Simple self-defense - All should read this (very good !!!!!)

I recently received this email which suggests a good form a self-defense in the event of an attack in your home or office. But reviewed this advice and made some good points. Read the email and read the Snopes article on it, and then decide for yourself if this is something that might be helpful...


Never would have thought of it !!!

I have a friend who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area who was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead. The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn't attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection.

Thought this was interesting and might be of use...

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- has an article about this email. They suggest that pepper spray is a more effective disabling agent than wasp spray and certain pepper spray products do shoot a long distance. They also mention that using wasp spray may not be legal in certain areas and may end up being more harmful than expected. You just read the email, now read the Snopes article and decide for yourself if you want to act on this.
