Why Choose Non-Lethal Self Defense? This Is Why

Share

Why choose non-lethal self defense products instead of firearms that could be deadly? There are numerous advantages to choosing non-lethal self defense products for personal security. Here is one very real example.

A Baton Rouge man has been booked on a charge of MANSLAUGHTER after allegedly chasing a burglar out of his house and shooting him outside.

According to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office website, 28-year-old Richard J. Alexander is free on bond.

Police Cpl. L’Jean McKneely says 23-year-old Keith Brown kicked Alexander’s door open and barged in late Friday. The police spokesman told the Baton Rouge Advocate that Alexander had a gun and chased Brown through the house, out the back door and down the driveway.

McKneely says Alexander called police immediately, telling investigators he shot because Brown pulled at his waistline.

Alexander has an unlisted number and could not be reached for comment.

McKneely says Alexander should have stopped his chase and police once Brown was outside.

Practical, Affordable Home Security Tips

Share

Home security should be at the top of your priority list. Every 14 seconds another burglary is committed. Every 12 seconds a forced entry home invasion occurs. Even worse two people are murdered every hour! Below is a list of ten easy, practical and affordable ways to improve your home security today.

1. Lock your doors, windows, and garage. This is easier said than done. Everyone knows that they should lock their doors and windows, but not everyone follows through. Make locking doors a part of you and your family’s daily routine and improved home security will follow.

2. Secure your doors, windows, and garage. Locking is not the same as securing, though it is the last part. Make sure that the locks are secure and can’t be easily broken, and also be sure there are no entrances that could offer a burglar the opportunity to get into your home or garage. This could be as simple as buying a stronger lock, or as difficult as having to replace windows and doors.

3. Don’t tempt fate. You’re so proud of that new TV, you want everyone to know about it. While it’s fine to brag to friends, be careful where you’re talking. Also, though you may see it as a showpiece, there is no reason the entire neighborhood should be able to see it through your window. If anyone who passes your house can see your new TV glowing, you better believe a burglar would take note, too.

4. Plentiful lighting. Having a well-lit path leading to your front door, good lighting outside your home and home entrances, and trimmed shrubs that do not obstruct view discourages prowlers from targeting your home. A dark home is an invitation to burglars who don’t want to be seen, just as a well-lit yard can complement a strong home security system.

5. Cancel deliveries when out of town. Another sure invitation to a burglar is a big stack of papers or mail outside your door or in your mailbox. Nothing says “I’m not here right now” louder than a giant pile of mail, flyers, and newspapers.

6. Change locks when moving to a new home. Just because they owned the same house as you, doesn’t mean they share the same values. By changing locks, you can ensure you won’t have to find out the hard way.

7. Don’t put your name and address on keychains/keys. It may go without saying, but is worth repeating: A lost key with no address is worthless to a thief. It’s like a treasure map without the “X” marking the spot. If your address or name is with or on the key, you’ve marked the spot.

8. Don’t hide a key outside the door. A lot of people worry about forgetting keys or locking themselves out of their home. Don’t let that worry open you up to a greater security threat. Most hiding spots aren’t as clever as you think they are, and burglars know all the tricks of the trade. If you hide a key, chances are they have a good idea about where to find it.

9. Install a peep hole in your front door. Just because they come knocking, doesn’t mean they’re any more trustworthy than someone who comes sneaking. You should never open the door for strangers, and this way you can tell if there is one at your door.

10. Speed-dial important numbers (cops, fire, school, poison control, etc.) This is just as much about personal safety as it is home security. Having a hospital or fire department on speed dial may save your life, and having the police there makes it that much easier in case of a break-in. While 9-1-1 is fast, pushing a single button and putting the phone on speaker may be all the time you have if a burglar gets into your home.

M-26C TASER FAQ

Share

The M-26C Taser Is An Extremely Effective Self Defense Weapon, Yet It Is Non-Lethal and Extremely Powerful!

