In these dangerous times, always be aware of your surroundings and never leave your home defenseless against an attacker. Steel batons are effective self defense weapons when forced to defend against an attacker at close range. Steel batons extend to either 16, 21 or 26 inches with just a flick of the wrist. If your looking for a close range self defense weapon with extra reach, the steel baton is for you. If using public transportation, there are times when you must walk through sketchy areas of a neighborhood just to get to the metro stop. Even if you drive to the parking area for the metrolink or metro train in your city, the parking garage or parking lot is often poorly lit and may be a long distance to the main platform where the guard and security cameras are located. In my urban community of St. Louis, MO, female college students have been attacked and sexually assaulted both on and off campus. Our urban colleges and universities are doing what they can to educate both students and faculty about the precautions that must be taken to ensure their personal safety. Recently both SLU and Washington University of St Louis have reported issues of sexual crimes against its students. Often the attacks are off-campus at a university apartment location and the victim was walking back to her apartment late at night. Again, always be aware of your surroundings and use common sense. If you must walk to commute to and from school, find a friend to walk with you and avoid doing so late at night. Also, if you must walk alone. Remove your ear buds to your iPod and don’t text on the phone as you walk. These are distractions that make you and easy target for a surprise attack, rape or abduction that’ll cost you your life. Finally, it’s a good idea to carry a key chain Wildfire pepper spray as additional back against an attacker and actually provides greater distance between you and the thug looking to victimize you.
Crime Is Real, Don’t Be a Victim!
