Defense Against Crime

Out for a walk? Don’t be a Risk Taker.


A quick search on the internet or just watching the news on the TV indicate that anyone can be a crime victim. The following crimes are samples of things that have happened in the past few months.

     * A woman walking home early Saturday morning from a bar was attacked and robbed- May 25, 2010|By Pamela Lehman
     * Voluntown – State police say a 21-year-old man suffered a broken jaw and eye socket early Saturday morning when he was assaulted while walking along Route 138 – May 24th, 2010

  •  According to the Department of Justice Crime Statistics 

    • Every 15 seconds, someone in the US is robbed.
    • Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted.
    • Every 6 minutes, someone in the U.S. is raped. 

    You’re always vulnerable when you walk down the street you would think that your own neighborhood would be safe. If you are running or walking alone, in the dark or in secluded areas you are at risk. Each time you are unprepared, you may be exposing yourself to criminal elements; criminals who may see a female joggers or walkers as easy marks. As you can tell from the news headlines even men have been attacked or robbed while jogging or walking alone. Some criminals have figured out that a jogger may be too out of breath to put up a fight, thus, easy pickings for robbery and/or rape. Physical fitness should be an important part of your daily life, just make sure you are protected as well.

    Are you aware that most assaults take place within 1 mile of a person’s home or workplace? These attacks just don’t happen when you are walking near your home or to and from a parking garage. You can be a crime victim anywhere, even at the local shopping center or in a restaurant. According to crime experts, violent assaults can also be committed for a number of reasons including racial, sexual or other discrimination. This is one of the reasons why it is important to always carry
    pepper spray and have it where you can get to it.

     Once you become a victim of crime or crime creeps into your neighborhood, it can shatter your sense of safety, causing anger, loss of confidence, guilt and sadness or depression. If you are ready to defend yourself with pepper spray and send an attacker running, you will instead feel the emotions of victory.