SO HOW DOES AN M-26C Taser WORK? Upon firing, compressed nitrogen projects two M-26C Taser probes 15 feet at a speed of 135 feet per second. An electrical signal transmits throughout the region where the probes make contact with the body or clothing. The result is an instant loss of the attacker’s neuromuscular control and any ability to perform coordinated action. M-26C Taser uses an automatic timing mechanism to apply the electric charge. The M-26C Taser releases an electric current in a preset time sequence (an initial seven seconds followed by several 1.8 second breaks for a total time of about 30 seconds in each cycle). This cycle ensures that the nervous system of the target does not recover instantly to allow him to remove the probes. The follow-on bursts disrupt the process of re-equilibration of the nervous system. While the target is disabled, the user can place the device on the ground and escape.

HOW CAN THE M-26C Taser BE SO EFFECTIVE YET NON-INJURIOUS? The M-26C Taser does not depend upon impact or body penetration to achieve its effect. Its pulsating electrical output interferes with communication between the brain and the muscular system, resulting in loss of control. However, the M-26C Taser is nondestructive to nerves, muscles and other body elements. It simply affects them in their natural mode. More importantly, no deaths have ever been directly attributed to the TASER .

WHAT HAS TESTING REVEALED REGARDING THE M-26C Taser? Anesthesiologist and specialist in medical electronics, Dr. Frank Summers, MD of St. Joseph’s Hospital, Orange, California, directed tests of volunteers at St. Joseph’s in 1971 and 1974. Dr. Summers stated, “…We undertook this [volunteer test] in the operating rooms at St. Joseph’s Hospital. We had an assembly of cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologists… we had a real [TASER]. We tested extensively and made movies. The tests were impressive. We monitored all parameters of physiology, including electrocardiographs. The tests did not produce any lethal effects and we found that the background work that had been done did indeed pan out in practice.”

DOES THE TASER AFFECT THE HEART OR A CARDIAC PACEMAKER? The M-26C Taser’s output is well below the level established as “safe” by the federal government in approving such devices as the electrified cattle fence. In a medical study of the Model XR 5000Ô electronic stun gun, Dr. Robert Stratbucker of the University of Nebraska Medical Center confirmed that the T-Wave does not interrupt the heartbeat or damage a pacemaker. Any modern pacemaker is designed to withstand electrical defibrillator pulses that are hundreds of times stronger than the M-26C Taser’s output. The M-26C Taser current of 0.3 joules is well below the 10-50 joule threshold above which cardiac ventricular fibrillation can occur.

ISN’T HIGH VOLTAGE LETHAL? High voltage, in itself, is not dangerous. One can receive a 25,000-volt shock of static electricity from a doorknob on a dry day without harm. The physiological effect of electrical shock is determined by: the current, its duration, and the power source that produces the shock. The typical household current of 110 volts is dangerous because it can pump many amperes of current throughout the body indefinitely. By contrast, the M-26C Taser power supply consists of 8 AA batteries that are capable of supplying less than three watts of electrical power for a few minutes.

WILL THE TASER CAUSE ELECTROCUTION? No. The output is metered by the electronics and the electrical energy in each pulse is always the same, regardless of the target condition. The electrical output will not be transferred from one person to another even if they touch. M-26C Taser, Inc.’s president has been stunned by an M-26C Taser while standing in water to emphasize this point.

WHAT ARE THE AFTER EFFECTS? A person hit with an M-26C Taser will feel dazed for several minutes. The pulsating electrical output causes involuntary muscle contractions and a resulting sense of vertigo. It can momentarily stun or render an attacker unconscious. Yet, the M-26C Taser’s low electrical amperage and short duration of pulsating current, ensures a non-lethal charge. Moreover, it does not cause permanent damage or long-term aftereffects to muscles, nerves or other body functions. A January 1987 Annals of Emergency Medicine study reported TASER technology leaves no long term injuries compared with 50% long term injuries for gun shot injuries.

MUST THE PROBES PENETRATE THE BODY TO BE EFFECTIVE? No. The electrical current will “jump” up to two inches as long as both probes are attached to clothing or skin. At most, only the 3/8-inch needlepoint will penetrate the skin. They have less energy than a spring propelled BB.

WHAT IF THE PROBES MISS? The M-26C Taser can be used in a touch-stun mode. The user is thus provided with a final backup if the probes miss the target. Should the user miss or engage a second attacker, he can touch the unit directly to the target and it will work like a powerful touch-stun device.

