Call Ahead Convenience Going Too Far

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 24 March, 2010

The fast pace of today’s society is moving at lightning speed, and nowhere is the demand faster than in the good old US of A. We want fast food, fast cars, 24/7 communication, fast computers on faster broadband internet connections, 1 hour photos, instant music download, same day repairs, and faster than fast service from the businesses we patronize.

I’m all for faster service and convenient accommodations. Drive through windows at banks and fast food restaurants are good. Free delivery at pizza joints, call ahead seating or curbside carryout… Some people even pay a nominal extra fee for this without question. Whatever allows for quicker transactions or lazier customers, we live in a fast pace, fast food world.

But somewhere you need to draw the line. And I’m not just talking about the speed for quality trade off. Somewhere common sense must kick in…

Let’s take this pair of would-be bank robbers from the fast paced area of Fairfield, Connecticut. Police arrested the 16-year-old kid and 27-year-old Albert Bailey in the parking lot of a People’s United Bank before the crime actually occurred.

Apparently the pair decided to test out the speed and helpfulness of the customer service department at the bank and called ahead so the bank would have a full bag of cash ready for them to steal when they got there. I mean they don’t want to waste anybody’s time…

10 minutes later when the speed demons arrived to quickly collect their loot, the police apprehended the guys. Police commented that the suspects were simply “not too bright.”

Hopefully they get a speedy trial.

Be Safe, Be Prepared, Be Fast, but not too Fast.

Connecticut residents may soon carry TASER Devices outside the home

Posted by Rob on Friday, 5 March, 2010

Currently, residents of Connecticut can only keep a TASER Device in their home. But now, some forward thinking lawmakers in Hartford are finally considering a bill that would allow them to carry TASER devices for personal protection wherever they go. Let’s face it, not all criminal acts occur within the confines of your own home. CT state law dictates a fine of up to $500, up to three years in jail or both to any law abiding citizen that is caught with a Taser outside their domicile.

TASER devices are not considered firearms by the U.S. Government and can be legally carried (concealed or open) without a permit in 43 other US states.

In police studies, they have found that TASER Devices may have a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun. TASER Devices, not to be confused with contact stun guns, shoots out 2 darts attached to 15 feet of wire. This device packs 50,000 volts, which travels through the wires and over-rides the target’s central nervous system providing incredible take down power, even through 2 inches of clothing.

While firearms are also widely popular self defense weapons, not everyone wants to carry a gun that has the potential for taking a life in self-defense, even the life of a low life thug attempting to harm them or their family. Traditional stun guns, which are also popular and effective, do require you to be dangerously close to your attacker (although your TASER C2 can be used as a contact stun gun in a pinch). The personal TASER C2 eliminates many problems some individuals have, providing a less-than-lethal way to stop aggression and allow you quickly escape dangerous situations to contact the police.

Hopefully the other couple of states that still restrict TASER Device use by law abiding citizens will follow Connecticut’s lead and reconsider their pro-criminal ways and allow their citizens to remain on equal ground.

Don’t TASE me Bro!
