This is a very timely and important video that everyone should watch. In it, a young woman is walking to her car. Like so many out there today, she is glued to her phone and totally oblivious to what is going on around her. As she gets to her car a man is already out of his with the trunk open. He grabs her from behind and throws her screaming into the trunk, shuts it and drives off. This could happen to anyone, at any time, anywhere. This is the perfect example of why you should have your situational awareness raised to condition yellow. It is also an excellent argument for having a concealed carry permit and being armed.
From American Overlook:
As you know, phones are a major factor when it comes to car accidents. When people text or use their smartphone while behind the wheel, it’s called distracted driving.
But smartphones don’t only put you in danger of a car wreck. Actually, they can make you vulnerable for kidnapping, assault, and other similar attacks.
When you walk around the streets or ride on public transportation, try to count how many people are glued to their phones. It’s almost impossible to keep up.
Every person who has their eyes glued to their device is not aware of their surroundings. They could get hit by a bus if crossing the street or get attacked from behind by a kidnapper.
The video included below is a perfect reminder to always be careful and vigilant – especially when you’re out alone.
In the clip, a young woman gets abducted by a predator while she goes to her car in a parking lot. He grabs her and throws her the trunk of his car.
If the girl had simply been aware of her surroundings, she would have noticed the man looming behind her.
This is even more important after the terrorist attack last week in San Bernardino, California. You just never know when things are going to turn violent and ugly fast. You need to pay attention to what is going on around you at all times. Your life and the lives of those you care about may depend on it. In today’s atmosphere, I don’t recommend that anyone go out alone. But if you need to, for cripes sake, pay attention to what is occurring around you. No text message, video or phone call is worth your life. That can wait… protecting yourself can’t.