WHAT IS THE BEST-SHOT AT MAXIMUM RANGE? As long as the spread of the probes is at least six inches, the M-26C Taser will be extremely effective. To ensure that the spread is greater than six inches, the M-26C Taser should be fired at a target several feet away. The optimum shot is from seven to ten feet away form the target to achieve maximum effect. At seven to ten feet away – the spread of the probes will be approximately 16 inches, ensuring that the target receives the most efficient T-Wave flow.

DOES TEMPERATURE HAVE A DETRIMENTAL EFFECT ON THE M-26C Taser? No. The M-26C Taser utilizes compressed nitrogen (an inert gas). The M-26C Taser compressed air capsules have successfully held their charges at temperatures of minus 20º F and up to 160º F. Moreover, altitude will not adversely effect the firing of an M-26C Taser. In addition, the temperature will not effect the T-Wave. However, as with any product containing poly carbonates and other thermoplastics, the M-26C Taser and Air Cartridges should never be left in direct sunlight.

So there you have it the M-26C Taser extremely safe and should be considered the non-lethal self defense weapon of choice for anyone concerned about personal safety.

Party Safety Tips

Share

It only takes a few seconds for everything to change. No matter who you are, drugs and alcohol can affect your ability to make decisions (such as identifying danger signs and plotting escape routes). Party smarter with these safety tips.

Always get your own drink. Watch it being poured. Don’t leave your drink unattended. Don’t drink or taste anybody else’s drink. Don’t accept drinks from anyone else. Dispose of your drink if you think it tastes odd. (If you just leave it, someone else may drink it).

Drugs used to “spike” drinks can be colorless and tasteless so you might not realize that anything has been added.

Be aware of the behavior of your friends. Is their behavior out of character? Do they seem too “out of it” for what they’ve had?

Watch out for your friends. Are they drinking or taking too much? Are they making safe decisions? Are they OK?

If your friend needs to sober up or straighten out, check to see that they are OK. Are they alone? Who is with them? Are they safe?

Encourage people who are drunk to drink water or eat something. Keep an eye on them, if you can.

Do you really trust whom you are going home with? Are you sure they won’t make you do anything you don’t want to do? Will they take “NO” for an answer? If you are going home with someone different, let someone know. Introduce them to your friends.

If You’re Throwing The Party….

Know whom you have invited to the party and plan what you will do if there are gatecrashers.

Provide food and non-alcoholic drink spacers, for example: water, soft drinks or juice.

Keep a look out for your guests. Make sure they’re safe and having a good time.

Offer to organize taxis for your guests. Take a note of the taxi company you have called.

Create a safe atmosphere. If you know that someone is harassing or intimidating someone else, then do something about it:

Let them know you are watching; Ask the person to stop; Ask them to leave; Find the victimized person a safe place; Don’t be afraid to call the police.

Remember to stay safe yourself and ask for help if you need it!

Expandable Batons Becoming Self Defense Weapon Of Choice

Share

What is the best self defense weapon on the market today? Well that’s a ”loaded question”. Pepper spray, Mace, tasers and stun guns all come to mind and for good reason. One product that is often overlooked but are quickly becoming the self defense weapon of choice for law enforcement officers nationwide is the expandable steel baton.

Expandable Police Baton

These batons have replaced the old “billy club” because they are much more convenient to carry, easy to use, extremely effective, durable, and affordable. With crime on the rise in many areas, personal safety is something for all of us to consider and the expandable baton is worth looking into.

Experts encourage you to display the baton openly. Often, just the presence of this weapon deters an assailant. Holsters are available that attach to your belt so the baton is in clear view of any would-be attackers. Since criminals usually look for easy targets, simply displaying a baton may help avoid an attack in the first place.

To use an expandable baton, grasp the baton firmly in your hand and quickly flick your wrist. This will open the baton. You want to maintain a secure, but not tight, hold of the baton. Since fluidity of motion is required to strike effectively, a grip that is too firm will cause tightness in your wrist and arm, decreasing your ability to strike quickly and smoothly.

