Dec. 20, 2006 – Watch out Superman, there’s a new hero in town. Metropolis isn’t safe. Recent reports state that crime rates have soared higher in 2006 than in 2005, specifically burglary and rape. Why? And why are we all waiting for Superman, the police or the court system to save us? Why aren’t we standing up for ourselves?

You might have imagined that every possible means of criminal action has been tried already. But never underestimate the human capacity for invention!
Individuals of all ages make it so very easy for violence to occur – they walk around with cell phones, hands full of shopping bags and just being totally oblivious to their surroundings. It is only a matter of time until crime will affect us personally and then our attitude will change – when it’s too late. It is natural for us to feel like this….no one want to believe that anything bad might happen to them. Everyone wants to believe that trouble will never “knock on their door”. Yet, nightly, news reports of violence and theft flood our TVs and radio waves. Listeners pretend not to notice them. And, to be honest, our gut is glad that this misfortune is not ours. The harsh reality is a risk-free environment will never exist. Yes, it is a sad world when citizens have to be on guard all the time, but pretending the danger is not there doesn’t make the reality go away. As in all things, the solution is education. Executive Defense Technology, www.execdeftech.com, can provide that education.
An individual’s best defense against becoming a Victim of any crime is knowing how to reduce or remove the “Opportunity segment” of the “Crime Triangle.” If you prepare and practice, you will be ready for every eventuality
