Hi all. I received this email about a year ago, but I deleted it, and luckily I received it again today.
Since none of us is Lara Croft, when it comes to REAL danger, I have some tips. (The email is in spanish, so I'll do my best to translate accurately).

Some rapists, and thieves were interviewed, as well as some security experts, and here is what they said:

1.First thing an attacker notices is the hair due. If the girl has a pony tail, or a braid, they find it easier to grab, women with short hair are unlikely to be attacked.

2. Then they see the clothing, easy things to rip, in some cases, they use scissors to cut light fabrics.

3.They search for women who are distracted on the streets, like talking on the cell phone, listening to a walkman, etc., this way, the surprise element is more effective.

4.Attacks are more frequent between 5 and 8:30 am.

5. The number one place where attacks occur are the supermarkets parking spaces, second place, work parking spaces, third place, public restrooms. These men take women to hidden places quickly.

6. Only a 2% said they carry a weapon, since the sentences are way more severe if they commit sexual assault with a weapon.

7. They stay away from women who carry objects like long umbrellas. The thing is that if a woman can mantain a distance, the probability to become a target is low.

8. Security experts say that a woman must follow her instinct. If you feel you are being followed, you must not worry if you will look stupid, since is better to feel stupid, than being really attacked.

These are just some hints to be a little more safe, the less you become a potential target, the better we will be.

Kisses,
Onyx

Just another input:

Don't freeze. Think quick. The best plan of attack should come to you within seconds. Know where the attackers openings are, and let em have it! Just remember, disable, and escape.

Thanks T. Onyx and Catapharact. ****, I have long hair. And remember ladies: if you are wearing heels and think you are being followed, take them off. You can run faster and a stilleto to the eye will take them out. Anyone ever seen Single, white, female? Don't forget to SING too. I actually used the SING* method once, that dude went DOWN.

*Note: for those of you who arent movie junkies like me: S-stomach I-instep N-nose G-groin. Sing. This usually works better if you are grabbed from behind.

wow, the things you learn from sicko's...female i may not be but pass this info on to my girl i will (although i know i'll get a lecture about how she can defend herelf, but its for her own safety)
and ladies, while were on the subject, remember, stay in places where its brightly lit and where people can see you (drivers etc) don't go down dark allyways, even if it does cut out 10 mins walking distance on your way home etc (even i follow this rule, better safe than sorry)
And i pray to god that all you girls will stay safe and never be in a situation where you would need to dispatch an attacker! its a dangerous world out there, please be carefull

I'm lucky that I have a short pony tail and since today is rainy I'll take the umbrella :D

Thanks for warning us T.Onyx!

awww, that's nice of you Genocide

another tip: if you're near a car even though it might sound stupid, run around it and keep him on the other side, use this time to try and call for help. If he jumps over the car or something dive underneath and grab onto something under the car...it will be a lot more difficult for him drag you off.

yet another tip: go for the eyes, use your long fingernails!

What a sorry state of affairs when this sort of advice has to be given eh?

Good advice it is too http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

I'd add...

Take some form of self defence classes. Take your kids along to the classes as well, as kids seem to be targets too nowadays.
If attacked, be loud! Very loud!
Be aware of your surroundings.
Be aware of your body language. Look confident and alert.
Invest in a personal alarm if it helps you feel safer.
If you are attacked, report the incident even if you managed to escape unharmed. You could save someone else by doing so.

Stay safe, stay happy http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

What a world we live in. I got attacked once but luckily I got away. SING to the rescue! lol *sighs* You never know about people these days. When I was walking home from school, and this was only about a year ago, I had to walk past this tree grove. I actually was listening to a cd player and not paying attention, so... taught me a lesson. Next thing I know someone grabbed my hair and pulled me into the trees. Lucky for me, SING actually works. If it didn't I might be here. As a rule now I don't take shortcuts or listen to music while I walk. I ran faster than I had ever run before. Thank God my neihbor drove by and asked me what happened. I got a ride with her. My house was still a good half mile away. *shivers*

whack em' in the stomache, stand on there foot, nut em' in the schnozz then smack em' in the knackers...then the most sane thing to do would be to run away and scream at the top of your lungs and hope someone hears you, and try and get somewhere safe whilst doing so

Thanks guys. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif They never caught him. I didn't scream, I just ran. Just last year my neihbor got arrested for sexual crimes and murder. He's doing a life sentence. This really creeped me out cause I had been in his house before. You never know who it's gonna be. What a world. :(

:mad: Rapist or thieves deserve a hard reaction!

I am a man,but i feel extremely hard against them!

DONT FORGET!

1]panic is a bad advisor,be cool and kick to the wick point of a man,between his legs,or scratch him straight to his eyes!

2]a hair spray or why not for more result A "bug" spray to his eyes [for excellent results],is the best weapon!
Punisment and safety in the same time!

Don't take this the wrong way, but that does not sound right! I understand what you mean though!

i mean nothing wrong by it, and i know that NO-ONE is perfect when it comes to the English language, but considering the subject at hand it does seem like a rather obscure statement if not read correctly

@Smith: worked for me. I think I mainly surprised him more than anything until I got to the G step. That put him down.
