Here is a scenario for you. You or a loved one is walking down the street, an alley, a parking lot, you pick the locale. One, two or three guys, the number doesn’t really matter, start to verbally accost and threaten physical harm.
You have a standard cell phone. What do you do? Dial the police and hope for the best? Get mugged, beat up, raped, or killed?
Or have you armed yourself with a selection of self defense tools to aid in your survival? I hope that you are not encountering dangerous situations on a regular basis, if you are you may want to modify your daily routine or whereabouts.
But making a conscience decision to carry some pepper spray, a stun gun, a C2 taser, telescopic steel baton or any combination of those and other available self defense weapons to have at your disposal can help sway the odds in your favor. Perhaps you can talk your way out of the situation, which always would be best. Perhaps a cop is just happening to be in the immediate area.
But more realistically, when seconds count, the police are minutes away… Self Defense means just that, defending yourself. Don’t be caught unprepared, waiting for someone to swoop in the rescue. Take matters into your own hands, and buy, practice using, and defend yourself or loved ones quickly and effectively.
So if seconds count and the police are at least a couple minute away, where are they? And don’t say the local donut shop.
Well in the past couple days we have had a few reports of why the police may be too busy to respond at a moments notice, especially in the Florida area.
Last week in Jacksonville, a guy called 911 to complain that a Subway left the sauce off a spicy Italian sandwich. Now this guy was really irate, was asked to leave the restaurant, got locked outside, while he called 911 and the workers called the police. All over a sandwich.
Next we have a guy at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino near Tampa, who was having some bad luck and called 911 to say the slot machine stole his money. Not just once, but he called a second time once he left to casino. I mean I get ripped off every time I go to the gas station and the pump “steals” my money, but I’m not calling 911 about it.
Then yet another man was arrested after calling 911 during an heated, not serious argument with his brother. He called 911 five times to demand that dispatchers send the police to help sort things out.
All were charged with making a false 911 calls.
Not that long ago I heard at least 2 or 3 stories about some drug dealers and buyers who each were calling 911 after a drug deal went wrong. Now those calls I don’t mind.
So the next time you actually need to call in an emergency, don’t forget you are competing with condiment emergencies, gambling losses and shady drug deals.
Protect yourself and loved ones now. And remember, when seconds count, the police are minutes away…
Yours in Safety,
