Defense Against Crime

23/07/2008

What would you do if it happened to you

Ponder this question “Would you know what to do if someone suddenly came up behind you in a parking lot? What would you do if someone suddenly tried forcing open your front door? Would you know how to react? Would you know how to defend yourself?

An estimated 683,000 adult American women are forcibly raped each year. Every minute in the United States there are 1.3 forcible rapes of adult women; 78 women are forcibly raped each hour. Every day, 1,871 women are forcibly raped, equal to 56,916 forcible rapes each month. (National Victim Center and Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Rape in America. – A Report to the Nation. 1992).

One of the reasons that I decided to start PepperEyes.com is the alarming rate of these attacks, abductions, rapes and murders. Perhaps your think that it won’t happen to you! That was the same mind frame of all the other victims. Because of the rise of crime more and more people are utilizing personal self defense devices, such as pepper spray or stun guns.

Several studies state that “more and more people are utilizing personal defense devices to fend off attackers. Places such as parking lots, can be an ideal location for attackers to plan an assault. It can even happen in your own home. Statistics show that there are more and more personal attacks – even in areas that traditionally have very low crime rates. You may want to Google the crime rates for these types of crimes in your city, and these are just the reported one. The National Women’s Study (1992) findings show that 84% of rape survivors did not report their rape to the police.

The same reports state that Police and the law enforcement community more and more people are purchasing personal protection devices such as 17% oc pepper spray, disguised stun guns, or other devices such as personal alarms. In addition, devices are becoming easier to use and more discreet. For instance, pepper spray no longer comes only in a canister which could tip off a would-be attacker. Pepper spray is available in everything from the key rings bob, to pagers, to subtle innocent looking pens.

Isn’t your personal safety worth it? We are always being alerted to be prepared of disasters. It is important that you be prepared with the right tools and the right knowledge. To that end we are committed to have tips advice and perhaps person stories to help you to be prepared.
