Forget all that liberal/progressive nonsense that profiling is wrong.  Profiling can save your life and should be used as an effective situational awareness tool.  Profiling is not a bad thing; in fact it is ingrained into the human species as part of our instinctive genetic makeup.  

If you doubt this let’s consider the following example.  You are going to visit a friend in an apartment building late at night.  While waiting in the lobby you push the button for the two elevators that are there; and they both come down at the same time.  When the doors open; in one elevator are six old ladies, none of whom get off the elevator, who are smiling and well mannered.  In the second elevator are six men dressed in gang colors who also do not get off the elevator, and they are covered with tatoos and look really pissed at the world.  Which elevator are you going to get into?

The answer is obvious; you are going to get into the elevator with the old ladies.  Congratulations; profiling has just potentially saved you from being raped, robbed,  assaulted,  beaten, or killed.  Political correctness is pure nonsense and anyone who believes in the notion of political correctness is free to get on the other elevator with the gang members and take their chances.

It is imperative; and I stress imperative that folks understand that violent crime has the potential to strike anyone at anytime.  Knowing this it becomes important to be situationally aware of who and what is around you and to have a plan to deal with potentially dangerous situations if they develop. Many criminals look for victims of opportunity; which means people who are not paying attention to where they are, what they are doing, and who appear weak and vulnerable.  So let’s talk about some things you need to be particularly aware of.

  • Avoid dangerous places which means don’t go to bad parts of the city or to drug and crime infested areas.
  • Don’t go to desolate, out of the way ATM’s alone and don’t go up and down stairwells alone in places like parking garages.
  • Don’t flash lots of cash, or expensive rings, or watches in public places.
  • Remember there are bad people out there who only see you as an obstacle to getting what they want.  They will think nothing of hurting, raping, or killing you to achieve their objectives.
  • Always keep your fully charged cell phone handy, keep your car doors locked when driving, and when parked, and have your self defense weapons accessible.
  • Know where your children are going, the routes they are taking, and when they are leaving and when they should be back.
  • Know who your chidren’s friends are and make sure you have their phone numbers in case you need to reach them.
  • Train properly with your self defense weapons of choice such as pepper spray, hand to hand fighting skills, knife, gun, etc.
  • Make yourself a hard target; which means make yourself appear to be someone who will be too difficult to rob, rape, or assault.  Criminals want easy targets; if you appear to be a hard target they will pass you by in search of easier prey.

Violent crime is everywhere which is why the right of the people to keep and bear arms and the ability to defend yourself and your family is so very important.

The following may open some peoples eyes as to why you need to be able to defend yourself against thugs and violent predators.

  • Home invasions in the United States occur every 13 seconds.
  • 59% of burglaries occur during the day and 41% of burglaries occur at night.
  • Violent crime increased by 22% according to the Justice Department.
  • For the fourth year in a row Detroit tops the list of most dangerous U.S. cities followed by Washington DC.
  • Traditionally violent crime increases during the warmer months and decreases during the colder months.
  • What do burglars and violent criminals fear even more than the police? Encountering an armed homeowner during a break in.
  • Residential homes are where 60% of rapes occur.
  • Rapes in the United States occur every 2 minutes.
  • If you can make a 911 call the average response time for police depending on your area is between 11-24 minutes.  A lot of violent things can happen to a person during that period of time.

Now more than ever it is so important to legally own firearms and get proper training in their use especially as applies to self defense scenarios.  Do what you need to do to keep  you and your family safe and out of harms way.

Danger and violent crime do not make appointments.  Think about how quickly you can or cannot access your self defense weapons if your life or your families lives are in imminent danger.  Is it quick enough?  If not; you may need to re-think your defensive survival plans.  Remember proper planning and proper training  is essential when it comes to survival.  Violent crime is often quick and overwhelming so you need to prepare accordingly.  So think about your plan and ask yourself is it the best it can be; or can I make my self defense plan better?

You have the right and the responsibility to defend yourself from a criminal attack.  In any scenario; it is important to be aware of all that is around you as part of your 360 degree security plan.  You need to pay particular attention to anyone or anything which seems out of place.  Trust your instincts, do not ignore them as your first concern will be to stay alive.

You are your own first line of defense.  Based on circumstances; the course of action you choose needs to be carried through without hesitation.  When faced with violence, which cannot be avoided, you must have the will to act with ferocity and severity in order to save your life.

It is irrational in this day and age that a law abiding citizen would not carry some form of a weapon.  To choose not to carry a weapon intentionally renders yourself partially defenseless.  Violence is escalating and many attacks occur in fringe areas such as deserted parking lots, alleyways, public bathrooms, stairwells, ATM kiosks, etc., where no immediate help will be available.

The most reliable and powerful weapon will do you no good if a situation demands immediate, decisive action for your survival and you fail to take action.  While it is best to avoid violence; if you are in a life threatening situation you may need to react violently to save your life.  Never escalate a situation which could turn violent until you consider where it might lead.  Remember you are your own first line of self defense.

Tactics are an important element when the SHTF.  Here are some tactics to consider as the need arises.  Move quietly, don’t travel in a straight line, avoid main roads, never go back the same way that you came, never use the same ambush site twice and remember if you can see the enemy the chances are that the enemy can see you too.

Avoid predictable patterns, watch carefully for trip wires and booby traps, do not step on twigs as the sound of a twig breaking will travel a considerable distance.  Avoid using or wearing shiny objects and stay away from locations which leave you vulnearable such as alleyways and dimly lit parking lots.

Pay attention to sounds.  Birds suddenly moving away from a location are an indicator of movement.  Know your enemy and keep your weapons within arms reach.  Your mission will dictate your weapons choices; there is no such thing as one correct weapon for all scenarios.  You must learn to become aggressive enough quickly enough.

Never submit to threats or allow an enemy to isolate you in a vehicle or abandoned building.  If you do get into a vehicle make sure the car door will open from the inside before closing that door, as some unscrupulous folks will disable the inside door handles to prevent them from working.  Never allow yourself to become incapacitated especially if bindings are produced such as rope, cord, duct tape, zip ties, wire or handcuffs.

Minimize your risk profile as most attacks are crimes of opportunity.  Pay attention to your gut instincts; if something feels wrong it probably is wrong.  Stay safe and stay situationally aware at all times.

After a SHTF situation occurs; violent crime levels will increase.  Theft, burglary, kidnapping, arson, rape and murder will be the new norm.  You will need to be armed and have the proper skills to defend yourself with your weapons of choice.  Insanity will reign in the inner cities and will spread out to the suburbs and then the rural areas. Not enough law enforcement will be available to contain the violent inner city residents so you must become your own first line of self defense. 

If you expect massive civil unrest, economic hardships, political instability, etc., you must have the necessary means, via  weapons and proper weapons training to defend yourself from violent attacks.  Socio-political and economic instability can trigger psychological instability in people which will lead to a rise in violent crimes.  Don’t become an easy target for those who can do you harm.  Don’t become a refugee and never ever give up your ability or desire to resist against a violent aggressor.