Create a distance of a few feet between you and your assailant, if at all possible. In order for your strikes to be effective, make room to maneuver. Take a step back or to the side to create the distance needed.
Target your attacker’s weapon to disarm him. Then, aim for the bony areas of the body, including the head, knees, collarbone, ribs, elbows or wrists. This is much more effective than striking areas of muscle. While muscle strikes will hurt, they are not nearly as debilitating as a strike to a bony area.

Block your attacker’s blows, and aim at disabling him, if possible. Stop him long enough to get away and get help. Put your whole body into the strike. Using only your arm for leverage is not nearly as effective as a strike that has the force of your body behind it.

Close your baton by holding it perpendicular to the ground, and strike the tip firmly onto the ground. This will start the retraction process. Continue to tap the ground until all the sections of the baton have retracted, and the baton is in its closed form.

Stay Safe In Your Apartment

Share

Do you think you, your roommate/family, and your belongings are safe in your apartment? Are you sure? Do you know what you should be looking for when you look for an apartment or analyze your home security?

  • Get to know both your neighbors and the neighborhood. Be aware of what’s happening in the area, especially if any of your neighbors have been victims of burglary
  • Make sure there is adequate lighting in all exterior areas of the complex. If you believe there is an area that needs more light, notify the landlord, and ask neighbors to do the same. Your landlord is required by law to provide you with a safe environment. Also notify the maintenance office immediately if you notice burnt out bulbs in any lights in exterior or common areas.
  • Make sure your door has a dead bolt in addition to any knob lock. Don’t rely on either locks in knobs or on chains. Your door should also have a peephole (if you have children, consider getting one at their height, too). You can ask the landlord to replace or re-key your dead bolt and install a peephole. If he won’t do it, see about doing it at your own expense (don’t forget to give a key to the landlord if you are required to under the lease).
  • If you have a security system in the building — use it. Don’t ever buzz strangers into the building or allow strangers to enter the building when you are either entering or leaving.
  • Be careful when using laundry or other common facilities after dark. Consider doing laundry, swimming, working out, etc. with a buddy. If these facilities have locking doors, make sure they are locked, and don’t let anyone in who doesn’t have a key.
  • Make sure any windows accessible from the ground, balconies, or fire escapes have stops to prevent them opening enough to let a person through. A long screw in the frame is enough to stop a window from opening more than a couple of inches while still allowing ventilation.
  • If you have a sliding glass door, use a door brace of some sort in the track to keep the door from opening more than a few inches. You should also install screws in the frame to prevent the entire door from being removed.
  • Make sure you have adequate smoke detectors, especially outside the kitchen and bedrooms. Check your detectors regularly and replace batteries at least twice a year. Make sure any necessary carbon monoxide or natural gas detectors are also working and maintained.
  • Purchase fire extinguishers. There should be one accessible from the bedrooms, and one in the kitchen. Ideally the extinguishers should be rated ABC (for all three major types of fire) — the extinguisher in the kitchen should have a definite B rating (for grease and other flammable liquids).
  • Know all routes of escape from your apartment in case of fire. Inexpensive collapsible ladders by bedroom windows will ensure escape should a fire block other exits. Make sure your entire room/family can exit directly from your apartment to the outdoors, and practice.
  • Don’t advertise your absence by leaving notes for maintenance personnel, children, neighbors, etc., on your door or mailbox.
  • Single women should never have their full names listed in the phone book or posted on buzzers or mailboxes. Try to get your neighbors to all agree to use initials on buzzers and mailboxes. If you live alone, try putting two initials on the buzzer.
  • Don’t hide a spare keys outside “under the mat”. If you want, find a neighbor you trust and make a deal to keep each other’s spare keys. Having to pay a locksmith to get you in is still cheaper than losing your valuables when a thief finds the key.
  • Don’t have your entire address listed in the phone book — list only your street name or just the town or city. Reverse listings can allow thieves to find your phone number and name from your address.
  • Get renters insurance. If anything were to happen, you’d at least be able to replace your belongings.
  • Keep an inventory of your valuables. Photographs of expensive jewelry and serial numbers of all electronic and computer equipment should be kept in a fireproof safe or safe deposit box. Etching your driver’s license number on your electronics can identify them in the case of theft (many police departments offer this etching as a free service).
  • Talk to your local police department about having a security check — many will do them for free.
  • Consider starting a neighborhood watch program in your complex or community.
  • If you are really concerned, there are a number of wireless home security systems perfect for apartment dwellers.

