Violent criminals seek out those who appear weak, defenseless, and who are not paying attention to what is going on around them.  In order to avoid violent attacks or to survive them if you are involved in one, the following things should be strongly considered.

  • Walk with confidence and project confidence.  Give the impression that you would be a hard target.
  • Avoid dangerous places and dangerous neighborhoods.
  • Be situationally aware of what is going on around you.
  • Where legal, carry a defensive weapon and be proficient in its use.
  • Keep your cell phone fully charged and available.
  • Don’t take needless risks such as jogging alone through the woods or walking through alleys as a shortcut to your destination.
  • Use your environment as a tool such as using store windows to see if you are being followed.  If you suspect danger get out of there and seek assistance immediately.
  • Don’t let politeness make you a target.  If someone encroaches on your territory or you get a bad vibe tell them to get back or back off.
  • Take responsibility for your own safety.
  • If you are attacked fight to win.  Know the strike points on the human body that will quickly incapacitate an attacker. 

You can take a look at some of my apocalyptic, zombie, or horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page by clicking on the book cover images.  If they interest you then I hope you will consider purchasing a copy.
