Sexual Assaults On College Campuses

Share

One week ago today Pres. Obama signed a memorandum creating a task force to combat sexual assaults on the nation’s college campuses. He gave the task force 90 days to draw some recommendations on how to deal with sexual assaults on college campuses-both on how to prevent them and how people respond to them-specifically law enforcement and University officials.

The White House released a report that shows that many female college student face this problem. Some of these staggering statistics are:

1. One in five women have been assaulted in college.

2. 12% of those victims report that they were sexually assaulted.

3. 22 million American women have been raped in her lifetime.

4. 98% of perpetrators are male.

5. Almost all of the perpetrators are known to the victim-mostly because they are classmates.

“One of the major points of the report shows that the judicial response to sexual assaults has been inadequate, noting the lack of prosecutions and convictions. The report also notes that victims of sexual assault could suffer from depression or other physical ailments because of the abuse.”

Students from several major universities have filed complaints under title IX and the Clery Act.

We have been writing about this issue for years and feel it’s about time somebody high on the food chain took notice. The White House is calling for a culture shift on sexual assaults on college campuses. We wish them luck.

The best way to defend yourself against the sexual assault on campus or anywhere for that matter is with a self-defense product such as a pepper spray or stun gun. We specifically recommend a product that’s on a keychain because that way it’s more likely to be with you wherever you go.

We always recommend that women carry a self-defense product like this Fox Labs Hard Case Keychain that has 5.3 million Scoville heat units and fires a heavy stream pattern up to 10 feet away. It’s taser/ECD compatible too.

Crime Avoiding Tips -Safety Tip Of The Week

Share

Recently I attended a class on personal safety given by our local Police Department in conjunction with neighborhood watch. Neighborhood Watch is more than just about home security, it’s about crime. If you don’t have one in your neighborhood, you should get one going. It’s an invaluable resource. It is free and easy.

These tips came from that class.

Crime happens everywhere on the streets, at home and at work. So these tips are general in nature and are meant to help you raise your awareness.

Be alert and be aware of your surroundings at all times. The bad guys use distractions to their advantage.

When you walk, walk with a sense of confidence with your head held high.

Vary your routines and your routes. Predictability makes you a more likely target.
60% of all home burglaries happen through unlocked doors and windows. So start locking your doors and windows at home and in your car.

You can avoid car theft by locking your doors and use an ant-theft device if you have one. Remove temptation but putting packages in the trunk and park in a well-lit place.

Be informed of what’s going on in your neighborhood. One of the best ways to do that is get involved with a neighborhood watch program.

Carry some self-defense products such as a one of our big selection of Pepper Sprays with you at all times.

Follow these tips and you may avoid becoming a statistic.

Home Invasion Scam-What To Watch Out For

This is a story out of Colorado Springs, Colorado, where local TV station KOAA did a story about people roaming around neighborhoods dressed as security guards, Comcast repairmen and even utility workers.

They do so to perpetrate a scam on homeowners and gain entry into their homes. The idea has been around for a long time but it seems to be gaining in popularity, especially with senior citizens who are more naïve.

You can read the rest of the story

What To Watch Out For

I learned this in a neighborhood watch meeting but I’ve heard it before. Never, never let anybody into your house unless you know who they are and why they are there. Just because someone is wearing a Comcast label on his shirt, doesn’t necessarily mean he works for Comcast. A man dressed as a security guard may be nothing more than a common criminal trying to rip you off.

Always ask for identification. If there is any doubt, call the company and asked for verification. Be especially suspicious of people who show up unannounced without an appointment.

“The deans are out of their depth, dodging an open discussion of what has become a national scourge by assigning the task of disciplining rapists to student conduct boards.

Victims complained that rapists walked away with only wrist slaps. The accused protested that secret hearings violated their rights to due process. No one thought that college disciplinary proceedings were up to the task.”

“Sexual assault is a crime, not an infraction of the college handbook; squeamish administrators need to acknowledge as much if the accused is to have a shot at due process and the accuser a hope of justice.”

Team To Fight Home Burglaries

This is a story of home burglaries in Cerritos California. Burglaries in that city were up 60% from 2011 compared 2012.

Part of the story said “We are very high visibility now and are using some technology and some other tactics that have already proven to be successful,” Swensson said. “Our burglaries have almost shut down to zero since we started this team.”

That is quite an accomplishment!!

More than likely you cannot get your own police department to cut down on home burglaries in your area but you can get some Home Burglar Alarms that act as an effective deterrent if somebody should break you to your home.

Another idea is to install some Fake Security Cameras at your house. Nothing says stay away from my property better than a security camera and no one can tell a fake one from the real thing.

$60K In Cash And Jewelry Stolen-How To Protect Yours

Share

Police arrested two suspects in the Monroe, Connecticut area after a series of burglaries has been going on for close to two months. The two were caught after someone identified a vehicle that was used in one of the burglaries. Police later saw that car and put it under surveillance along with the occupants.

You can read the whole story HERE.

This isn’t exactly a secret but burglars steal items out of homes or apartments that are easy to carry and can be easily converted into cash. Jewelry and hand guns are at the top of the list right behind cash of course.

These two guys stole over $60,000 worth of cash and jewelry in the space of two months. That’s not bad work! That’s part of the reason why home burglary is such a lucrative business.

Fact of the matter is that burglars spend less than 10 minutes inside a home looking for things of value him like cash, jewelry and hand guns. If you can hide those items so that they are not found for say 10 or 15 minutes, chances are the bad guys will leave empty-handed.

One of the best ways to hide cash, credit cards and jewelry is with a Diversion Safe. They are common household objects that people are used to seeing everyday, BUT they have hollowed out insides to hide valuables in “plain sight.”

The Dog Food Safe is an example of a diversion safe you can use to protect your valuables.