Michigan Self Defense Spray Legislation

Share

A bill increasing the amount of chemicals which can be used in self-defense spray or foam devices was signed into law last week by then-Gov. Granholm.

“Michigan residents will now have access to a greater variety of self-defense products that are not lethal and easy to purchase to protect themselves and their property,” said Rep. Hugh Crawford (R-Novi) who introduced the legislation in the state House. “Allowing a higher concentration of this chemical in pepper spray devices makes these products safer for users, and gives a person more options instead of using physical force for protection.”

Crawford’s legislation, House Bill 6053, increased the amount of the chemical oleoresin capsicum allowed in self-defense, or “pepper spray” devices from two percent to 10 percent.

PROTECTING CHILDREN & TEENS – SAFETY TIPS FOR PARENTS

Share

It is very important to approach the subject of safety in a non-threatening way. We do not want to make children fearful of potentially dangerous situations or people in general, but we do want to teach them to be cautious and to be able to recognize when something may be wrong.

The key is to help children feel empowered and to encourage them to develop and trust their intuition. We want to teach them to be able to talk to you, their caregiver, when something is bothering them. Open communication between parents and children is one of the most important aspects to protecting your child from predators.

  • THE KEY IS COMMUNICATION: It is important to talk openly with your children about all safety issues, including what to do in a potential abduction situation.
  • KNOWLEDGE IS POWER: Talk to your children about the rules pertaining to strangers. Let them know a stranger or predator looks just like any other person and will use any number of ways to lure a child. Remember, the vast number of children who are victimized know their assailants.
  • COMMON PREDATOR LURES: Pretending to look for a lost pet; asking the child for directions; giving or promising candy and/or money if the child will go to their car; and, threatening to hurt family members if the child does not comply. It’s time for your child to run!
  • Never label clothing, backpacks, or other personal items with your child’s name. A predator will use this information to try to gain your child’s trust. (Place the label inside the object and/or use the child’s initials or some design for easy identification.
  • Give your children instructions on what to do if they get separated from you in a mall, supermarket or any other public place. Tell them to first find a mother with children or any woman and let them know they are lost. Also they can go to a check-out counter, information desk, or approach a police officer.
  • Make sure that your child knows his or her full name, address, and phone number and the phone number for the place where you work or how to contact you. They also need to know how to dial 911, make collect calls, and dial the operator on a pay phone.
  • Know where your children are at all times, and keep a list of their friend’s names, addresses and phone numbers and remember to update your children’s records including a photo every 6-12 months. Be aware of overnight parties unless you personally know and trust the teens and adults living and having access to that home.
  • Trust your own instincts – if you don’t feel good about a person, keep your child away from that person.
  • PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE: Going over this information once with your children is not enough! You need to continue to rehearse and “role play” to make the learning permanent so your child can react properly when under pressure.
  • IF YOUR CHILD IS MISSING: Try not to panic. First check everywhere in the house, then check with your neighbors and your child’s friends. If you still cannot locate them, call the police immediately. REMEMBER: There is no waiting period required to report a missing child to the police.

