Surveillance Cameras And These Dangerous Times

Mar 27, 2008
You have reasons to be afraid, really afraid. Terrorists and criminals are real. They're ready to pounce where you think you are safe. The proliferation of surveillance cameras in public places is proof of this.

Terrorists and Criminals

Terrorists and petty criminals are getting more and more ruthless every second. They won't let anybody pass. They can and they will harm anybody. Standing your guard is always a must. You can never be too careful.

There are times when going out is inevitable, you have to go out to work, school, or to run errands and staying safe and out of harm's way isn't an option anymore. You can't always rely on surveillance cameras and the police because they aren't always there to help. You should know what to do in case you have an encounter with the bad kind.

Criminals aren't choosy in selecting their victim; they will harm the ones who look vulnerable. Don't count on anybody else and don't count on coming across surveillance cameras on the streets. As they say, it's every man for himself, out on the streets that is. Some people will be scared to help.

There are various ways on how you can protect yourself aside from carrying pepper spray or hiring a big-muscled bodyguard. There are various means of self-defense and there are a lot of places you can learn them. Aside from learning how to kick-butt, you also have to know what to do or what precautions to take in case something disastrous happens.

When You're On Your Own

These tips will help you stay on the safe side and stay alive:

* Be discreet in making your bank transactions (ATM's, withdrawals etc.) especially on the 1st and 15th of the month.

* Avoid wearing excessive jewelry.

* Walk confidently. Never show that you are tense and afraid that something might happen (because in one way or another, someone will sense your fear).

* Be cautious of approaching strangers.

* Avoid carrying too much stuff; you have to have a hand free in case someone tries to assault you.

* Try waiting for public transport in places where there are a lot of people, police or surveillance cameras.

* Always walk on the lighted part of the streets; some sidewalks aren't equipped with streetlights.

* When you're driving, drive with your car doors locked.

* Vary your driving habits and routes. You wouldn't want anybody to be stalking you.

* Always check the backseat of your car before entering.

* Have your emergency numbers on speed dial.

There are other ways to stay safe. When you sense that something bad is about to happen or you feel that somebody is tailing you, trust your instincts. Hurry to a crowded place or places with police, guards or surveillance cameras.

Though you can't always depend on others, surveillance cameras or anything that help you when it counts most; it's important to have emergency numbers on the ready - police, a friend, or your parents. Never take chances when it's your life on the line. Terrorists and criminals show no mercy when they strike, but will think twice before harming you if they know help is coming fast.
