking away vision. This temporary blindness allows officers to more easily restrain subjects and permits people using pepper spray for self-defense an opportunity to escape. Although considered a less-than-lethal agent, it has been deadly in rare cases for people with pepper allergies, and concerns have been raised about a number of deaths where being pepper sprayed may have been a contributing factor.

As of this writing, Pepper Spray is legal to carry in all 50 states.

Can carrying Pepper Spray truly make you safer?


If you troll thru this blog you can see plethora of articles on the usefulness of pepper spray and other self-defense products and techniques.  Will having any of these self-defense products really make you safer?

The short answer is: It depends!

  • It depends on your mindset at the time of the incident
  • It depends on your ability to effectively use Pepper Spray or whatever you have correctly.
  • It depend on …well keep reading.

First, let me state that Pepper Spray is an effective self-defense product that has been used for decades to not only depend citizens and law enforcement personnel ifbxp35697 used correctly in the right situations.  And the art of this type of defense dates back centuries.

However, there are people who carried or owned pepper spray who have still been crime victims because they were not prepared.  There are a number of reason why having it didn’t work..for them.

  • They panicked, and did not focus on self-defense.
  • They didn’t know how to properly use it
  • They could not get to it, in the bottom of their purse or other inaccessible place.
  • It was a surprise attack and they were caught off guard because they were not paying attention.
  • Your attacker was in the minority of the population that are immune to the effects of Pepper Spray for various reasons.
  • Your pepper spray had expired.
  • The assailant is wearing glasses or was prepared
  • The Pepper Spray was defective and you did not know it.

While this is not an exhaustive list, it probably represents a majority of reasons why just having pepper spray will not help you.  The good news is that many of these issues can be negated with the embracing PepperEyes.com motto…which is Get Ready..Stay Ready.   You can also embrace the motto of the Boy Scouts of America : Be Prepared.

Any self-defense product, including pepper spray, Tasers, or a gun, requires that you be prepared mentally and physically and have it available to use. Pepper Spray, like most weapons, can be taken away from you and then be used against you, if you are not prepared and able to use it at the correct moment. In the case of just owning pepper, spray think of sexual assaults.  It is estimated that 80% to 85% of all sexual assault victims know their attackers and fifty percent of assaults occur inside the victim’s own home. Rapists are not always the stranger in the alley or the weirdo in the parking lot. If a fraction of these victims owned a self-dense product, how prepared are they to use it?   Chances are they were not.

Think about being on a date. Think about going to a party. Ponder the different people you know who may come to your house often.  A deliveryman, a Utility worker, a client.  What is your mindset?  How prepared are you, if you are put in a position of being harmed. What if you have pepper spray or another self-defense product but can’t get to it and use it?

This is why a self-defense mindset and preparation is essential.  When a soldier has ran out of bullets and the enemy is coming, there are only two options.  Fight or Flight.  If you can’t get away, how prepared are you to fight. If you can’t use your pepper spray, you have the same two options. How prepared you to fight.

Just something to think about.

If you read this blog, you can learn how to develop a self-defense mindset.
