It is easy to take the “I know bad things happen, but not around here” approach to personal safety until something happens close to home. A convenience store in McKinney, Texas was robbed the end of December, 2018. Local residents are in shock, and want to know what they can do to protect themselves. The security footage shows a man entering the store, holding the clerk at gun point, taking the money and exiting the store.
However, to a trained eye, the footage also shows about fifteen seconds of pre-attack indicators from the suspect leading up to the actual robbery. Training your mind to recognize pre-attack indicators and body language is your first defense and paramount to personal safety. Missed indicators can take you from a “this doesn’t look good, let’s leave,” to an undesirable situation quickly.
Many criminals are looking for an easy target. There are proactive, practical tactics you can incorporate into your daily life to safeguard yourself. Becoming a Hard Target discusses the criminal mind, body language, proactive situational awareness, personal safety, Verbal Judo, social media and different types of predators.
