Atlanta Woman Uses Stun Gun To Help Officer In Distress

I read this story on Sunday about a woman who saw a policeman struggling with an attacker and grabbed her stun gun and went to his aid.

Tanisha Cross never thought the stun gun she received for Christmas would come in handy so soon.

Cross said she was headed to Wal-Mart in Lithonia with her mother when she noticed a DeKalb County police officer being attacked by a suspect.

“I just told my mom pull over, … let’s try to help,” said Cross.

The 20-year-old mother, who received the stun gun as a gift from her husband, said she kept it in a diaper bag.

Cross said while others gathered to watch, she sprung into action.

“I went straight for my kid’s diaper bag and I got it and asked it if he [officer] wanted me to do it and he said, ‘Yea,’” said Cross.

Cross said the officer had a hard time defending himself because the attacker had taken the officer’s radio and managed to rub pepper spray in the officer’s face and eyes.

Jolting the attacker, Cross’ timing couldn’t have been better. Cross said she stunned the suspect in his arms and legs.

Cross said she stunned the attacker to where the officer regained his composure and fought back until a security guard came to their aid.

“He’s brave,” she said. “He did his best to keep him from his gun. He handled the situation very well. I was just glad I could help him,” said Cross.

Cross doesn’t consider herself a hero.

“I’m just a bystander trying to help do the right thing,” said Cross.

Shopper stops robbery suspect with pepper spray

Here’s a heart warming story that took place in Jacksonville, Florida. This took place after a robber tried snatching a 77-year-old woman’s purse at a Kangaroo Express.

A “one-man crime spree” was halted by a 77-year-old woman with a can of pepper spray, Jacksonville police said Wednesday.

Torre Sebastian Harris, 20, was arrested Tuesday about 5:30 p.m. shortly after a robbery at a Kangaroo Express store in the 8300 block of Baymeadows Road. Chief David Stevens of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said a man entered the store, pointed a gun in the clerk’s face and demanded money.

The contents of the cash register didn’t satisfy him, so he tried to snatch a customer’s purse, according to a police report. The victim, Gladys Gehrig, fought back and sprayed the thief with a container of pepper spray attached to her key chain.

“She got him good in the face,” Stevens said.

Police picked Harris up a short distance away.

Stevens said he was linked to six other robberies throughout January on the city’s Southside by witness identifications and surveillance footage.

Harris was charged with 14 felonies and held in lieu of bail.

Self Defense Products – College Safety Products

As more and more instances of campus violence are reported on the news, college students and their parents are beginning to be concerned about campus safety, and with good reason. Unfortunately, colleges and universities are no longer just a haven for those pursuing an education. They are quickly becoming a haven for criminals as well. There are several products on the market today that college students can use, however, to protect themselves from dangerous individuals and make their campus homes as safe as possible. Whether you are a student yourself or are the parent of a student, take some time to consider the different college safety products on the market today, and what they can do to protect you or those you love.

 

One popular safety product used by many college students is a dual function door brace. A dual function door brace will enhance the current lock on your dorm or apartment door. Once you and your roommates are in for the night, you can place the dual function door brace against the door, and it will provide added protection against a potential intruder. These products are collapsible, so you can easily take them with you when you travel. A dual function door brace can be used on both hinged and sliding doors. They are made out of strong, 20-guage steel to add protection. When you are ready to go out in the morning, simply remove the brace, store it, and open the door.
doorbrace

801122Another essential college safety product that all college students, particularly women, should have is pepper spray. Pepper spray is a product that you carry with you in your purse, pocket, or on your key ring. If you are attacked, all you have to do is spray the pepper spray into the eyes of your attacker. It will cause the attacker’s eyes to slam shut and begin watering profusely. Pepper spray is amazingly irritating, and it typically causes the attacker to become disoriented long enough for you to escape.

