You are walking down the street, when all of a sudden, two hoodlums run up to you and snatch your purse and one of them punches you in the eye. You scream.
That is a bad way to handle such a tragic incident. Never scream when you are being attacked. It will only make the attacker even more violent.
Some people have no choice. They have to walk into bad neighborhoods to go to work or see family members.
Here are some guidelines on what to do if you walk through a bad neighborhood.
Always carry a can of mace. This way you will have protection from the bad guys. Spray it straight in the eyes of your attacker.
Don't carry a purse and try to be discreet with your wallet. If somebody mugs you, give them your wallet and don't say a word.
If somebody follows you, ignore them. Just keep on going where you are going. Don't run or scream.
If the person attacks you, spray them with mace.
If people throws things at you, let it be rocks or bottles, sit down on the ground and put your hands behind your head. This way, you won't get hit in the face. Or you can go under a car.
If somebody yells, "Hey who are you?" State your name. If that person gives you a hard time, spray them with mace.
If you smoke and somebody asks for a cigarette, give them one. If somebody asks you for money, ditto. If you don't, that person may attack you.
If a bunch of people try to attack you, go crazy with the mace and try to spray as many people that you can.
If somebody grabs you and has you in a lock, spin around really fast and spray that person with mace.
Walk like you know where you are going. If you go meekly or if you are scared, the bad guys will take advantage of you.
If there is a shooting going on, run in a zig zag way and get the heck out of that neighborhood until the shooting is all done.
If you take my advice you will be safe and sound.