Essential Child Safety Tips

Share
  1. Do not get into any car unless your parents personally tell you to. Also, stay away from anyone who follows you on foot or in a car. You do not need and should not go near a car to talk to the people inside.
  2. Adults and other people who need help should not be asking a child for help; they should be asking other adults. Adults should not be asking you for directions or to look for a “lost puppy” or telling you that your mother or father is in trouble and that they will take you to them.
  3. Quickly get away from anyone who tries to take you somewhere. Yell or scream, “This person is not my father (or mother).”
  4. You should use the “buddy system” and never go places alone. Always ask your parents’ permission to leave the yard/play area or to go over to someone’s home and especially always ask permission before you go into someone’s home.
  5. Never, never hitchhike! Do not try to get a ride with people unless your parents have told you it’s okay to do so.
  6. People should not ask you to keep a special secret. If they do, tell your parents or teacher. Also, tell anyone who wants to take your picture, “No,” and quickly tell your parents or teacher.
  7. No one should touch you on the parts of the body covered by your bathing suit, nor should you touch anyone else in those areas. Your body is special and private.
  8. You can be assertive and you have the right to say “No” to someone, including adults and even relatives or friends who try to take you somewhere against your will, touch you, or who makes you feel uncomfortable in ANY WAY .
  9. NOTE : Many parents use a special code word that only the child knows to convey a message should someone other than a parent ask a child to accompany them anywhere.

  10. THE YELL : Practice a “Special” yell. It is low, loud and long. It tells the person trying to hurt the child, “I know what to do! I’m not an easy victim!” It tells everyone within the sound of the child’s voice, “I need help!” It gets the child going, it breaks the “spell.” A child should not panic and freeze, thereby becoming immobile in an emergency. When you yell you take a deep breath, thereby getting oxygen and energy to your brain and muscles. Your own yell can give you courage and get your feet moving when you need to run away!

Woman assaulted while jogging by Bergfeld Park

Share

TYLER, TX (KLTV) – An East Texas woman says she runs prepared, with pepper spray and an air horn. But, she says it was not enough to fend off an attacker. Early Monday morning, around 5 A.M., the woman says she was jogging by Bergfeld Park in Tyler, when she was attacked. According to the victim, the suspect hid himself by a wooded area, and then as she jogged by, he attacked her from behind.

The woman told police, that the suspect grabbed and forced the her to the ground, where he began to touch her inappropriately. With the air horn and pepper spray, the woman managed to flee the scene and contact the Tyler police soon after.

While investigating the case, Tyler Police offered a few suggestions for joggers, especially if you are female.

First, try to run with someone, and if your schedule doesn’t allow that, always let someone know when and where you are going.

Second, always fight for your life.

Officer Don Martin says, “We definitely recommend that you do whatever it takes to get away from the person. Today, you don’t know how far they’re going to take it, so you need to fight for your life.”

Personal Defense Products That Everyone Should Have For Street Protection

Share

Employed on the night shift in a hospital is intense work. Not only am I worn out from the long hours and the difficult people but I’m also forced to start working at a dangerous hour. It had been after I discovered a colleague’s run-in with burglars that I decided to obtain personal defence products for myself.

Evidently, a fellow night-shift nurse was going to the hospital one night to report for working and has been cornered by a number of muggers. She was commanded to surrender all her cash and any jewelry that she had with her.

It was scary to listen to her story because I take the exact same way to my job at night a lot of the time. We’d even met one another en route towards the hospital on some occasions. I was eager to discover personal protection products for street protection after knowing what happened.

Searching online for personal protection goods was fairly easy. I found many different kinds of street safety gadgets that I actually had a tougher time deciding which one I wanted than finding the goods during the first place. I had refined it down to either a pepper spray or a stun gun.

They were comparable in that they happen to be both non-lethal tools created to distract or immobilize an adversary, thus, providing me ample time to escape. A Keychain Pepper Spray was some thing that I was eying since it successfully shuts the assailant’s eyes, causing temporary blindness as well as breathing problems, choking and wheezing.

As for a stun gun, I was looking at the Cell phone Stun Gun as an option. The one that I preferred discharges 4.5 million volts of electrical energy from the little four inch body. I get the benefit of stealth since it convincingly appears like a normal mobile phone. The opponent would be convulsing and unable to control his muscles before realizing that I had used a stun gun on him.

Before I was able to choose, I stumbled upon a Safety Kit for Women. It was a package of the important street protection tools that any lady would require. It is complete with a pepper spray, diversion safe and personal alarm plus special safety reviews and an instruction manual. Rather than buying what I required separately, right here they were in one convenient location. They were much more inexpensive as one set as well and provided confidence that everything I really could ever need was already in that package.

With my collection of personal defense products, I’m more assured and safe in leaving the house for work. I can now ensure my personal safety wherever I am.