 

 

lipsticksIf you do not want to carry a large pepper spray container with you to and from school, consider buying a lipstick pepper spray container. These containers look just like a lipstick tube, but they actually contain pepper spray. You can put them in your purse and have them on hand any time you need some extra protection. If you are afraid that you will forget to carry it or will not be able to reach it during an attack, consider purchasing a pepper spray ring, which you can always wear to be safe in the event of an attack.

 

 

alarmclockdvrIf you are concerned that someone near you, like a roommate, is taking your things or putting you in a dangerous situation, consider investing in a DVR Hidden Camera

Hidden cameras have never been so easy to use. With other hidden cameras you need to hook them up to a VCR or DVD recorder to record what the camera sees. With the hidden cameras below, there is a built in DVR that records to a handy SD card. 

You literally put the hidden camera where you want it, plug it in, point in the direction you want to film and press record on the included remote control.  Doesn’t get any easier.
You can either hook the camera up to a TV or computer monitor with the included RCA cable or remove the SD card and insert into the SD card reader on your computer or an external SD card reader you can order with your hidden camera. If you live in an apartment, you can also install outdoor wireless cameras near your front door. This will allow you to see anyone who wants to enter your home before you let them in. you and your roommates can screen the people who want to visit and avoid any dangerous situations.

Remember, whenever you leave your dorm or apartment, always lock the doors. Do not carry large quantities of money in your wallet. If you must carry a lot of cash, put it in a concealed pocket. Always look up when walking on campus, so if you are attacked, you will know what your attacker looks like. These tips will help keep you as safe as possible while you are pursuing your degree. 

2009 – The Year Of Change

2009 Starts The Beginning Of Change

2009 is going to be a year that many will talk about for a long time to come.  CHANGE, like it or not, has arrived.  We have a new President (Barack Obama – our first black President in history).  Our country has cried out for change and President Obama is going to have his hands full attempting to lead this change.  Our economy has tanked and tens of thousands of hard working Americans have already lost or will lose their jobs.  This has resulted in unheard of numbers of home foreclosures and steadily falling home values.  Savings have plummeted and our lives will be altered for a long time. 

There is one area that will continue to be on the minds of everyone – the safety of the ones they love and protecting what belongs to them.  In the times that we are experiencing today, you should expect to see a rise in crime.  There will be an  increase in violent crimes and home burglaries.  Think about the loved ones you send off to college.  Have you planned for their safety?  You can CHANGE what the outcome will be.  As a criminal makes his plans, you must make your PLAN for your own self defense and the ones you love.  Careful planning and preparation can greatly reduce the chances of you becoming a VICTIM.  There are not enough Law Enforcement Officers available to be everywhere when you need them.  You must take action!

Why spend hundreds of dollars on a security system and pay monitoring fees when you can get the MACE WIRELESS HOME SECURITY SYSTEM for a fraction of the cost? This easy to operate security system will sound an alarm and dial up 5 preset phone numbers to let you know motion has been detected or a door or window has opened in your home. A land line with “tone” dialing is required.

8035520-20wireless20home20security20system
How the Wireless Home Security System Works:
1. When the door/window sensor or motion detector is triggered, it sounds an alarm and sends a signal to the base unit.
2. The base unit dials the first telephone number of your programmed list.
3. The person answering the call will hear a prerecorded alert message.
4. That person will have the option to listen in on the room, broadcast their voice through the base unit, or disarm the system.
5. If there is no answer, or if the person doesn’t disarm the system, it will dial the next number on your programmed list. Includes 1 base unit with AC adaptor, 1 Window/door sensor (wireless transmission up to 250 feet), 1 motion detector (range up to 8 yards) and 1 remote control with panic feature for arming and disarming the unit.

PERSONAL SAFETY

Many of you have heard me say, and I repeat it today – Pepper Spray is a mainstay in the building blocks of personal safety.  You should have a pepper spray on you (where legal of course) when you are away from home, walking down the street, walking to your car in a parking lot.  How many of you have walked to your car late at night through a parking lot?  How many of you will truthfully acknowledge that you wished you had something with you (just in case something were to happen)?

You should always keep a pepper spray in you car, on your person and at home, or apartment or school dorm.  REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM !!!
