Carjackers,Hijackers and other muggers
« on: March 10, 2008, 08:30:14 pm »

This safety warning was send to me by my mate in Sussex. It still makes me wonder in which world we are living...- if it is true.


An important message from the Police - Please take time to read  this and take note.
 
   Please pass this along to all the women you know.....
 
   This actually happened a few weeks ago on the M3 Fleet services. It
   was early evening and a young girl stopped to get petrol. She filled
   her tank and walked into the store to pay for her petrol.
 
   The cashier told her "Don't pay for your petrol yet.....walk around
   the store for a while and act as if you're picking up some other
   things to buy.
   A man just got into the back of your car. I've called the police and
  they're on their way."
 
   When the police arrived, they found the man in the back seat of the
   girl's car and asked him what he was doing. He replied, he was
  joining  a gang and the initiation to join is to kidnap a woman and bring her
   back to the gang to be raped by every member of the gang. If the
  woman was still alive by the time they finish with her then they let
  her go.
 
   According to the police that night, there is a new gang forming here
   originating from London.
 
   The scary part of this is because the guy didn't have a weapon on
  him.  The police could only charge him with trespassing.... He's back
  on the street and free to try again. Please be aware of what's going on
   around you and for your family and friends. LADIES you or one of
  your  family and friends could be the next victim.
 
   Please forward this on to everyone you know. Please do not discard
   this message it is very important that everyone knows what is
   happening.
 
   Please be careful when leaving your vehicle and make sure it is
  ALWAYS Locked to prevent this from happening to you.
 


   MET POLICE :
 
   Subject: POLICE INFORMATION - NOT A JOKE - ACTUAL SAFETY ADVICE
 
   This first bit is mainly for women, but boys please read it and send
   it on to any women you care about. The second bit is a warning to
  all of us!
 
   Some sound advice for us all as we all sometimes forget to take our
   common sense with us when we go out. This is from Northants Police..
   Women.... In light of the recent kidnapping and now murder of Leigh
   Mathews I think it is important to read the following info for your
   own safety.
 
   Things women should know to stay safe:
   Please Take the time to read these pointers. There may just be
  one or  two you hadn't thought of. After reading this, forward it to
  someone you care about. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we
   live in.
 
   1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your
   body. If you are close enough to use it, do!
 
   2. If a robber asks for your handbag, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Twit it
   away from you.... he is probably more interested in your handbag
  than you and he will go for the handbag. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
 
   3. If you are ever thrown into the boot of a car: Kickout the back
   tail lights and stick your arm through the hole and start waving.
  The driver won't see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
 
   4.Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,
  eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their cheque book, or making a
   list).
 
   DON'T DO THIS! A predator could be watching you, and this is the
   perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, and
   attack you. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND
   LEAVE.
 
   5. A few notes about getting into your car in a carpark:
 
   A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger
   side floor, and check the back seat.
 
   B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car
   from the passenger door. Most attackers surprise their victims by
   pulling them into their van while the women are attempting to get into their
   cars.

   C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and
   the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest
   your car, you may want to walk back into the shop, or work, and
   get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER
  TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
 
   6. ALWAYS take the lift instead of the stairs. Stairwells are
  horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot.
 
   7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his
   control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running
   target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a
   vital organ. RUN!
 
   8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may
   get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a
   good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies
   of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked "for help"
   into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his
   next victim.
 
   9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend
  heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the
   police because it was late and she thought it was weird. The police
   told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door." The lady then said
   that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was
   worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The
   policeman said, "We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do,
   DO NOT open the door."
 
   He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry
  recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone
   dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had
   several calls by women saying that they hear babies' cries outside
   their doors when they're home alone at night.
 
   Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby.
 
   I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may save
   a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. Send this to any
   woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we
   live in has a lot of crazies in it and it's better safe than sorry.

   PLEASE READ. MAY BE HELPFUL AND PLEASE TAKE CARE!! ALL CAR OWNERS
  AND CAR DRIVERS PLEASE READ Warning!!!!
 
   Be aware of new car-jacking scheme. You walk across the car park,
   unlock your car and get inside. Then you lock all your doors, start
   the engine and shift or put into reverse.
 
   You look into the rear-view mirror to back out of your parking space
   and you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear
   window.
 
   So, you shift the gear stick back into park or neutral, unlock your
   doors and jump out of your car to remove that paper or whatever
  it is that is obstructing your view.
 
   When you reach the back of your car that is when the car-jackers
   appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off!!
 
   Your engine was running, you would have left your purse in the
  car and they practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.
 
   BE AWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED IN
   LONDON/MANCHESTER MAKING ITS WAY ACROSS THE COUNTRY!!!!!!!!
 
   Just drive away and remove the paper later! It is stuck to your
  window and be thankful that you read this email. I hope you will forward
  this to friends and family especially to women! A purse contains all
   identification, and you certainly do NOT want someone getting your
   home address. They already HAVE your keys!!!
 
   JUST BE AWARE AND TAKE CARE IT WILL PROBABLY SOON ARRIVE
   IN YOUR AREA

Another hoax I fear, seen too many of them. It's similar to the "flash your headlights and get shot " one. Which is not to say you shouldn't be careful anyway.
